hi guys! this is a comic i made for a final in my comics in literature class. we had to do a research paper on a topic we’d discussed in class and then accompany it with a comic with a relevant subject. my paper was about hyper-sexualization of women in comic books, but i decided to broaden it out here as well as personalize it and make myself the subject and discuss something i’ve been subjected to in the convention circuit and on the internet as well as thousands of other women, as well as give a cue to thought about how the comic book industry as well as the video game industry and even just media in general (all of which are male dominated) push such ridiculous pressures onto girls and women.
also, it feels kind of silly to have to add this since i hope it’s obvious, but i am very aware that there are men that don’t subscribe to this attitude, and am incredibly grateful that these issues are brought to light to people other than the ones that are subjected to it.
anyway haha i have literally been staring at this for 9 hours i don’t even know which direction is up anymore. thanks for reading!!!
My name is Shawn - I’m Uncultured Project on YouTube. You might know me from my P4A video where I helped to build the school in Bangladesh named after John Green.
I’m asking for you to vote for The Uncultured Project here: http://dft.ba/-webbyvote
I’m asking this for three reasons:
- I’ve been nominated for a Webby – but I’m not going to win the Judge’s Award. The era of individuals with a camera winning a Webby are over. It’s all about big corporations, big NGOs, and big funding. My only hope at a Webby is to win the People’s Choice version of this award.
- There’s a difference between being a fan and being part of a community. All the other nominees are bigger, well-funded, properly staffed, and have huge fanbases. But there is a difference between a fanbase and a community. I want to show that a community can accomplish things that money and fans can’t.
- I will lose this without all the help I can get. Hank Green, Michael Buckley, and Tyler Oakley, and many others have helped me take the lead. But, with ten days left, everyday that lead shrinks by several percentage points. I will lose with without your support. Even with your help it will be an uphill battle. But I’d rather lose with your support than lose never knowing what could have been if I didn’t ask.
I’ve never asked for help on a voting contest if I thought it was just for my own benefit. But I can see how this could help me – especially now that I’ve had to come out of the closet and my world has been turned upside down. I want to sustain this project – and winning a Webby could be an important stepping stone.
This is one of many attempts to film this video in the middle of Bangladesh New Year’s celebrations. The Bangladesh calendar is a bit different than the Gregorian Calendar. And, as you can see, I just gave up and decided to write it all out instead :)
Shawn has collaborated with Nerdfighteria many times over the years to do some really incredible work. You can help him continue that work with a few simple clicks. Please vote!

Almost didn`t see him..
Look for the leopard..
I would die in the wild
Reblogging this for anyone who everyone who didn’t believe me when I told them the reason leopards have spots is for camoflauge
no fucking way is there a leopard in this picture.
holy fUCK THAT TOOK ME A WHILE TO SPOT BUT YEAH DUDE THERE IS A LEOPARD
I’ve scrolled past this so many times and thought it was a joke. I FINALLY FOUND THE LEOPARD.
It looks like he’s talking and filming himself.
Hey, I’m turtle, let me show you around my crib.
tbh it looks like he’s giving me advice and putting his hand on my shoulder y’know
“Good Morning Hank it’s… well I don’t know what day it is, I’m a turtle.”
“Hey! Hey! I think I finally made something cute.”
“Oh, yeah? Let’s see.”
“It’s a ‘shoebill.’ It’s big and blue and adorable. Nice, right?”
“It’s… hm. I don’t know. I like the blue, but something about those eyes is kind of creeping me out right now.”
“What? Come on. Those are friendly eyes. It wants to be your friend.”
“Okay. Okay, yeah. You’re right, evolution, I’m sorry. Should I feed it, maybe? What does it eat?”
“Oh Jesus Christ.”
“I really don’t want anyone to eat this wattle cup caterpillar.”
“Sure, evolution, that’s understandable.”
“I’m going to put some huge spikes on it.”
“Now I’m going to put more spikes on the spikes.”
“And I’ll make them sting!”
“And I’ll color the whole thing like a bad acid trip.”
“That might be overkill, but all right. I guess you really like this one. I bet it’ll be especially beautiful once it metamorphoses into a butterfly, huh?”
“What? Oh, no, this one doesn’t turn into a butterfly. It’s a hairy brown moth.”
Turtle is happy as fuck!
Can someone Photoshop this at the helm of the Titanic, with Leo holding it? Please? I don’t have the skills…
I am so done with this website
My awkward turtle mode, ladies and gentlemen.
