So as some of you know I am transgender. Over the years more LGB characters have been introduced, but very few transgender characters have been. Much like with other types of progression with the LGBT community, the silent T remains in comics. As the rest of the community moves forward, we sort of stay in the background, ignored. For the LGB characters we have characters such as Batwoman, Wiccan, Hulkling, Northstar, Karma, Karolina Dean, The new Alan Scott, Lightspeed, Anole, Striker, Mystique, Destiny, Phyla Vell, Moondragon, Daken( possibly I'm still a little confused on that), and more. Meanwhile I can only think of two transgender characters in comics Xavin( which is still debatable, but I like to consider her one and the trans woman character in Sandman( I can't recall her name). I'm sure there are a few others but I can't think of them, and probably not many more. The point is although I'm glad the LGB is starting to get more exposure )which I am proud of since I also identify as lesbian) it seems that the transgender community is still getting shoved to the side. I personally think a great comic to explore these ideas would be the X-men comics, seeing how it has always been about the disenfranchised and dealing with you are and your body. I'm currently working on a x-men fan character that is a young trans girl, since I would love to see somebody that represents me and I can relate too. But trans guys should also get representation in comics as well, I just wouldn't be as good at writing them because I lack a direct experience with it. Any who this is just a mini rant, suggestion that I would like to hear your thoughts on if you want to.
