First, I think I may just wanna point this out: "When I met you, you were his cute girl"
I think you mean "This"

"your autistic"
you're*

Secondly: "Fastest Thing Alive" Sonic reference?

Thirdly: God dammit, Trevor. "You're a guy"
No she's not
"But you have... you know... guy parts"
No she does not, Trevor.
A woman cannot have guy parts.
If a woman has a penis, then that penis is women parts because Alexis is a woman.
*Facepalms*
I know it's just fiction, but I'm amazed that people are still this ignorant when it's so simple.

@TallMist: Whoops, thanks a lot for pointing those mistakes out. I fixed them immediately.

Yep his shirt is a Sonic reference, Emily gave me the guide that it should be a Sonic spoof. The character on the shirt is Action Henk, the main character in a game my friends created. They also have their 'sonic' as in Blue Blaze Henk. actionhenk.com
Decided to do a Henk tribute since it's a Sonic reference, way to go around copyright, and a shout out to my friends all at once.

Yes wat Trevor says is quite ignorant. I mostly blame it due to standard education linking gender and sex toghether like fixed and identical. most people I have met see this as the same thing, I myself did too when I was a teenager since you just... don't know any better. Unfortunately.

@TallMist:
Well, I wouldn't say that if Alexis has a p****, that it's a female part.
It's just a male part that's on a female.

@SilverNinetales: Actually, funny fact... everyone starts birth as female. It is the hormones in the mother's body that determine male or female in body. It actually has 0 to do with the sperm. If the mom's body pumps testosterone instead of estrogen, the fetus inside begins to change and the "vagina" transforms into the ballsack, while the clit becomes the penis. This is why ftm trans people going through hormones end up growing out their clit to make a penis.

That said, technically, I would agree with you on the "it's not a female part" bit, because (as a trans person myself) I feel disconnected from my body parts. It's a dysphoria, a hatred of those certain things. You don't view them as you or something of your own. On the other hand, I also agree with @TallMist because, plain and simple, they are still my parts. One friend helped me become less depressed over being trans by telling me "You're a girl with a penis, so what?" It made me feel better. I still feel disconnected from it, and I still hate it, but it is true. I am female, and those parts are mine, so they are technically female parts.

not angry confusion just plain confused

i know people are giving Trevor a hard time for being "ignorant" but i dont think its a hateful ignorance, it seems like he does want to understand and in the way hes acting its not purposefully trying to be mean, people seem to forget this is something totally foreign to him. so if he says something wrong its not out of hate, just he doesn't know. am i way off base with this or not. and for the record im trans myself but i still can see the other side of the coin.

@firestarter3d: Agreed. Trevor isn't ignorant because he's being mean. He's ignorant because he doesn't understand. He is, however, willing to understand. He's willing to listen to a person who is transsexual and learn and understand what transsexuality is from them, which is far more than a lot of people are willing to do. I think that makes Trevor a good guy and shows he's really trying his best. He's not "a nice guy" who thinks they're a great person but is actually terrible. He's a guy who is trying to be nice and trying to learn, and that is a good thing.

Just wanted to say that I binge read this in one sitting (chapters 1-5) and I am really enjoying this comic and have been sharing it around with friends :)

Keep up the great work Emily and Rensje!

@TallMist: you're my favorite fellow reader cuz your avatar is L. I loved that guy, and then Lite killed him. Down with Lite, more L :D

@castlemaid: Hahaha, well, Death Note is a favorite of mine. ^_^ I was thinking of changing the avatar back to Darth Maul or to the new Spider-Man or something like that, but when you settle into an avatar, it's hard to find one that, in your eyes, tops your current one. It's how I felt about this image of Tigris from Hunger Games that I had. I absolutely LOVED it. Looked so elegant and graceful and kinda royal with her hand on her chest the way it was. And I loved the tiger design on her face. Needless to say, it was hard for me to change it to L, but I did. :)
