The idea that transwomen somehow can’t be “perfect” passing in manga is dumb. Literally nobody could clock me as trans at this point in my transition and that’s not a rare occurrence. Not to mention this woman has literally been out since high school, the biggest years of her transition are probably over and all that’s left is maybe gaining some cup sizes.
I really dislike how meaning of trans got changed to "not identifying with assigned gender."
Yeah uh, gonna go ahead and call that what it is it's transphobic. Transgender very fucking specifically means that you don't identify with the assigned gender at birth. It doesn't matter what the other gender(s) are you are TRANSITIONING into them. And you know what hurts actually trans people more? Bullshit like you're saying.
The picture of Mel snuggled in next to her master, eagerly awaiting her story, on page 2 of Master and an Autumn Day, was so cute and innocent. Mel seemed way younger than twelve. Later in the story when master had Mel on the the bed, I was totally creeped out by it. If Itou Hachi truely means to make Mel and the master a couple, she should stop portraying Mel so child like.
Do you even know the author? She makes tons of amazing lolicon content and it's wonderful.
