I'VE FINALLY MOVED OUT OF MY COLLEGE DORM! SO now I get to make comics about my Bad Roommate!

I believe this was the moment I began to start hating her. We were watching Orange is the New Black. For those who haven't seen it, there is a character named Sophia! She's a transgender woman who is in prison for credit fraud. Her character is played by Lavern Cox! She is also a transgender woman. Now, in the show, we see the character before her transition. The actor who played pre-hormone Sophia happened to be the twin brother of Lavern Cox. This confused my roommates, because they didn't piece together that the actors were suppose to be the same person. I explained to them what was happening and also what transgender means (since they also didn't know what it meant). Everyone understood and accepted my explanation...except Bad Roommate. She used wrong pronouns and was generally disrespectful. Giving her the benefit of the doubt, I explained what transgender means again and who Lavern Cox was. Again, she responded by calling Laverne Cox and her character men "pretending" to be women. It got to the point where I started getting super annoyed. I explained again, but it seemed she was just messing with me, smirking and pretending not to understand? I got angry at her when she called her an "it". What I did was aggressively said "no" and didn't speak to her the entire day. (For her sake, I didn't want to rage at her since we would be living together for almost a year). She seemed to be confused by my reaction, but not sorry.
The lesson here is DO NOT CALL PEOPLE "IT"! People are not "it". They are people. I don't care if you don't know someones gender or get confused or whatever bullshit you make up to be an shit. No one is ever an It, ever. IT'S RUDE AND I WILL THINK LESS OF YOU.

P.S. My hair got longer in college. I'll take care of that soon. Also sorry for the sloppy comic! I'm doing other projects, but I wanted to update, so I rushed.

I hate how some people react to transgender people, we were at one of our family friends parties (shes a transgender woman) and a woman came up to my mums old bf and started talking about this family friends then they referred to her as "he, it, that, whatever". Everyone got angry at this woman and she left early in embarassmemt. I couldn't beliveve some people would be so cruel and unempathetic.

So frustrating That is one of the most frustrating I've ever had to do, trying to explain what a transgender person is and the person is not understanding on purpose. As a transgender woman myself I've found myself many times trying to explain this, not because I came out to them, just because the subject rolls into the conversation sometimes with some friends.

I don't have any horror stories tho, when the person does that to me I just stop the conversation and then I stop talking to them for a while.

Sadly I live in a really ignorant country, anything that is not a heterosexual male or female gets labeled as homosexual, no matter what you identify as hey just call you by whatever you look like.

This is like the time where I was dating a transwoman at the time and a friend found out about it. He react by saying that I was in a straight relationship, he couldn't understand how we had sex, also used some slurs. And at that point I was ready to punch him in the face. Of course I decided to not talk to him about her anymore, though not she and I aren't dating anymore.

Happened to me once too. I was in school lunch, and friend (who was well aware of me being genderqueer) was talking to me about Sexpo, and that he saw Buck Angel there. He referred Buck as "woman looking like a man", and I corrected him without thinking much about it yet. At that point some friend of us asked who we were talking about. I said we were talking about Buck Angel, porn actor who is transman, but the then friend almost yelled that "No, it was a woman looking like man!" I haven't spoke a word to him after that moment six years ago.

I hate when people act like this. I'm Transgender, but i'm Non-binary. That's even worse. People gripe about how there are "Only 2 genders and blahblahblah" And WHEN YOU LIVE IN A STATE FULL OF CHRISTIAN HETEROSEXUAL CIS PALE PEOPLE, IT WILL DESTROY YOU INSIDE T^T
