OMG "realization"... that was so awesome when it hit me, too... I thought: well, you have the choice!! you don't have to risk your happiness, your life, your love for something that only looks like a way-too-heavy burden to you!

and I feel the same as you about being pregnant... but it's incredible how people generally can't understand that...

and the touching panel about the gifts... it sometimes takes so long to figure out that one doesn't have to do/feel/be anything, follow the unsaid rules of the traditional society... I think these gifts (whatever they are for a person) are really important

Still loving these. You and your mom seem to have an awesome relationship, which is really cool to read about. I love reading about other folks' families, and the conversations they have about outlook, life choices, and identity. I'm not very close with my family (first gen Russian migrants, so very conservative and pretty right-wing) and am closeted about a whole heap of things, from sexuality down to parts of my employment history. I love my folks, but we have very different values, and I feel like telling them things I've managed to keep out of their knowledge for so long would only hurt them and my tenuous relationship with them, rather than persuade them to be more accepting people. So I really treasure other peoples' stories of being able to share and talk with their family. Rock on, I always look forward to these comics. =)

I'm very glad you are enjoying these comics! I do have a very good relationship with both of my parents, and I remind myself on a daily basis that that is quite a privilege. I feel extremely lucky that I don't really have to be closeted about any part of my identity. That being said... I have not asked my parents (or any of my extended family) to use my gender neutral pronouns. The reason I haven't asked yet is that I am nervous, I guess, that they won't take the pronouns seriously. They might say "Oh, we will try!" but then constantly forget. I don't want to have to feel constantly on my guard correcting people I love over and over. I know this isn't giving them the full benefit of the doubt, and I hope to work up the courage to ask for a pronoun change soon. Sometime in the next few month. Maybe they will be better at remembering than I fear! 

I hope you can subtlety influence your parents views on accepting different identities they might be uninformed about. I wish you luck in that. My great-grandparents immigrated from Russia- my grandmother on my dad's side was born to two Russian parents in Mexico, then later moved to the US. I knew my great-grandmother when I a child, but I was too young to ever talk with her about deep subjects such as gender or sexuality.
