Just reading about RLI...that could put somebody’s life in danger. What if they’re in a space where somebody might try to attack them for being trans? It could expose trans people to violence (physical, verbal, etc.) and scrutiny. I bet the logic behind it is that people have to try it first, but the world is unforgiving to trans people in many ways, especially trans people who don’t pass because they need to have surgery in order to do so. They are making her jump through so many hoops for arbitrary reasons.

Its less about being offended as about being uncomfortable with your own body. Some trans people have gender dysphoria (a sort of dislike of your body due to not identifying with your sex at birth) so badly that even discussing/looking at their own body parts (not exclusive to genitalia) causes extreme psychological distress - whether that comes from self loathing, depression, anxiety, maybe even disgust, etc. can depend on the individual. Some trans people have severe gender dysphoria, and some don’t - it depends on the individual.

@NGOtaku must be the fact that it reminds them of their past? like deadnaming is taboo for them too. Just my guess

wait
so GID get offended by hearing that their genitalia is being altered by a surgery that they go to change their genitalia? unless Im reading it wrong someone pls explain I probably need more context.

dude that's so much gatekeeping, i mean, karyotyping? what? why would that be necessary?
also the RIL thing is so outdated and bs, i mean, you expect ppl to be out and about even without at least a few months on hrt first (all effects are reversible within a 6 months)
thaipeople seem fun tho

I hope the interpretation is that the author still keeps in touch with each family member separately, not that they fell out contact entirely.
It's still very saddening that their family relationships were impacted to that extent.

@dy4y that makes sense in real life but it does not make sense online when no ones having a discussion about it, EVEN less sense when people are coming here to read the series.....like you guys actually believe some transphobic person would come here with a hidden agenda to make fun of the series without making it obvious they where transphobic, I wouldn't even mind the correction if you would've atleast said something about the chapter but to just come here to correct me and thats it kinda triggered me, feels even more bad when I look back at ch 2 comments and see only I and one other person has actually talked about the chapter OTL

@dokidoki The amount of times I've had to correct actual transphobes about pronouns (mine or my friends') has made it a habit. I'd rather be a "grammar nazi" and correct someone instead of ignoring possible transphobia.

@kii-chan look I don't have transphobia or anything at all, I was just making fun of the person for actually spending the wasted time trying to auto correct someone else wether it was a mistake or on purpose rather than actually post something decent about the chapter, its practically like a grammar natzi and no one likes those types of people

@dokidoki please refrain from blatant transphobia. Saying "it" whether as a "joke" or with actual malicious intent dehumanizes the author (as well as all other trans* people) to be on the same level as an object. This is (a) just not nice, but also (b) potentially harmful. The propagation of transphobic rhetoric invites further dehumanizing comments to be made and normalizes the thought that "trans* people are not human," which has historic precedent as being a VERY dangerous mentality to have (Jews, African slaves, the list goes on).

Undergoing gender confirmation surgery is an incredibly personal choice and one that is not easy. Sharing it with the world in such a public way as she did takes incredible strength. Please respect Hirasawa-sensei (and all trans* people) by using the correct pronouns, not the pronouns you think they should have.

As a note to anyone else, this is the only warning. Any further transphobia will be reported on sight. Please just be respectful and consider the consequences of your words before you comment.

@Grischa I had originally uploaded physical scans, so this was just redoing the scans so that they looked nice and making minor updates to the translation in a few spots. I also originally had skipped the extra pages at the time with plans to do a "2.5" release just for them, but with the scan quality issue I just decided to fix all of that in one go.

As for further chapters, I do plan to release more of it, potentially all of it if nobody better picks it up during my downtime. I hyperfixate constantly, so it's difficult for me to guarantee when the next release will be. My goal is one chapter per month at minimum, but unfortunately that is not set in stone. ๐Ÿ˜ž

I hope this means we will get the other chapters soon. Also what was changed in the re-release?
