YU+ME books arrive on August 4th!
Which means if you backed the kickstarter, and moved since then, or know you’re going to be moving in August, you need to send me a private message through kickstarter as soon as possible with your new address. Don’t email me, don’t leave it as a comment somewhere, don’t tweet it at me. None of those things will be tied to your ks account.
I’ve sent out so many messages to this effect, that if you don’t update your address, and it gets returned to sender, you’ll have two weeks to send me your current address and you’ll have to re-pay for shipping if you want me to resend them, and after that time, the books return to the inventory. I feel that’s more than fair.
I’m sorry. I love you.
Goddammit you’re breaking my goddamn heart lately.
Just saw a link to your Cthulhu Damasque at Spoonflower, and I'm adding some to my "to buy" list. I'm looking to commission some art for a Lovecraftian Paisley fabric. I want to use the fabric to create hand rolled Lovecraftian pocket squares. Would you be interested in working on this project?
I wish I had the time! I’ve got a whole list of fabrics I want to design, but I have to finish up my current list of commissions first. I am more or less booked solid for the rest of the year.
Pretty sure it's trans exclusionary, not eradicating. TERFs come from the school of thought that gender itself should be abolished since it is used often to keep people in certain roles and to keep stereotypes alive. (I.e. That gender as a social construct causes trans people's dysphoria) Basic third wave feminism. I'm not a TERF but have friends who are, they really are not as selfish or as hateful as they are perceived to be.
I’ve heard exclusionary, eradicating, and erasing, and you know what? Same difference.
By excluding trans women from feminism, one is effectively eradicating them. By saying “I don’t care about the violence you face as a trans woman” either through disbelief or ignoring their situation, one becomes part of the system that perpetuates that violence. By saying trans women are “really men,” that’s actively harmful. By saying trans women’s issues are irrelevant to feminism, that’s actively harmful. Whether by their own hand or someone else’s, trans people in general and trans women in particular face an amount of violence that we can’t exclude from the issues of the feminist movement, can’t erase from the feminist movement, without the result being effectively eradicating them.
It is hateful to tell trans women that they aren’t women. It’s just as bad as telling lesbians we just need a good dicking or telling women to get back in the kitchen. Bigotry is bigotry. I’m sure your friends have some other wonderful qualities, but that particular one is incredibly ugly and don’t make excuses for it.
I honestly don’t understand artists who give all their characters the same face and body. This is the most fun thing. Diversity is fun and cool to make and read!
These characters are from the next comic I’m going to work on, which will happen faster if the Patreon reaches $1500. Supernatural murder mystery on a old-timey circus train.
Sorry for not knowing, but what's TERF?
Trans-Eradicating Radical Feminist. And those scrubs can get off my block.
When TERFs reblog my feminist stuff
I don’t make stuff just for cis women’s liberation.
We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.
This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.
