Yup! To add on to this, Allies should be wary when using terms, but much of the time they can help reclaim the slur. This does not extend to white people and the n-word. Dear white people, please do not use the n-word. No. Bad.
There are SO MANY reasons why I object to being called perfect, the least of which being that it’s just a fact that nobody is perfect, especially me.
I’m very selective about how I present myself on the internet, since it’s there forever and so many of you read and are influenced by what I post. I don’t lie about who I am, I just choose to present my good sides, and I force myself to step away from the computer when I’m having a bad day and I know I’ll respond to something in a way I wish I wouldn’t have later.
That said, if more people could filter themselves as successfully as I do, the world would indeed suck way less. Being nice on the internet is an exercise in patience sometimes, and I’ve found that said patience carries over into real life the more I practice it. More people should try the whole “being nice instead” thing.

"Gay" and "retarded" are not insults, but they are commonly used as such and this is highly offensive to queer people and mentally handicapped people. Same goes for using words like "queer" and "fag" and "cripple". "Retarded" isn’t even an accurate description of any kind of mental disability, and shouldn’t be applied to people in general.
FALSE why do you guys keep saying„„ things like this„„„,
How do I,
Get through one night without you?
If I had to live without you,
What kind of life would that be?
[ the artist should really learn to stop trying to make comics after getting home from work ]
Wow, it could at least give me a little warning, jeez!!
1) The character is me, as is the character in most of my comics. My comics are pretty much all autobiographical. I identify as female.
2) If you want to see the character as male or female or anywhere in between or around or above said gender binary, great!! Follow your dreams. In all art, interpretation is ultimately up to the viewer and, subsequently, the gender of the character is whatever you want it to be.
I’m back home and finally reunited with my
tablet wife and my laptop husband and my own bed and it’s fucking beautiful
