Maybe the reason so many of us are uncomfortable with protest is because we tend to be uncomfortable with directness and sincerity in expressing our emotions. As a society, I mean. We bond socially by speaking around things - saying the opposite of what we mean. At many protests I’ve been to, the chanting doesn’t feel like “us”. It feels like an import from a society where people don’t slag to show affection, where people don’t have to drink to get together, where people can angry about things without being told to get off their high horse. This makes me wonder if there’s a kind of protest that we need to invent that’s unique to local customs and culture. But sure, maybe it’s just me. Maybe there has been a massive backlash against the government for everything they’ve done since 2008. Maybe I just missed it.
GUYS I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING
That is so adorable.
And so the cycle begins anew.
I was. We didn’t care more about music than popularity or sex. We weren’t happy with ourselves. I can’t tell if this is genuine or if it’s actually something someone of my generation said when they were teenagers, with the references updated. Also, I’m pretty sure my generation invented the foundation cake.

i’ve been thinking about all those posts about “we need female heroes who do girly things”/”why is the female hero always such a tomboy” and then the response posts that are like “uhhh actually we don’t really have any really masculine female heroes either” so i was trying to figure it out—what do we have, exactly?
and really what we get is women who eschew “girly” things while still managing to look like society’s ideal woman. they would never touch eyeliner (they’re too busy with Important Things), but their eyeliner is immaculate. they have a huge, varied wardrobe, but wouldn’t be caught dead actually shopping for clothes. and it reminds me of the expectation that women must be effortlessly beautiful. don’t wear makeup or you’ll seem self-absorbed—but god forbid you look like you’re not wearing makeup. it’s interesting to me, that the impossibilities imposed on female characters are the same ones imposed on real women.

I love that this is a real comic and that I got to draw it. And I love that tumblr has uploaded THE ENTIRE ISSUE as photosets. But mostly I love drawing grumpy li’l Wolverines.
Oh my gosh, I was saving this to read later today and now I’m just super excited!
This is going to be a good comics-reading-day.
i’m so upset
I just realized that the reason ghosts say Boo! is because it’s a latin verb
they’re literally saying ‘I alarm/I am alarming/I do alarm!!
if it comes from the latin word, they’re actually saying “I’M YELLING!” which is even cuter
do they speak latin because it’s a dead language
Casual reminder that the Irish government has been told by the UN that our abortion laws are in breach of Human Rights laws, and that the Tánaiste essentially that they’re not going to do anything about it.
WE’RE LITERALLY IN BREACH OF A HUMAN RIGHTS LAW

Bec gave me permission to turn her artwork into a cross-stitch pattern and distribute it (well, obviously pixel pieces are basically patterns already, but without grid lines it’s easy to get lost). If you make and post this make sure you credit her!
Pattern with colored blocks and symbols
Pattern with black and white symbols only
