E-Nabling the Future is an organization of volunteers who produce 3D-printed prosthetic superhero arms for kids in need.
This is bloody brilliant!
People are honest to God falling for that “charge iOS8 iPhones by microwaving them” hoax and all I gotta say is that if you’re dumb enough to believe that, you don’t deserve any piece of technology more advanced than an Etch a Sketch.
ive had this joke up my sleeve since november
I’ve kind of gotten stupid fast at cleaning this store. Waiting on 9 pm so I can lock up and hopefully these last couple of customers will be gone by then.
Anyway here’s a somewhat random half-formed thought.
Some of you might remember about a year ago I got a somewhat ironic criticism on my comic saying that I was fetishizing gay men. I don’t think I am but if I’m gonna objectify or fetishize anyone it’s totes gonna be men so okay.
But there was also a sort of implication that part of that was that I’d never had anything bad happen to Gabry and Liam as a direct result of their being a gay couple.
Anyway here’s the actual thought: I’ve read several comics written by cis gay men where overt homophobia is a plot point. E.G. character gets assaulted for being gay and he fights them off or a love interest swoops in and saves him. And honestly I’m kind of over that kind of thing?
I get that that does happen in reality but I feel like in fiction it’s kind of lazy writing? Especially when it’s a recurring theme in every story. Like there’s plenty of other ways to add some conflict or action to a story without doing that.
On the other hand I do include more overt prejudices towards fictional groups in my comic so IDK maybe I’m way off base here?
It’s kind of homophobic for them to say ‘nothing bad every happens to them because they’re gay’…Are we really so used to homophobia in life that we can’t even have fiction without it? Is that what gay acceptance is to cis/straight people?
"Well there’s a gay character but you HAVE to make them the victim of a hate-crime or it’s fetishizing!"
Reminds me of how women can’t exist in media without being rape victims… :/ Seriously, what the fuck is with that person?
You keep doing what you’re doing, Kyt, I love your series(es) to death and It’s VERY refreshing to see happy gay couples for once. Not everything has to be death drama complications hate-crimes to be interesting. More positive representation in media, please.
If we include such things we’re not only making people aware of them, but normalizing them. People look at media and all they see is gay people being beaten and killed and worse for being gay and think ‘That’s just how the world works!’ True, it is, but that’s not ALWAYS how it is. We also need positive reinforcement so please show happy gay people more often, as often as possible.
oh look my favorite photo set
what the entire and actual existing fuck?
Wait is this shopped… Or…how is that possible…? One was made in America in 1990, the other in Japan in 1999… I mean, I guess they could have designed the school after the one in KCop but that’s really weird…why would they do that?
Today on “why do all of these images relate perfectly to the situations they are meant to describe this website is so fucking weird”
i lyke it
Color Communications Badges
We want everyone to have a good time at Mysterium, but we also know that large crowds can be a little overwhelming to some people. To help attendees who may wish to express their communication preferences quickly and non-verbally, we’ve followed BronyCon‘s lead and partnered with the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN) to make their color-coded badges available to any attendee who wants one. Use these badges to indicate to others whether you want to be approached for interactions or not.
Briefly, here’s what the colors mean:
“Come Talk To Me!” A person wearing a green badge is actively seeking interaction. They may have trouble initating conversations, but it’s okay to come up and start a conversation with them.
“Do I Know You?” A yellow badge means its wearer only wants to talk to people they recognize. Unless you’ve met this person face-to-face before, don’t start a conversation with them. If they start talking to you, you’re welcome to talk back.
“Not Right Now.” If a person has a red badge showing, they do not want anyone to talk to them. They may approach you to talk, in which case it’s okay to respond. But unless you’ve been told you’re on someone’s “red list”, don’t start interacting with them.
If you see someone wearing a yellow or red badge, please respect their wishes. If you are wearing a yellow or red badge and someone is harassing you by not respecting your preference, find the nearest Mysterium staff member immediately.
Again, these badges will be available at the registration desk to anyone who wants one. You will receive a pin-on badge holder with two cards: a green/yellow double-sided card, and a red card. We will also have signs throughout the convention spaces at the hotel and at Cyan explaining these badges.
Mysterium is the latest of a growing number of cons using color communication badges this year! We are happy to see that they, along with an expanding number of other fan conventions like VividCon and BronyCon, have decided to use this important tool to make events more accessible for more attendees.
