stay tuned for depression and dysphoria folks
There's another storyline after this one ends in a few strips, do we want to cram straight through that one too, or take a break for some gag strips?
also, I'm reading this for the first time alongside you all, this is gettin weird
I never had to go through having horrible people as parents like she did, but this part of the strip seriously just broke me. I think I could actually feel my heart breaking.
I didn't either, but I know people who have, it's awful and messed up
trying to make sure to keep it to stuff that wasn't in the last thread
oh huh, now that you mention it I do see it
and that is all the gag strips I have that weren't in the last thread. I guess it's on to the next chapter we go.
Next story! This one is my favorite story arc, and I think it'll be my last for tonight. I'll put together an archive of everything I have and post it here tomorrow.
Thank you so much for this, Neph.
I'm really glad I got to experience these for the first time tonight. I haven't had a good cry like this in a long time...
you might not want to read too much farther, the tears are just gonna get worse :#
i don't know if i can read the last panel of this.
tighten your sphincters and hold on to your crotches, this is gonna get bad
my posting fingers are worn out, and I need sleep, but this was fun and I'll get back to this thread soon with an archive :)
not too often you find a trans person who is
A. a decent writer and comedian
B. has artistic talent
C. isn't too depressed to update regularly
It could happen again, but until then we have transgirldiaries
>tfw tried to damage ovaries to stop puberty by running full force into things and hitting self in the abdomen with aluminum bat
>tfw internal hemorrhaging and ruptured intestines didn't kill you
They just want trans kids to kill themselves
n-no, they just want what's best for the chillun! you dirty tranny swine!
Ok I lied, couldn't fall asleep cause I stayed up too late already. Bring on the coffee. But on the plus side I got mediafire working, here's the dl link for anyone who's really anxious to get it. http://www.mediafire.com/download/7ywyk1tgo9mrc9x/transgirldiaries.tar
I think I have about 95% of her stuff in there, I wish I could get it all but waybackmachine simply didn't cache those pages. Unfortunately I don't have any of the "Evepuff and the Time-Traveling Asshole" story arc, if anyone has that or has the google-fu to find it that'd be great. Nothing is really sorted, but there are some extra goodies from her gallery section.
Oh, one more thing, what would be the best way of turning a bunch of .gif's into .png's?
dunno. afaik evelyn is her real first name, but her last name is probably fake, evelyn poor or poorhouse is her moniker in the comics. idk how or even if she died, one person in the last thread referenced a tweet from brianna wu that mentioned an "evelyn" and her suicide, someone else said she's doing fine and well, who knows. All I know is that tgd is down and I won't stand for that
Found this searching for more tgd strips, it's a really interesting demo of the diff. between old and young transitioners, complete with an appearance by the author of tgd! http://www.susans.org/forums/index.php/topic,119408.0.html
I don't think there's too much difference between younger and older quite yet. We have the internet and acceptance... I have a feeling I might not have started to have dysphoria as soon if I wasn't made self aware about my gender
It happens, just very very rarely. This comic is not a literal diary, more figurative.
she does have some talent, its just the comic style of the last few is more consistent with the earlier stuff and easier to draw etc
when you do, post it here, the more trans comics the better
The ironic part is that it's the older people that get offended while the young people who are more likely to have tumblr accounts don't mind.
I see transgirldiaries as just an edgier version of transe-generation. The latter is explicitly drawn to make us laugh at ourselves so that maybe, just maybe we can stop moping. In that sense it does "make light of our pain"
Alright, everything is collated and changed to .png's, just waiting on the upload. There was a looooot more stuff than I thought originally.
Janice Raymond was a very popular second wave radical feminist well known for her hatred of trans people
Here we go, finished archive of transgirldiaries. Just in time, thread will stop bumping soon. Again, if anyone can find me the "Evepuff and the Time Traveling Asshole" arc I'd love them forever!
no, it was a longer series, at least a few comics long, in sorta the same vein as this story arc that I didn't post. I would have posted this one too but it has missing sections
I should mention that if you downloaded the earlier archive, you'll want to redownload this one, there are quite a few strips I found that aren't in the first archive.
All we know is that some twitter account mentioned that a person named Evelyn killed herself. An anon from the last thread who claimed to know the author said that she didn't kill herself at all, so the twitter account may be referring to a different Evelyn.
I'm just going to assume that the author is alive until more conclusive evidence appear.
The Evelyn that Brianna Wu was referring to killed herself in 2010ish, so it definitely wasn't the author of transgirldiaries given that she was still occasionally posting comics in 2014.
I saw sex ed videos back in elementary school. They made me suicidal. I ended up spending most of the second half of elementary school seeing various therapists at the school's request. They all thought I just needed more interaction with my male peers and activities to keep my occupied.
In my teens I saw another therapist and explained how I felt, but he said I didn't want to be trans and that he had a better way to make me happy, which involved me having sex with girls and taking supplements to boost my testosterone.
I wish I would have been brave enough to cut my balls off before puberty. I'll always regret not doing it.
Just three of them.
The forums was where I discovered that I was trans. Cool as fuck community where most people where young and no one was an elitist or a retard. I'm lucky I didn't have to go through Laura's or /lgbt/ as my first impression.
>he had a better way to make me happy, which involved me having sex with girls and taking supplements to boost my testosterone.
Why are psychiatrists allowed to actively harm their patients?
afaik they also make a deal out of the fact that transsexuals are binary. Which means they are "practically cis"
