Gimme Gimme Gimme

I usually have a blurb that I write in my head as I draw comics – to go alongside the strip to elaborate on what I’m trying to say. Usually, by the time I’m done with the strip, however, I’ve said it to myself so many times that I feel less motivated to write it down. Oh well.

I really like this video, I watched it about a month or so ago, and it has felt like it stuck in my mind, and I keep coming back to it.

  1. This reminds me of the episode of “Gay Pimpin’ with Jonny McGovern” where the homeless man says to Linda James, “Excuse me, miss, can I borrow some money, sir?”

    Hang in there, Mr. T!

  2. Beautiful post Sam! I think gay, straight, bi, trans whatever we all somewhat feel like that, just some more than others and some more often than others.

    BTW I think if I was gonna be a guy it’d be the ability to remove lids from jars without tapping them on the bench that I would find very satisfying.

  3. Haha yes Alex – it quite often starts with one set of gendered titles, then moves to another, and then the absolute avoidance of them. I really like the avoidance one.

    Reatha, thanks! Yes, feeling misunderstood is pretty universal, and I try to keep that in my mind a lot of the time. And Yes! Jar lids! I usually go purple in the face trying to remove them, so I don’t have to get someone else to do it for me.

  4. I can totally relate to this Sam. People are always like “is that a man …?” with that question in their voices.Or they guess my gender and guess it wrong. I can’t wait for the testesterone as well. Facial hair for the win!

    • Haha hell yeah! I have soo many fantasies of the awesome moustaches and beards I will grow! I’m a little bit scared when I get on T I won’t actually grow any new hair at all, but it’s still fun to think about 🙂 Especially since facial hair is such a straight-forward marker for people to see you as a guy.

  5. Yeah. 🙂 Facial hair. I’d like to see what I look like when I had my first shot.

    And one thing I find about trans is most people assume I must be a gay transman when I’m not lol. I could easily fit the stereotype though!
