We’re going out of town for Thanksgiving, but I just wanted to wish my American followers a very happy holiday if you celebrate it! I should be back in action the week after next. :)
Damian nonchalantly leading a line of turkeys while playing the trumpet is easily one of the greatest and most hilarious things I have ever seen, and I would like to thank Dustin Nguyen for enriching my life with this. ;-)
Outside of the family dinner scene at the end, this was definitely my favorite scene of the comic.
Dammit, Diana. HOW CAN ANYONE IGNORE YOUR AWESOMENESS.
Beats me! ;-)
One of the things I love most about Gail Simone as a feminist writer is that she doesn’t just go for the cliches - she understands feminism with an insider’s eye, and therefore her portrayals don’t come across as stiff cardboard stereotypes, but rather nuanced and realistic people we can all identify with. What woman who calls herself a feminist hasn’t had a moment like this at some point (or, let’s be honest, all the time)? And yet portrayals of feminist women usually go straight for over-the-top, obnoxious “strength” and skip the relatable little moments like this.
That’s why Gail Simone is such an important feminist writer. It’s not just because she writes “strong female characters”. It’s because she understands what feminism really is.
You are a shining example of our culture’s sense of entitlement to women’s bodies.
props to scarlett for calling it out honestly
Remember the time she asked why the boys got all “the really cool thought-provoking questions’ and she got the ‘rabbit food question’
and i stood up and clapped for her for calling it out
Unless the interviewee initiates this topic…..don’t go there. It’s rude. :/
It’s not even that it’s rude, it’s just sexist plain and simple. This guy thought it was totally a-okay to ask about what Scarlett was wearing under her clothes. Why would he think that’s appropriate? Because society conditions us to believe a woman’s body is not her own. It can be ogled and twisted, and dissected all for the male gaze without any consent given by her. The guy even tries to defend himself by saying “hey it’s not like I asked if you wore lace panties or anything” like way to miss the entire fucking point dude.
You just shouldn’t be asking what’s underneath her costume. Period. It’s none of your business. And none of the guys get asked this question even though Chris and Jeremy also wore extremely tight costumes as well. It’s because Scar is a woman and therefore her body isn’t her own. Or at least that’s what this guy (and many others) seem to believe.
Reblogging again because I love ScarJo and I love how she takes no shit from this stupid guy (most guys in general, actually). I hate sexism.
I give ScarJo major credit for how she handled this. You go girl!
