this happens to me every single time i am sick to death of seeing the same thing
why are you reblogging this oh god please don’t
Because you’re right
Every. Single. Time. In a YA book. That otherwise has an okay premise.
I really need to make a post about the higher rates of suicide and arrest among adopted and foster children (most of whom are girls, given that girls are more frequently in demand as “orphans”), wherein even outside the juvenile justice system and psychiatric wards, isolation, forcible restraint, and sensory deprivation are often mandated. [MAJOR TRIGGER WARNING for linked contents]
Black women and girls are the fastest growing group of ppl being incarcerated in the US and 60% of us (moderate research results) have been sexually assaulted/raped by the age of 18. and we are criminalized doubly for that and having the nerve to act out or be on the streets as a result and need to survive in whatever way

Okay, I realize this hilariously late for Asexuality Awareness Week (which was last week), but due to unforeseen stressors, it didn’t really get done in time.
Anyway! I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while, and I’m proud of myself of actually getting a six page comic done within a week. (Not that it’s really anything super fancy, but it’s better than nothing lol) I do apologize for the massive ugly text wall that is page four but I had a hard time figuring out how to convey it visually while being kind of pressed for time.
oh and the occasional copy/paste, I’m sorry for that too
Enjoy! Click on the separate pictures if the text is hard to read.
