On leaving The Border House

December 18, 2009

Today was my last post on The Border House, for those of you who have read my few posts over there.  I know it’s a sudden departure, but I think it’s for the best for both The Border House and for myself.

I want to take the time to thank Cuppycake, Alex, Brinstar, and the rest of the staff for taking me on the site and explaining feminist ideals to me.  They’ve been really good and nice in dealing with my non-existent knowledge on the feminist perspective, and I’ve learned a lot from my short time on the site.  It’s really important that we have a site that looks at things from another perspective different from our own, and I wish them all the best of luck with the blog.  It has the potential to do a lot of good for many people.

I don’t want to dwell on my reasons for leaving.  To put it simply: I’m just not a feminist.  I’m a female transgendered person who identifies with pretty much everyone out there in one way or another, but I’m just not a feminist.

But, as I want to reiterate, I’m very thankful for the time I got to write there, I’m thankful for what I’ve learned and read, and I hope they continue to kick ass and do good.



I’mma gonna be in a webcomic

July 9, 2009

Madeleine & SeraSo, my good friend Maddy Reinberg sent this picture over to me today.  It’s a test drawing for her new webcomic, Not Safe For Work.  I’m going to be one of those recurring main characters — the gamer who just seems to game wayy too much.

Yeah, you see those drum sticks?  Rock Band drum sticks.  Maddy wants me to be in every strip with either drum sticks or a Rock Band Stratocaster controller.  My outfit is going to change each strip though, so at least I won’t be in the suit all of the time. 😀

And yes, I kinda remind myself of Michael Jackson in this drawing.  Now only if I could bring down Twitter upon my death…

Also, to the left is the comic’s author, Maddy.  The comic is going to center around her friends being… well.. us.  Most of the strip is actually based on goofy things that we say or do.  (Trust me, we do a lot of that.)  It involves work, gaming, relationships… and more of that standard webcomic goodness.

This is only a preview though, as the site just isn’t done yet.  When its up though, I’ll let you guys know.  Consider this a preview of things to come!
