I’d like to use this blog post to formally welcome Hat to the Tickld community. For those of you who haven’t yet met Hat, he’s a fantastic web comic artist and relatable personality who you’ll see occasionally posting to the new LGBT section.
He already has a sizeable following elsewhere on the Internet, but we’ve managed to scoop him up and we’ve convinced him to share his unique brand of humour with the Tickld community.
Please welcome him with open arms and give him a fair chance to win you over!
Q: Why does Hat get his own section?
A: Hat doesn’t get his own section.
Q: But Hat is on the section banner?
A: Hat’s existing audience doesn’t know much about Tickld, so it’ll be nice for them to see a friendly face if they choose to drop by.
Q: Isn’t an LGBT section just segregating gays?
A: No. That’s ludicrous. It’s intended to welcome a new gay audience to Tickld. When a restaurant sticks a rainbow flag in the window, they’re not warding off straight people, or suggesting that gays aren't allowed to eat elsewhere on the block.
Q: I’m disappointed in you for segregating gay people.
A: Quick! Hop on the bandwagon! Here’s some karma!
Q: Aren't we all equal here? Why are we giving LGBT people special treatment?
A: We're not giving LGBT people special treatment. We're giving all Ticklrs a section to discuss LGBT topics, and we're welcoming a new audience to Tickld.
Q: I don’t want to see LGBT.
A: Cool. Step 1) Don't add LGBT to your ME. Step 2) Stop complaining.
Q: What’s the point of sections anyway?
A: Categorization. According to Wikipedia, categorization is the process in which ideas and objects are recognized, differentiated, and understood. Categorization implies that objects are grouped into categories, usually for some specific purpose. Ideally, a category illuminates a relationship between the subjects and objects of knowledge. Categorization is fundamental in language, prediction, inference, decision making and in all kinds of environmental interaction.
