Hi! Sorry if this is annoying but could you please link me to some post explaining Pidge being trans? I really like the theory but I'm kind of confused. If she was born a cis girl and she identifies as female doesn't that make her cis?? Is she non binary / a demigirl?? Sorry I've just been looking through your blog but I haven't found any posts to help me understand!!
alright dudelio here’s the deal - we don’t know if pidge was born a cis girl or not. they never specified that and i don’t think they will. literally everything about pidge says that she’s trans coded,, and lemme explain:
1. the scene were she cuts her hair before going to the garrison .. i fucking felt that man. i’m a trans boy (not a girl) so i’m not gonna try and compare my experiences to her but dammit if i didn’t feel some kinship with her
2. when they’re in the space mall and pidge didn’t know which bathroom to go into YOO that’s fucking trans culture right there. if my memory serves me right the ‘girls’ room had the sign colored pink and the ‘boys’ room was colored blue, almost a classic indicator for gender (however arbitrary) but she still couldn’t figure out which one to go into ?? and didn’t keith come out of the bathroom later ????? if keith could figure it out then how come .. pidge couldn’t when she’s one of the smartest characters in the show 🤔🤔🤔
3. she came out. she literally came out as a girl. goddammit.
of course .. it will never be explicitly stated (since voltron is a kids show) but it’s so heavily implied it’s hard to see pidge as anything other than a trans girl. she says 'i’m a girl’ many a times and it’s cannon king
