hhhhhhhhhhh i am the KING or QUEEN or SOMETHING INBETWEEN of drawing really masculine or androgynous women and people are aaaalways misgendering my characters
when it comes to balor - the primary victim of this - im kinda at peace w it? shes visually coded as male bc fomor all are and shes based on a male character in mythology, its very easy to miss that shes a girl. i misgender her too, like, all the time. i dont like it bc i dont write heterosexuals but its like... whatever
for other characters it bothers me a little more bc i dont think ive screwed up as massively with making sure they come across as female, but i still understand that i draw a lot of women with short hair, boyish clothes, and no tiddies. go figure.
some other ladies ive had taken for men, also for reference:
idrc when people misgender me - people take me for a male a lot irl, and i turn it into a game to see how long it takes them to realise im not a dude. i think my record is a year?
