““I think if Dickens was alive today, he’d have been working for the BBC, until HBO offered him much more money.””

Roddy Doyle discusses television and his short story in this week’s issue of the magazine: http://nyr.kr/1mUhHxZ

I always thought that if Charles Dickens were alive today, he’d work for a hula hoop manufacturer, but in human resources— he’d handle the sexual harassment complaints for the other hula hoop employees. But that would only be during the day.  At night, he would dance for money, at an exclusive warehouse populated with a small, select group of sinister men wearing Halloween masks of recently deceased celebrities. Weekends, he would spend with Will Shakespeare, who if Charles Dickens were alive today, would probably also be alive today.

17% of cardiac surgeons are women, 17% of tenured professors are women. It just goes on and on. And isn’t that strange that that’s also the percentage of women in crowd scenes in movies? What if we’re actually training people to see that ratio as normal so that when you’re an adult, you don’t notice?

…We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17% women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33% women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men.

Honey Maid versus bigotry. Honey Maid - and love — wins easily.

Remember when Honey Maid released that “wholesome families” ad, featuring same-sex couples, parents with tattoos, biracial couples, and other general awesomeness? Conservatives were pissed. So Honey Maid did them one better and released another video, addressing the hateful and homophobic comments head-on. And now I’m crying. (via the Huffington Post)

some times, a company feels the need to flip off its critics. and some times, it is GLORIOUS

Welp, looks like I’m adding Honey  Maid products up near Ben and Jerry’s ice cream for my weekly shopping list.

Oh hell yes. Buying ALL the Honey Maids this week and forevars.

We love each other like brutes. Gorgeously
and twilled. Any geography is hard. The skin
ends where skin ends.
It’s mapless. I want to be borrowed, to be
assembled, again. To feel a tug on the other
side of the string.
There is no difference between raw and awe.
To be wild is a last rite of pain. All geography
is hard. It keeps us
here and there. We loved each other like brutes.
What I wouldn’t give for one last you, my broked
half, to be again
what fractures you, what wholes you back.

Okay, I realize this hilariously late for Asexuality Awareness Week (which was last week), but due to unforeseen stressors, it didn’t really get done in time.

Anyway! I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while, and I’m proud of myself of actually getting a six page comic done within a week. (Not that it’s really anything super fancy, but it’s better than nothing lol) I do apologize for the massive ugly text wall that is page four but I had a hard time figuring out how to convey it visually while being kind of pressed for time. oh and the occasional copy/paste, I’m sorry for that too

Enjoy! Click on the separate pictures if the text is hard to read.

Relevant to my last reblog!

Asexuality for beginners.

Good comic

Portraits challenge what it means to be LGBT

These are just some of the many ways members of the LGBT community identify themselves in a beautiful photo series from San Francisco-based photographer Sarah Deragon.

Deragon’s “The Identity Project” has taken her around the country as she “seeks to explore the labels we choose to identify with when defining our gender and sexuality.” Her portraits show the amazing diversity and vibrance of a queer community that for too long has been defined by outsiders.

These are magnificent portraits of queer people.
