Panel one shows a man wearing a suit and sitting behind a desk, talking to a woman who looks unhappy about what he’s saying. The man is a banker.
BANKER: I’m sorry, sir… er, ma’am… but our bank’s name change policy doesn’t recognize court orders.
The same woman is talking on a cell phone, looking annoyed. We can hear a voice coming from the cell phone.
VOICE: We can’t cover your gall bladder surgery because your insurance excludes transgender healthcare.
The same woman is at an open door with a sign that says “building manager,” holding a sheet that says “rentals” in her hand. A man with a beard, presumably the building manager, stands inside the doorway talking to her.
MANAGER: I don’t think you’d be a good fit for our building…
A woman in businesswear stands behind the woman, who we now learn is named “Brenda.” Brenda is walking out, angry, carrying a cardboard box of in the classic style of someone who’s just been fired.
BUSINESSWOMAN: I’m sorry, Bob – I mean, “Brenda” – but the other workers just aren’t comfortable working with you.
Brenda stands at a counter, talking to a man behind the counter. There’s a “help wanted” sign visible taped to the counter. The man looks like he’s raised his voice angrily.
BRENDA: But the sign in the window says…
MAN: There’s no job opening here!
Panel 6, the final panel.
A man with curly hair raises his hand in the air, grinning, while Brenda glowers.
MAN: Oooh, “pronoun preferences.” Trans people always want special treatment!
