Webcomic Profile: Rain LGBT


Written by Jocelyn Samara DiDomenick (aka LittleLynn84)

"Rain" is a comedy/drama that follows the daily life of teenage transsexual (who is coincidentally named Rain) attempting to go through her senior year being only identified as a woman. I'd like for it to be very funny and entertaining, but the story will also touch on many rather heavy subjects including acceptance from family and piers, blind hatred and many of the other difficulties faced by members of the LGBT community.

This comic contains:
- Occasionally strong language
- Sexual themes and situations (but no nudity)
- Gay, lesbian, bi and transgendered (and straight) characters
- Lousy or non-existent backgrounds

I want to say that I think both Aiken and Kellen are making progress with this conflict. I also want to remind that Aiken has had a fair while longer to adjust to the situation; and that while Kellen's behavior so far has been every bit of disrespectful and rude, she hasn't shown the same -degree- of rejection that Aiken did initially. They both certainly have a long way to go, but I think Kellen might EVENTUALLY warm up to her little sis' more so than Aiken will.

I want to say that as unpleasant as the situations the characters are often in, I think you've done an excellent job of portraying them. Given the length of this work in time or in number of pages, having not lost the focus to do so is impressive. I absolutely look forward to seeing where you continue to take this.

I hope he saw genderfluid along the way. To be transgender with no hope of transition ever because you are constantly bouncing between every conceivable gender identity.

I've got to say, I think this is very positive. Yes, it isn't ideal that Aiken is currently seeing it as a mental illness, but I think the twins NEED that phase. I think, ultimately, more of their rejection is due to that feeling of "losing" their baby brother Ryan. If they drop their prejudices, they will quickly start seeing that Rain is essentially an happier, more confident Ryan and that her femininity is simply a part of herself she had to repress rather than a new thing.

In short, this step of "rejecting Rain is more likely to lead to permanently losing our younger sibling than accepting her" is an important one. It's also a fabulous bit of character development in which we get an inkling of how important family is, at least to Aiken.

hey jocelyn diction error
effeminate is a term only applied to men, the ideal word you want for that sentence is feminine

stepping stones
In regard to Aiken's attitude: it's better. It's not really the best, or even good, but I would consider it a solid neutral. This is a phase of acceptance a lot of people go through on their way to being, you know, actually respectful of trans people's gender. My own parents went through this phase, and while I was glad that they weren't trying to fix me, I was also pretty depressed that they saw me a mentally ill individual that needed to be fixed. I may be putting my own experiance into this, but I think that over time Aiken will shift to seeing Rain as just a girl as opposed to the weird justification thing he has going right now. Kellen though? That girl has major insecurity issues, and needs to get help/deal with it in some kind of constructive way before she can fix her relationship with Rain. She wants everyone to be the way she wants them to be, and when they aren't she isn't happy. That is about as far away from a helpful attitude as possible, especially for someone in transition.

Did this hit me in the feels? It kind of hit me in the feels.

@LittleLynn84: To be honest, for me, this is the perfect page for Christmas. It deals with issues that have been prevalent in the recent weeks for me, and I've always had a special love for the heavy, serious stuff. While I do love comedy, the meaningful and philosophical messages are what I truly love.

I've been waiting for something like this to be mentioned. I've considered for a long time, and came close to attempting a few times. Still trying to get rid of the urges. Too bad this had to be on christmas :/ but still, very good page.

If Aiken managed to get along with it I'm hoping Kellen will too.

Now show us some RainxEmily ships so we can sail on it.

future idea (based on rl events)
Hi my name is Ruby (not influenced by Rudy's female alter-ego but I did laugh when I saw the connection... Anyway Ruby is my name (though some people still don't understand and call me Rhys -_-)

I just thought I'd throw in something based on what happened after I came out making my family uncomfortable... my brother was still warming up to the fact when we were having a fight, so I slapped him and he said "you hit like a girl!... Ruby." since then he has really started understanding more (even calling me Ruby in private conversations)

So yeah I just thought that would be a cute idea for the story-line ^^
