Tony Harris and militant feminists
This just showed up on my Facebook wall, even though the news is nearly a year ago.

Tony Harris, who apparently is considered a big name in comic books, posted this on his Facebook wall a year ago:

Quote:I cant remember if Ive said this before, but Im gonna say it anyway. I dont give a crap.I appreciate a pretty Gal as much as the next Hetero Male. Sometimes I even go in for some racy type stuff ( keeping the comments PG for my Ladies sake) but dammit, dammit, dammit I am so sick and tired of the whole COSPLAY-Chiks. I know a few who are actually pretty cool-and BIG Shocker, love and read Comics.So as in all things, they are the exception to the rule. Heres the statement I wanna make, based on THE RULE: “Hey! Quasi-Pretty-NOT-Hot-Girl, you are more pathetic than the REAL Nerds, who YOU secretly think are REALLY PATHETIC. But we are onto you. Some of us are aware that you are ever so average on an everyday basis. But you have a couple of things going your way. You are willing to become almost completely Naked in public, and yer either skinny( Well, some or most of you, THINK you are ) or you have Big Boobies. Notice I didnt say GREAT Boobies? You are what I refer to as “CON-HOT”. Well not by my estimation, but according to a LOT of average Comic Book Fans who either RARELY speak to, or NEVER speak to girls. Some Virgins, ALL unconfident when it comes to girls, and the ONE thing they all have in common? The are being preyed on by YOU. You have this really awful need for attention, for people to tell you your pretty, or Hot, and the thought of guys pleasuring themselves to the memory of you hanging on them with your glossy open lips, promising them the Moon and the Stars of pleasure, just makes your head vibrate. After many years of watching this shit go down every 3 seconds around or in front of my booth or table at ANY given Con in the country, I put this together. Well not just me. We are LEGION. And here it is, THE REASON WHY ALL THAT, sickens us: BECAUSE YOU DONT KNOW SHIT ABOUT COMICS, BEYOND WHATEVER GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH YOU DID TO GET REF ON THE MOST MAINSTREAM CHARACTER WITH THE MOST REVEALING COSTUME EVER. And also, if ANY of these guys that you hang on tried to talk to you out of that Con? You wouldnt give them the fucking time of day. Shut up you damned liar, no you would not. Lying, Liar Face. Yer not Comics. Your just the thing that all the Comic Book, AND mainstream press flock to at Cons. And the real reason for the Con, and the damned costumes yer parading around in? That would be Comic Book Artists, and Comic Book Writers who make all that shit up.

The Jezebel mob of radical feminists came out of the woodwork and accused him of being a horrible misogynist. He made this follow-up posting:

Quote:So heres my follow up commentary. Tried to “engage” my detractors on Twitter. Big mistake. Not gonna backpeddle. Not one step. I tried to be clear at the beginning by saying I know there are legit Cosplayers who know the material and love it. So if you wanna gloss over that and accuse my statements as being all inclusive of Cosplay, then blow me. See, this is why I posted this HERE, on MY page. You dont like it? Leave. Dont threaten to stop buying my work, because Im sure most of you who threw that gauntlet down, never did to begin with. Good riddance. Hey all you self righteous fuck-faces out there who are spewing even MORE hatred at me, than you accused me of spewing. pfffft. Really, thats how you come at me? Once you have moved on to hate on someone else….Good Riddance. But the one thing I HAVE to address is the use of the word MISOGYNY. So I am a Misogynist? Why? Because I frown upon Posers who are sad, needy fakers who use up all my air at Cons? Sorry, while you Cos”Play” Im actually at work. Thats my office. Fuck you. I actually dont hate women, I dont fear them either. Nor do I mistrust them. I do not portray or Objectify half naked women in my work. I never have. I have always been VERY vocal about my dislike of that practice, and that my view is and has been that T&A in comics is a Pox. If you wanna come at me with accusations of Misogyny and sexism, youll be wrong. I think there are several Hundred “PRos” I could rattle off that are doing a fine job of perpetuating that crap without ANY help from me. Its not helping to further our industry. Hey haters, Im not sad, lonely, stupid, uneducated, gay, nor do I wear Assess for a Hat. Im not a Sexist, and have been very vocal about the fact that its a GOOD thing to see so many female fans at shows, and I treat them with the same kindness and respect as I do ANY male fan I meet. I guess the one mistake I made in my original post was that I excluded Men. Let me rectify that…… SOME of you MEN, are as bad as SOME of the Women Cosplayers, I talked about earlier. There. Oh and to all of you guys who are my friends, and pros who I work with, dont go and try and defend me or anything I wrote. Youll just get shit on. Thanks though. And lastly, Bleeding Cool, and Rich Johnston are Shithead, scumbags, and this isnt the first time his camp has come after me. Fuck you Rich.

* * *

Now, I really wish Tony was a better writer. As far as I can tell, his real objection -- and if Tony was more involved in the manosphere, he would be able to articulate it better -- is women who are not particularly attractive wearing really skimpy costumes at comic rallies to get male attention. The women have no intention of putting out, indeed, these woman usually get off on rejecting men and hurting their feelings. Tony is right that Comic book conventions have no need for these kind of women.

Tony is absolutely right that woman should not be hanging around socially awkward men in racy costumes and then "complain" about how the men in various ways, some rude (remember, ladies, the men there are socially awkward), express sexual interest in them.

I put "complain" in quotes because these ladies aren't actually complaining. They are bragging. These ladies -- I've seen their online postings -- take a perverse pleasure out of expressing sexual availability to men with no game so they can reject them, and brag to other ladies about the horrible rude things these guys did.

And if a man points out these women's bullshit, they get labeled a "misogynist". Women like this is why we need a manosphere.

RE: Tony Harris and militant feminists
Gotta give him props for this:

"Not gonna backpeddle. Not one step. I tried to be clear at the beginning by saying I know there are legit Cosplayers who know the material and love it. So if you wanna gloss over that and accuse my statements as being all inclusive of Cosplay, then blow me. See, this is why I posted this HERE, on MY page. You dont like it? Leave."

Never apologize; never backpedal. Most of us know this, but to the newbies, once feminists smell blood, they go insane and really attack. I assume this died down because this guy wouldn't break frame and play their game of "this week's outrage."

Props, brother if you're reading.

This is pretty much the way to handle feminist trolling.

This guy created something. And the Jezebel crowd wants to come in and dictate to him what his opinions ought to be about the world in which he works. Fuck you! You don't matter if I don't give a fuck about you. And I don't give a fuck about you.

Jizzabel cares more about what happens at fucking comic book conventions than the plights of women living in countries in Africa and Middle East are actually threatened by genital mutilation, rape, torture, and death.

Yeah, shame he's not a better writer however I'm glad he responded as he did. If anything he explained himself too much. A quick "Shut up, this is my line of work and you know nothing" would have been sufficient.
