illustration for a tafe assignment.
we had to pick one of three titles and create a childrens story from it, then illustrate a couple of double page spreads, title page etc. but i chose one of my own stories i already had in mind from a while ago, and made it a little more child friendly xD
anyway this is my second page : D (minus text)

first page- [link]

ps. both the characters are designed to be male however for the sake of my teachers sanity i will be referring to the mer-thing as female (or at least an "it" ) in the printed version ^^;

what's your story about? If there both male, please don't let it be gay not if it's a children story away

it's a childrens story so clearly there wouldn't be sexual content, and the thought of whether they are gay or not never occurred to me. however i dont see any need of sheltering children from gay themes because they can cope with that kind of thing much better than adults. persecution is something that they are influenced into, not born with. also why would it matter with so many children that have gay parents these days?
that was a very offensive comment and i hope you reconsider it.

Sorry I didn't mean to offened, just never thought of some of it that way before. Even though it's not my place, I'm not big on the whole thing. But just so no hard feelings I would really like to know about your story. I for new stories to critique and help writers anyway I can. Sorry if I offered you in anything. I never meant for that.

i'm not a writer this was just for a one-off assignment so i don't really desire any critique for it. (since i wont be writing again).
If its something you are not big on and you don't want to offend people, you should avoid bringing it up. (because in this case i didn't even make any indication that the characters might be gay, but it felt like you were trying to start an argument ). Or if you really want to ask, maybe ask in a gentler way?
also if you are interested, have a look at google search results for "kids books about gay parents".  it's actually quite normal for them to exist.
thankyou for apologizing anyway though
