There must be some godawful war going on in our main character's heart and soul. One side says, " You are going to be Tony, the Manly Man, like it or not ! " . The other side says what Annie is thinking in panel 5. I'm sure that this is the plight of most transgender people, the Hell on Earth of affirming one's correct gender identity, despite the fact that many cis-people, religious or not, will tell you that there is no such thing as gender identity, only birth gender.

Hairs getting longer! She trusts Mitch, but I guess she's more scared?

@Elessir: At a certain point hair hits a critical mass where it gains weight and/or colour and/or lack of colour. It went from spikey and sparse to light and weightless to heavy and slightly greasy.

...one could say I've shaved my head a few times in my life as part of purging.

No matter how much you trust someone, when it comes to issues like sexuality and gender, it is always a roll of the dice. Sure, Mitch probably won't beat her down, but what about saying mean things? Or leaving her? Or worse, telling the school? I thought for sure I knew everyone in my life before coming out, and was shockingly horrified at one of the responses.
