[The rise of the Carol Corps] is amazing and I am tremendously grateful to have been present for it. I get emotional talking to these girls and women who say how much Captain Marvel means to them and that it’s inspired them. It’s very important to me that the Carol Corps not be identified strongly with me, though. Because as important as Carol Danvers is to me, I don’t own Carol and I will not be writing her forever. I would love it if the Carol Corps continued to exist outside of my personality. The friendships that I see forming from this group remind me so much of the friendships I formed on the Warren Ellis Forum. As much as it was about Ellis, it was also a community separate from him and those are my friends and colleagues today, fifteen years later. I hope that the Carol Corps surpasses my tenure on the book and that the friendships I see forming there surpass my own.

Coming soon - Sailor Moon hair clips!

We’ve received numerous requests for hairclips. So we have put our 3d printer to work. These hairclips are printed from pearly white plastic and are a little different than your standard hairclips. There winged part attaches to the metal alligator clip by neodymium magnets. This allows for lots of versatility, and makes them really easy to place and position in your hair. You can actually hide the metal clip within your hair, and place the winged part over top of it (as illustrated in the first picture). They are also fairly light weight and comfortable, I often forget that I am wearing them! ^___^;; We kind of went through all our plastic while we were printing our prototypes, so we hope to have them up in the shop next month. We plan to sell them for $25/pair.

Also, just a reminder that I opened some pre-orders for most compacts and necklaces.

We just want it on record that we think this is a brilliant use of neodymium magnets and we would like the hair accessory industry to explode with more items like this.

I think a lot of people in general are desensitized to it. That’s the bigger issue. We see it thrown into our media so often, it becomes “no big deal” to many, and that’s scary. Rape is a big deal. Consider the effect the scene in Game of Thrones might have in a world already throwing around phrases like “legitimate rape” or “rape-rape.” People try to add these qualifiers or make excuses for why something isn’t rape, and that’s exactly what’s happening in response to this episode in particular. It’s why so many rapes go unreported or why many rapists don’t think they’re actually rapists. It’s a horrifying thought and it’s something being perpetuated in our entertainment unnecessarily and without caution.

#completely convinced marvel just finds the actual characters to play their parts

Marvel’s casting department cannot be beat. Literally all of the actors are their characters.

Sarah Halley Finn, casting director for Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor: Dark World, Captain America: Winter Soldier, Agents of SHIELD, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, and every single Marvel one-shot. All hail the queen. 

ALL HAIL THE QUEEN!!!

ALL HAIL

Coulson takes the opportunity of her unconsciousness to kiss her forehead and promise her that he’s still with her, protecting her. Waking up a moment later, she tells the other agents that for a moment she thought she saw her Phil with them, but it must have been a dream. They corroborate/gaslight her into believing that her senses were wrong, which is just a little creepy. Especially for somebody who the police refused to believe when she reported her stalker, and whose foundation of trust in SHIELD and Coulson is based on the idea that he would never lie to her or be part of an organization that lies.

The Indian woman, Dr. Anandi Gopal Joshi, was the first Indian woman to earn a degree in Western medicine, and also believed to be the first Hindu woman to set foot on American soil.
The Japanese woman, Dr. Kei Okami, was the first Japanese woman to obtain a degree in Western Medicine.

For those interested, here’s more information on other women of color who attended and graduated from Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia in the past, with a focus on the Japanese-American women they accepted during the US WW2 internment of Japanese-Americans.

Batgirl!

Above is my entry for Project: Rooftop’s recent “Batgirl Begins Again” costume redesign contest, celebrating the sites eight-year anniversary.

Today they announced their “Top 3 Entries” for the contest, and I’m happy to say I find myself as one of them. Paired with two stellar designs by the incredible Chris Samnee and Elizabeth Beals, I’m pleased as punch.

Please do click on through to their site to see all three designs as well as scoring and comments from the P:R panel of judges.

Speaking of which, I tried to address their very valid point about Barbara’s cape, doing a quick fix where I extended the fabric up over her shoulder and neck, adding a zipper, so it’d be less likely to fall off.

Brett White (of Matt and Brett Love Comics) said “this is a design that I could easily see on a dozen+ cosplayers…” and I so hope he’s right! That’d be awesome.

Let me know if you do!

Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime, acknowledged in an interview with The Daily Beast that ‘for some people, it’s just going to look like rape,’ but ‘the intention is that it’s not just that; it’s about two people who’ve had this connection for so many years, and much of it is physical, and much of it has had to be kept secret, and this is almost the last thing left now. It’s him trying to force her back and make him whole again because of his stupid hand.’ So, is it rape? ‘Yes, and no. There are moments where she gives in, and moments where she pushes him away. But it’s not pretty.’ Just my opinion here, but if your answer to ‘Is it rape?’ is ‘yes and no,’ then it’s probably rape.

I’ve never been female. But I have been black my whole life. I can perhaps offer some insight from that perspective. There are many similar social issues related to access to equal opportunity that we find in the black community, as well as the community of women in a white male dominate society…

When I look at — throughout my life — I’ve known that I wanted to do astrophysics since I was 9 years old…I got to see how the world around me reacted to my expressions of these ambitions. All I can say is, the fact that I wanted to be a scientist, an astrophysicist was hands down the path of most resistance through the forces of society.

Anytime I expressed this interest, teachers would say, ‘Oh, don’t you wanna be an athlete?’ I want to become someone that was outside of the paradigm of expectations of the people in power. Fortunately, my depth of interest of the universe was so deep and so fuel enriched that everyone of these curve balls that I was thrown, and fences built in front of me, and hills that I had to climb, I just reach for more fuel, and I just kept going.

Now, here I am, one of the most visible scientists in the land, and I wanna look behind me and say, ‘Where are the others who might have been this,’ and they’re not there! …I happened to survive and others did not simply because of forces of society that prevented it at every turn. At every turn.

…My life experience tells me that when you don’t find blacks, when you don’t find women in the sciences, I know that these forces are real, and I had to survive them in order to get where I am today.

So before we start talking about genetic differences, you gotta come up with a system where there’s equal opportunity, then we can have that conversation.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson in response to a question posed by Lawrence Summers, former Treasury Security and Harvard University President

"What’s up with chicks and science?"

Are there genetic differences between men and women, explain why more men are in science.

Black Superheroes in Comic Book Movies.

I wanted to make this to show my appreciation to black superheroes. As you can see, it’s not a lot of them in Hollywood films. But, unlike DC, I can respect Marvel for featuring several black superheroes in their comic book movies. And we are still waiting on Black Panther, Green Lantern (John Stewart), Static and many more.

“I just know how things are. How many Starks need to be beheaded before you figure that out?” Forget my cop show idea. How about we reboot Punky Brewster with these characters? The Hound takes in Arya, a scrappy orphan with an unconventional fashion sense, and through her spunky adventures (like seeking bloody vengeance on the enemies of her family) he teaches her valuable life lessons, like sword naming is for c*nts and the weak don’t deserve silver!
