@oliviana: I am glad I managed to help in some way. I've felt the same way about Venus Envy, and its almost time for my yearly read of that.
Maybe you will be the next one to pass the torch to?

Title
I first found your comic in probably 2013. I don't read regularly but I always check in every few months and reread every one. This is what caused me to realise i was trans all those years ago. I had to put up with an unsupportive family that i couldnt tell. I told several therapists but couldn't do anything about it. I moved out august 2017, and as of last friday I have a prescription for E and Spiro. Depending on how much money i make tomorrow (tips - I work in a restaurant) i should pick up my prescription. Thank you so much for setting the biggest adventure of my life in motion. I know that you dont have a lot of readers but I refer everyone i know who would like it. I appreciate that you kept making these and I just want you to know how important this has been for me :)

@Bandana_girl: A carry letter isn't legal. Its more like.. highly encouraged and any cop who doesn't want a civil action would respect it. For Annie's case, since she passes most of the time, it comes under scrutiny when she is outted as she has been.

Didn't she get something saying she could legally be in the women's locker room?

I don't know what you're talking about; this is the clearest page I've seen in like two or three years of blurry hell. However you "fucked it up," keep doing it.

@Bandana_girl: The dog already existed from very early. Like, when she (back in boy mode) moved in to her mom's house the first time.

Wait, when did Annie get a dog?

Also, don't blame America for your roommate's inability to make KD. We have enough other crap that we actually are responsible for that we can't deal with making sure that everyone can cook the simplest of things in a pot.

KD?
It is a Kraft Dinner of Mac and Cheese of course. Just fooling, I had to look it up in the Urban Dictionary.

Oh, no! Who could that voice be!? That threatening, terrifying, deafening voice, crying out for blood... It’s... It’s a *weekend cliffhanger*! Nooooo!

Heh, Annie’s laying it on a bit thick here! Not that I blame her, given that what she’s really trying to say appears to be “Yes, I saw the note, but also, I know you weren’t in a clear state of mind when you put it there and I’m not going to treat it as real,” but still, at some point the subtext can get so heavy that I have to wonder if they wouldn’t be better-served just talking about it explicitly.

@mj6373: I look at it this way;
I am a tank.
I have dents in me.
I am still a fucken' tank.

If all you hear, over and over, is "you are perfect and dont have dents", then you cant get over the fact that you have dents. Everyone has dents. If you know about them, then you can fix them. You can slap on a chunk of steel to cover the bullet holes in the sides. If you dont know the hole is there, you can't put a chunk of steel over it.

Trans people have a mental or physical problem. By saying we dont means that we literally cannot get medical coverage from healthcare companies. Like my anti-depression medication to fix my lack of seretonin, I also need my hormone replacement to resolve a physical lack of estrogen. If I am not told and verified that I have an issue, then I cannot fix said issue.

Black humour is the acceptance that bad shit happens, and will happen to us, and we can still laugh at it. We can still laugh at depression being shitty, and experience it - and make it more acceptable because of it. There are ways to do it properly. I have been trying to do that. Look at how Annie and Lexi talk to each other about their problems - through joking.
"You cant get any because you have man-meat"
"And you cant get any man-meat because you don't eat normal meat"
Or something like that. Point is, they talk about it, they joke, they know they have problems, but they are stronger because they accept it. Sometimes, you need help - blind acceptance doesn't tend to give help, it shuts a door by saying there is nothing to help.

Like when I told RMitch about myself. I knew I had a problem. I was scared, I told my best friend. He didnt care, but he knew it was a problem. He asked if I wanted to talk. I said no. He asked if we wanted to play games. We did. That acknowledgement of him seeing a problem and knowing it is a problem, matters.
Imagine what could have been resolved ahead of time if the cheer captain told Annie "I see that this is a thing, you have a thing. Is there anything I need to know to help you in this regard". But no, she just didnt say anything, left Annie paranoid and making excuses, and then ambushing the other cheer captain.

I'm just ranting now I guess. Whatever, I'm just a white person who still has male privilege because I started that way and refuse to be a victim. My friends know I have a problem and stated outright they would defend me to the death if some bigot came against me - they wouldn't know to do that if I didn't tell them. Or something. Fuck I'm so tired..

Hrm. I guess this is reasonable, but it’s also really context-dependent. From my perspective growing up, having “pure vile” on the opposing side and only “supportive but with intrusive questions/doubts” on my side didn’t make me “balanced” or “stronger,” it left me completely devoid of anyone I could rely on when I was too young and too broken to figure out how to rely on myself. If this were Annie’s revelation earlier in the year, before Harper’s self-destructive idiocy caused most everyone to turn on Annie and she was beaten nearly to death over the course of multiple days, then sure, I could certainly agree that constant unflinching support can’t be one’s only feedback into their life and that they need some deep questioning to keep them grounded and improving. But when your life is on the line on a day to day basis, the part that’s going to save you is when they’re blocking the punches and convincing you that you absolutely don’t deserve to die, not picking at you over infractions that are comparatively quite minor to either the evil you’re opposing or the good you’re trying to do and spinning that into “well I guess we could entertain the argument that you deserve it.”

That’s my two cents, anyway.
