“The frightening thing is that, like most of their other campaigns against women, they see themselves as just warriors fighting for what’s right. This is primarily because they firmly believe that any woman who speaks up on women’s issues is completely disingenuous and only doing it for the purposes of self-promotion, and that any man who does is looking to get laid, because they actually cannot possibly imagine a scenario in which someone would genuinely give a shit about women.
 
Members of this board, as well as “Men’s Rights Activists” in general, tend to go apoplectic at even the most mild implications that women might be human beings. For them, this is simply “not allowed” and must be punished swiftly and severely, as they appear to believe that feminism is the one obstacle in the way of all these pathetic neckbeards getting their pick of supermodel girlfriends who obey their every whim. The goal is to make it as uncomfortable to speak out about misogyny and women’s issues as possible, which is why they go to the wall in terms of harassing women like Emma Watson. At the end of the day, this is the crux of it. It would be sad if it weren’t so vile.”

Emma Watson threatened with nude photo leak over UN speech on gender equality

Because of course she was.

You Cannot Rest Here

Have you ever played a video game where you have to sleep to recover? They only let you do it if everything is safe. Otherwise they won’t let you sleep. You’ll get a message, saying “You cannot sleep now, there are monsters nearby.”

Now, remember the last time you just couldn’t get to sleep?

I do.

Don’t you fuckin do this to me

POWERS CASTING UPDATE, YO!  Exclusive!

All week long, especially since the USA Today Powers first look, a lot of you have been asking for more updates and specific casting updates about your favorite long-term Powers characters.

PlayStation and Sony were kind enough to let me use my little corner of the inter-webs to give you guys first dibs on stuff that we all think fans of the comics would be most interested in.

Most asked questions: who is playing Zora? Triphammer? And Detective Kutter?

Well, here we go…

Logan Browning has been cast was Zora,

Andrew Sensenig (Upstream Color!!)  is Triphammer

Justice Leak IS Detective Kutter. 

They join Shalto Copely as Christian Walker, Susan Heyward as Detective Pilgrim, Michelle Forbes as Retro Girl, Eddie Izzard as Wolfe, Noah Taylor as Johnny Royale and Olesya Rulin as Calista

Filming is underway in Atlanta for the first 10 episodes as we speak. Look for lots of updates coming very soon.  Like, very soon.

Every PSN user in the US will receive the first episode of Powers for free and PlayStation Plus members will be able to view the entire season for free.

ALICE ROOSEVELT WAS HARDCORE. “She was known as a rule-breaker in an era when women were under great pressure to conform. The American public noticed many of her exploits. She smoked cigarettes in public, swore at officials, rode in cars with men, stayed out late partying, kept a pet snake named Emily Spinach (Emily as in her spinster aunt and Spinach for its green color) in the White House, and was seen placing bets with a bookie. 


So what I’m reading here is, she was a Roosevelt?

Once upon a time there was a sloth who wanted very badly to be a belly dancer.People said “It’s not that a sloth can’t be a dancer—we live in an enlightened age, a sloth can do whatever she wants—but still—perhaps a stately waltz or minuet? Sloths are not quick.That’s just the way it is.”But the sloth’s one desire was to be a belly dancer, and so she was,dancing to the tambour and the wailing flute.She was very slow. It took all night.Most people left.But a few people stayed, and thoughtthat it was worth the wait. - Ursula Vernon

Moving forward with the week

Moving forward with the week

1. So, this was the medical situation on Friday. I can’t talk well enough to work. I may have to pay for the Mayo Clinic out of pocket. We still don’t know what’s wrong with me.

This … this colors everything else, right now. I plan to spend today on the phone, trying to move the process along more, get more answers on the payment front because, well, that’s all I can do.

2. As announced last week,
