The statement Lexi made in the last frame is very poignant and self-reflective to me and might be why some people see trans people as selfish for wanting to transition. When I think back at all of the people I've affected, the ones who were affected most were the ones whom I was good friends with. They knew him (my pre-transition self) and missed him and never had a chance to say goodbye. I think that's where the whole trust thing comes in. They see this new person before them, not the old person they knew, and no matter what you say (to some of them), they will always feel like you betrayed their trust because you had to hide this from them. They know that what they've confided in you - all their secrets - were said in the context of you being who they thought you were and there are some things/secrets that probably shouldn't have been said, things they might be embarrassed to say to a woman.

@claredin: That depends entirely on the person. The RMitch knew I was exactly who I always was and gave zero fucks about what was gonna be between my legs. My parents basically pointed out that the person I was never actually existed and they never knew him. So while that person was dead, it was someone who was never really there.

I've really been lucky though, I've lost basically nobody.

Edit: But this comic was about actual suicide, not transition. Which is something I am a bit more familiar with.
