Supreme Court May Decide Boobies Case

There’s a lot here in this story. There’s a couple of fifteen year old girls who were barred from handing out breast cancer awareness bracelets by their school district. There’s the much debated trend in breast cancer awareness campaigns to skew to a focus on the sexual appeal of breasts rather than the saving of lives as the motivating factor. There’s the parents who thought that this was a violation of their daughters’ First Amendment rights that was worth taking it all the way to a federal appeals court.

But mostly, there’s the undeniably delightful idea that a Supreme Court justice of America might say the word “boobies” on the record during a session.

Rebecca Hall On Strong Female Characters: “We Need To Be Villains Too”

“There’s been a sort of trend for awhile of people writing strong women as women who are morally right, which is so uninteresting. It’s no fun and frankly it’s a massive disservice to womankind. It boxes us in to making these sort of slightly dull, virtuous choices… We need to be villains too. We need to be messy and sloppy and three-dimensional and complicated, and that’s writing a strong woman.”Rebecca Hall tells it like it is about female characters while discussing her new movie Closed Circuit.

Preach it, Ms. Hall. People all too often throw around the phrase “strong female character” like there’s only one way for a female character to be strong. You know what I’m talking about: Your butt kicking, heroic, “don’t need anybody but myself” badass. And she’s great! But she’s not enough. Give us female characters who are physically strong and physically weak. Morally bad and morally good. Mentally secure and struggling to keep it together. Give us female characters who are strong by virtue of being actual, complex human beings.

And yes, while you’re at it, give us more female villains. Those are my jam.

Attention All Game Developers: The Boob Jam Needs You

So. Boobs. I have a pair. I’m ambivalent about them. I like them just fine, but they’re more bother than my other body parts. They hurt when I lie on my stomach. They hurt when I ride horses. They hurt when I’m on my period. I used to work at a Renaissance faire, where my boobs were regularly pressed into a steel-boned corset. I can still remember the way my rib cage would unfold with relief at the end of the day. If somebody knocks at my door while I’m in my pajamas, my first instinct is to find a bra, because even if my torso is covered, it’s not decent. And don’t get me started on bra shopping, that Sisyphean hell rivaled only by the eternal quest to find a flattering pair of jeans.

This is not how we talk about boobs in video game culture (or really, anywhere). We talk about three things: size, the amount of cover, and whether or not said size and cover are justified by the character. Boobs have but one purpose, and all we do is argue the pros and cons therein. It’s frustrating, and tedious, and oh so very boring.

That’s where the Boob Jam comes in.

SDCC 2013 Saw the First Woman-Moderated Movie Panel In Hall H

You’d think that, after years and years of SDCCs, there would have been at least one woman-moderated panel in the hallowed hall H, right? Wrong. This year was the first.

From the Indiewire article:

Women have moderated panels at the smaller cons before and in the other rooms at Comic-Con, but never at the main show itself. The closest it’s gotten to this before was Jenna Busch moderated a TV panel in Hall H on Sunday. But, usually those panels aren’t the 6,500 behemoths that movie panels are. They actually have removed seats from the hall for reasons I still don’t quite understand. This year, it finally happened with LA Times’ Hero Complex editor Gina McIntyre, who moderated the panel for Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem.

Women dominated San Diego Comic-Con this year in more ways than one. We’ve already reported about how women are leading the conversations when it comes to SDCC social media discussion, and now Indiewire has a great article on  how the female presence was felt at the biggest con in the country. Worth noting in particular was the “Women Who Kick Ass” panel, which featured the above lovely badasses (from left to right): Tatiana Maslany, Katee Sackhoff, Maggie Q, Danai Gurira, and Michelle Rodriguez.

Remember When We Said Man of Steel‘s Jimmy Olsen Might Be a Woman? We Have New Info On That.

Earlier this year speculation arose that Man of Steel might be genderswapping Jimmy Olsen. There’s no Jimmy in the movie, the theory goes, but there is a Jenny Olsen, and she’s seen in the trailer running away from an explosion with Perry White, which would seem to suggest that she has something to do with the Daily Planet. After that initial rush of “OMG they might genderswap Jimmy Olsen, that would be so cool!,” the whole thing kind of died down.

Until now. If this new detail we’ve seen is true, you can count that rumor as…
