I tried a thing with perspective in frame 1. I studied a bunch of comic book things and it almost sort of looks how I want. Kinda.

Ever heard a southerner totally freak out? They tend to stop using accents. It is odd, like listening to British people sing and they sound 'muricanized.

Wonder what Zora's problem is anyways..

I love the blatant hypocrisy on display here. Let's say we accept premise that Annie is a man for now. Obviously not true, but Zora believes it, so we have to roll with it if we are to examine her logic.

So, with the premise that Annie is a man, who shared a locker room with women... that's wrong because? We all know the answer to that one: obviously, it's because men are attracted to women, and so they could use that opportunity that to be all pervy and watch women undress.

The whole argument kinda falls apart when you remember that Zora is a lesbian.

Yan makes a good point about the hypocrisy Zora is displaying, but maybe Zora was attracted to Annie and feels more "duped" than "betrayed"?

Also, I'm a southerner myself, but I don't have much of an accent because I was homeschooled. However, when I'm in a hurry or upset, I do get a twangy southern accent, and I'll start leaving out more and more syllables... exactly the opposite of what you stated about southerners. I will now have to pay more attention to my buddies to see what happens to their accents when they get excited

@Nick:

Fellow southerner, confirming. My mom has a natural Ohio accent, just like her mom, but her natural angry accent can only be described Southern. For instance, its well known that when she's pissed, she pronounces "hell" exactly like "hail", and even draws it out a bit. I don't really get mad often enough to know what I sound like, so I can't say, though.

@Grenartia: Maybe it is just an Alberta thing then. Or maybe just limited to the few interactions I have had with angry people with southern accents.

Panel 2---Here we see, that after months and months of Annie presenting mentally, emotionally, and socially as her correct gender of a pretty, young teenage girl, with all of that evidence out in the open for all to see, including what Zora has observed, and so what does Zora choose to believe in ? Yup, you guessed it, no more than 30 seconds of " What's between your legs ? That must be your true self ".

People tend to judge other people in two ways. One is a knee-jerk, kick-butt reaction, and the other is a well though out review and decision-making process. Yesterday, I judged Zora with the knee-jerk reaction to her " outing " of Annie. Here, today, Zora is doing the same knee-jerk reaction in judging Annie on the most inconsequential evidence of 'what is between your legs'. Such is Human Nature !

BTW---Panel 3---At least Cindi is trying to help disarm Zora, as that is the least that she can do for outing Annie. But that is actually Flint to the rescue, isn't it ?

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: Yes, that is Flint overpowering Zora. Cindi did what she could to stop Zora herself, but an enraged dyke can be hard to deal with!

Hopefully before anyone can go off on me about women needing to be saved by a man and that this additional trope was entirely unnecessary, the rest of the night unfolds to show that Annie could have defended herself - if she had felt like it.

@GreenKrog: I personally find the implications of that criticism rather disturbing. It is absolutely ridiculous to expect writers to never have a male character provide any help to a female character. For God's sake, they're friends, it's only natural that they'd come to each other's aid, regardless of gender.

Frankly, I think anyone who believes that female characters should save male characters, but the opposite should never happen is horribly sexist.

Bitch! I can't believe she pulled a effing knife on Annie.
