I finally saw the new episode of Sailor Moon Crystal: Jupiter.
It’s like they listened to all those rumors from the original series about Makoto being trans and just said “Yeah, let’s run with that!” Literally every scene is a…
Fine point I really don’t know nothing.. just after reading da post I watch the episode 3 times to see if I can spot da signs yall was seeing. I’m just a knowledge whore I just wanted to know show still great either way
You know, I really respect that position. So here are 15 points at which I said “This feels familiar…”
Standard availability girls’ clothes don’t fit Makoto
Girls don’t get transferred to new schools for getting in “a” fight. They get transferred when they’re “causing a disruption” or having fights picked with them every day.
Trans girls early in transition tend to be stronger than you’d expect. Also, Makoto, like all trans girl, can catch a softball with her bare hands. This is our power. This is our curse.
Makoto is not used to being complemented for her feminine features.
Tall, leggy, cis redheads aren’t usually avoided in high schools.
Someone’s parents kicked her out. And this time it wasn’t Usagi’s.
As above, Makoto’s been in some fights. Which seems a little strange because she’s been extremely feminine and shy so far…
Makoto, literally admitting no one has ever called her “little girl.”
Despite being in junior high, she seems to be completely fascinated by what appears to be her first contact with a wedding dress—or at least the idea that she could wear one.
Again, she’s not used to people calling her girly. At leats not as a positive trait.
Makoto is the only girl snatched by the Bride Ghost yoma, which tells me that the Negaverse is full of transphobic douchebags.
Nephrite, confirming that yes: The Negaverse is full of transphobic douchebags.
Lots of girls know what it’s like to be turned down by a guy they’re crushing on. Not a lot of girls know what it’s like to have a penis, be kicked out by their parents, and then have to befriend Usagi…
Yeah, sure, that something might have been superpowers. Or it might have been autonomy. Also friends.
And don’t even get me started about how every time she talked about “sempai” it felt like she was embarrassed by meeting a guy who looks like she used to pre-transition.
