Did Dr Bernt REALLY graduate Summa Cum Laude? She does seem like a pretty killer woman when it comes to this kind of thing, it wouldn't surprise me. Wonder where she got her diploma?

Sorta feel bad for Mr Andrews in this one, he is sorta being thrown under the bus. Julie is sort of going for an 'us vs them' right now though, and he just happened to exist in that room.

It doesn't make anything she said less valid though. Annie said it herself, she was never on a team before coming to Calgary. She never DID anything except read. And now look at her! Cheerleading and swimming and stuff!
Too bad that isn't where it ends when dealing with someone with an unstable identity. We must go further!

Yeah! Lets jump on the all men are shitbags train just because we happened to have been mistaken for one for a while! Toot toot!

Really though, wtf is this shit. You dont need to give anti-white-male tumblrinas any more confirmation that their views are okay. As a trans comic youre gonna get a lot of tumblr, and therefore a lot of idiots who thing every man is a rapist misogynistic pig. Just no :/

@Woo...: One can agree with some points of the other faction while still maintaining distance. The standard three point essay has a contrition paragraph which then provides a dissective argument, to show that the point is made but the reasoning around it is fallacious.

When did I put anything to do with white people in here?

Also, if you read the author comments, and I quote;
"Sorta feel bad for Mr Andrews in this one, he is sorta being thrown under the bus. Julie is sort of going for an 'us vs them' right now though, and he just happened to exist in that room."
In other words, Dr Bernt is creating a dichotomous system so Annie can have a foundation on which to grow the rest of her understanding of self. If this was the final page in the chapter and this was the only self-realization in the story, then I would agree that this follows the tumblr agenda. But this chapter goes on for another month at least, and has nuance and depth.

Further, this comic is about a binary trans girl, written by a binary trans woman. Tumblr hates the binary system. Additionally, the only reason I have a tumblr account at all is to contact the developers of Portside Story (another trans comic) and I have never posted anything there. I am as anti-tumblr as a person can be, because their brand of feminism and the way they support non-trans people being trans is destructive to those who actually need help. On top of all of that, I have never been mentioned anywhere but Reddit, as my sub count is quite low and because I so adamently refuse to tow the tumblr line.

I am sort of wondering if you formed your response with a real objection or if you just saw a single page and thought it was a microcosm of the entire 1400 posted entries so far.

You introduce me to Portside Stories and it's done already, but hey at least there's Goodbye to Halos too.
