Dear Making Comics Students,

This is a video I’d like you to watch or listen to while you are doing your coloring pages. You don’t have to look up very often, and I know you heard half of it in class today, already. But I’ve listened to it many times and today I still heard new things and these new things gave me the joyous shivers.

Coloring something by hand will help you listen and help you retain what you heard.

Sincerely,

Prof. Bootsy

I loved this scene so much. The actors play off this pairing as flirty and adorable in a way the characters really weren’t in the novels IMO. 

That said, when she said the line, “Girls see more blood than boys,” my husband was all confused and like, “What, warrior women, she means?”

So I just looked at him and started listing off, “Blood from their periods every month, maybe blood from sex, blood from childbirth, blood from tending and washing the wounded and dead…That’s been true for most of womankind all through history.”

And he got very, very quiet.

Seriously why does anyone think women would faint at the sight of blood. WE SEE BLOOD ALL THE TIME.

Dear Students,
Draw this picture in your comp book for extra credit. Set a timer for 20 minutes and when it goes off, you have 5 to 10 minutes to finish it. Remember to draw your frame, draw the cigarette and leave the pants off of the guy on the far left. Sometimes, pants are too much so we just won’t wear them.
Sincerely,
Prof. Bootsy

For me and my friends growing up, being told things like ‘you have to wear this because that’s what boys wear” or “dresses are for not for your body type” was frustrating and a pretty bad time.




The bottom line for me is, if someone feels happier and more comfortable in a particular ‘type’ of uniform, then that’s something that should be encouraged, not punished. Students have enough to focus on at school, having to fight to be yourself shouldn’t be added to that.



That’s why we’ve launched a new campaign called Gender is Not Uniform.

I love this.

Done and done.

(Not pictured: “Butt window”, but trust me, it’s there.)

You have no idea how much this cheered me up just now.

I for one, think this is a major improvement. Look how empowered he is! And it’s relevant to the character as someone who is powered by the sun, he’d want to maximize the amount of sunlight he receives, right? It’s not like it makes sense for him to cover himself from chin to toe.
In fact, I think some strappy sandals might be an improvement.

strappy high heeled sandals would increase his height making him closer to the sun. and if wonderwoman can fight in heels it can’t be that hard, right?

SO EMPOWERING

Felt a dire need to contribute to the hilarity.

Now I can tell right away he’s a strong male character. Whew! No more confusion.
