FAKE GEEK GUYS: A MESSAGE TO MEN ABOUT SEXUAL HARASSMENT
By Andy Khouri
“I think this woman is wrong about something on the Internet. Clearly my best course of action is to threaten her with rape.”
That’s crazy talk, right? So why does it happen all the time?
Honest question, dudes.
That women are harassed online is not news. That women in comics and the broader fandom cultures are harassed online is not news. That these women are routinely transmitted anonymous messages describing graphic sexual violence perpetrated upon them for transgressions as grave as not liking a thing… that is actually news to me, and it’s probably news to a lot of you guys reading this.
So what do we do about it?
This is important.
SOLD first painting of 2014! I love pirates i seem to like to paint them holding cats or other animals lol. this one is inspired by of all things, a picture of a black halloween wig i saw when i was looking up shirley temple after she died. the ringlets were perfect for one of my girls. this color, a more vibrant turquoise in person, is one of my favorite colors at the moment. so calming. This is an acrylic painting 20x24
