Revolutionary Girl Utena Headcanon Survey: Results!!!
Thanks so much to everyone who responded to my survey! There were a few troll responses, but those have been deleted. The results are below. May be spoilers — proceed with caution!
is into women, not sure if bi
Lesbian, but society have influenced her to view men as attractive (princes) as shown by how she forgot Anthy through the change in the “fairy tale”.
Series: Kinsey 2—predominantly heterosexual, but she does seem to have feelings for Anthy. Movie: straight-up Kinsey 3 bisexual.
Bi, but prefers girls because men tend to abuse her
Too hard to say without seeing her after being out of abusive situations for a while.
I dont think it is knowable, to herself least of all.
Bisexual but also, bisexual is Not the same as pansexual. Pansexual is liking all genders. Bisexual is liking same gender + other gender, ie a person can like the same gender + nonbinary, but not male/female, thus making them Not pansexual. They’re two completely different orientations so please don’t erase bisexuality/pansexuality by combining them
Series: demisexual/single-target sexuality on Utena; movie: bisexual/pansexual
Questioning but def into girls
Lesbian. She has never been attracted to that blue haired manipulative sexual harassing senpai of hers.
Not straight but Very Confused
Nanami seems a bit too immature to know her own sexuality yet—see: Nanami’s Egg
She does what she wants
Bisexual, not pansexual.
Straight, but totally willing to make out with a girl for attention
Some flavor of queer – I see her as falling heavily into compulsory heterosexuality without realizing it
She’s gay but it’s gonna take her a few years to figure that out
not sure if straight or bi
Bisexual, not pansexual.
Heavily closeted lesbian
Dr. Jekyll/ Mr. Bi
Bisexual. It’s heavily implied that she was the previous Duelist before Utena. She might have had a relationship with Anthy, which makes Anthy hate her even more after because she chose Akio.
(Neither Tokiko nor Keiko have any other responses.)
Queer, but mostly uses sex for power and not intimacy or gratification
who the fuck cares
Pansexual but abusive/pedophilic. Is attracted to people not for their gender but for the extent of control he can wield over them.
rather than “no preference” can i put “no orientation” whatsoever because he is a bad manipulative man and attracted to revolutionary power alone
Toxic masculinity—sexuality is a weapon that he uses against women and men alike. I don’t think attraction or orientation has anything to do with it. So maybe aromantic and pansexual?
Power that can be gained from their partner. Either over the partner or because of the partner.
He’d describe himself as Heterflexible
Biromantic asexual. He acts sexual throughout the series due to Akio’s manipulation, not of his own desire to attract others sexually.
Bisexual, but for the same gender attraction, he’s very closeted and insecure about it.
Mikage = Gay / Nemuro = Straight
Straight trans man
hyper-repressed trans lesbian
gay trans girl!!
He’s Just A Kid Dude
He’s prepubescent, so it’s hard to say for certain
I Don’t Even Remember This Guy
Likes girls, at least, but is so weird in approaching this that might be trans.
Other responses for the survey in general are under the cut!
