Brendan likes showing Sulla older movies with heroic robot characters. But sometimes he forgets.
OHS resume updates this Thursday.
So this week’s Junior Scientist Power Hour is part I of a series about a course I took in University where we got to go dig up dinosaurs in Saskatchewan! It is highly educational, go read it.
And these are all the students who took the course with me! Nine women, two gay fellows, and one gender non-specific person. Dinosaurs and the sciences as a whole are NOT GENDER SPECIFIC. And yet so often we see the sciences marketed towards boys and men!! It’s so dumb!
And of the chicks on this course, I also think it’s important to note how different we all look. There are a LOT of ways that bodies are shaped, and any group of nine women is going to have a broad range of these shapes, and all of them are hot in their own way. But in media, and especially in character design, we so often see the range of female body shapes being limited to boob size and “the one that wears glasses.”
Be a little more creative, creators. Look at the women in the world around you, instead of the very narrow perception of women the media presents you with, or the one body type you have been taught is “sexually appealing.” Women can be passionate scientists and be chubby and still be hot.
Abby’s one of the coolest peeps I finally met in person at Rose City! She drew a frog for my biology major brother. <3
Most of my Saturday was spent looking up stuff about Bina48.
BINA48 is a project of Terasem Movement, Inc™ and is designed to test whether a person’s consciousness can be downloaded into a non-biological or nanotechnological body after combining detailed data about a person through the use of future consciousness software
So lemme get this… the developer/CEO of the development company is a jewish trans lesbian woman and the highest paid female ceo in america, and this project is based on her wife, a black lesbian woman, and both are mothers with children from previous relationships who they have now each legally adopted???
this exists in the actual world and people still think sci fi can only be about straight cis vaguely-christian white men…….
okay!!!!!!!!!!!!! yes!!!!!!!! also, are they lookin for a sugar baby?
i am slain
Once again, truth outdoes fiction.
Also, read everything you can about Martine Rothblatt and Bina Aspen immediately.
Hi everyone! I returned home from Rose City Comic Con last night and I’ve got a couple things to update you on. First of all, I was shortlisted for Autostraddle’s first ever comic award, which is super cool!
Secondly, O Human Star is going to resume updates on Thursday, October 2nd. I have a few loose ends I need to tie up, such as the September Patreon sketchbook and a few super duper secret things. But October is going to be a very exciting month for OHS readers, so keep an eye out!
SPX 2014 was out of this world! I got to talk to a lot of readers, socialize with my friends (at the *.*.*SPX PROM*.*.*), and picked up some fantastic books, including work signed by Emily Carroll, Michael DeForge, Carla Speed McNeil, and Jillian Tamaki! And that really sweet Sulla drawing is by a reader named Noni! Aaah!
