  • Why is stating that she was born a man, and thus biologically a man, is offensive?

    • I've seen the can of worms many times. They say a lot of things when you open your mouth, they aren't pretty things.

      I dunno. DNA, yes. Feelings come as a factor when it comes to self-identification. No. Yes. Nope. Kinda.

      Yeah, biology. DNA kinda falls into the biology bag so yeah. Self-identification is attached with feelings, so the "realness" doesn't apply here. I mean... you kinda obsess over the entire LGBT thing to the point of things happening in the Megaten wiki. Well... yeah, DNA pretty much dictates you are of a certain sex no matter what, how you indetify as is another issue. Cuz it is, realistically speaking I can't be black even if I decided to identify as one and went through a reverse Michael Jackson surgery cuz my DNA says I'm white, I will look black but my DNA will say otherwise. Say that in a 100 years or more scientists find my post-surgery black skeletical remains, they will do research and will pretty much say that my DNA, or at least the shape of my skull and other bones, that my skeleton was from a white male in his early 20s, DNA is pretty much ultimate authority and says what we are. However, I understand self-identification on trans people is another issue that has nothing to do with DNA but how they perceive themselves.

      This almost was like philosophical quiz... but yeah, thanks for sharing your thoughts.

      DNA

      The problem with DNA is that you can't actually tell someone's "DNA sex" just based on their sex organs at birth, you would have to actually do a DNA test and even that doesn't show actual gene expression. Expression of DNA into sex organs is much much more complicated than just XX vs XY. Expression of DNA into brain structure is even omfg way more complicated than that. Even if we forget gene expression, there are many people who are neither XX or XY DNA-wise. They may outwardly appear to be 'male' or 'female' but may have XXY, XYY, XXXYY, XXXX, or other combinations of more than 2, for example look up Klinefelter Syndrom. In truth, even the thing that some people swear makes human biology "either male or female" actually exists on a complex multidemensional spectrum.

      Regardless, It may be (doubtfully) useful to prominently point out what one may assume based on inference from the game dialog regarding Erica's birth sex on a medical chart or something though in my very honest opinion anyone making claims to understand the situation beyond inference is reading things into it that may or may not be true depending on the observer. Certainly they never discuss Erica's DNA in the game dialog so we cannot actually know if her DNA is XX, XY, or some other combination. Likewise there are many other possibilities regarding Erica's backstory that are not explored by most people discussing this game but that can make the whole conversation irrelevant.

  • Hey again,

    I'm going to be uploading a couple of videos of all the cutscenes from the Rapunzel game, one for normal mode and one for extra so I am just wondering whether it would be better suited on the main Rapunzel page or on the Rapunzel Story Transcript?


    Also just out of curiosity, what did you think of the novel adaptation? It seems everyone I asked about it hasn't read it, at least not entirely so I just figured it will be nice to hear from someone else who has read the whole thing.

    • Maybe the fact that both Stella and Sophie died meant that he was free from the nightmares? Not sure.

      Thanks for adding the summary! Please don't use colloquial phrases like "flat" tho. And I think the wiki is pretty good. If you know how to get the Kindle version (or PDF version) of the Venus Mode artbook, lemme know.
