Sooo... anybody willing to explain this one to me? I'm clearly missing something in the punchline. How does being a helicopter shapeshifter offend people?

There are assholes on the internet who make fun of transgender people with the phrase "I sexually identify as an attack helicopter". (As though that's comparable to being transgender).

Oooooh. Wow. That is monumentally stupid. I kinda regret asking.

At least the strip's funny now? I guess?

It was a bit of stretch for a joke, probably why I sat on the idea for so long. Other versions had him actually saying unknowingly "I identify as a attack helicopter", because of his powers, at a PR event and then not understanding the outrage he gets afterwards. One problem was trying to develop the whole overly elaborate set up and joke into one comic

I thought it worked pretty well.

I also enjoyed the subtle gags on the signs in the background of the last panel, like "Hueyman Identifies as Hitler".
