The Cost for Women Working in Comics

divalea:

DEAR MEN IN COMICS:

THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO HIGH.

You need to help lower the price of women doing business in comics and in comics fandom to only the hard work. Not the hard work plus ducking threats online and off of violence, dodging groping, inappropriate advances, joking at the expense of the fat girl, the not “hot” girl, picking up and carrying around the short girl, creepshotting the cosplayer, stalking the professional. 

You know, sexism. Violence. Attacks intended to create doubt and fear.

THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO DAMN HIGH.

CALL OUT OTHER GUYS. If women doing this for themselves really really worked, I wouldn’t have to be saying this. 
Start culling guys from your personal and professional circles that are bad citizens, that you have to apologize for.

CALL OUT MISOGYNY AND SEXISM. Intervene. Speak up. Vocally reject things like the “Big Cans” promotion at NYCC on your blogs, Twitter, tumblr, Facebook, right then and there when it happens.

THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO DAMN HIGH. We’ve been paying and paying. I’ve paid with my health, self-esteem, and sense of safety. Other women have paid more.

THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO FUCKING HIGH. 
Men, help us lower that cost so it’s the SAME AS YOURS: hard work.

(Please share the hell out of this>)

NO PHOTOSET HAS MADE ME HAPPIER.

MY FAVORITE PHOTOSET IS BACK

YES IT’S BACK

I just got a PM in my fanfiction.net account, from someone who told me they had written a rec of one of my fics in their blog. How sweet, I thought. i went to read the review, and after the first sentence praising my fanarts, the rest of the review proceeded to criticise my sentence structure (because I’m not an English mother tongue, sorry) and then called my story “a snoozer.”

Well, of course everyone is entitled their opinions, and it’s not as if I’ve liked every single fic I read. But I don’t understand why take the time to send me a link to your criticism. It’s a fic that’s been over for three years now, it’s not like I’m going to correct it.

Operation Protect the Lannister and Baratheon Babies 2k14

Featuring

  • Shireen Baratheon, the one true Baratheon heir, adorable and lonely and at the end of the world with a mad clown and a bunch of religious fanatics [also a ticking greyscale timebomb]
  • Myrcella Baratheon, the heir to the Lannister-held Iron Throne by Dornish custom and queen of cyvasse [used in ploys by other people, to the detriment of her ears]
  • Tommen Baratheon, the First of His Name and holder of the Iron Throne, King of Kittens and Slayer of Beets [probably going to have to die]

[why, George, WHY]

I'm working on a script for a comic I'm creating. My cast is primarily female and I'm worried I have too many women. When you're writing CM (since your cast is largely female) do you ever think, "there should be a guy in here somewhere?" And if so, what do you do? I'm really comfortable writing women, and I love my characters... I see no need for anymore men in the story at this time, but I'm afraid it won't appeal to a large enough audience. 3 prominent women to 1 supporting male? Too much?

>too many women

I’m sorry, I don’t know what those words mean in that order. 

>do you ever think, “there should be a guy in here somewhere?”

No. 

>I see no need for anymore men in the story at this time, but I’m afraid it won’t appeal to a large enough audience.

STOP IT. 

You’re trying to sell a thing you haven’t even written yet.  Write the story you would write if you were just going to put it in a drawer.  

Write the story you want to read. 

Io aggiungerei solo che oggi sono così irritata che sto ascoltando tutta la cartella di Rino Gaetano lasciatami su questo computer da un mio esimio collega.

Last week I wrote this piece for Comic Book Resources about the new Teen Titans #1 cover. The point of the piece was hey, there’s a broad demographic DC *could* be hitting with this book but the cover is certainly not made for that potential demographic. Instead, it’s more of…
