@Belgarel: @Guest:

She didn't go into specific sexual characteristics, no, but she did vaguely mention it. "When I was born, my parts were considered... ambiguous." Ana might be pouring her heart out, but she doesn't strike me as the type to start talking in detail about her genitals to a new-ish friend.

In fact, intersex is exactly the word she used herself. "I'm intersex. But I guess I was trans too, seeing as I wasn't assigned the gender I should've been."

See the third panel here for both of these quotes. :)

As for Heather and Ana both being intersex, though, I don't think that's strange at all. It's to my understanding that it's more common than people think, as there are a lot of different intersex conditions. It wouldn't be outside the realm of reason for someone else in the cast to be intersex and never even know it. (Mind you, I'm not hinting at anything. Like, if they don't know it, I'm not sure it could really be a development or anything; I'm really just saying that it's hypothetically possible.)
Semis-Stealth?
I won't get on Ana's case for trying to be stealth. She is young enough to actually pull it off. For me I've always followed what I felt I need to do for reducing my dysphoria. If she is like me there are spaces I want to be treated as a woman and not a transwoman, so I don't tell people I am trans. Not that I care if they find out, but I don't mention it. If I am not dating a person, as far as I am concerned it is none of their business. Well except Dr.s and people that need to do a background/credit check. Dead names tend to haunt you.....
@Belgarel: I dunno if I can post links but page #917 "Quack" in chapter 31 is when Ana comes out to Rain. I don't want to call her intersex cause that's not a term she's used herself, but the ambiguity is clearly mentionned... and also, ~two~ intersex people in the same webcomic are not that much of a stretch, are they?
@Leah: Makes a lot of sense actually!
Ambiguous?
@Nilyna: I don't remember Ana being born intersex. I thought she was when she first appeared, but it turns out the intersex character in Rain was actually Heather, of all people! When Ana came out to Rain, she just said: 'I want to be under the radar', there was nothing about her sexual characteristics at birth.
We don't know much about Ana, really. At this point, she is still pretty much 'the January girl'. She has not been hanging with the gang much before this night. It's kind of a surprise she does, in spite of her desire to avoid it. I guess the lesson here is that compassion is stronger than fear. 'Communities of vulnerability', as some philosopher quoted by Oliver Thorn put it.
I'm sure I've seen wordy-er, haha. Anyway, it makes it slightly sad to see that Drew's first question here is about himself, but hopefully something finally clicks for him soon,, I don't think he's malicious, and I've definitely known people like him..... I guess we'll see. It could go either way.

Also, Ana..... I dunno if she'll ever be honest about herself to the group in the future, but maybe this is a first step. For tonight though, I hope she'll be alright,,
I'm so glad Ana got out of the Too Stealth For (Queer) Friends mindset, and now she's even doing a Not Stealth To Support A Friend thing, which is really brave and cool!
Like I said last time, I think Drew's problem is that he just doesn't know what is going on any more. Also, could Ana be any less subtle?
<3 Ana!
Ana is so fantastic! There's so much going on here...

If you find what's important to you, Ky will support you in that.

Also (almost) outing herself for a friend!

Also maybe realizing that she has more in common with her non-cis/non-binary friends than she thought and she doesn't need to be secretive?

Also...
I just hope someone (maybe token-straight-guy Gavin?) specifically points out why Drew is uncomfortable! "It's A-okay if you're not into dating someone because they're not the gender you prefer. But if you want to keep Ky as a friend, then you need to support who they are and what they're doing right now even if it makes them less dateable for you. Can you do that?"
I think her parents had some say. There's a page in one of the Valentine's chapters (I think the second one) where she shoos her father out of her room so she can talk to Gavin, after which he apologizes to her (at a volume she can't hear through the door) in a way that made me think Mom and Dad requested a boy; I suspect Dad lied to her afterwards so that she wouldn't hate him.
@Nilyna: It wouldn't be random though! The doctor would choose the option that would surgically leave the kid looking the most "normal" (that's in quotes on purpose ;) ), and removing is easier than adding. So I don't think they'd assign male unless the external plumbing was already there?

So the mom might've convinced herself "Well my child is really a boy he just had this medical issue and we agreed to the surgery so he wouldn't have problems later on." (And then add a HUGE dose of guilt because the kid has those problems anyway and if she really is a girl then that means you made the wrong choice and all of her suffering is your fault!)

Still a crap move on mom's part -- you should support your kid, admit you screwed up, and do whatever you can to make it better!
Thanks! I learned something today! *questions so many previous interactions with trolls*
@Guest: I know- I wonder if being "post" transition and surrounded by supportive and inclusive friends and family has helped her feel more secure and safe?
Ah yes, a happy prom with no problems
@Nilyna: As a side comment, a little clap for Drew who finally used the right pronouns! Baby steps, Drew, baby steps
So, quick thought, but from what I remember Ana was born with ambiguous gender characteristics and was sort of "randomly" assigned male by the doctor who delivered her. How close-minded must her mother be to reject her trans daughter when any rhetoric of "but you were born to be a boy!!" does not apply?
I can imagine how ana feels😟 when I was young I said stories like her to hint my true self😟😖 bc I was afraid to came out. When I was 18 I told it my family and well I never expected support and dont get one but anyway.
Ana is tough, but I'm bit worried about her
Welp, judging by the facial expressions on the rest of the RainCloud, I'm pretty sure Drew might've been the only one who could've missed what Ana was saying. And now we know why her mother hasn't been around.
Well now Ky is unrealistically mature and composed, but whatever. It would only figure that my 2D crush would only make themselves more desirable.
