Not as a playable character, though it would be funny to see some drag queens in a FF game.

The day I start caring about transsexuals being represented in the series is the day I see homosexual characters become a source of meaning to the plot. It did nothing for Vaan's portrayal and "personality" in FFXII.

So yes, but I probably won't see it in my lifetime.

In a way, Quina was already a trans.

I have difficulty finding ways in which stating that a character is transsexual can be necessary. You can make a homosexual/lesbian character where any relationship is a notable and prominent part of the game, but I'm not sure that you can do the same with a transsexual character without forcing the discussion on the gamers. Handling a social issue for the sake of doing so often leads to bad results, so I'd be against it in that sense. If the character can be done in a way that brings attention to the character being transsexual without seeming forced and unnecessary, I am entirely in favor of it. Positively displaying someone that is, unfortunately, not entirely accepted in society is very beneficial towards the growing acceptance of that person/group, but again, making the character seemed forced is often more harmful than anything.

It would need to be in a really scifi styled one like FFVIII though. Otherwise there wouldn't be spaceships for the Transsexuals to get here from Transylvania.
Oh delightful! The KH boards have gone to complete s*** and I was looking for a new place to chill.
