Is Chris meant to be a trans woman, or explicitly a man, in disguise, in drag? Just wanted to make sure the writers weren't spitting in my fucking face. Thanks.

I just replayed that section of the game to refresh my memory. The character isn't transgender. He's a thief with a reputation as a "master of disguise" who put on a dress to confuse pursuers. His insulted response is not genuine injury but an attempt to maintain his "cover". Sometimes a dude in a dress is just a dude in a dress. :) Sorry to see this sequence upset you.

Note that I'm not a writer nor an inXile employee so I don't speak for them.

Hmmm. Alright. I must have failed to notice that part of Manny's dialogue. You probably wouldn't be surprised how often writers stoop to writing stereotypes like that, and that sounded like much of the same thing. Still in poor taste.
