i’ve been really deeply sad lately, so i haven’t been drawing as much. but i have some more ideas for some. we just put one in the latest copy of the brooklyn transcore zine. i want to get back on them, maybe when my brain is a more hospitable place. i’m glad you like them. <3
Some people don’t like to watch scary movies or sad movies. They say, “why would you make yourself sad or scared on purpose?” I understand that completely. My answer would be, “I’m scared and sad all the time, at least, for a moment, I can make it about something that isn’t real.”
WHY IS NOBODY TALKING ABOUT LUPITA’S PHOTOBOMB OMFG
when dudes read comic books about women who are poorly drawn sex objects, and don’t see anything wrong with that, i’m just baffled by how little they are capable of empathizing with women. like, how are you looking at this and thinking ‘hot’?
i can’t even imagine what dating these dudes must be like. my guess is it would go like this:
him: hey babe, would you mind getting me a beer?
me: i have been bleeding from my eyes for the last half an hour. how have you not noticed this??
him: uh, how am i supposed to know that? i’m not a mind reader. i could like, drive you to the hospital as soon as i get to a save point.
me: fuck you.
him: why are women so crazy?
You have clearly found someone else’s babytrans photo, because the girl you are referring to lacks even a modicum of fashion sense or understanding of self-care. Maybe you’re looking at the modelling photo.
Okay, this response was rude. I apologize. I’m still a lot more self-conscious about that photograph than I expected to be.
Thank you for saying such kind things, especially about something I feel so vulnerable about.
no need to apologize. its just that when i look at pictures like that i see a girl who’s afraid and embarrassed and brave and holding faith in her own beauty all at once. i understand why it would be so painful for you to look at, but that’s what i see. its a mix of emotions that i can identify with and makes me feel like those feelings which were mine alone for so long are shared and real. so that’s why pictures like that are cute to me. i’m sorry if i seemed flip - i really did want to thank you.
the first time I saw this video I thought to myself “7 minutes? There’s no way I’m going to watch all of that”
how wrong I was
every moment of this video is unmitigated joy.
if anyone didn’t already know, i am a goddamn space cadette. like, luna lovegood levels of absent minded and redic.
thank you. you are kind. so i shouldn’t say how i totally transed myself? jk
