Yoshi’s Island by Glass Beach

(This is an unfinished page!)

Yoshi’s Island represents the transfem community by detailing a trans girl’s relationship with her mother and society. This is a transfem anthem with lyrics that can hit extremely hard, like “I won’t say she even though I know you want me to, I know that it’s hard but I swear I still love you”. It encapsulates how it feels to be trans in such an amazing and accurate way, while also having a bouncy, energetic theme that fits the vibe weirdly well.

Full song lyrics:

One, two, three, four
One, two, three, four

One, two, three, four
Five, six, seven, eight

I can’t take the pressure

Yeah, everybody thinks that you just need to grow up
I know it’s hard, it’s fucking impossible
Tryna make sense of the things that you feel now
With spiro and estro from Vanuatu
What the hell do you think that’ll do to you?
I won’t say “she” even though I know you want me to
I know that it’s hard but I swear I still love you

I can’t take the pressure
Cry on the bathroom floor when you look in the mirror
Cover your neck or they’ll cut your head off
J, you’re only cute with your heart eyes and legs crossed
Write the things you think when you’re out of your body
Run yourself out of words to say you’re hopelessly lonely
And don’t leave the city and don’t leave the covers too
I know it’s hard but I swear I still love you

I am never gonna understand
I am never gonna understand
I am everything you think about her
Behind her back, the whole truth
Does it hurt to say you love her like a son?
The world could kill her just cause she can’t fit in right

Yeah, it’ll make it so dangerous
When they leave no room to breathe in the space they carved out for us
When the get inside your head, give you white lies and black eyes
When they try to change your shape until your sense of self dies
But you make me feel like I’m out of my body
We ran out of words to say we’re hopelessly lonely
So don’t leave the city, please don’t leave the covers too
Just stay right here babe, let’s live life like lovers do

I am never gonna understand
I am never gonna understand
I am everything you think about her
Behind her back, the whole truth
Does it hurt to say you care about your son?
The world could kill her just cause she can’t fit in right

You take spiro and estro from Vanuatu
You say you won’t think about nothing but loving you
We’re sleeping harbor seals on the seaside of Malibu
Okay, I won’t think about nothing but loving you

Spiro and estro from Vanuatu
You say you won’t think about nothing but loving you
We’re sleeping harbor seals on the seaside of Malibu
Okay, I won’t think about nothing but loving you


Notes:

This is my favorite song of all time!! It hits really hard for me and it’s relatable to me because of my relationships with my mom and grandparents, and WOAH yeah some of these lyrics rock me to my core, like “I won’t say she even though I know you want me to, I know that it’s hard but I swear I still love you”, WOAHHHHHHHH BABY

Sister

Sister is an openly transfem clone trooper who is accepted by her fellow clones and her Jedi generals. She was worried for her safety because of her trans-ness, unsure if she would be considered a “defective” clone, and killed because of it, a fear that many of us trans people know all too well. Due to the man she and all the other clones were cloned from being of Māori descent, Jango Fett played by Temuera Morrison, she is also Māori representation.

Notes:

This is one of my favorite genderqueer characters ever!!!!!! This is such a cool idea to me; one transgender sister among hundreds of thousands of genetically identical brothers, it’s so unique and creative!! Plus, I’ve loved Star Wars since forever and I think I’d go feral if Sister showed up in a show or movie.

Magne Hikiishi

Magne is a minor transfem villain in the show.  It’s very clearly telegraphed throughout the episodes that she is trans, with her friends calling her “Big Sis Magne”, and a scene where her friends correct someone on her pronouns (VERY aggressively, they threaten someone, they are still villains after all). Magne is also representation of a particularly rare kind: Magne is very masc-presenting! While she’s very much transfem, she doesn’t seem to have a problem about having an unshaved face or wearing more masculine clothing. Magne is strong, brave, and confident in herself and where she belongs, and is very positive representation for the trans community!
