What We’re Here For

This comic comes from one of my favorite comic artists online, www.robot-hugs.com. She has some hilarious and insightful posts about what it's like to be queer, a woman, and suffering from depression. She draws pictures of her cats too. This comic particularly resonated with me because sometimes it can be hard to be an Other. Like Santa, you have to be an example of whatever Other you are, non-threatening when answering questions, not act in any controversial way (lest you set a bad example for all the other nameless Others that somewhat resemble you), showing people we have come a long way, that we live in a supposed "post-discrimination" world, because if we didn't you'd be where you were before, in the lowest tier of society possible.

Because if we didn’t, you’d probably not be out here in the open, mingling with Sames.
