We're not gonna pull anyone's gay/trans card or demand people unclear about their identities have worked it out enough to say 'i'm x' to be allowed to post here.

also no one has to do the 'sorry if im ___ trash' self putdown thing in here (not calling you out just in general for anyone who might come in here) all the people in here i know personally in here are chill i think and id encourage everyone to be nice to themselves

I mean we're like a page past the no straights allowed decision so even if that kind of doubt is unnecessary it's not surprising?

i was in catjail when it happened n my brain is too glazed over rn to tease out the subtle context but i think the spirit of 'no allyposting' might just be 'dont be weird and performative about interacting with gay/trans people instead of just talking like your normally do on the internet forum' not 'straight people dont post here.'

i would clarify 'dont be weird and performative' with you really, genuinely don't need to self deprecate a certain amount to not get yelled at we're all normal and don't bite'

i made my first posts here literally today tho and prob need to go play etrian odyssey for the rest of the night

Hi, I'm bi and I love watching anime and smoking weed. Prunus was a pretty great read but honestly I don't read a ton of lgbtq stuff, I really should branch out. Is there much out there featuring decent gay characters that isn't necessarily focused on romance? I kinda prefer action or horror stories.

this series is gut-wrenching and I think the worst thing to read if you don't want something tragic or sad

The ending is positive but everything up until that point is nonstop suffering.

i think people would do better to point out specifically what they dislike about something instead of using the word for the entire medium as a vague pejorative

to clarify not cuz i even care about the pejorative part that much but just because no one knows what anyone else means by it

I enjoy a lot of stuff that isn't explicitly "we are scissoring off screen 24/7" but is still obviously lesbian coded. I hate that term, is there a better one?

just say lesbian but be prepared for progressive straight guys to launch into passionate explanations of the many multi-faceted meanings of "daisuki" when you do

to the above I don't think you have to overthink whether Lin is really a positive represenation of x if he makes you happy.

you're right, regardless of what the author intended Lin is cool and good

I mean from watching it (really need to finish that last episode sometime) I don't think they could have intended anything bad. Like I'm sort of confused what there is to think about in regards to him being 'positive' rep or not. At any rate him and the show made me very happy.

Anyway, let's make pitching and catching jokes

And for all of KnK's faults I know at least three people who realized they were nonbinary because of it, so. Yet another example of 'its more about an earnest attempt to engage than checking off boxes' because Kara no Kyoukai literally has a random guy go insane and dress up as Ryougi and go on a murder spree, it seems to literally think of Ryougi's male and female halves as two separate identities, and it's REALLY hung up on the idea that wearing a coat is the most hosed up thing someone assigned female at birth could possibly do and must mean Ryougi is impossible to understand. And people still get a lot out of it.

All of this is why it's the best nb rep in anime though.

Although imo I always thought their kimono (not sure if this or a yukata, the blue one specifically) was a really masculine look whereas a short red leather jacket like that is much more feminine.

I like Lin to be the catcher for self insert reasons

I think authorial intent is pretty impossible to divine in these situations. Like something like Otome Danshi I can say feels like a very genuine representation of someone living while gender nonconforming (anyone else always want to abbreviate this to gender noncon before thinking for 5 seconds) but Hakata just isn't about day to day details that are relatable in that way. However, it treats all its gay n etc chars including Lin very kindly, I would say.

Like most of my favorite gay stories are about evil and horrible people so I don't think this is the litmus test for "good representation" (or well, most of what I like and connect to would be considered "bad" rep by bad people) but Hakata's a very "warm" narrative that gay people form community and all end up in better places over the course of, iirc.
