RAIN p202 - Mistake! by JocelynSamara RAIN p202 - Mistake! by JocelynSamara

This is partly here to poke fun at myself for all of the kissing scenes that have been popping up lately. There is, of course, a more serious significance to it though.

Since the introduction of “RuIn” and the theme of “curing gay” has come up, there has been a great deal of concern voiced about what message I’m trying to convey with the comic's direction. There has been some misunderstanding, but I do want to make clear that I do not believe one can be “cured of homosexuality”, nor do I believe you can choose to magically stop being gay. As a transgirl and a lesbian (who has tried to stop being so in the distant past), I know full well how NOT a choice things like this are.

And that's just it. Sometimes, just like Maria here, we have to learn the hard way that we can’t we escape who we are.

Kinda feel bad for Gavin though. That might've been his first kiss, and she might barf... -_-

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

Also, if you enjoy the comic, please vote for "Rain" on TopWebComics!

This is something that annoys and confuses me. For some reason there seems to be the idea that if you are gay the act of kissing the opposite gentder disgusts you. I'm very much gay and have had no problems kissing girls before. The GLBQA group at my collage had a game of spin the bottle one day for shits and giggles and the lesbian I was going to kiss acted like I was the most hidous creature alive. WTF? I was out by that time but really didn't have a problem kissing her. It really is like they only act that way because for some reason they fell like they are suposed to. All the labels are so stupid. Why dose society have to try and label every little thing, esspecially when gender and sexuality is so very fluid. Sorry for the rant but I just had to let that out. I am realy enjoying the comic so far and am looking forward to more.

Actually, I agree with you. I personally, am a lesbian, but have no real revulsion to kissing guys or anything.

That said, I do know people who are opposed to going out of their comfort zones (whether gay, lesbian or straight). There are those who are very open and comfortable, and there are those that are very "strict" about their sexuality (admittedly, I think their maturity plays a role in this too). But I don't really think it's wrong or right either way; it's just yet another way people are so diverse. At least, that's how I see it.

This reminds me of a scene that happened with friends the other day.
Friend A was making a funny face at everyone, so I made the same funny face and got right up next to him, hoping to scare him when he noticed me. Instead, we got locked in a staring contest. Our faces got closer and closer together as we silently dared each other to blink, stop making the funny face, laugh, anything. Suddenly Friend B calls "Just kiss, already!" and I immediately say "Ew." and move my face a few inches away.

... Then I realize what I just did. While my friends are cracking up and saying stuff like "Smooth." and "Ouch." I'm trying not to giggle as I spew out apologies to Friend A. "Oh my god I'm sorry I didn't mean like that I'm just gay! I didn't mean you, I meant boys in general! I'm so sorry!"

Wow, in many ways thats quite cold. I know Maria's going through something tough, but Gavin was already confused, now he's...what, doubly so? Trebly so?

To be fair, Gavin's sandwich could have contributed something to that barf-y sick feeling. Possibilities.

Touché. God only knows what kind of stink sandwich that boy was eating. :XD:

I think it isn't so much that it "cured his homosexuality" I feel that it's that he loves Rain to the point where it bypasses his Sexual Preference. To quote Rudy *ahem*
"...I would say my feelings have nothing to do with what you are. Rather, they're about who you are."
Rudy, Page 191 -> [link]
In all honesty its one of the big reasons I support RuIn. Rudy's feelings are based on who Rain is, not what she looks like or what gender she is.

I get so technical about this stuff, sorry ^^;.....
