PINK APPRECIATION POST.

These are a few of my favorite pictures of her. #dreamgirl

Okay - just from a semiotics/art appreciation standpoint - 

Do you notice that in her images where she is topless, she is not sexualized in the way that scantily clad women often are in photography? She looks aggressive, or like she’s just standing around doing whatever. She does NOT look submissive or “come hither”. The expression in one of these is a “fuck you” expression and sometimes the expression is playful - but aggressively so.

She is posed the way that half-naked men are posed. NOT half-naked women.

So anyway, all I wanted to do was be in bands. That’s all I wanted to do. I was so bummed out because rock bands do not want girls in their band at all. There were just no girls in the band in Dayton, Ohio. Even Pollard from Guided By Voices would say ‘no bleeders.’ And he’s acting like he’s joking but everyone knows he’s not joking. ‘No bleeders in the band.’ So I always just wanted to be in bands and no one around here would play.

If anyone makes a joke like that my presence, I will leave, but not without leaving the string of expletives in my wake, possibly punctuated by my fists.

I have a theory on why a small segment of men who read comics send rape threats to women who write about comics. To put it simply, they think we’re destroying their masturbatory fantasies (literal or otherwise).

You may laugh but it’s quite possibly the source of all the hatemongering. They’re…

I haven’t read comics in about two months now. Aside from a few general pieces here and there, I haven’t written about comics in about a year. There are some things about the comics community that are pretty ugly. And those things are getting in the way of my enjoyment of comics. What’s…

Ali is spot on, as usual.

STOLE A KISS PRANK

I’m telling you right here, right now, if you kiss me without my consent I will destroy you. I will hit you so hard in your nether regions that your future children (should you unfortunately reproduce) will feel it.

For real though people don’t do this. This is sick and totally disgusting. Sexual assault isn’t a freakin’ joke or a prank.

Every day that Eli Bradley and Kate Bishop are not fighting crime together and making out is another day Marvel is just building wrath up inside of me to explode in Hulk-like fashion one day at Tom Brevoort
