Maria offers a little bit of cheering up, a little bit of snark, and a little bit of philosophy.

And I'm left unsure of what to add down here. ^^;

But please do enjoy. And offer any of your own thoughts, if you like. ^_^

I'll never get the "gay guys are effeminate, lesbians are butch" stereotype.

Beyond that it's a stereotype, how is it that being drawn to masculine company makes you less masculine?

I mean, stereotypically men with feminine
interests are feminine, so you'd think it
would be the other way around.

Same logic applies to lesbians, of course, but there's always that stupid
notion people have that the man is always
in power to explain THAT stupidity.

In short, weird myth is weird.

It's also kinda crazy how people's gender identity/sexual attractions usually are paralled with masculinity.
For example, like you said, lesbians are stereotyped to be butch, but another example is trans female are stereotyped to be gay men. I hope it doesn't sound like I'm insulting anyone, but it just shows how much of a patriarchal society we live in.

On a lighter note, am I the only one who just realized they forgot how Rain looks like with long hair? I'm so ashamed... Lol

I have gotten that stereotype, secondhand, from a couple of co-workers. I'm a gamer. I'm a girl. I like wearing t-shirts with pixies, angels, and other beautiful women on them.

And so my sincerity toward being a woman is placed in doubt because I don't wear frilly, lacey things constantly, and I don't wear enough make-up (except lipstick).

I actually like wearing those kind of things, but being a double-X lady, I don't get to buy many nice things that fit and look good to me.

I am trying to lose weight, but I'm losing that war. For a while, it was a stalemate, but then I got sick and stopped going to the gym. Now I'm trying to play catch-up, and so far I'm losing.

Second to last panel is a great shot, I think the best depiction of Rain's new do so far.

Maria's right. And change oneself can be even harder, because of this. I think every trans person feared transition or coming out because they thought that other people, such as family, coworkers, or friends won't like this change.

Emily's chill is because of her baby... Maria... Can't... Do... That... Right... ? @_@

Maria decides to put on her shrink hat and flirt with rain a bit at the same time.
Elsewhere in he universe Emily's spidey senses are tingling... Something is not right with the force.
I LOVE both Emily and Rain reactions to Maria's comment, it's perfect! I truly LOL'd good with that one. :~D

When I first read this, I didn't know what butch meant, so I misread it and thought it said Dutch and I was very confused.
