I was speaking to a friend in Gaza and he told me that his little cousin is writing her name all over her body with her markers, just in case she gets blown up and no one can identify her. She is 11 years old. 11. The psychological pain and trauma the palestinian children go through is absolutely repulsive.

"För Mörk"

A two-page comic I keep forgetting to upload.

I made this comic last month and it’s about how nerd culture, cosplaying in specific, can be very excluding and downright racist towards anyone with skin darker than the darkest shade of foundation that you can buy at your nearest drugstore.

There’s already a shortage of representation. So many people feel discouraged to even try cosplay because they feel like there aren’t many characters to pick from to cosplay “accurately” because of their skin colour. Yet I see white folks dressing up as Asian characters all the time so I don’t see why brown folks can’t be a character who’s canonically white or just lighter than themselves. Listen up carefully now: there’s no such thing as “too dark” when it comes to skin colour. Ok? Ok.

Too lazy to translate the comic to English, might do it later tho. :-)

There is a documentary due to be released on norwegian television about this little girl, named Emma. She’s a 12 year old trans girl, and I’m rooting for her so much! When asked why she wanted to do the documentary, she answered “to show others that they can be who they’re supposed to be, and that they’re not alone” (◕‿◕)
