A Question

23 December 2010 - 02:35 PM

Before anything else... Yes, I know NiGHTS is genderless, and yes, I know you know it too. However, many people still see her as a boy(or girl) in their heads, and this thread is for the people who see her as a "he".

Okay... I'm pretty sure I'll probably be flamed for this thread, but I cannot take it anymore. I need to understand this:

How the fu*k can you look at a flamboyant jester who uses a purple and pink outfit, have big eyelashes, a slender and non-muscular body, a female voice, and every other feminine archetype known to mankind... And see a boy?!
By the way, I understand that NiGHTS can be considered a VERY gay/feminine guy, but giving the fact that we can see her as either gender(inside our heads), it isn't more logical to see her as, instead of a very feminine guy, just a female already?

So that's it. I just want to understand why/how so many people see it as a guy.
Personaly, I think some people wanted it to be a guy, for whataver reason, and put in their heads that it was a guy(in a type of self mental conditioning) until they saw it like that. Why? Because I cannot understand for the life of me, how anyone could look at that very feminine creature for the first time, and naturally think "It's a boy". I just can't understand it.

So please, tell me what is so friggin masculine about the character. What is there that I'm not seeing?


A Completely Random Thought

Sorry if this is in the wrong section(it probably is) but I don't know where to post it.

There was an anime/manga series that I watched some time ago, named InuYasha. Well, one of these days I heard people talking about it's characters, including one named Kagura, and then, woah! Oh, the similiarites!
For you who doesn't follow the series or never heard of it, Kagura is a demon(youkai) who: Loves freedom, loves flying, hates to be ordered around, is not actualy good or evil, is connected in a biological level with her creator(who she despises) and is trying to run-away/get-free of his control at any cost. Sounds familiar?
Hell I mean, Kagura is almost(becuase they aren't identical in everything) what NiGHTS would be if Wizeman found a way of keeping her under control! ......And if NiGHTS was an actual girl(I see her as a girl anyway), but that's beside the point.

So yeah... Tell me about other fictional characters who make you think about NiGHTS characters, and why. It can be because of their similar personalities, or goals, or believs, or the irony that even being similar to each other in many aspects they still are in a completelly different/opposite situation, or etc.


PS: Yes, I know this thread is pretty random and useless, but I'm bored. Sue me.
