Could also be, as said below in other comments, just a very extreme nervous reacion or tic. Heck, I pick at ans chew my fingernails with a similar almost destructive intensity sometimes too.
I just think it’s also evocative of dysphoric feelings, in a loose subconcious way.

I have seen a number of people doing this with Sulla when it comes to autism. As a person who grew up with severe trauma and had conditions (like autism) falsely/inaccurately projected upon me (often by my abusers) I find it offensive, but it is also inaccurate and potentially a harmful thing to do.

It’s been a while since I’ve read through the earlier chapters of this comic, but I seem to remember him vehemently rejecting Brendan’s insinuation that Sulla being trans was because of him. I know that he denied that he was gay, too, but he didn’t really deny it with the same strength? I might have mis-scanned that scene, though. Might be time for an archive binge again, heh.

It’s honestly a little surprising to me that some other readers didn’t catch that when we met Sulla (I kinda always assumed they were both trans and just different people w/ the same basic personality). Not that I think anyone is dumb or not paying attention, it just seemed so obvious to me by this point.

It does, however, make sense that Brendan didn’t notice that. He didn’t have our advantage of getting to peak in on Al’s dreams and thoughts, also he probably just wasn’t aware of/looking for it.

Some urgent stuff is trying to get through to him. Makes the scene even more intense to me. Is black profile picture Mystery Person going to make their entrance?
