You glare up at the sky.
"I didn't wound you out of hatred,
But I don't have wings,
And the sky is so high..."
..."Go ahead and use my wings, spider.
But even you, who is yet to know the hardships of flying, will someday realize that you were only flying within someone's hand,
And that you were calling that freedom..."--Hide with Spread Beaver "Pink Spider
This comic accurately sums up my feelings towards those who complain about The Hawkeye Initiative.
look, I am a huge David Willis fan. He is funny, brilliant, and bang on the mark.
But this? This is the single best and most important comic he has ever done and I am going to keep reblogging it until people stop making the argument in the first panel.
I will never get tired of this
The fact of the matter, is that comics were made for boys,
i’m just gonna leave this here
So were trousers but women get to wear trousers now too, dickbag
You wanna know who got me into comics? MY MOTHER! She grew up in the forties and fifties and collected all the comics she could get her hands on. All kinds of comics. Superheros, Disney, Archie, Dennis the Menace. She saved them all and gave them to me when I was five or six years old. I got to read about how the day was saved by Hostess Fruit Pies, social issues small children had to deal with, and the “latest” make-up fashions from Paris. Tell me again how comics were made for boys, dickbrain.
My mom was also the comics reader in our household, not my dad. I don’t recall my dad ever reading a piece of fiction when I was a kid. He read non fiction, usually manuals for things, and the newspaper. And that was it. Our household conflict: Mom was a marvel girl, Spider-Man specifically. I was a DC girl, Batman specifically. Now fiiiiiiight.
Comics were created for boys *snip*
No, they weren’t.
At the dawn of the industry, more women read them than men.
WHY JOYCE BROWN IS A REALISTIC CHARACTER AKA WHY THAT SHOULD BREAK YOUR GODDAMN HEART
I WAS GOING TO JUST UPLOAD SIMPLE FANART WITHOUT MUCH OF A DESCRIPTION BUT THEN I REMEMBERED THAT ALLEGEDLY IN THE WALKYVERSE/DUMBIVERSE FANDOM THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO THINK JOYCE IS NOT A REALISTIC CHARACTER AND APPARENTLY SHE’S A TWO-DIMENSIONAL SATIRE OF CHRISTIANITY?
LISTEN HERE YOU LITTLE SHITS WHILE I EXPLAIN YOU A THING:
it is all true
gpoy to the max
It never fails to crack me up that the first time I posted this, half of my followers thought this was a picture of a large caterpillar :’)
HOLY SHIT I THOUGHT IT WAS TOO UNTIL I READ THE COMMENT
Ladies I hope getting your nails done feels good because not a single man notices you got them done.
women do some things for themselves and not just for men
what a concept
do you guys remember that one post about how men feel entitled to take up so much space and women have to deal with a lot less?
This is actually a documented thing. You always see men on the subway or tube or whatever using both armrests while women sit with their arms hunched together into their laps. That’s why I always make a point to take up at least one if not both armrests of the tube so men can be uncomfortable for once.
In my college classes (and high school too) guys were always stretching, sticking fists and elbows in my face, leaning their heads back over my desk, over my work, spreading their legs out, kicking my bag with their dirty shoes. And let’s not pretend they were in other guys’ space as much as they were in women’s.
It’s so true, this happens to me every day on the train. Same with the walking thing, women will weave out of the way whereas men just walk straight and plow down anything in their path. I always end up playing chicken with men on the sidewalk now, because I refuse to move out of their way.
I love playing chicken with dudes who hog the sidewalk. BODY CHECK! Fucking assholes.
“NOT ALL MEN ARE LIKE THIS!” FUCK OFF.
“AS A MAN, I THINK THAT…” FUCK OFF.
Men always have the same defensive bullshit to spout every time they get called out on their shit. AND IT IS BORING. They remind me of those toys where you pull a string an they have like 5 phrases they can say. Over and over and over.
same here with playing chicken, its hilarious sometimes because they get this flash of realization in their eyes that says ‘holy shit, she’s NOT going to move/??? what do????’ because THEY ARE SO USED TO EVERYONE MOVING FOR THEM
when i was younger my grandpa drew this on a piece of paper,
and he asked me how i, as the red circle, would get around the two people (black circles) if i was walking down the street.
so of course i came back with
moving out of the way for them as i walked.
he asked me if i thought men would do the same and, at the time, i did because i thought it was just common courtesy. but he told me that men would barrel straight through without giving a shit and that i should do the exact same. because i was the one walking and they were the ones in the way. so that’s exactly what i do.
i find this really fascinating because this actually what defines so-called masculine and feminine traits and gestures. the whole limp-wrist thing? that’s someone decreasing the amount of space they take up by not extending their arm fully. same with crossing one’s legs, how it’s considered more masculine to swing your shoulders when you walk creating a wider gait instead of your hips, how someone who holds their elbows tightly into their torso instead of letting them fall more loosely at their sides is considered feminine.
taking up space is not just a frequent habit of males in our culture, its actually how society thinks masculinity is supposed to be expressed.
reminds me of This American Life story about women learning how to walk like men. it basically boils down to taking up as much space as possible, f a s c i n a t i n g !
omg idgi i always walk in a straight line when i walk and make other people move because BITCHES I NEED TO GET PLACES and I take up as much room as I pleeeeaseeeee when I am sitting down. maybe I am just weird but I really don’t relate to any of the above comments??? or maybe I am just secretly a man.
For everyone: This is a metaphorical depiction of a man attempting to cross the street.
