Missing my friends out of state. Having those Post PAX blues. Thought I’d do a few sketches to practice inking. Clockwise from top: Nick, Amy, Rex, Tavis, Moen, Me.
It really freaks me out every time I’m reminded that all of my favorite artists know each other. o_o;
OK. This made me laugh.
She looks roughly as pissed off by this as the rest of the world does.
I’m really glad people are opening up and talking now, because the degree to which people think shit like this is acceptable is ridiculous. Industry professionals need to make huge changes, but so do consumers and fans. We just all need to be better than this. Jesus Christ.
Adding these last tweets too because it illustrates perfectly how this stuff goes even beyond “internet harassment” to creating a culture where women don’t feel safe doing their day to day lives because of the way that men get away with this shit ( and without being challenged or silenced!).
My biggest hope from all these conversations is that they will not just go away, like so many previous ones, and that things will start to change, because. I mean how many other ways are there to say this? Unacceptable and abhorrent in every way.
I see Kate half the times I go into the comic book store and she’s never been anything but nice and helpful and fun. I can’t even imagine the mindset you’d have to have to literally dedicate days of your life to trying to tear down someone else in such a horrible way. Imagine what you could do with that time otherwise.
I’m trying to read Homestuck. I’m on Act 2. I’m scared and confused. ;-;
consent is sexy in the same way that not shitting on people’s doorsteps is sweet and neighborly
This is not about an actress of color, but please vote against David O. Russell being included in #TIME100. If you are unaware, he admitted to sexually assaulting his transgender niece, and does not deserve any sort of praise or recognition. Reblog to spread the word!
I twittered about this earlier, but sometimes it feels as though talking about misogyny in this industry is like dealing with Groundhog Day: there seems to be a continuous reset, a collective male amnesia around the issue. As if, when a woman speaks out, it’s for the first time and everyone is shocked. Just shocked, I tell you. Sexism exists? OH MY GOD.
Veteran writer Marjorie Liu on sexual harassment/misogny in the comics industry—and the collective amnesia that hits much of the industry every time the topic ever gets broached. (via robot6)
"exceptionalism" excuses the violence of oppressive power. no exceptions.
I feel like this happens every time there’s a “rape scandal” where it’s revealed that the police handled it horribly or sexually assaulted the victim themselves, or something similar. Every single time, women are like “o this again time to get out the old protest signs” and every single time men are like “WHAT IN GOD’S NAME IS HAPPENING THAT SUCH A THING COULD HAPPEN THIS ONE SINGLE TIME?!”
(I am working the customer service area of a large grocery store, you know the small booth that sells the smokes and the lotto tickets. A customer walks up and I start to check him out.)
Customer: You aren’t charging me for the bag.
Me: Yeah, I am.
Customer: No seriously, you aren’t charging me for a bag.
(It’s a 5 cent charge that some places in Ontario have banned and some still use)
Customer: It’s a scam you know, the price is built into the cost of the grocery’s. So you are scamming us.
(I smile and now while he’s going on about this)
Customer: So, like I said, it’s a scam. You are scamming me.
Me: I just do as I’m told sir.
Customer: That’s what the Nazi’s said.
(I stood there flabbergasted for a moment, but later had a few laughs with my co-workers about being called a Nazi. Wage-slave might have been a better term. My wife was right POed when I got home and told her about it.)
WHEN THEY CAME FOR OUR PLASTIC BAGS, I DID NOTHING.
Talk about 100% ridiculous. What a complete loser… if you want to avoid the bag charge get a reusable bag, you dunce! And to compare it to nazis? OMG first world problems. e_e
I think I may have gotten a light concussion from smashing my head yesterday… I was dizzy, nauseous, sleepy (I napped for 2 hours afterwards and just slept for 9 hours), was having these crazy mood swings (I could not emotions it was distressing) and I STILL cannot get my eyes to work right.
Doctors are expensive and I would rather spend the day working on my website. Doctor, yes/no, since I’ve already slept twice and haven’t like… gone into a coma.
PS I also have a nasty bruise and it’s kind of near my eye so I’m worried the doctor will think my fiance’s been hitting me. Caaaause he really looks the type, poor guy.
