What If Super Mario And Princess Toadstool Swapped Genders?

Why do straight males always get to be the heroes in the Mushroom Kingdom? A Canadian art student decided to depict the Brooklyn plumbing duo and their royal sweethearts as a gender-swapped foursome and we kinda love it; even though Luisa on the left looks like she’s about to burst into tears—camera shy we guess.

Even though it’s just a picture, it’s always good to see a trans character in gaming besides the slutty cop in Street Fighter X Tekken. The only other genderbending Mario Bros character that comes to mind is Birdo, the egg-shooting dino from the 1988 NES-based Super Mario sequel.

      It would certainly raise some questions about Bowser.

      I wouldn’t necessarily call these figures trans.

      Being trans doesn’t make you blind. Those frumpy ladies could never get those posh boys!

      They aren’t gender bending…? What are you talking about? The girls are wearing female clothing and the men are wearing men’s clothing.
