My point exactly. If she is a trans woman, then there wouldn't be a point to saying she's a dude, when she obviously wants to be/is called a woman.
But if "she" is really just a cross-dressing guy, he would be referred to as being a male, which the admin confirmed her as being a girl, so it isn't a cross-dressing guy.

Pre-op transexual? Possible, but unlikely
Post-op transexual? More possible (but it would likely require a long unnecessary story. For Kiki's sake, she's a brand new shop keeper and probably not going to be a main NPC)
Born a female? More than likely it.


It could be a weird Sleepaway Camp kinda deal.

That would be intense.



*reads about movie*........ emotion_donotwant NEVER AGAIN!! scream


But that would be an interesting twist....


Imagine watching it.
You should look up the last scene for real.
It's kind of amazing.

He can be whatever you decide she is, since we have little evidence to prove these fancy doodles have genetalia. biggrin biggrin

And quite a lot of evidence to the contrary. (I'm looking at you, Mars. stare I'm wondering HOW Reaper managed to get away with that treasure trail and STILL forgot to include any implication of "gold at the end of the rainbow," so to speak.)

I know OP kind of pointed out that this was more of a "hey, let's raise noise about it, and then MAYBE the devs might acknowledge that 3/4 of GCD thinks she has a d**k!" But, to self-quote myself (with emphasis on the important parts):

Phoenix Goliathane
That said, I personally think a "Telephone"-style acknowledgement would be uproarious. ...But I'm half and half on that - I remember that even when that video came out, there was a huge thing over [the "I told you she didn't have a d**k" line] as it was construed as transphobic.

Which...well, I gave Gaga a pass on it at the time because she was the subject of a lot of gender speculation at the time. (I'm not transgendered, so my opinion counts for less...but that's my opinion.) I think Gaia, even though it share three letters of its name with her, would have a significantly higher barrier to climb.

Basically, I think that it's a huge hornet's nest that Gaia risks kicking. LBGTQ issues are one of the touchiest things, and there have already been several moderately and very high-profile transgender sensitivity issues in the past couple of years, including the one I referenced. Thinking it over again (and I really didn't think it over when I was chanting "TRAP-KUN TRAP-KUN TRAP-KUN" all over GCD earlier), as funny as it would be it would result in inevitable and severely hurt feelings. Doubly so - as Gaia is perceived as being open to LBGTQ people and their issues.

tl;dr - maybe it was for the best that biglanky specified that Murasaki is just flat-chested. I kind of feel like any trap jokes would not go over well.

I actually thought Murasaski was a guy until I saw she was the profile NPC. I blame the artist, because she looks like a girl on profiles.
I'm pretty sure Mura's design is a nod to Ciel in Black Butler when he was forced to cross dress. Mura even has an eye patch.

I would personally love it if it was a he. I love me some traps. emotion_dowant
Either way, if that's seriously supposed to be a girl then the artist who drew her seriously ******** up.

The neck bandaging to hide his Adam's apple is a clear giveaway.
Two things though:
1) We need a cross-dressing NPC about as much as we need an NPC whose hobby it is to build model airplanes. That is, we don't.
2) Whoever said that this NPC identifies as a female...
Being a creepy Otaku =/= Transgendered.

I think she (after taking a second glance) looks a bit like Timmy... Just the hair color and all... huh.

Either way I'd be into the mini plot twist of Murasaki being a "trap". xd

I always figured she was a girl.

A girl with all the splendid curves of a yardstick, but a girl nonetheless.

We get a tarp (purposely spelled wrong) before we get openly lesbian NPCs...

Man, I am so glad I'm not the only person who thought this.
Makes the job of rallying us all together for a common goal so much easier.


Lots of folks are making the comparison between Murasaki and Ciel Phantomhive,
but I'm not familiar enough with the particular series to have made that connection myself.

Instead, my brain went in this direction:

I do not even know how easily recognized that character on the right will be in this neck of the woods.
I think I'll just patiently sit here and wait for someone to recognize him.

AAAAA ANGHEL. <3
I totally thought the same thing. It's not too under the radar here. <3
I'd love to have a transgender/crossdressing npc. Or maybe even an asexual one!

Weren't Singh and Flynn lesbians?
I believe it was at the least a popular pairing in the GCD for a while.

They're a popular pairing, but they're not canon.

It's a girl, it would be ******** stupid for Gaia to change it, after it was confirmed.

Just stick to your fantasies.
