Escher Girls

Float like a butterfly, Sting like a WTF!?

This is a blog to archive and showcase the prevalence of certain ways women are depicted in illustrated pop media, specifically how women are posed, drawn, distorted, and/or sexualized out of context, often in ridiculous, impossible or disturbing ways that sacrifice storytelling.

See the "About" section in the sidebar for more details.

Remember that incredibly sexist ‘fake nerd girls’ thing Tony Harris posted on his Facebook? Luke McKinney on Cracked(a popular humor site) wrote an article about it, both poking fun at Harris as well as giving some serious arguments as to why the hate against fake nerd girls is nonsense. Most of his points have already been said here, but it’s nice to see that it’s getting more widespread. Link to the article: www.cracked.com/blog/the-7-most-ridiculous-things-about-calling-out-fake-fangirls/

This is good commentary. :)
