The film and book shouldn't be combined on the same page. They're very different and are both notable works in their respective medium.

Under Unsettling Gender Reveal, someone wrote:

"Eventually, the violently homophobic Begbie caught Renton fondling the transvestite and beat him until he couldn't walk for a couple days."

I'll need a citation for this. I've read the different chapters of the novel numerous times and can't remember this happening. In fact I don't think Begbie ever tried, or wanted to assault Renton, at least not with malevolence, until the events of Porno.
