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.

mfw rereading this page [Lola's bug eyes after Sugar says “i don’t want you to hate me”]

and their narrowed (suspicious? "is sugar catching on? will i actually hate her or is she just nervous?") top eyes when encouraging her to talk more
man, i love rereading drop-out after big plot points are revealed to catch foreshadowing

Have you ever had to, like, pick your nose or something equally disgusting, but someone else is with you, so you can't? Only you REALLY have to, so you're having an internal debate about whether or not to do it, which is really more of a debate on how to best disguise what you're doing so the other person doesn't notice? That about sums up how Lola is acting throughout this scene. I'd say they're relatively unconcerned with what Sugar is actually saying to them.
