Diary Comic XXXIX: Die Kinder

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.

What a totally relatable trans feel™! And who doesn’t love a good multilingual pun of a title? Jokes aside: it is easy to search for blame and to punish yourself for perceived failures, but we are constantly learning about who we are in life so strive to be kinder. To everyone. To yourself.

These comics are 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. As a result, the language is often 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.

    You joke that it’s not actually relatable but I actually disagree. This is painfully relatable and the art accompanying the words just leaves me speechless. I’ve only recently realised that my dysphoria and identity issues meant I’m trans, and since realising I’ve been both relieved like a weight is finally off my shoulders, and Fucking enraged. How the hell didn’t I notice sooner? Why did I shrug off every moment of “I don’t like me. I don’t like my body- I want to change it” as “oh well I’m a girl, girls are shown to not like their bodies so I guess that’s normal.” To go back and just… beat the shit out of myself and scream that there is an actual reason for this and to stop letting others tell me that it’s just a girl thing. Ahhhhhh.

    Amazing art Father- these diary entries always stun and amaze. Your skill is incredible and I’m happy to have you in my life.
