That was absolutely beautiful, and actually changed my mind about the Dickwolf shirts. Internet confession: I was the one who yelled “bring them back”. I didn’t do it because I hate feminists. I didn’t do it because I hate women. I did it because I felt like those shirts were a justified “fuck you” to […]

Trisha’s Take: The next step in fixing the “Mike Krahulik Problem” at Penny Arcade

My reaction when I feel backed into corner is to be an asshole. It’s essentially how I defend myself. It’s been that way since was in elementary school. I’m 36 now.

Trisha’s Quote of the Day: How to apologize on the Internet, part 2

Comic Non-Sans: Why I Hate the Fanart Debate

I’m heading off to Katsucon this weekend, as are many other arty types, in hopes of selling Stuff, Stuff, and Other Stuff.  And, you know, seeing people and enjoying myself, because once in a while that’s still what conventions are about.  Except for the bits where fights break out and people get angry and things […]
