Why do people in the west love to complicate things? I'm sure the origin of the anime, Japan, the Japanese, never bothered much with Dororo's gender, and I don't even think they would think to bring up the term "transgender" because that has nothing to do with this?
How does Dororo protecting herself = transgender?
Before reading all of this I didn't even know people had an issue with Dororo's gender. I thought people were smart enough to understand words with direct meaning. Everyone is just finding a reason to be mad.
Dororo is a girl. It was mentioned in the anime that her parents raised her like a boy.
Just because we're siding facts and not trying to push that she might be transgender = transphobic pigs?? The stupidity of it all.
