The last one in the series 🙂
I loved it 🙂
Personally I like the “queer” label best; it’s enough to signify “I don’t fall within the ‘conventional’ cis-gendered heterosexual label”, while being vague enough to get you trapped into a tight box that you can’t get out of.
…And of course there’s a NOT missing here. While being vague enough NOT to get you trapped into a tight box. Gah.
I totally agree – I love queer because of that very reason, it means I don’t have to out my gender and sexuality complicatedness if I don’t want to.
Aww. Sounds a lot like me, actually.
Huh, our tastes run about the same. XD
I used to identify as bisexual but that never really felt right because the bi implies 2 and for me it was too binary. Then I heard the term pansexual and it fit me perfectly. I’ve recently found out that many people who identify as bisexual don’t see it as a binary identity and don’t only like cis people. But I still prefer the label pansexual because the label itself makes people think and realize that there are more than just two genders. 🙂
Yeh, bi never really fitted for me for those very reasons, I’m really glad that bi is opening up to mean more too – that’s a big plus
Yeah, me too. It appears that it might have meant more all along, but most people aren’t aware of it. I went to a Bi/Pan/Fluid institute at Creating Change this year and we had a long discussion about labels and identities and meanings. A lot of people under 25 or so identify as pansexual for the same reasons I do. But many people older than that identify as bisexual but their definition of the identity is the same as the one I use for pansexual. It really made me happy that so many bi-activism leaders aren’t as binary as I once thought, and that they’re very trans-friendly. The whole institute helped me realize that I can see my identity as falling under the “B” in LGBT, even if I don’t strictly identify as bisexual. The “B” can be more of an umbrella term. We started using the term Bi* to mean about the same thing that trans* means (that there are multiple identities under that one umbrella). It was really pretty cool.
Cool – I would love to see the B being an umbrella term. Looking forward to seeking out more conversations about this!
oh my gosh you guys are adorable. can you post a real life pic of the two of you????
oh, oh – there was a picture in one of the older posts – in real life they’re 10 times more adorable then in the comic form <3
err, “THAN” of course: the power of Sam&Joe’s combined adorableness temporary deprived me of all grammar skills…
ha! We ain’t that adorable… you should see us in the morning before coffee – it’s not pretty.
Same. Exact. Feelings.
Thanks for doing what you do; you keep me doing art when I feel the most alone in a crowded room.
By the way… If you get any free time I recently started my own queer-comic-blog on wordpress… It’s not very professional looking but I’m getting better. 🙂
Check it out if you want 🙂
Oh cool! I’m liking your stuff 😀
You guys make me squee so hard, I shared a link to this storyline on this blog post https://enagoski.wordpress.com/2012/02/15/need-help-finding-a-story-about/ because this is the pinnacle of fluid gender/sexuality and love on the internet I think.
Oh yay! Thanks!
