same goes for girls cosplaying boys

don’t just assume that the cosplayer’s gender is the same as the character. when i cosplay female characters, my goal is obviously to look female even though i am male. when you’re talking to a cosplayer at a con, or commenting on/tagging cosplay posts, or even with people out of cosplay, don’t just guess someone’s gender. it’s not hard to use neutral pronouns for someone who’s gender you’re unsure of, even if they look like the girliest girl you can imagine.
