Poison from Final Fight: Is it really a crossplay??

Well, here it is.
I'm going to ask the controversial question.

What is Poison?
She or he?
or neither...
or both??



BTW: Not trying to start an argument, just conversation haha...

~Oh, and here are a few pictures of my Poison cosplay ^_^
Not really looking for a serious critique, just thought I'd share.
**Think of it as an illustration**

The discrepancy regarding Poison was addressed in an interview featured in the January 2008 issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly regarding Street Fighter IV. Capcom's Yoshinori Ono when asked in the interview regarding Poison's gender stated "Let's set the record straight: In North America, Poison is officially a post-op transsexual. But in Japan, she simply tucks her business away to look female."

Nabbed off Wikipedia. So it's really up to you. For girls, it's not a traditional crossplay anyway because you don't have to do anything to try and look male.

Ah yes, I knew about this. >_<'

*probably should have stated earlier*

I was just thinking that people could share their personal opinions...or thoughts on the character...or something. ^_~

*thinking now that I might have posted in the wrong place*

Yes, if you're just asking for discussion on the character you'd want to post this somewhere else, like Video Game Chat.

The Crossplay section has frequently had people asking if a genderbending character is truly crossplay or not, so in that sense it wouldn't be out of place. Those get closed up pretty quickly, however.
