Vic's subconscious seems to know what's up, that or he's just.... I don't know, am I reading too much into how he speaks and acts here?

@JaxRhapsody: I believe it has been established previously that Annie is uncomfortable with her equipment and only uses it when absolutely necessary. That's "her problem", and not Flint's. I too have been with a translady who was more comfortable with pre-srs attachments, while I fell more in to the "leave that thing alone" camp.

I really doubt Flint considers her anything but entirely a girl regardless of what she has. Sort of like how he sees Mal.
I do wonder how he sees Mal if Mal shows up all crying and girly and unbinded though. Since he knew Mal before. I'm sure it is either complicated or very simple.

It would be nice of Annie could meet somebody who would be accepting of her... situation. They weren't bothered by her having a penis. Could make her feel a bit less dysphoric and somewhat relieving that who she's with might enjoy her as a whole and actually continues to see her as a woman regardless to the point she can make peace with it untill she gets SRS. I don't speak as some trans expert, just through experience of dating and hooking up with trans people. I've known a few that didn't want anything to do with theirs other than piss with it, yet warmed up to the idea of me servicing it, and in rare instance wantes to top me just out of shear curiosity of what it'd be like.

That's basically patreon, that I can grasp. It seems people use it as incentive to get peoples money under incentive they keep shelling out product. An author makes books to put another world, a different thought out there and only if it sells, it's out there and they get royalties. Personally it's a difference between that and patreon. I do believe there arw different ways to use Patreon based on what one is doing. Youtubers use it as I described up there, but they cater to fans bg offering merch to supplement tbwir Adsense money to make sure people stay interested enough to watch their channel by offering them a reason to watch... ad nauseum, paradox blah. Then there's what Jocilyn is doing, or did; use it to help actually publish Rain initially. Get it to publish books, books sell, slight return of investment to make more as they then generate their own revenue. But this is just theory, I've never considered patreon. Hell; I got an Etsy account I yet to have use for and that's almost similar.

I thought about it, just to keep my beard and moustach how I want it. I hate shaving and my beard doesn't come in real thick and my moustach is like a sheriffs if I leave it alone.
@Sophie, the weird one: That was the intention behind the comic. And not just for other people, but for myself. Sort of like VR for people with war PTSD, I was writing for trans people who never recovered from their internal wars.
I know this post is necrotic as heck, but if anyone else is like me, I needed what this comic did in a lot of places. Many of my emotional wounds never healed right, but instead got infected (and I still tried to ignore them). Your work ripped the scabs off so they could drain and heal properly (with the help of my gender therapist).

In such a very specific type of situation it was a necessary evil for me to relive certain things so they could finally be addressed.
OMG, bill with that cis, heteronormative, vile Fucking garbage way of thinking driven home in the last panel. 🙁😒😡😤😖😫😫😫😫
That self loathing is a feeling I know all too well from my 'Seven Years of Darkness' that included as many suicide attempts and generally self destructive behaviour.
Sometimes I was very much a Pokemon, "It hurt itself in its confusion!'
And she's thinking, 'what the? The right side IS fine and you went for the lef....ooooh, your right and left in relation to me.....ooooooooow!'
That line in the last panel makes me think of when I came out to my Dad (Lutheran pastor). When he hugged me and said, 'well, I guess I have three daughters', I was at once so crushed by how much time I had wasted in denial and then repressing/in the closet, and just a release of so many stressful and negative thoughts I had about myself as being a sick mentally ill abomination.

Then I felt a bit of hope as I realized I could move forward and be ME.
I still was essentially closeted to everyone outside family and friend for another two years until reading a large chunk of this comic the first time around very violently and tearfully rebroke my egg and I started hormones and fighting for my proper name and pronouns to be used (surprisingly my dad did it from the start with only occasional slips and didn't need browbeat.)

Your work has helped me so incredibly much in so many ways, thank you.
Wow, this, this takes me back to a pretty dark place. I had similar feelings after I was sexually assaulted and it too me a long time to completely get over them.

@Lessa: No, I dropped Patreon, not the other way around.

Basically, Patreon has decided that free speech does not matter. Sargon of Akkad, while a real asshole, made his living there. The platform removed him despite him being entirely within their terms of service because he dared to use words that hurt people's feelings.

There was a time in history when being a fag hurt people's feelings. There was a time when being a tranny hurt people's feelings. A whole lot of people crushed a whole lot of free speech because they felt it was the right thing to do.

Who gets to decide who is right? The moral majority? The feminazis? The moderate middle? Free speech is free speech. Patreon decided that only the left is allowed to speak on their platform - I am not left. I am moderate. I cannot, and will not, let them have a cut of any money I might make.

That, and since I havent been able to write for a while now, I cannot justify taking people's money in general. It has been said that an author keeps making money for their book sales for all of time even when they stop writing. To me, Patreon is more like a promise of making more stuff, as opposed to a "stuff was already made".

.......anyways.

You mentioned somewhere that patron dropped you over something you said. Can or will you talk about it either here or elsewhere?

Laser
@Lessa: I did laser first, but there were too many white hairs remaining. I'd take a sunburn over being stabbed repeatedly with an electrified needle, EMLA or not.

Hair Removal
While I did not use an electrologist and rather used laser hair removal for my facial hair, I can relate. Nothing like a bad sunburn on just your face. No to to mention the the laser shots around the upper lip and nostril area.

EMLA
EMLA cream is your best friend. EVER.

I withstood that torture for what seemed to be ages.

Thankfully, I only needed it on my "lower facial area". The "under-the-nose-ular" area was the worst by far. HRT took care of the rest.

Anyone who thinks that we transition for fun has never visited the electrologist and spent an eternity under the needle.

@JaxRhapsody: Oscar was in love with Cindy and she was also pregnant with his child that he was thrilled to have. I'm assuming because of that loss, he turned to alcohol and is drunk.

You might note there is no patreon plug. Thats because I no longer have one.
