George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.
I’m tired of reading angst-filled posts about people feeling ugly or worthless.
I’m fucking gorgeous and perfect and shut the fuck up because you are too.
I wish it were that easy, but oddly enough, telling someone to shut the fuck up and that they’re wrong doesn’t actually make them feel less worthless.
I think it has to do with telling yourself your worthless eventually becoming fact in your head. It’s toxic and makes yourself feel worse about yourself.
I sincerely believe I am an awesome person but knowing that still does not do anything for my depression. Mental health often has nothing to do with positive (or negative) affirmations.
I just had a discussion with a nice, but I think very misinformed guy on Twitter, where he said that the reason so few comics are written by women (I guess he doesn’t count alt comics, webcomics, mini comics and manga as ‘comics’) was because women simply are not interested in writing them.
So I am checking here and on Twitter.
If you identify as female, and you have some aspirations, even far-off ones, to make comics of some kind, can you post here and let us know?
I just am curious if there is a genuine paucity of women wanting into the comics creation business.
Yo here! Last month I finally finished a Sherlock fancomic of 236 pages, I’m doing another one and writing a third and fourth one.
Ah! also professional comic book artist here, who helps her editor in writing some of the stories we do too!
You can tell that man to shut up.
I’ve wanted to be involved with comics since I first fell in love with the X-men when I was little. I have two projects in the works.
I’ve wanted to work in comics since I was 9 years old. I’m 28 now. In the past ten years, I’ve written and illustrated close to 3,000 pages of comics. I will do this until I die.
I’ve wanted to make comics since I was ten. I’m 33, and still trying to get it together enough to actually do it.
There’s a huge wikipedia list of women comic creators I found with the keywords, “women in comics.” Just because we aren’t famous doesn’t mean we’re hard to find. It is egregious you have to go looking, and that random imbeciles think women in comics are basically mutants. Tell that fool to do his hypothesis testing himself. Nobody owes him a damn thing.
How is it that I feel safer with my tumblr folks than I do with my friends on fb?
thirty days of faces, day five
i don’t know how it got to looking like a chimp
