Dear Aaron Diaz,
Over the past few days we’ve already exchanged some words about this. I reblogged Mary’s comic lampooning your comic (and others like it), expressing my approval of its message. I also subtweeted your work fairly obviously. We are…
Dresden Codak was one of my favorite web comics and I had to give it up because Kimiko getting limbs sexily blown off and talking about science while stripping was upsetting to me. I wish there was a heavily edited version.
I’m constantly worried about my own characters. Nobody look at Runi from Wesslingsaung through a feminist lens, please. I’ll never stop apologizing. Last night I asked my sibling if a character I wrote in a novel is too ditzy. They haven’t made it far enough to tell. I trust them implicitly, because they study gender in college, but I realize now (late in the game) that even trusting “experts” is inherently a sexist act because it is foisting responsibility. It is the job of all authors, male, female, or other, to be constantly worried about how their characters are being construed or can be misconstrued.
