*** if I need to add more tags to stuff like this just message me and I will, it’s no trouble at all***

This is the longest comic I’ve ever done and it’s a monster and it took me forever and I never want to draw again. 

Ok, that’s not true. 

I used to take a certain route fairly frequently, a couple of times a week. And there were these two guys who were almost always hanging around on the sidewalk, and they’d always talk at me:

"Hey, red!"

"Good seeing you again"

"Looking good, red!"

(I had red hair back then)

And I thought I didn’t care so much, but then I found myself altering my route, or feeling stressed, knowing I’d likely encounter them again. 

I took the same route with a guy once, and they were there, and they said nothing. But next time I was alone, it started again, and that said it all. 

Fuck those guys. It’s my sidewalk too. 

CITATIONS:

1: Amy Poehler “I don’t fucking care if you like it”

2: Quotes from sexual offenders from… (I read through this shit and it’s terrible awful terrible stuff)

 - Interview in “Rapists’ accounts of their motivations, levels of premeditation and target choices: Some Trinidadian and Tobagonian data”

 - Reddit thread, 2012

 - “Rapist files” - a book

3: Bystander Intervention

"Men are our greatest allies in ending casual sexism and harassment! We believe in you!"

Data: May I ask a personal favour?
Worf: Yes.

How many times has that nurse saved that man’s life today?
Overheard the doctors at work talking about me. Put my very busy, stressful day into perspective and makes me feel like I what I do is worth something.

ah, so true. My cackle of relief upon seeing this was probably heard by my mother 2,000 miles away.

If Asians Said the Stuff White People Say

For real. Where are you really from? I could never use chopsticks, that is so incredibly hard! Well you’re Asian so you do the math. I only date Asian girls; wait, where are you going? Ugh you have an unfair advantage, you’re so skinny because you’re Asian. What’s your real name, like, your Asian name? All things that have actually been said to me. More than once. 

I lol’d and my heart cried a little inside.

Lake Merced at night looks like The Lady of the Lake could emerge at any moment and present to me a sword.

katsplanet:

all men are responsible. all men are necessary to dismantle sexism. all men have to check their thoughts and behaviors. all men should enter male spaces and speak up for the rights of women when their peers do not. ALL men. do not give me this “not all men” bullshit because if you are silent and only care about your feelings instead of fighting for women then you /are/ one of those men. saying “not all men” lets men think that they arent involved with the issue when they are

A feminist, fake-Asian (adopted by white people) from Chicago living in SF and practicing oncology nursing while I serial monogamize my love life. That's me.
