DON'T THINK - FEEL.
Cartoonist, ""humorist,"" and A Persistently Horrified Man™

I draw sometimes (but I have a dedicated art tumblr for the somewhat better stuff and a DA too.) My main fandoms right now are Transformers, Star Trek, and JJBA, so there's that too.

PS, if you don't want to follow a blog that has a lot of text posts, HAHA TOO BAD.

Here is a photograph of me and my brojunx endura fo' lyfe, fredworldproblems:

Man, you guys liked that Trans Tuesday comic almost as much as videogames. 
A gift for new transfollowers: another FTM-related comic that was barely current even when I drew it

Fat bodies, trans bodies, fat trans bodies….. both exist outside that space cordoned off by society and called ‘beautiful.’ Seems like a case of common cause to me….

Gotta say, Eve’s Apple is probably my top favorite trans-related comic, and the author is awesome too

I know that this is pretty much your generic transgender comic situation, but I’ll be damned if this exact thing did not happen. TEENAGE GIRLS, WHY WERE YOU LOOKING OVER MY STALL IN THE FIRST PLACE
This is the story of how I can’t pee ever again, anywhere

I tabled at the trans booth for the Phoenix pride festival today, mostly uneventful.

There is something so poetically tragic about a man with no penis being surrounded by free condoms

Like A Fine Ass Big Tittied Broad.: Calling myself cisgendered is retarded. Because I don’t feel like...

beatmesa:

Calling myself cisgendered is retarded.

Because I don’t feel like letting transgendered people win that one.

Because it’s retarded.

What happened to straight.

What happened bro?

But oh noooo, transgendered people feel so goddamned victimized that they’ve decided to make their own personal coup d’etat on the world of gender nomenclature, relabel shit so it becomes parallel to them, and expect the world to deal with it.

Fuck that.

Cis is a Latin prefix that is basically the inverse of trans.

So when you want me to say I’m cisgendered, you want me to say that I’m not trans. When I don’t want to be not trans, I want to be my gender, straight. I respect the fact that you are trans, and I can dig it, you do what you want, but when you make moves on behalf of the straight delegation, that’s where you’re fuckin’ up. 

Saying that we don’t know your plight, bitch you don’t know ours. Having to deal with all that bullshit, just for liking the opposite sex. Fuck’s wrong with you for trying to establish all these gender rules.

Fuck a rock and make up a sexuality for it.

Like A Fine Ass Big Tittied Broad.: I don’t know why, but transsexuals make for awful explainers. It’s...

beatmesa:

I don’t know why, but transsexuals make for awful explainers.

It’s just “OMG YOU OFFENDED ME I WANT YOU TO APPOLOGIZE RIGHT NOW.”

“Wait, what did I do?”

“YOU ARE SO IGNORANT. I AM CREYING NOW, I WANT YOU TO DIE”

Then they call a bunch of their friends and you have to chop them down Dynasty Warriors style.

They react off of impulse more than reason.

If I ever meet a transsexual that didn’t have to resort to “trigger warnings” and all types of other manic depressive ass bullshit to put up frequent barriers around their life and then try to pass their already fucked up condition based on the people around them instead of trying to get some serious help from a professional instead of letting their “internet friends” that have no life experience and spend most of their time in the same boat as them, I would actually like them.

Because they are a person, and not some shell that resorts to cries of personal pain and suffering when they don’t get what they want.

We all don’t get what we want, that’s life, and if you don’t like life, death is the only option.

Minus 50 points for transsexuals.

Permanent hate for you.

[[CAREPOST WARNING]]

I don’t mean to come off as some kind of white knight here (for myself? FUCKING PARADOXES) but it seems like you’re describing an attitude held by a lot of Internet People, not the general state of most transpeople. Some of these people are minorities, some aren’t.

This seems like a shitty way of dealing with things, but I suppose not everybody has the privilege of  developing a perfectly rational and constructive coping mechanism. This isn’t to say I don’t think these people shouldn’t try to seek help and/or a more constructive way of dealing, I just don’t quite share your attitude of “permanent hate.” I feel like simply ignoring them and hope they find their own ways (they often aren’t too open to outside suggestions) is a lot simpler, and easier on oneself, than trying to engage them.

What I’m attempting to get at here is that, while this is evidently an attitude that you have come to associate with transsexuals, this behavior neither typifies nor is exclusive to trans-anything individuals. I myself don’t find anything in your list of transsexual traits that I see in myself, nor any of the transpeople that I personally know. Still, if you interpret this as a “resort to cries of personal pain and suffering,” it’s not. I just felt like, on the unlikely chance that zero of the oppositional responses to your post carried a civil tone, I should throw in my two cents while attempting to take on the blandest tone ever.

For the record, yes, I know you said you’re done with/tired of the topic, but I just felt like following up a SBAHJ edit with actual coherent written thought on the subject :y

PS: I was actually typing this up and proofreading it when you posted your handy protip but jumping to conclusions is cool too I guess?

PPS: as for cis-prefix raeg, I don’t see how I’m trying to push that on anyone. It’s just easier to tell my parents, when they ask, that Friend A is cisgendered, than it is to say that “Friend A’s gender identity matches what their physical sex at birth was”

You Know You’re Trans* When: #639 You spend an entire page of an essay explaining to your English professor why you are NOT going to stop using singular “they”.

My response to this was to replace every instance of they/their/etc with zhe/zher/etc. My teacher was thrilled, and it had the added bonus of making it look like I was writing in a bad french accent.

The Fish Metaphor

transitiveproperties:

[A comic panel. A young man in a grey hoodie is ordering a cup of black coffee from a blonde girl at the counter. It is captioned 'I've been looking for a good metaphor for what getting misgendered feels like for me.']

['I've concluded that it feels kind of like this:' the barista smacks the young man across the face with what looks like a large bluefin tuna, while saying with a smile, 'it'll be right out, MA'AM']

[The young man is holding his coffee in one hand and the side of his face in the other, looking perturbed but saying 'thanks'. 'Why a fish? Well, it hurts like hell.']

['And it's frustrating.' The young man is standing at a counter with sugar a pitcher of cream on it, thinking, 'why would you even do that']

['And it's absurd.' The young man is tipping the cream pitcher over his cup of coffee, asking himself 'what about me told her that was necessary anyway']

['And sometimes the stink of it sticks to you all day long.' The young man is walking, looking frustrated, with the cup of coffee to his lips. He is mumbling 'why do people keep hitting me with these motherfucking FISH.']

Sorry for the wait! I’ve been hard at work over on my other Tumblr writing and drawing another comic called White Noise, which I hope y’all will check out when it starts up in August. :D

Also—holy shit, three hundred followers! Thanks everyone!

Bonus:

[The same young man is dressed as Harry Potter, wand in hand. He is being hit from behind by another large fish, while someone is yelling, 'hey, that Harry Potter is a girl!']


no, I’m not "female Captain Kirk" you fuckass

DWTS Audience Are Total Assholes About Chaz Bono

"No way. We have always looked forward to DWTS but this year it will be banned from all televisions in the house. How do I explain Chaz Bono to my 7 year old daughter? Um well she says she’s a he but he looks like a he only he has she parts. Ridiculous. Way to ruin a good family show."

All the quoted comments are great, but I like how this parent wants their child to be fully informed about everyone’s genitals. Knowledge is power, after all
