My friend Vita had a pretty good argument about this, that I mostly remembered sort of… It was better when she said it.
But the point being do I have to have excuses if I write straight male characters? NO, so no excuses for drawing as many queer characters as I want to draw.
Uhm wow, so reblogging for truth. I used to ask myself this crap all the time with Baritarian Boy and other projects - “oh man, we just made another gay/bi/queer character, should we do that, is that believable, are there too many etc.” Fuck that. Someone’s got to balance out all the white cisgendered males in comics and fiction. And to be honest, I could even try harder, I think.
