All Star Western #33
"Painting the town dead" is a play on the phrase "Painting the town for the low, low cost of $100."
…Anyway, I think Jonah might actually die in this story! It would be okay if he did, seeing as how he is a stranger in a strange time and there’s an alternate (perhaps more real?) version of himself already living in this Old West. It would be quite the exciting way for All Star Western to end! I’m a huge fan of stories where the main character is killed in the end. That’s why I like the New Testament so much…
He doesn’t stay dead. Kinda the trope namer for the “come back from the grave” idea, actually.
Do I really have to worry about spoiling the end of a 2,000 year old book?
You’ll pry my Oxford comma from my cold, dead, and lifeless hands.

As you can see I went way negative on the Wonder Woman costume reveal gnashing my teeth and ripping the costume to shreds while burning my bra and screaming about the patriarchy.
Hey Wonder Woman you’re wearing those heels because plenty of women think they’re sexy right?
Somedays there’s not enough desk to head and booze to drink.
The only problem with those signs you see in cubicles that say “BANG HEAD HERE”?
They never let me pick whose head.
The heels are ridiculous, but the most tiresome part of that picture is yet another sword being shoved in her hand.
George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.
"Another scene I remember now as an adult is every morning at school we started the day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag…there was the American flag flying over the camp but I could also see the barbed wire fence and the sentry towers pointing at us from my schoolhouse window as I recited the words ‘With liberty and justice for all’." - George Takei, The Daily Show (July 24, 2014).

Left is the new Wonder Woman. Being deemed still too skinny and frail.
Right is Kacy Catanzaro, the first female to advance to the finals of American Ninja. Considered strong and inspiring to female athletes.
Stop assuming someone is weak based off your closed minded ignorant ideals.
I hadn’t really considered this. Interesting point!
I still think we do need to have a larger discussion about Hollywood allowing for a wider range of female body types to be shown on film, but yeah, this is worth noting.
I’m 5’ 4” and 120, and Kacy is shorter and lighter than ME. William Marston had it right all along — “Any woman can be a Wonder Woman!”
Being Tough On The Outside…
…doesn’t mean you don’t have fragile spots inside.
Can’t tell if this is from Pushing Daisies, or if Lee has just seen how badly Halt and Catch Fire has turned out.
It was my friend’s mom’s birthday yesterday. Both our moms are single parents and I started thinking about how strong they had to be for us. Then I started thinking about women of color in general. Being a PoC ain’t a walk in the park by itself, but add being a woman in a patriarchal society? Nahhh. I can’t imagine how hard it must be for women of color. AND THEN people have the nerve to call em out on being hard and growing a thick skin, telling them to smile and be happy n’ shit. Fuck outta here. Women that face all that bull and STILL manage to come out on top amaze me.
These thoughts inspired this piece. A black Wonder Woman.
You honestly want to tell me SHE needs a sword? Puh-lease. When she wants a weapon to deal with you, she’ll tear off your arm and beat you with it.
And make you happy that’s the worst she did.
