This conversation is pretty much verbatim.
Serendipitously, I find I can understand this more as I was asked an invasive question just the other day.
At least with being trans* not coming up you were saved from questions about your genitalia… >_>
o.o <– your face in the last panel
I find myself really, REALLY hoping that this wasn’t at the Big Gay Out…
Hey, I’m an 18 year old British trans guy. I just wanted to say that I’ve read through about half of your comics (so far!) and they’ve really helped me understand my own discovery of my gender and sexuality, and how to frame it in terms of others’, and society’s norms. And they make me feel a little bit less like I’m the only person in the world who doesn’t fit cisgender expectations. I know that isn’t true, at all, but I feel it a lot.
So thank you. These comics are awesome.
I’ve got the great “Oh you’re gay? Do you have a crush on me?” before. Or the “Wait, but you have a boyfriend. You can’t call yourself gay” and vice versa. In my own perfect world, people wouldn’t feel the need to label, and get confused when there is no set in stone label. Sure, you can use bisexual, but you still get the “well you’re not actually gay.” or “you’re not actually straight.”stuff.
I think it’s great that there are allies, but people like this girl feel more like creepy fans sometimes.
