There is not much to say, I reblog mostly about feminism, celebrities, things I think are funny but mainly I post about fandom related stuff. I also like to reblog things of beauty.
Anonymous said: First of all, Manara is an erotica artist. He does some fan art and superheroines, but he's not a comic illustrator. The pose in that spider-woman picture, evidently is an impossible position to be in. But i doubt it was sexism. The drawing was supposed to be sexy and serious, just like the rest of his work.
Of course it was sexism. You don’t see him drawing men like that, do you? I don’t have a problem with erotica. But do you not see the problem with getting an artist who specialises in erotica to do a cover of a comic when it features a woman whose purpose isn’t to be erotic, rather to be the lead hero in her own damned comic title? That right there, drawing her erotically just because Jessica is a woman, is sexism.
If you can’t see that, I can’t help you, buddy.
I think one of the most significant moments you can have as a language learner is when you know the meaning of a word, but you can’t explain it in your native language. Because, as frustrating as it may be, it does confirm that that particular language is carving out its own autonomous little nook of your brain.
