Like me, Alexis is lactose-intolerant. It's not a major character point, but I thought showing it by having her get a glass of strawberry milk (a thing I drink sometimes to de-stress) would make sense.

@EmilyAnnCoons: Just a lil advice, when your characters walking you shouldnt have the leg raised that high, makes it look like she is about to sprint, or she is weirdly balancing.

I see I am not the only person in the world that drinks calm-the-fuck-down milk.

Also, yay! New trans comic!

Argue all you want about what the worst part of being a trans woman is, for me it's the super depressing inner monologues. There is just so much anxiety fodder :|

RSS feed?

Do you have an RSS feed so I can keep up with the comic using Feedly?

@Anna: All Smack Jeeves comics do. Just go to the main page of the comic and add /rss/ to the end of the url. Like ours would be http://alexisperkins.smackjeeves.com/rss/

@Erin: For me, it's not being accepted by my family, who are the ones I feel should be accepting of me no matter what because they're my family.

@EmilyAnnCoons: thank you. I didn't know that. I can do one for Wildflowers too now. :) Loving the comic so far by the way.

@Anna: haha, I actually just got contacted by the person who does Wildflowers about getting added to a list of trans comics XD Never read it or heard of it before, but it's funny that I'm hearing about it multiple times now all of a sudden.

hello!

I just found this comic because it was recommended by the lady who writes wild flowers! I was not dissapointed. I can't wait to see where this goes and is now to be checked weekly with the likes of Rain Wildflowers questionable content and dumbing of age. Great job and keep up the good work!

Excitement intensifies!

Do you have an update schedule or is it sporadic? Either way I can't wait for the next update

@EmilyAnnCoons: That is another really shitty aspect, and I'm sorry that that's happened to you. :(
I have a pretty supportive family, but we have had arguments over transitions related stuff. I always feel like I'm the problem after we aren't in the heat of the moment anymore, regardless of whether it's mine, theirs, or no bodies fault. I don't mind at the time nearly as much as afterwards, and thus the inner monologues for me.

@Erin: My parents are convinced that transitioning at all is some major sin and that if I do that I'll go to Hell or some shit. I'm like "I don't even believe in that shit anyway, so I'm already going to Hell" lol

@EmilyAnnCoons: And this is another pet peeve of mine: using my religion (christianity) as a way to try to say that trans or queer people are somehow wrong. I hate it that people feel the need to justify their hatred/stupidity with something that I care about. Same thing with crazy "psychologists" perverting science when they start spouting nonsense about trans people.

@EmilyAnnCoons: errgh, wildflowers, Im all for trans comics but that comic was depressing as hell. Comics are supposed to whisk you away into another life, wildflowers just makes you feel like crap. its 2% happy moments, 98% depressing and suicidal.

I thought the leg was because she was skipping while spinning on herself.
