Is Chris Chan a trans woman? Sonichu creator changed gender to seduce lesbians, emails suggest

A heated debate started on Twitter following Chris Chan’s arrest after the Sonichu comic creator was accused of sexually assaulting her 80-year-old mother, Barbara Anne Weston who suffers from dementia. Many in the transgender community refuse to acknowledge the fact that Chan, whose full name is Christine Weston “Chris” Chandler, identifies as a trans woman. Some have refused to use even use the pronoun “she” for Chan after old emails suggested that the YouTuber only wanted to change her gender to score with lesbians. 

Chan made headlines over the weekend after she was ‘exposed’ on social media. Her chat records, that revealed explicit details about how she raped her mother Barb, got leaked online. On August 1, 2021, Chan was spotted being handcuffed and taken into custody by Greene County Police, a day after the 39-year-old was reportedly removed from her home. After the shocking allegations against her went viral, every facet of Chan’s life was brought under scrutiny, including emails she had sent to someone named Jackie back in 2011.

“Still officially a ‘heterosexual’ and ‘proud to be male,’ some of his words and actions [however] 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,'” a Google page for Sonichu stated. 


‘Chris Chan does not represent LGBT community’

As screenshots of the page went viral, people on Twitter started slamming Chan, refusing to call her by the gender she identifies with. “To all trans people defending the misgendering of chris chan: F**king stop dude. He has made it more than clear over the years his transition is a deception. he has done it purely to ‘have sex with lesbian women’. He does not care about his pronouns,” one of them said, while another noted, “Calling Chris Chan (a man who mutilated his body with a box cutter because 4chan said he was a girl, holds a deep hatred for men and most women, decided to be a girl so he could hookup with lesbians, and now abused him mom) ‘she’ is disrespectful to & delegitimizes trans people.”


A third quipped, “Chris Chan should not and does not represent the LGBT community. Their actions are deplorable, fighting over their pronouns doesn’t help anyone. also they only wanted to be trans to sleep with some lesbians apparently.” Another remarked, “I feel bad for this but I deada** don’t think Chris Chan is valid as trans woman because quite literally they started identifying as trans to score with lesbians so it’s a dilemma tbh on to respect the pronouns.” The next commented, “I already talked about it a bit yesterday, but since there are so many people who really believe Chris is trans: Fun fact: Chris-Chan isn’t trans and only started taking HRT and dressing up like a girl, because he unironically believed cis lesbians aren’t as picky as straight.”

A commenter said, “Chris Chan straight up said the reason why he “transitioned” was because he thought it would let him sleep with Lesbians as well as straight women. I think it does a disservice to the trans community to put him in with them.” A person reacted with, “I might have my info wrong but didn’t Chris-chan only come out as trans to try and get with lesbians and just to be in lgbtq?”














Is Chris Chan a trans woman?

The 39-year-old YouTuber originally identified as a male. However, over the years, she discovered her identity as a transgender woman. In September 2011, Chan claimed to be a “tomgirl” while going through gender dysmorphia. In 2016, she went on to change her name to Christine and came out as transgender. However, it has to be noted that some of her close associates such as Null, the operator of the Kiwi Forums, and Joshua Moon, the organizer of Chan’s presently terminated GoFundMe page, refer to her as a man. Henrico County Sheriff’s Office, which is handling Chan’s sexual assault case, officially identified her as a woman in the arrest report.

According to Sonichu’s Google page, Chan began exploring male-to-female gender transitioning at the age of 29. “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,” the website said.
