At this time the KNOWhomo team is digging deeper into the story of Linck. There have been too many opposing stories to share any accurate information at this time. We wanted to share the graphics above and start a conversation about how we research and compile information for our posts. If you have more information on Linck, please pass it our way.

LGBTQ* Online Comics You May Want To Know About
GIRLS WITH SLINGSHOTS by Danielle Corsetta
(following from WEBISTE)
She started writing Hazelnuts in high school, the precursor to Girls With Slingshots (unbeknownst to her at the time), and ran a comic about super-slacker college kids called Ramblers in the student paper at Shepherd College (as well as popimage.com).
In October of 2004, she began Girls With Slingshots, and a couple of years later she was doing the strip full-time. It’s now updated 5 times a week at some god-awful hour.
In addition to GWS, Danielle wrote and drew The New Adventures of Bat Boy for the Weekly World News, taking the reins from Bat Boy’s kind & talented former creator Peter Bagge.
Danielle lives in Shepherdstown, West Virginia in a 230-year-old house with her two cats, Smudge and Ellie (aka Fluffy and Sprinkles) and her 9-year-old goldfish Goldie. She loves sipping tea, going for hikes, and eating local foods, because she is a filthy filthy hippie.

LGBTQ* Insight Through Graphic Art
When Common Language Is Not Common Grounds
I think it is important to note how limited we are by language and how in conversation we may often find ourselves being prevented from expressing our support, compassion and our roles as allies when typing/talking/supplying opinions because words often resonate as the other person wishes to hear them. -I find it a nice slice of irony that when two opposing radical sides have a conversation (as depicted above) the language is similar even if the intention is completely opposite. Oddly enough, both sound just as naive and phobic as the other (in their own way).
Remember, you are what controls language. Don’t let language control you. —R.
