A person is transgender (or trans) if their gender identity doesn't match their biological sex. Over 1.6 million U.S. adults are openly trans, and an internet celebrity who now identifies as Christine is perhaps the most famous trans person to live in Ruckersville, Virginia.
In 2011, when Chris was 29 years old, he began exploring male-to-female gender transitioning. Starting with cross-dressing, he would gradually try DIY methods to undergo physical transitioning, which were pointless at best and dangerous at worst. In 2016, he began using legitimate means, such as seeing a professional specializing in gender issues and going on prescription hormone therapy later that year. In spite of his best efforts, however, Chris's post-transition appearance remains quite similar to his pre-transition appearance, only he grew his hair out and had some of his fat distribution rearranged through HRT. Nonetheless, Chris believes that he looks like a supermodel. Overall, Chris has seemed to be more at peace with himself being "out" instead of suppressing his gay/trans thoughts, if not outright happier, in spite of his depressing lot in life and poor living conditions.
Chris's identity gradually shifted over the course of his transitioning. He began as a transvestite – a male who cross-dresses yet still identifies as a man – or as Chris called it, "tomgirl". (Outside of Chris's lexicon, "femboy" and "femme" are commonly used to describe this kind of sexual identity in recent years, although Chris himself would not apply after becoming transgender. Nonetheless, Chris actually has used the term "femme" on his Facebook profile.) In 2014, he came out as a "lesbian-identified male". By the end of that year, he began identifying as a woman, calling himself a "transwoman". In 2015, he started going by "Christine", making the name change official the following year, as well as changing the gender marker on his driver's license to female.
While Chris is on the whole committed to his newfound identity, outside opinions are decidedly less so; views by external commentators on social media sites range from fully accepting of Chris's gender and sexuality, to scathingly critical, arguing that Chris is 'only pretending' and 'making the transgender community look bad', the latter a form of gatekeeping. Unsurprisingly, there are also debates on which pronouns to use when describing Chris after December 2014, including from transgender observers themselves. Not helping matters is that Chris has utilized homophobic and transphobic language, even after identifying as being part of the LGBT community. Chris has also attempted to use his identity as a lesbian transwoman as an argument that the people who have banned him from public places are being discriminatory against him and other lesbians and transwomen, much like he has done in the past with his Autism, rather than as retribution for bad behavior.

Signs of gender dysphoria
Gender dysphoria is a feeling of conflict between a person's assigned (birth) gender and the gender that person identifies as, typically brought on by aspects of one's assigned gender. The trans community generally divides dysphoria into physical dysphoria (for aspects like hormones, genitals, or body characteristics) and social dysphoria (for aspects like names, pronouns, gender roles, makeup and clothing).
Symptoms in adults last at least six months and can include a belief of experiencing feelings socially associated with the desired gender, as well as wanting to be rid of the primary sex characteristics of the birth gender, have instead the sex characteristics associated with the desired gender, and be treated socially as the desired gender.
Chris has exhibited signs of late-onset gender dysphoria, a term describing those who begin to experience gender dysphoria in adulthood.
While Chris's experience is more reflective of late-onset gender dysphoria than the idea that Chris was always trans but somehow kept that detail hidden from prying eyes, there have been some signs that can be interpreted as Chris having thoughts of moving away from being cisgendered. Chris's exploration of a female form of himself showed early with his desire to have a daughter named Crystal Weston Chandler. He also added a twin sister (also named Crystal) to the comic who strongly resembles a gender-swapped Chris. The reason behind the name:
|“Crystal”: a name that sounds similar to mine, but it has a nice ring to it.|
In 2008, years before Chris began to crossdress, he made a remark that he felt some mild discomfort from looking at his own penis.
|It's bad enough that I sometimes see my own when I look down (of which I don't feel as much discomfort), but the very sight of others is like kryptonite to me.|
He also has a long history of female fashions and mannerisms, from the Anime Wings seen in Sonichu Sub-Episode 5 to the muscle bra. Chris has even wondered what he would be like if he were born a female. In 2008, he posted:
|I feel that I am truly in touch with my feminine side, to the point where I am capable of learning from that to better understand how to treat women in a caring, nuturing, positive way; I've also learned from Red Skelton of how to be a gentleman. Sometimes I wonder between my caring attitude and the lack of a Sweetheart if I was born the wrong gender; I would wonder what life would have been like if I had actually been born a girl.|
The Butterfly Effect
|Someone said to Chris "You should get in touch with your feminine side!" and he ran wild with it.|
However, when a fan asked Emily if she was the one to make that comment, she gave a different perspective:
|I've jokingly told him that before back when he was a dang dirty male and he would get pissed at me for it. What really kicked off the tomgirl and eventual tranny shit was some rando who was talking to Chris and suggested being a tomgirl since being a guy was too hard for him.|
Both of those accounts are consistent with Gender Dysphoria's symptoms of wanting another gender's characteristics and feeling incompatible with a birth gender's social roles. Later that year, Chris also mentioned that in public places, he felt more comfort using the opposite sex's restroom rather than one matching his gender at birth, which is a common rite of passage for transgender people (even though Chris did not identify as transgender at this time).
Over the next several years, Chris's feelings on his sex characteristics morphed into a loathing of his penis. In 2014, he took to forcing it to stay tucked with a makeshift harness.
|Males Offend Me, even my own Penis Totally Grosses Me Out! I am glad that I tuck it underneath my taint, so I do not have to look down at the Ugly Bulge!|
In 2016, Chris attempted a DIY gender transition using Subliminal Frequency Hypnosis. He was particularly drawn to tracks which claimed to convert a penis to a vagina.
|I would feel better knowing if the ovum do get created and further produced after the testies to ovaries transformation. [...] Ugh, we may not know for as late as six months after someone else uses the frequency set, gets herself examined, and confirms it.|
Chris's dysphoria and impatience over the Subliminal Frequencies resulted in the self-inflicted taint wound, an episode wherein he cut open his taint with a knife in an attempt to free his vagina.
In 2016, Chris saw a psychologist specializing in gender identity issues. The psychologist confirmed to him that he is transgender.
Gender dysphoria explains a lot of Chris's past behavior; an example being Chris's insecurity in failing to live up to cultural perceptions of masculinity. His tendency to exaggerate or overcompensate for his fragile masculinity could be caused by subconsciously knowing that his intellectual gender does not match his biological sex. The way Chris interacted during the Kacey calls is another piece of evidence; normally, guys subconsciously lower the pitch of their voices to seem attractive to women, but when Chris was trying to woo Kacey, his voice drifted higher than hers. Additionally, Chris is known for his pathological hatred of change, unless the change is beneficial or positive for him. To assume Chris "became" trans purely for the quest for china is fairly extreme, as suddenly identifying by another gender identity is generally a life-changing event for anybody, and Chris has shown that he is incapable of substantially changing himself even with the promise of a relationship laid in front of him.
Autism and trans identity
There is a correlation between autism and trans identity, though the exact reason for this correlation is still up for debate. According to a Dutch study, 7.8% of trans people are on the spectrum. There are a number of similarities between the two disorders. Autistic people have a harder time picking up on social norms, including gender norms. Therefore, autistic people tend to have "androgynous" mental qualities and interests, and those people could perceive their brain difference as simply having the brain of the opposite gender. Both autistic and trans males tend to have mostly gal-pals, because men tend to be rowdy and more explicitly judgmental. However, they may miss the socially complex and subtle elements of female socialization, and the actual women end up treating them with kid gloves.
The androgyny of autistic people has caught the interest of brain experts. MRI studies reveal that autistic men have "mosaic minds", which aren't just androgynous, but are extremely male in some aspects and extremely female in others. The autistic brain parts responsible for general thoughts are more masculine than the average man, with less connectivity and more localization. Autistic men excel at systemizing and struggle with empathizing, an exaggeration of the male profile. However, the parts of the brain responsible for sensation, perception and motion are more feminized. Like women, autistics have a high pain tolerance and a low pain threshold – observable in Chris. However, gender differences in the brain are only averages, and saying a man with feminine brain traits has a "female brain" is like saying a short man has a "female skeleton". Also, the gendering of autism is highly controversial, with many pointing out that the condition is a spectrum.
Kenneth Zucker, a controversial gender expert, found that gender dysphoria manifests as an obsession, and that autistic people may think they're trans if they fixate on the issue of gender.
It's also possible that Chris is genuinely transgender, but his transgender signs were "scrambled" through autism. This could be why he adapted nonstandard language for so long, and why he had to "ease into" his trans identity instead of coming out outright. For example, he identified as a tomgirl for years before his transgender identity came to the forefront, and he speaks of a "female soul" more than a "female brain."
|“||Yes, I am a Tomgirl, and I am damn proud of it. I have embraced and appreciated my feminine side. I am still totally heterosexual. Otherwise, I would be a full-blown you-know-what. [...] I have been more self-confident, and I have a sweet sashay walk, hair and wink flirts, and I am greeting women left and right.||”|
|“||Also, here is another way to consider me, I am a Ken doll any Barbie CAN dress in her clothes, and I would feel most comfortable in them and to model them for her. Come shopping with me, sweetie.||”|
|Chris, Jackie email, May 6 2011|
According to an email Chris sent to Jackie on 26 March 2011, Chris started cross-dressing at the beginning of that month. On 30 March 2011, Chris changed his PSN quote to the CWC-ism "I am Tomgirl".
On 29 April, the Tomgirl Pictures were released by Surfshack Tito. In them, Chris is dressed in woman's clothing, posing in what he believes are seductive positions. For some reason, Chris removed the Tomgirl PSN quote immediately after PSN came back online after a month of inactivity on 14 May, possibly due to receiving attention from trolls.
On 16 August 2011, Chris recorded Kaka Makeup Basics, a makeup tutorial video, reinforcing his tomgirl identity.
To show his support to all tomgirls and tomboys of America, he started up a new band, Robee Sonee and the Tomgirls, consisting of a tomgirl, Robee (formerly Robbie, now Roberta), and tomboys Cera and Christine.
Still officially a "heterosexual" and "proud to be male," some of his words and actions betrayed a deeper gender confusion. He started using women’s restrooms. He told Jackie that he fantasized about "fit[ting] in at a lesbian bar," where he believed he would have no trouble seducing a lesbian and persuading her to bone "in lesbian's position (the scissor-thing) with my dick in her vag." In December 2013 he confessed to Rebeckah, "I wish I was born female, with the possibility of being a lesbian."
On 14 August 2014, Chris revealed via Facebook that he was a self-described "Tomgirl, Intersex of Female Soul with Male Body, and a Tranny Cross-Dresser", posting shortly afterward to be a lesbian in a male body. He also proclaimed that he is a supporter of "LBT" rights, which seems to have neatly coincided with the advent of his professed status as a transgender person. His omission of the "G" (Gay) was attacked by Kim, in the face of which Chris admitted that the "G.M.s" were "fortunate" to be "on the boat", suggesting that he hadn't yet changed his views on gay men.
|I had, exhibited but not totally realized my uh, feminine habits and traits and then it became more apparent to me that I was definitely soulfully a woman, due to the vision I had where I saw myself in a past lifetime by the tree at Woodstock and I was a woman then so yep, I'm soulfully a woman, so, so it's a good thing to go on from there and I never regretted it.|
In September 2014, a fan inquired on his preferred gender and pronouns. Chris replied that he was very comfortable being referred to by either pronoun, adding that he would be flattered at being mistaken as a woman. He added that he did not currently have plans to change his name.
He began going to the Impulse Gay Social Club in fall 2014.
|“||I am a (Female Soul) Transwoman (no operation yet), And a Lesbian.||”|
|Chris, January 2015|
In Spring 2015, Chris changed his mind on his pronoun and name and referred to himself as Christine, a "Lesbian TransWoman", using female pronouns.
In May 2015, Chris turned his fursona, Chris-chan Sonichu, into a lesbian transwoman. He also wrote about a fantasy in which Chris-chan Sonichu impregnates himself with his own semen to produce two children.
After being rejected as a sperm donor the previous year, Chris tried his own DIY method to preserve his sperm for the possibility of gender surgery. Chris's Specimen Sample is a video of him showing off his collection of semen in Tupperware containers in his kitchen freezer, and dates on the containers indicate he was doing this for at least nine months, though this was futile as the sperm was destroyed by placing it in a home freezer.
In May 2016, he successfully filed for a name change to "Christine Weston Chandler". Later, with the help of his gender psychologist, he also filed paperwork with the DMV for a new driver's license identifying him as female, which was granted.
Chris was unaware that he also had the option to update his birth certificate; upon finding out, he decided not to, stating:
|I had no idea one can update their birth certificate too. For me though, I’d leave mine the way it is, because I am not going to deny my own history and past. I was born male, and dubbed “Christopher”, but I realized I was female the whole time and changed my name to “Christine” soon enough. And to have those on my drivers license is good enough for me.|
- Main article: Bisexual
In early 2018, Chris suddenly announced that he identified as bisexual rather than lesbian - the result of brainwashing from the Idea Guys to make Chris think he was in relationships with fictional male characters.
Interest in sexual reassignment surgery
In the years before he formally identified as transgender, Chris had given some thought to sex reassignment surgeries. In 2007 he told Megan, “if I ever stoop down to changing my path [i.e., becoming a homo], I might as well would get a gender change operation.”
Chris's thoughts on the procedure shifted over time. In his pre- and early-transgender state, his opinion was essentially that MTF transwomen should not undertake the surgery as it would not grant them functional female reproductive organs. Later, as his gender identity changed, he became more open to the idea, but wanted to hold off until either Crystal was conceived or his sperm could be preserved.
|“||If [my child was a] Hermaphrodite, I would raise it to be male regardless since it would not have any eggs anyway. Plus big bonus for (him) in sex with all women (lesbians included I would imagine).||”|
In other words, there were two obstacles in the way of Chris losing his duck. First, a sex change operation wouldn’t provide him with reproductive organs. Since, as a woman, he would not be able to give the birth to Crystal personally, he must first impregnate someone (he can’t adopt, because Crystal must come from "blood, tears, and semenal descent.") Second, his belief that his penis could still be useful for relationship purposes - wanting to be "open to all women, Straight, Bi, and Lesbian." In a May 2015 Facebook Q&A, regarding the operation, he was equivocal, and wrote, "I am exploring making the best of this body for Any Woman born with a vagina."
During 2014, Chris stated that he was contemplating sexual reassignment surgery.
|“||I Hate Being Born A Male, and after I have my children, I am getting an Organ Sex Change Operation!||”|
|Chris, hoping to impregnate someone who will give him a baby boy and a baby girl.|
It should also be noted that Chris doesn’t have a fucking clue how sex reassignment works. In June 2015 he posted an advertisement on Facebook: “I deserve to be a full woman with a full functioning vagina. A- blood type, if anyone wants to put up the money and trade.” As with most things he wants, Chris prefers to sit on his fat lesbian ass and wait for "a Magical Transformation of my body from Male to completely Female."
In 2020, when Chris was asked about if he would be getting a sexual reassignment surgery, he answered with the following:
|“||Yes, and this body is going to become fully, genuinely transformed and birth-able.||”|
Chris, presumably realizing that his semen would no longer be potent enough to conceive a child due to hormone replacement therapy that he was utilizing, now seems to think that he's got another way to make Crystal and Reginald real. It goes without saying that Male-To-Female transgender people cannot conceive children due to the way that a natural male body is structured, and even though research on the possibility of transplanting a uterus into an MTF body is being done, it would likely be way too expensive for Chris to try, presuming that he'd even be healthy enough or physically capable of bearing children by the time that such a medical breakthrough could be realized. How Chris plans to get the money to get a sex change or a hypothetical uterine transplantation amidst the Financhu Crisis remains unclear; it's entirely possible that Chris believes that some part of the Dimensional Merge will allow him to fully become a woman and allow him to fulfill his fantasy of becoming a parent.
Not that Chris could afford sex reassignment anyway, as it costs thousands of dollars, while Chris struggles to pay his basic bills and spends what little he does save on frivolities like trips to BronyCon.
List of Chris's MTF transition methods
Chris has made several attempts to transition into a true and honest woman. Unfortunately for him, he has a strong belief in junk science and miracle cures. As a result, his initial favored methods produced no benefits or were harmful to his health.
In 2016, he saw a psychologist over his gender transition.
- Growing out his hair
- Changing his clothing
- Shaving his eyebrows
- Using menstrual pads
- Piercing his taint and letting it get inflamed
- Requesting his fans to fund a prosthetic vagina
- Wearing a vibrating bra
- Taking Oestrogel without physician approval
- Subliminal Frequency Hypnosis
- Breast massaging
- Cutting open his taint with a knife
- Female hormone vitamins
- Going on actual hormone replacement therapy
- Eating prunes and putting soy sauce on everything
Chris has been making an effort to feminize his voice, but instead of pulling off a convincing femme voice like some other trans women (or simply just not bothering, given his voice is naturally high on its own, and there are trans women who have chosen not to get voice treatments), he talks with a Mickey Mouse falsetto. The falsetto often drops down to his old voice at some point in a given video, sometimes as soon as he introduces himself. He has also ditched his monotone speech pattern for an extreme sing-song tone, especially when he adds bits of random-access humor. In Q&A NO MORE, he continued to affect a feminine voice when he was yelling, resulting in a cartoonish witch-like scream.
At first, between 2015 through fall 2016, Chris attempted using Oestrogel as a DIY hormone therapy method. Since Oestrogel is a hormone replacement gel meant for menopausal women, and Chris's self-regimen consisted of slathering entirely too much of the medication on himself, any effects were questionable and a potential health risk.
|Basically if you say the right things to a therapist for a few months, they'll write you a recommendation for HRT and send you to an endocrinologist. Chris was referred to one at UVA. They gave him a script and made him sign away liability (the "informed consent" part).|
Chris also mentioned taking hormones to Idea Guy:
|I can say that Chris knows the fact that he shortened his lifespan taking those hormones. In fact, I wouldn’t say he’s suicidal, so much as he’s fine with the idea he could die sooner. I dunno if it counts as his view of reality, but Chris thinks he might be able to have a baby once the transition is complete (I have nothing to do with that. Chris said it’s a possibility he could get pregnant).|
Chris's health insurance, the taxpayer-funded Medicare program, covers HRT.
Being a rural southerner, Chris comes from a conservative region and background. His parents are conservative, and anti-LGBT sentiment is strong outside college and LGBT circles. In addition, forums documenting Chris (from 4chan to Kiwi Farms) tend to be "politically incorrect" and tell things "like it is". As you'd might expect, reactions to Chris's transition are overwhelmingly negative.
Chris's parents were not happy when he began crossdressing. Bob "threw the damned 'fag' card" at Chris. Barbara made negative remarks, such as "I didn't raise a daughter", "do not wear eye shadow", "you look like a prostitute", "lipstick makes you look like a hooker", "you're turning into a gay", "what are you piercing next?" and "what's next, you wearing a skirt and high heels?".
Barbara also tried to pay Chris to stop wearing panties and go back to wearing briefs – however, Chris refused.
|My mother comes upstairs and yells at me about how She Thinks I'm turning queer from being Tomgirly and Feminine, AND she fears that I would kill her. Hand to God, I would never kill Anyone, including my own mother and father. Violence and Murder is Rarely the answer; murder is Morally Wrong; I care about my mother and father Very Much. And even worse, she threatens to kill me in her episode of emotional rage. She also took my keys. And shortly later, she tells me to come downstairs, so I go; she tells me to sit down, and she does the worse thing that broke the last straw on my camel's back, she Cuts my Long Hair Short and Butchered. After seeing the butchered hair in the mirror, I was soo in shock, I wield the double-edge sword I have been holding in for weeks since a much earlier fit of emotional rage of hers. I called her a Bitch. With her as a bitch, that makes me a son of a bitch, and it hurts me deep too. My hair is soo bad, I have to wear my PaRappa wool hat to cover the whole mess when I go out; I can not be seen in public with this short-hair mess.|
Chris then remarked, "I forgave her for the butchering of my hair today, but now while I still care and love her like a child for a mother, sadly there is now a Mutual lack of deep trust between us."
Before Bob passed away in the fall of 2011, he told Chris he accepted and loved him for who he is.
Over the next few years, Barbara remained opposed to Chris's crossdressing. Chris stated in 2014: "I would cross dress more often if my mother was not against me doing it (panties and bra included, but wear them anyway)." However, Barbara's resistance gradually diminished and Chris resumed openly crossdressing. When Chris legally changed his name to Christine in 2016, he did so behind Barb's back, though she later found out and was livid with him.
Chris's gender identity may be the only significant thing in which he has successfully resisted the will of his parents.
In May 2011, Chris recounted an experience where he got yelled at by a jerkop for going to the women's restroom and said that, though he felt embarrassed, he would continue using the women's restroom while crossdressing as "there is no goin' back for me".
In a January 2019 tweet, Chris claimed his neighbor "across the street from me shouted angrily at me; blaming me for his child questioning their Gender Identity".
Chris's fans and followers generally have a negative view of Chris's transition, with many questioning whether it is legitimate or not, and tend to refer to Chris using male pronouns and his pre-transition name, a trend extending to this very wiki.
Effect on the Love Quest
|“||And for nothing more than the experience, you may give me a try in private. Protected and no penetration required. I have an open mind for what you may desire. traditional for the straight women. clit-rubbing and pussy eating for the lesbians. And any way for the bisexual women. Massages, making out, lots of attention and eye contact, and whatever else desired, for all Women regardless of orientation!||”|
|Chris, May 2015|
|“||And one can view the male part like an extended clitoris, regardless of what it actually is. Put a condom on it, and rub the side against a clitoris, not only Really does good for me, but I imagine and empathize stimulating for her as well.||”|
Chris's gender dysphoria issues influenced the scope of his love quest. As Chris is biologically male while identifying as a female, but still heterosexual, he remained attracted only to women. To resolve this, he identified as a lesbian in order to address both his gender identity and sexuality. Chris also tried to leverage his biologically male body in an attempt to appeal to women of other sexual orientations. On various occasions, Chris has made statements to the effect of him being "compatible with all women", or that he can "go any way [a woman] desire[s]". In practice, Chris actually reduced his female dating pool dramatically – straight women are the majority, and they generally are not attracted to trans women. Chris is essentially limited to lesbian and bisexual women who are open to dating trans women, and that's ignoring actual interpersonal chemistry.
All of Chris's prior problems with establishing a real romantic relationship with anyone pre-transition are still present. His attempt to get to the point and solicit sex also fell through, much like it did previously – mainly because Chris is perceived as being undesirable as a romantic partner for a multitude of reasons.
Ultimately, Chris would give up on trying to find a real boyfriend-free girl and would instead engage in a polyamorous marriage with several imaginary friends after being encouraged to do so by the Idea Guys, although he would later indicate dissatisfaction with not being romantically involved with real people. This came to a head in June 2021, when he is alleged to have begun incestuous acts against his own mother. When the authorities took him away, he was booked into Central Virginia Regional Jail under his True and Honest Godbear-given gender.
Influence from the LGBT community
Chris followed a Facebook account named Lizzy the Lezzy. In September 2015, he liked a post linking to a clickbait article about a vibrating bra with the claim it could increase breast size in a week. A few months later, Chris made his own vibrating bra contraption.
He also followed LGBT News. In May 2017, he commented on a post from them which linked to a theoretical article about a possible surgery for trans-women to become pregnant.
|“||Ah-Ha! I Knew it! I can eventually be a mother! :)||”|
Chris also followed outspoken members of the trans community on Twitter and sometimes agrees with their statements.
One such example is when LifeofBria claimed that trans women have periods:
|Nobody teaches trans girls about our periods. We just get these weird times where we're moody and crampy and sad and we don't know why and just chalk it up to another reason we're not good enough in life. So, just so you all know: Trans. Girls. Get. Periods.|
|“||Yes we do. Even the possible hot flashes are no fun either. I’m feeling some of my period today. At least they pass and we can feel better when they do. 😊||”|
|“||I'm neutral about people calling me "Chris" or "Christine" but I would like if you Good People would respect my chosen name.||”|
|Chris's paradoxical thoughts on the matter.|
|“||***Christine*** you FUCKING INTERNET DOUCHEWHORE!||”|
During his transition, Chris has occasionally become annoyed at people for referring to him as Chris instead of Christine, despite the fact that Chris (as a short form name) is unisex. He doesn't have an issue with "Chris Chan", seeing that "Chris Chan Sonichu" is his Twitter name.
The sole exception occurred under troll manipulation, in which he flip-flopped between referring to the troll transwoman character Jeff Ouzuo with female and male pronouns.
While exploring his gender identity, he navigated a linguistic minefield of transgender, transsexual, transvestite, intersex, bisexual, hermaphrodite, and his own tomgirl, leading to some confusion as he adapted and experimented. On his OKCupid profile, when asked, "Would you date a transgender person," he replied, "Yes, as long as she was born female and was still female (or a tomboy)." He told Jackie that the fact that he loved wearing women’s clothing did not make him a “transvestite.” He told gal-pal Rebeckah Bentley that the unclit made him “bisexual” when he meant intersex; he promptly flipped his shit when Rebeckah asked if he wanted to fuck dudes now. Chris also used the term tranny to describe himself prior to actually committing to being transgender, which is a can of worms due to its association as a derogatory term against trans people.
On 14 August 2014, he came out publicly, although as what exactly wasn’t certain, given his garbled and inconsistent vocabulary. The initial announcement was that he was "a Tomgirl, Intersex of Female Soul with Male Body, and a Tranny Cross-Dresser." Apparently unbeknownst to Chris, intersex is a chromosomal condition causing ambiguous genitalia and can present in many forms, none of which appear to be true of Chris. Then he said he was a "Lesbian Identified Man and a Cross-Dressing Tranny." Two weeks later he was telling Catherine that he was a "Lesbian tomgirl transgender male" but also "three-quarters woman." By September he seemed to have settled on "Lesbian Transgender (a Female, Lesbian Soul trapped in a male body)." In April 2015, apparently no longer a "man," he changed his Facebook pronoun to "she" and his name to "Christine". This month also saw the beginning of a flurry of Facebook "likes" for all sorts of progressive transgender issues, such as restroom choice and gay marriage. Whatever he was, he was certainly proud of it, and wasted no time trying to persuade his new L(G)BT personal army to wage war against local manajerks.
In the comic
Before exploring transgenderism, Chris used the intersex character Silvana to symbolize the evil trolls. The evil Count Graduon told her, “I am going to grant you with the power to transform like a Ditto. My price is that you will have to relinquish your ability to give birth, and you will be upgraded to have both parts. So with the biological upgrade complete, your years of training can begin.” She proceeded to seduce and horrify the tranquil community.
In Sonichu 11, Collosal Chris-Chan learns of his future self's identity and reflects on it, reasoning that he is not fond of partaking in "brutish things" following his meaningless destruction of the 4-cent garbage building and subsequent murdering of several inhabitants, his battle with Mary Lee Walsh in which he permanently paralyzes her with lighting-based weaponry, and his then-retconned execution of the Asperpedia Four. Chris then magically starts transforming into a voluptuous woman, a sequence inspired by artist Miss Mako and her collection of genderbending videos. To him, transitioning is a technique that simply requires an epiphany and anchuent powers to immediately turn into a full-fledged woman.
Chris drew his avatar - Chris Chan Sonichu/[Christian Weston Chandler (comic character)|Comic Chris]] - with the traits he's always desired since becoming a tomgirl, such as eyelashes, bigger breasts and wider hips, revealing very much of what kind of results Chris wishes to get from his transition. Chris Chan Sonichu and Comic Chris are become canonically transgender - becoming a D-cup female with “a uterus and ovaries,” who became pregnant with twins via self-insemination with a turkey baster containing his own semen. Miscellaneous design changes for the transgender Chris Chan Sonichu include the trademark female Pikachu tail; and the color of his shoes change from black and white to turquoise and lime green.
Sonichu #12 features a short autobiographical narrative of Chris's gender transition at the conclusion of Episode 26.

|Delusion disclosure: This article or section takes place during Chris's phase of role-playing as Sonichu. He may refer to his Christine Chandler personality and physical body in the third person by using terms such as "mama".|
|“||And, yes, in more recent days, Chris had felt need to attest her own identity by using mascara on my face. Not my cup of tea, to put it lightly.||”|
|"Sonichu" expresses disapproval over Chris putting mascara on him.|
As a spin-off of his Dimensional Merge coping mechanism, Chris has claimed that he has swapped bodies with imaginary friend Sonichu, allowing Chris's spirit to manage affairs in dimension C-197. This has resulted in psychological conflict between Chris's escapism and his gender dysphoria issues, as the imaginary friend Sonichu identifies as a male while Chris identifies as a female. In a tweet from 18 January 2021, "Sonichu"-in-Chris's-body complained about Chris-in-Sonichu's-body putting mascara on.

- Chris changed the gender marker on his driver's license to identify him as female in 2016. The procedure to do this in Virginia is to have a professional whose "practice includes the treatment and counseling of persons with gender identity issues" vouch for the person's gender identity on this form.
