FAKE GEEK GUYS: A MESSAGE TO MEN ABOUT SEXUAL HARASSMENT
By Andy Khouri
“I think this woman is wrong about something on the Internet. Clearly my best course of action is to threaten her with rape.”
That’s crazy talk, right? So why does it happen all the time?
Honest question, dudes.
That women are harassed online is not news. That women in comics and the broader fandom cultures are harassed online is not news. That these women are routinely transmitted anonymous messages describing graphic sexual violence perpetrated upon them for transgressions as grave as not liking a thing… that is actually news to me, and it’s probably news to a lot of you guys reading this.
So what do we do about it?
This is important.
In Response to jessfink. So I’m pretty sure this is not actually a March Costume, BUT APRIL DOESN’T CARE ABOUT THAT SORT OF THING
So, I’ve been gotten this sketch app for my phone, and have make some art on it.
They all have to do with the dysphoria I experience, primarily while at work.

This is such a fucking lifesaver. Been having this issue for over a year now, despite driver updates and reinstalls and etc etc etc… when this trick worked I wanted to do one of those football victory slams with my keyboard I was so excited.
drama and snake-friendship.
I was gonna make like a 2 page comic just for fun and then it ended up with 6 pages, woops
Alright, so this is great.
Lumberjanes drops today, you guys! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?
I’ve been posting a lot about this series, because I am just so excited. First off, it’s created by an amazing team of badass ladies - It’s co-written by Grace Ellis (Intern Grace of Autostraddle) and Noelle Stevenson (who you know as Gingerhaze and the creator of Nimona), was co-created by Adventure Time and Regular Show editor Shannon Watters, and is being drawn by amazing AT/RS artist Brooke Allen. Not a single symmetrical haircut between them, and I love it.
More than that, it’s a story about five best friends at summer camp fighting MONSTERS. A little bit Gravity Falls, a dash of Babysitter’s Club, some riot grrrl attitude - and so much fun. It’s all-ages! It’s awesome!
And, on a more personal level, it is just so much GIRL POWER. You open the credits page on Lumberjanes and take a scan over those names - pretty much everybody who worked on the book is a tough lady. The cover artists were chosen from the massive pool of talented women working in indie and webcomics, and they are SO GOOD.
A whole bunch of awesome ladies making a comic about awesome ladies, but for everyone. Representation matters, and it does the heart good. Plus, it’s just super funny and wonderful. Pick it up, check it out! Wear plaid and tweet it at @Lumberjanes - the Valkyries will be doing it all day.
(Oh, and lastly - each issue deals with the girls earning a scout badge, and I designed ‘em!)
Welcome, welcome to all my new MoCCA followers! I had blast this weekend seeing all my comics pals and buying bagfuls of comics, and now I am all kindsa pooped. I got some sketches from the show to scan and share with you all, but in the meantime here’s a quick lil scribbly comic I drew with a handful of ~*~brand new pens~*~. It was inspired by my friend bazzelwaki - hope it brings you sweet dreams, Bitmap.
Ahhhhhh!!! <3 <3 <3
