Webcomic Profile: Rain LGBT


Written by Jocelyn Samara DiDomenick (aka LittleLynn84)

Rain is a slice-of-life/comedy/drama that follows the life of a teenage transgender girl named Rain, as she attempts to go through her senior year in high school identifying only as a woman. Along the way, she makes friends with an eclectic bunch of people of varying orientations and gender identities. See their stories filled with silly humor, teenage angst, occasional adult angst, copious amounts of love triangles, mockery of product names, complex relationships, tons and tons of dialogue, and sometimes a cute, little bunny. How can you go wrong, right?

I hope you all like it!

This story contains roughly PG-13 content.
- Occasionally strong language
- Sexual themes and situations (but no nudity)
- Gay, lesbian, bi and transgender characters (among countless others)
- Lousy or non-existent backgrounds
- Occasionally triggering scenes

@LittleLynn84: I read other Transgender web comics but I always look forward to reading yours the most. I am very happy the hear your doing well to. Being intersex I am still not sure if I will get mine done. I am used to being stuck in between and I am very much like a Gender Fluid person. But my body is both to. It is hard to not be like most others as just one gender. Reading about you getting this as help me a lot. I have gone thru depression badly after surgery to of having my gallbladder removed but I know it is not the same thing. :P

@Luvbster: It's normal to react the way you did. Human instinct is to be afraid of things that we don't understand, are unusual, or just surprising.

For example, I really like owls. But if one flew out of nowhere right into my face, I would jump several feet in the air and probably scream. But that doesn't mean I'm biased against owls.

As someone who is not cisgender, I would say that you responded really well, you're an awesome ally, and you're really over thinking. :)

CIS-World Problems
This may not be the right place to post this, and I apologize if so. I do enjoy the comic and am glad to see it return, but this isn’t about that, I just don’t know where else to say it.

As the title suggests, I am cisgender, and have never experienced confusion or prejudice with my identity/sexuality/gender. Though raised in a conservative household, in the last five or so years I’ve come to consider myself much more liberal and open-minded. I care about LGBTQ issues, I’ve made a few friends in that community, get outraged when I hear of injustices towards them, and even wrote a book with lesbian, asexual, bisexual, and heterosexual-panromantic characters.

And I’ve read and enjoyed this comic for years. I adore Rain, (comic and character) have commented a few times, and I guess that made me believe I had a… I dunno, handle? on the issues.

But for all that, I had never actually met a trans person in the flesh before. Until last week.

A coworker showed up to work in makeup, temporarily perplexing me until she came out to us as trans. She told me personally, obviously a little nervous, and asked if I had questions. Knowing what I already did, and wanting to make it not seem like a big deal, I said no and wished her luck going forward. She seemed pleased, and went to work.

But me? I was FREAKING OUT. Though I was outwardly calm, and always concerned with making those around me comfortable, inside I was more anxious and uncomfortable than I can remember being in a good while.

This lasted for about thirty seconds, before my thoughts turned to just why the HELL I had reacted that way. I was not terribly close to this person. I was not attracted to them, before or after. Their transitioning did not directly affect me in any way, other than having to remember their new name.

Why had this elicited such a visceral reaction from me? Why did I CARE? Why didn’t I feel the same calm acceptance of someone different than me that I always seem to in virtual places such as this?

I beat myself up about it for days. It felt like one of those things, those experiences that reveal your true character, hidden even to yourself. Like being certain you aren’t racist, but when you see a black guy standing by your car, you wonder if he’s about to steal it. Or imagining yourself to be brave, then cowering when you see someone get mugged.

I THOUGHT I was okay with this. I FELT uncomfortable when it was right in my face. I still WANT to be okay with it. Which is the real me? I want to believe that I decide for myself what I am, but when my feelings surprise me, does that mean I failed? That I’m secretly not who I want to be? That I can’t even know until something drags it out?

Is it something that I couldn’t have even realized and dealt with before now? Can I blame it on my upbringing? My inexperience? Can I blame it on anything?

Even here, I’m doing my damnedest to be candid and honest, but I have all the time in the world to think through my words before you see them. If I were caught off-guard, if this was my gut reaction, would it be different? Would it be more true?

I have since made an effort to be as accommodating to my coworker as possible, making a point to do things like greet them with a ‘ma’am’… then immediately worry that I just come off as patronizing. I worry I’ll misgender them. I worry I’ll say something to someone else that outs them. I worry about a lot of things.

The feeling’s not nearly as strong today, and I don’t feel it’s interfered with our working relationship, but I think it’s still there, lurking in the back of my mind. I worry what that says about me.

…Well that was long. Hopefully just getting that out there will help me feel a little better, if nothing else. Sorry to use Rain as the platform for that. I guess I wonder if any of you who read this can relate, from one side or the other. I’d be open to advice on how to handle things too, especially in regards to making a trans person feel accepted without being condescending. Maybe it’s just a fake-it-til-you-make-it kind of thing.

Oh, and glad you're feeling better.

I'm glad to see that you only have a few restrictions to worry about and that you've recovered so well. I was happy for you to finally get the surgery, but I will admit that I've missed you and your art.

I'm sorry you had post-surgery depression to battle with. Depression in general is the pits (I've been fighting that demon lately due to unemployment frustrations).

As for the chapter title page, is it weird that my first thought on the introduction of the endocrinologist was "Ooh! I like her earrings!"?

@S: I think I'm also gender fluid, though I won't be dressing fem till later in my life cuz that would be too complicated since I'm so young. But there are small things I do differently in my life on my fem days.
(Also I always scream like a girl cuz Idk)
P.s. I replied to you because I like to see people like me on the internet, or anywhere in that case.

In my pre-transition days, I would occasionally wear bras or tights under my clothes at work or school to feel at least a little feminine in my everyday life. I don't think anyone ever noticed. In my case though, I was usually wearing bralets, which are very light and don't protrude much (I still wear them sometimes, because they're very comfortable). On top of which, I always wore t-shirts at the time that wrapped very closely around the neck, which meant my shoulders were covered and nobody could see the straps. Often, I'd hoodies also, for extra coverage. The big catch I guess would be making sure you don't wear a bra that you can see through your shirt. Like black bras under white shirts, for example. Actually, even white bras are often visible under white shirts (you want a flesh-tone bra if you want to wear one inconspicuously under white or light-colored shirts).

I don't know if that helps at all, but that's most of what I remember when I used to have to hide my bra-wearing. I'm quite a bit more carefree about this kind of thing now, so I'm afraid I don't have much other input (but I hope this was at least somewhat useful).

If you follow me on DeviantArt, I did a couple swimsuit contests with my characters a very, very long time ago. Looking back, I'm not really proud of those, but they happened. Anyway, Deirdre here was actually in one of them. So if you think you've seen her before, it's possible you might be thinking of that (assuming you've seen it). But she definitely hasn't appeared in Rain before now.
