Do not read the comments. I didn't want to read them, but my curiosity got the best of me so I read them anyway, so now I'm telling you: do NOT read the comments.

I am in a media hell where every media (not just anime/manga) dealing with trans women is either:
1. Something made in the 70s-90s that has straight trans women but is dated at best and actively transphobic at worst
2. Something made in the 21st century that is not transphobic, but is about wlw and therefore I don't relate to it a bit.

This genuinely upsets me, I got absolutely nothing I can relate to in broader media. I can read straight romance stuff with cis people I guess but there's always that nagging feeling at the back of my head that this doesn't line up well with my own experiences.

Wasn't there a short-page-count per chapter (4 to 5 pages) manga of a cute m-t-f MC that starts her journey because her neighbor/childhood friend is a boss at doing makeup and she decides that she likes it so much that she literally decides to transition/starts id'ing as a girl in class and realizes that she likes her childhood friend? I recall it because it's black and white but the eyes for the 2 MC's were colored. Don't recall if it was posted itt or the Shoujo/Josei/Romance thread.

I've heard (I don't read it) that the webcomic Questionable Content has a trans woman in a relationship with the (cishet male) MC and that it's handled pretty well.

Nothing else comes immediately to mind -- I tend to look for transbian stuff, because, well, I relate to it more -- but I'm sure I've seen at least one or two other things that fit the bill, I'll post them here if I remember them.

I still don't know how to take that, like if the titular girl (who I can't remember the name of offhand) is trans or doing it because s/he has a thing for his/her friend and assumes he's straight.

I dunno, coming out to your whole class about attending school girls uniform seems to be evidence to me indicating not being cis. But also being seen as desirable by someone who is straight could be read as gender euphoric too. I don't doubt that having someone she's interested in is a factor but I can't really read that character and think cis crossdresser.

i think if you want to read a character as trans theyre probably trans, especially in the face of evidence like that lol

I'm not saying people are wrong or shouldn't view it that was, just that was my takeaway.

Regardless, it's very cute. There's another really similar one too (even does the eye thing, which I'm sad that one stopped doing), as an aside.

It doesn't really deal with it exclusively per se, but the webcomic Questionable Content has a trans woman who's dating a dude and it treats her pretty well.
