JynX's Gender[edit]

Thanks to an incident JynX had with static electricity to his private parts a couple days ago, I can say with absolute certainty that he is indeed male. Here's the tweet in question. To give a recap in English, he was going to charge up his Suica train ticket with money and got a static shock at the platform, the target of the shock being "僕のおてぃんてぃん", in which "おてぃんてぃん" is apparently a form of "おちんちん", which, yes, refers to his third leg. Since I had a hard time understanding that series of tweets, I asked a Japanese friend, who confirmed that fact to me.
Thoughts on that? --Popfan (talk) 11:43, 9 October 2015 (UTC)

That was amusing lol. But it does sound crazy to have him confirmed to being male via an electric shock to his private part. In all seriousness though, if this is enough prove that JynX is male, then I say it's valid enough to tag him as such. ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 15:14, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
Hey. Sorry about the hassle earlier, and I understand if you don't really care about my opinion on this. But, I don't think this is a good decision. For one thing, regardless of what JynX tweeted, their web page still has that glaring, explicit "Gender: Private" notice on it, which, in my mind, is explicit confirmation that they don't want people assuming a gender. The only way to overturn that, in my mind, would be if JynX themself were to confirm that they are a man, or at least take the "Gender: Private" sign down.
The one tweet you have presented as evidence of this, in my mind, is extremely flimsy, and requires quite a few flawed assumptions. First, you're assuming that if JynX mentions genitals, they HAVE those genitals. I hardly think I need to mention this, but to be crass, it's possible for someone without balls to say "I got shocked in the balls" as a shorthand. Sorry for the crassness.
The other flawed assumption you made is that the genitals of a person are proof of their gender. If you found out what I had in my pants, and you just assumed what my gender was based on that, as a transgender person I would be incensed. Transgender people do exist in Japan, as we exist everywhere, so I don't think that's a valid assumption for you to make, and it's definitely not enough to overturn the gender neutrality policy of this wiki.
Sorry for all the trouble. That's what I think. -- Ghost 20:52, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
I do apologize that we got off on the wrong foot, and I also want to say sorry for jumping to the conclusion that it was Auralis who did those anonymous edits. I suppose we all could have handled the matter a lot better, but ended up acting in haste, so I welcome the opportunity to talk about this in a civil manner.
In your defense, the events did get me thinking that there is a slim chance JynX might be transgender, which is why I've sent him a private e-mail inquiring about his gender, making sure to point out that an answer is completely optional. As of writing this, I've yet to receive a reply, but I'm doubtful that JynX would divulge any information on that matter, anyway. Either way, I'm going to inform you of the answer when I obtain it, and I'll also make sure to change the pronouns as necessary, which includes reverting back to "ze/hir" if JynX would prefer to keep his gender a secret.
(Not like it's going to stop me from refering to him as a male outside of the official wiki pages, but that's purely a matter of preference.) --Popfan (talk) 22:15, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
I just got word back from JynX. The gist of his message is that he sees no reason to conceal his gender, but still chooses to due to the gender ambiguity of the Len'en cast, so despite clearly having refered to his private parts, he will not make any official declarations. In other words, we're going back to ze/hir, I guess. --Popfan (talk) 11:59, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
Sorry for the inconvenience, but there is a tweet on JynX's twitter with a picture of a thumb. It may shed some light on this topic, I think. P.s. In my and my friend's honest opinions, it seems to be the female's thumb. --Will o' Wisp (talk) 15:48, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
That seems quite plausible for it to be a feminine thumb, but is it really JynX's thumb? The twitter post in question. ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 22:46, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
Um...even if we are to assume it IS JynX's thumb in the picture, I don't think that it's appearance, typically "feminine" or otherwise, should really be taken as an indication of JynX's gender. Well...that's my opinion, anyway. --FantasyInaba (talk) 05:28, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

Now that we have a sample of JynX's voice, his gender is pretty much confirmed. So who wants to do the honors of going through the entire wiki and changing the pronouns? ――Popfan (talk/contribs) 07:35, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Wouldn't the previous decision still apply to how it should be treated on the wiki? If the おてぃんてぃん tweet didn't end in the changing of pronouns, I don't see why a voice should. --Acy (talk) 09:35, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
Because the argument that was brought up then was that he could have been a transwoman. Now that we know both what he sounds like and what's in his pants, him being a guy is that much more likely. ――Popfan (talk/contribs) 11:11, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
I don't think the voice matters at all. Some trans people don't have voices matching their gender, and non-binary people exist and can have any voice. Regardless, JynX's only statement about their gender is that they choose to conceal it, so using he/him pronouns just because of their voice seems, to me, very disrespectful. I believe this page should be changed back to neutral pronouns. -- Bunnu (talk) 08:59, 24 December 2019 (UTC)

Recent Changes on JynX's English[edit]

"JynX has a reputation of using an underscore rather than an ordinary space when writing English words" Seems like it doesn't apply recent themself anymore (e.g. YouTube soundtrack uploads). --MichaelLabs (talk) 03:05, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
