women in the world and in fiction

"There are subaltern communities and histories of women, created and maintained by women, who may interpret events and their social worlds differently than the men around them (see, as one classic example in a science fiction story, James Tiptree Jr.’s “The Women Men Don’t See”)—and these communities, histories, and understandings, will vary by class and geography, by cultural background and social context, by religious affiliation and ethnic associations.

There is no one true effective way to write, or to write about, human beings; likewise there isn’t any single true effective way to write about human beings assigned to the class called female. “

` Liz Bourke for Tor.com: Sleeps With Monsters: “It is Very Simple, but in War the Simplest Things Become Very Difficult”

Comics could do with a lot fewer self-aggrandizing public disavowals of complicity in rape culture, fewer ritualistic orgies of name-calling and empty ostracization threats, and a lot more private introspection about the ways in which our own personal and professional choices are contributing to the systemic oppression of women.

Could say this about the world at large actually..

Hi there, Ming! I love your artwork! So, in my Business of Art class, we were discussing women in comics. Most of the guys in my class said that women only get jobs from editors because they’re attractive or cute. I’m the only girl in my class, so I stayed out of it to avoid trouble. As a woman trying to break into comics myself, this worries me. I’m far from what most would consider attractive, but for all the other girls out there trying to get work, what would you say to that? Thank you!

mingdoyle answered:

The short, practical answer: Most business is conducted entirely over email. Your editors may hire you, work with you for years, and if you don’t post selfies or attend conventions, they may never know what you look like. Even if they do know what you look like, editors care more about your quality of work, your timeliness and your professionalism, than any selfie. Be fearless, do the work, make connections online, and of course you can flourish!

The long, twisted answer: Yes. We’re women, it’s inevitable that we’ll be judged, coveted, and derided purely on the basis of our looks, our age, our perceived sexual availability. These judgments crash against us at every turn in life. They’re inescapable, and yes, explicitly or implicitly, from men and from women, you will confront these judgments and many more during your professional career.  (continues here)

Please reblog! I didn’t quite sell my boots, but I did sell a lot of books to fund this - so I’m only off by one letter. I’m still building Chance Press’s tumblr empire, so blasting this out to your legions of followers would be a huge help to me.

Daniel Burwin of Cognito Comics talks about the Elements of Interactive Storytelling giving a brief history on the connection between video games and that of emerging applications forwarding interactive comics. One note he makes is the striving intention to close the gap between action oriented games and the emotional depth present in the more static comic layouts.

Cognito Comics put out an interactive graphic novel styled application called Operation Ajax about the the coup of Iran’s first democratically elected Prime Minister.
