If you are virtually ANY category of non-hetero and/or non-cis, and not had Rain’s inner monologue (or something very similar) at some point in your life, consider yourself fortunate. I’m serious. Today, I’m very proud and open about who I am, but I think Rain’s monologue is actually quite toned down from the self-loathing I used to put myself through when I was about her age. It’s weird to think back on now…
On a lighter note, this page was almost called “Rainbow Sprinkles”. I worried it might be inappropriate for the mostly serious nature of this particular page though.

You know, I'm sure even heteros have a similar inner monologue. Everyone is so insecure about themselves when they're young and they just want to fit in. It's not 'til you're older that you realize it's not worth all the stress to try and be "normal." Besides, the most successful people are those who follow their own paths and think outside the box.
Well said, and very true.
So much negativeness lately D:
aaaand i cried a little
oh man, I know that feeling. My boyfriend happens to be into girly guys and when I am in a funk I always get all "I bet he just likes me because of that."
Im glad deep down I know better but still.
Certainly Holly and Devon have run into at least a little friction due to the race factor in their relationship. Could Rain possibly be a little oblivious on the topic of race?
Awww poor Rain...
I've known similar internal monologues and they're no fun, and there's no quicker way to bring down your mood than to listen to the mean voice in your head. :/
I send Rain all of my hugs...
PS Rudy is the cutest. Rainbow sprinkles make (almost) anything a bit better. ^w^
Totally going through that now. Including Rain telling herself not to get herself down...
...oh, and add "crawling back into bed at midday" to that too. :/
While on the one hand I love seeing interracial couples being presented as just "normal" people, this page does make me cringe a bit. Just like other people are blind to the insecurities Rain has to deal with every day about her gender/sexuality/being accepted, she's being equally blind to other people.
I know she's upset and oversimplifying and seeing herself as the "freak" (her word, not mine!) compared to everyone else who has a perfect life ... but I really wish for the sake of the story there could've been a little wake-up call from one of the other characters.
