To whom it may concern, Hi! I’m Eden and this is my comic “The Aces Hi!”
It’s about my experience being asexual and will include lots of lovely folks under the rainbow! It’s also filled with talkative hearts, puns, and of course, lots of pride! Updates are always on Friday.
As for this new addition, I was wandering through the internet when I came upon a post that was along the lines of this. This was my reaction, since it’s hard enough trying to figure out feelings in general.
“All I wanted was a normal life but now the ghost of the girl I liked in high school is haunting me as a shower!” Life is a strange thing. No one truly understands it and not everyone is truly grateful for it. But, no matter how hard yours is, it is a gift you should never squander or throw away. Life is precious, so, please … hold on to it.
Features: male lead with schizophrenia/depression & identifies as bisexual, female lead with depression/anxiety [upcoming characters: secondary latino male character with autism & identifies as aroace, secondary female character with prosthetic legs]
Hey, I'm looking for a comic that explains really well why aces belong in the lgbt community. I know there were flags, and the ace person might have been tugging on them? I forget. But the heteros said the normal things they do when we come out as ace, and the lgbt folks said the same things they normally say when we come out as ace. I don't know how helpful this is, but…?
I can’t find or think of it, sorry. Can anyone help them out?
To clarify: the words for shame (häpeä) and second-hand embarrassment (myötähäpeä) are heavily connected in my native language, which is what sparked this conversation.
I have a rather strained relationship with my mother, to put it simply. I’m almost 30 and she still uses shame tactics to try and control me just like when I was small. I often heard things like “I can’t bring you anywhere because you embarrass us” and “you should be ashamed” while growing up, and if I protested, I was told how difficult I was. I still hear that from her regularly, and she always masks it as just worry to make me look like the bad guy. But: concern or worry doesn’t justify abuse, ever, not in any situation.
