Irritations

I've read this book. It doesn't do gender very well, tis true. But the fact that the critic is routinely trying to deny the Asian-identity of the writer and of people who disagree with the critique of the book (I'm glad my Asian heritage isn't as authentic as yours, [personal profile] pyrofennec!) makes me angry.

I've been seeing various ramblings about [community profile] notgreenorblue and it looks like people are gearing up to ruin the whole experience with wank. Could we maybe stay focused on the point? That would be fantastic.

Have been checking out the solicits for upcoming comics. Someday I will understand why the hell anyone at Marvel thinks the Stupid Pimp Retcon should continue to be a part of their canon, but today is not that day. Sadly, I will still probably be picking up Falcon's one-shot, because that art is spectacular.

- [community profile] notgreenorblue is still in the claiming stage and continues to go well. I'm just pleased people are signing up for it, considering that neither Tony Stark nor Bruce Wayne are available characters. I'm also pleased that a variety of characters so far have been claimed.

The greatest surprise in the fest so far has been the number of Misty Knight prompts. It was a fantastic surprise, to be sure.

I'm very thankful to everyone who has helped signal boost that community. You are all wonderful.

- It is a wonderful thing, having a girlfriend who can cook. My own cooking skills are not the best. In the words of my mother: "I expected you to grow up to be a man! Otherwise I would have taught you how to cook better!"

Ah, my mother's acceptance. A slow process and full of its own brand of fail. I love her anyway.

Anyway, the girlfriend's Pantry Soup (as in, let's toss a bit of everything we have in the pantry into the pot) is quite tasty for dinner and for breakfast.

- I've recently received a job offer that will take me to the midwest U.S. The pay is better, but the probable lack of diversity in the area troubles me.

- The rec spamming I had intended to do when I started this journal has been rather sadly neglected. Must get back on that.

Man, the comments of THIS POST make me want to go HULK SMASH.

"This is so interesting, because, for me, defending a het space -- while it may seem ridiculous -- is kind of what fandom needs,"

NO.

Also, NO.

How hard it must be, to be a pure privileged heterosexual in desperate need of a safe space.

GRR and ARGH.

Welcome

This is going to be the standard welcome post to my journal.

Welcome! Please read the user info if you are interested in getting to know me better or in following this journal. Some truths may make you uncomfortable, and it is better for you not to be here, if that will be the case, especially if you have bigotry and privilege issues to work out.

Primarily, I intend to use this journal as a fanfic review (I'm not really a fanfic writer), squee, and meta. My primary fandom is comics, but I inhale all sorts of geekish pursuits.
