This is one of my favorite quotes about sexualization/objectification vs autonomy of female bodies bc it’s so succinct
That reminded us of this:
Literally, ignore them.
Don’t invite any parts of them into your space.
I’m performing in a show tonight even though my heart’s not in it, hoping it’ll get my mind off my brother’s death. I really don’t know if it’s the right thing to do or a stupid thing to do.
my father once called me stupid, or rather tried to call me stupid, when I was in - my late teens? early 20s? He’d already made me so secure in my intelligence by then (as had my mother, my siblings, my schools) that there was no way in hell those words could effect me and I told him that in no uncertain terms. He was a dear man in many ways but he could also be mean. Or try to be.
I’m not the smartest person around, but stupid? nah. Good try daddio
ok my FB friends are probably tired of me freaking out when a celebrity follows me on twitter, but I have to tell someone, I just noticed Richard Lewis is following me! I didn’t catch it in real time. I love him! It’s silly I know, to get starstruck. But there you have it.
Thanks for listening

this dumbass motherfucker on twitter better get a clue quick I am not in the mood
Terrifying and beautiful.
Despite the fact that she’s murdered people, illegally sent people to prison, black mailed people, run a covert government organization that resulted in people being killed, I have great love for Amanda Waller. Amanda was different than other female characters. She had power. She never played by the rules. She had her own agenda and did not suffer fools gladly. And she is a patriot who loves her country. But it’s a tough love. The kind of love, perhaps, one learns after having as tough a life as Amanda Waller. How many other characters in comics are widows who move out the Cabrini-Green projects and end up working for the president of the United States?
But the main thing that was great about Amanda was that she looked like no else in comics. Women of color are rare enough. Women leading teams are rare enough. But a black woman in power old enough to have grown children and who was not thin like a supermodel ? That was groundbreaking.
That’s why I, like many other people, was taken aback to see the Amanda Waller in the new 52 yesterday. Here she is again in case you didn’t read this:
Below are some thoughts on “the Wall.”
Amanda Waller, who represented two under represented groups of people in comics, women of color and people of size, now represents just one.
I get it it must be a return to the most “iconic ver… wait Amanda Waller has something to say …
I hear you Amanda, I hear you.
Not everyone looks the same in this world. There are people in wheelchairs and people of size. I’d like to see some in my comics, too.
