Wow, there’s no larger version of this comic to link to. I feel so naked!
This is another slightly older comic that I’m posting as I work on revisions to Orcs vs Feminism. But it was inspired by a rather tumultuous event within the queer community where I live, one that continued to divide people as time went on.
Ignorance can be many things. For some ignorance is bliss. For others ignorance is what drove friends and family to self harm, or worse. There is much suffering in the world that could be prevented with education, and yet? even scholarly folk manage to spew ignorance on many occasions.
The important thing to remember is, no matter how offensive or hurtful certain people can sound, it has nothing to do with you. It’s their problem. Everyone is entitled to their emotions, but at the end of the day if someone wants to remain ignorant? then leave them behind. Never let ignorant people determine how your day goes.
