Organised Confusion

Famous Women Point Out Exactly Why Leaking Nude Photos Is So Very Wrong

This past Sunday, a 4chan user posted nude and revealing photos online, supposedly hacked from the iCloud accounts of numerous female celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Lea Michele and more. While some outlets have reported this leak as a juicy celebrity “scandal,” it’s more accurately described as a sex crime.

For more celebrity reactions including Mary E. Winstead and Kirsten Dunst go here.

Brand new episode of Tropes vs Women is online! Please heed the content warning on this video. It contains some especially triggering scenes of sexual violence.

Although Feminist Frequency focuses on portrayals of women in video games, the same general problems arise in most media. Over halfway through the video, Anita Sarkeesian goes into detail on how misogyny and violence against women is often portrayed as something only ‘evil’ characters do. However, she goes on to say that the fact of the matter is ‘normal’ people do such acts as well.

I have mentioned several times before, there is no reason for an ‘evil’ character to say racist/sexist/etc things in order to show that they are bad. It’s exploitative and unrealistic, as racist/sexist/etc things are not only done by typically ‘bad’ people. By portraying these as things only ‘evil’ people do, it absolves people of their own bigotry and desensitises them to what is going on in reality. And media helps propagate that in absurd and heinous ways.

She also mentions that it’s insidious how, in non-realistic fiction and fantasy, people claim that violence against women is ‘necessary’ because it’s ‘realistic’ or ‘accurate’. Violence against women is NOT everlasting and does not have to be continued. It should not be accepted nor expected in this reality or even fiction. One of the ways that can change is by how media portrays women. Generations of people are desensitised to violence against women (as well as racism and other forms of oppression) simply because that is what we’re shown, taught, and grew up with. By changing what media we consume, evolution of society can occur and violence against women can stop being normalised.

Guys who try to use the “Are you on your period?” as way to end an argument always amuse me. Because it gives me the excuse to lean in close and whisper.

“I started my day by waking up in a pool of my own blood. Is that how you’d like me to end yours?”

omfg this is great

New favorite comeback.

Happy National Poetry Month! This comic was inspired by one of my favorite poems, "The New Poetry Handbook" by Mark Strand. This month on Incidental Comics, I’ll be exploring the world of poetry. A place, as Marianne Moore famously said, of  ”imaginary gardens with real toads in them.”
