Good news. If you want a shirt with a positive message Steven Finch and I came up with this for you. pic.twitter.com/PlGcedKTPb
Comics ARE for everyone.
Oh this is rad.
Okay, now this is a t-shirt I can get behind, where can I get one!
I really want one of these.
Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion:
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!

If you’re not threatened with rape, you’re told you’re not qualified, you’re not good enough, you’re not welcome here.
I wrote a piece for xoJane about the business of being a woman in comics. Trigger warning (and a warning that some of the threats are included in the article).
I know violence begets violence but nothing makes me want to reach through the computer and physically hurt another human like seeing/hearing my friends be threatened.
Fun Story: gimpnelly & I discussed me going to a con with her as a roommate this summer. My duties: Official coffee fetcher, bourbon buyer, and muscle. My resting bitch face is something to be feared.
I can’t wait until the Foglios start doing XXXenophile comics again, as we’re probably basically guaranteed some Girl Genius stories. ^_^
