(probably) last CG of the year! \o/
This was so fun to color! Food is always fun to color!
Ok, let’s deal with this shit once and for all.
It feels like really long time since I posted this comic and I thought I’m through with the shitstorm it started. But recently I’m receiving messages with this shitty “makeover” again, because it was posted on 9gag (http://9gag.com/gag/aZPdo53#_=_). This version is not only changed, but also cropped of my signature and with no credits.
You have no idea how annoying it is to see your work being used by a bunch of idiots as an anit-feminism argument. Especially when you were explaining for a thousand times that THOSE WERE NOT MEN SPEAKING IN THOSE SPEECH BUBBLES.
Let’s do this again. I left the speakers behind the frame for a reason. I didn’t give them any face or gender for a reason. I know woman can be often unfair and judgmental to each other. And this is the thing - it’s also often an effect of growing up in society full of stereotypes and misogyny. It’s not always a simple victim-oppressor system. It’s much more complicated and we are all victims at some point.
JUST BECAUSE IT’S ABOUT FEMINISM DOESN’T MEAN IT’S AN ATTACK ON MEN.
So you don’t have to be so defensive. This whole “what feminists think is happening” thing misses the point completely. No, this is not what feminists think is happening. This is what you think feminists think is happening. Because - somehow - you always think feminism is about men. Even if the first words of my original comic was “Feminism is not hatred for men…”
