    Beano was way better than the Dandy, although I was a fan of Minnie the Minx who was very progressive for her time.
    She had some spunk for sure.

    I'm really saddened and disappointed at just how transphobic the world is. Like any article that touches on the subject is just full of fucking awful comments, it's like the daily 2 minutes hate aimed at trans folk.

    What's worse is that I see people I know who are normally fairly open minded joining in on the trans bashing. It's mental. The right wing press has chosen their villain and you can see those views trickling down into the populace.

    I'm not sure why it gets to me so much as I don't think I'm trans or anything, but it really makes me despair.

    Calling him Fatty or the Beano itself? My son loves it, he got a 6 month sub at Christmas and has just used birthday cash to get a full year sub.

    The Beano itself.

    Buster and Whizzer and Chips are no longer around. Is The Dandy still running?

    I read my nephews Beano last time we saw them and apart from some changes in art style that obviously betrayed and ruined my childhood it was still good stuff.

    Calamity James was always my guy.

    I used to get Buster but I really wanted my older brothers Eagle.

    Doomlord, Manix, The 13th Floor... all great stuff.

    Oink was also great, though shortlived.

    The whole Graham Linehan thing has passed me by, clearly. What did he actually do? Last I knew he did Motherland and that charlie brooker thing about games.

    He went all in on TERFing. He's pretty much ruined his name, his marriage, and career by picking it as the hill he must die on

    Rebellion have an imprint called the Treasury of British Comics that is rescuing and republishing loads of those kinds of titles at the moment. Really well produced books with proper care for the material.

    I used to get dumped at my grans a lot and my uncle had dozens of annuals for all of them.

    Beano, dandy, whizzer and chips, topper, beezer, hotspur, nutty and every other comic named after a character in biggles.

    Nutty was where bananaman first appeared, I think.

    I forgot how mental eurogamer was. Folk talking about the Beano and trannies on the same page.

    Can I ask a genuine question: is it seen as transphobic to state that a woman has a vagina and a man a penis? Iím so far behind in all of this that Iíd love a bit of clarity. I find the whole issue seems to move so fast that itís tough to keep up with it!

    I know this is a non-sequitur, based on your current discussion of the Beano... Hopefully itís not too jarring to receive a reply.

    Presuming that isn't a troll, yes, as it conflates sex and gender, especially with the nuance of pre and post op.

    Okay. So is this whole thing just about not inextricably linking sexual organs to being considered a male or female?

    There's obviously lots of differing opinions, nuances and talking points, but in broad strokes, yeah, it's that biology shouldn't be a definition of gender.

    I'm not googling. I know I'll 100% just get opinion pieces. I just want the content of Linehan's statements or tweets or whatever.

    I mean, he's been permanently banned from twitter so that should tell you something.
