I Came. I Saw. I Told a Story.

It’s a REALLY long post… Too long for Tumblr, unfortunately.

↳ F → feminism & representation
"I certainly came up in an era where women were really making strides and making a point to beat down doors and find their place, and crash through the glass ceiling. And a lot of them did that believing that they had to trade on their femininity and that they had to be a man and tap into whatever they believed was a masculine trait to hang in the boys’ room, to get the "keys to the kingdom" as it were. And what’s beautiful about Jessica Pearson is that she is the next level to that when, really, feminism is about being all that you are and not having to trade one thing for another on your way up, or apologize." - Gina Torres (about her character Jessica Pearson, on Suits)

Yep! GO GINA!

I … I want to see this. I consider American Psycho a black comedy, and the idea of it as a musical starring Matt Smith? Very intriguing. 

My brain just broke.

Earlier today I received an email from a high school English teacher in Strasburg, Colorado who plans to teach an elective Young Adult literature course. A group of parents created a petition to “cleanse” the book list, claiming that the majority of the books on the curriculum, “are profane, pornographic, violent, criminal, crass, crude, vile, and will result in the irreparable erosion of my students’ moral character.”

Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska have been targeted in particular, and the press attended the most recent school board meeting. The motion has been tabled for the next meeting at 7:00 pm on April 9th at Strasburg High School: 56729 e. Colorado Ave, Strasburg, CO 80136.

Please join me in emailing letters of support of the teacher at Strasburg who has heroically stood by her curriculum and stood alone at School Board meetings defending the books. It’s important to keep your letter as civil as possible, even if this kind of thing turns you into a giant squid of anger.

Letters should be addressed "To the School Board" and emailed to StrasburgYALiteratureCourse@gmail.com. It would also be a great help to attend the next School Board meeting if you live in the area.

I am extremely grateful to those who have come out in support of my books on the various occasions they have been challenged, who understand that I am not out to corrupt teenagers, and who further understand the importance of reading books critically and thoughtfully as a whole, rather than focusing on individual scenes ripped from their context. Thanks for supporting my books, and thanks for being awesome.

Full proposed curriculum below the jump.

I’ve just listed this original Rocket Raccoon illustration over on Ebay.
They’re picky about how you list items for charity over there, so it’s not mentioned in the listing, but I’ll be donating the total price of this piece directly to Bill Mantlo’s ongoing care.
It’s an original pen-and-ink illustration with grayscale coloring on white 8.5”x11” cardstock. You can see and bid on the piece here, and let me know if you have any questions - thanks!

Cool
