ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a grant for women webcomic artists and apparently some people feel that itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s unfair that the grant is exclusively for women. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sorry, I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know it was illegal to make a grant for minorities. And DONÃ¢â‚¬â„¢T try to tell me women are not a minority in comics. Even in the enlightened world of webcomics. Just look at the Iron man challenge. I was awarded the Ã¢â‚¬Å“last vagina standingÃ¢â‚¬Â. Ew.
[Xerexes: Just a note that we also had a hefty discussion in the comments here about Lea's grant right after it was announced.]
I havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t gone crazy feminazi in some time but I started ranting right along with Lea while listening to this podcast. This woman doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t rant. She is a force. She has a grand pair of testicles and dares anyone to bring theirs to the table. SheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll listen, you just have to have the balls to say it to her face. If I ever have to get into a roller derby death match then I want this woman on my side.
