In the DC Universe, Clark Kent blogs on his Tumblr and Lois Lane reblogs posts from him.
But she doesn’t like how he made an Anti-Superman post. Tsk tsk tsk
- To mixed people who only look like one of their races
- To mixed people who look ‘ambiguous’ ‘exotic’ ‘unique’ and get both fetishized and treated badly for it

- To mixed people whose identities get ignored
- To mixed people whose identities are questioned
- To mixed people who are told ‘they aren’t really ___’
- To mixed people who have mixed hair and mixed skin and can’t find cosmetic care products for themselves

- To mixed people who can’t fit in with the parts of their family
- To mixed people who only have connections to one of their races
- To mixed people who are too ‘___’ or not ‘___’ enough
- To mixed people who aren’t white, but can pass for white.
- To white mixed people who are white passing, and have to decide between having their identity erased or having to deal with more racism
- To white mixed people who aren’t white passing, and don’t get the choice.
- To white mixed people who aren’t white passing, but their siblings are
- To mixed people who have to deal with prejudice from their own family, white or not. (anti-blackness, fetishism, colorism)
- To transracial adopted mixed people who have never known any of their family
- To mixed people who have to figure out their identities by themselves
To mixed people who have to deal with so much shit. You are strong, you are beautiful, and you are valid.
For mixed people everywhere, stand in solidarity with each other. While we have similar experiences, not everyone has the same experience, or relationship with their race. Be aware of whatever privileges you have. Listen to others and always help one another.
Five more years and the future will look like this.
Cyberpunk dystopias for all.
I’m not sure what I classify myself as. I primarily seek romantic relationships with women, but I have been attracted to men - just not in a sexual sense. I also like androgyny. I do know that I fall into demisexual territory (I believe is the correct terminology). I’m only comfortable being intimate with someone I’ve built a strong emotional connection with.
I deeply apologize to my followers if this sounds obnoxious and muddled. Please feel free to correct any mistakes I might have made.
Okay. The sign above has been in my apartment laundry for over a year. Today it finally fell on the ground. As I picked up the paper, I discovered the most glorious passage on the back of it.
I want to know what books my landlords are reading.
People usually only include the first 2 panels
“This is an original fantasy book with no superheroes, two non-white leads and an opening chapter featuring graphic robot sex. I thought we might be cancelled by our third issue.”

Both Brian and Fiona have repeatedly said that their heroes are PoC. And of course it’s clear from Fiona’s illustrations that neither Alana nor Marko are white, but that Alana has darker skin than Marko.
The only featured/recurring character in the Saga universe who actually seems to have white skin is The Stalk.
However, I still come across white-washed Saga fan art and fancasting posts, which never cease to amaze and infuriate me. No matter how pretty the art, I will never repost that shit.
If people genuinely see these characters as white, they need to check their eyesight or their racism. And I doubt the optometrist will find any deficiencies.
Thanks for the ask. I haven’t had a good rant on this subject in a while!
Personal pet peeve is folks who think Marko is white. He ain’t.
Marko is meant to be Asian- more specifically, I combined features from a handful of Japanese models and actors when I was designing him. I can see why people sometimes mistake him for white, because I avoided using exaggerated racial markers (slanted eyes, rounded nose, etc). With simple cartoon drawings like these, a lot is left to the reader’s imagination. So I accept there will be some misidentification because I didn’t draw Marko’s family like Mulan characters, haha.
I see Alana as having mixed heritage. When I drew her father I was envisioning an Indian man. Her mother remains a mystery!
