So Just when I was complaining I never have anything to write about…

Thanks to @dantheshive, the writer and artist of El Goonish Shive I now have something to write about.

First a really brief explanation of a key point. Tedd is a male who through the use of a alien transformation gun spends a lot of time as a girl for various reasons.

So, that brings me to what I wanted to write about. If you read the archives (which seriously, I recommend), you’d think Tedd would be familiar with the idea of Transgender, right?

Well, the June 30th, 2014 comic suggests that he doesn’t and I have to say my own reaction to Tedd’s response in the next to last panel perfectly matches that of Grace (who is Tedd’s girlfriend) in the last panel. The fact that Tedd wouldn’t know about it literally never crossed my mind in all the time I’ve been following the comic.

For some reason I’d always assumed that with his “hobbies” involving being transformed regularly that at some point his dad might have discussed it with him. Seriously, read the archives and tell me his dad doesn’t strike you as the type who would have talked to him about it at some point.

I have to say with this comic the current story line definitely just got a bit more interesting for me 🙂
