jesus christ i didnt mean anything accusatory, calm down people. I was just saying that I see alot of yuri in here compared to others.

The entire point of threads is each one has their gimmick.

Instead of saying what you said below, you could have simply asked: "Does anyone here know if any manga or webtoons about transwomen that are straight or bi?"

I wish there was more stuff about transwomen that are straight or bi; romances with men. I know this threads gimmick is really just yuri, but still...

You don't have to 'mean' anything, nor do I think you consciously meant anything, but referring to peoples' sexuality as a 'gimmick' is kind of gross, dude. You could have said

It means don't be a straight cis person barging into this thread to beat down on lgbtq posters for their statements and opinions or to "just ask questions...".

:facepalm: i wasnt referring to sexuality as a gimmick, i was referring to a type of manga, which includes the entire broadband of sexualities! I know there's bl stuff too but its been far eclipsed by girls love, and besides theres burrito's wonderful BL thread.

And ally posing is straight, cis people try to say whats queer or not, im pretty sure

I don't think it got mentioned here: the complete run of Vampiress Lord has now been scanlated.

It looks like it got cut short (3 volumes compared to an originally planned 10) but it sounds like the author had enough warning to wrap things up in a satisfying manner.

I'm still reading A Kiss and a White Lily for Her (I'm on the second last volume) and have a bunch of other stuff in the queue after that, so it might be a while before I get around to it...

Ultimately I was commenting on the lack of het trans stuff that I could find, and qualifying that with my own observations about this thread. That's it. Assuming 'gimmick' is a remark on you (in the broad sense here) is an overreaction, and honestly I have no idea what calling lesbian sexuality a 'gimmick' is supposed to mean, anyways. Could y'all please tell me where your minds are going there?

Recs would be nice, but people have asked in the past and nothing has really come of it, unfortunately :/

The term is loaded and usually has negative connotations. It also implies that what you are describing as a gimmick "isn't normal".

Another new Witch's Servant chapter already. It is delightful from beginning to end. Stupid Sexy Arsenyo

It's old news by now, but i'm still kind of amazed how far this manga has evolved since its beginnings as generic creepy ecchi schlock. Even the demons are turning into interesting characters. How did that even happen?

I also have very ambivalent feelings about the Irish accents.

Just a heads up in case anyone missed it, Witch's Servant had a second update today.

the artist (not writer) of lady snowblood did a straight trans story in the 70s that apparently achieved a lot of mainstream popularity.
it is, of course, untranslated

the word "gimmick" has a perfectly well established meaning that would be insulting to apply to someones sexuality. even if you didn't intend to offend anyone the right call would be to actually apologize instead of acting like it's a mistake on their part that they interpreted your post as it was written instead of reading your mind

as far as i'm aware very few translated het trans manga exist, which would be why no one really has any recommendations

You do know what gimmick means right? And how it's usually applied in a derogatory fashion?

Like for fucks sake is it really so hard to say "I'm sorry I used the wrong word, I didn't mean that" instead of loving doubling down and making a "no, you should be sorry for misinterpreting my words" nothing of an "apology"?

I don't feel like sharing any of the het trans stories I know because of how you're reacting to all this.

Using the word 'gimmick' may not have been the best idea. Also, the follow-up of "Sheesh, you goons are being overly sensitive" is kind of less-than-stellar?

Like yeah, there's a dedicated BL Thread (which you should check out, because Everything Burrito is like an artisan of rad recommendations), but that doesn't mean that stuff posted here won't show up there and vice versa. Also this and the Shoujo, Josei and Romance thread also tend to have a lot of the same regulars.
