And here we have a rough explanation of what being Quoiromantic is. It's not the best explanation, but it's still an explanation.

So, in this strip, Alexis either outed herself as transgender or came off as transphobic.

@EmilyAnnCoons: Well, barring a "Oh, people say weirdly specific stuff like that all the time" sitcom dismissal, it's one or the other.

Actually, given what she just said moments before about having a "big secret", I'm pretty certain Allea has figured it out somewhere between panels 4 and 5.

@Anon: Well, I won't say anything one way or the other, but I will say that she's known as "Derpy" and "Ditzy" for a few reasons hehe

as one trans person to another, was the word "transgendered" intentional? i get that not all trans ppl are experts on gender or terms, and I can see that as a reason why Alexis would say the "-ed" vs just "transgender", but as a comic, there's probably a good chance there to use the right terms?

like, just bc it's still a really common mistake in general (since trans is a descriptor/not a verb, ect)

@Syne: Honestly? It was put there because she was referring to both her own thing and to the idea of both transsexuality and transgenderism (which are different). In turn, she used "transgendered" as that seems to be the broad, descriptive term I see when people are referring to both transsexual and transgender. If I'm wrong, though, I apologize if I gave any offense ^^"

The more you know...

Welp, I just learned something, and to be honest, that basically defines how I am with people. Only instead of not knowing whether I like people or not, I know I like them. I just...like everyone...unless I don't, I guess? If they're my friend, I have the potential to fall in love with them if they only show interest in me.

Now the only problem with that is that when you couple that with an uncomfortably strong libido, it makes things more than a little awkward and tense sometimes...

@Mia the Slime: Yeah, I felt it was important to show my own personal orientation in this comic because I have never seen any other comic that touches on it. I've never even heard of it talked about before except for in one post made by a friend of mine a year back. It's what made me discover what I was, because I was curious and looked it up after she mentioned it. Couple that with the fact that Quoiromatia can also be followed up with Quoisexuality (the inability to distinguish between romantic and sexual feelings) and you have my orientation in a nutshell.

@Anon: Allea isn't exactly in a emotion state to apply logic, so it might have slipped by her.

@EmilyAnnCoons:

If one uses the term 'transgendered' to describe as you stated, then using the same grammar usage, does one use the term 'blackened woman' to describe an African-American woman, and does one use the term 'lesbianed woman', to describe a woman who is attracted sexually to other women ? Can you see why it is troubling to use such terms and such grammar usage ?
