Timothy vs. Gender

Timothy vs. Gender published on 1 Comment on Timothy vs. Gender

Timothy: Hey, Heinkel? Remember that thing you said we were never going to talk about again?

Heinkel: Yes. And I meant what I said.

Timothy: Well, what if I was the only one talking? And you just listened? Could you do that?

Heinkel: …Make it quick.

Timothy: Okay, well, you were born neither male nor female, right? And so you kind of had to figure out your gender on your own, right? But, see, I was definitely born in a male body, and I’ve always felt awkward but I figured everyone felt like that, but then I got possessed by this female spirit last year and for the first time in my life I felt right, but then I tried thinking of myself as a girl and that still felt awkward, so I’m very very confused and…

Enrico: Guess what? There’s an enemy force moving in on England! And I just got promoted to Archbishop!

To the Popemobile helicopters!

Timothy: …

[nudge]

Heinkel: Come on. We can talk on the plane.

Timothy: Heart-to-heart conversations shouldn’t end in death!!

OK, I’m not really familiar with Utena so correct if I’m wrong here, but if I’m reading this correctly the only time Timothy has been comfortable with his gender identity is when he was possessed by the spirit of a girl who preferred to think of herself as the handsome and heroic prince. Is that… some kind of weird recursive transgender issue or something?

Oh, and Popemobile Helicopter is the best name for a vehicle ever.

Sounds about right!

My hunch is that Timothy does still want to be a prince (he likes cute princess-type girls, after all). He just doesn’t necessarily want to be boyish about it.

Gee, Enrico, don’t sound so eager.
