Ariell Johnson: Taking The Comic Shop World By Storm
Imagine your dream comic book shop. Better yet, it doesn’t just have to be a comic book store. It can be your ideal coffee shop. Thinking of somewhere friendly, warm, and welcoming? You might just find it in Philadelphia, where Amalgam Comics and Coffeehouse just opened its doors. And behind that store stands our very own Storm--Ariell R. Johnson, creator, owner, and first black woman to open a comic book shop on the East Coast. Amalgam has been ...

"The question, then, is not whether transgender women are enforcing old-fashioned, binary ideas about gender. The question is how do we — all of us — make space for ambiguity and specificity?"
Trans or not, it's a hard question to answer.

Bernie Sanders' health care proposal is not just a poorly written, underfunded gamble to upend everything from Medicare to the Affordable Care Act, it turns out that his plan would also end affordable access to abortion for poor and working middle class women. And, it could even jeopardize contraceptive coverage.

<quote> "More women and more people of diversity in general are seeing game development as a potential viable career for themselves," Edwards says. "That's despite the very vocal public crap that was going on during gamergate. Even before gamergate, the industry had a reputation as being a boy's club."

That reputation, says graduate student Allison Comrie, comes from the games themselves, whether it was the scantily clad prostitutes of "Grand Theft Auto" or even the damsel-in-distress storylines of many early Nintendo games.

"These are games that don't really place women in good light," Comrie says. "They use women as objects rather than people with agency. Those games give players ideas of what women are.

"That's why I'm here. That's why a lot of us here. We want to make games that show women — or different people — in a better light so it can perpetuate a community that's more unified and diverse." </quote>
