What to draw,
stuff for candy themed gallery show,
Today I witnessed something amazing. Almost in stark contrast to yesterday, today I saw tangible impact of lady-representation in comics.
At the bookstore I work at, we have a dedicated Adventure Time section. This family came in and those kids were SO EXCITED to see their favourite characters in comics. I talked them through each OGN and series compilation, explaining what they all were and in what order they should be read, and this little girl’s entire life was changed. You could see it on her face.
The moment I mentioned Kate Leth (and that, yes, she is a girl.) this little girl’s face lit up like Christmas morning. I don’t know if it just never occurred to her that girls can work in comics but the excitement and wonder that left the store in her was a privilege to see. I ended up selling them the Fionna & Cake’s, all the OGN’s, and an AT doodle book. She left begging her dad to help her learn how to draw Marceline comics. (And he was happy to comply!)
Kate Leth has left an everlasting impression on this little girl just by existing and working in the industry. I honestly hope to someday be able to see such an impact on someone from my own work. Ladies in comics is important. The representation on the page, and behind them, is important. Having a reflection of yourself in the content you enjoy is important. I hope that little girl grows up to be a famous comic author someday.
It was a very good day.
Ugh… so many girls don’t actually know sex is supposed to feel good and it’s so upsetting. :(
I know, she said she thought there was supposed to be a bit of blood and pain before you “got to the good part”. Like what??? Hello??? Why do people have sex all the time if it’s supposed to be painful??
This is incredibly infuriating, not to mention just plain sad :|
Kids don’t fool yourselves Japanese is a hard ass language to learn especially to read because kanji is fucking everywhere and it will make you want to rip your brain out
Also counters and sentence structure. Why are there different counters for different things. Why must street addresses have their own special counter. Why do lessons. Why. Why must verbs come at the end. Why is the sentence structure so freeform yet so rigidly spesific. Why. Why are there no spaces between words or sorts of markers where words end and the next one begins.
I’m so mad, I hate this fucking language
