Yay old Shadowcat costume :-D
Yes, she’s Shadowcat. Deal with it.

Let it go people.
Let. it. go.
It’s time, Internet. It’s time to find a new hill to fight and die on.
Seems like a good time for this.
I mean, also this. Because who cares.
Also are people legit feelings-hurt upset over this?
It’s so dumb, if you ever see me arguing or caring either way (as I just did a few minutes ago), know that I infinitely don’t care/think this is hilarious.

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.
I was on conference calls all day today, which I sometimes find is a very good time to mess around in illustrator.
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*
Well let me tell you, it was quite the pragmatic purchase. It has endless uses in my morning routine.
Such as making the bed:
Getting things off high shelves:
Reaching the remote when it’s too far away:
And assisting me when I ran out of toilet paper:
I don’t know how I survived life without it.
My feelings for a while, put into more in-depth mode. TBBT is a show *about* geeks, not *for* geeks.
On the other hand, since I’m home sick today, I’ve decided its time I finally watched Community. For hours on end. If I can find it.
I’ve been meaning to post something about The Big Bang Theory for a while now but it’s taken me ‘till now to really understand what it is about the show that makes me uncomfortable. I’m not exactly a believer in the whole “only write about the things you like, don’t trash the things you don’t” trend which seems to be plaguing comments sections in negative articles lately, but I wanted to be able to really examine why I don’t like TBBT rather than just slagging it off. My main questions being - Why don’t I like this anymore? Why do I feel uncomfortable watching it? And why do I get so annoyed when I see people sing its praises online? The thing which really sparked this post was seeing a raft of comments on Facebook, below the last round of voting in Television Without Pity’s Tubey Awards, claiming The Big Bang Theory to be “the best comedy on TV”. This made me angry so instead of posting an impulsive comment calling out their bad taste which I’d probably regret later, I decided to really analyse why seeing comments like that made me so mad when previously, although I didn’t really love the show, I’d never considered myself as disliking The Big Bang Theory.
Hell, I even have season one on dvd, it’s sitting right between Battlestar Galactica and Bored To Death in my alphabetised collection.
And here, I think, is where my problem with The Big Bang Theory lies…
