So one day a dwarf is talking to a human and finally realizes that when humans say woman, they generally mean “person who is theoretically capable of childbirth” because for whatever reason, humans assign social expectations based genital differences….

Extra relevant because as a person who makes things and has defined herself so much by enforced gender norms, this kind of thinking is world-changing. 

Now I know what being liberated feels like; like being extremely happy and very angry at the same time

'I can’t recall ever reading a novel where a couple had sex on a horse but I have read a book where they had sex on a camel.  That just gave a new meaning to “hump day”.'

Guys if you don’t subscribe to this blog you need to do that RIGHT NOW; I’ve been reading it for years and it is always good.

Since I’ve been sort of …’coming out’ about this feels like the wrong phrase, since I’ve never tried to hide it but it’s come up a few times: Hi, I’m Hazel, I started reading Marvel comics 11 months ago, after seeing the Thor film.

This surprises people, primarily because I can bang on about…

Ah, the good old days on the NZ Comics Message Board

sfuffaboutcomics:

I was just searching my inbox for something and I found the exchange from 2009 when a colleague mused “why does Frank Miller hate women?” and I immediately typed back an unstructured rant in the space of like five minutes (Frank Miller is kind of my berserk button). It is copy-pasted here for your amusement.

I read this motherfucker when I was eight, and apparently I instinctively self-censored so much of the Dark Knight Returns that all I remembered of the plot until high school was that Batman was old, people punched each other a lot, someone got their throat ripped out with someone else’s teeth, and I really, really wanted to be Carrie.

This week, Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, gave an interview to Movies.com where he discussed future plans for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, briefly touching on the topic of a female superhero franchise. He said Marvel has no specific plans to launch one.

“Frankly, you can look at what Jane Foster does in [Thor: The Dark World], look at Pepper Potts literally saving the day and defeating the bad guy in Iron Man 3, and I’d say we already have great female heroes that are showcased and play major roles in our universe now. Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as you will see, features Black Widow in her biggest role yet in any of our films. In terms of a solo stand-alone female hero, I’m not sure when that will be. We make two movies a year, we’ve planned through 2015 and we have some ideas of what we’re doing in 2016 and 2017, so we’ll see what happens.”

Unfortunately, Marvel don’t have much competition when it comes to female characters. DC Comics may still own the rights to the most famous superheroine of them all, but they’ve repeatedly failed to bring Wonder Woman to the big screen, instead opting for a TV show that fizzled out in 2012 after one lackluster episode. Plus, DC are not known for their great attitude toward diversity. With stand-out characters like Black Widow, and things like Jane Foster’s tie-in mentoring program for girls in science and technology, Marvel can’t help but look good by comparison. 

But when Feige replies to the female superhero question by pointing out the importance of characters like Jane Foster and Pepper Potts, he’s accidentally highlighting the MCU’s failures. He’s essentially boasting about managing the absolute bare minimum to depict female characters like functional human beings. Yes, Pepper Potts and Black Widow are well-written characters with important roles… but so are at least four or five male characters in each of their respective movies. This isn’t an achievement. It’s a basic expectation for any film that isn’t completely terrible. [READ MORE]

This makes me want to make some fucking heroines already. I haven’t for ages because I was afraid to screw it up but shit, I can’t do worse than what is already happening everywhere. And if I am afraid I am screwing it up, I will come ask you guys. deal? 

let’s do this.

Revenge fantasy

The more I read Jezebel, the more depressed I get. Every time I read a story about a school where a girl was raped and later committed suicide, or accused her rapists and got punished for it, or got her privacy invaded and then was expelled for indecency while—IN ALL CASES—the guys got away scot-free, I start entertaining this revenge fantasy:

Line up the rapists and the school admin in the center of an arena, surrounded by female students. Give each female student a hardcover copy of The Scarlet Letter, Tess of the D’Urbervilles, and Anna Karenina. Then have them throw the books at the perps until there are either no more books, or no more perps.

Please ignore these ravings of an unhinged mind. This is a REVENGE FANTASY, and in no way provides an answer or even a valid opinion. I’m just sad, tired and pissed, and wanted to make myself feel better.

Feeling depressed or angry today? What’s your revenge fantasy?
