what’s this?
Little girls read comics from the very beginning of their incarnation??





“Girl reading comic book in newsstand” by Teenie Harris (c. 1940-1945) © 2006 Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh

That sound you hear is thousands of wangsting sexist fanboys shrieking in horror.
Suck it.

I never saw the second one! Lookit her little plaid jacket and cap! LOOKIT HER PUPPY!!
She’s in fandom heaven right there. And can I just point out that she’s a black girl reading comics? Whatever shit white women get for enjoying nerd stuff, WOC get it 500x worse, both from the fans and from the media itself… but they’ve been true fans from the beginning too.
All the more shameful, then, that comics and comics fans continue to perpetuate racism and sexism. It’s basically saying that precious little girls like this one don’t have the right to like the things they like, to just sit down and enjoy a damn comic book without fear of encountering prejudice or negative images of themselves. And if you can say that, I’m not entirely certain you qualify as human.
