Anonymous said: What would your parents do if you brought a white guy back home to meet them anyway?
Depends on the white guy. My parents generally like people with degrees/advanced degrees, stable and/or respectable jobs, and good conversational skills. Charismatic people win them over easily (it’s how Obama got their vote, but then again, he was against McCain who has the charisma of day old dog shit).
They’ve gotten a lot more progressive over the years. Maybe it’s the natural way of things. It sort of helps that my mom went to school in a very liberal area and that my dad trusts my mom’s judgement in character a lot. I would even venture that they’d come around if I hypothetically brought home a female partner/significant other— it’d just take a little bit longer. Also if I didn’t come out to them first, they’d probably be hurt and would have a harder time accepting any same-sex SO because of that.
Been seeing that thing about the Milo Manara Spider Woman cover on my facebook and tumblr feeds a lot.
There are a lot of things to be said and I could probably write entire essays about my particular stance on this cover and similar controversies.
I’ll be honest, I don’t think there’s much wrong with the cover, especially considering that it was drawn by Milo Manara. I would go so far as to say that he makes complete sense and that I agree with him and his rationale for the cover almost completely except that…
"He also expressed his admiration for Greg Land’s alternative cover, also criticised, as more realistic and using models.”
… Burn this motherfucker. Greg Land is Satan and only one of Satan’s underlings could ever express appreciation for his sinful deeds

Oops, guess it’s too late for that. I am already a slut. I am already engaging in the sex freely and without (relative) prejudice.
Like a scarlet letter to the chest, I guess now I need some serious ink to advertise my unwholesome and dirtied nature to the world. Woe is me for the judgment of many is great and I am deeply apologetic for my misdeeds.
(Dad would probably not care as long as it looked cool. LIke I mean, my parents are pretty conservative, sure, but they can recognize the agency I have over my body and my life, whatever.)
