rottingmindatplay asked: Beast is the elegant comic I have ever read. It kind of made me want to rock a monocle and go appreciate some sculptures while mincing wine. Marian Churchland is one classy lady.
I suspect that she is with me just to even things out. like “you know what would set off this classy tweed jacket? a dude with holes in his socks who loveeees Dirty pair comics”
One of my favorite cartoonists. The medium is better for having him.
something my 10th grade history teacher told me about how he knew he wanted to marry his wife (via unconcernedteenblogger)
Pretty much this.
wellthatswhatithought asked: I just watched your video on sexism-it was very powerful, especially the really personal comments. This is certainly not the first time I've heard someone telling more girls to make STEM videos--but what about the humanities? I'm into engineering, but I just have more to talk about with history and religion. No one has ever encouraged me to make those videos; would anyone even be interested? The push for girls in STEM is super important, but I feel slightly marginalized.
If there is no one to stand up for you, you’ve got to stand up for yourself.
This feels like a pretty important question. Yes, women are still underrepresented in STEM fields, but the fetishization of those fields is a problem that people seem to feel comfortable just sweeping under the rug.
mdthwomp asked: What do you think of quotes attributed to authors but said by their characters? I've always found it strange, because what one of my characters says might not align with my beliefs at all. Do you ever feel like people are misinterpreting who you are by assuming your characters' beliefs are your own beliefs?
