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).
Let’s give some attention to the woman actually dealing with these threats of violence and not just all the men writing about it, hey?
It is important that men in our industry have taken a stand about this issue, and I appreciative and am thrilled about it, make no mistake. I just want to make sure we’re listening to the women dealing with sexism every single day, too.
The script for the next @PortsCenter was finished last night, but I just did some touch-ups on my phone whole riding the bus. What an age we live in.
I’m going to be horribly tempted to gif this moment of the episode and Tumblr it as “Fun Fact: This was ad-libbed by Ben.”
I never thought I could love a website as much as Cuddly Cavies.
But I didn’t know about IrresistibleHorseHoods.com yet.
for some reason i thought both of these were the same post and i sat for awhile trying to figure out which ice cream face was the weak bitch
BUT NOW? I KNOW DIFFERENT. Look what arrived in the mail ANONYMOUSLY.
This is no fake. This is a real book that someone spent some amount of real money to have sent to me from Amazon, no note included.
YOU SEE, RYAN? YOU SEE WHAT YOU HAVE WROUGHT???
This book — which, I must repeat for emphasis, is a real thing, like someone had the idea for it (ha ha!) but then didn’t realize that the idea is the entire joke but instead somehow decided they would take on the actual human calorie-burning task of writing 126 pages of — really gives you a smoke-the-whole-pack quantity of what is indisputably people’s favorite parts of LOLcats: the nigh-nonsensical text!
And it’s not just Bible stories. It’s The Bible. It’s abridged to include just the most famous bits (Adam & Eve, Noah, Joseph & his brothers, King David, parts of the Gospels and Acts, and as seen above, Daniel in the lion’s den), but those parts are reproduced VERSE BY VERSE so you do indeed have to slog through “So Daniel liev long an prospar frum Darius to teh othur King, Cyrus, hoo wus a Persian kitteh.”
This is a concept book. This is a book that people give to one another as a joke, but nobody reads. The corporate buyer for the bookstore didn’t read it. The person buying it for a friend’s birthday didn’t read it. The friend who got it as a gift didn’t read it. I’ll bet the typesetter only read as little of it as she could get away with.
It was regifted a dozen times and every single one of those people did what I did and/or will do, which is:
- realize what it was
- instantly get all the enjoyment out of that concept that one will ever get
- flip through it
- realize that it goes ON AND ON AND ON
- see that this is a glimpse into a madness best avoided
- quietly close it and put it on a shelf
- give it to another unsuspecting friend so it’s out of one’s own life
Wait, what’s that? Sorry…just a second…
You say that the author/war criminal of this book, Martin Grondin, set up a wiki site in 2007 to translate the Bible into LOLcat, and that the book actually came along later, printing what had already been written?
Well, then I say that this publisher will probably LOVE my new project, “View Source” (working title), which takes popular websites and just reprints the raw HTML from their homepage. The work’s already done!!!
Confidential to whoever sent this to me: if I ever find out who you are, rest assured we will be enemies forever
Ace Attorney’s new assistant: Mikotoba Susato ⊟
I mean, I guess it’s no surprise that the assistant in the Meiji-era Dai Gyakuten Saiban would be a woman in traditional dress, but here she is, Naruhodou Ryuunosuke’s assistant. According to Court-Records, she’s a “lover of foreign detectives and a progressive dreamer!”
The color scheme of her outfit also seems like a callback to Maya Fey’s look, though she doesn’t seem to be related to the Fey/Ayasato clan of spirit mediums.
"though she doesn’t seem to be related to the Fey/Ayasato clan of spirit mediums." Dammit, I had hope and already it’s (potentially) been taken away. Okay, okay, new hope: Prosecutor is ancestor of Edgeworth. Aaaaaand… Go!
NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY
This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.
IF YOU ARE SEXUALLY HARRASSED YOU REPORT THAT SHIT
That is AWFUL. Please report it when you’re sexually harassed. If not for yourself, to try to protect future victims.
It’s from 2011 but the fact that it was written at all is horrible fucking bullshit. Tell me someone got fired for this.
