I would like to hang out with the staff hahah they seem fun
Same. I for real have the hugest crush on Ryan Matthew. My friend said that when she was there no one from the show was in the shop which kind of stinks.
I WANNA GO TO OBSCURA IF IT’S THE ONE IN NY WITH THE REALITY SHOW
YES, THAT’S THE ONE! I’m seriously so jealous she got to go but am supremely delighted with little Seb. I’ll have to take a picture once I have him nestled in with the rest of my (small) collection.
So Erica want to Obscura and brought me back some snake wine! I’m pretty in love with it and have decided to call him Sebastian.
We [Fraction and his wife, Kelly Sue DeConnick] were pregnant at the time, and while I was out there I started to realize that if I had a daughter, there would come a day when I would have to apologize to her for my profession. I would have to apologize for the way it treats and speaks to women readers, and the way it treats its female characters.
I knew that if we had a daughter, because I know my wife and I know the kind of girl she wants to raise and I know the kind of girl I want to raise, she was going to look at what I did for a living and want to know how the fuck I could stomach it. How could I sell her out like that?” Fraction continued. “That conversation is still coming, and I’m bracing for it in the way that some dads brace for their daughter’s first date or boyfriend. I became acutely aware that I had sort of done that thing that lots of privileged hetero cisgendered white dudes do. ‘I’m cool with women, and that’s enough.’ It’s not enough. It’s embarrassing to say, because we somehow have attached shame to learning and evolving our opinions, culturally, but I became aware that there was a deficiency of and to women in my work, and all I could do at that moment was take care of my side of the street."
I’m a mean person who no one likes because I wouldn’t go with my 25 year old sister to get ice cream. Like, this is a real thing that I legit just got yelled at and berated over. Okay.
