匿名ユーザーの発言:: Another question, this is going to be a very hypothetical situation, so please just answer hypothetically, I know if 99% likely won't happen. If Mana ever said he'd been lying and is in fact a trans woman that wants to be addressed as such and transition, how would you feel about it? Additionally, do you think Mana could be nonbinary or agender, or he's just a cis man that enjoys crossdressing?
I will answer your question backwards.
This is also only from what I know of him through interviews and what he publicly said and kind of “confirmed” as I won’t spread anything “rumor” that I can’t be sure of about him. I believe he’s a cisgender man that only believes gender stereotypes aren’t something to care about. I remember a while ago in Malice Mizer he simply said he liked to wear female clothing/shop for them because there is more variety (which is kind of true). He believes in each of us is a part of both genders. So as far as I am aware, Mana is simply a man that dresses however the fuck he wants cause he doesn’t give a shit. That’s ok with me.
And if Mana would ever turn up publicly about wanting to be addressed as a woman because he would in fact be a transwoman (or coming out as agender/non-binary) I would simply address him/talk about him in pronouns that are appropriate because that’s what you should do if anyone does come out as trans/non-binary.
I wouldn’t mind too, as him announcing a change in gender identity publicly wouldn’t change how he makes music/his personality, which is what I admire from him and like. He’s a wonderful person, and it wouldn’t change because of different pronouns.
But of course as you said this is 100% hypothetical since as of right now, everything points to the fact that Mana is 99.9% certainly a cisgender man.
