i don’t get these new “cisphobic” blogs. why be so loud about something you’d actually never say to someone else’s face once you get off the computer? lol
Preeeetty sure that is the point?
It’s the whole Internet Tough Guy thing.
But in this case it’s not like an angry middle-class white kid who’s maybe gonna shoot people and be an asshole. It’s people who actually are subjected to horrible treatment by the people they dislike and they’re probably just joking or blowing off steam most of the time.
It’s immature and it’s annoying but it’s nothing to really worry about unless they start to get seriously threatening or something. They’re mad at the cis people who’ve hurt them and they’re making fun of the idea that they’re “just as bad” as people who actually try to oppress them.
“It was sort of the most basic, juvenile, immature thing I could possibly do, which was completely perfect,” she said. NSFW due to crude pickup lines and unflattering cartoon penises.
This was kinda… disappointing.
Like it’s a funny concept but “I drew them fat to insult them” is kinda really disappointing. Like, hey, thanks, I’m fat too and I’m glad that’s a worse thing to you than if I said creepy stuff to strangers. -_-
And the whole thing at the end where she basically says it’s women’s responsibility to just tough it out. Fuck that! We can’t all be artists and we can’t all be tough. We’re human beings. It’s our job to not be assholes to each other. It’s not women’s job to tolerate men being assholes. That shows such low expectations both for women AND men!
Powerpuff Girls was actually a show about a group of small children crushing the patriarchy and no one will convince me otherwise
Anyone who tries to convince you otherwise obviously wasn’t watching the same show.
Well. They kinda pulled a really awful strawfeminist thing in one episode. So they did something that younger feminists and younger women seem to have a tendency to do that basically sucks: promote feminist ideas because obviously but vigorously deny that you’re feminist and/or try to distance yourself from “THOSE feminists” and basically crap all over the feminists in the generation before you. Like make fun of anyone who actually dares to show anger or points out sexism directly.
It kinda pisses me off because I really liked the show but I can kind of see why with stuff like this young women who basically are feminists will deny it. Or why they’ll say “We already HAVE equality so we don’t need feminism anymore!”
Like if they didn’t have a single dad? If they had a nuclear family? Do you think that the dynamic would have been the same? That would have been awesome but honestly it seems like every other show from that era the dad worked and the mom didn’t and all of their interests and skills fit perfectly into traditional gender roles. Some of them were really progressive but a lot of them still weren’t.
Back in the early 1990’s, when anime was still called “Japanimation” and The Simpsons still featured Phil Hartman, no one could have conceived of the concept of Bartkira. Yet 23 years later, in Neo-Britain, artist Ryan Humphrey gave life to the unimaginable. His pages for the mind-bending crossover comic ignited a fire in the mind of comic artist James Harvey, who proposed the impossible:
Recreate every page of Akira using characters from The Simpsons.
It would take 768 artists, each contributing five pages, to redraw the full six volumes of Katsuhiro Otomo’s masterwork. A monumental group comic project unlike any other inspired working illustrators, comics professionals, and even some who had never drawn a comic in their lives. Now for the first time, the project that some have heralded as the greatest thing to ever happen to the Internet is here to destroy Floating World Comics.
Come to Floating World Comics at 6:00 p.m. on May 1st for the opening of the Bartkira gallery show and meet members of the Bartkira Committee. Floating World will also debut a limited edition book collecting 100 pages from the Bartkira project as well as a full color gallery section.
WHO: Frans Boukas, members of the Bartkira Committee
WHAT: Bartkira book release and art exhibit
WHEN: Thursday May. 1st, 6-10pm
WHERE: Floating World Comics, 400 NW Couch St
BARTKIRA GALLERY SHOW!!!
FLOATING WORLD COMICS, MAY 1ST!!!
Hey guys! I’m gonna be taking the trip up to Portland for this show! So if you’re in the area stop by and say hi!
…I just remembered how I used to call it Japanimation and I think I will start calling it that again.
"Many if not most feminists tend also to be socialists. This is because they’re the same ideology - the same narrative in which the end goal is a world populated by something besides actual humans."
uh oh. the libertarian 20-something guys have caught on to the fact that we support a full cyborg revolution.
Shit, they’re onto us!
Is it overreaching at all to get the impression that this person does not think that women and poor people are “actual humans”?
James Cameron is about to make me rich.
James Cameron just stole $20 from me.
More than that if you paid to see the movie.
These are so weird though. I worked in a casino once and there was a Plants vs. Zombies slot machine. Everything is a slot machine. I wanna say that I don’t get it but, like…. I actually thought I might play one if the theme was something I liked.
at williams i went to a lecture that was called “Feminists for life” (pro-life feminists) and it really opened my eyes
The gist of it was that abortions are the reflection that our society has failed to meet women’s needs
just think about all the resources that are out there for college students that become pregnant and WANT to keep the child vs an abortion
Pro life feminists don’t exist because you CANNOT be a feminist and be pro life. The two are in direct contradiction to each other.
What you sat and listened to was some misogynist fucks who want to take away women’s rights. Nice going. - Leigh
Even if all that bullshit were true, how does recognizing that lead to “let’s make abortion illegal”? Especially since banning it has no effect on rates of abortion, just making it riskier for women?
That also ignores that hardly any major anti-abortion organizations are doing anything to help poor mothers. Nope, in fact, they’re often supported by the same shitty politicians who erode the social safety net that so many of those mothers need.
"Pro-life" feminism, my ass. No matter how you slice it, it always involves ignoring the reality of abortion - as well as disregarding women’s bodily autonomy. Something that every feminist should hold dear.
Read this and actually open your eyes.
Actually, Feminists For Life oppose support for contraception, oppose abortion to save a woman’s life and even oppose acknowledging that rape is bad and should not happen.
They’re awful, awful people and horrible at being feminist.
