Anonymous asked: the reason most people don't find people with "chub" or beards "attractive" is because most of us work hard to take care of ourselves... whether it's working out, eating right, shaving/keeping up with my hygiene. so if I work hard to make sure I feel confident and approachable and presentable and I prefer someone who is the same.. well then I have all the right in the world to have that preference. why would you be bothered that some people have a preference that is not you or what you like?

hush /eyeroll/

Um…beards… having a beard is not an issue of hygiene. Simply having body hair (regardless of gender) is NOT bad hygiene.

My pal Landry (as I understand it, please correct me if I’m wrong here) snapped that picture at WonderCon and — Yeah.

I don’t imagine anyone’s waiting on bated breath for the moral authority of the guy who wrote Morbius: The Living Vampire, I’m pretty…

I hate coffee. I love fan girls. This shirt sucks.

but men

So, apparently it is a thing for guys to be pointing out that “men get raped too!”

I bet those guys do not appreciate rape jokes and rape threats like the guys using them to “make a point” do.

I think this proves the “Distraction Defense” accurate.

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)

And they act like it must be an isolated case because they’ve never heard about it before (despite that women are constantly writing and talking about it) and therefore it doesn’t need to be addressed.  Part of the amnesia is that if you dismiss every instance or discussion about it as “an isolated incident” or “just some bad seeds”, then in your mind, there will never be a problem that has to be addressed.

(via ami-angelwings)

Simply put…those bad seeds took root long ago and are trying to constantly choke out the good seeds. Time to weed the garden. Time to pull the sickly trees from the the ground down to the roots. Time to obliterate the bad seeds and their toxic effects.

DEAR MEN IN COMICS:

THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO HIGH.

You need to help lower the price of women doing business in comics and in comics fandom to only the hard work. Not the hard work plus ducking threats online and off of violence, dodging groping, inappropriate advances, joking at the expense of the fat girl, the not “hot” girl, picking up and carrying around the short girl, creepshotting the cosplayer, stalking the professional. 

You know, sexism. Violence. Attacks intended to create doubt and fear.

THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO DAMN HIGH.

CALL OUT OTHER GUYS. If women doing this for themselves really really worked, I wouldn’t have to be saying this. 
Start culling guys from your personal and professional circles that are bad citizens, that you have to apologize for.

CALL OUT MISOGYNY AND SEXISM. Intervene. Speak up. Vocally reject things like the “Big Cans” promotion at NYCC on your blogs, Twitter, tumblr, Facebook, right then and there when it happens.

THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO DAMN HIGH. We’ve been paying and paying. I’ve paid with my health, self-esteem, and sense of safety. Other women have paid more.

THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO FUCKING HIGH. 
Men, help us lower that cost so it’s the SAME AS YOURS: hard work.

(Please share the hell out of this>)

Sharin’.
