"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.

This is incredibly relevant to what I have been thinking.  All the articles from guys that have been circulating are good. I’m so glad they are finally starting to realize that this problem is insidious and awful and disgusting, but with each article I’m reading the same thing.  None of them know that this has been happening.  None of them knew the problem was so bad.  

Where have they been?  What have they been listening to?  What cons have they been at and what articles do they read?  

Nothing that has happened in the last couple of days is anything new and it’s a little bit shameful people are acting like these are all amazing revelations.

And They Lived Heterosexually Ever After: Why I’m Not Recapping Once Upon A Time Anymore


And They Lived Heterosexually Ever After: Why I’m Not Recapping Once Upon A Time Anymore


There have been some inquiries as to where the Once Upon A Time recaps have gone. This post is meant to answer those inquiries and address something that I believe is of grave concern to our community, a terrible disease lurking in the bones of many a piece of media. Yes, my dear friends, I speak of queerbaiting.

Fashion Finds for the Trendy Geek — Captain Marvel

What can we say — if she wears the star, our hearts are set. Nothing gets us going like a face turned toward the stars and a thirst for more, and the lady legacy of all Captains Marvel will always take us there. Nothing says superheroic cosmic style like colourblocking and particular gold accents, and we’re happy to do a bit of both.

Star Ring  +  “Higher Faster Further More” Tee  +  Wide Cuff

Boatneck Sweater  +  Kate Spade Dress  +  Open Star Necklace

Rosalyn Boot  +  Bomber Jacket   +  Blue Galaxy Leggings

—- always wears the star in our hearts

I need all the things

"It took a special kind of guts to be a fuck up as a woman, I thought. To say to hell with being the nice girl, the responsible one, the one who makes sure the man takes care of himself and eats properly and doesn’t take too many drugs. To be just as nihilistic and self-destructive as a man, knowing all along that you’ll get crucified for it, because somehow, the world will make everything your fault. He’ll be a martyr, and you’ll be a succubus. He’ll be a genius and you’ll be a groupie, He’ll be a hero, and you’ll be an ugly fat crack whore who deserves to die."

You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).

Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.

Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.

Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?

People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
