Q:just to let you know that you should not refer to haruhi's parent as a male because they do in fact identify as female canonically!
ryoji (haruhi’s father) is a transvestite, meaning he likes to dress in clothes that is more commonly worn by females. and when he dresses like that, he refers to himself as “ranka.” he still identifies as male, though, as far as i’m concerned. thanks letting me know, though, i’ll make sure to be a little more careful about these things in the future. :)
I feel the manga is clearer that he started cross-dressing AFTER Kotoko’s death. And that’s a very common thing for anime characters that fit the okama trope.
It’s A Gas POWERED STICK!!!!!!!!!
