Special Feature: The Basics of Feminism
In coordination with last week's community events and specifically my group feature on feminism, Some Community Events 7 I've decided to expand on the topic with some basic information about feminism and why we need it AND feature some awesome art in the process to get across my point!
Introduction
When I first submitted my paper: Fighting Rape Culture I was already pretty powerfully into being a feminist and I support all those things that go with it. I know how easy it is to be misinformed or dismissive of Feminism so I would like to shed some light on what it's all about!
So what is feminism?


Yep. That's it. If you think it means anything else, then you probably aren't looking in the right places. And you probably are one if you agree with this statement, you just don't realize it because feminism has such a bad rap and we'll

Trans History pg6 (finale)
Woof this page took me aaaaaaaall day!
I love getting to draw a bunch of people at the same time, seems like there's typically at least one page in most of my comics that feature a bunch of different people all hanging out.

But it sure does take a while! Thank you for reading!

Trans History pg 5
This is my most "controversial" page in the series.

I think the most heart breaking comments I've seen thus far are from other Trans people in the throws of depression and dysphoria. I've been there. Sometimes it's hard to think of being Transgender as anything but a curse. But it's not.

Being Transgender automatically imparts an incredibly unique perspective to life. This is why some cultures worshipped and revered Trans people.
I'm not arguing that we're better than other people - although many are choosing to see it that way - but I am firm believer that us Trans people have to take control over our own narratives. We must show pride in the face of resentment. We must celebrate our lives, not bemoan them.

If that's a controversial statement then move along or find help, I guess.

Trans History pg4
Remember my dear Trans friends, that while there are certainly many examples of Trans people who made big waves in our society. There are also plenty who are just normal, everyday folk.

How they lived their lives, and how you live yours, are a testament to the fact that it is totally normal to be Transgender, even if our lived experiences proves otherwise.

You matter, and histo

Trans History pg3
This page took me a loooong time. I was really torn about how many people to depict, and who.
There are dozens of different folk to choose from across time, and across cultures too.

Ultimately I chose to "scratch the surface" so that folks might be inspired to learn more on their own.

This page is the 2nd most trolled page of the series. What can I say? People love to pitch a fit over subjects that don't completely understand.
I can't say I blame them since I used to be like that my own self! ^_^

Pulp Fiction was my favorite movie. Okay maybe not my number one, after all Monty Python and the Holy Grail? That's unfair.
But Pulp Fiction was hands down one of my favorite movies of all time.

I saw it when I was maybe 13 and it rocked my socks, everything about it was cool, funny, brutal, sexy... It was a perfect movie and I would relish the opportunity to introduce it to my friends. I must have watched it 30 times between 13 and 18.

In college a professor even broke it down in my History of Film course - citing Pulp Fiction as a prime example of post modernism (which it is.)

Fast forward (or rewind, really) to life after college. I had received my BFA sure but it was my minor in Black Studies that had transformed my consciousness from being "neutral" to "political."

I hadn't seen Pulp Fiction in some time so I watched it all by myself. And it was as great as I remembered, totally flawless, until...
...until Quentin decided that the best person to play "Jimmie Dimmick" would be himself.

When Vincent and Jules get a thorough tongue lashing from Jimmie for showing up with a dead body it's a glorious moment in the film where everything comes to a screeching halt only to go right back into 5th gear again. It's awesome, and Jimmie has one of the best monologues in the movie. Except...

...except it's fucking Quentin Tarantino! His performance is awkward and clumsy at best, and at worst?
At worst I think he just wanted to say the N word as many times as possible and get away with it.
Frankly it felt like the part was written for a black man and Quentin just stepped in and said "No, I want this part."

NOTHING about his performance is convincing - because he's NOT an actor.
If the part was for a complete nerd (which is what Quentin is) but it wasn't.

Pulp Fiction had always been one of my favorite movies, but to be completely honest? Quentin ruined it. Completely ruined the ending for me.
And in my despair I began watching his other movies scouring them for reasons to defend his work but instead the more I watched less I liked him!

- - I will admit that I can't throw out Kill Bill 1 and 2 or Death Proof I just can't even though they are problematic - -

And then Django Unchained comes out and one of my favorite directors Spike Lee (who also shouldn't cast himself in his own fucking movies) calls it an insult and refuses to watch it.

I was curious what Quentin's thoughts were, but I never got them. I got angry rants and tantrums like this one:



And they weren't the words of a calm collected person trying to make a statement about our values or the way we tell history, or even just the fun of reversing the roles of the victimized Black man... It was his screaming "I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT SO THERE."

There are too many angry nerds.  I know it seemed cool in the 2000s?  But nerds losing their shit is tired, tasteless, and often offensive.

I don't know how else to say it. I admit that I too have behaved like Quentin Tarantino when confronted with questions that rub me the wrong way.
I too am an egotistical prick sometimes. I'm not saying he's a bad person? or that his films are bad?

I just can't anymore. I can't do it. YOU BROKE MY HEART, QUENTIN.

I write/draw autobiographical comics. The goal is to self publish several volumes of books, ultimately working up to my graphic novel.

I've read several of your feminism comic and I wanted to say that you've made me feel better inside. Though I'm sure many men are in favor of gender equality, very few of them are brave enough to outright say they're feminists. The very word attracts hate and stupidity like to other on the internet.
You, being a man, and still taking a disinterested stand for real gender equality gives me hope for the future. Respect my friend.

Hey, thank you for this comment!  It really does me a world of good.

I have, in fact, heard from other men who really appreciated the comic and shared it among their male friends - so there's hope still!
I hope it becomes a resource for introducing people to Feminism, so feel free to share the link: www.justinhubbell.com/orcs-vs-…

I'm glad I didn't let you down! ^__^

Thank you!  Working on the revisions now - soon you'll be able to read it in book form ^_^
...but by "soon" I mean "holy crap this is going to take a while."

If you donated (any amount) on my Patreon you'll be thanked in the book!
