1. The Hawkeye initiative (and related stuff) make me extremely uncomfortable.

    There’s some really nasty shit lurking not too far under the surface of some of the drawings.  In some cases, like the ones where they switch clothes, it’s not even too deep.

    Making choices of clothing based in femininity/femme-ness on a dood isn’t a context free choice.  Doubly so when you are mocking something.  It relies on the deep history of cissexism and oppositional sexism in our culture.  Even if that’s not the intent of the artist, it is impossible to look at these drawings and not have all the jokes about guys wearing women’s clothing or “acting like a girl” come up.  That’s the POINT of these drawings.

    And that point pins trans women to the wall as a side effect of (rightly) critiquing the sexism in comics.

      I guess as long as we’re all very aware of it then it shouldn’t be too much of a problem. Hopefully.
