People are butts about gender sometimes! So here is a comic talking about how it really isn’t a big deal!
When I was with James this week I wrote a little poem about gender
and decided to draw a comic for said poem.
Hope you guys enjoy!
Now if we could get this printed like some of those cardboard storybooks I remember from when I was a kid, we’d have a nifty little children’s book on our hands here!

Great Birdemic art by Jeff Victor
One of the critical lessons needed to become Master of the Romantic Thriller is to know that the greatest of all threats to deranged, rage-virus stricken birds is the simple coat hanger.
A common household item, its use both shocks and terrorizes the birds.
Hence, Birdemic: Shock and Terror.
Just because we’re in the future and all made out of space dust doesn’t mean everything is…
“For me, the best thing about Cyberpunk is that it taught me how to enjoy shopping malls, which used to terrify me. Now I just imagine the whole thing is two miles below the moon’s surface, and that half the people’s right-brains have been eaten by roboticized steel rats. And suddenly it’s interesting again.”

Wanderer above the Sea of Fog (Pixel)
Original painting by Caspar David Friedrich
Pixel Version by Christopher Ryzebol
I have a print of the original Friedrich work above my bed.
Maybe I should get a print of this pixelated version as well so that the original one has a gaming buddy.
The countries of the world, rearranged as a chicken.
The question is, how long does it have until it’s either fried or baked?
The planet is a big blue marble, and by golly we’re gonna have some adventures out there.
“These structures were commissioned by former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito in the 1960s and 70s to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place or where concentration camps stood. They were designed by different sculptors and architects, conveying powerful visual impact to show the confidence and strength of the Socialist Republic. In the 1980s, these monuments attracted millions of visitors per year, especially young pioneers for their ‘patriotic education.’ After the Republic dissolved in early 1990s, they were completely abandoned, and their symbolic meanings were forever lost. From 2006 to 2009, Kempenaers toured around the ex-Yugoslavia region with the help of a 1975 map of memorials, bringing before our eyes a series of melancholy yet striking images.”
My day has been made. I don’t need anything else. If anyone needs me I’ll be sitting here with my eyes pressed up against my monitor while a slideshow of these pictures plays.
The former Yugoslavia has been very nice to me in my travels, and they leave me with pictures of plenty of awesome monuments.
Given, what has become of the former Yugoslavia (which is to say, the wars and the continued attempts to stop Kosovo’s independence) is decidedly less awesome.
What with the fiscal problems Europe (and the world) is facing, new monuments to anything probably aren’t high on the policy agenda. But I’ll be interested to see what they look like, someday.

Raptors consider the keyboard to be the most critical part of the modern computer system, for they believe it contains the sum of all language.
Without language, you can not hope to coordinate a plan to stop them.
As a child, I was under the impression that this was precisely the sort of thing abandoned buildings were hiding from me.
I used to know someone who looked like this.
I mean, they didn’t have any sparkly blue butterflies that I was aware of, but, I imagine sparkly blue butterflies are quite shy and prone to making for mildly awkward explanations at dinner parties.
