I feel like this should be pretty self-explanatory. I’m drawing these for a zine at my college (and they have a tumblr! lips-appstate.tumblr.com!), but submissions are due today, so they’re a bit more rushed than I would have liked.

I tried to be inclusive and not-shitty. Hopefully I succeeded at that. There are more of these I’d like to draw, but like I said, time limitations :P

Yesterday my mom posted a picture on Facebook of my 5 year old brother Sam wearing a pair of shoes he picked out for his first day of preschool.She explained to him in the store that they were really made for girls. Sam then told her that he didn’t care and that “ninjas can wear pink shoes too.”Sam went to preschool and got several compliments on his new shoes. Not one kid said anything negative toward him about it.
However, my mom received about 20 comments on the photo from various family members saying how “wrong” it is and how “things like this will affect him socially” and, put most eloquently by my great aunt, “that shit will turn him gay.”
My mom then deleted the photo and told Sam that he can wear whatever he wants to preschool, that it’s his decision. If he wants to wear pink shoes, he can wear pink shoes.
Sam then explained to her that he didn’t like them because they were pink, he liked them because they were “made out of zebras” and zebras are his favorite animal :)
What does it say about society when a group of adults could stand to take a lesson in humanity from a class of preschoolers?

Words cannot express how happy this makes me.

Omg forever reblog

those shoes are fly as hell doe

YAS SAM LET THEM KNOW THAT YOU COULD WERK DOS SHOES BEW BEW 

Awwwww!

update: kate elliot is not actually a woman of color and i’m confused as to how she ended up on this list :(

I see these lists go by and I always sigh because I’m not included again, and then I shrug and do nothing. And I realize I’m part of the problem for doing that. So let me include my book and others by wonderful POC women authors not on this list who write spec fic (sci fi, fantasy, dystopian)

Prophecy by Ellen Oh

Summer of the Mariposas by Guadalupe Garcia McCall

Vengeance Bound by Justina Ireland

Shatter me by Taheri Mafi

Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves

Cat Girl’s Day Off by Kimberly Pauley

Living Violet by Jaime Reed

The Hunter Kiss series by Marjorie Liu

Into the Wise Dark by Neesha Meminger

Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor

The Girl with Borrowed Wings by Rinsai Rossetti

The Twelve Kingdoms by Fuyumi Ono

If you see any I’ve missed, please add! I hope we can compile a more comprehensive list at some point.

i’ll be on this list on day just wait
