Fact only I my care about. One year ago today Josh Hamilton hit four home runs and had 8 RBI’s in a single game. 30 plus games in to the season this year and a 125 million dollar contract later he has 2 home runs and 9 RBI’s total for the whole year.

Dear awful people, gather ‘round, because Mama’s got something important to say.
Knock it the hell off. Stop making queer people in hetero relationships feel uncomfortable in queer spaces. Stop contributing to bi invisibility by insisting that queer girls who date boys are “straight now.” Stop acting like the person someone dates today negates the entire rest of their sexual and romantic history. Stop pressuring bisexual people back into the closet by ignoring the reality of their identities. Stop treating sexual orientation as an either/or. Stop policing other people’s sexuality. Stop being just as bad as the conservatives who ostracize people for being gay. We’re supposed to be the good guys, remember?
Seriously. The amount of hostility in my local queer/gay community for bisexual folks is astounding. Because I’ve been involved with men and women doesn’t mean I’m a slut, or a frivolous person, or that I’m any less than anyone else in the bar.
Oh gosh, so relevant to me and my husband. Because we’re together, we’re just special snowflakes.
hi guys! this is a comic i made for a final in my comics in literature class. we had to do a research paper on a topic we’d discussed in class and then accompany it with a comic with a relevant subject. my paper was about hyper-sexualization of women in comic books, but i decided to broaden it out here as well as personalize it and make myself the subject and discuss something i’ve been subjected to in the convention circuit and on the internet as well as thousands of other women, as well as give a cue to thought about how the comic book industry as well as the video game industry and even just media in general (all of which are male dominated) push such ridiculous pressures onto girls and women.
also, it feels kind of silly to have to add this since i hope it’s obvious, but i am very aware that there are men that don’t subscribe to this attitude, and am incredibly grateful that these issues are brought to light to people other than the ones that are subjected to it.
anyway haha i have literally been staring at this for 9 hours i don’t even know which direction is up anymore. thanks for reading!!
Thank you for this.
I love comics but I’m a Indie guy ie Fantagraphics etc No Marvel or DC in my collection and this is one of the many reasons why.
I tell people that all the time.
Don’t fall in love either. Shits bogus
