I stopped reading here. It might be a clever pun, but it’s still a cruel “joke” — and the fact that you went out of your way to defend it makes me wholly uninterested in the rest of your opinions about what’s wrong with Twitter.
I should note here that Alters’ colorist, Tamra Bonvillain, is a trans woman and was ostensibly consulted regarding the script. While my perception is that her input was likely ignored, it’s inaccurate for me to characterize this as a wholly cis-created project. I apologize for misrepresenting the book and erasing Bonvillain’s work.
Constructive criticism dept.: This strikes me as a missed chance to explore how Pride as a white woman can carve out a positive space for pot smoking women, while WOC that came before her in the industry didn’t get that same chance.
I’d like to see this opinion elucidated upon a bit with evidence. The concept of “passing” is a thorny and oft-debated one among trans people; I’m perhaps biased, but I’m disinclined to believe that trans activists like myself — who are personally invested in cis society’s unconscious reading of gender — “constantly overlook” this concept.
It should be noted, kind reader, that I’m being rather generous when I say “well served.” Transmasculine people on Grindr are treated much the same way transfeminine folks are on lesbian apps like Her: with equal parts “but you’re not like, a real boy/girl” and deafening silence.
