Diary Comic XLIV: Labels

Another of my diary comics, which I will eventually collect in a book as I make more. A few that I decide to share, I will post online. Others will be book exclusive.

I’m a tad late for Coming Out Day but then again I never was one for labels…or timing…or tact. But weird jokes and call backs to previous diary comics aside, Daddy truly is what I identify as, what I am. Accepting and realizing that kink (specifically daddy-dom/little) was just as much a part of my orientation as all the rest of it and, furthermore, the answer to integrating and actualizing the very contrasting realities of my self and my body has been a life saver. I do not know how to put it into words — but I hope that, by trying to talk about it, I can make the whole mess of human sexuality and understanding all that just a bit easier for someone…even if that someone is just me.

These comics are based on experiences and thoughts I’ve had regarding life, and its many struggles, including those of gender, sex, mental illness, and everything in between. As a result, the language is often blunt, aggressive, shocking, and sometimes painful; similarly, my humor is often dry, self-deprecating, and dark. I write the way I speak and definitely the way I speak to myself which is not often nice. Also some are just for fun — to capture the joy of the mundane, the sacred and the profane.

While some things may be embellished, simplified, or exaggerated for the comic medium, there is always a truth to them for that snapshot of time.
