I have a love for using graphic art to transmit complex concepts and ideas, so thought we needed a thread that presented gender and identity issues using comics and illustration. Please post your favorites!

Here is one I like from Rasenth that was in Huffington Post

(If someone can figure out how to embed the image that would be cool. My minimal skills are stumped)

I've only read the first issue, but I get the sense that Image Comics's Sex Criminals deals with a lot of these issues. It's also pretty funny.

Cool idea for a thread! This site has some funny (and informative) ones. And Oh Joy Sex Toy (very much NSFW) is largely reviews of sex toys in comics form, but it also touches on a variety of topics around gender, sexuality and identity, so I'm saying it qualifies anyway!

Ahahaha oh man, that first OJST comic is great. "If AdultFriendFinder is the Ferengi, then Fetlife is the Federation. Make that Feteration." Laughing

I think Trans Girl Next Door is great. I just find her charming and would love to get a coffee with her

As far as sex webcomics that portray people with a plurality of different kinds of sexuality, paraphilia, and gender expression, I'm particularly fond of Oglaf. (Granted, sometimes, the sexualities are things like "I can only get aroused when an owl is watching me," but you'll see a bunch of existing-in-the-real-world stuff as well.) It's surreal and frequently hilarious.

Oglaf is so gooood. One of my favorites for slightly surreal and sometimes-sexy humor.

Nowadays, when someone asks me where I'm from I say: "Take a guess". The answers are interesting to hear.

I've yet to have these questions become tiring for me because I haven't heard enough of them I suppose.

I get the impression that many people do not know the difference between nationality and ethnicity. And not enough people realize that it's patronizing to say "Your English is good!".

Oh lord that question is so bad. One of my colleagues is maybe 5th or 6th generation Chinese American (came over to build railroad) and she still gets it while I (mom born in Poland, raised in Turkey and father's parents born in Poland) never do. And people have no idea that it sounds the way it does.

Oh, I don't know if you've already figured it out reboot, but you can use [img][/img] tags for individual images or gifs.
