Oh okay, sorry! I have an alien character who was born on an insect planet where the ratio is 90% female and 10% Male. Females are much more colorful than males too. He is a male, but due to a genetic anomaly he has bright colors and although I hate saying this, he looks like a female. I don't know how to address this, but what should I say about his gender? I'm sorry if this is rude too.
Gender is whatever your character feels, it’s separate from sex. If I understand this right, you have a male character, who by genetic anomaly looks like a female. But the key word here is looks. So they have functioning male parts. If the society is anything like ours, they’d be assigned male. So if your character believes they’re a boy, they’d be a boy. But if they say they’re a girl, they’d be a trans girl (if she wants to use the word trans), but a girl nonetheless. And same thing for nonbinary
Please correct/inform me if I’ve said anything wrong.
Edit: Hey guys! Thanks for the comments. I definitely wasn’t thinking wide enough and completely left out the possibility of being intersex. I apologize for that. Though while what I said above still stands, I agree with commenters that this seems more likely. That is if the society does things similar to how we do.
