Hi Megan, your comic 'Heffalump Country' is all over my various social media feeds today. I've found the t-shirt at MySoti, is there anywhere I might be able to buy a print? Thanks! -mat

The moment I realize a dumb little doodle I did three years ago, based on a conversation with my roommates, that has 56 notes on my own tumblr has suddenly popped up all over the web, and while my initials are on it, there’s no kind of track back to me because it was a fast little joke I didn’t think had any longevity but silly me. Also, I don’t have prints of it because I drew it really low res since it wasn’t something I was never intending to do anything with it. You can get the shirt here for now, but I might actually take it down.

Want ALL OF THESE on my face

I think I like to ship David Willis’s characters because I am confident he’s not just gonna queer bait us but never deliver. I’ve become so wary about getting my hopes up with most media. Even if a particular pairing in Willis’s work doesn’t end up together, someone else does. I get all kinds of pleasant surprises all the time. I can truly relax and just enjoy things without fretting.


Dumbing of Age: Thoughts

I apparently only ever ship things in Willis comics. Add one more to the pile.

anyone concerning themselves with trying to prove that michael brown shoplifted from a convenience store believes that black people should be executed extrajudicially for petty theft

Same with “Oh, but he had marijuana in his system,” and I’m hearing it from people who I KNOW have smoked weed. Smoking weed is not a capital offense. Shoplifting is not a capital offense. Being black, apparently, is.


Going on right now in Ferguson: Police are raiding a church that has been stocked with medical supplies, food, and tear gas recovery kits for community members engaging in protests. This cannot be allowed to continue.

Stand up, speak out. 

Last tweet sums it up perfectly. Police are doing the raiding and looting. And as someone who donated my small part of supplies, I am even more furious than I would have been anyway, which was already pretty damn high.

But don’t let this stop you from donating more supplies. They need it now more than ever.



Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Act: ‘Null and Void’

In a victory activists were unsure they’d get, Uganda’s Constitutional Court overturned the country’s draconian Anti-Homosexuality Act today, declaring the anti-LGBT law “null and void” because of a parliamentary technicality in how it was passed.  

The court determined that when members of Parliament passed the law in December 2013, Speaker Rebecca Kadaga had not established quorum — a required minimum number of members present to vote — effectively invalidating the law. 

And now for some good news.

It’s still dangerous in Uganda for LGBT people, but at least they can’t go to jail for it. This is good.


It’s another free swatch day at Spoonflower! If you order any design on eco canvas, you’ll get it free, without even having to pay shipping no credit card required. If you get one of my designs, I still get paid for it! It’s one of those nifty ways you can support me without spending any money, and you get something cool. And the awesome thing about this round of free swatches is, it’s canvas, which means you can make cool patches out of it. Sew it onto a bag, make a wallet out of it, the canvas stands up to it. The above are not my only designs, so check out that link above and find something you like for freeeeeee!

Reblog for the morning crew! You have until noon EST.

My friend Gala had a really good idea to buy a swatch of the pizza fabric and cut it into a heart shape. How cute!




When spoken word artist Brenna Twohy tells you that she is an unabashed devotee of all things “Potterotica” — erotic fiction based in the magical universe of Harry Potter — your response probably shouldn’t be that her taste is “unrealistic.” 

Watch her full monologue here.

I’m happy to be getting to the point where I don’t have to feel weird about enjoying fanfiction, or having written a bunch of it. Partly it’s that the fandom experience has become more broadly shared. Partly it’s that I stopped giving a shit.

And as for why I like the porny sort of fanfiction, see above. She says it better.

I like sex with context. I like sex when it involves fully fleshed out characters. I like the backstories. I like feeling like these people do other things when they aren’t having sex.
