(fyi the gf question wasn't about the fact that the person was a girl it was just that there was a person u were in a relationship w/) (also i 100% agree with honey booboo. I like to counteract heteronormativity by assuming everyone I meet is queer) (good night and sweet dreams)
How do you talk to your parents about the celebrity hacking in a way that doesn't make it obvious that you have sent naked photos over the internet before?
I’d say use a metaphor that isn’t the internet — put the focus on the hacker and how he committed a crime because he felt entitled to women’s bodies. Now take that into the physical world:
For example, some of these women have posed for provocative photo shoots before or done nude scenes in movies, so what is specifically titillating about these pictures? The non-consent. The idea that they were private and stolen and that the women DID not want them seen. They chose (as is their right) who to send them to. They did not consent to everyone seeing them. If someone has sex once, do they consent to have sex with anyone who ever asks for the rest of time?
Tell them the idea that men are thrilled by taking away the agency of these women and that they feel they are “owed” sex and women’s sexuality is a gateway to rape and at the very least a great example of rape culture. Maybe parents have a hard time understanding internet stuff, so try to show how it manifests in the world around us.
You're just genuinely a horrible person. You promote bigotry as comedy. The idea of you penning anything to influence children is terrifying. Worst of all, it's not that you're "not fun," you're not even funny. How fortunate for you that being a woman excuses you from even needing to have talent to hide your hate behind. I hope some day you get some level of a conscience and some empathy for all the people your words hurt. Maybe that will get you to reconsider your life.
Just saw your geek girls video & it was so well done so I checked out your other works and omg I love your world views, personality, anger, and just straight up hilarious bluntness! Especially loved your piece on Not Trusting White People, Just Between Us is comedic genius, and #BisexualProblems has a great sense of lightheartedness about it! Keep doing you girl!

Fun story: a former co-worker of mine told me a story about how she was going to be on the show Comic Book Men as one of the main characters. The producers told her to come in wearing her Black Canary cosplay (as she's super into cosplay) and when she did, she was immediately heckled for being "an attention whore" despite everyone knowing she was going to be cosplaying. And then the kicker is she never made it onto the show anyway because an attractive geek girl wasn't "the reality of the show".
I was so excited to see you were back on yo is this racist. i've co-opted so many of your arguments on racism and misogyny (especially women in comedy) because you bring a clarity to pointing out bullshit that is really effective. in short, your rage is inspirational! i look forward to following your career for a long time to come.
Oh thank you! I’m glad my anger has some use because I don’t know what I’d do with it otherwise.
Thank you so much for that Fake Geek Guys video. I always knew that the majority of comic stores were fairly toxic places but I had no idea to the extent of horrible they were for women till tremendously talented ladies like you & Noelle Stevenson started talking about it. The good thing about these cowards is they're fundamentally weak people who easily topple when challenged IRL, and I'm just a pocket sized dandy fop. Rest assured, I'm going to continue to call dipshits out till the day I die.
Yo, you are hilarious on Yo Is This Racist, so I checked out the rest of your online presence. Great writing, great tweets, great videos (love Just Between Us), great Tumblr. The mix of hilarity and outrage is awesome - you seem like you'd be awesome to hang out and drink with. You're also beautiful. So, you know, keep all that shit up because it all rules. ~ A straight white dude who is just trying not to fuck shit up.
