Fact: Trans girls ARE real girls. Trans boys ARE real boys. The sex we were assigned at birth is not our "real sex". We didn't "used to be" the sex we were assigned at birth. Our given name is not our "real name". We are exactly who and what we say we are.

Mind you, if anyone's gotten this far into the comic and hasn't realized this yet, I'd be surprised. Still, it's important so I wanted to make sure it was said.

I'm totally guilty of what Rain did right there. It's so hard to tell someone you're trans when they're one of the few people that makes you hop up and down in joy because you pass with them, and not just until they hear the pitch of your voice :P No matter how they think of you or how supportive they are, it tends to introduce pronoun fumbles for a while, among other things, so you go from day made! every time you see them to day ruined! half the time.

Also trying to imagine just how confused somebody would have to be to be happily reading along and have the 'transgendered people are precisely who they say they are!!!' speech catch them off guard :P

You know, it's funny--despite the controversy in the comments about two comics ago, Emily is acting better about this than almost all of the others after they found out. Maria and Rudy were all like "DO YOU STILL PEE STANDING UP!?!?!" and Gavin actually tried to write her off completely. Emily's being very communicative and supportive, which is something Rain hasn't really had much of from her friends before now.

These last pages have been really heartwarming. I'm so glad Emily is being this supportive of Rain - more than any of her friends have probably been. It really shows her as a mature and reliable girl - I know she'll be a great mother :)

@leetpwn: Rain plushies would be awesome. Can we find a way to make this happen?

@jazgemo213: Catholic transgirl here. The way I always explain it is that God did put us in these pre-transition bodies for a reason, that reason being to transition. If we weren't meant to transition, we wouldn't feel the overwhelming need to.

As for the page(s): After all of the crap that Rain has been through, it's great to see things going well for her. But I still can't shake the feeling that there's some trouble on the way.

You must be a carpenter, because you've hit the nail on the head, speaking as a fellow trans* Christian.

Personally, I find myself envying Emily's baby. I wish my mom understood this stuff as well as she does.

Emily! That was so nice to encourage Rain like you did! I wish I had the same supports too, as it is hard for me to go this alone.

Emily continues to be awesome ^_^

And I'm glad they got that misunderstanding about Rain coming out to her last of all out of the way.

I really hope the whole group keeps supporting Emily through pregnancy and childhood.
