Thinking about Naegiri and a quick headcanon here:
When they get married, Makoto actually enters into Kyouko’s family register. Even though Japan isn’t what it once used to be and most of both of their families are gone, Kyouko still has great pride in the Kirigiri name, so Makoto has no problem leaving his own register for hers instead. ;u;
So he becomes Makoto Kirigiri. Wowsers.

boy & girl: JO.
I’m joining this thing about Chihiro’s gender, because I’m so angry and sad and now I’m crying.
This subject is actuallly really sensitive and personal to me. I’ve been trying to ignore this for so long, but I can’t even go to Chihiro’s tag without getting uncomfortable.
I am male. I have always been male, and still identify as such. I’m 158cm tall and weight 45kg, therefore, I’m a really tiny for a guy in the age of 19. I wear female clothing because I think it looks good on me, and because I just think female clothes are nicer than guy clothes.
I’ve been bullied quite a lot, mostly because of my looks. When I turned 15, I started high school, and I started wearing skirts and dresses. That’s when my hell began. People I don’t know come to me telling me that I can’t identify as male, since I don’t look and act like one. I get told every day that I am not male, like I am, but a woman, and people use female pronouns on me even though I tell them not to. I understand that people I don’t know mistake me for a female, but otherwise it’s just rude, offensive and arrogant.
Do you realise this is the same you are doing to Chihiro? So many of you are forcing your gender choises on him and insisting on him being trans. He never says he’d like to be female. He uses male terms of himself. He clearly states that he is, in fact, male. You call him “your precious princess” and tell others to respect the character, but in fact, you are the ones being disrespectful.
Please, if you really like him so much, let’s just stop this. I beg you. There’s so much more to his character than his gender. Even if he’s not trans, he’s still a really great, important and strong character. Let’s love him for that.
