I found a dinosaur at the thrift store today. I think it’s a speaker, but I haven’t tested it out yet.
So once upon a time I designed a can koozie for Bomb the Music Industry because of what amounted to a bit of a miscommunication on whoever’s part, and then it turns out they don’t do merch, so, ultimately, I made what I’m gonna chalk up as a piece of Bomb the Music Industry fan art. This is exactly what Tumblr’s for, so here you go.
CLARIFICATION: People keep correcting me on my “they don’t do merch” comment. I meant they don’t do THIS merch. It’s a long story. Actually, it’s a very short story, but a very, very uninteresting one, so don’t worry about it.
FAKE GEEK GUYS: A MESSAGE TO MEN ABOUT SEXUAL HARASSMENT
By Andy Khouri
“I think this woman is wrong about something on the Internet. Clearly my best course of action is to threaten her with rape.”
That’s crazy talk, right? So why does it happen all the time?
Honest question, dudes.
That women are harassed online is not news. That women in comics and the broader fandom cultures are harassed online is not news. That these women are routinely transmitted anonymous messages describing graphic sexual violence perpetrated upon them for transgressions as grave as not liking a thing… that is actually news to me, and it’s probably news to a lot of you guys reading this.
So what do we do about it?
This is important.
There has only been five female characters comfirmed playable compared to fifteen male characters.
I’m amazed at those exact numbers because 33% is the point where men will start thinking there’s a majority of women in a group.
Don’t overdo it.
