Proud to be ELIXHER’s cover girl! In the Body Issue we create a space to celebrate our bodies, our narratives and our truths.
I’ve written about my experience shooting the cover and helping shape the theme of the issue with ELIXHER editor in chief Kimberley McLeod.
Lastly, I will be joined by Kimberley and the other queer women of the Body Issue who bravely bare all — Kim Crosby, Mia McKenzie and Tiona McClodden — on Thursday April 24 for a LIVE conversation via Google Hangouts at 3pm ET/12pm PT.

There has only been five female characters comfirmed playable compared to fifteen male characters.

I’m amazed at those exact numbers because 33% is the point where men will start thinking there’s a majority of women in a group.

Except that 5 out of a group of 20 is 25%, so it’s still even lower than the average where men start thinking that the majority is women. Which isn’t all that surprising given that video gaming is sort of a haven for misogynists.

It need not be exactly 33%, that was just the number arrived at in one study. The greater point is that men perceive something to be “women dominated” before we’ve even hit equality—the 50/50 mark. This kind of whining from men that has no rational basis is something I like to call manthematics. It’s like mathematics, only everything is skewed because male egos.

Are you fucking kidding me, TIME Magazine?

The word choice of &#8220;hysteria&#8221; alone speaks volumes as to the &#8220;thinking&#8221; that went into this article.

Dreamworks is doing something even Pixar hasn’t tried: A black female heroine

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a computer animated feature starring a black character.

One studio woke up and was like, &#8220;You mean we can have PoC voice characters that aren&#8217;t goofy animals?&#8221;
That thing about the white imagination being limited is running through my mind right now.

Holy shit where does this come from?

What I mean when I say “I can’t do that”- Anxiety Version:

  • I am unable to do that
  • I am too stressed out to do that
  • I cannot face the humiliation of attempting to do that
  • My body will physically not allow me to do that
  • I am on the verge of a panic attack
  • I cannot do that

What people hear:

  • I am unwilling to do that
  • I am just shy
  • I am overreacting
  • I am lazy
  • I need to get more experience in social situation to help my anxiety
  • I need a push
  • I don’t want to do that
