I am new to this manga and i saw the tag HET. I am looking for yuri only, and i would like if someone told me if there actually is any het in it. Like lets say...... if one of the girl actually has or has had sex with any of the boys and stuff like that.
Yeah. Not shown explicitly, but Hotaru has sex with her boyfriend.
That's kind of funny to read, since you'd think a med student of all people would realize that absolutely zero of that has any impact on the quality of the sperm. Being rich or honourable or having a good relationship with your parents aren't genetic, and being smart enough to get into med school typically isn't a heritable trait. What's relevant is mostly whether they're hiding predisposition to various heritable diseases, the rest is mostly myth.
That's what you'd think at first, but actually, a sizable part of intelligence is hereditary.
The way you're raised by your parents, your diet, the culture around you, your friends, all that plays, of course, a big part in the way your intelligence develops.
But your potential is hereditary. The very way your brain works at a biological level (synaptic connections and such) is influenced by your genes. So it makes sense to look for a "smart" father, or mother.
But I admit it's a wild gamble, because how genetics work and because kids always have two biological parents, so each one comes with their own heredity.
Sex and gender are different. While you have few different sexes (male, female, intersex and some variations of it) expressed by biological characteristics, there are several ways to express gender, not necessarily linked to the biology and not always lived as a problem.
There are people perfectly happy with a male body, but who feel better when they are considered a woman.
So, it's not always the case that being transgender is a medical problem. It may just be a societal problem because other people deny them their happiness.
^Vivian. While I understand it's a touchy subject for you, could you please stop with the ad-hominem?
If not for this tag shenanigans, I would have said too that it's yuri. Even the position, while a bit unusual, wouldn't automatically point to it being het, or futa. It's just a yuri story of You being depressed and losing her virginity to a random office lady in a love hotel. Fair enough.
But at this point, only the author can tell, because this whole mess is because of HIM. Because he put a futanari tag on tweeter.
It's not even about interpreting the story, it's about a vital piece of information about the character that is lacking.
Regardless of the equipment, what do they identify as.
This doesn't mean the site should be actively hostile towards trans women and their relationship. Calling them 'futanari' is frankly rather offensive, not to mention inaccurate.
While a few posters actually went on the whole "if biologically male, then not a woman" bullshit, either to troll or because they think so, they are clearly not a majority on this site.
People here are usually more accepting than other places, but it's not possible to shut hostile people down completely. Freedom of speech and all that jazz.
As for calling trans people "futanari", I don't think I've seen anyone doing it here?
You isn't clearly defined in this doujin. You (as in you and not You...-_-), and others think she's a woman. Okay. Other think he's a man (which I don't believe myself). And others think they are a third sex (futanari, intersex, or whatever).
I'm inclined to think it's the third answer, because Pito labeled it as "futanari". But then, he approved "transgender". But it could be a language problem (ie, being Korean, he didn't grasp the "subtle" difference).
So I'm very open to any correction on this and if You is a woman (even with a functional penis and Y chromosomes) then it deserves the yuri tag.
It's a reader + forum about manga/doujins/art that the staff finds worthy of note. Lots are about yuri, some are about het, or something in between, or not even about romance or sex and that's perfectly fine.
Owners of the site have the last word about how to tag something and if that something is worthy to be here, or not. Period.
I'd love to live in a world where being transgender, or lesbian, or bisexual, or any color of the preferences palette, is unremarkable, or not worthy of being noted, like in "Always Human" (go read it!), but it isn't the case, unfortunately.
And I'm starting to think that some people here don't even care about this doujin. They just want to kick up some dust about an entirely different issue than this story. I keep on talking about it and others keep on dodging it by twisting everything into transphobia. This is irritating and, frankly, offtopic.
People sticking a transphobic label to anyone who disagree with their take on this story that You is obligatory female, are starting to grate on my nerves.
Throwing the transphobic word around like there's no tomorrow doesn't make it true. I'm starting to feel offended, because the idea that I'd consider a transwoman as anything else than a woman can't be further from my mindset. What counts is how you identify yourself as. If You said "I'm a girl", I'd be all for tagging it yuri, even if she had boobs and a 9 inches dick.
But the You character in this is not identified as anything.
Office lady calls her "girl in the cap" (though I don't even know if "girl" is in the original) when calling from behind. That's the only hint we have. It's very tenuous, but the You character doesn't deny it. It would be enough in any other circumstances.
But then, the whole sex scene, with the missionary position and the "let it all out" comes into play and it goes awry from there, because the lack of reaction from the office lady at this way of making love shows that's something she expected, or isn't surprised by.
I can only conclude that You is "something else" and we don't know what they identify as, but it's common in that world.
Intersex or futa, I don't know (and I don't care).
But I'm not convinced the You here is a woman or identifies as such. So, at this point, if I had to tag it, I'd put futanari and leave out both yuri and transgender.
Because in transgender, there's "trans". Meaning a change from point A to point B. And there's no indication whatsoever that You is changing. Except for losing their virginity.
And if transgender people in Dynasty want to find stories to relate to, I'm sure there's more than enough here already.
