Fuck you OP. You’re a piece of shit. Adding an other option would be so easy. YOU CAN FUCKING PET A POKEMON NOW AND CHANGE YOUR HAIR AND CLOTHES AND WE CAN HAVE FUCKING KEY MONSTERS AND WE CAN HAVE INCLUSION!!! Fuck your binarist shit.
Did you really just play into the picture? You did exactly what the picture suggests “tumblr” does.
And? I’m not allowed to be frustrated cause my non-binary trans siblings are constantly ignored like they don’t exist?
You expect every game to give you options to be trans and such? You’re expecting a game to give you every possibility imaginable? Gamefreak finally gave you the ability to change clothes and your hair, one step at a time man. Even then, I don’t really see the problem.
Now hear me out, and I’m not saying that to be witty, what’s the problem with having the choice of being a boy or a girl? Regardless of what you identify with, you nevertheless are born as a gender. So there’s no problem with that. Now I haven’t played the new pokemon games, but can you cross dress like you can in Animal Crossing New leaf? Than that fills everything out.
To continue, I don’t expect a game that is marketed to children to include a “trans” option. I especially don’t expect a Japanese company to introduce that unless it’s a game that is sexual in nature. Then of course, there’s barely any trans people in comparison to people who are okay with their assigned gender. To bitch about everything in a video game I find is meaningless, there is no way of winning. If you don’t include a character creator in an RPG, people complain. If you don’t have every single tiny detail at your finger tips of character creation, tumblr complains. There’s no winning.
Furthermore, just because a game doesn’t offer the option, doesn’t mean people are being ignored. Seriously, I don’t know why you guys expect it in a kid’s game especially.
Let me tell you how dumb you are.
An “other” option complete with gender-neutral pronouns and an androgynous sprite would be easy as fuck.
Cross-dressing is not the same thing as identifying as a gender other than boy are girl. You’re so off the mark that you don’t even make sense.
There’s no reason why other gender identities shouldn’t be available in a children’s game. Reasons why there should be: trans* children exist. We don’t just grow from mushrooms at 16+.
There’s a large trans* population. There have always been trans* people. There will always be trans* people. The only reason why our numbers seem small is because of cisheteronormativity. Eliminate that and we’ll outnumber you for damn sure. Anyway, based on your argument, all characters should be people of color because people of color far outnumber white people.
I don’t think you know how programming works to say that’s easy. Not to say it can’t happen, I’m just saying programming is just a pain in the ass.
To continue, I find the whole gender neutral pronouns to be silly as shit. You’re nevertheless a he or she regardless. That’s my opinion, which of course goes against a lot of Tumblr users. So I’m expecting flak.
I don’t see how I’m off the mark, please tell me why instead of saying so. Because you have your birth gender(or sex, I always forget which one is for what), then you can dress up as whatever. It’s your character, you do what you want with it. You can imagine whatever, there’s few stated facts about your character to have any wiggle room you want really.
There’s tons of reasons. One of the large ones is: Tumblr is one of the few places that has such giant responses to “trans everything in all my games” etc. etc. The real world doesn’t have such requests, and most people do not care because they see no problem, since there’s male and female choices. Sure, trans kids exist, but not much do, and transkids are certainly not common in the public eye.
I never said there wasn’t a trans population. They exist, certainly, hence why I mentioned them.
No, the numbers are small, or at least small in comparison. And good god no, there’s not more trans people than people that idenfity with their gender. That’s just insane to suggest that.
I haven’t mentioned race in my argument, hell I haven’t in factored that in. Again, Pokemon is a kids game and I always thought of the characters to be as basic as possible. They are already established characters, to which you can manipulate some of their characteristics.
If Pokemon had a character creator, I certainly think you should be able to be black if you want to.
Come back when you know what gender and sex is and why you’re so wrong I’m laughing at you.
P.S. Sex is a social designation. There’s no such thing as “biological male and female”. It’s arbitrary.
@thehaddockbanker, back off. seriously. you have no idea what you’re talking about.
"i hadn’t factored that in." gonna go ahead and guess you’re white and have never struggled with your gender identity then.
no one is even suggesting that anything fancy be done. if hair and clothes can be changed, there is not even a slight reason why adding “other” as a gender and making race an option would be difficult.
i know it’s hard to recognize that not everyone fits into the “”“normal”“” guidelines and that boohoo, programmers who should be required to have an ethical background in their studies anyway (i say this as someone who could very well become a technical writer) have to take a step to keep their game from making little kids feel sad/awkward/like shit.
"the real world doesn’t have such requests, and most people do not care because they see no problem, since there’s male and female choices. Sure, trans kids exist, but not much do, and transkids are certainly not common in the public eye."
WHAT REAL WORLD DO YOU LIVE IN WHERE THERE ARE NOT REQUESTS TO MAKE LANGUAGE MORE INCLUSIVE??? like seriously, you must live in a bubble for this to be in any way true, or just not be paying any kind of attention.
point being: back. off. do not attack people with your “opinion.” do not mock people for their identities.
Baked some iPhone cookies to trick cops into pulling me over, then I just take a bite and ask if cookies are against the law.
Lol childish but funny
PSA: Brown/Black people, this prank is not for us.
exactly. they will look at this cookie, claim they thought it was a gun and shoot you, ask questions later
