“Judgments”I took this last year, but in retrospect, I think it’s my strongest piece from high school.
Working on this project really made me examine my own opinions, preconceptions and prejudices about “slutty” women and women who choose to cover all of their skin alike. I used to assume that all women who wore Hijabs were being oppressed, slut-shame, and look down on and judge any woman who didn’t express her sexuality in a way that I found appropriate.
I’d like to think I’m more open now.

WAH THIS IS SO PERFECT SDKJFHDKSLADFJH

“This is for calling a woman you don’t even know a slut.”

this was one of the first comics I bought when I was getting into my “buying comics a lot” phase

Bitch
Targets and dehumanizes women, even if used towards men - including gay/queer men. Devalues women and femininity. Reinforces sexism.
Ghetto
Describes something or someone as cheap, worn out, poor, dangerous, etc. Reference to housing communities that are impoverished and disproportionately impact people of color. Associates people of color with these negative characteristics.
Illegal Alien
Reduces undocumented immigrants to something less than human. Fixates on legal status instead of people as individuals. Asserts that some people belong here more than others do. Ignores political, social, and economic factors that negatively impact people of color.
No Homo
Stresses the speaker’s heterosexuality, masculinity, and/or other traits to avoid being perceived as gay/queer. Goes to great lengths to avoid association with anything queer. Reinforces that to be queer is bad.
Retarded & Lame
Targets mental, emotional, and physical disabilities as objects for ridicule. Used as synonyms for “worthless,” “bad,” “unintelligent,” “incapable,” etc.
That’s So Gay
Stigmatizes gay and queer people. Uses their identities to describe something as undesireable or bad. Replaces negative adjectives with words related to queer/LGBT identity.
Whore/Ho & Slut
Dismisses anyone seen as being “too” sexual - particularly sex workers, women, queer people, and people of color. Perpetuates negativity towards sex itself. Regulates who is allowed to have it.
WORDS THAT HURT and WHY
These words create an environment that perpetuates violence and discrimination against people of color, queer and trans people, people with disabilities, and other marginalized communities.
People can reclaim these words for themselves as a form of empowerment. This is a personal decision. Don’t reclaim words on behalf of others.
Sometimes we say words without realizing the impact they may have on others. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Take the time to educate yourself about languages and histories of oppression.

Don't let the Missouri legislature honor Rush Limbaugh

The petition reads: “Don’t place a bust of Rush Limbaugh in the State Capitol. If you honor him in this way, you are supporting his reprehensible attacks on women, which is insulting and offensive to the people of Missouri.”

Please sign and share, especially if you live in MO.

Heathen. Vegan. Feminist.


love love love:

♥ Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials;
♥ Margaret Atwood (especially the Mad Adam series & The Handmaid's Tale);
♥ The Hunger Games;
♥ The X-Files;
♥ (Mostly) everything Joss Whedon; and
♥ Unicorns, narwhals, time travel & zombies (not necessarily in that order).

Also, I'd rather pretend that season 6 of Lost never happened, and that Alias ended with the 2003 Superbowl episode.
