I was reading something about gender this week, and Ranma popped in and was like: "I wanna identify as THAT!" Enthusiastically.

For the life of me, I can't remember what it was. *facepalm*

ETA: I remembered! Transgender and genderqueer, both. Possibly transsexual as well.

I know I ship Ryouga with Akane, Akari and Ranma in a polyamorous clump (dear God, WHY????), but sometimes Ryouga is such a gross, creepy asshole that I'm like: "Dude, you cannot be around ladies and nonbinary people right now. Go with Mousse, as he is not a total skeev and may beat some goddamn sense into you." Or, you know, just because I will put characters with disabilities together for no reason at all. But ficwise, Mousse/Ryouga does not even exist. (Seriously. Azula/Toph is bigger by several orders of magnitude despite making way less canonical sense--they don't even take a single hot bath together.) So LOOK AT THIS (by ひびきざくろ and worksafe picturewise, although I can't speak for the dialogue):

(Mousse and Ryouga making out).

Also, this picture by ふゆきゆきの makes my heart happy:

(Mousse beating some goddamn sense into Ryouga and Kuno while Ranma gives Akane a love letter, or maybe the other way around; Mousse ships Akane/Ranma for obvious reasons.)

And this one, by がっち:

While searching for some resources on navigational impairments months ago (of which there are not a whole lot) I found this abstract from a paper published in 1997. I have...bolded something relevant.

"Pure topographic disorientation due to right retrosplenial lesion"

N. Takahashi, MD, M. Kawamura, MD, J. Shiota, MD, N. Kasahata, MD and K. Hirayama, MD

Nobuyoshi Takahashi is the (lead) author of several papers on topographical disorientation/topographical agnosia, etc (as late as 2011). And while the chances of two people with the same surname being related are AHAHAHAHAHA you're kidding, right? I WONDER. Because navigational impairments are scientifically obscure/esoteric and Rumiko Takahashi's portrayal of Ryouga's navigational impairment is just that fucking good, y'all. I swear--she understands things even the research ON MY SYNDROME doesn't get. ("Visual-spatial-organizational skills"? Really? You sure you're not painting with too broad a brush, there?)

In my sort-of-defense, autism researcher Simon Baron-Cohen is the cousin of musician Erran Baron-Cohen and actor Sascha Baron-Cohen (I'm too lazy to comment on the quality of Simon Baron-Cohen's autism science, BTW, and anyway, plenty of autistic people have already done it better. But still.)

Because I am the luckiest person EVER, I've been chatting with the fabulous and sparkly [personal profile] esmenet about gender in Rumiko Takahashi's manga Ranma 1/2. It made me remember this godawful analysis of gender in Ranma 1/2 I read a while back (Akira and Ranma 1/2: The Monstrous Adolescent by Susan Jollife Napier, available as part of a Google Books preview for USAians). While arguing that in Ranma 1/2 "boundaries are reinscribed into the conventions of a heterosexual hierarchical society" with a straight face (ahahahaha), she said this. (Out of spite, I fixed a sentence. My correction is in bold and CAPSLOCK):

Ryoga, one of Ranma's competitors transforms into an adorable miniature pig, unhappily at first, but he becomes increasingly philosophical about it as he realizes this allows him to sleep with Akane. It is clear therefore that male is the norm, and it is the female that is one of a variety of attributes (including panda-ness, pig-ness, [DISABILITY],) that signify difference. Furthermore, being female is coded as being inferior to being a pig or a panda.

AHAHAHAHAHA. Also, discussion of Ryoga's canonical creepy stalker behavior )

TL;DR: [personal profile] esmenet's analysis of gender in Ranma 1/2 is WAY BETTER.

*And by "complicated" I don't mean "emasculating." Ryoga is very strong and capable--and Ranma's first serious threat--but he doesn't quite fit the very strict box of Shining Maleness that exists IN HIS OWN HEAD. IOW, Ryoga's the one with strict ideas about masculinity--not the series. He is always telling Ranma to do things "like a man" and, in cases where Ryoga's gotten so lost he couldn't find Ranma for a fight (once in the middle of the fight they were having), he accuses RANMA of "running away" or being a "coward" and gets angry/defensive when Ranma tries to defend themself with the facts. ("You wandered off and got lost! "Don't patronize me!")

Today he sees Kuno carrying a Hello Kitty balloon, a giant Hello Kitty on his back.
 
Perfect.
 
“ ‘Sup, Kuno-senpai?” Ranma clomps his heels together, points his toes.
 
“Saotome, will you please *get off my head*?”
 
“Sure thing.” He does a back-flip, pushing off with all his weight.
 
*”Ow,* you blackguard!” Kuno stands and brushes himself off.  “I don’t have time for your foolishness. And if you got your footprints all over my pigtailed goddess’s presents, I will *gut* you, you hear me?”
 
“Uh-huh. Likes this crap, does she?” He scratches his cheek with a finger; Kuno doesn’t notice. “No accountin’ for taste, I guess.”

Y'ALL! The lovely [personal profile] lizcommotion  sent me a package FULL of Ranma 1/2 goodies, because she is moving AWESOME! So now I have an adorable P-chan pin, a sparkly trading card and, like, FOUR soundtrack CDs! They'll come in handy for the [livejournal.com profile] queer_fest fic, let me tell you. In fact, I've already put the CDs to good use: I listened to them while playing the game I'm supposed to be reviewing, and while writing ridiculous AtLA/Ranma 1/2 crossover drabbles. And here they are!
