Okay, I'm confused - what is the father and what is the mother?

(This contains spoilers if you haven't read the first chapter)

I just started reading this manga, I'm 3 chapters in, and twice they've 'revealed' what the parents are and twice I totally didn't get it. I'd get it if there was graphic nudity, but they won't show me so I can't figure it out. So the 'father' is really a woman, or is he a transvestite, a man turned woman? He has breasts and no penis, correct?

And the mother is a woman with a penis? Or a man with breasts? Its she a shemale or something? I don't understand it. dead Please explain to me what's going on.

Edit: One more thing, how is this tagged LGBT Parent/s if they're both the opposite sex? Is it because they're in reversed roles or because one is a transvestite?

....A transvestite is not defined as a male that has gender reassignment surgery.

A transvestite simply cross-dresses and may adopt the role of the opposite gender; however, it does not mean that the person actually wants to be the opposite sex.
Here... read this...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transvestite



The acronym LGBT means lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals.

You should also read this wiki article.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transgender


From what I know of the series... both parents are transgendered individuals. You see it within the first few chapters.

I understand now! It all makes sense now. If you don't understand the details then its just the same thing with a different name. (Like polysexual, pansexual, and bisexual.) But when you know the details it all makes sense! eyes

Thank you very much. You've been a great help. biggrin
