What is the point of making a trans doll? If you want a girl doll, get a girl doll, of you want a boy doll, get a boy doll. It’s not rocket science. Girl clothes don’t fin on boy dolls because boy dolls don’t have the same shape, it just doesn’t fit or looks stupid. It’s even worse when you do it just because you think it makes an interesting character and you want to follow a trend. Wow offensive to real trans people much. They arent able to choose their sex, but you can choose your doll’s.
Maybe I want my dolls to represent characters I have? Maybe I don’t want to feel alone while I wear clothes that weren’t meant for my body type? Maybe I want to try my hand at modding? Maybe I happen to like how my dolls look as they cross-dress? Maybe I happen to like how girl clothes look, but can’t afford a girl doll at the moment?
And maybe, just maybe, in the end, it really doesn’t matter how I choose to play with my dolls, or NOT play with my dolls, because in the end, it doesn’t really effect you that much.
Those who are young or just beginning to create characters will make mistakes. They will learn from those mistakes, learn what is just fanciful, yet ultimately unnecessary fluff, and learn what actually works for a character. They will learn that research is vital when it comes to character creation for the exact same reasons knowing anatomy is important when it comes to drawing humans - if you know the rules, you know where and when they can be broken and still create something you want to look at without cringing.
And all of the above is a lifelong process that no one ever really masters. Even masters of the craft make mistakes when it comes to properly representing a person or people.
So yeah, don’t be a douchebag and be an offensive jerkwad because you’re too lazy to do a bit of research to see what goes on in a certain trait you decide to give your character (be it race, culture, sexuality, gender, religion, and mental capacity). But also, don’t be afraid to give your character certain traits either. You want a crossdressing doll? Have a crossdressing doll. You want a tribal-inspired doll? Have a tribal-inspired doll.Just have a character, not a stereotype. Or not, you know. This is dolls, and dolls is dolls. How you choose to play doesn’t really matter, in the end.
