Hey, so... someone recently said that they heard that you hated trans people? This is literally a case of "He said she said" and I wanted to hear from you because I've loved your comic for a few years now, and considering how progressive you've strived to be, it just doesn't make sense to me that you'd hate trans people?
Haha, that’s ridiculous. I don’t hate trans people. I have several close trans friends, I live with and have lived with trans friends, and one of my parents is a transgender woman. I try to do right by the few transgender characters I have, but I’ve got a lot to learn and they haven’t gotten a whole lot of “screen time”. I guess that last one is kind of too flimsy to use as proof, though…
I mean, I’m not really sure how I can prove that I don’t hate trans people beyond my behavior in my life and social media. It’s not like they give certificates for that sort of thing. Maybe some of my trans friends can chip in if they wanted? shrug
