Ask me about my feminist agenda.
I could have written a lecture piece about how outrageous it is that writer Chelsea Cain was forced off Twitter because of the disgusting behavior of misogynistic internet trolls. But this is a truth that is self-evident. As artist Richard Isanove put it on Facebook: “Are you F-ing kidding me. It’s 2016! How is Feminism still controversial?”
But more than our 13 NASTY WOMEN list, which I posted last weekend and happened to include Mockingbird (click here, if you are so inclined), I wanted to highlight some of the voices on Twitter that have come to Cain’s defense. Hopefully, she’ll return to Twitter.
Until I can buy my own shirt, this will have to do. Comics are for everyone. pic.twitter.com/sg6HICM0OU

#standwithchelseacain anyone who harasses or fosters harassment, in the creative community, or the greater comics community, is garbage.

The fact that my working in comics, as a woman and a feminist, could upset those f*cktards actually encourages me. #StandWithChelseaCain

I #StandWithChelseaCain because there is no reason for harassment of any kind – online or anywhere!
