So yeah.. frame 2.. my hand didn't do what I wanted it to. I saw it drawing Dan's head and I was like, no, hand, stop! STOP! And it was like, nope, not on your payroll.

And then we move to like, every other frame, specifically 4, which I think actually turned out REALLY well!

But enough about art. Looks like Julie was quite the ass-kicker back in high school. Then again, cheerleaders tend to be pretty athletic. Though she should know, never go for the jaw unless you can break it. Go for the nose or throat with a straight jab. Quickest way to disable an attacker!

Lets talk about frame 6.

This is a strictly personal thing, so I certainly can't speak on behalf of all trans* people. Just my feelings on things.
When I first began to transition, the constant knowledge that I would be unable to have a child, that I would lose at least some muscle, and that I would be entering into the prey dynamic of the standard predator-prey male-female social relationship.. this all weighed very heavily. There were many times when I felt like I couldn't do it, that I had to turn around because everything was just too much to bear, and it would be easier otherwise.
When Tony is talking about the sting of loss of manhood, it isn't because he is scared to go back. Its because she is scared of going forward.

Of course, I now know full well that I can seize power anywhere I need to, regardless of sex or gender. I am not stopped in doing things or challenged in my authority because of who I am. All I needed was a frame of mind.
Sometimes that fails and I feel powerless. Those times are still hard. But the confidence always comes back. It was absolutely worth it.
