I wanna hurry home to you
Put on a slow, dumb show for you and crack you up
So you can put a blue ribbon on my brain
God, I’m very, very frightening, I’ll overdo it

Josh Thomas talks about male suicide

I wonder how feminists will react to this

Probably ignore it then go back to making male tears mugs and gifs 

Actually this is a very common idea among feminists

It’s something feminists have been talking about for years it’s called toxic masculinity and it’s one of the common threads among the topic of ‘Patriarchy hurts men too’. If fact the first time I read about toxic masculinity was on a feminist blog.

If you actually read things feminists talk about instead of straw manning them you might know this but OH WELL

What men don’t understand is that women are FIERCELY PROTECTIVE of underage girls because we remember when we were young and some adult man made us uncomfortable or manipulated us or was inappropriate with us and we were powerless.

Mara uncoiled the thing she carried, held the edges apart, and pulled it over her feet like stockings. Lo barely had time to notice the crescent tail shape that appeared before Mara’s legs were gone, then her hips, then her shoulders and face and hair, all encased in a velvet skin mottled silver and charcoal black. She slipped off the rock, an oblong, slick seal, and was lost to the darkness of the sea.

Does anyone have a source for this so we can credit the creator?

I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -

Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.

Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.

If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.

And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.

I made The Witches’ Daughters for Terrestrial, an anthology of earth-themed fantasy comics edited by Amanda Scurti. You can also read it at its forever home on my portfolio website.

The anthology debuted at SPX 2014, and now you can buy it here! It’s full of lovely comics and illustrations, and I’m very happy to be included in such good company.

I’ve been meaning to do this for such a long time, so here it is. My follow the heck out of these people because they’re all amazing forever post.

I’m so grateful to have you in my life, and without you I would be empty, bereft. Because I need you. You are perfect and everything. You are my inspiration. You challenge me, and make me want to be better. I just.. you are everything, okay?mironss → Ani is my bae. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without her. She reminds me to breathe and that it’s okay to be an idiot sometimes. I would punch someone out for you. I’m just saying. She’s tough and so, so smart, and she’s one of the most hardworking people I know. I get really excited when she does well, and I’m proud of her for not letting crap get in her way even though it gets insistent sometimes. I love you, bae.crystalreeds → I can’t quite remember how long I’ve known Katelyn, but it’s long enough for me to still have a Christmas present I was meant to send her a year or so ago (it’ll get there at some point, I promise). She’s the Ashton to my Calum, the Lorelai to my Luke, my bff4lyfe on Snapchat. We might not talk as much as we did, but I know she’s there. You’re strong and perfect and I will always be there for you no matter what. You will kick the shit out of life, trust me.scottmmccall → Nada always puts a smile on my face. Always.

I treasure her advice, and I’m so glad she still talks to me despite the fact that I am the worst texter-backer/conversation starter in the world. Thanks for putting up with me, and making me laugh. You’re a gem.
