It's like the artist who did the original Mega Man US box art hired Napoleon Dynamite to pose for him.

Jebus, that's got to be the derpiest Wolverine ever. And someone at Marvel payed for that shiat?


Well, it's obvious someone hasn't paid for spelling lessons.

KatjaMouse: Well I'm checking back into this thread. It's one of those reminders that takes me back to when my girlfriends and I would attempt to have our Women's (Comic) Book Club and be met with some of the worst misogyny in the stores we'd go to. I can tell you guys honestly, there's hardly any group around (well, in the West anyway) that has more card carrying members of the He-Man's Woman Haters Club than comic book/gamer nerds.

I was one of the first to drop the group because it was frankly unbearable. It's like nerds are allergic to money from women or something.


Your women's group had misogynists? I blame the women.

Your women's group was treated bad by the guys irl? I call bullshiat.
 
2013-01-11 02:48:03 AM
And your women's group's only way to avoid the meanies was to quit your group as opposed to meeting away from the men?

Someone's story doesn't add up.

Cromar: Alright, alright, making fun of Rob is timeless, but let's turn it around: what are some of the best artists out there right now?


I really enjoy Esad Ribic. He's currently drawing Thor, God of Thunder. His covers are especially gorgeous.

You do read too many fantasies. No, that's not what it would take. It would take people like you admitting that yeah, I don't like these symptoms in my art and I'd like to see something different. If they had overtly racist things in there would you make the same argument you are making now that it is "just fantasy?"

So what do you expect these artists to do? Go to art school? Maybe learn the basics of perspective? Learn a little human anatomy? Maybe get some practice applying perspective to the drawing of human anatomy? Maybe have to prove they're competent at drawing humans using perspective before they're hired as comic book artists? Maybe the decision that they be hired and allowed to continue to draw for years solely based on their talent?

Now who's being naive, Kay.

Looking for bad comic book art is pretty easy: pick up almost any book on the shelves now. Even the "good" artists like Jim Lee are "good" because they have a basic understanding of anatomy.

/looking for a poorly-written comic is easy, too

If the store owners were in it was usually pretty good because, hey, they knew that there were nerds with vaginas in the world. It was when the stores were being run by their angry, virgin peons that things got sh*tty or some rude customer would harass us.

I would say that this experience is something I've witnessed at the local comic shop. The owner is a reasonably smart guy (a little too willing to forgive comics in general), with a wife and family. When he is there, women are pretty welcome. But when one of the other folks, the kids with no social skills who think all women should look and act like Lady Death, women get frozen out. It's pretty ridiculous, because it is a living "sharp knees" meme. The woman will walk in, pick up a few comics, and the guy at the register will not even look at her, or openly scoff at what she's picked. Then she will leave, and the comments begin: did you see that pimple on her forehead? What about the huge ass?

Keep in mind that most of these females would be considered average to hot, while most of these guys have ... poor hygiene, at the least. Let's just say I hate going there in the hottest days of summer because of the BO that hangs in the air.

On the other hand, when the owner is there, the folks suddenly get respectful. I saw at a Magic tournament, one of the younger kids brought his grandma with him. The owner said there was a couch at the front of the store if she wanted to wait there. She pulled out a deck and told him she was playing, too. And she did. It was pretty cool.

Racial attacks and insults are a lot different from making women impossibly pretty with huge tits or bulking up men in tiny green speedos. You also need to deliberately make racist attacks and insults with intent to harm and antagonize people you don't like. For example, you draw a black person resembling a deformed chimpanzee because you hate black people; you draw an ultra-perfect woman because you find it attractive. Which of those will cause more anger and backlash?

There isn't a huge difference here. You're just making the emotion more 'innocent' by giving it a positive connotation. What if it were a racist stereotype saying all Asian people are whiz-kids. It's a good thing to be smart. It's a reflection of something wrong with culture,however, that you would see no problem perpetuating in your chosen art.

Then address it at the source: the society. Don't demonize fictional characters because they happen to resemble some archaic characature or because they're more attractive than a real person. And personally, I just don't see why I should get up in arms over fictional mutant women with super powers looking like Greek goddesses, or one character who happens to be a minority being shown as super-intelligent, because they hurt nobody except those who seem to be looking for a reason to be angry at something.

Monkey-fied blacks and goblin-nosed Jews, I'll roll my eyes at and wish a painful death on whoever made it or thinks the same way, because that's contemptible any way you look at it.

You are a part of society and a part of perpetuating it so I am taking it to it's source. Society isn't one monolithic thing, it's a an amalgamation of pieces, of which this is a part of it. I'm not demonizing the characters. I'm criticizing the people who continue to perpetuate those standards and see nothing wrong with them.

Honestly you sound as bad as the nerds you describe right now. I wonder whether the issues you had didn't stem from both sides to at least some extent.

Also some nerds are just mean to the less nerdy (probably because of all the shiat the rest of society gives them) so maybe it had little to do with sex at all.

How do I sound just as bad? We'd come in, take a free table and try to discuss what we'd been reading and then decide on the next meeting topic. There was one time I came up to the register with some cowboy comic and an Umbrella Academy and he would insist I would get no satisfaction out of them and try reading a girl comic instead. Over a few weeks a few customers kept coming up to our table and continually kept trying to hit on a couple friends over and over until we all just decided to leave out right as the shift manager wasn't doing anything about it. The only way the group was able to survive was to change meeting times so that we'd be in when the owner was working. Despite that change I still dropped because I thought it was already getting too toxic.

Happens all the time. It's an unfortunate problem with the comic/gamer nerd demographic. Mainstream society's mechanisms for identifying and pressuring creepers and jerks generate too many false positives: something we sought to correct, in the name of including people who society had mistakenly excluded. But our own mechanisms generate too many false negatives, leading us to tolerate the intolerable far too often and include people who truly should be excluded.

I would love to see animated short stories with all of these characters.
They could all work in an office cubicle farm or something. The story wouldn't really matter.
It would mostly just be all these deformed characters trying to interact with their environment.
Like some of these women attempting to sit in a chair and snapping in half at the waist.
Some of the guys with the giant chests would have to drag around one of those oxygen tanks filled with albuterol so they can breathe normal. Etc.

Fano: Mike Chewbacca: Keizer_Ghidorah: Teufelaffe: Keizer_Ghidorah: maverickzy: You're right, the comics industry does not have a problem with the portrayal of female heroes.

And that has shiat to do with what we're discussing here. Stay on topic and leave the fallacies at home.

But since you touched on it, they're fictional characters who bear no resemblance to real women, so let's not get all women's lib over ink and paint.

"It's fiction so it doesn't matter" is the biggest cop-out ever.

"The portrayal of fictional women tells men to treat real women as objects" is the same stupidity as "Video games cause children to shoot up schools".

Actually, women are objectified in real life, and that's why they're objectified in our art. Humans are violent in real life, and that's why we have violent video games.

But women (and men) ARE objects.

I guess what I don't buy is your argument that woman-hating is so mainstream in comic nerddom that they seemingly harassed you at every turn.

This followed by what is obviously a big chip on your shoulder against all the nerdy guys you want respect from and it seems like things went both ways.

I could be wrong. But I see a double standard in these discussions. Look at whizbang's comment: the women in the anwcdote are all attractive above average people while those filthy nerd guys are just scum.

It is statistically ridiculous to believe such things are the norm like that. When women say all or most of the guys in group A are bad all I can do is roll my eyes. Stereotyping is stereotyping.

When I go to Con's things are somewhat egalitarian and stats definitely equal out. However there is a huge amount of abuse and harassment targeted towards women on local levels where they're still minorities. You're not as sensitive to it as someone who would be part of a targeted group (in this case, women) but it's definitely a problem. Here's an article that points out some of the issues but yeah, it's a genuinely touchy subject for a lot of women who are in these communities.

Sure it is, it's just not as widespread as people are trying to make it out to be. The problem is the "Gatekeeper" mentality adopted by people, especially if the person is a very notable member of the community. Great read on this Link

There's a similar debate going on regarding sexism and harassment at science/atheist conferences that's equally as silly. A small group of people are crying foul at the top of their lungs and it's drowning out the rest of the group(male and female) who don't see a problem.

Maybe I am sexist then I find the fake geek and fake nerd stuff to be more attention whoring than anything else.

Which obviously doesn't mean all nerd girls have to be ugly or else they are fake. But it gets to a point where a model in mens health called herself a total geek for playing angry nerds. Wtf is that?!

I remember seeing that pic of Arnold in a book shop as a little kid and ran to get my older brother to show it to him. I thought that with the way his relatively flat stomach comes up and then just sort of juts out square like that at the chest, I thought he looked like Optimus Prime. :)

Either way, in Arnold's case, both arms are in the picture, so the flexing explains the angle of the chest. Not in the case of the Cap panel. That's just freaky.

I'm sorry that I don't find making fictional people super-sexy something to be outraged over. I just can't get worked up enough to look at Power Girl and scream "HOW DARE THEY MAKE THIS INK-AND-PAINT WOMAN WITH INCREDIBLE SUPERPOWERS NOT LOOK LIKE YOUR AVERAGE WOMAN IN EVERYDAY LIFE!!", or entertain some conspiracy theory about ten-year-olds seeing Power Girl and somehow turning into woman-hating misogynists.

As I stated upthread, it's simply something I don't like. It's not any more concerning to me than Brussels sprouts or Taylor Swift. And the thing is, it's not the amount of skin or T&A that they show that I don't like. It's the absolutely idiotic poses they put them in so that they have an excuse to try and get as many jiggly-bits into frame as possible. Most of them just cry out, "OMG BOOBS AND BUTTS R KEWL" and it's distracting from the action, the story, the characters, and even the "fan service", since someone who looks like they should be dead from severe spinal injuries due to the position their body is in just isn't attractive (I'm shallow that way).

Nice try at dodging the question though. Why do you care so much about attention whores?

Teufelaffe: Smackledorfer: Teufelaffe: Smackledorfer: PanicMan: Smackledorfer: I guess what I don't buy is your argument that woman-hating is so mainstream in comic nerddom that they seemingly harassed you at every turn.

It's been a major topic of discussion on the internet lately, examples are everywhere. Look up "booth babe" and "fake nerd girl" and "sexism in comics". Just because you haven't seen it or don't believe it, doesn't mean it's not a problem.

Maybe I am sexist then I find the fake geek and fake nerd stuff to be more attention whoring than anything else.

Which obviously doesn't mean all nerd girls have to be ugly or else they are fake. But it gets to a point where a model in mens health called herself a total geek for playing angry nerds. Wtf is that?!
:)

Why do you care? Whether someone is an attention whore or actually geeky, it has pretty much zero impact on your life, so why care?

This from the guy with so much concern over tits and ass in drawings...

As I stated upthread, it's simply something I don't like. It's not any more concerning to me than Brussels sprouts or Taylor Swift. And the thing is, it's not the amount of skin or T&A that they show that I don't like. It's the absolutely idiotic poses they put them in so that they have an excuse to try and get as many jiggly-bits into frame as possible. Most of them just cry out, "OMG BOOBS AND BUTTS R KEWL" and it's distracting from the action, the story, the characters, and even the "fan service", since someone who looks like they should be dead from severe spinal injuries due to the position their body is in just isn't attractive (I'm shallow that way).

Where did I say I cared "so much"?
You are trying to make a mountain out of a molehill here.

All I said was I found to be attention whoring.

Is there a specific thing I said that is giving you trouble, or are you just stirring up any shiat you think you see at this point?

Maybe my tongue-in-cheek meter is broken, but it seemed like it was an issue for you. If you weren't treating it as srs bzns, I apologize.

I have to ask. Was this a typo or was she really playing "Angry Nerds"?

I though it was Teufelaffe and Smackledorfer playing that.
