A series of prototype posters I did to address verbal abuse.
I was kind enough to have willing models and a great photographer. Thank you for all your help.
casual reminder that just because your partner/familiy member/friend doesn’t hit you, emotional abuse is still abuse, and should be treated as such. It’s just as serious, folks.
Yup! I made a little tumblr of some verbally/emotionally abusive things my ex said to me. It hurts. It’s traumatic. It should be taken seriously.
Verbal abuse *is* abuse.
You know how it is, right, ladies? You know a guy for a while. You hang out with him. You do fun things with him—play video games, watch movies, go hiking, go to concerts. You invite him to your parties. You listen to his problems. You do all this because you think he wants to be your friend.
New goal- I wanna look like the girl in the orange. And kick lots of a$$.
And eat hamburgers while doing one armed push ups.
Oh Heinlein, always reminding us that all a woman needs to feel fulfilled is a baby and 3+ husbands…
It’s like this…
You’re fourteen and you’re reading Larry Niven’s “The Protector” because it’s your father’s favorite book and you like your father and you think he has good taste and the creature on the cover of the book looks interesting and you want to know what it’s about….
hi guys! this is a comic i made for a final in my comics in literature class. we had to do a research paper on a topic we’d discussed in class and then accompany it with a comic with a relevant subject. my paper was about hyper-sexualization of women in comic books, but i decided to broaden it out here as well as personalize it and make myself the subject and discuss something i’ve been subjected to in the convention circuit and on the internet as well as thousands of other women, as well as give a cue to thought about how the comic book industry as well as the video game industry and even just media in general (all of which are male dominated) push such ridiculous pressures onto girls and women.
also, it feels kind of silly to have to add this since i hope it’s obvious, but i am very aware that there are men that don’t subscribe to this attitude, and am incredibly grateful that these issues are brought to light to people other than the ones that are subjected to it.
anyway haha i have literally been staring at this for 9 hours i don’t even know which direction is up anymore. thanks for reading!!!
I now have three episodes of Doctor Who stacked up on my TiVo…if Defiance keeps up at even half the level of where it started I might be ready to let go. Well that plus seeing that the DW fandom seems to have been reduced to comparing Easter eggs in current episodes with stuff from Classic Who and basically saying “oh so pretty”…yeah not a lot of hope left.
I think I got to the Dinos in Space episode for last… season? Half season? Just haven’t had the heart to catch up on it. Instead, catching up on Classic eps and getting acquainted with Big Finish Audio. Other friends of mine are happy and excited, and I just don’t see what they see anymore :-( (Under Doc #5’s tenure, apparently more episodes passed the Bechdel Test than since the series’ face-lift.)
Also the Tomorrow People in both classic series and BFA, because apparently the writer of Dawson’s Creek is working on a new pilot for that series. Oh, my childhood. *geek angst*
Rules to live by.
“Girls, if boys say something that’s not funny, you don’t have to laugh.”
Excuse me while I gush. Amy Poehler is beautiful, smart, successful, and one of the funniest people I can imagine.
Also, yay for Amy Poehler for being funnier than her her husband! (at least in my opinion)
Inspired by Anita Sarkeesian’s Video Game Tropes vs Women, I wanted to pitch a Zelda game where Zelda herself was the hero, rescuing a Prince Link.
Clockwork Empire is set 2,000 years after Twilight Princess, and is not a reboot, but simply another iteration in the Zelda franchise. It just so happens that in this case, Zelda is the protagonist. I’m a very big Zelda fan, and worked hard to draw from key elements in the continuity and mythos.
This concept work is meant to show that Zelda as a game protagonist can be both compelling and true to the franchise, while bringing new and dynamic game elements that go farther than being a simple gender swap.
Hope you like it!
now the only game i ever want to play.
