You know Annie... you should have never gotten yourself into that situation to begin with.

@GreenKrog: I gladly would. I mean.. it is obvious that Annie struggles with dysphoria. And I know that Vic has been extremely cool, and he even sees the women that Annie is. And Annie as smart as she is should have realized that Vic has struggled a few times recently with the fact that he is only hetero. I just want to couch what I am going to say with me coming from this premise.


I hate what I see when I look down and I would not ever show that to anyone else. Especially when there is a chance (even if it were only like 1.0% - but in Vic's case and him strongly likely being hetero) that if I did that I would get the exact reaction that I so feared -- or maybe even shared. I mean I am repulsed by myself.. holy cow if I let someone else do the same to me. Yeah, I have problems and I get that.. but sometimes the best way to avoid a bad thing is to never get yourself into that situation to begin with.

I feel absolutely awful for Annie. :(


Also, I am not very good with words sometimes... but kudos to this comic. I think you hit one big target that many TG people struggle with in one way or another and this is not a fun thing at all... so seeing this comic caused a reaction from me -- and I resonated with it.

@Cynn: So the question then is, when you say that Annie should not have gotten into this situation, do you mean that she should not have thought herself to be allowed a normal, hetero, sexual relationship? That she should have waited until her surgery (should that ever happen)?

@GreenKrog: Yeah, that is it. :( And yeah, I am jaded.. sorry.

But the thing is that Annie is in a hetero relationship so she doesn't have to wait... and it really bites that there is one part where her hetero relationship and her body are incongruent with being hetero. And yeah that sucks too.. but sometimes the physical crap gets in the way -- and that is reality.

I know, from your previous posts, that you have this uploaded months in advance, but it is eerie how many times a posted comic directly covers something my wife and I had been talking about only a day or two before in our own lives. For instance we were having a conversation about this exact possible scenario with our own SO yesterday afternoon.

Not sure if I'd be brave enough to try what Annie did.

I too hate my... worse part. If I were to find myself with the woman of my dreams, and she was lesbian, not bi, but still accepted me as a woman, despite the...

I don't think I'd ever be able to get over my fear of rejection by undressing with her until after the corrective surgery.

But then, Vic seemed to think he was ready for it, and clearly he overestimated himself in this case. I think he still loves her and wishes to be with her, but the visual shattered Vic's rose-tinted glasses.

Not sure if they are repairable, but time and your writing will tell. :)

BTW, I normally post as Lex-Kat, but I finally registered.... and some thief stole my username. Grrr.
