Yay thanks for the rec! (Also boo fail… ;D)
I love that fic more each time I read it. Because MYKA <3 <3 <3
And boo fail indeed. I am apparently having a ranty meta week. All the posts that I’ve been wanting to make for a while are hovering. :P
I’ve had multiple requests from people to make this post rebloggable. To be honest, I wasn’t even sure I was going to bother because continuing to talk about this is just so darn exhausting at this point. It’s very easy to feel like, “What’s the point?” When it comes to DC Comics and issues of gender…I think we are all feeling more than a little drained, tired and apathetic at this point in time. It’s tough to even find the energy to have the conversation because no matter what we do or say there are always people there ready to shout us down, tell us to be quiet and silence us. I know some really brilliant women who just flat out don’t have the strength to engage anymore and frankly, I’m nearing that point myself.
I want to make something very clear though: The writer of the the new Superman/Wonder Woman book, Charles Soule is a nice man and a good writer who was hired to do a job. I don’t particularly agree with some of the things he has said in his recent blog post (in fact, I think he’s missing some really key points) but there are ways to discuss these things with him and others while being civil. Does that mean you can’t debate? Argue? Challenge? Of course you can. But if you are going to engage with this man please keep that in mind. You can challenge and you can disagree but cursing at this man is something I want no part of. If you link my post to him with curse words, I want nothing to do with you.
Here we go kids…
also I think everyone’s missing the most important thing from last night’s warehouse
steve apparently thinks a meatloaf pan of lasagna is enough to feed six people
I think that pan was just for Pete (there was another in the oven for the rest of them)
When Strangers Click, a 2011 documentary about online dating.
It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” It also reminds me of something written by one of the mods of Sex Worker Problems: “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
I mean, it’s just true.
“Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
That’s it. That’s it right there.
