THIS IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTANDING THIS COMIC: this is part of a serious autobio series I started months back to document my gender transition. These took place months ago, during the early days, when I was very visibly trans. I’d only been on hormones for 5 months.
June 26th, 2016. I had a hard time seeing myself as a real woman due to internalized transphobia toward myself, I was deeply uncomfortable with my body image when I wasn’t yet close to passing. It’s still something I struggle with from time to time, though not nearly as often. It can difficult to acknowledge internalized transphobia but it’s a real thing. I’m not perfect, I have hangups and baggage.
