"People are perfectly happy to see women as sex objects, but the actual biologic of our bodies is apparently gross and unmentionable."

These things actually permeate your brain and plant little seeds that people then carry around with them and influence how they behave. And it’s so important to analyze this, especially when you have an audience of MILLIONS.
i’m sad this had to be explained. but hopeful that people like chescaleigh have the patience to explain it.

Hate to say it, but she’s no Kate Bishop.
Don’t you sass me, child.
I’m a 42 year old mother of 2. Yesterday, I *slept in* until 4:30am, got my babies up and fed, planned an Easter brunch menu, finished a batch of rewrites, worked all day writing more comics than you, managed to sneak in 30 minutes on the treadmill and a quick shower before grabbing my hilarious and brilliant husband, two amazing children and double-batch potluck dish and heading to a seder at the home of two of our best friends, where I *rocked* playing with my daughter and her new bow & arrow out on the porch.
Kate Bishop is great. I love Kate. But she’s a fiction, sweetheart, and she’s no fucking me.
That is some excellent burn on random internet haters. Brava!
It’s On Us:
To RECOGNIZE that non-consensual sex is sexual assault.
To IDENTIFY situations in which sexual assault may occur.
To INTERVENE in situations where consent has not or cannot be given.
To CREATE an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.
"I knew I had to date him, that was it. So I made a date with Scott later. [But] Cher had just been to see Sunset Boulevard. And she hunted me down the next day through management, people, whatever.
"They said, ‘Cher wants to have dinner with you.’ And I said: ‘I can’t… have dinner with her.’ And there was a dead silence at the end of the phone: ‘What?!’ ‘I can’t have dinner with Cher because I have a date tonight with Scott.’
"They went: ‘Right, hold on.’ Click. On hold. Over to the other line. Apparently they were going to ask her: ‘He’s got a date, and he doesn’t want to break it.’
"That was the chance of a lifetime for me. I’m not talking about having dinner with Cher, but my date with Scott. The management came back to me and said: ‘Fine, she says, bring him.’
”[…] And we all met up and had dinner with Cher and we had a fab time. At the end of the evening, she said to me: ‘Walk me to my car, you’ll love it.’ As we were walking to the car arm-in-arm, the photographers came out of the bushes, you name it.[…] And the next day in the tabloids, I was her new boytoy.
"But little did they know, the boy with the bicycle that walked out after us went and unhooked his bike. I put her in the car, went off, got my Jag, opened the trunk, put his bike in the trunk, and I took him home. And he stayed. For eighteen years now.”
