Every single Marvel Studios movie has centered around a presumably straight, white, male protagonist, even if white women (mostly love interests) and men of color (support roles) have played roles in the film. The franchise is a box office juggernaut and has a ton of movies on this list, but we’ve gotten two to three movies about each of the men on the Avengers and there’s yet to be a film about Black Widow.

Both of Marvel’s ensemble films—The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy—trimmed down the superhero teams for their film adaptations, and the women characters, save for one, were the first to be cut. Most moviegoers will never know that women of color and LGBTQ characters were cut from Guardians of the Galaxy, but audiences will get to relate to the talking raccoon and the talking tree.

Black women have had to develop a larger vision of our society than perhaps any other group. They have had to understand white men, white women, and black men. And they have had to understand themselves. When black women win victories, it is a boost for virtually every segment of society.

that fact that revenge porn and leaking of women’s nudes exists at the same time as the readily accessible porn industry is an explicit example of the ways in which women are viewed as sex objects for male consumption. when men are denied the right to our bodies, they steal…

Got to chill with this cool dude for a couple hours yesterday! Getting to meet princelesscomic with chrissyplaysdressup was one of the coolest nights. Picking Mr. Whitley’s brain on comics and life and junk was real sweet. Yeah, I’d definitely love to grab a beer with this dude some time! I’m so bummed I had to leave this morning! I hope it’s cool if I post this Mr. Whitley!

Sorry guys, I’m just gonna be posing random dragoncon pics this week to relive it. Haha one of the coolest 3 days of my life.

City Coyotes by Sean Crane
I photographed these two coyotes within the city limits of Los Angeles. Granted they were in the expansive Griffith Park, but nice to see such healthy looking creatures so close to civilization. It was first thing in the morning when I was hiking in the park and came across these two coyotes, plus another, howling.


I saw a coyote the other day. Just walking down the sidewalk, on her own. Got to the corner and crossed the road against the light. I was 100% sure she’d get hit. Nope, made it across the road with not a second of hesitation. This wasn’t the first time I’ve seen a coyote. The last time was at one in the morning. This time it was 7:30 in the evening.
