I’d rather get a double double and some Timbits.
This couldn’t be more relevant to my interests.

I was kind of just wondering why Tumblr isn’t talking about this fabulously crude comic about awesome ladies.
I love this comic!!!
New comic about NAMES! I’ve mentioned name stuff before in a previous “do and don’t” comic, but I fleshed the idea out a little further because its a pet peeve of mine. But a bigger problem that affects a lot more people in different more scaring ways
The Vagenda Magazine asked their Twitter followers to tweet them edited headlines
This is my favourite thing at the moment
roller derby is objectively the best sport because it’s 75% badass ladies and 25% terrible puns
The odds of being attacked by a shark in the US are 1 in 11,500,000, but no one gets mad at people who want to avoid the ocean.
The odds of a woman being sexually assaulted in her lifetime are 1 in 6, but if she doesn’t feel safe around strange men she’s a stereotyping bitch.
Strange old world we live in.
NO SEX, PLEASE; WE’RE PRINTERS: ‘SMUT PEDDLER’ CREATOR SPIKE TROTMAN ON THE CHALLENGE OF PUBLISHING PORN
American printing houses: We need to talk.
I coordinate an erotic comic anthology called Smut Peddler. The 2014 edition is on Kickstarter right now, and it’s slaying. Owning. Knockin’ ‘em dead. Far and away, the most popular KS project I’ve ever run. And I’m glad its been so well-received, because otherwise it wouldn’t be worth the aggravation.
Have you ever tried to print comic book porno? Not a picnic. I know where to look, thanks to two years of experience and the aid of a freelance print production manager, but it still took two weeks and a dozen price quotes. I had to assemble a PDF of what I call “the black diamond pages,” or the most potentially objectionable content, to send around with the quote requests. I had to double and triple-check. “There is sex in this. There are sex organs in this. There is penetration in this. Is that okay? Are you sure? Very sure? Did you see the PDF?”
I don’t enjoy being a pain in the ass; I do it because I can’t just assume. I’ve heard all the horror stories. Printers ditching a job halfway through pre-press. Printers pulling out after the proof stage. Printers price-gouging when they think they’re your only option. I’ll have 4,000 Kickstarter backers waiting on me before this is over; I can’t let this go up in smoke.
Before you say these are reasonable obstacles on the path to producing graphic content, know that the first printer I approached — the first house, a personal favorite I’d worked with before — happily produced my previous anthology, a horror collection called The Sleep of Reason.
Smut Peddler features consensual oral sex. The Sleep of Reason features a man getting his dick bitten off.
Something for my feminist theory class.
I’d love to see the reactions to this from a crowd. I can kind of imagine a quiet, solemn understanding from the ladies and a lot of confused questions from the guys… If my memory of art school serves me.
