It needed to be said, since I’m tired of every conversation about our comic (on other sites) devolving into discussion of my crotch giblets.
Of course, that comes with the huge caveat that I am personally an open book, but that’s only when asked directly and within context (i.e., the subject of my crotch has been brought up, by us). Otherwise, it’s needlessly invasive, objectifying, and rarely comes from a place of genuine understanding. And that’s my liberal take on the subject. Imagine a trans* person who is as private as any other person or isn’t “out” or experiences dysphoria with their bodies.
This is a lesson lots of people need to learn: don’t be a Katie Couric.
