By the way, the Hulk being 'always angry' is not canon. The Avengers made it up to be convenient. He cannot control the Hulk. The nearest he can get is all the methods he uses in the previous Hulk movies - meditation, controlling breathing, walking away from stuff. So yeah, when that came up in the movie, I was pretty irked. Cuz.. nerd reasons.
Oh right, a heartbreaking transgender web comic.

Le sigh. There is a whole lot you can say about gendered pronouns. I'm not a feminist, but we all know that being a pussy is one of the worst things for a man to be, right? And having the balls for something is a great respectful thing, right?
As a young man, being called a pussy equates to being called a girl, and being called a girl means you are weak, because you are not a man.

So you take on the attacks and become ever harder. You keep taking on more and more scars, until the girl inside can never fight her way out. In protecting ourselves, we bury the things that can make us who we are.

Autobiographical: I was always angry. I am still always angry. It is hard to rest.

I just wanna say a few words and it may be a little off topic with the page but it's something I wanna say.

I'm not trans, I've never met someone face to face who is. My dream carrer is to be a councilor, I want to help people, to keep them from the dark places in their minds and to bring it out of it. I'm sure that one day if I follow my carrer I'll come across someone whose going through what annie is going through. Your comic, and by extension you, have givin me some insight into how I'll be able to help said individuals and how they think.

I really hope none of that comes across as offensive I've never really been good with my words when it comes to discussing about how I feel and what I think, i just wanted to say thank you for giving me a little more understanding about something I can never really understand.

@bloody_rose: None of that could possibly be offensive. The point of WF is to show how bad it can be and how good it can be, so readers can work things out in a safe way. It is implausible that anyone would go through the same degree of physical violence, but it represents the mental pain a person can go through in a format that those who are not trans can understand.

It is clear that you are doing your best to learn and help others. That is something a lot of people can't understand how to do, because they spend too much time looking to help themselves. You should be proud of your ambitions.
(Also, career is spelled thuswise, career. I have a team of people who correct when I spell poorly!)

@GreenKrog: a lot of people tend to get offened by what I say, i have a hard time sugar coating things and a hard time explaining myself so that's why I always make it clear that I'm not trying to be offensive :)

I'm a big believer in you have to help others before you can help yourself and currently that's what im working on. I want to be able to help others because right now I have too many issues to sort through that's kept me from going from my dreams. Honestly i had the same kind of mindset as annie when I was her age. I hated and lothed myself all because others told me I was worthless. I've been in some very dark places and I still fall back to those dark places because I haven't truely gotten past it yet. However I'm better then what I was and im actually in a good enough place I can begin the pursue my dreams ^_^ i may just be a hypocrite right now, telling others to love and be happy with themselves when I can't even do it, but one day I won't and my job will be to help all those who needs me, and make sure that those I help understand that I will never judge them.

Also I kinda have a hard time with spelling and grammer, i actually tend to dumb myself down a lot because of it. I Don't get offend by corrections though so long as it's done in a poilte way :)

As for the Avengers. I did not nerdrage at the always angry Hulk. There were hints of that at the end of "The Incredible Hulk" movie (that he was learning some sort of control). There still are circumstances where he does not have control. Anyway, that always angry thing was something that helped me. I had a counselor tell me that and I was in denial about it at the time. When I saw the Avengers for the first time, there was something else that was going on in Mark Ruffalo's portrayl of Bruce that I could not put my finger on until he said that he was always angry. Then I recognized that in myself.

I have been fighting with myself for a long time. Your comic has helped me tremendously. It helps me by showing that as we go thorough this journey that we will have doubts, be angry, get low, be scared, and still make it through. And we can be all of this even with the best support we can have (and feel like we are letting those who support us down). Thank you for doing this comic. I am at that sifting through life and trying to figure out feelings and just allowing myself to feel the feelings that for so long I felt I shouldn't (so I bottled them up).

@JennaD: The Hulk movies represent the timeline of the Hulk about as poorly as the XMen: DOFP represent Wolverine/Kitty Pryde. So just nope. Nope I say. NOPE.

This particular chapter may be the trigger for a lot of people. It is about how we deny ourselves even when we don't know we are denying ourselves. Some people really did know they were built wrong to begin with. The majority don't and try to deny it, so when it climbs it's way to the surface we have already become battle hardened in a war we didn't know we were fighting.

Thank you for being a reader. I hope you figure out your feelings in a good way and don't end up always angry :)

On a related note

One thing that most people don't understand is how different the process is for everyone. Me, I wasn't angry, I felt guilty and shame more than anger. I was also scared of getting "found out". Took me 40+ years to come to terms with it. Some people take even longer.

I was waiting a long time for Annie to just go off on her so called "therapist" that her mother was making her got to. And on a a related note, did you hear about the CAMH closure f of their transgender clinic because they were effectively practicing reparative therapy but not caling it that.How big of a story was that in Canada?

@DCFAN: It was essentially invisible to anyone who wasn't already paying attention to it. To the trans kids in Ontario, this is a huge step forward. Zucker is a terrible person and I hope he will never be allowed near children ever again.

The fifth panel is so me. I began hating myself in the 6th grade. There didn't seem to be a reason, I didn't know why. I just went into a darkness that has taken me years to start to come out of.

I still am not there, but there is definitely light at the end of my tunnel.
