- Are you a sexist pig?
- Ask my wife! But seriously: I run this site for a reason. I love strong female characters in leading roles as well as their portrayal via great artists. I am a fan and friend of several cosplayers and both respect and stimulate their presence at conventions I attend. Of course I do this for a personal gain or feeling, since I do like their friendship and presence. I am a mere human and one from those heterosexual male species even, but I truly believe I am doing no harm nor have I ever been told I was doing harm. Regarding running the website, I can say it is a mix of my love for networking in the comic industry, helping out the more Indy titles comic book readers might miss out on as well as my personal preference, being that I love to read about ‘strong female characters in leading roles’ and admire the visual aspect combined with graphic designs you can only seem to find in comics (MPOV). More on this: here and here.
- But you post about cosplayers and advocate big breasts?
- I do post (amazing) pics (and much more, btw!) and talk about that. This does not mean I intend to do harm. Nor do I advocate big breasts in comics. That would be silly, really. I do advocate strong female characters in comics and would even love for them to not get put in the fridge. And like I say “we just love to watch…” which means NOT “we like to belittle them, scold them, badmouth or douchbag-y all over them”… Perhaps you can find an article on C4S which sounds demeaning when taken out of context, but personally ‘respect’ and ‘fun’ make for 95% of all the reasons I put so much free time in this endeavour.
