I’ve been working on a couple of changes to my Queer 101 comic for a Human Rights Commission resource. Here’s my new and improved version! Plus, here’s a link to the Human Rights Commission Resource
Every school should use this as a learning resource! Well done
Oh thanks SO Much!! I wish it was in every school too!!
I’m a member of the LGBTQ group at UConn Law School is putting together posters for Diversity Week at our school. Could we display your comic if we attribute it to you? It’s wonderful and a really useful guide for people seeking information on gender and sexuality.
Oooh for sure! Can you send me a photo of you doing it so I can feel all proud of myself?!?
Yes! Thank you so much. This explains so well. I’ll send the picture once it’s up!
Hey, this is pretty awesome! One quick note, though: the viewing of trans people as being “born a man” for trans women, or “born a woman” for trans men is a little problematic in that it subtly implies that they weren’t the correct gender at birth, rather than that they weren’t *assigned* the correct gender at birth. Of course, some people do associate with those “born a ” phrases, but it feels like this comic implies that ALL trans people identify that way, when it is only a portion.
Again, this is really great, and because it is so good, I wanted to point out this small point so that it might be able to be made even better.
YES! I totally agree! I saw a comment about that on reddit and I am just redoing the panel today – because F2M and that ‘born’ language is super problematic! I really like how this comic is a constant work in progress!
I think living, breathing art is definitely the best! Especially when it’s full of so much information!
Please do correct the error pointed by Natahlia on trans women and trans men.
We use ‘woman’ and ‘man’ to indicate gender not sex. Male, female can be used for indicating sex and gender (old practice).
Also all trans woman do not identify on the binary etc
Try and use this idea for trans women: “assigned male at birth”/ “misgendered at birth” by doctors/parents
idea2 : intersex people are best referred to as people with DSD (differences in sexual development).
See http://www.gires.org.uk for more detailed info
I recently did a rejig of this one and corrected that F2M etc stuff – ’cause totally agree that it’s problematic.
Was there a panel that implied that all trans women identify on the binary?? Just wanna make sure that I’m not implying that at all.
Oh yeh, good point about intersex and DSD – I different know people some who prefer intersex, and other who prefer DSD, so maybe I should add that in too – Cheers heaps!
This is awesome!!!! BTW a lot of Native Americans identify as two-spirit, which is really cool and could go in there with the fa’afa stuff. I identify as cis-with-complications because I have Turner Syndrome, which means I have one X chromosome instead of two. I am proud of that and the way it makes me a bit different, but other gals with Turner Syndrome don’t want to be seen as different at all, they’re like – I’m just woman please, don’t muddy the waters here. It helps for me that I am bi and in a relationship with a woman, so I am all ready not hung up on fitting into a straight paradigm. Again, love this comic!
a german website used a translation of your comic and it seems like they didn’t credit you. Did you know about this? This is a great resource, but it’s also art and you should know where it’s published.
Um, I opened the .pdf where you can read the comic and they did credit you at the end. Just thought you should still know that it’s published there.
Oooh yes, I gave them permission to use it! I had forgotten about it, ta!
My name is Janet Adesina and I am the president of the campus Gender and Sexual Diversity group at Frostburg State University. I’m a fan of your work and I think this comic is a wonderful way to educate. We’re having a QueerFest coming up and I was wondering if we could use your comic and attribute it to you?
Sure! Are you using it in a presentation or printing it out?
This should be taught in schools. I love it. Great work!
