I draw the webcomic Manly Guys Doing Manly Things and work on cartoons you might see on TV sometimes.
everything’s so funny when u use the wrong measurement:
- 5 gallons of homework
- mouthful of lint
- 20 degrees of facial oil
- 7 pints of china
- handful of fergi
- 60 mph of dad
I was trying to describe how small my friend’s driveway was and the words were not coming to me and I sincerely called it “45 cents wide”
Brett: Cute John B
Brett: The "B" is for "Belzy"
Brett: His first name is John.
Blackface is awful and there is no doubt about that, and it’s wonderful that people are becoming conscientious enough of the problem to call out people who think it’s appropriate in costumes, but please think twice before you jump on board with this whole “shoot first ask questions later” approach to anyone suspected of bronzing their skin in any way for cosplay purposes. I am seeing it lead to a lot of Latino, Native, and Middle Eastern folks getting bullied and harassed for cosplaying characters with their own skin tone by internet strangers accusing them of being white people in make up and that is disgusssssttttiiiiiinnnnggggg. It’s fostering an atmosphere where people are afraid to dress up like characters who actually look like them because someone on the internet will see and raise wild, insulting accusations that they’ll never be able to respond to due to the rumour mill game of telephone set up of sites like tumblr and twitter.
Especially with all the awesome Dragon Con photos that are gonna be circulating in the next few days, please just be conscious of other people, don’t automatically assume the worst as a knee-jerk reaction and start posting without looking into the matter further, and if you really, strongly suspect foul play please take it up with the cosplayer in private before you make a public spectacle throwing accusations you can never take back. (Also be aware that there’s really no polite way to accuse someone of being a white person in brownface so don’t take it too personally if they’re insulted you asked. It’s still better than making a scene in public only to find out you were harassing someone for no reason)
Amazed by the number of people who think my webcomic is called “Manly Men Doing Manly Things” and stars a character named Captain Badass.
why did you make apollo asian? the games take place in LA.
I do not mean to alarm you sir but Los Angeles happens to be home to many individuals of East Asian heritage.
Is it officially set in L.A. or has our ignorant friend here fallen prey to localization shenanigans? Because I always thought the games were set in Tokyo.
The games are so obviously set in Tokyo that the I-don’t-think-you-even-tried-at-all job the localizers did of setting them in Los Angeles is a running joke.
