Because this keeps coming up.

You are the perfect size, shape, gender, and sexuality to cosplay that character you love. 

I’m not saying you are NEARLY the perfect size, shape, gender and sexuality to play that character you love.

I am saying you are the EXACTLY CORRECT AND PERFECT size, shape, gender and sexuality to cosplay that character you love.

I know this because that character and I are friends and they TOLD me. It was at a Ben And Jerry’s, over milkshakes. They QUITE SPECIFICALLY SAID that they wished you would cosplay them because the match was so perfect.

Also? 

They said naysayers can go **** themselves. 

Thank you.

Gail

PS.  Good milkshakes, B&J!

Confused Cats Against Feminism is a project of We Hunted the Mammoth:The New Misogyny, tracked and mocked. You should totally go there, like right now.

I won’t be posting any more John Byrne images for today. Just one day, tomorrow I’ll be back. This is the reason why.

John Byrne today on his website:

Just spent a few minutes on the IMDb, clicking thru images of fans in costume at San Diego. A reminder of one of the many reasons I don’t do cons any more.

Okay, all in good fun, right? And some of the costumes are truly spectacular. But many… aren’t. Takes me back to the few times I was talked into being one of the judges at various costume parades, and I found myself wondering what some of the entrants saw when they looked in a mirror. Surely, there must be a point at which they think Well, this just isn’t working!

Apparently not!

This wouldn’t bug me so much, I guess, except for the negative reinforcement aspect. A civilian wanders by the con, and sees a bunch of fat guys bulging out of their Batman and/or Captain America costumes. That civilian will move on more convinced than ever that comic fans really are a few cards short of a deck.

sigh…..

The full thread can be read here

This is not the first time John has put down cosplay. He’s actually somewhat polite for him in this case. 

This is a very personal subject for me. My wife is a huge fan of Batgirl because of Gail Simone. So the last time we went to a con, she worked for months on making a costume. An hour after we got there, someone said she was too fat for the costume.

She told me about it in tears and wanted to leave then and there. I convinced her to stay but she changed her clothes and her weekend was not as fun as she had hoped and planned it to be.

It’s attitudes like John’s and others who put down those that are excited to dress up that made this guy think it was okay to tell my wife, a mother of two with our kids right there as he made the comment that she was too fat.

So today I don’t much feel like looking at John Byrne art. I hope you’ll understand. Thanks for your time.
