cw for drawn food (new comic promo!)
Food, fucking, and handsome rivals- the first six pages of @irisjaycomics 's and mine's new comic are now up on @email@example.com ! Now updating every Tues + Thurs, with a delayed release on my Patreon ( patreon.com/itsnero ) and scripts on Iris's ( patreon.com/irisjay ).
@orrery so 'elevating' is usually used as a term for bringing more 'ethnic' foods (usually street foods, like tacos etc) into a more mainstream, high class environment. 'clean eating' refers to when chefs will take aforementioned street foods and make them 'clean' by saying they're made non-gmo, with less oil, etc etc. here's a couple recent examples:
let me know if that makes sense!
@itsnero The ideas make sense, at least insofar as "okay, this is the label they're applying to these actions" goes. I have a hard time imagining that one could do either of them and have the outcome be "authentic," at least as far as what I understand most people would consider "authentic." Thank you for the explanation!
@orrery yep! and even the idea of 'authentic' in food is extremely flawed on a lot of levels! it's definitely something we wanna talk about with this comic, lol.
@itsnero I have a lot of Opinions about the concept of authenticity in general. In general, I understand what people mean when they use it, but as a trans autistic person, I've been on the receiving end of weaponized versions of the idea too many times to be entirely comfortable with it. xvx
A personal, single-user instance for myself. Check out my adult art and erotic comics at itsnero.com!
