Reine #36: Figuring It Out

In a four panel comic in rosy colored pastels, two friends try to work out their pronouns. Both friends are people of color, one has a blue mullet and one has dark curly hair in a ponytail and glasses. The friend in glasses asks, "Help me out here. How do I describe like… I use she/her but in a masculine way." The friends brainstorm options, "A short king. She’s just some guy.

I’m a girdled. A cowboy. I’m just some guy." before deciding on "A she/sir!"
