#bigthighproblems

YOU CAN GET THEM REPAIRED THOUGH. There’s a place in NYC called Denim Therapy; I’ve had my favorite jeans fixed by them, where it was almost as big a hole as this one. They use some kind of really tough lattice-type cotton and so far (it’s been 6 months) the jeans are still perfect.

You just mail them in with a note explaining what you want fixed and they mail them back in like two weeks. It was like $15 too - SO WORTH IT since jeans are a bitch and a half to shop for.

In the post-World War II era, the Klan experienced a huge resurgence. Its membership was skyrocketing, and its political influence was increasing, so Kennedy went undercover to infiltrate the group. By regularly attending meetings, he became privy to the organization’s secrets. But when he took the information to local authorities, they had little interest in using it. The Klan had become so powerful and intimidating that police were hesitant to build a case against them.

Struggling to make use of his findings, Kennedy approached the writers of the Superman radio serial. It was perfect timing. With the war over and the Nazis no longer a threat, the producers were looking for a new villain for Superman to fight. The KKK was a great fit for the role.

In a 16-episode series titled “Clan of the Fiery Cross,” the writers pitted the Man of Steel against the men in white hoods. As the storyline progressed, the shows exposed many of the KKK’s most guarded secrets. By revealing everything from code words to rituals, the program completely stripped the Klan of its mystique. Within two weeks of the broadcast, KKK recruitment was down to zero. And by 1948, people were showing up to Klan rallies just to mock them.

In case anyone was wondering about the cultural power of comics and why representation matters…

As an incredibly forward thinking feminist is it hard sometimes to see how comics treat their female characters?

gailsimone:

Absolutely.

Sometimes, I just shake my head. And it’s not always malicious, I would say it is often just inexperience and a lack of awareness of the new audience.

People sold Model T’s at one point, but eventually, car salespeople realized it was time to have a new model. But with comics, there are still people trying to sell that Model T.

In my experience in the industry, genuine, public and virulent misogyny is relatively rare. But there are a lot of old-fashioned ideas that still have a lot of power in high circles because they sold well a hundred billion years ago.

It’s frustrating, and I say again, it’s odd that some of the most successful and critically acclaimed writers still have done relatively little forward motion in these areas.  

yesika asked:

Will Jean Grey have her own comic book series in the near future?

brianmichaelbendis:

There are discussions

As someone who was never a huge Jean Grey fan (largely because of the way her character was utilized rather than anything about her character itself) I find myself liking this idea very much. I’ve seriously enjoyed the reenvisioning of Jean Grey in All New X-Men—especially the break-up of Scott and Jean at an early age—and I’d love to see her truly take the center stage as an independent powerful woman in a story about learning to be even more independent and powerful and wise.

Besides, Cyclops has already got a solo title. Jean Grey deserves one just as much, if not more, than he does.
