Er-hem. Pardon me while I enter saleswoman mode. ;P
So, as you may or may not know, I have a RedBubble store for Rain merchandise (primarily with t-shirts in mind, but stickers, mugs, notebooks, etc. are available too). If you didn't know, you can find all that right here -
One of the more popular items is a shirt depicting the main cast, chibified, holding umbrellas in the colors of their relevant pride. Recently, I'd had a few requests for characters to be depicted by themselves (like just Rain with her umbrella and no other characters, for example). Honestly, this was kinda something I'd been meaning to do for a long time anyway; it just kept getting thrown onto the backburner while I tended to other things. Well, since there was interest and I had the time, I finally got to it.
And now I have fifteen solo chibi designs, consisting of each of the the characters on the pride shirt, PLUS a variant for several characters who have more than one "look" in the story, PLUS Heather who finally brings us an intersex pride umbrella. Each one of these works on a shirt or a sticker or whatever your little heart desires. Please check them out if you're interested. ^_^
I suddenly want to be out just so that I can have Ky on my everything.
Those are so cool!!
I want the Channel lolita dress one!
why you do such cuteness on the page q.q i have no mony to buy merch..... and little lynn i have a challenge for you.. make a rain meme set on your time off XD
I love the Ky and Kylie girl and boy mode but there is no neutral mode or of both. I often go thru a between mode of I feel I am not either or I am both. Though I feel I fall to my female mode more now then anything. I love the Rudy and Ruby ones to.
Technically, since Rain is both transgender and either bisexual or a lesbian, shouldn't there be two different umbrellas for her?
I've always wanted to know, what pronouns does Ky(lie) use? It seems that they switch pronouns depending on their current gender, but in a more general sense, what pronouns do they use. Also, would calling Heather an intersex woman be an accurate label?
Heather is an intersex woman. She would definitely prefer female pronouns.
Ky isn't too particular, and really just tends to prefer the pronouns of however they're presenting. If he's in boy mode, male pronouns. If she's in girl mode, female pronouns. There's no problem with gender neutral pronouns in any presentation.
Namewise though, "Ky" is acceptable for either presentation, but "Kylie" should be reserved only for girl mode.
I hope that's not too confusing. ^^;
@LittleLynn84: ummmm why is gavin stareing at ruby..... are you hinting at something owo
@LittleLynn84: I was wondering why me and her seem so much alike. I can come across as rude and bossy though I never think I am being so. I was thinking at first she was Intersex. It just never said she was in the character description. I identify mostly as female. Was she born AMAB or AFAB? I was AMAB though I am sure there was some question at first. We were living in Dunoon Scotland at the time of my birth cause my father was in the US Navy Stationed over there. It be easier to make corrections and hide the truth over there. I still feel my mother is lying to me about it. When ever I bring it up she gets all quiet and only says I only wanted a first born baby boy. Really I think she is very lucky she got so much more. I was more like her and not like my father who was not one to be like. I so wanted to be just like my mother all my life and be a mother some day. And did everything I could to not be like my father. Being Intersex is hard but is nice cause I get to choose which door to go thru as the nurse who took my blood for testing for my endocrinologist told me as I left today. How wonderful is that. :P
Wait, Heather is intersex??
I don't remember where it is revealed; can someone tell me?
A lot more surprise about this than I thought there'd be. I'm wondering if the confusion people are having about Heather is because the word "intersex" is never stated outright in the comic. But she describes the conditions of her birth here: http://rainlgbt.smackjeeves.com/comics/2181513/legitimate/
To simplify, she has CAIS (Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome) which is an intersex condition.
@LittleLynn84: I guess I just did not get it at the time cause it did say it is not her character description. But I have Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome to. My body and mind keeps trying to be female. Though I was raised as a boy. I never felt I was a boy just a tomboy girl all my life. I was told to I was a boy and it only made me want the other all the more for it. Some times I identify with Ky/Kylie to. I have had times I felt I had a girl and boy mode and a in between. Though lately it as been just girl mode mostly. :P
@LittleLynn84: Ooooh riiiight I do remember this page, but the information never stuck with me for some reason.
Intersex without a doubt.
Maybe I forgot because she is not seen as much as the others.
I think ignored Heather being intersex cause she got to close to the truth of my life. It upset me and I just never put it together cause of that. It was to close to a truth of myself I was not willing to see I think. I been feeling messed up like her all my life and I just want to be like everyone else but I never can be just male or female. I have been very reckless at times. I have done stupid things that nearly got me dead or in jail cause of it. I avoid people and I worked on and raced my cars mostly or build my computers and play RPG games a lot. I could not make babies and be a mother like my mom so my cars were like my babies to take care of and the closet thing I could get I like to that males like to do. Thanks to my father who did so I learned form him how to work on cars and race them and it was only thing we had in common though he tried very hard to get me not to. I did it at first to spend time with him more as he avoided me other wise. Then I found I loved working on cars and racing like him. Many times I should of been dead and survived things most would not. I seem to have the Devils Luck and Diehard ability and I heal fast with little scares to show of it. My mother says I have Angels protecting me and some times I think I have Demons as well doing so. I am also incredibly tough and strong for being so female like to. I am 6'2" tall as my father told me you get mean or you get big to be a male. I was not mean so I drink lots of milk. A gallon or two a day and eat lots of protein in trying to me more male when I was young as I was told I should be. Now most people are afraid of me living as a female or male and I really hate that. Now I wish I was shorter. It is very hard to find women's clothing my size that do not cost way to much. So I usually just go for the Butch Tomboy look in clothing. :P
