Webbgirl's Squee


While fandom can drive me nuts at times, I still love fannish things. Current obsessions are Suits, all things Gabriel Macht and my neverending love for comic books.

Ask me anything

So I think we were all pretty righteously pissed off today. And then Greg Rucka reminded us all why we buy so many of his comics.
And like some lesser designs, you can also buy this on a shirt.

Contents Under Pressure

I rarely use this to just blog. I’m going to just blog now, so you can all just ignore this if it’s not to your liking.

Warning. Contents under pressure.

Wow. Greg Rucka is super for reals not here for your sexist bullshit in nerd or geek communities. Also, something that stuck out to me was this passage:

"Portland Public Schools has a lottery system to get into its magnet programs. For two years, our daughter has been dreaming of attending one specific middle school, one that’s art focused. She’s been in a science-and-math magnet program, and she’s done very well there, mind, but the social aspect… it’s been grinding her down. She was looking to escape. She was looking to go to a place where, she imagined, she could be who she is and not suffer for it."

His daughter, thriving academically in the math and science program is looking to leave for an art program because the SOCIAL ASPECT (read: sexist microaggressions based on her gender) is wearing her down.

She’s 10.

And what’s devastating to me and so many others who will nod their heads while reading this post is that even if she overcomes this particular gauntlet and sticks with science and math? There’s going to be another one. And another one. And another one. All through high school, undergrad, graduate school, her first job, her entire career. Until she quits because she just can’t take another day of suffering to be simply who she is. Because there’s not enough support or resources or even people acknowledging that it is a *systemic* problem that needs to be addressed at every level.

How bad do things have to get?

Why is this fandom trying to kill me?When did he get this fucking hot???WHY MUST YOU KILL ME LIKE THIS???How can one man be this gorgeous?And he's totally not thinking about his associate while having that look on his face.Because I apparently need another fandom.I'm sobbing because this will never be a reality for the show.I sense a theme with all of these tags

The Minor-League Superhero Who Changed the Face of Fandom | Underwire | WIRED →

I wish I’d had like 8000 words for this, because Carol Corps blows my mind. It’s the first time I’ve seen a truly positive-sum fan community—a group that is all about sharing the joy and inspiration they get from this character, and celebrating the myriad of ways people find to engage with her. Fan after fan told me that they’d gotten into Captain Marvel because someone else called, lent them books, told them how much the character and community had grown to mean, and invited them in.

Look: I love the hell out of Carol Danvers and Kamala Khan, but they’re not why I finally bought myself some Optimystical dog tags at that show: Carol Corps is what inspires me again and again to keep caring about superhero comics, to believe they—and the community around them—can change for the better, and to hold them to that standard. You guys take my breath away.

Here’s Rachel Edidin’s article on Carol Corps, and our Carol Corps Celebration!

That’s going on with me right now, and I’m supposed to drink a lot for the transplant. I just can’t seem to do it!

Yeah. Now that I’m starting run/walking, I’m going to have to set reminders for myself to drink a bunch during the day. By the time I’m out training it’s a bit too late. :/

Fluids? What fluids? *g*

Pretty sure that’s exactly what my kidneys and muscles are asking at this point.

How have I made it this far as a supposed adult without being able to get myself to drink enough fluids each day?
