Here’s a riddle for you: if a girl hates boys but is not a “lesbian”, yet (very) interested in dating a particular girl, what is she? It’s not really meant to be a secret like so many other developments in this story though. I kinda wanted to spell it out here, but I just couldn’t seem to work the word into the dialogue in a way that felt natural. I wanted to really stress how awkward and out of her comfort zone Chanel was even talking about this, no matter how eager she was to pursue it. So, I felt it would be kind of out-of-character if she could manage to articulate and pinpoint her feelings.

But there is a word for it, and it’s the first time this demographic is being addressed in the story (and I must say, I’m happy to include it at last). If you guess it, I won’t deny it. Otherwise, it will be revealed officially a little later.

Oh yeah, so MarNel is official now, I guess. It was kinda predictable (many of you jumped on that bandwagon the second they started talking again), but pat yourself on the back if you saw it coming. ^_^

This was a weird, all-over-the-place blurb… :O_o:

No clue what you call someone like that, but I am glad to see these two together.
Zackwell 18th Jan 2013, 2:16 AM edit delete reply
I believe it's called platonic love.

And I thought everyone else was confused. But at least Rudy and Maria know their orientations, while Gavin is attracted to transsexuals and Kylie and Rain...

...

Actually, everyone's confused.

Somewhere under the asexual umbrella, I'm guessing?

@chophero

You do realize that "asexual " means that you can reproduce on your own, right?
rachelevil 18th Jan 2013, 6:13 AM edit delete reply
Not when talking about humans, no. Some words do have more than one meaning.
TyRy 18th Jan 2013, 6:59 AM edit delete reply
You're thinking of Asexual Reproduction. Asexual means "non-sexual", which by itself would mean that Chanel is not interested in sexual interaction.
Jude P 18th Jan 2013, 7:23 AM edit delete reply
Generally when we're talking LGBTA+ stuff or orientation or any of that, or basically just referring to humans in general, "asexual" means "uninterested in sexual relations" or "not attracted to anything really". (However, I aspire to one day having the ability to reproduce asexually as well, with Science. It'll be cool.)

I think the word you're looking for is "cloning."

Thanks for the link (=^ェ^=)
And yeah, I think it might be platonic love. That's how I started with Frankie. Eventually, I realized that I didn't care about gender or anything else. Well, physical gender, I mean.
Anyways, I'm sure Frankie will put your advice to good use.
I can't wait. Her first time passing in public >w<
Er..... I'm rambling. Sorry. Ill shut up now σ^_^;

@Kitsune-kun

Well, I wish her the best. I know how scary it is going out into public that first time, and how surreal it feels. She just needs to be calm, and act as naturally as she can. I know that's easier said than done, but it's something that comes with time. I'm sure she'll do fine. ^_^

Also, "asexual" also means bearing no sexual attraction to either gender.

I read a manga about a girl who liked a girl, but wasn't a lesbian... Forgot the name of it though... Damn. >.<

I do not think you have addressed this yet but Chanel is a diffrent ethnicity than the main cast. Is She part Native American or Is She Hispanic not that it matters I just was curious because she is noticeably darker than maria. If I offend anyone please know it is not my intention to I am just curious

@j-eagle12212012

Yep. Chanel is Hispanic. It's not really a major focal point or anything; it's just what she is. ^_^

Hm...so Chanel is in the Gray As too eh lol

Almost a year late on these comments...but the comic strip has at least one commenter now who can vouch that asexual scientifically can mean reproducing by oneself, but like many other things in today's society, it has a new cultural meaning. Not all people can look at anyone in the gender spectrum and automatically have a thing for them.

Asexuality introduces romantic spectrums too, so...
Although Chanel might also be herm and/or demisexual/homoromantic, but that wouldn't grant this reaction, I think. lol

Herm as in hermaphroditic? I highly doubt that is what it is.

I'm thinking she's Pansexual, personally.

"Here’s a riddle for you: if a girl hates boys but is not a “lesbian”, yet (very) interested in dating a particular girl, what is she?"

She's not a lesbian. She's just interested in a certain person. Love is love. It's up to us. It doesn't need our labels.
