Okay so I got a really fats response with a fairly good angle from different sides I think.
Okay so the two on the bottom make the most sense for what I think cisswap is supposed to be, and headbangerkenny is pretty much on the same stance I am/was/I don’t know anymore. I honestly thought gender bent was just changing this character from a boy to a girl or vice versa. You know, what would the characters look like if they were the opposite sex (that’s how I’ve always seen it and used it). The Trans erasure explanation makes the most sense, but I mean, I’m kindda understanding all sides of this debate.
For the Anon second the bottom:
Honestly, do words that have such a fine distinction (I thought gender and sex were the same thing for a long time) get this much a reaction? It seems like it shouldn’t considering the fictional character aspect of it, but then you apply real world aesthetics. And even then, when has this ever come up in conversation? Like, I have literally never met anyone who was this set into giving themselves a definition for their sex, or gender, or other preferences(?). They just tell me “yeah I like ___, I like to dress like a ___ even though I’m a _____” and so on and so forth. I’ve never met people so concrete on these things? I don’t know maybe I haven’t met then yet, but this is a lot to process with class starting in 10 minutes. I’m sorry I need like an actual solid explanation for everything I’m a dense loser.
Wait, how is genderbent offensive?
Wait but hear me out
- ravenclaws that hate studying and procrastinate every assignment
- hufflepuffs that curse like sailors and that look like they could definitely fuck you up if they wanted to
- slytherin that are really nice and sweet who constantly ask how your days going and if you need help with something
- gryffindor that are scared to kill the spider in the corner of their rooms because who knows if that shit can fly or if it’ll attack you
If you ever tell me that Haru doesn’t care about his friendship with Makoto I will fly out to you, punch you in the throat and shove this photoset right up your ass.
i am so pissed off at people making posts completely invalidating the whole fandom’s opinion on haru’s writing bc they were apparently so much more observant and caught all the magical hidden hints during S2 about haru going pro in the end.
i think what y’all aren’t getting is the fact that none of us are annoyed he’s going pro. we pretty much expected it. it’s the fact that nobody gave haru a second choice, nobody gave him guidance, or an alternative to swimming. he said he wasn’t sure and people either pushed him towards it or left him to “figure it out” himself. the only attempt to give haru more options was from nagisa, who told him he’s a great cook and artist and therefore gave him a way out had he not chosen swimming in the end.
initially i was glad that rin took haru with him. change in scenery, meeting new people, having different experiences broadened his horizons, which were horribly limited. it’s the time span and the way the gears apparently shifted in haru’s head that left me (and i suppose other people in the fandom as well) unsatisfied. this episode was flashback after flashback and very rin-pov.
the idea that the olympic pool was the reason haru decided to swim is dumb, yes. it wasn’t that. it was the fact that rin, as always, brought out haru’s competitive side when everybody else tried to keep it dormant. but it was also that australian swimmer. he seemed happy and relaxed with what he was doing, away from pushy scouts, bright flashing lights and the pressure to live up to everybody’s expectations.
all in all, yes, haru going pro was predictable and not as shocking. but the way it was delivered was indeed rushed and “choppy”.
“Dunno,” Nico admits. “But our best bet is going to Hephaestus first. He runs HephaestusTV, and this whole ordeal may have enough viewers to land its own thirty minute tv special on his station.”
He loses them from there. Nico scans the room, receiving looks of confusion, and a tiny smirk curls against his lips.
“We’re going to Mount Olympus,” Nico rephrases. He stands firmly at his spot. Shadows swirl beneath the soles of his shoes, and immediately all three other demigods stand up straighter, eyebrows darting high in the air.
“Wait a minute—wait, you expect us to just walk in there?” Praetor Jason sputters.
“Yes,” Nico responds smoothly. His conscience starts ratting in his brain, telling him that going to Mount Olympus is a bad idea. “We’ll avoid the throne room. If your Jupiter is anything like mine, then he’ll shoot me down the moment he sees me.”
Praetor Jason’s expression hardens. His eyebrows furrow together, demeanor morphed into a wolfish demure. “I won’t let that happen.”
I know, Nico says quietly in his head. “That’s why I need you.”
Jason nods in response, his lips still set in a straight line, and Nico’s heart skips a beat.
