    I don't know... but for some reason I just can't stop thinking about it. What do you think?

    On one hand, Haruhi says "Who cares about that anyway?" when asked about gender. But Also, Haruhi dresses and generally lives as a boy at school.

    Haruhi may also be bigender, switching roles from male to female with ease.

    I waste way too much time putting way too much thought into anime.

    Haruhi explicitly states that she just doesn't care about the way she looks. She had long hair, but cut it because washing bubblegum out would be too much of a pain. She cross dressed mostly because of the debt she owed to the host club, but she didn't really mind. In some of the later episodes, you can actually see her wearing girly clothes of her own volition as well. I think she's just one of those people that just doesn't really care what she's wearing, simple as that. One of my sisters is just like that. I don't think it's anything more than that. :slight_smile:

    HA! Ha ha ha... Ha.... Oh boy, I wouldn't be surprised if she was. In fact, Haruhi's way of thinking is very similar to my own, so that played a pretty big role in determining that I didn't comply with the "normal" gender rules.

    But seriously, I've been thinking the same thing. Her father's a crossdresser... so... yeah.

    I'd say Haruhi is a cis girl, but doesn't care much for looking feminine. Plus, didn't she have to look like a boy for one reason or another, to join the host club or something?

    Mostly unrelated, but I loved Ouran! It's definitely the gayer part of me coming out lol, but I had a great time watching the cute bishounen guys and pink, sparkly everything. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: The show made a great contrast to my usual Gears of War-style entertainment.

    I totally had a fictional character-crush on Kyoya.

    Maybe, but if she hasn't said so, then who are we to assume? :slight_smile:
    Love Ouran! :slight_smile:

    Eh, just speculation about fictional characters. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: Thought about this when I saw the "Frodo and Sam" thread.

    Hey, hey, hey! Just because someone is a drag queen doesn't mean they're uncomfortable with their gender or biological sex!

    Yo having a genderqueer identity doesn't necessarily mean that a person is uncomfortable with their gender identity or biological sex. You implying that Haruhi's dad is cis because he isn't "uncomfortable" with his identity is cissexist. Be careful of that.

    I actually do think Haruhi is genderqueer.

    I've only watched a few episodes, but Haruhi doesn't seem to mind being seen as either gender, and she doesn't protest when people use female pronouns or think of her as a girl. I don't know I guess she could be genderqueer, or just gender nonconforming.
