THIS IS THE GREATEST BLOG IN THE HISTORY OF GREAT BLOGS.
If you believe that racism
can be against whites, do us all a favor and unfollow me and fast.
If you believe that racism only applies to POC, do us all a favor and unfollow me and fast.
Racism is based on a system of oppression. Like, you know, slavery, imperialism, etc. It’s possibly to discriminate against whites. It’s also possible to demean white people for their race. But it’s impossible to be racist against a white person because, at present, there is no system of oppression of white people.

Oh you meant, like, actual titles? The “Who is Donna Troy?” storyline was really good. But in general, The New Teen Titans is a good place to look for Dick and Donna interaction. I love Dick and Donna — they are the greatest friends in the history of friends.
I was under the impression that I was making it very creepy to be a big comic fanatic. I like Lagoon Boy because Lagoon Boy is fantastic. And Cass Cain because Cass Cain is ultra fantastic. She invented fantastic.
In short, I said, events like Columbine are influenced far less by violent movies than by CNN, the NBC Nightly News and all the other news media, who glorify the killers in the guise of “explaining” them. I commended the policy at the Sun-Times, where our editor said the paper would no longer feature school killings on Page 1. The reporter thanked me and turned off the camera. Of course the interview was never used. They found plenty of talking heads to condemn violent movies, and everybody was happy.” —Roger Ebert (via vaginawoolf)
Let’s review: In a post-apocalypse society where a hole in the ozone has killed off most white people, the human race is driven underground. There, colored people are the “ruling” group, if you will. Victoria Foyt actually ranks the fucking races, with African-Americans first, then Latino/as, then Asian, then white people, and finally albinos. Apparently they get nicknames too, and black people are called coals, while white people are called pearls. Let that sink in for a moment. In this world, because apparently poor sad defenseless white people are being oppressed by the big bad colored people, the protagonist has to wear blackface. The whole premise of the book operates on the assumption that when POC become the majority, they will oppress white people. As a half Asian woman, I would like to extend my sincerest fuck you. We deal with enough “mighty whitey” and “colored people are bad” bullshit in the media, but Foyt has taken it to a new level. She’s abandoned any sense of subtlety about the inherent racist messages in the book, and is unapologetic about how the novel portrays POC. The ultimate message the book sends isn’t an anti-racist one, like what the author claims, but the idea that colored people are embittered and cruel, and white people are victims of their revere racism.
So in light of the fact that I apparently bear an uncanny resemblance in demeanor to Hello Kitty, I have decided that I am Kitty. Kitty is me. From now on I command you to call me Kitty for I will not respond to anything else because I am Kitty.
Sometimes I think life would be easier if I was gay but then like I would basically be dating another me and NOPE NOPE NOPE MEN ARE GOOD I AM OKAY WITH MEN.
No. I have no idea who that person is…
I don’t want one of those cutesy relationships where they snuggle and the girl wears his hoodies and they run about in the park and play games in a used bookstore and shit like that honestly I just want to be able to eat your french fries without you getting mad at me.
I’m really bad with names.
The entrance sign to Hell is written in comic sans.
The idea is that on, let’s say, August 31st, fans goes to comixology and buy Batgirl #1.
The goal is to get her on the bestseller list for the day (or longer) and prove to DC that she’s not “toxic” and there are still fans who want to read about the character.
So, anyone interested?
Count me in!
Cass fans unite!
$2 for a stab at getting Cass in the DCnU? Fuck yeah I’m doing this.
Today for lunch I decided to walk to the Asian supermarket because that place is the bomb. On my way there, a man in a pickup truck whistled at me. I don’t know how many times I need to reiterate this: do not catcall me or I will destroy you. Because I was especially sourpuss today. I ran up to his car (he was stopped at a red light), kicked the side of it, stuck up both of my middle fingers, and yelled “Fuck you, asshole. Women are not your property!”
And then I fucking bolted because I kicked his car.
ONE OF MY COWORKERS BROUGHT HER TEENAGE DAUGHTER TO WORK TODAY AND SHE’S WEARING A FEDORA OH MY GOOOOOOOD.
Damian is such a little shit I love him.
Babs is still Babs. I love Barbara Gordon, no matter what role she’s taking up. I would have preferred her to be Oracle in the reboot, but from a business standpoint, I can see why DC wanted her back in the cowl.
I. Love. Cass. I would read anything if Cass was in it because CASS. I’d love to see Cass take up the Batgirl mantle in the New 52, but that’s mostly because I’d love to see Cass in general. Ideally, DC would produce a title with a Cass and Tim team-up because that would be so much fun. As Batgirl or Black Bat or ANYTHING REALLY AS LONG AS IT WAS CASS.
As for Stephanie, she is a sweetie pie. And because she’s such a feisty, optimistic creature, I think she provides a really interesting element to any role she’s put in. I most enjoyed her as the Spoiler, because I personally felt that the Batgirl role wasn’t really for her. I’d love to see her as Robin again, though.
Or as Nightwing just throwing that back out there.
NEVER. Just kidding. I don’t know. I’m not Dan Didio I’m a half Asian teenage girl with a victim complex.
