Diary Comic XV: Bowtie

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.

At least a bowtie gives off the air of “nerd” or “weirdo John Waters-wannabe” which is probably closer to the reality of myself.

Please note that the language used is reflective of how others have called and seen me; as I am writing about my experiences, I am using language true to those experiences. Anything else would be a falsehood.

These comics will be 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. I am hard on myself both as a protective measure (life can’t hurt you if you beat it to the punch) and as a result of my mental issues. As a result, the language is and often will be 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.

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.
