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!
