Q:The latest time I came out to my mother, I was getting fed up with a line of Female-Centric emails she had been sending. I ended up sending her a few links to websites with information about being neutral-gendered and a review I had written (complete with picture of me!) for one of my binders. I think that helped show her that I was actually exploring these options and taking this seriously. Since then, she's been working hard to use the proper pronouns and terms for me.
Proving that you take transitioning/your identity seriously definitely helps. My parents only realized that when they noticed that I was hungrier because I was either skipping lunches/eating a sandwich from home for lunch to save money for top surgery and T.
Q:I saw a thing that The Levamentum Project is starting a Magazine and are taking submissions (for a small fee of course) for it. Idk if this is the right place to ask, but do any of you know if you can submit comics to it? I would love to have a comic strip published in a Trans* only magazine. Thanks
I hope that their magazine is successful, because that’d be really cool! Judging by their post on the magazine, it seems like comics would be accepted because of the “or whatever” bit there.
Q:Could anon possibly have been talking about "transcendental meditation" which while having the prefix "trans" does not actually have much to do with being transgender?
Q:A friend of mine, who is a trans woman, was asking me about some kind of trans* meditation. She's not very internet-savvy, and I'm not sure how to describe what she was asking me about, but apparently there's some sort of meditation for people who are transitioning, and need to let go of their old selves. I tried looking it up, but I couldn't find much information. Does anyone here have any idea what I'm talking about? ~ Mel
I’m not personally familiar with that, but perhaps someone else is? Anyone?
Q:What does "shark week" mean?
Shark week is slang for menstrual cycles. No idea how the term came about, however!
Q:Is there any way that you could put a little thing on the top of your blog so that you can click it and it just shows the comics, and not the asks? Thanks!
Try adding /tagged/comic to the end of the URL! That should filter out the asks while you’re browsing.
Q:One last comment for science anon. This is something I heard from an aspie, but I think it applies here: Let your work speak for you. There are bigots out there. But, especially in business, hiring departments are pragmatic. If you can make them NEED you, if you have knowledge or a skillset that most people lack and that they want, they will very quickly get over their hangups.
There is a lot of truth to this statement, thank you for pointing it out!
Q:"So many layers on my crotch right now / Saying ay-oh / Fuck utero"
“I gotta transition and live my life / saying ay-oh / let’s end this menstrual flow”
Q:Is it wrong that I heard that last caption to the tune of "Dynamite" by Taio Cruz? SO MANY LAYERS ON MY CROTCH RIGHT NOW / SAYING AY-OH / SOMETHING SOME-THING
This is probably the single funniest ask I think this blog has ever gotten.
Q:For firts I wanted to say thank you so so much. Those comments really made my day and make me feel much better. I'm just so afraid that when I apply for a job, and my qualifications would be good enough they won`t take me because I`m trans. There are still so many employers who are intolerant, and no matter woh good you are they won`t take you. - the science anon
I’m so glad they cheered you up in some way! Just do exactly what you want to do in life and do your best and I’m certain you’ll succeed, Science Anon!
