doodled this earlier and i dont think im ever going to even finish it but. i really liked the look of it anyways?? hmmm

Ormondsacker asked me: “Have you ever read Joanna Russ’ "How to Suppress Women’s Writing” and if so what did you think of it? I recently read it and couldn’t stop thinking how many of the mechanisms she describes in the book seems prevalent when it comes to how media treats fanfiction. Idk, maybe it’s just me.“

Oh man, it’s been (OY) almost thirty years since I read it, but man, I think you might be on to something. I remember the list of suppression methods most clearly–here’s the summary from Wikipedia, which I think is pretty accurate:

The book outlines eleven common methods that are used to ignore, condemn or belittle the work of female authors:

Prohibitions: Prevent women from access to the basic tools for writing. 

Bad Faith: Unconsciously create social systems that ignore or devalue women’s writing. 

Denial of Agency: Deny that a woman wrote it. 

Pollution of Agency: Show that their art is immodest, not actually art, or shouldn’t have been written about. 

The Double Standard of Content: Claim that one set of experiences is considered more valuable than another. 

False Categorizing: Incorrectly categorize women artists as the wives, mothers, daughters, sisters, or lovers of male artists. 

Isolation: Create a myth of isolated achievement that claims that only one work or short series of poems is considered great. 

Anomalousness: Assert that the woman in question is eccentric or atypical. 

Lack of Models: Reinforce a male author dominance in literary canons in order to cut off women writers’ inspiration and role models. 

Responses: Force women to deny their female identity in order to be taken seriously. 

Aesthetics: Popularize aesthetic works that contain demeaning roles and characterizations of women.

Yeah, if you replace the word "woman” with the word “fan” here, things get pretty interesting…

your art's cute and all but you use the same body/face shape and the same stiff shoulders, arms puffed out, straight leg pose /every/ single time. /:
