I like the fact that you had Sugar say what she said - I'm sure it was something a lot of people needed to hear.

oh, sugar :( i know this scene might be hard to write, but coming from another genderqueer person, i definitely understand how difficult it is to diffuse these internalized ideas of gender we have. i get where she's coming from on this page.

also, the expressions here are so wonderful? i love lola's face in panel 2. and the sugars in the fourth row... i don't know how to describe it, i can see it animated in my head, she looks really nice there. as always i really love her perma emo eyeliner.

also, the dillon i found along I-15 is in montana. if that's correct they're still about 11-12 hours away from the grand canyon. i guess that's about right considering that unexpected detour they had... at the same time, i feel like we're really close, it's kind of giving me anxiety, but the good(?) kind.

oh my gosh. this page really hurt, honestly. as a genderqueer person, being perceived as an ugly woman has always been this terrible fear, because one of the worst things a woman can be is ugly. and it's very easy to hear affirming things about being enby and understand what they mean w/o really internalizing them or applying them to yourself. and the things sugar is saying and the complex way she feels about herself is so rarely ever depicted in anything. basically, thank you for writing this.

aha... ouch
seriously tho, as someone who's non-binary and in the closet i really feel this - like i get that bodies aren't inherently gendered but it's easy to not apply this to myself, especially when other people make it clear how they see me. and i appreciate seeing this kinda experience depicted here, even if it's a little close to home haha

on a more positive note, happy drop-out-iversary! this comic has become one of the high points of my week :-)

oh wow, a lot of the stuff people are saying about being nb on this page really hits home. i have bad dysphoria about being called a girl all the time, and even though i know bodies aren't (or more accurately, shouldn't) be gendered, sometimes i find myself wishing i had a more "androgynous" body so people didn't automatically assume i was a girl.
