The reply in the fourth panel more or less comes from a scene in The Bacchae by Euripides, where king Pentheus has taken Dionysos as a prisoner (and we all know what happened to Pentheus. First he lost his mind, and then he lost his head). Parts of it come from the translation by Ian Johnston, and other parts from my Swedish translation.

So is Dionysos a transgender woman or a crossdressing man or just a very pretty man or something else?

That's a good question and something I should have decided from the very beginning. I think Dionysos either identifies as female, or neither male nor female, but that they haven't really talked much about it to the other gods yet.

Women and men want him. I remember pentheus, his own mother tore off his head.

And demeter no look happy. Watch it buddy, if you upset Demeter, you might go the way of Erysichthon.
