It seems that Julie is hiding something, but what? Doesn't seem either Trevor or Alexis realize, though.

Oh man this is gonna be like one of those *serious* competitive tournaments isn't it.

Alexis speaks the truth here. Most people at tourneys are so focused on playing to win that they don't really socialize with anyone else, except for maybe the person they're playing against if they're nice. At my YGO locals, I have occasionally seen guys bring their girlfriends along, only for the poor girls to sit by themselves doing nothing while everybody else plays cards and ignores them until the tourney's over. Not exactly the same situation here, but there's a fair chance Julie ends up playing Candy Crush for 3 hours.

Speaking as an introvert, just being present while these games are going on is a great way to have a "social experience" without ... like ... actually experiencing society. It's like watching your friend play a 1-player video game. You're not there to play, you're there to support, and watch, and experience.

Although, it seems like sooooomeone might have ulterior motives...

@FallingStar: True, also Julie doesn't seem like much of an introvert.

Oh, damn, she's been horny lately and now she's perving on Alexis. The prospect of getting some hot cock in a feminine package must appeal to her.

@guest: yeah... not sure what to think of this comment... but I can definitely say that's absolutely not it.

@EmilyAnnCoons:

Party pooper!

And you know exactly what to think.


It's why Tgurlz appeal to SOME lesbians and bisexual or pansexual ladies. No need for a lady's partner to use a strap-on dildo when she already has a handy dandy meat appendage ready for use (that is, for those who happen to enjoy penetration). And the owner of the meat stick is actually a woman anyways who doesn't do and say all the stupid shit men do.

Then again there are some who prefer plastic since it's more reliable. And a girl can't give cunnilingus to a girl without a cunnis.

She needs to have at least a few older cards in her deck. That makes her vulnerable. Alexis is going to get her ass handed to her in a sling.

@guest: Julie is straight though... she has no interest in girls. And the reason I don't know what to think of your comment is that I feel these comments are a tad transphobic... But, I've not seen any comments complaining about it, so I've let it slide and not deleted them.

@guest (the second): Her burn deck is pretty strong, but yeah, she's only been playing for a year. She hasn't got any cards except for the sets that have been out in the last year. Unfortunately, this means that cards from such sets as the God Wars or Unleashed aren't going to be in her deck. Against such cards, she's probably going to get stomped.

@EmilyAnnCoons:

Yeah, well this is not the first time such harsh sets have been mentioned. I think Alexis discussed it with Julie, Trevor and maybe Allea before. That's exactly what I was referring to. It makes her vilnerable.


Oh, and I am the person of both conversations you were having. After I had already posted comments for the first topic I had thoughts about the tournament and how Alexis would be vulnerable.


Transphobic? I'm not afraid of myself. I could have mentioned some of the possible pitfalls of being trans like how the dysphoria can be really harsh for us and make for very bad problems. Isolating even and having no fun at all. Being miserable. Me, I don't hate my penis so much. And if I ever get the operation, it's tissues essential for that. (Sometimes I think about if I could grow a cunt, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries, it might be okay to keep the penis. Being futa. But losing the penis could work.) But I hate my balls very much and think a lot about cutting them out. I don't have much money for now.

@guest: Hey guest, you do know internalised transphobia is a thing right?

We really don't know what Alexis thinks of sex at the moment, we have had some inklings but nothing concrete. We also don't know how she would refer to her own genitalia. Maybe you are ok with the word cock but she might not be. I know technically we are talking about a fictional character here but I know how I bad that word makes me feel about my current genitalia state (and I have used them to produce a child even).
Basically what I am saying is that it is transphobic to refer to another trans or NB persons (or really anyone's) genitalia in a way they have yet to consent to.

@Fox_Rainbow: (and guest): Yeah, that's pretty much what I was getting at. The whole "get some hot cock in a feminine package" is... well, it's really just obscene. I mean, you really only use the term "cock" when trying to be sexy (which, in my opinion, "cock" is like... the least sexy thing you could call it). Coming from a trans person myself, if someone told me they wanted "hot cock in a feminine package" I'd straight up kick them in the gut. It's just obscene and honestly offensive to me.

Alexis here, as it has been stated, isn't even sure on her own view on sex. The idea of sex interests her, but when she imagines herself doing it, it loses all interest. She just has no interest in using her genitalia in its current form, and it's hard for her to imagine not having it as she's always had it. On top of that, she'd be extremely hurt and offended if someone basically said "I want your dick cause you're a girl with a penis".

On that note, again, Julie is completely straight. The very prospect of Alexis being a girl would really turn her off to any interest in her. Of course, while Julie may seem accepting and understanding because she's had a friendship with Alison for so long, that doesn't necessarily mean that she views her childhood friend as what she claims to be. Who knows? Maybe Julie secretly still believes Alexis is not a girl and is hoping to find some means of changing her. Or perhaps there is something much deeper than that involved in this situation.

@EmilyAnnCoons:

And whoever :


There's merely offended and then there's hurt. Or hurt and offended. What's more offensive as well as hurtful is when some anus who's a complete stranger has the gall to try to tell me I'm not female. Fuck. Oh, but just presume after several decades of living with myself that I don't have the first clue as to what's going on inside myself. As if a complete stranger who doesn't give a fuck about me is just going to tell me who I am. Stupid motherfucker. But don't say what an obtuse anus motherfucker even though that's what it's about. The fuck?



Well, no shit, Sherlock, I could CHOOSE to be offended when somebody says the other thing. Or I could give the person credit for having the good sense to not contradict me when I say who I am!

Yes, I might construe the other saying as tactless and blunt. Or being expedient in expression of what desires are there. More to be said on that but ...


Context. ... Context can say it all.

Originally, it wasn't serious. If you want to call it a bad joke, you can do that too. Sometimes a joke can be bad. And that's okay.


Yes, Julie is hetero. You said that already. Already moved on from there. Second time you said that it wasn't about her anymore. By now it's where I don't care about Julie.




Does it demean penis to say cock? Perhaps. Most of the time I say penis. But when I do say cock, prick, dick, peter, putz, pecker, wang, shlong, dork, dong, dink or even meat stick the last thing I give a flying fuck about is offending the PATRIARCHY! After it having such a long history of being so egregious to women! Or nevermind the patriarchy. Did I offend my own penis? I don't hate it (or not so much as I hate other things even though sometimes just having to look at a man can piss me the fuck off) but I'm not even sure I really even want to keep the little son of a bitch. If I offend my own penis, I just don't give a shit.

Cunt. It's not a dirty word. Originally it was about feminine power and beauty. Vagina means a sheath for a sword. Sword as euphemism for penis. Hence, it denotes subservience to men. That IS dirty. Supremely offensive. Cunt is beautiful.




Okay, I started off kidding around. Frivolous. Avoiding being serious. But when I drop having fun or fooling around. When I'm serious neither of you can see that I'm really hurting.

I want my balls gone if nothing else. I hate strangers who presume to come up to me out of whereverTF and foisting their disapproval on me. I hate touchscreen and autocorrect fucking up my words. I hate family pretenders manipulating, trying to tear me down, trying to steal my very self away from myself and trying to force me to be a man. Some family. LIARS!

I just want to be myself. The beautiful woman I was always meant to be. Why is everybody else allowed to be themselves? It's just a given. Why so entitled? What about me? Why can't they see that as different as I am how I'm not so different after all? Because everybody is different. Why can't they see I deserve to be me as well?


Well, you could have seen I was hurting but no-o-o-o-o-o-o. Thanks for cracking down all PC and shit. Thanks bunches for giving me all the sweet triggers. %-/

@guest: I'm very confused as I never once said you weren't female? That seems to be the major bunt of your argument, but as far as I know, that's just not the case? Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong and point it out to me, because I would love to know so I can be more careful later on.

That said, your argument is... very emotionally written I can tell. As a woman myself, I'm confused on why you think I'm part of "the patriarchy" as you put it? Cause that's a male thing...

For sure, I apologize for triggering you, but I just don't know what part of what I said could be taken in that manner. You do seem to have a lot of baggage, however, and I'd be happy to talk with you more about it. As a trans woman myself (who hasn't had any sort of therapy), I can completely understand your disgust for that certain part of your body.

You made a joke that seemed offensive, though. One that I would normally assume would come from some kind of cisgender person who doesn't understand transgenderism... So I'm honestly confused why a trans person would be out there making hurtful and offensive jokes of that nature... Still, this comic is here to help people, and I'd like to do so, but I can't unless you're willing to talk in a rational manner and let me know how you feel, why you feel that way, and how to avoid making you feel that way in the future. Cussing up one side and down the other at me does nothing for either of us.

@EmilyAnnCoons:




No. No. No. No. And NO.


The only things attributed to you are callousness, indifference and lack of empathy. As for the rest of it, well, all that's NOT ABOUT YOU.


This is why you need to PAY ATTENTION TO CONTEXT. If you had been doing that, then you'd already know that it was NOT ABOUT YOU.

Did you think I was blaming you for the irritation of touchscreen and shitty auto"correct" as well?


See, you told a complaint you had which, albeit, with some possibility, was questionable at best. In contrast you were given a list of things which were CLEARLY HURTFUL. Reminding me of bullshit and anus people I shouldn't have to put up with every single day. As a trans woman I had thought those real complaints were such as you'd be able to commiserate with. But in some strange way you had to make it all about you and take it as accusations directed at you.

And you try to chide me for a triviality such as "cussing?" Yes, you were blessed with the bounty of getting to read such choice words. But all that just was NOT DIRECTED AT YOU. It was told to you but it was about OTHER people and NOT ABOUT YOU. Why would you choose to make that about you? A person can tell a second person about a complaint which is about a third person and even a fourth person or more. But it's not about the second person. Which part of that concept is confusing you?


Not sure about your offhand statement of wanting to help. Before that can happen you'd have to learn how to get the right context, stop taking it all personally and learn how to listen to people. And that has the sound of an order too tall for you to cope with.
