This comic strip really captures what it’s like striving to be understood as a non-binary gender identified person. It resonated with me right away. The strip is from the series a Robot Hugs:
Here’s what RH wrote about this strip:
It all just feels like so much work all the time. I don’t want to deal with this stuff! I have other things to think about!
Related: Trans people aren’t ‘obsessed’ with bathrooms, we don’t care about bathrooms ‘too much’. We want to not care about bathrooms at all. You’re the the weird ones obsessed with bathrooms. Don’t put that on us.

Robot Hugs is a webcomic updated on Tuesdays and Thursdays, or thereabouts. It is about a lot of things, but you can expect to see a lot of cats, a bunch of identity, gender, and sexuality discussions, and explorations of depression and mental illness, especially in the winter. Robot Hugs may include occasional cartoon depictions of nudity and discussion of sexuality – NSFW comics are generally labelled as such.
You can also check them out on Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook.
