trans & enby rep in media

Recommended Posts

a thread for folks to talk about canonically/headcanoned trans & enby characters in media. disagreements and discussions are ok but stay civil

i do have a speculative analysis abt such a character in the quote below as my own entry to this thread

Quote

i dont know a canonically nonbinary character but i do know a gender nonconforming character that has got everyone questioning their gender and i think its still debated; pitou from hxh. they have a fairly androgynous appearance despite leaning towards femininity more and all the pronouns when referring to them are neutral. pitous sex nor gender was confirmed despite the majority of the fanbase thinking theyre a cis female just because of their appearance

its funny really how people assumes sex and gender of a character based on their body shape and gender expression while appearance doesnt do anything to prove their sex nor gender. heck. theyre not even human. body types of chimera ants are really diverse so who are we to assume? if the author are trying to be subtle about it; then dont assume anything

to me and a few others pitou is just a gender nonconforming and apathetic individual who couldnt give more of a flying fuck about gender. after all they had barely lived over a month. so theres really no point debating about their gender

cool cool. it doesnt have a good reputation which is why i never looked into it. i was a dsmp fan for a short period of time then i just grew out of it and never caught up with the lore. it became insanely boring to me at the exile arc and i just cant hyperfixate on it anymore

Oop, ngl I hadnt paid much attention when Tommy when into exile since it was mostly boring as hellย 

I mean yeah all those haters surrounding the dsmp community doesn't give it a good rep TvT

i find the dsmp fandom a lil cringe atp but its whatever. i grew out of that phase and dont have any strong feelings. the controversy surrounding dream as a content creator is still a bit icky so i try to distance myself from the dsmp fandom as much as possibleย

trust me i'd happily list reasons for most of the headcanons, but yes, there's a lot of lore, and also some of them are just gut feelings as a trans guy myself (with maybe a touch of projection)ย

yeah i have a problem with becoming attached to characters and responding by bestowing my transness on themย 

same thing with asexuality- if a character does not specifically express some flavour of sexual attraction i'm like 'aw, look, and asexual just like me. wanna invade denmark and eat garlic bread?'

i remember whenever i see a female character that basically passes like a boy i hc them as transmasc. not necessarily a trans man bc i want to stick to canon still but i think they would have a more masculine gender in the nbspec. im also a transmasc enby so im really just pushing my own quote unquote gay agenda onto them lmao

The real gay agenda is just headcanoning characters as part of the LGBTQIA+ community lol

Spoilers for basically the entire plot of The Marvelous Land of Oz (the second book in the Oz series if you're unfamiliar) but Tip is very trans.

Spoiler

He's actually Princess Ozma, but Mombi transformed her into a boy shortly after she was born, and he lived like that until Glinda discovered who he was and forced Mombi to turn him back into a girl.

She's maybe more genderfluid than trans because she's very much a boy and then equally as much a girl, but it still feels like a (probably unintentional) trans allegory either way.

This results in some very good quotes like "I might try it for awhile,โ€”just to see how it seems, you know. But if I don't like being a girl you must promise to change me into a boy again" and "I hope none of you will care less for me than you did before. I'm just the same Tip, you know."

Also, I grew up with the John R Neill illustrations of him so this isn't how I picture him in my head but I just found this drawing of him (can't find the source unfortunately) and it's very gender so here

it kind of sounds like bigender to me ngl bc bro only feels connection to two genders. but anyway
