    I saw this approximately five minutes after posting: Anna Anthropy has a post at Tiny Cartridge about gender identity in New Leaf: http://tinycartridge.com/post/52624986197/crossing-a-line-gender-identity-in-animal

      I’m glad to see this~. Tumblr is alive with Animal Crossing, but especially amongst all of the gender fluidity. It’s really special to see.

    Yay! I was hoping there would be a post about this. My friend code is 2680-9685-3488. My native fruit is peaches, however, I have sold all of them for the time being. Sorry!

    My native fruit is pears! There are lots of them about.
    I’ve never played one of these before, but it’s cute. And it just gave me a little Happy Birthday message, so it’s my favorite now.
    Off to hit all the rocks~

    Oh, goodness. This is cool to see~!

    We were pre-ordering, but when I learned it’d be available at midnight, I went ahead and got it digitally (and because I wanted to have it and Style Savvy with me at all times). My SO and I already have a couple of awkward/funny stories, and we’re having a blast overall.

    She also makes an interesting point about how your character starts, but given the title is very Japanese, I don’t know how I feel about the characters being called born white versus simply “default” (ie, light skin is regarded better overall; because that’s a big but different can of worms in Asia and even in places like Japan, where skintone implies certain region and culture stuff too at times).

    Interesting points made, but I know Nintendo is one of those weird companies that are incredibly backward and progressive at the same time (and a lot of that gets handled pretty weirdly here too, for sometimes trying to keep it or erase it). I may not know to how to feel about some of the things they do in that context, but as a whole, I love them and hope that they’ll continue to improve on that front.

    As for AC(NL), specifically, I can’t wait to see where else the game goes and everything~. ♥
    (I’ll have to remember to throw my FC on here later.)
