Genderswapped characters are rarely a canonical part of a company’s intellectual property, but rather a concoction of fan creativity. However, as Rule 63 made its way around the internet, variations in its wording showed a bias in the adage’s primacy of gender. The male character and his female genderswapped version is shown to be the rule while female to male genderswapping is an often-missing corollary. Such a gendered hegemony is present not only online but also in general fan culture. This chapter interrogates the processes that underpin this and also investigates the nature of cosplay through ethnography.
