I just read the new nightmare chapter in the YU+ME omnibus and…..I didn’t think I could hurt any more for Clandy than I already did. And now I physically hurt. Dammit! Megan Gedris how could you do this to me?! CURSE YOU AND YOUR TALENT FOR STORY TELLING!!!

Yay! I’m glad that the new chapters are going over well. The nightmare chapter is my favorite chapter of… basically anything I’ve ever done. I learned a lot about storytelling between ending YU+ME 4 years ago and writing new chapters this past winter and I was happy to have a chance to bring my new skills to this project that will always have a tender place in my heart. (Reminder that if you want to get in on these new chapters, go here.)

Once again, please pay attention to what’s going on in Ferguson. Abuses of power rely on ambivalence and ignorance. Bear witness to what’s happening there today.

TurboRoo, a chihuahua born without its front legs, was given a 3D printed cart made by San Diego firm 3dyn so he could train to be a service dog for disabled children.

I think we could all use these pics today. Golly!

WIP of one of my Monster Anthology stories (which you can preorder now!) I can’t get enough of drawing this guy. His name is Arthur, he just found a wallet on the sidewalk, and the devil and angel on his shoulder have decided they have better things to do than argue over his soul. This story will be in the NSFW edition.

Urgh.

I read this stuff all the time, just in passing as it comes across my transom, and generally, it’s so off-the-mark, I don’t pay attention, but I just read a thing about how I should ‘stop talking about feminism all the time.’

Guyguy, seriously, now.

Do you think we actually WANT to carry this tag around every day?  Do you think we all WANT to be seen as outsiders all the time? 

We didn’t make that happen. That was not our choice. That was the gameboard we were all given and there are a lot of people of all genders trying to fix that, or at least adjust it so that we all can play. I am doing fine. But there’s a lot of people who still feel excluded. 

And believe me, most of us will be delighted when we can set the extra burden down and not really have to think about it or bring it up anymore, because it’s a moot issue. 

But we’re still a ways from that, right?

I am dealing with it the best way I know how, as are most of the women in comics I know,  and I believe it’s made some difference. I believe things are getting better. 

We’re just not THERE,  yet.

Tickets are on sale now for the 2014 Michigan Burlesque Festival! It’s going to be amazing. I know a lot of these performers already, and I’m excited to meet some new ones. As for my acts, I’ll get to go nuts with them the way I can’t normally do with the average show. But you gotta come to see it!

Florence of Alabia is me, for those who don’t already know. I do burlesque, and I’m in this festival, and it’s gonna be so so so good!

I’m working on packing and shipping all the kickstarter backed books now, but soon, SOON! that task will be done and I’ll start selling to non-KS backers. If you sign up for this list, you’ll be notified exactly when that happens, three days before the general public, and you’ll get an early bird special kind of deal. There’s about as many people on the list as there are books, so it’s a good idea to get on this. After those three days, if there are any more left, I’ll post about it everywhere that they’re available for sale. If you want any of these for Christmas presents this year, I’d suggest buying them now, as I’m not sure they’ll last until November. So get on that list, guys!

Cops have been put on notice: Let the cameras roll.

Camera-shy cops across the city were reminded they can’t legally take action to stop someone from filming them while they’re on the beat, the Daily News has learned. The refresher was provided in a memo the chief of department’s office distributed to all police commands Wednesday.

“Members of the public are legally allowed to record police interactions,” the memo states. “Intentional interference such as blocking or obstructing cameras or ordering the person to cease constitutes censorship and also violates the First Amendment.”

Cops can take action if videographers and shutterbugs “interfere with police operations,” the memo notes.

spread this like wildfire

when you see abuse, take out your phone and film that shit. 

Post it on youtube, send it to the news, let the whole world hear about it.

You don’t have to be any kind of official journalist. Anyone can do this. Never let them tell you differently.

Bolded for emphasis.

If you’re a feminist against rape culture but you don’t see any problem with people telling black people to dress/act differently so as not to be attacked, then you’re one giant hypocrite. Clothing does not dictate anyone’s worth!
