Really kind of obvious by SirPaahdin Really kind of obvious by SirPaahdin
So here it is. The comic I have worked on for a while.

I'm sick nobody knowing anything about transfolk; they don't even mention it in school. Transvestites and transsexuals are mixed up. Homosexuals and transsexuals are mixed up. Girls are this and boys are that; what actually makes a person a girl or a boy? What they have between their legs? Should a bodypart actually decide of what gender a person is, even though they are convinced that what they have between their legs just isn't them? Even though being included as a member of their biological sex disgusts and depresses them?

Think about that. I'm sick of the ignorance. If someone identifies as a girl it's a she, if someone identifies as a boy it's a he. If someone identifies as something in between or something completely different it might be a ze or something - man, we need more official pronouns here. :|
But well. Use the right pronouns and names for transfolk. Please. It can't be THAT hard.

I want this comic to be seen by as many people as possible, simply to spread the word. I made this for the sake of transgendered people everywhere. Stay strong!

Remember - I'm simply trying to educate by correcting stuff that bugs me - I'm not picking a fight when responding to comments with content I find offensive to transfolk :)

EDIT: ok I've gotten quite sick of discussing with people here, just sayin'. I probably won't reply to long-ass comments about how "TRANS IS A LIIIIIE" and all that bullcrap. Please educate yourself. Thanks.

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-11-30
Huge-ass nameless FtM comic by ~SirPaahdin has been suggested by many people. It's tells a story that's perhaps more common than people realise, told beautifully with just enough humour to give you a laugh without detracting from the story and the issues it raises. ( Featured by kangel )

This piece of work speaks volumes and definitely gets across the point it's trying to convey. Transpeople are people too. They don't want to cause problems they just want to be accepted as who they are. I think this piece of work shows that both in written form and with the drawings. I applaud you for putting it out there and pouring your soul into it. The only problem i see with the comic is that it is in vertical format instead of having either multiple pages or being horizontal. Overall though great job and I look forward to more of your work.
What do you think?

I loved that. Can perfectly see this happening on real life.  Still so difficult for people to understand.

You know... your character Linus actually looked female and it really confused this story for me. It makes more sense once I figured that out. Don't know why I didn't go 'Linus is a male name, you know...'.

Saw this on tumblr without a mention so I put the image into Google and found the full comic! This is beautiful, and if I was Mika when his mother said "you look like a boy is that what you want!?" I would of shout "hell yeah"
