“For me, the issue has never been sexuality — crushes and lust and love come easily enough, and I’ve never cared what anyone else thought of my choices whether they were critical of the personality or gender of my chosen partner — it’s moving through the world with a particular set of gender expectations applied to me that’s always made me uncomfortable,” Grayson said. “It’s not that I’m a tomboy — I have a lot of very traditionally feminine traits and behaviors, but I also have several that are classically ascribed to males, and finding a way to make the world accept any kind of range or fluidity in your nature seems astonishingly difficult." -Devin Grayson

“At some point in my teens, my dad walked in on me kissing a girl on the living room couch, and he called me downstairs for a ‘private discussion’ and seemed very upset, though I honestly had no idea why. He asked if we were ‘practicing,’ and I laughed and said something obnoxious like, ‘No, Dad, we’ve pretty much got it down,’ and I watched him just deflate. He had no idea what to say or do, and I think even realized that he wasn’t totally sure why he was mad. A few hours later he interrupted us again to yell at me about putting the cheese away wrong –not wrapping it up properly– and he was way more upset than one would need to be over refrigerator cheese etiquette, but eventually I learned how to wrap cheese up properly and he learned that it was just as uncomfortable for him when I kissed boys, so he might as well stay out of the whole thing." - Devin Grayson

lilacsigil: "Magneto Was Right" (magneto was right)

Long before X-Men: First Class came out (and before some of the actors were born, just to make me feel old), Classic X-Men was reprinting old X-Men comics with an extra story at the back. There were two about Magneto - "Fire in the Night" which has been posted here before, and this one, "I, Magneto".

Warnings for Nazis, Claremontian foreign language use, fridging and massage. Seven pages from a 35-page comic.

Spoilers for X-Men: First Class under the cut. )

I think this was posted in the original Scans Daily. I could be wrong. Regardless short sad little story featuring Magneto.

Greetings True Believers! I'm here again. This is the back-up story from Classic X-Men #32. It's called "Shreds of Humanity" and it stars Proteus, Wolverine and Nightcrawler. But it's really about Wolverine. I was going to post it for the OPM week but Photobucket scanblocked me. This story is so bad-ass so I'm going to post it anyway.

The tale is set during the X-Men's epic battle with the mutant villain Proteus. (One the defining moments of Marvel's merry Mutants, as one of their main purposes is to not only protect mutants from the rest of humanity but to protect the human race against out-of-control mutants.) This story is also prime Wolverine. Before he was overexposed, on million teams and suffed from the "god" syndrome. (Like Batgod, Wolviegod, Supergod.) He was one of the strongest characters of the X-Men's second generation. He was a grown man, bitter and jaded. He had no past and did not fully embrace the X-Men's peaceful philosophy. He loved Jean and his "rival" relationship with Scott gave us one of comicdom's truly great love triangles. He was a gruff older brother to Nightcrawler and Colossus. A threat to members like Iceman and Angel, a fellow rogue to members like Banshee and Thunderbird. Wolvie in his prime was a lot of different things but he was always pure bad-ass, which this post shows. Enjoy!
