Identity politics is a cancer in indie communities, including comics and webcomics.
I honestly couldn't care less what colour skin you have while you're drawing, and neither should you. The only people who we should seek greater representation for in this community are people who have a love for this craft and a talent and passion for making comics, regardless of what arbitrary trait is being to singled out and celebrated this month.
But the majority of comic makers in the industry are white? Okay, so how does that statistic make things any easier for that 14 year old white kid drawing dragons in his bedroom to break into the industry than kids of any other ethnicity. It doesn't.
The overwhelming majority of webcomic creators are female or gender nonconforming. Does that statistic have any impact on males (15%) wanting to get into it? No, it doesn't. And I don't think I'm going to be seeing any MakeWebcomicsWhileMale hashtags anytime soon, and nor should we. Because it just doesn't fucking matter.
Most of you reading this will strongly disagree with me, and that's cool, I've got no problem with disagreements, especially between friends. But some of you will see this brand of identity-based activism for what it really is, and want to like a post like this to show support of what it's saying, but won't, for fear of ostracism from the community. And while that's totally understandable, it's also really sad.
