Convinced the title was inspired by summers in Texas.
THE CONTEXT OF THE WATERMELON BIKINI
I HAD NO IDEA IT WAS A POIGNANT COMMENTARY ON GENDER PRESENTATION
Holy shit this person
Can I just.
The “why don’t you dress like a woman” thing doesn’t even make sense. People aren’t going around asking why straight people don’t dress like their sexual preference. >.<
This is a perfect way of dealing with it.
Haha, this is great!
hi guys! this is a comic i made for a final in my comics in literature class. we had to do a research paper on a topic we’d discussed in class and then accompany it with a comic with a relevant subject. my paper was about hyper-sexualization of women in comic books, but i decided to broaden it out here as well as personalize it and make myself the subject and discuss something i’ve been subjected to in the convention circuit and on the internet as well as thousands of other women, as well as give a cue to thought about how the comic book industry as well as the video game industry and even just media in general (all of which are male dominated) push such ridiculous pressures onto girls and women.
also, it feels kind of silly to have to add this since i hope it’s obvious, but i am very aware that there are men that don’t subscribe to this attitude, and am incredibly grateful that these issues are brought to light to people other than the ones that are subjected to it.
anyway haha i have literally been staring at this for 9 hours i don’t even know which direction is up anymore. thanks for reading!!!
Seen not just in the comic/gaming communities, but others as well,..
Did you guys know I’ve worn glasses for 15 years?
Ahh! :) I have the same habits; I wear my contacts until bedtime or my eyes get too dry (computer, vidya games) and subsequently force themselves shut.. You look great, though, with your glasses :]
I really love this. I could probably drink many cups of coffee staring outside through those windows. Wrapped in blankets. Yeaa.
