The Cost for Women Working in Comics

DEAR MEN IN COMICS:

THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO HIGH.

You need to help lower the price of women doing business in comics and in comics fandom to only the hard work. Not the hard work plus ducking threats online and off of violence, dodging groping,…

A little behind the scenes look of the early stages of Green Lantern the Animated Series.

My eternal gratitude to everyone who helped prove the doubters wrong.

The unnecessary shrinking of Amanda ‘The Wall’ Waller frightens me. That’s right, it doesn’t just annoy me, doesn’t just make me roll my eyes, it frightens the hell out of me. Because it clearly means that if some real comic book fan – some boy, somewhere – doesn’t get a boner every time he sees a female in a panel, the world will end. Like something out of The Twilight Zone. Clearly. Because… what other excuse could there be? Why else would you have to go and eff with one of the only female (not to mention WoC) characters in the whole DC universe who isn’t 38-24-32?

ALSO, if you are going to cast an actress in the role who is under 200 lbs, at least make it the obvious choice – S. Epatha Effing Merkerson. Duh.

hoodies are very important to me

I love hoodies. They’re like sweatpants you can wear in public without shame.

This.

Reblog if you would date a bisexual person

Like if you wouldn’t because there is “too much competition”

Trying to prove a point to an asshole

Well… it’d be a bit hypocritical if I didn’t, since I kinda am one…

Isador & Ida Straus

The couple had been married for 41 years at the time of the [Titanic’s sinking]. They raised six children together, and were almost inseparable. On the rare occasion that they were apart, they wrote each other every day. They even celebrated their birthdays on the same day, although they were well apart from one another. During the sinking, Titanic’s officers pleaded with the 63 year old Ida to board a lifeboat and escape the disaster, but she repeatedly refused to leave her husband. Instead, she placed her maid in a lifeboat, taking her fur coat off and handing it to the maid while saying, “I won’t need this anymore”. At one point, she was convinced to enter one of the last two lifeboats, but jumped out as her husband walked away to rejoin him.

When last seen by witnesses, they were standing on deck, holding each other in a tight embrace. Their funeral drew some 6,000 mourners at Carnegie Hall.

A monument to them still stands in a Bronx cemetery, it’s inscription reads: “Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it.”

File under, “I was already twisted long before this aired.”

Sorry, Elisa. My childhood was already full of captivity/bondage fantasies and roleplay before you and your delicate wrists came along. You can blame April O’Neil and Princess Toadstool.

Sounds like it’s time to plant some seeds then, since shit is great fertilizer.

This is Princess Dead Pool. My 3 year old told me EXACTLY how she wanted the costume to look and walked me through the entire thing, bossing me around. It was so much fun.

Kick ass. 

OMG. I want to be that little girl when I grow up! So cool.

The evolution of girl gamers

Boy gamers are so self-centered they act as though women haven’t been playing video games for decades, and then act horrified when the female gamers who have always been there actually become visible and vocal about the rampant misogyny that has infected the gaming world. 

Like seriously, how entitled do you have to be that women saying “it sure would be nice if I wasn’t treated like shit while enjoying the games I play” translates to “I must be catered to” when video games have LITERALLY been catered to men for decades? 

It’s so cute how OP thinks the history of video games only goes back to 1995.  Son, I was playing video games literally a decade before that.  And consistently beating my big brother at them.

1995? Settle down, son, before I take the Atari paddle to you…

People that make these kind of images/statements and people that actually believe them are so dumb, and just want their 15 minutes of “I’m better than you” self-wankery on the Internet.

Some games are sexist, whether intentionally or not. Most often not. But it’s also true that some people take things too seriously or just like to complain and get offended, reading into things that weren’t intended. Personally, I’ve not seen any games that offended me as a woman. I find skimpy fantasy armor and jiggly super-physics boobs hilarious. I mean.. it’s just a game. But I’m not trying to get into that whole argument.

I will call total bullshit on the idea that girls only recently got into gaming and gaming culture, though. Absolute, utter, bullshit.

I’m a girl. I’ve been playing video games AT LEAST since 1988 when I was 4-5, if not earlier. My GRANDMA, also a girl, introduced my Mom and I to PC gaming with King’s Quest IV. Around the same time, my Dad gave me my first console, an NES, with Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt. I grew up playing it, quickly followed by many others, with my MOM, another girl, playing right along.

My aunts and female cousins all played video games with me and my male relatives growing up, (and more of the girls still play video games now in adulthood than the guys, I believe). Sometimes the girls won. Sometimes the guys won.

My best girlfriends had NESs and Segas, and whooped their brothers and our guy friends in stuff like Mortal Kombat.

A waitress at the local Moose Club my family frequented taught me how to play Frogger and Pac Man on the arcade cabinets.

No one I knew growing up ever thought to qualify or rank the wins and losses based on gender. No one I knew growing up ever thought someone, male or female, was a loser for playing video games. (I know it happens, and that sucks, but it wasn’t my experience.)

This is just my example of why this image and the ideas behind it are full of crap, but based on what I know of my friends, I KNOW I’m not the only girl who can provide similar instances of long-standing, proud, girl geekery.

So, quit making a fuss about what gender a gamer is. Just be a gamer.
