Like many, I have some ‘comfort films’ I watch when I am sick or feeling low for some reason. Do you have any comic runs or graphic novels you reread often, under similar circumstances?

I cannot think of anything that helps women’s rights less than pinning the blame on trans women. They face so much violence and scrutiny as is. Leave them alone and focus on the real war on women. It’s happening in the courts and legislatures around this country.

Ok fine…we will start it. Dear Kevin Feige, Make the #mcu’s #Wolverine an indigenous Canadian. You know it makes sense. The only correct person to play this character is Martin Sensmeier. You’re welcome. 🙂

the "late-term abortion" rhetoric is and has always been stupid, intentionally misleading bullshit, but especially now for me. i work at a cemetery with a crematory, and we do cremations no charge for anyone cremating a stillbirth, nonviable pregnancy, or medical termination
