Diary Comic XIII: (In)sufficient

Another of my diary comics, which I will eventually collect in a book as I make more. A few that I decide to share, I will post online. Others will be book exclusive.

This comic is about a struggle of perception, misgendering, and the constant internal feeling of failing simply to be.  A sort of follow up to a previous comic which drew some ire because certain people felt the burning, self-centered need to make a trans person’s struggle with misgendering all about them. Yes the language is harsh but that’s the reality of experiences, of language used against me and others and I refuse to erase that reality; these are diary comics about all the nitty gritty gross human experiences not super censored happy fun time sugar-coated extravaganza.

These comics will be based on experiences and thoughts I’ve had regarding life, and its many struggles, including those of gender, sex, mental illness, and everything in between. I am hard on myself both as a protective measure (life can’t hurt you if you beat it to the punch) and as a result of my mental issues. As a result, the language is and often will be blunt, aggressive, shocking, and sometimes painful; similarly, my humor is often dry, self-deprecating, and dark. I write the way I speak and definitely the way I speak to myself which is not often nice.

While some things may be embellished, simplified, or exaggerated for the comic medium, there is always a truth to them for that snapshot of time.
