It’s been quite a week for me personally. It’s been busy in real life, and I haven’t felt 100%. It’s Friday and I’m feeling just the tiniest bit better so I thought I would hop on here and write a My Current Favorite Things post! MCFT posts are usually 4 or 5 things that I’m loving currently! Here’s 5 things I am loving right now!
We’re 13 days away from one of my favorite holidays: Christmas! This time last year, I made every 5FF post holiday themed. This year has just not worked out that way, but I will be better prepared next year! Let’s just focus on a few of my favorite things this week… MCFT posts are usually 4 or 5 things that I’m loving currently! Here’s 4 things I am loving right now!
No Such Thing as Nothing prints
I spotted these prints in a room online and wouldn’t you know that the original poster said where they got ’em?! They are gorgeous and the artist has many other prints that are just as cool. You can grab this one right here.
Sorry it’s been so quiet around here! The wedding wore me out, work has been crazy busy, and now the holidays are right around the corner. Can time slow down please? Anyway, I thought I’d tell all of you some of my favorite things this week that have been occupying my time. MCFT posts are usually 4 or 5 things that I’m loving this week! Here’s 4 things I am loving right now!
Spyro Reignited Trilogy
If you haven’t read my post that is part of The Games That Define Us, you totally should. And of course read the others that are up so far! There’s some really amazing posts this month and I can’t wait to read the rest. Back to Spyro Reignited Trilogy… My wonderful husband knew how much I wanted the new remastered Spyro trilogy, so, of course, he bought it and installed it as soon as he could and I beat the first game in 6 hours. Be on the look out for a Saturday Suggestion featuring the remastered favorite game of my childhood.
Right about now, I’m halfway to my hometown in Alabama for our wedding! I promised my readers I’d still release some content during our time away. I realize I haven’t written a My Current Favorite Things post since May! MCFT posts are usually 4 or 5 things that I’m loving this week! Since our wedding is literally 3 days away at this point, I thought I’d do a quick “favorites” post. Here’s 4 things I am loving right now!
“Is it really so difficult to come up with the idea of a superhero who is wholly unique and just happens to have boobs—God knows, illustrators aren’t shy when it comes to those, but more on that later—and you know what else? What makes it hard? The misconception that pretty much all comic book readers are male?”
In a world where 48% of women in the US play video games and 46.67% of women in the US make up comic book fans, you’d think companies would get the message by now. Women can be geeks. Women can love playing video games and reading comic books. Women are a part of their audience, and we need these companies to start paying attention.
We want unique and individual comic book characters! We want characters of all shapes and sizes to be represented! We want LGBTQ characters who are strong and can kick ass! We have some comics who have heard our cries and stepped up to the plate like Faith, Iceman, and My Brother’s Husband. We want stand-alone female super heroes!
Can Marvel and DC hear us when they put out super heroes like Spider-Woman or She-Hulk or Lady Punisher: female superheroes who carry their male counterpart’s namesake? The ones who needed to be saved by that hero, who had a romance with the hero that they took their name from? Can these superheroes not stand by themselves without these already famous male names and a similar backstory? They can and they should.
I was recently contacted by Rika at Discover Geek who has done several interviews and reviews for the site. She wrote an incredible article on female superheroes who are famously linked to their male counterparts, romantic or otherwise. She created this awesome info graphic that perfectly illustrates her point that we need female superheroes who stand alone without a famous male namesake.
So many female superheroes can hold their own against villains and can still have a unique backstory without bearing an already famous male superhero name. Let’s get off this namesake train and give these superheroes the story they deserve!
What female superheroes do you love? Do they take their name from a more famous male superhero? What comics would you recommend to your girlfriends who need a female heroine in their life right now?
