You shouldn’t have to carry the demand to be both “approachable” and in charge of preventing your own assault. This comic says it all.
Have you ever had to deal with the dilemma of checking “male” or “female?” Some of us just can’t be confined to those boxes. And you shouldn’t have to be! Here’s a comic that captures the frustration of this moment. Let the hero of this comic be a hero for all of us whose true identities can’t be defined by these small boxes. You deserve to feel free to be you.
You know the ironic racist joke? The one that’s supposed to be edgy, acknowledging oppressive systems and stereotypes and going on to insult those harmed by them anyway? Here’s a much-needed response – a comic that dares to tell the truth about this type of joke, and obliterates the myth that those of us who don’t laugh at racist jokes don’t have a sense of humor.
We all need to pause and read this comic before using the dictionary definition of racism in an argument. While dictionaries are supposedly authorities on how we speak, they reflect the opinions of some people while excluding many more. Check out this comic to find out about the biased history of the dictionary, and learn a more useful approach to language.
“Don’t read the comments.” You’ve gotten the warning, but we’ve all had the experience of reading a supportive article, only to scroll down to comments that try to tear you down. This comic captures that experience perfectly. It’s a reminder of what we all could use – either support to avoid reading the comments or support to take care of ourselves when we do.
Too often, conversations around what healthy relationships look like completely ignore relationships that fall outside of the heterosexual, monogamous framework that our society so desperately wants us to cling to. But there are all sorts of ways to have relationships – including within asexuality, polyamory, and kink – and they all can be healthy and satisfying.
We’re constantly learning more about ourselves. And as we do, many of us begin to realize that the identities we used to align with don’t have the same resonance anymore. So our identity shifts. And that’s perfectly normal! But sometimes it can feel like we’re doing something by beginning to identify differently. Check out this cartoon for a different perspective!
