Another exciting gender question (Golden Kamuy)

Posted under Tags

This one will be short, I promise. I didn't want to derail the other topic with my own pet issue.

Okay, so Ienaga Kano was originally male, now presents as female, and yes, I know the question of "how do we tag trans characters" is already being discussed in topic #21120. However, in canon, her entire thing is that she changes parts of her body to achieve her ideal form (e.g. in the manga, we see her exchanging her previously deep voice for a higher one). I think it's pretty likely that she's not physically male anymore, and I don't think we need to tag pics like post #4191095 1boy on the grounds that she miiiight still have a dick.

With this in mind, I'd like to go through and change the tags for Ienaga's posts. Does anyone mind?

Normally magical/fantasy/etc genderswaps aren't too complicated, but it looks like there are also illustrations of Kano with a male body (especially post #4235197), so we would have to take that into account.

I guess it makes sense to leave those alone. How about just retagging the non-shirtless ones?

Some posts still look male. post #4235242 for example has a facial structure that reminds me of a male rather than a female. For me it just looks like a male with some lipstick.

Please, please, please don't let's start analyzing facial structure for sex/gender, I beg you. That has some ugly real-world parallel routes we don't need to go down.

...I didn't mean like that. Just saying in some pictures the character still look somewhat male. Personally I wouldn't say it's the case of post #4191095 that you exemplified, so I don't mind changing to 1girl there.
