Very frequently, when I have to present as a male, I get depressed. Over little things – stupid things – like being associated with masculine things or addressed as a guy. It seems so trivial, but that kind of thing just wrecks me.

To my understanding, a majority of transsexuals suffer the same issue should the situation come up. So I tried to reflect this scenario as well as I could, with a mopey and uncooperative Rain just ready for this day to end.

Thank goodness for a trying-but-failing Rudy. It’s got to be frustrating for him, but he’s trying really hard.

As for me this happens when I had job interviews and tried to act "normal" - you know, eye contact, body language and the whole crap. And when these people are talking.. WHY exactly can't they just say "sarcasm sarcasm" or "irony irony" like I do?!
But ah well. Awesome comic btw. I'd probably buy it if I only had money... But I spent all of it, 300€, on those comic books of my child hood. WHY DID THE LIBRARY SELL THEM, WHYYYY?! ;A;

I'm with Rain... Please let this week go by so she can be normal again. My nerves can't take it.

I am pretty sure I failed a job interview due to being in drab. It was a McDonald's that was in desperate need of workers, and I even had manager friends there, and the franchise owner was gay, and I was pretty sure I answered all of those interview questions satisfactorily, but... They didn't hire me, despite needing workers for months afterwards. I went dressed in boy clothes, because I didn't have anything formal in girl clothes, but I must have been awkward during the interview...

Interestingly, I've only lost two interviews since transition, and both were encouraging. I don't think I passed any interviews as male...
