A thousand million thanks to the mods for running this fest and being so understanding as to give me an extension on my extension. You all are wonderful :)

Artist's Notes: Going into this, I had so many ideas for how to portray my prompt, but less on how to emphasize consent. After thinking and thinking, I realized that being queer, at least in my experience, often involves a loss of consent. Not sexual consent, per se, but getting consent in how you are identified. So often, people don't even think to ask each other how they identify, we are so used to categorizing into male and female immediately upon meeting someone. I wanted to show how just because people aren't deliberately seeking to hurt someone, that doesn't mean they haven't broken consent.
