I really hate hearing that Secret Headquarters is on the list of bad places now. I wish he could pull his head out of his ass and just sell the damn comic. Sigh. Oh well, that's what Cosmic Cat is for, right?
Yeah, it does make me sad, especially because I invested so much time in doing things for his shop BECAUSE he claimed to be so positive and inclusive. I guess his insistence upon calling women “female” no matter how many times I corrected him should have been my first clue!
But yes, I go to Cosmic Cat now. Small and cramped, but nice folk. And they have discounts for pulls!!! SWEET because I have A LOT of pulls.
I plan on hitting The Bookshelf tomorrow, too. You know, to spread around my love and money to businesses that chose to not vilify Saga.
An update, for those who might care:
I will no longer be organizing any Unicorn Parties or Ladies’ Nights for Secret Headquarters in Tallahassee. I won’t be helping Secret Headquarters with FCBD or Free RPG Day. More immediately, I will no longer be running a table at the weekly D&D Encounters game.
I’m sorry to leave such a big part of my life behind, because there is little about which I am more passionate than furthering the inclusion of women (not “females”, but WOMEN) in geek culture. I really enjoyed putting together those shin-digs, and I remain immensely proud of them, and grateful for the opportunity to welcome so many non white males between the ages of 13 and 30 to the fold.
Unfortunately, the owner and I no longer see eye-to-eye on some topics dealing with gender and related issues, and have parted ways.
See you all on the funny pages!
iron-han said:What the fuck, Brian. Just carry the stupid comic by demand/order or something, jesus. He’ll special order “racy” variation covers of Deja Thoris of Mars and display Crossed in plain sight but won’t order this comic? HMMMM.
I promised I’d bust this out:
Yeah. I’m to the point now where I’m p much ACTIVELY trying to get him to just fucking ban me from the shop.
There are two possibilites here:
I’ve taken the gloves off on facebook - there’s some seriously bad press happening. He’s gonna regret “avoiding” that part of social media.
- His preshus white Jesus won’t condone him selling anything with consensual, enjoyable gay sex between two men. Lesbian sex? Jesus is fine with that, after all, he’s a red-blooded American man! Two chicks diggin’ each other’s hawt, right? Dudes ass raping each other? That’s fine, because it’s hateful and violent. But when a man’s face is shown smiling while surrounded by penises! OH NO, WATCH OUT, JEBUS IS COMIN’ FOR YOU!
- He’s wrong, but refuses to admit it. He made a knee-jerk reaction and now won’t back down. If he really loves his daughter, he’d teach her that it’s ok to make mistakes and that we can all learn from them.
And I’m not gonna be shy telling the folks at Cosmic Cat why I’m there today at lunch. And I think I may approach Rich Templin about another radio interview about the issue.
But yeah. He sells Crossed. And The Boys. And Preacher. And Batwoman, for that matter.
Oh, and lets not forget that shit like this is ALWAYS on display, right next to the cashwrap.
I’mma just let Mr. Takei here dance me out.
