I want to live like kamen people.
I want to do whatever kamen people do.
I want to sleep with kamen people.
I want to sleep with kamen people, like you.
What else could I do?
Does Hawkeye have a Thing's Dick Arrow?
i have made a huge mistake
This is officially the thing I’m most proud of.
I’m pretty sure the worst thing about Hawkeye having a Thing’s Dick Arrow would be the clear implication that Alicia was sleeping with Clint.
I'd love to break into comics, but am I right in thinking that the industry doesn't need any more white, hetero, cis, middle class men?
Boy, that’s for damn sure.
I’m gonna have to call Gail out here because I think she may have misunderstood the question. I would really hate to see anyone discouraged from doing anything they love because of their gender, race, sexuality, or social class.
Tumblr user iwillbattle, if you’d love to break into comics, please try and please do and good luck to you. The industry needs more of everyone and everything of all types, but above all it needs more great writers and artists, period.
Now, in terms of what you create? Sure, the industry needs something more innovative and more diverse than what it has.
But in terms of who you are as a creator? Never let that discourage you.
Honestly? No, I think I got the question.
And it’s a bit ridiculous.
No one is gatekeeping white straight male cis anything from anywhere. They’re not quarantined, they are not suddenly powerless before a massive wave of poc, lgtbtq, gender-spectrum, and trans writers.
Where is this flood of marginalized writers keeping the man down?
My understanding is that there isn’t a single black writer at the big two right now. I am not aware of a trans writer at the big two.
Who is it holding back the white straight cis guy? Show me where in mainstream Western comics where they aren’t the majority, were not always the majority, and are STILL the majority of new hires by a huge margin?
If you’re a writer, write, get a job in comics, that makes me happy. Asking if being in the majority group of every possible category is going to somehow hold YOU back, or make YOU unwelcome is just silly.
Quit thinking of what is clearly a huge advantage as cause to feel slighted. It’s untrue, it’s ridiculous on the face of it, and also, it’s unbecoming.
People always want to pretend marginalized groups have some shortcut. Well, listen, if they did, maybe we would HAVE more than a tiny handful. They do not have a shortcut. In many cases, the opposite is clearly true.
If you are a great writer, there’s room for you. No one was ever kept from a job writing mainstream comics because they were white or straight or male or cis and I think most anyone who looks at the industry today knows that already.
"My father was a slave and my people died to build this country, and I’m going to stay right here and have a part of it, just like you. And no fascist-minded people like you will drive me from it. Is that clear?"
