I have a Sadness plush who helps me in sad times, given to me by Andréa. But when I am in these low phases, I will tolerate so much discomfort and pain, because dealing with it seems so complicated and not worth the effort.
Hi everyone, 🙂
Remember that crowdfunder I posted about a couple of days ago? Well, it was successful, and the survey is now open!
So if your experience of gender is in any way out of that binary set-up of “always solely and completely male” and “always solely and completely female”, please do click here to take part.
It’s just eight questions, and six are optional, and there are lots of options plus a type-it-in box for most questions. For the gender question you can check as many boxes as you like, and there are no questions about name, email address, or gender assigned at birth. It’s open until Monday 27th February 2017. 🙂
I’m sure a few of you are aware of Nonbinary Stats, an annual survey that I run to find out how us nonbinary people describe ourselves, which pronouns and titles we identify with, etc.
The number of people taking part is up to a little over 3,000 now, and it’s getting bigger year on year. I’ve been using Google Forms, which is free and in many ways great, but also very limited. It is a lot of work for me to process the results, the form itself is pretty limited, and the data I can get out of it is pretty basic.
So I’m running a crowdfund to raise the £300 needed for a SurveyMonkey subscription that meets my needs, which I hope will enable a better survey experience and more interesting results for you, and an easier and more comfortable processing and write-up process for me.
We’re 71% down with only £97 left to go, and if you’d consider helping out somehow I’d be the happiest ever! Here’s some things you can do:
- Donate! You can choose to be credited in the final report or remain anonymous.
- Reblog this post on Tumblr.
- Retweet this tweet on Twitter.
- Check out this post on /r/nonbinary, and upvote if you are so inclined.
- Share the link with nonbinary folks in some other way! Facebook groups, mailing lists, at LGBT+ groups AFK… Here it is: https://igg.me/at/NBGQ2017/x/258999
- Follow the NonbinaryStats account on Twitter or Tumblr.
I know this isn’t strictly PiP-related, but I make comics about genderthings fairly often and I’m surrrrre a fair few of you are probably transgender and/or nonbinary, so I reckon there must be people here who’re interested!
Thank you for your time and attention. 🙂
I’m finding lately that I have comicky urges, but not necessarily enough energy or executive function to make a whole big comic at a desk. I’m also feeling that the comic scene on Instagram looks like fun! It’s a nice small canvas, sort of restricted in some ways, and so a very different medium to my usual. I can do it all from my Samsung tablet, which means simpler comics but also small comics that I can do from a bed or a comfy sofa. I think I could get into that.
So I’ve added it to the $2 tier on Patreon – if you pledge $2 or more per Big Comic, you can have access to the private comic Instagram account. The $2 tier is called Behind the Scenes, because you also get stuff like photos and descriptions of how I made the comic and where I got the backgrounds and so on.
I hope you’re doing okay. As I write this the world is going to hell in a handbasket that is on fire and full of fascist bees, so I know things are going to be really tough for a lot of us. Gosh I hope things get better soon. <3
Anyway, I’m here to let you know that I’ve set up a Twitter and Tumblr account just for Poly in Pictures notifications. I’ll no longer be posting them to my personal account, so if you want to know about comics without checking back here all the time then this is the easiest way.
And if you ever need to find those again, they’re in the bar at the top – the two “t” symbols on the far right. [Joke about current political climate.]
Take care, lovelies. Look after each other.
