There a bunch of really artsy stuff going on. It mostly works.

Fuck mirrors.

(I told you, I keep the comic PG, but what comes out of my brain is not censored. Any more.)

Also, I ran out of room in frame 5 for Andrea's whole comment. It should read "Not thing. Beautiful girl, the most attractive at the entire party, so much that the boys lost control".
Either way, NO, I am NOT 'contributing to rape culture' with that comment, because no, an attractive women does not 'provoke attack' or put herself out there to be assaulted or any of that. Andrea is being supportive. It's just phrasing. So there, it is clarified. Still not happy with it? Well fuck you. No woman provokes rape. No woman deserves it for being attractive.
Whatever.

That link takes you to a petition to get Amazon to categorize transgender fiction to not include erotica. As someone who routinely searches for trans fiction of all media, books have been the most frustrating to try to find.
Please take the one minute out of your life to sign it. Help us make a difference, and help people like us find meaningful fiction about those with GID.

If you do sign, please put -WF somewhere in there as well, we are attempting to judge impact.

With each new image that Annie sees, the mirror becomes more and more cracked. But with the final image in panel 6, the mirror is restored, with no cracks. There must be some symbolism being conveyed with that happening.

I'm not seeing a reinforcement of rape culture but a underlying comment on how we mistakenly gauge beauty by the reactions of men ( which is deemed patriarchal ). It's a double bind because individually, we want to be attractive ( because we want to have love ) but collectively we criticise men for judging us on looks.
I think Andrea is wrong for saying it but in context, it's ok - she means well.
The mirror thing: the camera lies, the mirror lies - it's all about how we perceive ourselves and what we choose to see.
