A bunch of reaction gifs…


…to some of the ridiculous things dudes have said to me this week, such as “men are objectified/raped/threatened/etc. too!”* and “why don’t you go make your own comics then?” and “that’s just what breasts look like!” and “I’m not creepy for ogling teen superheroes!”

*In retrospect, this should be just that men are objectified too (because seriously it’s SO not the same thing), although I do think the constant dudes popping in over and over to remind us that men are also raped and threatened is counter productive to the larger discussion of rape culture. Women are usually not the ones forgetting that men are raped and threatened. That’s part of the damage of the patriarchy. We all deserve better.

Comic Nirvana Lexington SC: Flag It


haterfreewednesdays:

I’ve only been there once, sometime about eight months ago, but they only had two employees and I believe the one I talked to was either the manager or the owner (or possibly both.) I’ve been to some wonderful comic shops, some where the owners were just using comics to pad their gaming or trading…

Holy cow this shop sounds awful.

I mean who didn’t fall a little in love with that character in that moment?

He’s a goofy looking dude but let’s be honest… I’ll reblog any Pitch Perfect gif ever.

#ITooAmHarvard is a project by Black students at Harvard to speak out about the racism that they experience in their daily lives as students. It will also be a play.

Pretty heartbreaking. These beautiful and bright students deserve so much better. Above I included some of the photographs (there’s many more) of Black women who are students there because I think it’s important to point out how racism is not only impacting Whites’ perception of their intelligence but also how White people approach their appearance as well, in gender-specific ways. This is heartbreaking to me albeit not surprising. The myth that working hard = happy payoff is a fairy tale. Racism is ubiquitous. 

I really wish them the best with their education and the ability to navigate these microaggressions and overt acts of racism. This stuff increases stereotype threat and impacts mental health and health which impacts performance. I want the best for them. Much love. 

That last woman looks like Antonia Thomas.

These women are goddesses.

Zero Harassment Tolerance. NOW.


annescherbina:

People can’t keep tolerating this shit. The goddamned rape threats. The harassment. All of the ways women in comics are subjected to bullshit because they are women. 

This should be addressed in outright vocal disgust by people. Lots of people. *Industry people*. It needs to become crystal clear that those who harass women are obviously reviled and shunned by the comics community.

Let’s be clear, while they are very real occurrences, I’m not talking “he said - she said”, “you can’t prove it” “we weren’t there” debates. That is a complicated issue to get loud about.

I’m talking about when you do see it. When you observe harassment in person or online, Call. That. Shit. Out., and make it clear that anyone who does it has lost your respect.

Did Facebook's Graffiti Artist Admit To Sexual Assault On His Podcast?


Trigger warning for rape and sexual assault.

TW: Rape

David Choe jokingly admits to being a “successful rapist”.

"It’s dangerous and it’s super self destructive. I’m at a place and there’s potential for a lawsuit…and she has given me no signs that she’s into me or that this is appropriate behavior. In my head I go "Do you care if I jerk off right now?" and it sounds so creepy in my head that I go I can’t say that out loud … So I go back to the chill method of you never ask first, you just do it, get in trouble and then pay the price later."

"…So I just start jerking off. So then her hands gets off my leg and she just stops … I go "Look I’m sorry I can’t help myself — can you just pretend like I’m not doing this and you continue with the massage?" And she’s like "All right" and she does  … I’m like "Can I touch your butt?" and I reach out and touch her butt and she pulls away. She doesn’t want me to touch her butt."

[…]

"… I say "Kiss it a little," she says "No, all the massage oil is on it" and I take the back of her head and I push it down on my d**k and she doesn’t do it. And I say "Open your mouth, open your mouth," and she does it and I start facef**king her."

Rape culture is literally admitting to raping somebody and publicizing it online because you’re that sure nothing will happen to you — and nothing does. 

Holy shit.

I think it’s weird that this was shared as an image without the credit to divalea who wrote it just yesterday as a text post. 

Yes, I thought an image was weird, but I figured the message was still valuable. I didn’t realize that divalea wasn’t credited until you pointed it out. 

Message is totally still valuable and the weird image thing is the responsibility of the original poster - just wanted to make sure I called out the credit as I saw it! :)
