COMMENT VIRGINITY IS MINE!...
... that is, with it’s appropriate consent of course.

Also, I love the comic! I love the author/artist! I love the plot! I love the determination and effort in it all. I really do.

I hope this doesn't offend anyone but.....why is respecting someone's pronouns so important? I'm an otherkin so I understand stuff like this. I'm also bisexual, so yeah. But if people kept calling me straight and wouldn't except that I'm bi (for whatever reason) I don't think it would be that big of a deal. I really don't get it. Also, people always call me a furry instead of otherkin (which is basically the misgendering of the otherkin community), but it's still not a big deal. I just tell them that I'm an otherkin and if they still don't respect that it still doesn't matter to me. I find it a little offensive yeah, but why should we even try to label ourselves? What's the point of being so angry over someone else's opinion? I really just don't understand why. I'm not trying to offend, I'm just confused on how people can get so worked up over stuff like calling someone the wrong gender.

Hun, it is obvious that you are not set on offending or attacking anyone so clarifying it is unnecessary. Anyway, like many things, it's up to the perceiver and their perception. I understand the confusion and I think that I may be able to help give you answers. I believe that thinking of it as the matter of a person's favourite colour. If a person was encouraged to like the colour green and then came to realise that they either never liked that colour and/or loved another colour much more, say puce, then that person may take pride in their preference. Maybe that person would buy more puce shaded objects, or ask for more puce coloured things instead of the green that they've been receiving. If someone else who maybe encouraged the IP (initial person) to take a liking to green or shades of it and disliked how the IP has changed their favourite colour to be more accurate to themself (whether the reason may be a perceived betrayal or deception, or their own personal values) that person, call them the RP (reaction person), may continue to gift the IP green things. The IP may think that it's a misunderstanding, but when they try to clear it up the RP makes clear that they show a negative reaction to the IP's decision. Maybe that reaction is disappointment, or anger, or neglect, or something else entirely, hell, maybe it's a mixture of them! Whatever it is, it's now made clear that the RP is against and/or unsupportive of the IP's decision and may continue to dismiss, disregard, or neglect it completely. Maybe the IP has informed more supportive individuals of their finding/change of favourite colour and those individuals may feel compelled to establish to the RP that the change is a thing and it needs to be respected, not ignored or attacked. And the IP may not approve this, regardless of intent.

There are several factors here, as with most everything, and I can represent Keahi with IP, Magnus with the supportive individual, and much of all the rest of the characters except for the one other guy who actually spoke -like the smirking soldier in the other room- as different types of RP.

However I must express that even though I don't personally take extreme offence to someone I know little about misgendering myself, I do take defence to the misgendering or blatant disrespect of those close to me. I find that the more I care about and/or respect a person, the more value I place upon and mind I pay to their opinions. I believe that the answers to your questions would be that the nature of humanity is to have a name, a label, to refer to things as rather than show the visual representations of such things. As for your second question, anger is a secondary emotion that can be and is rooted in the primary emotions of fear, hurt, and or sadness. The hurt felt when an RP consistently disrespects a change in the words used to refer to a person can easily evolve into anger; as can the fear of that disregard lasting forever and possibly having a negative influence of those that one has yet to meet. It's messed up, but it does happen and can have the potential to effect the future of one if such is the case. I don't personally feel hurt by being misgendered, I correct that who has misgendered me and continue. This situation would happen in a casual conversation with a peer or that of similar level. However, the scene in the comic is not a casual conversation. It seems to be that there is constant disregard for Keahi's identity and even remarks intended to hurt and put them down. Keahi seems to see this as a tolerable obstacle, one that intervention is unwarranted, but it is clear that Magnus is disgusted with the mistreatment of them and feels compelled to take action to stop it from continuing.

I do hope that this helped, and I'd be plenty ok with furthering the discussion with you via PM's.

Uuuhhhh......I guess I got all of that. I get your point. I still don't believe it's that big of a deal, but I get ya. Also, the only reason I stated about offending people so much is cause in today's society it's either you're the triggered or the triggerer XD. Also, don't call me hun plz (pet peeve of mine).

@Anya Otherkin: Hey there! So, the main thing about not misgendering someone is the respect behind it.
Some people don't mind being misgendered but other (like me) hate it with a passion. It's pretty simple when you think about it. For example, you said you don't like being called 'hun' right? Well, what if I kept calling you 'hun' even though I know you don't like it? Even though you told me explicitly you don't like it? That's disrespectful, right?
Well, it's the same. For example, I get when people that don't know me misgender me - it's the way they perceive me, it's not their fault - it's not anyone's fault. However, when I meet someone and say 'hi, my name is Daniel and I'm a boy' and that person call me a 'girl' or use 'she/her' pronoums, that is simply disrespectful. I told them what I am, what I like being called and having that being ignored is disrespectful, hurtful and really invalidating.
I hope this helped you understand ;)

Well, when I ask people not to call me hun and per names like that it's because of a different reason other than I just don't like it (it's a very personal reason), but yes, I see what you mean. I guess it just depends on the person. Glad to have this cleared up :)

Make them respect you?
Shit, that's what I do with kids at my school. And with my teachers.
