Several anti-feminist blogs are reblogging this post (a tweet by a satirical “woman against feminism” account, saying that they’re an egalitarian because they believe eagles should be superior), without any commentary or anything and I genuinely can’t tell if they’re being ironic, if they agree with it, or if they just saw the name “WomanAgainstFeminism” and reblogged it without really reading it.
“In a world… dominated by gender inequality and unfair pay, one Hollywood studio has done the unthinkable and made a movie – for women.” That’s how a new trailer for a parody film called “Hollywood Solves Sexism” begins.
It doesn’t matter if you’re gay or straight, pan, bi, asexual.
It doesn’t matter what you identify as.
It doesn’t matter how you dress or how you look.
It doesn’t matter how you talk, walk, act, feel, are.
But there are plenty more - what kind of comics are you interested in?
Superheroes?Batwoman: Elegy serves as the origin story of the current Batwoman, a gay woman named Kate Kane. The original team of the Runaways series includes a extraterrestrial lesbian named Karolina Dean, and the current team (Runaways: Secret Wars) features at least two queer women. Kieron Gillen’s run on Young Avengers introduced the instantly beloved America Chavez. Supercakes by Kate Leyh is a super-adorable story of super-powered girlfriends. I don’t know much about Sophie Campbell’s Shadoweyes, but it appears to be a darker take on superheroics with a cast of queer and trans teens.
Fantasy or science fiction? For sword fights and sorcery, try The Legend of Bold Riley, Rat Queens, or the brand new Princeless spin-off which just saw its first issue released this week, Raven: The Pirate Princess.I love YU+ME=Dream, a webcomic which starts as a high school drama then takes a turn towards surreal - you can read it online or buy the limited edition omnibus. There’s
a whole world of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer comics - some better than
others - featuring Willow Rosenberg and other queer ladies. The new
queer-inclusive takeon Jem & The Holograms is on comics store shelves now. Another pop-music themed comic - The Wicked & The Divine - features a pantheon of reincarnated gods plus lots of queer representation.Bitch Planet, a feminist satire in space, is getting its first paperback volume next month.
I grew up reading Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura, which were maybe
my first exposure to queer people in fiction. I haven’t kept up with
manga in a long time, but here’s a list of highly-rated yuri manga available in English, which includes a wide range of genres and intended audiences.
Or maybe just a slice of life? For something fictional but realistic, there’s the long-running Love and Rockets series by Jaime Hernandez and Gilbert Hernandez - I’m not entirely clear on how Locas relates
to the original series, but it seems to isolate the storyline of Maggie
Chascarrillo, a bisexual, Mexican-American punk. There’s also Blue Is the Warmest Color, the graphic novel by Julie Maroh on which the film was based. WhileRude Girls and Dangerous Womenby
Jennifer Camper might be as much wish-fulfillment as it is realistic,
it’s a great example of early underground lesbian comics.
I am fully aware that menism is satire of feminism. But ya know…studying satire and rhetoric these past two months, there is a lot more to satire than blatant mockery. I gotta say, menism isn’t even borderline Juvenalian, it’s just juvenile.
SO HOPE SOLO CAN ADMIT TO ABUSING HER HUSBAND PHYSICALLY AND LAUGHING ABOUT IT AND NO ONE DOES SHIT BUT JOHHNY DEPP IS SEEN ABUSING HIS FUCKING KITCHEN AND NOW EVERYONE HATES HIM. FUCK YOU DOUBLE STANDARDS
Satire about (some) gaming press and anti-gaming political extremists.
I dunno if Peter Johnson Jr was active before Jack Thompson, I’m not American. He doesn’t even seem notable enough to have Wikipedia article. Anyway, I’m claiming artistic license by slapping him as the face of Ultra-Catholic angle.
