This comic breaks down the problem with whitewashing race.

"Not seeing color just means defaulting to the regular standard, which is white."

Sometimes people say they're "colorblind" — that they don't see race, and race doesn't matter to them.

This comic embraces the complexity of bisexuality in relationships.

Bisexuals do not 'pick' or 'end up on one side or the other.'

Let's get one thing straight: Bisexuality is real.

Contrary to popular belief, you don't just "switch teams" when convenient. Being bisexual is not in a medieval-style game in which you ultimately choose women or men at the finish line either. And bisexuality also doesn't end when you get in a committed relationship. Relationships don't end our physical attraction to other humans ... and for those who identify as bisexual, those other humans could be a man or a woman.

There are a lot of studies that point to the stigma and variations of bisexuality, too. Some studies show that women are more likely to identify as bisexual than men. But more men in recent years have admitted to having homosexual encounters, too.
