Who are the trans comics bloggers, if you don't mind my asking? I'm relatively new to talking about comics online, mostly because so many nerd spaces are so toxic. It took forever to come across a space as relatively progressive as Comics Alliance, so it still feels like I'm groping around in the dark without a flashlight, occasionally grabbing something I wish I hadn't.
So, probably the best way to find trans comics bloggers on Tumblr is to pay attention to discussions about trans issues in comics. For example, just by looking at the reblogs on the previous exchange, you’ll find me, rambleonamazon and secondstringheroine all offering our perspectives on your question.
Probably the most prominent trans comics blogger on Tumblr is ami-angelwings, who owns and runs eschergirls.
Also Mey, who blogs about comics on Autostraddle, has a Tumblr at meyllenpage. I don’t think she usually posts much about comics, since she has Autostraddle for that, but she specifically encourages questions on her Tumblr, and I’m sure she wouldn’t mind if they’re about comics.
I know of other trans comics folks on Tumblr, but I don’t know who’s okay being identified in this way. Obviously, reblogs with additional suggestions are more than welcome.
Voodoo does not incorporate snakes (only as very specific ingredients, never LIVING -- that's an entirely different religion that belongs to the white folks), and the symbols used in that last panel are actually HooDoo and they're a mixed mush of symbols that will accomplish absolutely NOTHING for a person who actually knows what the fuck they're on about. This is some seriously un-researched, dumb dumb dumb cultural appropriation by white people, yet again.
Yeah, I don’t really care about respecting religions in terms of their religiousness. (Spoiler: Real religious and mystical symbols accomplish just as much nothing as made up symbols.) But at the same time, I wish white people would stop stealing aspects of POC culture and then treating them like just another fictional context for stories about white people.
Fellow white people: this is yet another way in which we are terrible. Can we do better?
