As a trans man, I can confirm that the opposite happened when I transitioned. Men started being rude to me and women were more reserved, so I don't think it's just an attitude thing. Actually, one of the first times I ever successfully passed, I got cursed out because I thought a dude was holding the door for me (in my defense, I had my hands full of heavy boxes).

Truthfully my suspicion is that people are nicer to women because they're perceived as less threatening, and in the case of a lot of men, because guys flat out want attention from them. I mean, how many women have you heard say that a dude held the door for them and then either cussed them out for not being "grateful" or tried make advances on them? It's depressing.
You know, I was expecting something like this, but with Chanel pretending to be "Ryan" and Rain pretending to be Chanel. Though that'd bank on Chanel being okay with pretending to be a boy, haha.
Rended is on hiatus while I prepare the next chapter, but the Kickstarter for volume one is still going! It's got 2 days left, so if you want to get in on some cool rewards, now is the time!

One more page left! Then I'm going to take a hiatus to finish up the script for chapter two and get a good buffer going, but I suspect there will still be occasional updates with art and behind-the-scenes stuff. I'm aiming to launch the next chapter early July, but I'll give you all a definite date later down the line.

Oh, and I've launched a Kickstarter to get Rended printed, so check it out! There are some pretty cool rewards!

And, if you want access to extras like page inks, high-res pages, scripts, and eventually an early look at chapter two, you can become a Patreon patron!

@Oly-RRR: Taki definitely makes good decisions. Always. >.>

Thank you!! It took me SO LONG to successfully learn to build and maintain a buffer. This is the first time I've ever actually managed it long-term and I'm probably more shocked than anyone lmao

@Oly-RRR: I actually just started doing the bold outline first as one solid stroke and then doing the details. Previously I'd draw the whole thing with the smaller lpen then go over the bolded lines with a larger pen. I switched it up to save time (and it saves a LOT of time) but it had the added benefit of looking a lot more uniform, haha. =)

I'd hoped to time the Kickstarter to go live with this update, but the verification process is taking longer than I anticipated. I suspect it will go live within the next 48 hours, so keep an eye out for a post about that!! I've got some pretty cool rewards, if I do say so myself. =)

In other news, this chapter is almost done!! Just two more pages!! Then I'll be taking a haitus for the month of June to make sure I've got a good buffer built up before we launch into chapter two! Are you guys excited?? I sure am!

Hey guys! The chapter is almost over, which means I'm soon going to be launching a Kickstarter to take it to print! Keep your eyes peeled for more info! <3

@Oly-RRR: Aaa thank you! I figured an underground city would grow different kinds of fungus and moss instead of flowers, right?

@Oly-RRR: It was a bad font choice, I've been meaning to change it. It looked better in hi-res.

Why did I ever decide to try to do better backgrounds? I used something like 50 layers on the page, blah!

The backgrounds on this page almost killed me.

Edit: fixed the illegible font

Chapter one is almost over! Only 7 more pages! You know what that means? Print books! They'll be debuting at Anthrocon, and any copies I have left after the convention will be available for sale!

Sorry I missed the update last week! I got a new job! I hadn't started it or anything, I just spent the week in a complete panic.
