Sport Science S02E11: World’s Toughest Woman (June/21/2009)

"Gina can land all 8 blows in a blistering 3 seconds. And how much does this maelstrom combine to generate? An amazing 4,800 pounds of force. That’s like a North Pacific giant octopus pounding you with all 8 of it’s arms. Translation: In 3 seconds, Gina could brake your ribs, give you a concussion, shatter your nose, rupture your spleen, cause internal bleeding, and put you down for the count."

I cant express how much I like find Chaos. Super nice to see a trans character just being a character and not token of diversity. A gay character that has trouble with his sexuality. Honestly this is one of the best web comics

findchaos answered:

Thank you so much!!

Showing a lot of diversity in the gender and sexuality spectrums has always been very important to K and me, especially since the topic of diversity seems to be something rarely incorporated into the action or horror genres, whether in comics, movies, television, or what-have-you. Likewise, having those characters stay outside of common tropes is a priority, because representation doesn’t amount to much if they’re just a stereotype or a 2-dimensional token to pander to the readers. For creators, the question shouldn’t be “what minority should we shoehorn in,” it needs to be “is this a well-rounded character who happens to land in the LGBT spectrum; maybe that directly impacts their narrative or maybe not?”

And that’s the point: some of our characters have and will have their GSM status explored (as Arthur, Remi, Fragile, and C.E. already have to varying degrees), whereas others will remain ambiguous until the point when it’s something relevant to their character and not just a "LOOKIT THE _____" moment.

We, as a society, need more visible LGBT characters in the media, across the genres — not in exploitative schlock, not as punchlines, not as the sole basis of their existence, but as diverse a set of characters with as many potential roles as any other straight, cisgendered, and/or white characters are already given.

It’s a concept that is very gradually gaining support, but I hope K and I can keep doing our bit to help with FindChaos. Here’s to more LGBT characters kicking ass everywhere!

I love this comic very much!
