My balls are pretty big. There’s a confidence that my sisters and I were raised with. After my dad died, my mom moved us from Queens back to the Dominican Republic. A very macho sort of place. But my mom raised us to know that we are equal to anyone. Whenever we went out, if we were meeting other people, my mom would always say, “I hope you like them.” Not “I hope they like you.” We were the most important.

Holy crap! Finally finished, and here’s the masterpost! I’ve had so much fun with all of these. It was a great exercise in character design and I really got into it (lol originally I was only going to do Hera and Zeus).  Thanks for all the lovely comments and encouragement on this project!

Now onto the next!

(also sorry because I know I’ve been spamming you with the last ones all day)

"The truth is, life is rarely exactly the way we want it to be, and other people often don’t act as we would like them to. Moment to moment, there are aspects of life that we like and others that we don’t. There are always going to be people who disagree with you, people who do things differently, and things that don’t work out."

From 1989 to 2011, Barbara Gordon was widely considered the best-written disabled character in mainstream comics.  She remains the best representation that the disabled community have ever had from DC Comics.  Her disability did not prevent her from being a hero.  She had no superpowers to fall back on, unlike characters such as Daredevil and Professor X.  As Oracle, she moved out of Batman’s shadow to become her own woman, without forgetting where she came from. She led her own team, became a member of the Justice League in her own right, and provided a unique role linking together the heroes of DC Earth.

In 2011, DC put an end to that, stripping her of her leadership role, making her younger, regressing her back into a girl dressed like Batman, and deciding that representing the disabled community simply wasn’t worth the effort.  One of the most distinct silhouettes in mainstream comics was abandoned to give her back the standard young able-bodied attractive heroine body.

I can understand that the designs for female heroes’ costumes are so bad that there’s a lot of excitement for one that’s remotely practical.

But it does sadden me a great deal to see so many people effectively applauding what is one of the biggest steps backward mainstream comics have ever seen in terms of representation and diversity.
