Why do reactionary comics always have such awful art
>>
Same reason 99% of comics have such awful art, most artists are awful.
>>
Because the goal is to make a quick buck on inflammatory material, not quality material.
>>
I'm pretty sure Mystique counts as trans. That guy/girl/thing from Doom Patrol. The Skrull from Runaways. I'm sure I'm missing some.
>>
>>79095947
Regular capeshit have awful art and regular indie shit have awful art so i am guessing they just have no money to pay some good artist.

There have been not-quite-trans characters since the 40's (Ultra-Humaite), but the first trans hero was Sir Tristan in Camelot 3000 in the early 1980's. First trans super human would have been Walter "Sasquatch" Langkowski from Alpha Flight who died and was reborn by magic as a woman in a stroryline in the mid 80's.

Their mind, not their brains. Of you are reborn as a woman, your brain is all configured to be like a woman brain.


Trans people have a small part of the brain,configured for the other sex, that keep telling them that they are e the opposite sex. Its a physical issue, a small part of the body that was configured as it was from the other sex. It woudn't be there if it is just transformation, or if the character is reborn.

They do not consciously self-identify as female prior to the transformation, their transformation is not a purposeful result of that identity.
If anything, they accept that they're female because they have female bodies, which is basically the opposite of what it actually means to be transgender.
They reinforce the ideas that it's not possible to change one's gender in real life, and that your gender is designated by your body, which are completely at odds with what it means to be transgender in real life.
The fact that it can't happen in real life really ought to be enough to disqualify comparing these characters to real people whose experiences only overlap in the most remote, abstract sense possible.

Reactionaries tend to be batshit crazy and have no talent except for their crazy, same for extreme radicals. With a few notable exceptions of course.

Also once something exists just to support someone's psychotic ramblings about the government coming for their teeth it's not going to be good in a traditional sense anyway so why bother. Only other nutcases who want to circlejerk will buy it and don't give a shit about the quality.
>>
>>79096846

A shapshifter isn't necessarily transgender, not even necessarily "non-binary" or "genderfluid", because they might be quite confident in their gender identity despite their ability to change sex at will (alternatively, they might be totally confused about it for the same reason).

>>79096007

The Doom Patrol had a genuinely transgender member at one point, Coagula. You'd think DC would dredge her up for some diversity points. Maybe they just don't want to pay her creator.

Sounds like garbage trying to get some controversy buzz. I genuinely want more diverse characters, but how about making something actually interesting about the character in the first fucking place? I'm not even going to Google this shit. Maybe if they described the character in any interesting fashion I'd care.

Wasn't there already a better character of this nature in Demon Knights, they just didn't make it the whole focal point of the character/book, just a solid element of the story?

>>79099078
I played as a gay dwarf in the first Dragon Age game (which was okay, I liked the dwarf noble shit, can't remember if you could have a gay character as a dwarf without mods), but I haven't touched Bioware since the various disasters that were Dragon Age 2/Mass Effect 3/SWOTOR/etc. That almost tokenism thing they have going is obnoxious and the writing is just cliche after cliche.

Especially when it's by people who don't want to swap to begin with.

It's like the exact opposite of what real life transsexuals go through. People who write these characters are just looking for a quick pat on the back.

This is something that affects male (androgen) sex hormones.
Of course it skews men having some physical secondary sexual characteristics of a female.
Because it pretty much exclusively effects men.
A woman is going to be unaffected.

You are wrong on it tho.

Because in universe, tehse characters are NEVER treated as trans, or classified as such.

Its just fans that do this, even on thid thread there is discussion regarding if genderbending a character with magic makes them automatically trans.

Not all genderbend moment on a comic or cartoon need to have something related to trans people. Most writters arent thinking of it when they do this, it is mostly for gag because its funny or hot, or for the sake of playing with concepts.

Not everything needs to be related to identity politics.

It's just a meaningless distinction. Dysphoria is just the feeling of your body not matching up to your brain. Like, if someone identified as female, but wanted a more masculine appearance, that's dysphoria on just a way smaller scale.

Does it go both ways? As in, a guy with a slender/petite frame wishing they were more masculine? Or a butch woman wishing to be more feminine? Or does that kind of thing not count because it's "re-enforcing socitial norms"?
>>
>>79100013

Just wanting to be the opposite gender because "reasons" isn't gender dysphoria. It isn't a condition.

Transsexual refers to someone who has undergone the sex reassignment surgery. Transgender just wears the outward appearance. If it helps, gender is based on social understandings of sex where sex is biological.

What are "reasons"? If someone is willing to take hormones or undergo surgery, clearly they feel strongly enough about it because of the dysphoria they're feeling. You're just not understanding the concept of gender as a spectrum and not a dichotomy.

It is a dichotomy.
Feeling strongly is not the same as the actual condition that is quantifiable and measurable via brain chemicals and hormones and the like.

Actually, I think it was implied that Xavin actually identified as male. That he at first thought he could just become female permanently to be with Karolina, but later found out it wasn't actually that simple. Because of this he took every excuse to take his male form, for example to be intimidating. It got him into a bit of an identity crisis. Even Molly, normally naive about these thing, saw through this and confronted Xavin about it. I think deep down all of the main cast knew this, but were afraid to say it out loud, fearing that this might make them guilty of ending the relationship between Karolina and Xavin. In the end Xavin realised that while he really had come to love Karolina, he couldn't be with her forever as he couldn't be himself, so this made the decision to sacrifice himself and take her place easier, as this way Karolina would remember him fondly, and he could save his love.

>>79102247
It's how you identify. For example, is a muscular guy with a beard more of a man than someone without those traits? No, because your identity isn't tied to your outward traits. Gender exists as a social construct and not a biologic definition. However, aspects of your biology tend to influence your identity one way or the other generally through brain chemistry.
>>
>>79102761
But what makes you identify one way or another? If I were to say "I am a woman", does that actually make me a woman? I mean, do we know that people who identify as a man and a woman feel different in any way? There must be some kind of difference other than just people saying they have a gut feeling about something that isn't even defined? There must be some agreed upon way in which a man and a woman universally differ psychologically, right?

>>79102907
There are certain brain structures that appear more or less depending on whether you identify as a man vs a woman. Truth is that there's a lot of shit we don't understand about the brain, but we do have the evidence that transitioning does help people who are feeling dysphoria.

Its actually dropping as well, as procedures are improving, and treatment is improving.

suicide rate post transition for NEW transitioning is pretty stable.
>>
>>79103663
Unfortunately that's not the case. After transitioning, suicide rates for trans people fall to the same as cis people of the same gender. Also, an overwhelming majority of people who undergo hrt or srs report an increase in their quality of life
