My name is My and I make comix. This is where I track my progress.
I'm a 25 y/o, white, queer cis woman, I'm a huge Discworld fan, in the second year of Serieskolan in Malmo and, although I care very much about politics, I try to keep them off my blog as much as possible. If you'd like me to tag anything, just give me a shout! I care a lot about that stuff.
You can check out some more of my art here or stop by my website.

Oddly, that was the first one that came to mind to me! My local shops usually don’t take in a lot of good “graphic novels” so I manage to avoid quite a lot of things I like :/So I take it it’s good?

Birthday!

I’ve had such a nice birthday so far! My girlfriend made me breakfast in bed and we cut each other’s hair (courtesy of Therese and Charlotta's electric shaver), rewatched Brooklyn Nine-Nine and now we're working together in the studio! I got a gift card for a comic shop so if anyone has any tips, let me know!

Ok….soo..I was really into drawing expressive faces today so I used some of my friends webcomic characters as models/victims. You can find the characters in a better representation and their original creators below.

Sorry…it’s a phase…

This is, without a doubt, the single most flattering thing ever.

runnereight said: no more queer erasure, let's make everyone queer. everyone in monstrous regiment is super queer. also the witches, everyone in the watch books, probably moist and adora, etc etc every single fandom fave. very queer. do people not know this! how embarrassing right :O haha

Just as I am shocked and bemused to find straight people among my circle of friends, so too am I unable to picture cishet faves. Are they real? What do people see in them? Can we ever have a true connection? Is it possible to convincingly portray cishets in a Renaissance-Victorian-inspired fantasy setting?
Who are they? How can I understand them?

sixteentons said: Tonker and Lofty are straightwashed? I didn't know that! In what way?

fullmetalsayaka:

I’ve seen several comments about how great their “”“friendship”“” is, and I know for a while there the discworld wiki said that they had “a very close friendship” due to the fact that they lived in the workhouse together

also a person I followed several years back made a post which basically said that Tonker and Lofty weren’t really queer because of Lofty’s #rape and the abuse they both suffered, because if they’d met under other circumstances they wouldn’t be a couple, and I really don’t think I could explain how massively fucked up that is on basically every level imaginable even if I had a thousand years to do it

How completely unoriginal! Interpreting women’s relationships as non-sexual and non-romantic by default AND men’s dicks having the power to change a woman’s sexual and or romantic orientation. My two least favourite tired queer-lady-relationships tropes after “a good queer is a dead queer” - step up your game, world!
Btw posting this was fine, it’s an important discussion. I get so angry about people refusing to accept queer characters for what they are. It was so fucking clear!

Me and Joamette Gil are making a comic together, which is possibly the most exciting thing that could happen! Here is my first take on Stargaze, one of the heroines.

I’d like to punch everyone complaining about lack of representation in speculative fiction with a Discworld book.

me: *throws the entire Discworld series at them*

OK, Discworld is good but I feel like people are still allowed to complain that things being as good as Discworld are rare?

ONE FUCKING SERIES, SERIOUSLY

Yeah also, I love Discworld and all, but minorities are still minorities there. You don’t have tons of lesbians or trans people or people with disabilities and so forth there, you have some sometimes. (Also there’s a particular kind of sexism and ableism there.)

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

"Stop complaining about the lack of good representation because there’s one series written by a man that represents white women better than most other popular fantasy."

Yeah, okay.

^exactly

OP, i get where you are coming from, but some version of this joke can be found in the discworld tag like every two weeks like clockwork with little to no attempt to talk about things such as: susan’s characterisation suffering from ‘i’m not like other girls’ mentality, exploring how klatchians are treated in ankh morpork mysteriously evaporates after jingo, none of the women in interesting times are given any depth outside of tired oriental stereotypes, the majority of queer discworld characters/relationships are blink-and-miss-it, etc etc etc. and on top of that, there’s the amount of praise you kind find in the tag with regard to the goblin subplot in snuff and raising steam when that is exactly the kind of fantastic racism allegory that allows writers to tackle oppression and privilege without actually involving oppressed peoples who do experience such oppression in real life.

funny how people lose their sense of humour when this keeps happening over and over.

More good points

ONE FUCKING SERIES, SERIOUSLY

wait a second I have an actual question here

I have only read one DiscWorld book so far (the colour of magic), and it’s been one of the worse book I ever read representation-wise.

I mean there’s two women in the whole book, and one of them gets a long description of how hot and half naked she is (also her main goal is to get a husband). Other than that, I’m pretty sure everyone who’s human is also either white and straight, or unspecified (except that one hydrophobe who’s black, but ‘the actual colour black’, not the way black people are black).

Am I missing something here? If I go on reading DiscWorld books, will I realise this one was a sad, sad exception?

Putting aside the fact that most fans recommend new readers to skip at least the first five books for a good reason, I think it’s completely unfair to say that Discworld does a good job with POC and queer representation. 
A lot of cool people have written about the lack of canon POC characters, the problems that arise when canon POC characters do appear and how the white saviour trope appears pretty strong in the last books so I won’t go into that.
As far as I know there are two canon non-hetero characters in the books, who date each other and can be interpreted as “very close friends” by even more people than what usually happens. Even if someone else can remember a couple more, there’s no getting around the fact that they are few and far between.
There are trans characters who are treated in-universe with a lot of care and understanding, at least to my interpretation, and then again there are characters the fandom agrees pretty uniformly to interpret as trans that are not respected as such in the text.
His female characters are incredible, varied and largely trope-free and I think Terry’s got as good a grasp on patriarchal issues as any man could be expected to have, but these women are not explicitly WOC often enough and both official and fandom art almost always portray them as white.

So this is coming from a complete die hard fan of the series: you cannot uphold it as a beacon of hope for good representation in SF.

Terry Pratchett is an old, to my knowledge straight, white English man. He is an incredible writer who’s thoughts on the human condition moves me deeply no matter how many times I’ve already read them and he has a very deep and respectful insight in a lot of different types of oppression and unfairness.
He is also very flawed. We’re right to want better.
