The current practice for tagging characters in between tranditional binary genders on danbooru is *outright confusing*, just take a look at all the tags listed on the otoko-no-ko wiki page. This is not to mention that keep tagging canon trans and non-binary characters in contradiction to their canon identity is downright disrespectful and completely unhelpful for cataloging trans and non-binary characters.
Right now, we have:
• otoko-no-ko being a catch-all tag for all femme-presenting characters assigned male at birth, all tagged as 1boy regardless of their identity.
• Two tags, tomboy and reverse trap for masculine-presenting female characters when clearly one would suffice.
• Transgender tag is banned and renamed to gender transitioning, which is *extremely restrictive* and does not cover canon trans characters in non transition-related scenario, which is the majority of their fanart.
• Canon non-binary and genderfluid characters, as well as a lot of androgynous characters, is swept under the rug
along with animals in 1other
• Newhalf is used to inaccurately tag pre-op transfem characters when the original word in Japanese is an umbrella term for all transfeminine people regardless of their surgery status.
The current confusion seems to be stemming from the japanese terms being umbrella terms when we are operating an english speaking imageboard in English context, whose interpretation of the japanese terms does not align with what the terms originally meant.
To streamline this situation, i think these should work better:
