Welcome back to GQutie! This week, we have a comic some of you may be familiar with. GQutie is, in addition to a webcomic, my thesis project for college. At my school, our first semester was spent developing a pitch for our thesis project, and an example of finished work was part of that pitch. This was that comic.

Be sure to check in next Tuesday for another comic!

Hey everyone! Don’t forget that the comic is officially live and updating!

HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO LEARN THIS LESSON FOR YOU DAMNIT

"The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything."

THAT’S THE PRICE YOU PAY FOR OWNING EVERYTHING

(via queerfabulousmermaid)

this is a super important explanation to think about whenever you feel like telling someone that something isn’t racist because you don’t hate x person.

I probably reblogged in the past, but here it is again in that case.

it’s annoying because skinny girls never ride for thick or fat girls EVER, never reblog pictures of them or mention shit bout body positivity and uplifting the spirits of thick and fat girls like I never see y’all advocating for curves and extra fat on the thighs or hips or anything but when Nicki goes “Fuck skinny bitches” y’all are suddenly activists for self-image and body positivity? get gone you fakes and liars. Fuck all y’all

just bc someone has low self esteem or has depression doesnt mean theyre not fucking disgusting and manipulative and i keep having to learn this lesson over and over

If someone uses their mental illnesses as an excuse to hurt you without apologizing you get the fuck out of there. My abuser would use it as an excuse and make me feel guilty for my hurt feelings because it wasn’t his fault he was cruel to me.

An ethics meeting for Lush.

The new person hired alongside me followed me around at lunch and within ten minutes busted out this gem in a conspiratorial tone: “All the gay people I’ve ever met have either been craaazy chill or…really…flamboyant. You know-it’s the same thing with black people.”

Also, I pointed out that they had spelled Colombia wrong on one of the info sheets, and then had to listen someone correct me and inform me that she knows for a fact that it’s spelled with a U because that’s how the signage had been printed and a Colombian couple had come in and thanked her/Lush for having spelled it right.

Guess who the point was conceded to.

A white guy who preaches peace/love/good gender politics but is an abusive asshole to the people he is close to and does not uphold those values in his personal life.
