#822 Breakfast Buffet Buffer

The final full day in Vegas dawns. What will happen now....   The Kickstarter is up and running. One step closer to seeing this book in print. Thanks for everyone so far who have contributed. It really means a lot to me.

  1. Yeah, shemales can be quite a surprise 🙂 Anyway, some good food and a stroll are good helpers against hungover. At least for me.

    1. I touht the partner was just a crossdresser

    2. “Shemale” is an outdated and derogatory term.

      1. And what is a new term for a woman with a dick?

        1. It’s only new from a geological perspective, and certainly not “a woman with a dick.” There are many resources easily available, covering not only transgender but also other LGBT+ terminology, to avoid pejoratives. One of the most common is the GLAAD style sheet for journalists (https://www.glaad.org/reference). To show that such resources are available for more than gender identity, I searched duckduckgo.com for “apa style race sex,” which brought up this (https://apastyle.apa.org/style-grammar-guidelines/bias-free-language/gender) for gender more broadly (no pun intended), but primarily about gender identity, and also, farther down the page, this (https://apastyle.apa.org/style-grammar-guidelines/bias-free-language/racial-ethnic-minorities) just to show that there are such resources related to many potentially problematic terms.

        2. so, to answer your question more plainly, the term is “woman.”

  2. Hair of the dog is often the best hangover cure, if one can resist the lure of getting very drunk again.

  3. Finocchio’s was a famous drag nightclub in San Francisco, where my Mum took Dad once while they were courting (without spilling the beans, as it were). While he was admiring a vision of loveliness down the bar a bit, she mentioned that he (the vision) did indeed look good; Dad, being at least two sheets to the wind (jib tops’l sheet and outer jib sheet) did a triple take and uttered a “huh”, they left, and he never returned.

  4. “Finocchio” is Italian for “fennel.” However, it is also Italian slang for “homosexual.” It can pay to know foreign languages. 😉

    ….And this is why I pretty much shut down that little sub-plot with Dave. I was going to go into it a bit more but I realized I just wouldn’t be writing from a point of knowledge or, worse, be disrespectful. So let’s move on to the main stories I got planned for the rest of the Road Trip.

    1. You did the right thing.

  6. Well that turned out better than I expected! I can see giving Dave a little hassle since he’s kind of a skirt chaser, but I think cutting him a break is a good idea, touchy socio-political discussion aside. People are people, and while it’s always polite to treat them with respect and try to be deferential to their preferences of speech and so forth, it should also be understood that it isn’t a crime to unintentionally upset people.

    Eric, you’re one of the best comic writers for what I’d call ‘real’ people in your comic. Obviously some of this comes from making it semi-autobiographical, write what you know isn’t bad advice, but ultimately I think you just have enough wisdom about human behavior to do your characters justice. Thank you for sharing that with us. 🙂
