Oh California I'm so Proud


We rank 50, that's right 50 and ghee I wonder why is it because we elect the same yahoo's to office every  year is it the fact that two major cities are in control of the entire state, is it the over rampant fraud done by those who run or some of the workers of the state.
I recently went on Facebook, and a couple of comics forums and boy do I regret it.
In light of recent events a rumor was spreading around the internet like a wildfire that Warner Brothers was going to pull the Dark Knight Rises from theaters  however this turned out not to be true, but that didn't stop some of the fanboys from rallying and raving.
When I read what they wrote I just felt sick, at there entitled attitudes. People are dead children are hurt families are destroyed and all they can think about is the possibility of not seeing a fucking movie. Personally I think it would have been in good taste to pull the film, much like Stephen King pulled one of his early works from books because it involved a school shooting and in my mind that move showed class. But this is Hollywood and when has it ever shown class, much less respect, hell Warner Brothers might see this a a golden opportunity. 

We live in a culture of violence, we worship killings as if they were a god, perhaps this is for creators to reflect and think about what they are doing, perhaps it's time we as a people reflect and think about where we are going, if we don't how do we expect a brighter future, we need to see each other as human beings and not trash to be thrown away. Perhaps it's time to use words wisely instead of saying who or who should die.

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

The Trouble with Pandering

As others have so eliquently put it the issue with Starfire as she is portrayed in the Outlaws is not her liberated sexuality it is in how it is presented to the public.

as seen here : http://io9.com/5844355/a-7%20year%20old-girl-responds-to-dc-comics-sexed%20up-reboot-of-starfire

the seven year old here was me way back in the day. Back when I was a little girl in the late eighties to mid ninties I loved superhero's and my favorite superhero's were Wonder Woman which my mom said I watched daily to Supergirl and Superman. When I was older I loved the X-men cartoon and would gleefully get up every saterday morining to watch my favorite hero's. I would stop at this drug store and read my favorite issues while waiting for my mom to finish her shopping. After a while I began to noticed that the images of the woman were overly sexualized as compared to the males and it became a major turn off causing me to drop comics until college when on a whim I picked up an issue of Robin and met Spoiler. I read comics after that and reignighted my old dream of going into animation and comics. That was until war games when I stopped altogether only to look now and see no reason to go back.

Because Why Should I

Why should I pick up your product if your only going to dehumanize me?

And what do I tell the little girl who loves Wonder Woman why her sex is being raped and killed for a plot point.

Do I tell her that she is less than a man

To switch to manga because that is what you and some of the other fans are telling me. That my doller is worth less than his.

What do I tell her what do I say?

that's the trouble with pandering to one group. You end up losing all.

Idiots of the week

In searching the net for news one come upon the moronic

for example :


What made this lady think that people in the neighborhood would accept this?

I'm all for celebrating who you are but there are places for it.

What a dumb ad

What a dumb ad


and all I can say is well how typical.

This reminds me of the Airbender and Prince of Persia debates
on a more personal note I found Avatar to be quite racist in and of it's self because it seemed that they were cherry picking stereotypes to present and what a couple of white guys think in college is not a representation on a whole.

As to Persia something based on a video game produced by Disney is not a realistic representation of the people of Persia which is modern day Iraq if were based on a Persian legend I'd been more offended but it was a damn video game which was unrealistic in and of it's self.
After hearing What went down at SDCC I thought I'd pass this along
