The Way This Artist Explained Bisexuality In A Simple Comic Went Viral, But Not Everyone Agrees

Self-described “nonbinary, very queer cartoonist” Kori Michele Handwerker works from Brunswick, Maine, focusing on gender, sexuality, and personal identity. As of 2017, a strip by the artist called “Let’s Talk About Bisexuality!” has been gathering not only views but comments, too. Some people have found the content controversial, and it has sparked a discussion among viewers since its release.

Currently, Kori is pursuing a Masters Degree in Cartooning at the Center for Cartoon Studies in Vermont. The artist is simultaneously self-publishing journal comics, screenprinted zines, and erotic adult comics as well as organizing collaborative fanzines and undertaking freelance projects. Scroll down to read Kori’s comic and let us know what you think about it in the comments.

I agree with Robert G. DuBois and Lieut Cyril Worthingstone, just because you don't want to sleep with a transgender you are not automatically transphobic.

I second that, its only a step away from saying that because you wouldn't sleep with someone of your own gender you are homophobic. That whole comic didn't clear anything up for me, it just confused the crap out of me. I'd never even heard of nonbinary before!!! It just sounds like a ridiculous concept to me.

Because some people feel more comfortable with a label, it's not obligatory or anything though

Respect is to be earned, not given freely.
