I never realized queer hockey was even a thing until Kids in the Hall.

SO, I mean, yeah, I've known about it for about 30 yrs now but... it's not a topic that comes up every day.

Queer Hockey? If you say so.

The only sport I think of as "queer" is tennis.

And that's only because of the helmets.

"That boy's more queer than a tennis helmet" was the favored saying of my best friend's mom about me. He's married to another guy right now, 20 years his junior. His mother isn't too happy about it. Mormons. Whatever you hate is going to end up in your family! Chris Rock was absolutely right.

Seeing the Q has been rightfully reclaimed by LGBTQ, there are at least three same-sex married couples I can think of from women's hockey.

Do the kids even still use the word queer these days?

Hockey goalies of all gender identification are giving power bottoms.

The gay community never stopped using it. It's a good shorthand instead of using all the people involved.

Any sport is queer if you're brave enough.

The comic is basically a decent, reasonably well-made webcomic with all the usual strengths and issues of the fairly typical slice-of-life webcomic deal that dominated that section of the comics industry in the early 2010s.

I don't know that I'd describe it as a "queer comic" just because some of the characters in it are gay, that's really reading themes into it that aren't there.  I feel like intentionally not there; the character's coming out was presented as just one more thing on a laundry list of insecurities and shiat he was dealing with that wasn't usually anywhere near the top of the list was pretty clearly a willful choice.  The man keeps what few romantic relationships he has off-screen, mostly, even, so it's actually outright irrelevant for most of the runtime.

I'd sort of recommend it, except the reason I dropped it was schedule slip that turned into months-long hiatuses which made the already unnecessarily slow pacing inherent to slice of life comics next-level irritating.  Again, pretty typical of webcomic projects, but if it's actually still running you're probably gonna feel like you're wasting your farking time when you hit whatever the new end of it is.

Yes.

Basically, you know how reactionaries are all "haha, LGBTFXBBQWTF, what an awkward and stupid acronym"?

Turns out a substantial minority of actual queer people had a similar, if less sneering, reaction to how dumb and awkward the acronym is to actually use, realized that "queer" actually covers everything since it's basically just the complement of straight (in the set theory sense of "compliment"), and use that instead.

Like... it turns out that gay/etc people also prefer terms that can actually be used in a sentence when discussing things, who knew.

*sigh* I was afraid you'd say that. Even pre-2020 I dropped a bunch of webcomics For exactly that reason. I don't have the headspace for a comic where you get a page every few months irregularly.
