Tokyo’s hypnotic youth movement are rejecting ideas of fashion defining sexuality. We’ll learn how and why the movement came about in 2016, and meet the pioneers behind Tokyo’s most boundary pushing scene. We meet the Tokyo youth celebrating genderless fashion. Using make-up, clothes and Instagram filters, these young people are challenging international social norms and drawing on anime's fluid beauty standards.

アルHeather i the dilemma you spoke of in part B in your comment is something i think about all the time. I just feel torn when i look at myself sometimes. I know a lot of ppl probably feel the same way when they look in the mirror. Utter spaghetification between one or the other.

They're not exactly genderLESS just gender non conforming. They still identify as a gender.

Anime is heavily gendered, and absolutely inundated with misogynism and rape culture acceptance. You can definitely argue that Japanese culture is influenced by anime, but the so called "fluidity" found in the medium is purely supeficial, and simply representative of the different beauty standards within the culture. While this may seem "progressive" by western standards, it is simply a movement of aesthetics- not grounded in any sort of ideological message or gender politics.

You have a penis? vagina? That is what determines your gender. You can choose to cross dress or be ambiguous but that does not change your gender.

Soy boys. Thank god this isn't widespread here as it is in any western country. Pretty much these dudes are walking jokes in japan.

"...these young people are challenging international social norms and drawing on anime's fluid beauty standards.", so they're basically traps... nothing new here. And this is what happens when you watch too much animu... it becomes a bad influence. I don't even recognize these ppl anymore... have Japanese ppl lost their identity that they want to be like an animu character that bad now? This is just like another one of those gay fads that'll eventually die and become forgotten over time. It's a wonder why Japan has an identity and hikkimori crisis, add on to the contributing factor of their already declining population this fad will just make relationships with ppl even more awkward...

Valdimar Hrafnsson (15 days ago)
Wtf is wrong with the world it's only gender less because they wear opposite sexes clothes they never said they identify as a fish. To all of you soy boys and butch woman your either a man or a woman you can't change things like that because you want to, it's called mental illness

At first I thought this video would be about more the sexuality part of being "genderless" but I'm happy it's more a fashion thing. Since I really like the androgynous look and want to be more involved in it.

They aren’t genderless. They have either XX or XY chromosomes barring any unfortunate genetic abnormalities. They are clearly mentally ill and need help. You can’t deny science for gender and also complain about people denying science for climate change.

The Iridium Gamer (16 days ago)
Even though i think the entire idea of gender being a "construct" made by society is ludicrous and laughable, i do think being able to express you're self with the clothing of your choice, without any prejudice for choosing a "female" color or a manly type of jeans is something we should aim towards. Because who doesn't like a bit of avant garde once in a while!?

Othsa saa (18 days ago)
what about the sexual aspect? it didnt look like it was covered. Ofc we know the episode is purely about fashion. But are the guys wearing skirts also leaning towards being bi or gay or whatever term is used? Im just gonna assume that this is purely fashion and unrelated to sexual orientation.
