Reine #22: Try To Keep Up, Doc

In a six panel comic drawn in pastel colors, a doctor explains to their patient that their new digital patient intake system is so inclusive! It has multiple choice options. The patient clicks other and instructs the doctor to type in "Lesbian" — confused the doctor asks, "you want your gender to say Lesbian?" The patient smiles and waits for them to begin typing.

  1. I long for the day where we don’t have to give any gender information at all, where they remove the question instead of just giving more and more possible answers, but until then… Fuck Yes, I love telling people lesbian is my gender as well :D (Also Ren your pacing and expressions in this one are a whole new level of good!)
