DEAR MEN IN COMICS:
THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO HIGH.
You need to help lower the price of women doing business in comics and in comics fandom to only the hard work. Not the hard work plus ducking threats online and off of violence, dodging groping, inappropriate advances, joking at the expense of the fat girl, the not “hot” girl, picking up and carrying around the short girl, creepshotting the cosplayer, stalking the professional.
You know, sexism. Violence. Attacks intended to create doubt and fear.
THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO DAMN HIGH.
CALL OUT OTHER GUYS. If women doing this for themselves really really worked, I wouldn’t have to be saying this.
Start culling guys from your personal and professional circles that are bad citizens, that you have to apologize for.
CALL OUT MISOGYNY AND SEXISM. Intervene. Speak up. Vocally reject things like the “Big Cans” promotion at NYCC on your blogs, Twitter, tumblr, Facebook, right then and there when it happens.
THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO DAMN HIGH. We’ve been paying and paying. I’ve paid with my health, self-esteem, and sense of safety. Other women have paid more.
THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO FUCKING HIGH.
Men, help us lower that cost so it’s the SAME AS YOURS: hard work.
(Please share the hell out of this>)
Let us not forget one of the most important things about the Universal Monsters era: The Creature From The Black Lagoon was created by a woman, Milicent Patrick.
Nearly unheard of at the time, ms Patrick is responsible for creating one of the single most recognizable characters, not only in Universal history but in all of film history. She was an incredible talent and she should be honored as such.

The blood moon. Not an easy shot to get, I had to use my telephoto lens at 6400iso without a tripod. Translation? The camera clicked for a loooong time and I had to not even breathe. Tripod…I need a tripod for this kind of thing. I can’t tell you how many shots it took to get this one, only that it took a lot. #bloodmoon #space #astronomy #photography #photographer #nature #moon #fullmoon #besticoulddowothwhatihave
