Comic for Monday, Mar 24, 2003

 Grace is good at video games, yo.

This is clearly in reference to Super Smash Bros, which I suppose makes this commentary somewhat timely. Transgender Princess is clearly in reference to Zelda turning into Sheik (I still say Sheik is anatomically male), and the electric two-tailed squirrel is clearly in reference to Pikachu. I believe the two tails is in reference to a Jacob's Ladder and NOT Tails from Sonic The Hedgehog, though I suppose it could have been both. It was definitely in reference to a Jacob's Ladder, however.

Back when I created this comic, I had only ever heard of "transgender" in reference to transformation. Nonetheless, I think it holds up. Either the princess remains a constant gender (i.e. identifies as a man or woman regardless of whether anatomically male or female), or her gender identity changes with the transformation. Either way, it seems appropriate, though some may prefer "Trans Princess".
