Guess I'm lucky, in that I've never had a similar experience. And with the way I look, I find it very hard to imagine there is any doubt in anyone's mind that I am a trans woman. I've never had trouble with hairdressers. I've never had trouble with my manicurist. If they say anything, it's behind my back.

@Lex-Kat: The girl with the blue hair was the hairdresser. These guys are just jackasses hanging out beside the mall bathrooms for whatever reason.

The hairdresser on the previous page asked for sir or ma'am because of the conversation taking place by Deb, not because she was talking bad about Annie.

I need another clarification. (Sorry about all of these. Had I been reading this all along my issues would have been answered a long time ago, I'm sure.)

People (including and actually *mostly* Annie) keep bringing up her shoulders and hands. The drawings on this page accentuate them, but generally, they appear to be perfectly normal for a teenage girl. In fact, every time she appears aside Wendy, for instance, they are comparable. And Bree is clearly bigger. So what gives? And as for an Adam's Apple...she doesn't have one...

I've always thought this was just another Annie self-perception issue, but now these boys are saying it...

@sunspark: It is called priming. When you are told to look for aspects of a person, you will find them regardless of if they exist or not. It is one of the base issues with racism in media - when you are trained to look for a specific thing in a group, you are more likely to find it even if it is very minor.

Also, any physical differences Annie may have to other girls is going to be visually difficult for me to get across because my art is poor. I wish I could do subtley, but I lack the ability to do so. If I was, it would be more apparent that Annie is normal but sliiightly not.

Fun fact: if you look at the comment response above your response, I already answered your question from the day before.

Yeah. I'm actually asking these as I read the comic in question, so that is always going to be a possibility. :-)
