kidcrimefighter:

some cherub gender thoughts with shelby… i feel like this has come up before but it seems somewhat more solid to me now? wrt what gender actually means to cherubs and how it might only be a construct applied to them at all because of caliborn and calliope’s encounters with human and troll culture

[9/16/14, 1:45:55 AM] kidcrimefighter: i think gender in cherubs that arent exposed to humans and trolls is probably different
[9/16/14, 1:46:14 AM] shelby: yeah i like that idea too
[9/16/14, 1:47:03 AM] kidcrimefighter: caliborn and calliope and also aranea just kind of fit the idea of male/female binary gender onto cherubs bc cherubs have lots of weird binary shit going on

[9/16/14, 1:51:29 AM] kidcrimefighter: A fascin8ting thing a8out cheru8 reproduction is how the parent’s alignment is passed on to the young. If the male lays the egg, the alignments of the child’s two halves will 8e the same as the parents. If the female lays the egg, the alignments will 8e flipped, and the young male and female halves will 8e endowed with opposite alignments of the parents.
[9/16/14, 1:51:53 AM] shelby: ???? WHAT DETERMINES WHICH HALF IS FEMALE AND MALE
[9/16/14, 1:52:20 AM] kidcrimefighter: i guess it’s considered there has to be one male and one female but like…. yeah
[9/16/14, 1:52:29 AM] kidcrimefighter: it doesnt really have anything to do with human gender lmao
[9/16/14, 1:53:08 AM] shelby: yeah like… its possible there is some kind of personal identity distinction between cherubs and there will always be two in each body
[9/16/14, 1:53:11 AM] kidcrimefighter: like it’s not a stretch to say it’s just a label put on something else by other species, and calliope and caliborn who were essentially raised by other species
[9/16/14, 1:53:17 AM] shelby: yeah
[9/16/14, 1:53:22 AM] shelby: that makes the most sense
[9/16/14, 1:53:33 AM] shelby: that is aranea’s understanding
[9/16/14, 1:54:24 AM] shelby: a cherub raised normally wouldnt have any cultural reason to think of themselves as male or female, i’m sure they’d identify way more strongly with their good/evil alignment
[9/16/14, 1:55:06 AM] kidcrimefighter: it could actually all come from calliope and caliborn identifying themselves with human gender… like aranea is saying all this with the knowledge that lord english and calliope exist so that could influence her reading
[9/16/14, 1:55:15 AM] shelby: ohhhhh yeah!
[9/16/14, 1:55:20 AM] shelby: that makes sense
[9/16/14, 1:55:58 AM] shelby: shes like “oh okay the cherubs i know most about have gender so that must have something to do with their mating or something since thats what it is for humans right”
[9/16/14, 1:56:43 AM] kidcrimefighter: calliope identifying with femininity as a child because it seemed nicer and like, cuter, and then caliborn just identifying as male because he didnt want to share a gender with calliope. and male had EXTRA APPEAL because he saw males considered themselves superior to females and he was like, yeah, that’s my exact shit
[9/16/14, 1:57:28 AM] shelby: yeah caliborn buys straight into masculinity bullshit
[9/16/14, 1:58:19 AM] kidcrimefighter: itd be funny if caliborn decided he was male more or less because masculinity bullshit appealed to him
[9/16/14, 1:58:58 AM] shelby: THEY’RE ALL MEN. BECAUSE I SAY THEY ARE. AND I WANT THEM TO BE.
IF I BELIEVE HARD ENOUGH IN THEM BEING MEN.
THEN THAT FACT BECOMES ABSOLUTELY INDISPUTABLE AS A PERMANENT MAN REALITY.
[9/16/14, 1:59:07 AM] shelby: ^HOW caliborn decided his own gender
[9/16/14, 1:59:12 AM] kidcrimefighter: exactly
[9/16/14, 1:59:30 AM] kidcrimefighter: living the permanent man reality life
[9/16/14, 1:59:36 AM] shelby: khkhjkjhkhsdf
[9/16/14, 2:00:09 AM] shelby: but yeah it makes sense that calliope would read about girls and be like “yeah that me” so caliborn would get into man stuff just to SPITE HER!!!!!!
[9/16/14, 2:02:27 AM] shelby: thats a pretty good reason to decide ur a dude. specifically to oppress people
[9/16/14, 2:02:38 AM] kidcrimefighter: that just seems like a very caliborn thing to do
