In a previous post, we discussed TG comics and stories, and as of today it is not only one of the most popular posts here at Jessica Who?, but also one of the most discussed. I realize now that this article didn’t cover another aspect of that world, TG Captions.
These captioned images can be found in many different places on the internet and can range from G to X rated. So what is the big fuss over these things and why are they so popular?
What Are TG Captions?
Transgender (TG) captions are solitary images with some kind of relevant “caption” underneath. The caption is usually catchy in some way, calling to attention some kind of transformation or transitioning and can include narration, dialogue or some combination of the two.
Many times the picture is of a biological woman and the caption reveals the TG nature of the situation. Other times the picture is of a man who either wants or is transitioning.
TG Captions & TG Comics – What’s the Difference?
In many (if not all) ways, captioned images and comics are similar, save for the one striking distinction — a caption is a singular image whereas a comic is a collection of images. Captions may have a slight edge in popularity due to their quick-bite nature.
These captioned images can be consumed quickly and in large amounts and may be easier to create as evidenced by the sheer volume of TG Captions on the web. Like comics, they offer entertainment as an escape from reality and perhaps illustrate a certain fantasy situation.
TG Captioned Image Websites, Blogs & Community?
There are a great number of blogs, websites and forums that incorporate these captioned images into their content. Many website authors solely dedicated their domains to these TG pictures. In addition, there are communities of people on the internet interested in the creation and consumption of said content.
Starting today, I will begin incorporating my own TG captions into this website, though I’m not sure what the frequency will be. One thing is clear, though — I will be putting my own personal comedic spin on them.
I have been influenced by magazines and other websites that feature an image with an attached request that asks readers to submit their own captions, so this may also appear here. Perhaps even one day I can arrange some sort of captioning contest.
My First TG Captions
Although Juan, Mario, Hector, Alberto, Jaime & Franco were happy with their transitions into womanhood, they were aware that the infamous ritual of slapping bottoms during baseball games would achieve a whole new level popularity.
Poindexter was elated to have finally acquired his first pair of panties, even if they were about three sizes too small.
What is your opinion of TG Captions? Do you enjoy them or do you avoid them like the plague? Are their certain styles that you prefer? How often do you think I should post my own brand of funny TG captions?
