would I have made friends with you if I were shallow enough to hate someone just for being gay
I don’t care what anyone’s sexuality is; it’s really not my business
what I hate is when people make it my business
that’s what I hate
and you and Neeks, personally, have been very good about it; I really have no complaints
that was a general expression of hatred
because you’re (unfortunately) not the only one who posts about it
so if you want to consider that an apology, feel free; you invited yourself to be ~offended~ in the first place
I think you’re misunderstanding me again. Like I said previously, I don’t care if you filter LGBTQ posts. I don’t care what reasons you have for doing so. I don’t think less of you for not wanting to read blog posts that pertain to a label/issue/community you don’t identify with. I’m not asking you to take anything out of your blocklist or read posts where I mention that I’m not straight. I don’t even want your validation that it’s OK for me to be gay and talk about gay things!
All I’m asking for is a bit of respect. I don’t insult your identity, please do not insult mine. It does not make me feel good. I don’t go around looking for things to get offended by. I don’t have control over what other people say (nor am I asking for it) and whether it hurts me or not. The only thing I can do is let my friends know (as politely and clearly as I can) when they say something that hurts my feelings, just as I would want them to let me know if I said something that offended them. If you don’t feel that way that’s fine, but I’m not going to accept an apology that isn’t sincere.
I’m tired of hearing about it, so I blacklisted it
same reason I blacklisted homestuck

I guess I should be clearer, I don’t really care what you block. I’m all for the “if you don’t like it, block it or look away” approach to the internet.
However, I take offense when I see you describe LGBTQ posts as “queershit” as I’m not really sure how to interpret that other than as an attack on my personal identity. I’m not going to ask you to read about things I post that involve “queershit,” but I don’t appreciate getting a label like that from someone who I consider a friend (whether you meant it seriously or in jest). That’s all!
Or know someone great who is and does, I would appreciate hearing from you. Just a short bio on your work, and a link, if you have one, would be lovely.
It’s for something cool, but I don’t want to give away too much yet, while we are still in the very early stages. No one will be solicited or anything like that, no lists are being made up for any reason, just trying to get a good sense of who is making comics that is lgbtq. Webcomics, mini-comics, whatever, it’s all good.
(Note, if you can’t reply, please try reblogging, rather than private messaging, I don’t want to lose track of anyone so I’m hoping to keep all the responses in one place).
My girlfriend Neka and I do a webcomic together called Gran Grimoire. We’ve been working on it for about 3 years but it just launched in November.
Neeks and I will be sending out holiday cards this year to anyone who wants one!
Please head over to my LJ and leave a comment with your address (it’ll be screened for ya) or email me at email@example.com instead. ♥
Let me know if you would like my current address as well and I’ll send it to you!*
If you don’t want to give me your address, that’s cool! I’ll post a digital file of the card cover closer to Xmas on my deviantART and here on tumblr so nobody has to miss out~
If you’ve ever drawn fanart of a Gran Grimoire character for me (or if I’ve commissioned them from you), it’s going on the website. YOU CAN’T STOP ME
Ok, if you see something up there (on Friday) and you want me to pull it down (because it’s old or you hate me or something) just let me know. ♥ The fact that I even have stuff to put on the Fan page at all is amazing. ; 3;
About halfway through drawing this, I realized what I had created was effectively a Bingo Card, but perhaps a slightly more emotive one. So I’ll explain a bit of what’s behind it.
I first got into comics through feminist criticism of comics. I’m a feminist. And I love comics. The two things for me are inseparable, and I make no apologies for it. Both are a part of who I am. I’m also a fan of superheroes and superhero comics.
When it comes to discussions about women in comics, sexism in superhero comics, and so forth, I’m always reading, sometimes linking, and commenting a bit here and there. If you pay attention for a while as a female (and possibly feminist) comics reader, and/or superhero fan, you start to hear the same things over and over again. It becomes predictable and repetitive pretty quickly.
Below I’ve expanded on what I’m talking about. It’s lengthy, so it’s behind a text cut.
