Before you get all offended, I'd recommend you check out who the prep in this picture is: www.sonichu.com/cwcki/Main_Pag…
No matter what you think, the universe is always able to surprise you.
Chris Chan is perhaps one of the most well known people on the internet and is perhaps the most well documented human being to ever live. One of the key characteristics of Chris Chan is his raving homophobia. While most people who are called homophobes are really just assholes who hate gay people, Chris might have been one of the few people who were legitimately afraid of gayness.
Some of his little crusades on the straight path include:
-Playing with an Optimus Prime toy and looking at a Sailor Moon poster to ensure he keeps his heterosexuality
-Repeatedly condemning gays in his videos
-Suggesting that gay people should be relocated to a sort of internment camp to be rehabilitated
-Making his anti-self in his comic gay
-"curing" homosexuality in his comic by poisoning the world's water supply with an anti-gay vaccine made using his own blood
Now with a track record like that, you can imagine it's surprising when the same person writes on his facebook: "As a Tomgirl, Intersex of Female soul with a Male Body, and a Tranny Cross-Dresser, I am in full support for Human Equal Rights for everyone." He would later state: "No, my Facebook has not been hacked. I do not have a wristband yet, but I intend to get one later. I support the LBT fully; the G.M.s are fortunate to be on this boat."
Chris finally goes full Tumblr Feminist:
"I just sorted it out how to best nutshell the details: I hardly get along with Males at all (not counting being civil); I get along better with Female TOTALLY; I hardly identify myself with the Barbarian and Stereotypical Males at all; I identify BEST with the feminine ways, emotions, Empathy and about Everything Else; I GET DISGUSTED WITH THE DAMN DICKS INCLUDING MY OWN; I WANT TO SHOVE MY FACE INTO THE BIG HOLE BELOW THE URETHRA KNOWN AS THE BEAUTIFUL VAGINA VERY MUCH; I am Feminine on the inside, Male on the outside; my Feminine Soul is most attracted and aroused by women and their Superior Beauty; Male Bodies are horrendous and most offensive to me, talk about going from the middle to HELL's Deep on the Beauty/Ugly thermometer. Female and Male on Female and Female equals Lesbian Identified Man!
No More Questions!!!"
He sounds like he was one caps lock sentence away from telling everyone to check their privilege.
So what does this mean for CWC? Why does he think of himself this way? Why now?
This isn't the first time he made up a sexuality. Back during his homophobic days, he was pressured by trolls to come out of the closet in exchange for something and he attempted to outdo the trolls by saying he was a "gaybian" or a "male lesbian" (meaning he still likes women.)
First thing to consider is that this guy's an idiot and most likely insane. There's quite a few people in the world who don't feel right with their own gender and maybe that's the case with Chris but considering CWC has outright stated several times in the past that he hates all males (except God, Santa, The President, and all the World Leaders), this seems like an extension of that hate and a case of self-loathing. This is the next step in the process where he dresses up like a woman and tries to be more feminine. I doubt he's going to go the full mile and get a sex change.
Part of this might also be a result of him spiraling into insanity. He never saw the most sane man in the world (If one accepts that his comics are a window into how his mind operates, this becomes incredibly evident in later issues). He has a hard time understanding the world around him like why he's not allowed to go into the women's restroom despite 'identifying' as one (To be quite honest, I wouldn't want him in the men's room either). Sometimes his mental insanity gets downright unnerving like depicting the torture and execution of his online enemies, using their real names, and presenting it in a positive light. The point is that I don't trust Chris' perception of reality and certainly not when it comes to something as psychologically shaky as gender identity.
I've suggested elsewhere that Chris may be doing this to fuel his persecution complex as an attempt to get pity points. After all, a lot of these special snowflakes with absurdly phrased gender identities end up being just that. We are in an age where social justice is a hot topic for many people online and it's not impossible that Chris got word of it and decided he wants to get in on the action. He has received more sympathy as of late than he ever has since his house burned down so it's possible he's just digging for more of it.
There's a lot of interesting angles to look at this from and I can't say that any of them are absolutely right or absolutely wrong. If this were a regular guy confused about his sexuality I wouldn't give a damn at all and if this were some Tumblr baby writing this I'd just ignore them and move on.
Chris isn't some ordinary guy and he's certainly no tumblr baby (yet). I'll probably be following these exploits more closely to see where this is all headed.
So is this the dawn of a new era? Has Chris truly ended his homophobic ways (He's still pretty sexist but baby steps)? Will he go full Tumblr and start telling people to check their privilege and learn whatever stupid pronouns he makes up? Will he ever make another Sonichu comic? We can only wait and see.
Just for shits and giggles, Sonichu is dressed up as Anita Sarkeesian and Robee has Tom Preston's hat and glasses on.
