Author's Notes

I spent a lot of time for at least a couple of years after transitioning asking women whether women did this or if they did that. It wasn't until a transmasc friend sat me down and explained to me how important it was that I don't worry what women are supposed to do, and instead worry about what I want to do as a woman. Some of that is kind of wrapped up in this, because I imagine Marie still slips and is trying to figure it all out, but hasn't quite gotten there yet. Gender is a constellation of expression imo, not a sliding scale, and while in some ways society defines gender, we also have a say in how society defines something. So while we're trying to reach the ideal of womanhood, we also have to think about what we think that ideal should be. So many people are hurt by gender, because they've become slaves to the societal roles they were assigned. Boys don't cry, Girls aren't funny, etc. etc. etc. I think it's important to remember that we're all just people, and we should be able to do what we want, and be who we want to be, and that's what I'm trying to do with this comic. I'm trying to be the person I want to be, and I hope that you can too. (Patreon is up for those who want to support me.) I will not be spamming this with every post, but there'll be a niiiice shiny button on the site soon.] If you want to read that whole news article, or in the future other in world shit, I've put a place where I can put things I write like that. I've got somewhere I'm hosting voices, and I'm actually working with AI and / or voice actors depending, on creating voices for these. I don't know what I'll use it for but it'll be rad as always.
