I’ll admit, I didn’t expect to find a message like this in a Deadpool comic.
See, this is an example of how to do LGBTQ and Trans related humour WELL
Because the punchline here isn’t ‘Hahahaha, this girl is really a guy!’
The punchline isn’t treating Trans people like a joke or like freaks to be laughed at
The punchline is Deadpool being mistaken for being Transphobic and getting his ass kicked for it
The punchline is about how transphobia is wrong and Deadpool has made an ass out of himself.
The punchline is a straight cis person making themselves look bad through their terrible choice of words. It portrays transphobia as being bad
Also I love the ‘Don’t judge by appearances’ bit that the guy who looks like the stereotypical ‘skinhead’ type who you’d expect to be one of the Red Skull’s henchmen in the world of Marvel comics is actually an awesome dude who stands up for someone he thinks is in danger of being attacked for being Trans
I just really like this scene okay <3
