if you don’t think this is the saddest thing in the whole of the MCU then you’re very very wrong.

zillions of people dead: sad. Sharon Carter not killing that dude: sad. the continuing lack of a Black Widow movie: PRETTY GODDAMN SAD. this is just sexually compelling, stop fooling yourselves.

Sexually compelling? What? Wiping someone’s mind with electroshock that has clearly ripped away the bulk of his humanity is sexually compelling? 

Don’t judge, yo: to some people a person showing vulnerability, submissiveness and an acceptance of - even eagerness for - pain which alters their headspace is pretty much the hottest thing.

Me, I just like the vulnerability and the shirtlessness.

Yeah, wasn’t meaning to judge that someone would find it sexually compelling, though I do see how what I wrote reads that way now. Like what you’re going to like, as long as it doesn’t non-consensually hurt someone. The problem I had is that someone said it was a sad scene and the response was that it’s just sexually compelling and that anyone who thinks it’s sad is “fooling themselves.”

Anonymous asked: I was wondering what is it called when you experience an Artistic attraction towards people rather than sexual? I would rather draw or paint them, And then cuddle...

asexualadvice:

I think the term you’re looking for is aesthetic attraction, which is the attraction towards someone’s looks, in a way similar to how one may find a sunset or a painting beautiful.

I like the phrase “artistic attraction” though. There is a difference between finding people beautiful and wanting to draw or paint them.

I’m not very familiar with artists’ terminology for their feelings towards the subjects depicted in their artworks. Maybe you can say you’re inspired by the person?

I feel like the “wanting to cuddle” part might indicate it’s more than just an aesthetic attraction though. Or at least that it’s more than just the looks here (although I suppose you could make the case that we imagine the person we find aesthetically appealing and ascribe personality traits to them and it’s still just the looks that are causing it…)

Either way, definitely been there.

Journal comics are magical things. You get to know the artist and their life and the people/animals in it so well that when something like this happens, it can hit pretty hard as if it’s happening to you.
Godzuki and Gelyte are pushing around 17 years or so now. I hope they have a few more good years left in ‘em.


I tried to explain to friends how I was upset over a cartoonist’s cat dying, but they were just confused. Glad to see more and more people with similar experiences

Other John Green temporarily loses an arm and exposes his femur (?)! His worried husband, Bald John, rushes to his side.

A classic moment in Wimbly Wombly history as AFC Wimbledon take on Swindon Town.

Is that a femur? Only the scientists of the future know for sure.

It’s a humerus, people.

I dunno, it doesn’t seem that funny to me, Hank.

Once upon a time Matt and Chip made a beautiful cover for the 4th printing of issue #1 of Sex Criminals. This beautiful cover captured the imagination of brimpers everywhere, including myself and my lovely coworker Heather (@girlblunders). The situation has since escalated nicely.

Welcome to Brimpception!

This is wonderful
