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...

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

You should also read this wiki article.

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
