Excuse me for my ignorance, I am from middle east, can I ask, what is the meaning of "Trans", "FtM', and "cis"?

Trans - short for Transgender. As in, someone who, while being defined as male or female at birth, identifies as something different from what they were defined as. For example, someone who was born in a female body, but who feels he is male, would be transgender.

FtM - Essentially the example I gave above. Someone who transitions (either socially, hormonally, surgically, or any combination thereof) from female to male. There is also MtF, which is the opposite.

Cis - not trans. Basically, someone who identifies with the gender they were assigned at birth.

Yes. I care more for trans people then cis people. Plus it's not like she's some sort of hero when she draws about trans people. There are many other artists who actually care about every thought on trans people. There are trans artists who draw about trans people. Its not like humon is the LAAst ArtIST D: to ever drraw about traaans folks~ I mean really. She cares more for her homosexual / bisexual cis men comic characters then others. And look i'm not here to talk crap about an artists on their own page, i actually like her art. But my voice is a trans voice and i have the right to state my opinions on trans subjects. I DON'T SPEAK FOR ALL TRANS PEOPLE.

You have every right to voice your opinion. You do not have the right to give orders.

Not all trans people have problems with Humon's work, either. If your issues are so great that you cannot see Humon's work without being offended, I recommend you stop looking at her work (it is, after all, entirely optional)  as the world is an uncomfortable place without going out of your way to see things which make you so upset that you attempt to issue fatwas to people over the internet.

A) You're assuming I'm cis.

B) You're assuming I'm fighting. Or upset. Or, well, something.

Rude? Yeah, kind of. Which is only part of why I spoke up. Beyond rudeness, though, your approach is inefficient. If you find fault with someone's portrayal, demanding that they stop and do research is less helpful than a calm, rational, and reasoned attempt to help them understand  where their portrayal is flawed, unless you have reason to believe they are specifically being trolls. I personally don't have a problem with Humon's portrayal; it's a particular take, yes, but she'd be hard-pressed to cover every single type of trans story out there. (As you yourself noted, there are as many stories as there are trans individuals out there. Possibly  more.)

However, as YOU seem to have particular problems with Humon's portrayal, and wish to be an activist in this light on behalf of trans people individually and collectively, it would be far more helpful for you to lay out a calm, reasoned, and DETAILED explanation of what you would like to see and why. Demanding people do what you want? Not helpful, for getting what you want or for other people in the group in question, be they trans, people of color, genderqueer, or of other oppressed, marginalized, or generally minority nature.

You're under no obligation to take this advice into account; it doesn't affect my life particularly one way or the other. You will however find that while trolls won't care about reasoned arguments, intelligent people will - it might not always change their opinions of your position, but it will generally make them more willing to consider what else you have to say. But issuing your viewpoints without background information and as commands will almost always see the mental response of the person it's aimed at roundfiled. Your choice; I have nothing further to say on the matter.
