Enough is said on the page, so I'll keep things simple down here. Agree or disagree? Do you think this will sink in with Drew? And do you think there's still a chance it could work between him and Ky?

If Drew has any remote chance left with Ky, he's going to have to make one hell of an apology to them.

@LittleLynn84:

The depth of Ky's hurt at the breakup would argue that they wants it to work. If Drew can get it together and try to make another, better start ... well, someone around this comic seems to be a bit of an optimist ...

All humans want respect and kindness. Is it so much to ask for? The jerk in the back will say "pussies", but we can ignore him or beat his ass.

@TranshumanAr: ...why pussies how is that in anyway offensive O.o cause I see that word as just something you say around friends or kids your age without harm

@Berrielover:
Not really this word, but the fact that many people say things like "get thicker skin", or "this is reality". We live in such an apathetic world that saying hopeful things enrages jerks that are used to grimdarkness.

I agree with Gavin here. Hell, half the time, I don't know how to talk to or about my non-CIS friends and the terminology can be baffling for any straight guy. But I still think of of the gay, lesbian, trans, genderfluid, pan, bi, and queer (and any others I may have missed) as people.
I think this lesson may sink into Drew's brain. I certainly sounds like he doesn't want to repeat the errors of his ways.
But I don't know if Ky and Drew should be a thing. Drew needs a Hell of a lot of work before he could ever consider dating Ky again. He's welcome to try, though, once he's sufficiently matured. And here's hoping he finds that special someone, someday. He and Ky both.

I think TRANSHUMANAR and ANOLDWOLFNAMEDSTEVE have pretty well hit the nail. People just want to be treated with respect and kindness. The few LGBTQ+ folks I've known well enough to be able to call friends ... well, that seems to be what they want. It doesn't seem that they want to be "different" ... they just want to be them and be accepted the way they are. If they're trans and want to be called "he" or "she" ... then that's how I'll see them. If their fluid, well, I don't actually know anyone who is gender-fluid right now, but I expect I'd have to ask what their pronouns would be. But ... I would ask in as respectful way as I possibly could.

@Barn0wl: Hi! I'm Genderfluid! LOL. I get what you mean though and I hope a lot of people understand this in the coming years. You don't have to understand everything, you just gotta at least accept us for who we are.

Simple

reply

I think the very fact that he is even caring about a "next" person or even thinking upon this shows growth, I for one feel the simple thing for him to do is to go back and try again, with this in mind that he has a lot to account for, and a lot to learn, but if he opens his mind and his heart Ky might be willing to help him, be he has to be true to them and to himself and stop worrying over what others think and feel and focus and Ky and himself.

I agree with this

reply

I mean, it makes sense. You don't need to know everything to respect them. I'm Genderfluid myself, and I still have a hard time trying to figure out about other people. Heck, I have a hard time figuring out myself!

A frying pan to the head

reply

I think that Gavin may have hit Drew over the head with the proverbial frying pan...it may be just enough to get through Drew's thick skull.

I dont know about Ky and Drew getting back together as a couple. However, with this new found knowledge Drew may be able to be friends with Ky, if he does a LOT of groveling. Starting out with friendship may be the first step to dating again..but only time will tell.

I'm sorry - i have a problem with using a plural pronoun to refer to a single person...

I absolutely agree and understand that we need a gender-neutral pronoun, but using the wrong number jars my ear.

And in the meantime, while the English-speaking population is futzing around about a gender-neutral singular pronoun for specific people, people who don't fit either "he" or "she" will just have to suffer?

(BTW, English speakers already have a gender-neutral singular pronoun for indefinite antecedents: "they." That usage has been around for a very long time.)

Options

reply

@Fairportfan:
Here are some other options that people do choose.
HE/SHE HIM/HER HIS/HER HIS/HERS HIMSELF/HERSELF
They them their theirs themself
yo yos yos yos yosself
ze zim zir zis zieself
sie sie hir hirs hirself
ey em eir eirs eirself
ve ver vis vers verself
tey ter tem ters terself
e em eir eirs emself

I have heard people use some of these and once you use the pronoun of their choice a few times you get use to using whatever with that person. In fact there are a few books out there that are written with a genderqueer person using some of these pronouns. By the end of the book, you are use to the other pronouns.
