And the cake was pink

And the cake was pink


Inspired by a mix of stories different trans-boys have told me.

Nothing is more important than supportive parents. Mind you, it's probably ten times easier for Niels because he never knew Magnus as a girl, so he didn't have to mentally change his idea of Magnus from "My daughter" to "My son".

I imagine Niels will ask how it fits, and Magnus would polity say it's a little big, but assure him it's okay. And then a few days later Magnus would receive one or two extra in smaller sizes, because Niels would be damned if it wasn't always perfect.

Toddlers are the most annoying creatures in the universe, sp to me, Magnus is by far the most adorable character here!

(Okay, 14 y/o are annoying tok. Bit nothong beats toddlers)

Speaking as a trans guy, this comic really hit home. I always remember all those presents and gifts over the years. So many gifts that I looked down into the package while wearing that same expression, feeling like an ass and not wanting to be ungrateful, but knowing that I couldn't wear or enjoy whatever it was. So many well meant, wasted gifts. This cartoon was both upsetting and beautiful. Thank you for creating Magnus, and thank you for this issue. I really love Niels now, even after spending this whole day offended and revolted with him for shooting 250. (I was up until 2 this morning binge-reading your comics and catching up... because I have no good sense, but I couldn't stop myself.

Here the Australian High Court today (2nd April 2014) said that if you want it is ok not to gender identify on your birth-certificate one more good move :)

@Nedalin it probably would, tho i don't think that's why niels bought him a binder 2 sizes bigger. More likely because he wasn't sure of the size.

Etikette Question: Would it be rude to assure him, that he will grow into it (the binder)?
