This is cute as fuck and describes pretty accurately how I feel too.
This comic is included Anything that Loves edited by Zan Christensen.
aside from this comic being really cute and honest, it also points out this really huge glaring problem in the gay community in relation to trans-men.
in my experience with a lot of gay men, they have this extremely purist view when it comes to what being a “real man” is, which is bad enough when you have different gay subcultures (bears, gymrats, etc) who have different specific definitions of what a “real man” is.
however for the most part, many gay men seem to agree upon a point of leaving trans-men not only out of their gender, but out of their sexuality as well and I have a real fucking problem with that.
i’m pretty open about things that relate to my sexuality, and i myself identify more or less as a homosexual, but i’ve found the worst part in the gay community is dealing with this bullshit. eventually i found that i at least have the luxury of telling guys to fuck off if i don’t meet their standards, but i know that’s a lot harder for folk when they seem to have the entire population of homosexuals more or less invalidating not only their gender, but their orientation as well.
with all of that said, i just ask this. if you happen to be a cisgender homosexual, like myself, don’t tell other gay men that they aren’t actually gay if they’re dating or have had relations with a trans-man because that’s a load of fucking bullshit.
more important, under any circumstance do not tell a trans-man they’re not a man or that they aren’t allowed to like other men who are homosexual, be they cis or trans.
that’s all i really wanted to say.
This was too cute and well said not to share.
enjoy this 8 page comic i drew in 1 day and inked in 2.
no one who knows me in real life would ever believe all the fluffy romantic comics I draw;;;
alternate title is: I HAVE STRONG OPINIONS ON DWARF BEARDS
ALWAYS REBLOG HUNAM/DORF ROMANCE COMICS
Thanks to makersvision for bringing this to my attention <3
When anybody comes out and tells you they’re asexual, please believe them. Being told that you just haven’t found the right person, or that things will change in a few years is just as bad as telling someone who’s gay that’s it’s only a phase.
Asexuality is just as real as homosexuality. It’s just as real as heterosexuality. It’s real just like being bi, or pan. Asexuality is not abstinence. It’s a lack of sexual attraction or desire.
You can still have a healthy, romantic, relationship with a person without sex being involved.
I am a proud asexual and everything in this comic has been said to me. Other asexuals have had it worse than me. They’ve been told worse things, been asked worse questions and some think there’s something wrong with them because they don’t want to have sex. This lovely lady did a post on A standing for Asexual and not Ally, and it describes what I mean by worse excruciatingly well.
So please, believe a person when they tell you their asexual, because it’s very real and not something to be ignored.
These are the first ten comics in a zero-effort, wrote-itself story about my D&D group. Somehow the response I got to this was better than the response I get to 90% of the things I put a lot of effort into. Obviously, this is the precursor to the style you see in the previous comic.
If you like these, you will be pleased to know that I am collaborating with a very talented artist to bring you more of this style of comic. Don’t worry, the effortless shitty lineart will still be featured, but the fantasy sequences will be stellar.
more of this please
For my non-tabletop followers; this is exactly how this shit goes.
I don’t have chronic pain but this artwork is so nice to look at *^*
Just because we’re not writhing on the floor doesn’t mean we’re not hurting. We’ve just gotten really good at hiding it and functioning with it, otherwise we’d literally starve in our beds.
This hits a bit too close to home.
Thank you honey ;o; <3
I’m walking more now, per doctor’s orders, so this is very much a reality. I worry sometimes that I don’t complain enough, silly as that sounds. I feel like people won’t consider my pain real since I don’t often vocalize it, and I don’t have the chair with me all the time to remind them. I don’t know how to handle this.
Did I reblog this already?
Weeeeell here we are again.
