She Hulk By John Byrne
My very favorite version of She-Hulk.
In light of recent troubles, I’ll be doing this again! Since the time of that post, I’m closing in on about 1/5th of what I need for rent and bills. So.

Jay Smooth continues to be my hero.
Allan G. Johnson is the author of the excellent book The Gender Knot: Unraveling Our Patriarchal Legacy. I highly recommend it.
No federal law offers protection to transgender people from discrimination in the workplace; the population sees double the usual rate of unemployment, and ninety per cent of transgender individuals report harassment, mistreatment, or discrimination at work. The great majority of states do not assure access to public accommodations, including hospitals, for transgender people. In 2011, the largest-ever study of transgender Americans showed that nineteen per cent of transgender or gender-nonconforming people had been denied health care. Similar rates have been refused a home or apartment because of their gender identity. Twenty-eight per cent of those in the study reported being subject to harassment in medical settings, and a full forty-one per cent reported attempting suicide (this compared to 1.6 per cent in the general population).
It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.
