But comics aren’t inaccessible, and absurd storytelling doesn’t turn off new readers.

kelly sue celebrates passover the #teamhawkguy way

Hate to say it, but she’s no Kate Bishop.

Don’t you sass me, child. 

I’m a 42 year old mother of 2. Yesterday, I *slept in* until 4:30am, got my babies up and fed, planned an Easter brunch menu, finished a batch of rewrites, worked all day writing more comics than you, managed to sneak in 30 minutes on the treadmill and a quick shower before grabbing my hilarious and brilliant husband, two amazing children and double-batch potluck dish and heading to a seder at the home of two of our best friends, where I *rocked* playing with my daughter and her new bow & arrow out on the porch.  

Kate Bishop is great. I love Kate. But she’s a fiction, sweetheart, and she’s no fucking me. 

And Kelly Sue kicks another ass.

Will your employers provide you with a free Xbone since Tomb Raider is only going to be on that platform?

No, I already have one, and I just heard about the exclusive about an hour ago. :(

Wait, what? New Tomb Raider is Xbox-exclusive?

My Taco Bell PS4 is sad…

We all have a story to tell. Share yours with The Outrider Review. We bring together the stories, art, and souls of the LGBTQ community to help spread understanding and connection.

I know this wouldn’t work for everyone but kind of a lovely thought!

I wish transition came with a light show, the destruction of a few hundred Daleks, and a full life to live as our real selves…

The thing about Mrs. Doubtfire though is the character isn't supposed to be trans; nor is it purporting trans stereotypes really. It's a guy in drag trying to get closer to his kids. If you're gonna claim that's transmisogynistic, you might as well do the same for drag performers in general

dont wory i do. like 95% of drag queens are terrible people who throw slurs around and appropriate all sorts of cultural stuff. Hell, a ton of drag personas also throw around casual ableism, addiction as a source of amusement, low respect towards sex workers, etc. Drag culture is incredibly toxic.

I understand the character is not meant to be trans, but it relies on trans stereotypes for jokes throughout the film. And the film knowingly utilizes attitudes belittling trans women as a selling point.

No disrespect intended to the recently deceased, but I’ve always felt similarly about Mrs. Doubtfire. I have no doubt (haha) that Williams and the producers *meant* well, but it always came across as unfunny, and trying for humor at the expense of others (“lol look at this idiot in the dress that thinks he knows how to be a woman!”) Ugh.

I adore Robin Williams. I think he was nearly always very, very funny, exceptionally clever, and a master of both scripted and improvisational comedy. His comedic timing was second possibly only to Bill Cosby, and he exceeds Jim Carrey on his best day for use of voice and mannerisms in his work.

Mrs. Doubtfire is a terribly offensive film. It’s built on a transphobic joke, and is painfully misogynistic to boot. It’s the worst film Robin Williams ever acted in that I’ve seen, and the one glaring blemish on an otherwise stellar career.

So of course it’s the most-aired movie in America.

"Don’t say you hate your fam-" No.

"Omg you should love your fami-" No.

"Be grateful they’re your famil-" No.

If you have been bullied, hit, teased, put down, hurt, lied to, or hated by your own family; you don’t need to justify how you feel. You don’t need to explain yourself. You are allowed to hate a family member or dislike a family member if they’ve given you a reason to.

This is so fucking important.

Fact.

LGBT Gamers

In response to a forum thread going really, really bad, I made a group for LGBT gamers on the Wizards of the Coast site. The focus is D&D, but it’s also about life in general. We’ve got some fun people there already!
