I made a comic more than a year ago about being hesitant to come out to my parents based on how they treated my beau, so this is a kind-of follow-up to that.
I know coming out stories are kind of cliched, but I also know that a lot of people reading this comic are younger than me and not out to family, so this is for you. Coming out sucks even when it’s not the end of the world. Regardless of whether you’re out or thinking of coming out or staying in the closet to stay safe, I promise your decisions are valid.
I hope everyone has a good rest of the week, and if you can, please consider supporting me on Patreon so I can make more art!
There are only two genders. Non-binary people are white angsty teenaged girls who’s parents didn’t love them enough. Non-Binary identity along with otherkin, therian (Insert special snowflake identity term here) should all be considered mental illnesses an d should be treated as such. If you identify as non-binary, you are not important, you’re delusional and mental ill.
”NON-BINARY PEOPLE IN FINLAND” : a photography project
Apila Pepita Miettinen, 24, lives in a colorful apartment with spouse Esa and their dog Bulma in Helsinki. Apila is inspired by strong and bright colors and lets it show. They are one of the organizers of the “Lilies of the Streets” -workshops, which addresses prostitution among other views through the eyes of non-binary people. Apila is currently working on a graphic novel titled MOSSDASH. The comic deals withtrans people involved in prostitution.
When taking Bulma out children come by and ask for permission to pet Bulma. While Bulma dislikes children, she tries to endure it. Bulma might get a friend soon, because Apila has reserved a dog from Romania who should fly to Finland after a surgery. Moving from Siilijärvi to Helsinki has helped Apila, because in Helsinki there are more like-minded people. Apila’s style is reflected by their life choices. Apila makes some of their own clothes and they take inspiration from the 80’s and 90’s. Vegan lifestyle is a strong part of everyday life and it is also reflected in the clothes. Apila hopes that the official third gender will be accepted in Finland as soon as possible.
