Wow, I’m never buying anything Tony Harris does again. Disgusting.

So after a lovely weekend of seeing women (including myself) argue with Dirk Manning on why posting this meme was a problem, now we have another comic creator lashing out at women who dare to go near the world of comics and geekdom but don’t pass their snuff test.
You know what?
FUCK THE SNUFF TEST.
Fuck the dudes who want to think they can judge women by what they wear.
Fuck the dudes who think that they are the gatekeepers for comics based on their opinion of what is genuine or not.
Fuck the dudes who think that if a woman wears sexy clothing she’s a whore or a slut.
Fuck the dudes who think women “prey on men” because they smile at them.
And fuck the dudes who feel they can ascribe motives to women based on what is clearly a, um, skewed vision of a gender.
Oh and to the folks who support these dudes with “oh boy he’s really a nice guy, really super super nice.” Get a clue, they are really nice person who says or posts shitty, misogynistic stuff.
