A thought about thoughts;
Thats going on in Toni's mind is how I thought about it. It isn't a matter of denial, that ship already sailed. But the inability to act on it due to lack of knowledge is almost as good as denial. To be able to say, honestly, that you have no idea where to start? Its a safe paralytic feeling that can wrap around and comfort.
Unfortunately, it can also eventually strangle you. Lexi could clearly see that happening.

That said, Julie is right. You can't force someone to see the truth. You can't force them to acknowledge things. They might buck against it, or worse, come to very BAD terms with it.

Also, artists note - 200+ pages and this is the very first full on side profile of any character. So there is that. Like I said, I'm trying new stuff. Its kinda ok.

I remember the first time I was actually excited about the prospect of transition... It was such a surreal and awesome feeling. In addition, final panel, second paragraph, first line, isn't you fault instead of isn't your fault.

@wraithoffire: Fixed the text, thanks as always for pointing it out.

I was never really excited to transition, I was always, ALWAYS scared. I shouldn't have been, but, I was.
It did teach me though that how others see me, and how I see myself can be so drastically different that I don't know what is real. That I *knew* I looked like a fat white guy, but to find out that everyone else saw me as a pretty (relatively) thin girl? Mind blowing.

I hope others can take away from that too - things might not be as bad as you think after all!
