I've been wanting to make a comic with a hijabi girl for a while now, this comic has a lot of my experience being an ex-hijabi madrasah student (a full-time islamic school) who is pan-ace and 25 now hahaha. whew.
Anyways, I've also been thinking a while about making a trans character, I have been a bit scared to write a trans character because I don't want to accidentally trivialise or romanticise anything they usually have to go through. This comic is mostly a callout for cis people to learn better, a callout to my younger self as well, who was ignorant and not transphobic, but mostly just stupid.
I am not trans, and I just want to say that if ever I accidentally offended anyone, please tell me. I tried my best to create as real a character and story as I can, but again, I may be biased based on my own experiences.
That being said, I hope you will enjoy this comic because I really had fun making this ^^
