Yeah, I REALLY love it when that happens….
….receiving that sort of conciliatory kindness never feels great.
Better than outright hostility i suppose…
*shivers* the old woman’s discerning glare in panel 3 *shivers again*
That impression of glare might just be caused by her looking more thoroughly / strained for details. Blurry view might just have caught a generally broader figure without style of clothes, hair or makeup. And decreasing auditory functions received a deep vocal pitch while ignoring intonation.
I tend to think positive of people until it doesn’t work anymore at all. Not always the best stance for my interests. ~_~
Well, I’ve caught up to the present from where I landed on these comics. It’s an eye-opener for sure, And I really enjoyed the trip. I have been struggling with my own narrow perspective on transgender people, And I’m disgusted by how disrespectful I have acted in the past. These comics are really fun and they give me a nice view on what it’s like from your shoes, And that has really helped me fix my act. When I saw the comic strip with Justin in it, I saw how rude and dicky he was and that was a good reflection for me. Anyways, I’m really glad I found this comic. You’re art is well-drawn, colorful and expressive, the stories are short and powerful and I hope you continue it for a very long time! Keep up the good work Sarah!
This comic is brilliant! I’m going to keep referring back to it as I begin my transition, little steps on a long journey.
Your material is best when it shows the irony of life. I’m glad for the non-hostile approach. Most people are still uncomfortable with the proper pronouns.
To be honest, amongst my North American friends, the preferred pronouns are not stable. I get frowns when I misjudge.
Recieving comments like this in the past has caused my current self to hate the elderly….. Like a lot…. I also work in phone tech support sooo that might have a bit to do with it too…..
