Simply commenting to state that eddill above is incorrect about the band losing "all but one of the original band members." While Andrew Seward had been with the band for quite awhile, the drummer that left - Jay Weinberg - was relatively new and had only been with Against Me for 2 or 3 years. He left Against Me to become the drummer for Slipknot. While the split seems less than amicable (because he left them by leaving a message on Twitter), so do many of his other exits from other bands. There's no statement that he left because of Laura Jane Grace being trans.
As for Andrew Seward, who'd been with the band more than a decade but also still wasn't an "original band member," most signs point to just being tired of touring and wanting to spend time with family. His leaving message on Twitter specifically states "respect to Laura and James" (the other remaining band members). Seward also described this very album as "f----ing killer."

I've listened to the band before and collected their work but the title of this one caught my attention. Was it going to be some mocking humor about transgenderism? It turns out, the lead singer IS a transsexual, although I don't remember if he is presently pre-op or post-op or no op. I do know he's changed his name to a female one. Unfortunately, due to this, I'm guessing, he lost all but one of the original band members. The others were evidently uncomfortable with the situation.

The band is punk and it will be interesting to see if this hurts them amongst their fans. I have noticed that the ratings for the album are some of the best they've ever had.
