gelato synchronism

Grell = Okama = Molly = ???

A few short forewords:

Firstly: ’molly’ was a common slang term during the Georgian and Victorian eras, for a particular brand of effeminate homosexuals/other dmab queer people. Along with ’okama’, it’s explained more in the body of this post.
Secondly: I’m not looking to strike up a debate with this, I don’t have the time. I’m not trying to prove anyone right or wrong, just stating something that should be considered. grelldoesnothaveacanonicalgender is a good place to go if you want to poke around and find some evidence any which way, though there’s no mention of mollies as of when I write this. I’m sure they’d be happy to answer your questions.
Thirdly: If there are any mistakes or inconsistencies that I have missed, please tell me.


A summary of what’s below the cut:

  • isn’t Grell trans/isn’t Grell gay?
  • what’s an okama?
  • what’s a molly?
  • TLDR; There is no right or wrong answer. ‘He’, 'she’, 'they’, 'ze’; all acceptable pronouns for Grell. Trans, gay, genderqueer; all acceptable headcanons for Grell.
