Since the writer of this comic has made her announcement recently, this is definitely on topic and you are welcome to talk about it in here as well, but the place where more general discussion about all things transgender is supposed to happen would be here.
(You have to have a certain amount of posts to get access to this forum, it just eludes me currently how many.)

This is just a friendly pointer, in case you didn't know about it, NOT a request to stop talking about Elli and her journey here.
Have a lovely day. :)
The winds of change are blowing, and if I may say so myself: it's about bloody time!

Thirdly, is it horrible to admit that it's not a case of flicking a switch inside, and that it takes a bit of time to process? Does that make me a bad person or a transphobe?
Based on 2nd, I'd guess not! I'm speaking from an outside perspective, but I doubt that it is a flick of the switch for most trans folk either. If it takes you time to get someone's pronouns right, and re-adjust how you think of them, as long as you're making the effort, you'll get there. It's when people obstinately go out of their way to use old names and pronouns that they fall into the bad person camp...

There's another one where she said that it's going to take time for everyone to adjust. She's been at it every day this year and is still adjusting. It doesn't make you a bad person. It's a big change. It takes time. And most of us were raised in a transphobic culture. Having inherited some transphobic bias doesn't make you a bad person. Seeing that bias, questioning it, and working to move past it makes you a better person.

The older twitter account is no longer available.
The new twitter account is here : https://twitter.com/EllipsisGoblins

May we please have a new twitter account thread, and lock/archive the previous? Pretty please? With cream and sprinkles and little smoking/sparking remnants of the Axe of Prissan?

Whoops.
Changed the link in post one, but otherwise I agree.
This old thread has survived far beyond its intentional use..
It should also be unstickied.

Digging this back up, since this is the place to relay important information for those who don't read Twitter.

Today is Elli's birthday! :confetti: :confetti: :confetti:

However, today also marks the day that, as she's said a few times on Twitter, it is no longer acceptable to her to use her old "dead names." Tarol, Hunt, and Thunt are all in the past. She's Elli Stephens now, and will be using that name both personally and professionally. The old names are part of a chapter of her life that's closed now. Please respect that.

I guess any time soon would thus be ideal for editing the titles/descriptions of subfora in the Goblins Discussion section?
