Twilight 2 by CuttingRoom Twilight 2 by CuttingRoom
Today's we've got another strip from the man, the myth, the legend Ibai Canales .

Edward's a pansy and we thought it would be funny to have him get murderized by another totally lame vampire. Then we decided that rather than using Blade (zing!), we should use a bad ass like The Count from Sesame Street. If you're into seeing children's TV characters at their worst, you should check out a video we made awhile back called Growing Up Hard In Imagination Land.

Another thought entirely: Twilight, Harry Potter, and The Golden Compass have some shit in common. All three started as books and have made their way to the silver screen, and all three fuck with my head. Ignoring the varying literary merit, just look at their presentation of gender. Twilight seems to offer us a world in which females fall down a lot and need men to catch them--and if no man's around, the womens throw themselves down until a dude shows up. Harry Potter has plenty of strong females in it, but it's generally the men who do the heavy lifting. Finally my favorite--The Golden Compass depicts a totally bad ass chick. She's not a man hater or afraid of men, but she doesn't need them anymore than a fish needs a bicycle. She kicks ass. And here's the part that really fucks with my head. The Golden Compass is the only one written by a dude. Why are the biggest misogynists women?

You wonder too, don't you?

This comic has actually inspired me to make a anti-Twilight image of my own featuring my own vampire characters pwning Edward's wannabe ass. =D

As well as one featuring my cat character taking out Jacob Black (an equally pansy ass version of a werewolf). I like Taylor Lauter better in "Sharkboy and Lavagirl" anyway.

same can be said with Joss and Buffy... but hey, Charmed was created by a woman, so not all popular female writers are like that :) also, look at Hiromu Arakawa and her FMA manga series: Hawkeye, Izumi, Olivier, Winry, Pinako, etc... all strong women created by a female writer :D

CuttingRoom Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2010
True, but those manga series aren't nearly as popular as Twilight. I think your Buffy example is dead on though. And you're right, Charmed is a definite counter-example.

I guess women think that writing about romance and a girl NEEDING a guy is what teens like and is good and stuff. May I point out that The Golden Compass doesn't get nearly as much attention as HP and Twilight? I never even heard of it until they did the film. :shrug: I'm happy to say that my characters DON'T depend on men. :-)

JessamineDiane Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Or women for that matter. :XD: I do have a couple who depend on each other, but not in a Twilighty sort of way, in a way that they're in a romantic relationship and they love and support each other. They wouldn't sit down and die if one left, but they would be upset.

I think in general though, popular fictions don't have enough strong and independent women. Somehow that doesn't jibe well with the public.

Elite women like to think they are superior to the rest of the female masses.

Hmm... but by the definition of elite, aren't they superior? Ha-ha! I've caught you in a semantic trap!

That's right, because they are superior, they also act superior :P
