Gender by JHALLpokemon Gender by JHALLpokemon
Totally pro trans, pro personal choice, but I find it a tad silly when people act like the male/female dichotomy is a personal affront to them.

Well, for non-binary people it does suck, but oh well.

Whether girl, boy, both or neither...I mostly wish people would just see the people behind whatever they define themselves as.

Tumblr's Social Justice community is gonna be so maaad if they see this. Hope you haven't posted too much personal information because some of them will actively try to ruin your life for it.

No, seriously. They've made death threats and sent people pictures of their houses before.

Yup, have three sprites that are completely different characters with different personalities and canon names... and intertwined backstories. And later these three characters meet, get three Pokèmon of the grass\fire\water types, become friends, travel sorta together, and you get to choose the teams for all 3 of them. (and you actually play as all 3 depending on the scene.)

or they just want kids to know that other people are ok. my cousin was never told about transgendered people so now he thinks they're all disturbing freaks he needs to completely avoid, like he'll be eaten alive or something

To put it in a video game for them is a big ask though. They won't understand then it's left to the parents to try & explain it. If they don't know or have the mind set that they're sub-human then it really only spreads hate & ignorance. It's stupid to expect it to be put in a game when you'd then have to side track from the entire thing to make sure the audience understands what transgender means. People don't play Pokemon for the gender debate they play to catch monsters. Stuff like this is better left to more effective ways of communicating it & a child's game isn't 1 of those ways

They won't understand anything positively most of the time, unless taught at a young age that it's ok, which is partially why you see so much gay hate.
Also, they should put at least one openly homosexual character in the games, not all sassy and POSSIBLY gay like Mr. Stu Deeoh (wow, what an uncreative name for the Pokestar Studios manager), but able to actually say they are.

I agree about the gay character but transgender is a bit too big of a concept for children to wrap their heads around. It's basically trying to explain why a man sees themself as a woman or vice versa. Some of them just won't get it & will be confused about the whole thing. They have a better chance of understanding gay & lesbian characters because you can ease them into it by getting them to understand that some men love other men & some women love other women & it's ok then as they get older & they're able to understand more then you can explain more

I think you're confused about what being Transgender is. It's not about "seeing yourself" as the "opposite" gender. It is literally being the "opposite" gender in terms of brain chemistry. It isn't a hard concept to teach children that gender, like sexuality, is not determined by mundane things like genitals. If my nephew can understand that his uncle is a biological female, yet still a man, I think other children can too. You're make it seem like children are stupid, and they really aren't. So far, children have understood more easily, and more readily than people in my age group. I know from personal experience, and my guess is that you're talking out of your ass.

Wow that's completely offensive & uncalled for. I know some children can't understand the concept that are in the age group likely to start playing Pokemon games. I know what transgender is but there are people that see themself as not having a gender too & some trans people actually say they see themself as being the opposite gender from either a young age or a certain point in their lives. I know transgender people that both have openly said they always saw themself as being the wrong gender & others that don't consider themselves to have a gender. Not everyone can grasp the concept of someone being born 1 gender & being another later on & many children fall in that catergory. To try & explain it in a game would be impossible without some parents having to sit their child down & explain. A lot of parents wouldn't do that & would accuse Game Freak of "corrupting their children". I'm not talking out of my arse at all I understand that some people can't grasp that concept like you clearly can't grasp that idea. Maybe try toning down the offensive attitude next time you just come across as a pompus prick.

Lucky you, you don't get physical messages sent to your brain telling you your body is different from what it is at birth. Transsexualism isn't a trend.
