This is my random blog for whatever I come across and/or does not fit the theme of my other blogs.

It still amazes me that I talk to guys who still think they get harassed just as much as women online. Like even from people who aren’t clearly and totally gross dumbasses. It kinda makes me think that, even in the best cases, it might be hard to really understand the sheer difference in frequency. You see a woman get harassed on a game and you go “Oh well I’ve been harassed” without understanding that there is seldom a session for her where that doesn’t happen or understanding what her inbox might look like…
That is a sort of stunning degree of difference.
"The data’s in! Women were lying about online harassment!”
"Aha! We knew it!"
“Yeah, they’ve been severely underreporting how bad things are for them, turns out.”
The first issue of Gotham Academy hits the stands and screens tomorrow. If you heard the 3 Chicks Podcast review and interview with Becky Cloonan, you know I love the book. If you haven’t done so, I’d call my shop and ask them to hold a copy if you’re a floppy reader.
I honestly believe this book could, along with Ms. Marvel, be the change agent for comics.
