One of my favorite parts of Gravity Falls is how the creators never take themselves too seriously. I love how Alex Hirsch and co. aren’t afraid of joking around with the designs of their own character.
Here’s something I’ve wanted to talk about for a while, but have honestly been a little afraid to do so before. Now with much of the fandom rooting for Grenda to become the next Baroness of Austria after last night’s episode (since as we all know, she will marry rich), I decided it was a good time to finally discuss it:
The implication that Grenda may be a trans girl.
Now when I say implication, I don’t just mean I headcanon that Grenda is trans. I mean I feel this is something the show is genuinely trying to imply, but not outright say… since the show unfortunately can’t outright address LGBTQ+ characters and issues without being censored, as proven by the lesbian couple and The Love God’s transgender symbol necklace from the original storyboards of The Love God not appearing in the final episode.
