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 )
:iconsachi187:
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?

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...'.

I glad my school seems pretty open minded. Its middle school through high school so everyone gets to know each other for a while. By high school we surprisingly all get along. The only thing that gets annoying is racist comments, but that s rare and usually comes from the middle school. Sorry if i m talking to much. Im happy for Mika. This was a wonderful comic. :)

"...you stood up for me. That was nice"
Iīm not trans, but those simple words just tocuhed me because I know how it feels to be treated different and have noone there to stand up for you when you need it. Some people donīt know how important can be those simple acts of kindness.

I really needed this, not because I don't believe in it (far from it)
but it's easy to lose yourself amongst all the 'non believers' that you can lose sight of who you really are.
I teared up reading this because sometimes you need to be reminded that it's ok to be who you are.
