    • OH MY GOSH you’re right! Love!

      I mean, uh….I totally knew about this already and it has not at all resulted in lots of ridiculous smiling and possibly some prancing.

    • YEAH! I think it’s awesome that they are offering a campership and wanted to thank them for doing that somehow. Plus their clothing is super rad and I really wanted to draw it.

  1. “little onion blossom” !! I love seeing cuties take care of each other
    Also I’m pretty sure Scout’s hat says buttz and it’s making me giggle

  2. When you read this during your period. #sovalidated

    Telling all of the Straddleverse your body’s monthly visitor is here #priceless

  3. This might be my favorite so far. Part IV was just…I felt like I was I there, like I was Scout watching it happen and needing to make it better so bad and…yeah. Awesome as always. Yay Saturday mornings!

  4. <3 Every Andy should have a Scout. "Your gender is not a personality flaw." So good! And the pronouns handout! Thank you for all of this. I look forward to reading all your comics!

  5. “Carlos” posted a queerphobic idiot comment on here earlier that got taken down, this one probably won’t be up for long either. What I’m wondering is, what’s someone like “Carlos” doing on a website like Autostraddle? Internalized queerphobia, perhaps?

  6. i’m totally lying on the ground bleedin’ from my vag rn but this comic made my heart sing

  7. ok so it’s been many moons since i first read this comic and off-handledly left a comment, but i wanted to let you know that this continutes to be

    a) the Real-est comic wrt gender i have ever read
    and b) incredibly relevant to my life i mean like this just happened to me AGAIN literally yesterday right down to the period, the dysphoria, the reactionary bar-hopping, and the subsequent misgendering

    so, yknow. thank you.
