      Comic book gender swaps show how silly and objectifying some of the art can be - nice to see the man as a sex object here.

      The controversial Starfire from Red Hood and the Outlaws, Rule 63’d. Do you see how ridiculous this looks?

      prev pinner note: "For my Gender and the Body class. This is my artistic reaction to the Starfire controversy. I was going to draw her teammates in her outfit- or them in her pose- but instead I drew her as a man. I call him. Manfire. To illustrate how stupid these poses are and how un-empowering they are.

    The Hawkeye Initiative: It started with the top image. An artist called Blue posted a drawing of a Black Widow and Hawkeye cover with the poses swapped. Blue then issued a challenge to other artists: replace the female characters in other comics with Hawkeye. These are just a few examples of what happened next.

    False Equivalence and sexism in comics.

    Hollaback: Red, Yellow, Blue is now available for general sale! This comic book and its corresponding curriculum will chip away at sexism and gender inequity in two places - on the streets, and in the world of comics. HollabackPHILLY is proud to join the growing movement to support talented female comic book artists, strong female comic book characters, and the community of women and girls who love comics.

    "I haven’t been watching the Eschergirls blog for that long, but I’m extremely grateful for all the artwork that’s been posted here. It’s given me a chance to learn from sequential art masters, as well as reputable how-to books. I’ve paid attention to the techniques shown in both of these venues, and I think I now have a handle on how to draw the essential comic book superheroine" #feminism #comics

    This is hilarious

    what I want to say every single time i see an "I don't understand women" post -_-

    Oh say the nicest things :-)

    The X-Men are probably the deepest comics ever written. They're a group of societal rejects who fight to defend and preserve the basic human rights of those that would deny them their own basic human rights. They're unappreciated and even ostracized...but still they fight on.The true meaning of heroism. Incredible, really, when you think of it.

    Gamers Should Be Able to Choose Any Type of Character They Want

    This unbelievable makeup and costume job was done by the talented Meagan Marie and her makeup artist, Hydred, for 2011's San Diego Comic Con. She outlines in detail the costume assembly at her website, so I'll let her walk you through the process.
