ladyapplesauce asked: I think what the asker meant is that most trans women feel they are and always have been women, and don't need to become women. That said, I know some gender variant folx who find the phrase appropriate to their experiences. It does however, have a history of being used to say that trans* folk are not 'really' members of their gender, and have to 'become' members, which cis folk do not, and thereby treating said trans* folk as lesser.
That’s perfectly fine with me, although no one needs my approval for that. People can be who they want to be, that’s the mentally healthiest possible expression for anyone. I don’t really understand the politics, and I live in a country where the politics are a little different (trans people are more accepted in more open Asian counties like Japan and Thailand). I apologize if my remarks offended people, but I will amend my language when explained.
manic-depressed-pixi-dream-bitch asked: The latest comic is anti-trans. The phrase "want to become a woman" is often used to dismiss and de-gender trans women. I'm really disappointed...
I’m sorry you see it that way, but from my own perspective, there is nothing wrong with wanting to become a woman, or change your gender, or anything. People are allowed to be whatever they want, and to say that anyone who says they would like to become a woman is dissing trans people… you’re reading into the comic far more than there is, and those familiar with Dr. Lovetalk know that she is a terrible and extremely judgemental therapist :)
boat-of-confusion asked: "depcom" is such a cute nickname >.<
“depression comix” just takes so long to type;;;
shecountsblacksheep asked: Thank you.
I don’t know what I did but you ‘re welcome!
I apologize for the previous (now deleted) post - wrong blog.

fryonic asked: Updating on Saturday evening? That's the most depressing time of all! Is there a method to your madness?
Yes there is!
You see, American EST Saturday evening is my Sunday morning. I know from past experience that updating in the evening over there will make it more likely that a post will be seen as that’s the prime viewing time. The reason it’s Saturday is because I scanned it a few hours ago and that will be the next evening. And if Saturday evening is depressing anyways, why not share it with a comic that knows and cares?
