A great comic telling people to stand up for their fellow fans!
You want to know how terrible that these douche bags can get? I made a Sailor Venus cosplay for my younger sister who looked amazing and proud to wear it. I made sure she wore white shorts that covered her panties and stopped where the skirt ended, (because of the horror stories we heard about perverts taking pictures up cosplayers’ skirts without consent) Turns out there were jerks trying to take pics up her skirt, but started to complain to each other that she was wearing shorts under and it wasn’t fair. SHE WAS UNDERAGE AT THE TIME OF WEARING THIS COSPLAY! Not only were they attempting sexual harassment, but ON A MINOR! Please, reblog this, spread the word, and stand up for other cosplayers if you see/hear this.
I can’t tell you how flattered (and also somewhat triumphant) I am that my comic is still going around being shared like this. Keep doing it, and keep telling your stories, and this is how we’ll change things.
By the way, cons, the above is available in large size for printing and posting in your spaces and con books for free, just download them from here:
Spread the word!
no but kids from pureblood families going through embarrassing weaboo phases except they become obsessed with muggle pop culture
5th years carrying around pink razr phones from 2004 and awkwardly inserting “text speak” into daily conversations
11 year olds carrying plush carebears backpacks into transfiguration
everyone of them using outdated muggle slang incorrectly, making all of the muggleborns wince in pain
that is so fucking cute and hilarious
The absence of women in history is man made.

Fun fact: John Cleese was actually supposed to say some really long and complicated name, but he forgot it and just said, “Tim” and everyone just rolled with it.
I see posts all of the time about gender and gaming. Ya’ll who say that “girls don’t game” need to hush and listen for a moment.
This is my Mimal. She’s my BFF. These pictures were taken last summer, they’re of her playing the Nintendo Entertainment System that she bought when it came out and was being popularized in America. She was a stay at home mom and she thought that this gaming system would be awesome for her family (my Pipaw, my Uncle Joey, and my Mom) at night when they had game time. She used to play during the day when her kids were at school. She used to play Tetris (which, as a result of, my Mom is wicked at) and other games for this system. I
This is her, at 62, kicking MY ass at Super Mario Bros. When I was growing up I’d go to her house, eat SpaghettiOs and play this same game. I couldn’t beat the castle worlds. She did it for me. She taught me the places where I could find hidden 1UPs, world jumps, and stars. When I was young she patiently waited as I learned the mechanics of the game. When I got older she gave me guidance on the finer skills, like not jumping off a ledge. Mimal can find the turtle on the stairs and get like a bazillion extra lives. It’s crazy.
So, I’ve ranted that she’s good at the game but I would like to make one thing clear. She has fun when she’s playing this game. To her, it meant family time, alone/decompression time, and a challenge for her to explore and conquer. She’s a gamer because she likes to game.
This woman is a gamer. This woman is my Mimal. So if you think that women can’t be gamers you just think on the fact that she’s been beating Bowser’s ass for two generations. And she’s been loving every minute of it.
