A Comic About Gender by RainbowBruises A Comic About Gender by RainbowBruises
I wrote this comic to represent a happy side of gender differences.
It doesn't matter what genitals you have,
it doesn't matter what gender you identify with (if any at all),
what matters is just you as a person!
Gender should not be able to solely define one person.


Some of you may have seen this on tumblr under my url ChotPot!

Also, please try not to flame or fight in the comments,
or I will have them disabled!
Thank you!

Things that exist: Female Male Straight Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender
Things that don't exist: otherkin,genderfluid,non binary,pansexual,demisexual and a million more genders and sexualities
Stop being brainwashed by tumblr and stop making up unnecessary genders and sexualities because that's fucking retarded, if you're pansexual or demisexual then technically you're bisexual, you like men and women right? and yes, there is two fucking genders if there was ever a third the correct name for it would be ''mental illness'' please have some sense.

Hm, okay, look. I respect your opinion, but here is where you're wrong. It's likely you don't know how being pansexual or demisexual or polysexual feels like. There ARE other genders. There are people who don't feel like girls, and don't feel like boys either. There are people who feel like both, or some who feel like none. Here's the thing: these sexualities and genders are REAL and FACTUAL. You need to stop labelling people! Let people be who they really are.

I understand ''pansexuals'' are attracted to whomever they like because it's mainly just about the person not the gender and it doesn't matter what's in your pants but that's the same as being bisexual. ''demisexuals'' want to get to know you before falling inlove but isn't that the same with anyone? lol obviously you're not gonna fall in love with a stranger just like that, you need to know the person so you can have some sort of emotional bond.
In the end all of these just sound like preferences.

And how can you feel like both genders? is it because you like to play with the girls toys and the boys toys at target? People decide they want to be in the middle because of gender stereotypes. What other reason is there? 
The problem here is that you shouldn't decide what ''gender'' you want to be, it's not a pick n' mix. There are people out there who suffer from things such as gender dysphoria and these people happen to be real actual transgenders and then we have these tumblrtards coming along with their made up special-snowflake genders. It's a complete disgrace to real transgender people and they are not being taken as seriously because of these idiots. I understand people want to be free and do whatever they want but you shouldn't go as far as mocking an illness.

Well, I think you're misunderstanding the meaning of demisexual. It means you can't be SEXUALLY attracted until you get to know someone.

I agree with you partly on the transgender dysphoria. We are all entitled to our opinions.

dubbyzzzx Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2016
but why does that make it a completely different sexuality? it has more to do with your personality than sexuality. You might be a person who can't be attracted to someone unless you get to know them but that doesn't define what gender you are attracted to.

Being Demisexual means you can't be sexually attracted to someone without a pre-existing relationship with them.  Basically, you could look like Brad Pitt, and any sexual advances would have no effect as I wouldn't have any pre-existing relationship.

I can think someone looks good, but I still wouldn't be sexually attracted to them right on the spot.

For example, some girls might say "he's so hot! I wanna have his babies" but I would never feel that with anyone I don't know.

It is similar to "abstinence" but it's more of a forced abstinence because of not being attracted to people that way.
Demisexual doesn't mean I can't fall in love,  that is romantic attraction, it just means that, even if I go on a few dates(Ex. 10+) with someone, there's no guarantee I will even feel attracted to them in a way that would allow for sex.  I would still love them, but it might not even be long enough for those kinds of feelings to develop.

Being Demisexual you have to take into consideration another factor in attraction... who someone is ROMANTICALLY attracted to.
Someone who is Demisexual, might only be romantically attracted to people of the opposite gender for example.

here's an example of the difference
"I don't want to go on a date with you because you're a guy"(not romantically attracted to males) is different from "I don't want to have sex with you because you're a guy"(not sexually attracted to males)

of course this means someone might have sex with people of one gender, but would never even consider going on dates with people of that gender as well.

Hm. That makes sense... I'm sure there's a reason behind that. Perhaps you can find a demisexual who can explain it to you, as I am not one.

As for pansexuals, you understand that they're completely gender blind, which means that it doesn't matter to them if women or men are transgender, or consider themselves androgynous or any other gender. People have the freedom to identify themselves however they want.

a genetical disfunction is one thing such as REAL transgendered people, who, as I said somewhere else under this picture - are VERY rare. you can even tell to some extend that they have such a disfunction by their outer appearance, but saying "gender is a mental construct" is complete and utter bullshit. you are born either male or female, everything besides that is unnormal, a genetical disfunction, a disability, or in the case of the autor of this picture and the people, agreeing with him: delusional madness, based on idiotic tumblr-SJW-crap...

You, good sir are mistaken. There are in fact many genders other than male and female, I would like to ask you politely to tell me why you think this way.

abdamit Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2016
why I think that?... it is common sense among sane humans! humans are either male or female, it's biology! there are exceptions (RARE exceptions!) when a genetic disfunction occures which forems a trans (human male with vagina or female with penis) but that is VERY rare and those people are nothing "normal", just like homosexuality is not "normal". it is acceptable and completely fine, but it is obviously not how things shoud be under normal circumstances.

and especially it is not like you people nowdays act with your "today I want to be a girl, tomorrow I'll be a boy and then I feel like being a god-knows-what". what you tumblr-browsing tennagers have, is a craving for attention. you are either male or female, hetero or homosexual. nothing else! you people have lost your minds that is all, you should visit a therapist, psychologists or something, instead of searching for approval on the fucking internet!

and for the love of god stop with your wannabe-polite attitude... it's cringey as hell.

Biologically there are two genders, but some people actually feel like they want to be something else. They're not all just looking for attention, some people actually feel like being different genders depending on how they feel. So you obviously dont understand this feeling.

Oh, and sorry for being nice?

abdamit Featured By Owner Edited Jan 11, 2017
it's a mental problem these people have then. the only thing that matters in real life is the physical sex. male and female, humans have only two genders, there is no "but I feel different". you can feel what ever you like but don't expect others to treat you different for what you would LIKE to be. if I would LIKE to be asian or black, that does not change the fact that I am caucasian. I can think of my self what ever the hell I like, but the mere wish/feeling/imagination does not change reality!

in this day and age it seems that "muh feelings" is more impotant than actual facts and basic logic. your feelings do. not. matter.

and there is a difference between "being nice" and obviously acting wannabe-high-class, as if you are writing a letter to a politician or something... it's cringey

Hi, does "do not repost" include not printing and putting up in public spaces? I wanted to give a copy to my daughter's preschool teacher, and maybe share it with folks I work with at Outside In, a clinic for homeless people especially youth. Please let me know in comments or send me a message here at deviantart.
