girls have been reading comics even since the 1940’s

so i’m tired of these “fake geek girl” arguments.

and i’m tired of people saying that comics are finally reaching a female audience, as if it hasn’t always been that way.

Comics were certainly a dominant mass media with a massive readership among both boys and girls in the 1940s, although post-WWII comics pretty steadily shed and alienated female readers. I’m really happy that things are coming back around to a more inclusive and creative and experimental stage right now.

On the one hand: yes, girls have been reading comics since the medium began and women have been working in comics just as long. There’s no era of comics where there were NO women reading or making comics. 

On the other hand: the comics industry has shifted and changed so much, particularly post-Wertham and post-direct market and post-collector’s craze of the 1990s (each in a different way that nonetheless continuously excluded women) that I think people are totally warranted in saying that comics are finally reaching a female audience - we’ve gone nearly 50 years without any growth in that arena. A creator like Raina Telgemeier whose books sell like *crazy* is reaching an audience that has rarely been reached before. Let’s not diminish the power of THAT.

BREAKING: Peaceful Protesters In Ferguson MO Get Pummeled By Police Officers After Their Chief Marched With Protesters

  • I think the PD is aggressively attacking protestors because they assume & no longer gives a damn
  • Chief Jackson did this. His officers did this. Women were attacked. He said he was marching with us. Lies..he set us up
  • And Chief Jackson didn’t do ANYTHING to stop the attacks and mayhem. DID NOTHING!
  • LOTS of cops out right now. A short clash with the police after arrests were made. Live Feed Here:

This can’t be allowed to vanish from the public eye.

Here are some basics on herd immunity, and here is some more technical research if you’re interested in the details! 

Cute cartoon and good (basic) information on zombies. Er, vaccination.

Rape is the only crime on the books for which arguing that the temptation to commit it was too clear and obvious to resist is treated as a defence. For every other crime, we call that a confession.
