The Emperor's New Clothes (The Myth of Moffat's Scriptwriting 'Genius') by Claudia Boleyn

claudiaboleyn:

Today I read an article about Steven Moffat’s Doctor Who in the Arts and Books section of the Independent on Sunday. In this article, by Stephen Kelly, Moffat is criticised for his inability to write women, to complete his plots, to write the Doctor as a likeable and…

This reminded me of genius comicbook writers who must also never be challenged for their handling of women characters.

Fake Marvel Movies Featuring Female Leads: The Winsome Wasp
Janet Van Dyne is a socialite and one of the most prominent and sought-after designers in New York. She’s designed everything from red carpet gowns to an affordable line of clothing for young women. She also happens to be a superhero. After her father’s death, Jan sought out the aid of one of her father’s associates: Dr. Hank Pym. During a visit to Dr. Pym’s lab, Jan was accidentally doused with his Pym particles, causing her to develop the astonishing ability to change her size at will. Once her father’s death was avenged, Dr. Pym chose to give up his brief stint as Ant-Man. Jan, however, decided to use her new abilities to help people. Her size-changing abilities, coupled with the wings she sprouts in her diminutive form and the brilliant yellow energy blasts that emit from her perfectly-manicured hands have led her to take on the identity of the Wasp. Now she strives to balance her time between her fashion career and her life as a superhero. It isn’t easy, but, hey, at least she has the most stylish costumes. 

Most of my heroine paintings (traditional, water-soluble oil) sort of fit this genre, oddly, though they are my own characters!

nortonism:

The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…

YES.

Girls don’t let anyone tell you loving yourself is vanity.

I’ll take it, because that endless male-gaze-orientation in art is sometimes really discouraging and somewhat exhausting.

THE QUEST Show Opening.

I… I actually think it may be impossible to win the Quest unless you’re ethical. In each session with the three Fates, the question rears its head again ‘Does this person have the character (as in integrity) to be a hero?’

I keep feeling like bullied kids should be watching this so they can actually witness moments where the rampantly strong defend the weak. That happened tonight when one of the smart, patient women heroes was injured in the woods during a contest, she howled in pain, and the victors tore off into the darkness to find and free her. Moreover, there is no ‘weak link’ so far — no ‘The women are smaller and weaker’ — except for the inability to behave in a manner befitting an upright person. Tonight? A conniving guy was caught betraying a team of heroes and was banished!

Clearly, part of what makes you heroic is how you act when you are defeated.

My artwork “The Truth Hurts” (mixed media on textured vinyl record) for the VOV ( Vinyl on Vinyl ) inaugural show. Please don’t forget to visit their new gallery in Makati! Thanks for inviting me to participate in the show, Gab! Congratulations, VOV! Please see more tagged Instagram photos of VOV opening show and amazing awesome artworks. (last photo by Ryan and Garovs thanks a lot!)

Okay, seriously, if you like the art, and you’re in the area, hit up your artist’s show, yeah? No one expects you to dole out huge monies to buy something if you can’t afford it, but if you love the art, at least BE there to tell the artist.

Petition: Hong Kong Government: Legislate a ban on the sale and possession of shark fin in Hong Kong.

From Honduras to New Caledonia, from the Bahamas to the Maldives, the people have spoken. And governments have listened. Now is the time for Hong Kong to wake up! The public is ready. The business sector is behind us. Now is the time for a total sale and possession ban on shark fin in Hong Kong. By doing so, Hong Kong will take a giant step to join the conservation efforts of numerous countries around the world who have enacted shark protection legislation. In Latin America it will join Honduras. In the United States it will join California, New York, Hawaii, Washington, Maryland, Delaware and Oregon. In the Pacific region it will join Palau, Tokelau, Marshall Islands, French Polynesia, Cook Islands, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands and New Caledonia. Even China has agreed to stop serving shark fin soup at official banquets, to take effect in the next year or two.

Banning shark fin from the streets of Hong Kong will be the single most important marine conservation achievement of the year. It will be an important step towards protecting the health of our oceans. It will also remove the stain on Hong Kong’s reputation as a world-class tourism hub.

This petition is endorsed by: Shark Rescue

BALLSIEST. PETITION. EVER.

IF THERE WAS EVER A HEAD TO THIS DRAGON - THERE IT IS.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE THIS WOULD MAKE??? WITHOUT THE ISSUE OF SHARK FIN SOUP WE COULD CONCENTRATE ON THE ISSUE OF BYCATCH AND SOLVE THIS ISSUE PERMANENTLY.

Jesus, is this real? The scale is terrifying.
