Anonymous asked: i guess you're back to answering questions
i’m not entirely sure what the asker meant by this, buuuuut i will twist it to use as a platform for a little psa: i have been getting a poo load of questions lately, and i can’t possibly answer them all!!! i did make a faq for frequently asked questions, but you guys are all such special snowflakes i don’t really get the same questions twice. so if you send me a non-anon qq, i will answer it privately as promptly as is possible. however anon messages will probably take longer to get answered, and will most likely be attended to as they are relevant. however if you send something really really sweet i will probably never answer it because i don’t like sharing my nice things other people tend to break them. so i keep them to look at when i’m feeling down.

Anonymous asked: im wondering if that chloroform was a reference to a rape joke. i love your art but that one made me uneasy :/
oooh gosh i never looked at it that way. i was more picturing me chloroforming a boy and then dragging him on cheesy dates with me but i suppose that’s still ridiculously lacking in consent and um grody and a ‘mens rights activist’ would likely have a field day with it. (also originally i had written down ‘misandrist’ and i realized that that didn’t work in that sentence but also that my spellcheck doesn’t recognize it and how cool is that?? good on you apple) anyways, i took the doodle down.
Anonymous asked: just fyi white dreads are a form of cultural appropriation
don’t worry i gotcha i would never personally get dreads. however i would read an article online about a woman who had dreads who was not white and how people treated her due to her hair. it was a really good story i recommend you read it on rookie it’s faboo.
Anonymous asked: props to you for representing all differents kinds of women in your art
i don’t know if this is also the anon who liked that i included POC in my art, but since they are in the same sort of vein of common misrepresentation to complete lack of, i’ll respond to both here!! this might be rambl-y and not cohesive but bear with me? each of these comments made me smile, but they also unnerve me. don’t worry this isn’t a diss on the asker! i love love adore that you are aware of the media that you consume, and notice when people are and are not included. but i hate that doing something that should be the standard needs to be pointed out and congratulated. i try to represent all girls in my comics, and unfortunately that sets me apart from other blogs, tv shows, magazines, ect ect ect. so thank you so much for noticing, because that always feels good, but instead of pointing out what i’m doing right, tell me when i’m getting it wrong. when you don’t feel represented, or i’m posting pages and pages of skinny white girls. or if you have a trigger i didn’t tag. if i say something that could be interpreted as racist sexist ableist or transphobic call me da fuck out babes. i’m soaked in privilege and i don’t deserve a gold star for being a decent human being. (even though i love gold stars i’ll admit)
Anonymous asked: Do you read or know of Rookie mag?
yes! they are my go-to for d.i.y. headbands and articles about dreadlocks!! which are the only things in my life that matter. my teenage brain revolves around hair. my teenage brain is hair.
