dcwomenkickingass:

Four years ago when I posted an image from Batgirl and launched this blog, I really did believe there was a way to expand the reach of comics and bring in more readers who want to read about female characters and work by female creators. And from the very beginning my theory was that traditional comics media was a echo chamber that were mostly not very friendly places for female readers.

So from the very start of this blog I suggest that comics grow by looking outside the traditional ways to gain new female readers. I wrote about it.  And wrote about it. And wrote about it.

But nothing changed. 

But now … perhaps it will.

I rarely use this to just blog. I’m going to just blog now, so you can all just ignore this if it’s not to your liking.

Warning. Contents under pressure.

It’s not a matter of working harder. The 40-hour work week vs capital gains and the ability to leverage one’s wealth at multiples is not comparable. The ability to hide earnings and lower tax expenditures clearly favors the very wealthy.

We have created a system that burdens the middle classes and gives the corporations/top 1% benefits that do not help our economy. The earnings for shareholders trumps all humanity and the incentive to invest in jobs/infrastructure has been reduced to near zero. 

Why spend any of your under-taxed profits when you can hide it off-shore?

"

The fact that so many on the right are valorizing Bundy—or, at minimum, tiptoeing around his obvious nutbaggery—is a testament to the enduring power of Waco and Ruby Ridge among conservatives. The rest of us may barely remember them, but they’re totemic events on the right, fueling Glenn Beck-ian fantasies of black helicopters and jackbooted federal thugs for more than two decades now.

Mainstream conservatives have pandered to this stuff for years because it was convenient, and that’s brought them to where they are today: too scared to stand up to the vigilantes they created and speak the simple truth. They complain endlessly about President Obama’s “lawlessness,” but this is lawlessness. It’s appalling that so many of them aren’t merely afraid to plainly say so, but actively seem to be egging it on.

The Right Wing needs to acquaint itself with the word “law”.

"Back when George W. Bush was president, liberals were regularly accused of being disloyal or anti-American if they disagreed with the policies the administration was undertaking. As Bush himself said, you were either with us or with the terrorists, and as far as many of his supporters were concerned, “us” meant the Bush administration and everything they wanted to do, including invading Iraq. You may have noticed that now that there’s a Democrat in the White House, conservatives no longer find disagreeing with the government’s policies to be anti-American; in fact, the truest patriotism is now supposedly found among those whose hatred of the president, and the government more generally, burns white-hot in the core of their souls."

Alanis Morissette - Ironic

The song grammar nerds, English majors, and linguists loooooove to pick apart. “NO ALANIS! RAIN ON YOUR WEDDING DAY ISN’T IRONIC, IT’S INCONVENIENT!”

But nothing in “Ironic” being ironic is the ultimate irony, so Alanis wins.

On making your bed

dearcoquette:

Is it strange that your advice to start by making your bed brought tears to my eyes? Being suicidal is basically the most difficult thing I’ve had to live with (pun slightly intended) and the simplicity of that first step… it just hit home. Thank you.


It may seem simple,…

I have to wake up so early that other people are still sleeping in my bed when I go to work. Does this mean I can never be successful? Because I feel like this post is telling me I won’t be successful. And that depresses me, but I can’t make my bed in order to make myself feel better.

I am so fucked.
