I’m seeing all these cool cartoons and comics by so-called feminist artists that are being reblogged on a ton of feminist tumblr blogs, yet the female characters are almost always white, thin with unrealistic proportions and no hip dips. What’s the deal?! How is this being overlooked?!
Queer comics & diversity: sparknotes from Stumptown
I am currently writing this from within an only slightly dank basement in Portland, OR, at the lovely home of my gracious host and dad’s-college-friend, Steve. There’s a space heater and a cat down here [that’s taken to waking me up in the middle of the night by poking its furry head out of the covers Grudge-bed scene-style] though, so it’s more than fine. I spent this weekend at the Stumptown Comics Fest, the annual indie comics mecca of the U.S. Not only am I digging a return to warm/just-humid-enough-so-you-never-need-lotion west coast weather, but I’m appreciating how the local culture embraces all things queer- and the comic con was no exception.
