Hey, just a quick note, I’m a straight male nearly 63, a cartoonist still, and I read your comic on The Nib and enjoyed it a lot, it also made me realize how confusng it must be for a young person to navigate the world when their minds and their bodies are out of sexual sync. You seem to be coping well just being yourself. And it’s something that might never stop…as I age and my sexual desire and ‘so forth’ .changes, I, too have to adjust to my own new reality of a diminished sex drive,,,and being ok with it, throwing aside forty years of horniness for what I have now. It’s OK and it’s weird, and my point is life goes on and change continues. Best of chance with your personal life and your cartooning career.

And this tiny little grey area with tinyass point size is really irritating. I can barely read what I’m writing…thanks for your comics!

Thanks for your comment! I only just saw it – not sure why I didn’t get a notification about it. And sorry about the point size. This site is built off a WordPress template, and when I tried fixing the CSS on my own I broke the whole site. One of these days it’ll get an overhaul!
