How do you describe your gender?
I find it impossible to not describe my gender in terms of the binary, living and having grown up in a society that places so much emphasis on categorizing everyone in one of the only two options. Which is too bad because the binary is so damn wrong. It’s also hard not to talk about presentation and sex along with gender identity either.
Anyway, I’m not genderfluid, but there is a degree of fluidity, like it wobbles around a bit and shifts slowly over long periods of time. At this point of my life it’s more of a third gender, though outside of a few friends and tumblr, people online know me as a guy. And I’m ok with that. Actually I downright fucking like it, except I still wish there’s more trans awareness. IRL is another story and is where most of my issues with gender comes from, and it doesn’t help that I enjoy looking at girly shit like fancy clothes. My therapist says I give a kind of gender neutral feeling though, and that’s cool I guess. I tend to use general terms like “genderqueer”, “non-binary”, and “trans”.
I’m constantly questioning gender, but there are a few things that I’m certain of. One, I’ve always secretly wanted to be a beautiful boy, or perhaps someone who looks completely genderless when naked and could get away with presenting as anything. Two, I seriously think that some joke terms fit me, such as “my gender is anime” or “I am a space alien”. And three, while I grew up not knowing that a place outside of the binary is even possible, my world has since expanded and I have realized that nothing is ever set in stone. There is no going back.
But breasts ARE sexual organs? They release oxytocin when stimulated, that makes them sexual.
ive had to deal w this argument before ok listen here
boobs do the oxytocin thing when theyre stimulated yes, nipples are an erogenous zone. Men’s nipples do this too. Now read over those two sentences and let the double standard dawn on you okay? Think about it if both kinds of nips release oxytocin when you do the touch touch on them, why is only one kind of nip considered a sexual nip? sexism that’s why
it’s ridiculous and technically makes a dude’s nipples more inappropriate than a lady’s nipples because boy nipples serve virtually no other purpose than to be stimulated by temperature change or by sexual activity, while girl nipples serve the added purpose of oh you know, feeding babies no big deal
but nah man nah both can be aroused so both nips are sexual or no nips are so make up your mind
you know where else is an erogenous zone?? ears. Are you wearing an ear bra/?? Why the fuck arent you wearing your fucking ear bra you trash put on yoourfucking ear bra youre not allowed to show your fucking ears thats so inappropriate and its makinng me horny its distracting me from my school work youre not following the dresscode wear your fucking ear bra yo ufucking
OH SHIT I FORGOT ABOUT PRIDE [yes i live under a rock why do you ask]
Can you do a strip about how depression can mess up your memory? I can't remember anything from even like, a few weeks ago and back, everything is fuzzy and it makes me feel like I'm not a person because I don't know where I'm coming from and I can't remember my past so I don't even feel like I exist sometimes
This is a real thing, and research has recently shed some light on this. People who are depressed have greater difficulty in differentiating between similar experiences and events than not depressed people. But what’s interesting is that depressed people can still distinguish a new event from an old event if the events are not similar, so memory is not entirely impaired. However, the more similar they become, the greater the difficulty it becomes to distinguish between them. The idea is that depressed people fail to attend to and then remember the details, so that their memory becomes a giant blob and cannot remember separate events because the details are missing. This has physical evidence as depressed people do not grow new brain cells in the hippocampus of the brain, an area thought to be involved in memory.
I’m not sure how this can be worked into a strip as it’s a pretty complicated concept for four panels, but who knows.
(laughcry @ me trying to college)
Yeah, good luck trying to study when you are in the middle of a deep depressive spell. (From experience)
