Just because someone’s parents are together, someone has a nice house, has nice clothes, isn’t poor, eats every day and has a loving family doesn’t mean they can’t be depressed, have anxiety, an eating disorder, self harm issues, or any other problem.
THIS. I WISH I COULD FUCKING EMPHASIZE THIS SO HARD.
Mental disorders don’t care about your situation in life
CAUGHT ON TAPE: LEVITATING GIRL
A guy in Russia was strolling through the woods, when he sees a little girl in red just hovering in the middle of the air. He gasps out loud, and the two spot him. The little girl descends down, and the pair run away.
What the hell?
Seriously. What the fuck?
is there umm… a umm… source?
my friend started his oral presentation today by ripping up his notes and saying ‘i brought notes in today, but i’m not going to use them’ and everyone was so surprised
a few seconds later he pulled out different notes in his pocket and said ‘i’ll be using these instead’ and i lost my shit
Every damn year.
I need to learn how to draw a decent Batman pic.
So what you’re trying to say is that
womenpeople prefer well-drawn pictures of their favorite superheroes over really shitty indie comics about boobs?
Are we supposed to feel sorry for the person whose humor comic featuring a disembodied pair of breasts on the cover is getting passed over?
this feels like it should be a parody but it isnt and that’s hilarious
maybe try not being sexist unfunny douchelords next time
HEY, WE DO A HUMOR COMIC ABOUT [SOMETHING THAT LOOKS EXTREMELY SEXIST] HEY WHERE ARE YOU GOING
No, no way is this a serious complaint (I said to myself). No one’s that un-self aware. This has got to be a parody about gross “indie” comics skeeving up the con atmosphere, and the schadenfreude we’re totally intended to feel at their failure.
So I went to the OP’s tumblr to check context and.
This was just supposed to be a comic about how hard it can be for the unknowns to find their audience. Anything else you see is your own interpretation of the page.
They are serious.
That is more hilarious than any punchline actually in the comic. I’m honestly crying with laughter right now.
wow cry me a THOUSAND tears about how hard it is for white men to get into the comics industry by drawing tits
I can think of very few female comic readers who wouldn’t choose the Green Lantern image over a comic with nothing but boobs on the cover :P If the OP wants female fans as their target audience, they need to make some changes or expect not to get any of their money.
Oh god… he edited the original post to “Apologies to anyone offended by the cover.” … Not “Apologies, I made a really gross and alienating statement.” He does this in another post, as well trying to justify it all. /facedesk
Wow, this is a perfect example of the creative blind spots I’ve been talking about. This comic was not intended to be satire. The OP completely missed the significance of having just a pair of boobs on a magazine cover and its effect on a female audience. In the OP’s own words:
“In the original script I said there was a comic being held up without specifying what was on it, so Paul just drew a pair of breasts and I put the page up because at the time I saw nothing wrong with it, and when I put it on tumblr, the unfortunate implications never crossed my mind until they were pointed out to me.”
There was no sexist intent behind this comic (or clever expose of sexism), but this clearly illustrates how so much offensive content gets released in comics, games, and other media. It looks okay to the people making it.
This is why we need women, PoC, and LGBT people in industries that are dominated by one POV. We need to start viewing content through more than one lens.
I talk about it at length HERE.
the comments on this post just make me sad
Wow this is embarrassing to read…
*sees boobs* OMGAFAS THIS IS SO SEXIST I CAN’T BELIEVE IT CHECK YOUR PRIVLEDGE ARTIST
come on, seriously, if the “It’s hard to find an audience as an unknown” wasn’t insanely obvious then this site seems to have a problem god damn
