feminism never made me hate men but the reaction to feminism sure as shit did
some men* you literally cannot hate people you’ve never met or even heard of.

I’m a hobbit
I don’t mean any of that fictionsexual bullshit, like
I am a short, chubby, hairy homebody
who eats second breakfast
At the 59 Diner here in town, there’s a guy who used to work there who was The Best Waiter They Had, and we’re pretty sure that his last name was Gamgee. We referred to him as the Short Order Hobbit.
Look, here’s the deal. Whenever this subject comes up, this inevitable “oh no Transformers aren’t humans why should they have gender” comes up. And it’s a weird fucking argument to me. Why? Because Transformers are in overwhelming amounts already human. 99.9% of them have two eyes, a mouth, a nose, four fingers and a thumb on each hand, a torso, two arms, two legs, feet, heels, and generally look like metal people. And this is all necessary and obviously we want Transformers to continue looking like that, right? So then why is having a gender a bridge too damn far? Why is it that having them be male and female makes them suddenly unrealistic aliens? They are already cartoon metal people! They are metal homo sapiens, down to the appearance of wearing helmets and having lips and speaking through their mouths like humans do, with their mouths forming phonemes as air passes through them and everything. They have noses. They have NOSES, like, built into their faces, for no damn reason, because those noses rarely have nostrils.
They are just dang metal humans. And so, for no damn reason that I can see as logical, having gender is not included as something these metal humans from space can have. Gender is the weird thing.
Frankly, if gender is out, so is most of Transformers-as-we-know-it. They should be incomprehensible bug creatures or maybe weird barely-sentient clouds that somehow form into Trans-Ams and F-15s. They should never be able to speak English or interact with us in any meaningful fashion, if this is going to be Super Real Sci-Fi.
And who the fuck wants that? This is something that kids need to buy. They need to walk into a store, see a dude who can turn into a car, and want to buy that dude who turns into a car. All I’m saying is, a girl should be able to buy a version of herself that can turn into a car as well.
(And, of course, they don’t all have to be gendered. Like in humans, there can be Transformers who identify outside of that binary.)
But having gender something that is already hardcoded into Transformers, no matter how much the property tries to fight it when it gets all condescending and “Good” Sci-Fi-panderingy about how Transformers are totally genderless aliens. The fuck they are. They’re barely aliens. They have noses.
They have NOSES.
I had more panels planned but it works nice like this. I might finish the rest later…!
Old Apple NOSTALGIAAAA
Man, I loved this era. The fact that they were coming back as consumer products was cool, and then when the iBooks hit, it was just exciting.
(I feel a little bad that I took our Lime iMac DV to be recycled a couple of months ago. That was a good machine that served us well for many, many years.)

FOX NEWS SAID SOME INCREDIBLY STUPID BULLSHIT ABOUT COMICS AGAIN
By Chris Sims
The great thing about Fox News is that it’s only Tuesday and you’re already about to see the dumbest thing you’ll see all week.
In this case, it’s a clip from Fox’s weekend morning show, where three people with the collective brains of a sack of doorknobs turn their reasoned and well-thought out opinions to the world of comic books. Specifically taking on Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman’s upcoming run on Thor, where the iconic Marvel hero will get a new identity as a woman, and complaining about Wonder Woman’s costume in the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice film by comparing it to Jim Lee’s redesign from four years ago that, according to them, appears to be a product of what they characterize as fundamentalist Sharia Law.
No, really, this dope on the left actually says that.
Before they get to comics, though, the Fox Friends turn their dead-eyed smiles to a tragedy of epic proportions, blasting animator Genndy Tartakovsky‘s upcoming Popeye film for removing the sailor man’s “iconic” pipe. The reason behind this is, of course, that this movie is for children and, in general, having a character for children using tobacco products is a bad idea what with that whole thing where they give you cancer and heart disease. According to Fox News, however, the original Popeye smoked a pipe, and since medical science hasn’t learned anything new about how smoking affects you in the past seventy years, this must be part of the ongoing liberal plot to “wussify” America, which pretty rich coming from a guy who famously got bullied out of wearing bow ties on television.
That man is of course Tucker Carlson (he’s the dimwit on the left, in case you’re unfamiliar with this confederacy of dipsh*ts), who even goes as far as to make a truly aneurysm-inducingly stupid comparison: “Popeye driving around giving the morning-after pill to fourth graders, that would be fine, but smoking a pipe, a symbol of masculinity and freedom and America itself, the reason this country exists, tobacco, that’s like… oh, that’s outrageous.” And you know, maybe it’s just that I’ve had to bash myself in the head with a hammer a couple dozen times just to get through watching this video, but I’m starting to think he’s right. Fourth graders should have the GOD-GIVEN AMERICAN FREEDOM to have as many babies and cancers as they want! I guess? That’s what he’s saying, right? And then they talk about how Popeye was a good message for the kids about eating your spinach, and smoking.
Also, they refer to the screenshots of the Popeye movie as “photos,” which makes me think that they actually think Popeye is a real person and not a computer drawing of an imaginary sailor.
Once that’s done, they move on to Thor, and it’s at this point where you can see three human beings (or at least three somewhat convincing reptilian simulacra) turn into a YouTube Comments Section given human form.
