Re: [Yuricon] Tenshi na Konamaiki...
Wow, thats deep, crazy even. Gender issues suck, plain and simple, they suck!!!! As for what to consider a male TG who likes women, I personally think that its impossible to decide what we are for the simple fact that its impossible to decide what side of the gender fence you stand on, it changes day to day (believe me, I'm probly about as confused as Kat was in high-school), though, I at least relate more with being a lesbian than a straight guy. wow, that was a really random tangent, ehh? guess its the by-product of cross-dressing for a day at school, I got the best looks ever.
PS: anyone wanna see my halloween picture?? I think its hilarious, and geeeez, shaving legs is a pain!!!

Asking these kind of questions is getting deep into gender issues. In the
Anime the girl truly believes that 6 years ago she was a Boy and the only
person who beleives her is her best friend. All records, photos and
everything state the character is a girl but she still beleives that she is
a boy. The twist of having a mage turn her into a girl for 10 years is just
a twist. It is the same question being asked time and time again. Is a male
to female TG a Lesiban if they like girls? Or the reverse. This is why I
don't like labeling something. Thenchi Na Konamaiki is a Shoujo and leave it
at that. If you start discussing if it is yaoi, Yuri or what ever you'll
just run yourself in circles. I think of the story as an interesting look at
gender roles and hope that the whole wizard think just becomes some bad
story. I'll probly give an odd twist in the end. Sort of like Chiraity,
Shiori is in love with Carol but she isn't male nor female (shapshifter) In
the end it was Shori who decided that she loved Carol as a girl... I'm
getting muddled just thinking about it.
This is coming from someone who was confused as hell in high school, went
from straight to gay, Dressd as a boy, changed names daily and generally
caused a huge mess in school with the girls. (okay I was stupid and
confused) I didn't come to call myself a Dkye until 3 years ago and even
that was a gradual thing.
Con goer: Umm.. What are you exactly?
Kat: I'm Kat.
Con goer: I mean are you a boy or a girl?
Kat: I'm Kat and that is all you need to know >^_^<
(PS: sorry if this post seems alittle edgy, getting little sleep from this
cough and needed to get that of my mind. Also I do like the anime and want
to find more. )
