It’s difficult enough to find a game where a woman is the main character. Finding one where you play as a woman and have positive, meaningful interactions with other women? It’s like spotting a goddamn unicorn.
As Ellie, I got to do all the things I wanted to do growing up: play videogames, read comics, have water gun fights. But somehow – somehow! – Ellie got to do the “girl stuff” too: have a female best friend, tell her secrets, hang out at the mall and take silly pictures together in a photobooth.
Instead of this making her weak and foolish, as the mystical scrolls of gender norms had foretold, Ellie became a warrior. She was still a girl, but one capable of creeping up behind a grown man trying to kill her and shivving him in the neck. She got to be both vulnerable and dangerous, scared and brave, weak and strong. She got to be human.
Left Behind affected me, profoundly, not just by letting me be a girl, but by finally letting me be a human too.
I’m looking for art/comics/etc for a monster girl zine I’m planning! Everything goes as long as it’s monster girls.
How I’ll Work As Of Now:
- Send your submission or rough concept of a work you’d like to submit to: firstname.lastname@example.org !!! Email questions here also!! :3
- Me, and a group of other artists will look over your submissions and email you back if it’s something we’d be able to use. If you don’t get in don’t distress! You are more then welcome to submit more then 1 piece or rework a already submitted piece.
It doesn’t have to be brand new art.
ALL SORTS OF STYLES/VISUAL STORIES WELCOME! Super cute to realism. Any and everything!
my boyfriend and i got into a heated argument because he says that he would never date a black girl and i called him racist. he insisted it is not racist, that its simply preference. its been like a month and it still kind of bothers me. i want to say something because he always says it when i talk about any black woman, it gets tiring and its almost like he is trying to get it across to me for some strange reason. what do you think, ten?
