A Piggy’s Tale; Issues 1-4

Fangirls, I’ve got to be honest with you. I did not want to give this book a second glance. We came across it at Baltimore Comic Con and I was not super into the art style. But next to the table a small crowd was gathering, and the divider had been moved because there was a sweet little dog just hanging out, getting pets. So I stopped and asked if I could join in with the love for the pup, and his owner said I could, and started to tell me about the comic at the table.

Nerds Gotta Eat: Gertrude’s Unicorn Balls

As we all know, Gertrude (the hate wielding heroine of I Hate Fairyland) hates Fairyland and everything in it. One of the things that (though I have yet to see them in the comic) I’m sure is in the area, are unicorns.

When we think about sexually transmitted infections or diseases, HPV, or Human Papillomavirus, seems to be overlooked much too often. That has to change for a laundry list of reasons, friends.

On: Six Years of Gay

2000px-Gay_flag.svgTo be honest, I don’t remember the exact day, but I know it was the spring time, a bit before my 15th birthday. I’ve never really kept track, or celebrated it on an anniversary of sorts. It was 6 years ago now that fully came out as a gay woman. I don’t like to make any big show about being gay, because I think that makes it seem like I’m separate in some way, or attention seeking. However, it’s a part of me, and there’s no doubt that coming out is a process that a lot people don’t experience. It was a marker in my life that honestly seems so long ago now. It’s felt like a lifetime between then and now. But really, I am so young still. It was the beginning of a life, my life, living openly about who I was. And it’s very weird to think about it now.
