Two issues here. Firstly, a sign doesn't make for a good illustration. I am not even sure if the question posed is getting the trope's point across. Secondly, I don't know if we are allowed to use this image.

Good points. I'm inclined to BUPKIS this one.

Definitely BUPKIS.

I found the original source, which includes a copyright notice at the top-right. Nuke it.

As for the replacement, should be either a) a character asserting that a trans-female character likes guys (or the other way around), or b) someone suggests to a gay character that they switch genders.

I think the question illustrates this trope, and I don't see how this violates anything in About Images and Copyright. Weak Keep Until Better Image Suggested.

[up]The page I linked to doesn't say a copyright notice on the page the image is found on means we can't use it; most images we use here are fair use anyway.

[up] I suppose. I'm new here, so I'll switch to Abstain for now.

The current is not illustrative, though I don't think it's a BUPKIS case.

Spiral out, keep going.

Pull, but not necessarily BUPKIS. Out of context, there wouldn't be any indication that the use of the phrase "regular gay guy" comes from a misunderstanding of what transgender means.

[up] Why not? It's clearly (someone presenting as) a woman.

It's only now that I realize the sign means that the person in the chair is a transgender (not a woman) being faced with that prejudice. The copyright problem is still on.

The clock's up and the consensus is that the pic is too problematic to get the trope across, so it's gone and the page is tagged. Locking up.

Despite what people will have you believe in fiction, gender identity and sexual orientation are two separate things.
