Thoughts

I really enjoyed this! It was cute, funny, and very informative. The art was very nice and comedic in places. This under 100 pages graphic novel contains a lot of information and text, but it’s divided into several chapters including what is queer, what is trans, what is asexuality, what is a healthy relationship, etc. It was a quick but informative read.

In the beginning, I didn’t fully understand why they were snails, but later on, in the coming out chapter, it all made sense.

The synopsis says it’s for anyone and everyone, and it truly is. I am asexual and I like gaining knowledge about other sexual orientations and other genders, and even for me the was new information in here. As an asexual, I am comfortable with the label, but I’ve never researched it just in case I don’t fit into its boxed walls. I didn’t know this book would contain a whole chapter on asexuality, but I m quite relieved it did. Does small questions I had in the back of my head were answered and I’m oh so totally happy about it. Asexuality does not have boxed walls and it does not have gatekeepers. I could never be happier.

My favourite graphic was this one. It really made me chuckle. Talk about hitting the nail on the head 😂
