Ky returns! (Also Drew!) The last time we've seen these two interacting, they'd discussed meeting at their homes, rather than a public place like the mall. Hence, Drew's went over the Ky's place.

Of course, Drew throws his foot in his mouth in record time here. Luckily, Ky doesn't seem too perturbed about it though. But is this setting the stage for things to only get worse here, or are we starting from the bottom and moving up to a great day between these two?

I'd think it would be upward bound. I imagine this sort of thing happens with some regularity. Drew hopefully has enough of a mind not to mention it again.

Poor Ky and poor Drew. Ky because of needing to be saved and it being painful to be reminded and Drew because he hit a sore spot unintentionally. Drew's question wasn't at all odd or rude and he had no way to know, Ky's reaction is understandable, but not very fair, I hope things improve.

If Drew is at Ky's apartment, there's a chance he might run into Rain or Fara (or Emily!) later.

perspective is everything
and nothing beats a pokemon battle perspective! ^_^

seriously though, unrelated to the tone of the panels, the last 2 really feel like battle mode

"Dorky Guy Drew wants to battle!" XD

Frankly, I would expect that basic home life details like 'I don't live with my parents' should come up long before a friend, let along a lover, comes over to the others house.

The question about how Ky's parents view his genderfluidity was certainly rude, but in Drew's situation I would be very worried why this hasn't come up sooner.

I don't know, is this just me? I don't exactly have tons of social experience so I'm not entirely sure.

I don't blame Drew for asking the first part, generally, one lives with their parents. Drew probably isn't and hasn't been in a position to know otherwise about ky at this juncture, so it's natural to ask. The latter part would be less rude if it was asked after the first part had been answered in the affirmative, because in that case, it helps avoid accidentally outing anyone which is a good thing.

While I agree Drew could have waited to find out if Ky lived with his parents before brining up the gender topic I nk he simply hasn't had this kind of experience to know that until now, also dont think there was any danger of outing Ky since he's in boy mode right now

Given that Ky effectively confirmed being them being alone in the house in panel 2 there really wasn't a risk of outing him to anyone.

That's more a concern for "hey down the road if we're in a room with your parents is it safe for me to bring this up"

That was, uh... a little harsh on Ky's part...

I've known enough people with abusive or otherwise painful family lives to generally make a point of not asking about people's parents unless they mention them first. People who are fine talking about their parents usually will sooner rather than later; people who aren't okay with it tend to avoid the subject until they feel they're okay with you knowing.

Agreed! I do the same; a lot of people I'm close to have complex and/or painful family dynamics and histories, so I generally try to avoid making assumptions about who people live with/talk with/etc. etc. Much like being inclusive to LGBTQ+ folks, it's one of those things that only affect a few people, but can really mean a lot to the people whom it does impact. :)

Touchy subject best dropped quickly.

Well, all Drew has to do here is remark something like, "hey, you already know I'm not the sharpest pencil in the box, oooooops."
Guest 5th Jul 2017, 10:08 PM edit delete reply
Oh, yeah, and I forget. Was it Drew or Gavin who Ky took into the closet and showed boobies? Not sure but I think Gavin.

Huh. I don't think we've heard anything about Chanel's parents' opinions, or Jessica's parents at all... is Ana the only queer character (that's had focus) with any positive bio-parents?
