i drew another self indulgent thing which is pretty much the same as the last one oh well

milo manara’s response to the spiderwoman cover criticism is my favorite thing on the planet i want to answer questions in opaque...
I am supposed to be spicy, sensual, and seductive; instead, I am a somewhat awkward academic who doesn’t like touching most people, wears too many scarves, and cannot pose sexily to save her life. I don’t fit any of the Latina stereotypes, and so people have sometimes accused me of “abandoning [my] culture” and “self-whitewashing” in order to fit in.
Despite the thrilling arguments about asexuality being a “white sexuality,” white supremacy doesn’t want me to be asexual any more than the patriarchy does. Those creepy white guys on the train who call me “chica” and waggle their eyebrows at me don’t want me to be asexual–they want me to be the hot and sexually available “Latin lady” of their dreams.
it’s 2014 can we stop calling man tanks wife beaters does nobody even realize how weird that is to just throw words around like that casually because it’s so ingrained into our vocabulary what the hell
call ‘em McClanes.
best way to stop people doing something shitty is to give ‘em a better thing to do.
I support this because seriously I have always thought it was seriously weird and unsettling that there’s a piece of clothing called a ‘Wifebeater’
If it helps, the actual trade name for them is “A Shirt”. Like a T-shirt, only an A-shirt.
Tank tops. Normal Americans call them tank tops for pity’s sake.
Down here, we call them singlets.
SARAH FERGUSON: However, do you accept that there is a hit in the way that you’ve set up the loan repayments that hurts women and poorer people more than it does high income earners? Do you accept that’s the consequence?
CHRISTOPHER PYNE: No, absolutely not. And I don’t accept it because what will happen at universities is that vice chancellors and their leadership teams will know that they should not charge and will not charge higher fees for courses which are typically going to be studied by people who’ll be nurses and teachers and therefore not earn high incomes over a period of time. Now, women are well-represented amongst the teaching and nursing students. They will not be able to earn the high incomes that say dentists or lawyers will earn, and vice chancellors in framing their fees, their fee structure, will take that into account. Therefore the debts of teachers and nurses will be lower than the debts, for example, of lawyers and dentists.
