This blog is from a women in comics whom I liked very much in the short time I knew her… do wonder about this a lot. Every interview I do with the mainstream press, seemingly, and I turn down a LOT, they seem to want to hear how awfully I’ve been treated by comics and by the men IN comics.
And I haven’t. It’s been quite the reverse. My experiences with comics have been nearly 100% positive, and the few that weren’t, for the most part, had little to do with gender. I know what they want to hear and I just want to tell them to fuck off. I know if I say, well, this editor stuck up for me or this creator was incredible to me, that stuff will never make the article anyway.
But I’ve had enough friends have the opposite experience that I know my own is just a fortunate roll of the dice. But joining a blanket condemnation when these guys have been so unbelievably supportive feels like I’d be a cad.
Anyway, I feel a lot of sadness for this blogger and hope things are brighter for her soon.
