Winter Soldier spoilers… kinda… and comicbook girly moments

With all that “Fake Geek Girl” hate and stuff out there in the world I had two special moments today. One, I am a student teacher and I am female. I had my first interaction with a student outside of the classroom when I went to  see The Winter Soldier with my boyfriend. We greeted each other briefly and went to our seats. I spoke to this student again today in some free time during class and we discussed the movie. Overall he said he liked it but was confused about who the twins were at the end of the movie. I told him that they were Magneto’s kids and he was floored. “Like as in X-men!?” apparently this 9th grade boy who was super “in to comic books” did not know that the X-men and the Avengers were in the same universe. He asked me some questions and I felt pretty cool.

Note: I do not think I know everything about comics and if you quizzed me on some details I would not know a lot but I am familiar with a good chunk of the X-men and the Avengers , I am currently reading the Marvel event Civil War.

Moment #2

I carpool with another student teacher to our campus every day, he is male and not part of nerd culture. Through our conversations I have taught him about sci-fi and table top gaming and video games and today we discussed comic books. He asked me if they were still making comic books so I went on a long diatribe about Marvel versus DC and reboots and big events and movies and cartoons versus the actual comic books and so on and at the end I had a moment.

That’s two times in one day that I taught a boy about comic books….. I feel pretty damn cool and anyone who wants to call me “fake” or a “fan girl” can suck it.

Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to.  I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.
The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.
If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!
Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.
We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.
Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.
