Tuesday Tips SUPER WEEK - Push it!
Clarity is probably the most important thing to think about at all time when boarding. Pushing your poses to an undeniable level of clarity will improve the clarity of the storytelling in general. Don’t leave space for uncertainty in posing out your characters. Your audience will be more engaged and entertained by the sequence.
This is the last post for the Super Week. I hope you enjoyed it. Back on the regular schedule next week (Every Tuesday).
What a great series. Thanks for posting these!
People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.
I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.
A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?
It is a big deal because i’m a transman.
It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.
Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.
At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.
At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.
TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.

Shelby the Worm’s home.
Italian artist Anna Utopia Giordano has created a visual re-imagination of historic nude paintings, had the subjects conformed their bodies to what the 21st century considers an ideal of beauty. The results are revealing—and quite shocking in what they say about the modern attitude toward women’s bodies.
You know what? Fat or skinny, these bitches are always super long limbed, so We the Short continue to be discriminated against, be the ideal Botticellian or Kate Mossian.
SHORT LIMBS UNITE!
Oh my God, my Dad told me about these, but I could never visualize what “a homemade flamethrower gun with matches” would be like.

Say, you know those MRAs/anti-fems/“egalitarians” who like to derail discussions about rape culture by claiming that the term referred to rape of prison inmates before being “appropriated” by feminists? There were a few on my RAINN post, but you can find them other places as well. They usually refer to a documentary which was released in 1975 and revised in ‘83, produced by Cambridge Documentary Films in conjunction with The DC Rape Crisis Center and the organization Prisoners Against Rape (PAR).
It’s worth noting that the first documented use of the term “rape culture” is in the book Rape: The First Sourcebook for Women, which was published in 1974. However, the documentary is responsible for fully defining and popularizing the term, so focusing on that instead of the book is probably fair. What’s not fair is using the documentary against feminists, especially when the people harping on about this film clearly haven’t watched it.
But I did! You can too—it’s free on Youtube, and just under thirty minutes long. Turns out that it focuses almost exclusively on rape of women by men. Yes, there is a part where inmates discuss male-on-male prison rape, but it’s brief, and they’re actually comparing the motivations for prison rape to those of the male-on-female rape that occurs outside prison.
The rest of this post is under a readmore partly because it’s long, but mostly because it contains triggering content, including statements from admitted rapists. Proceed carefully.
