Hollywood Actresses Oppose Amnesty International Sex Worker Vote; Sex Workers and Their Supporters Tell Them Kindly to STFU

"I urge Ms. Dunham to reconsider her support of this petition, and to listen to the voices of sex workers." - Molly Crabapple

Amnesty International will be taking a vote on a new policy regarding sex work, deciding whether or not to support the decriminalization of the sex trade. A bunch of Hollywood actresses—including Lena Dunham—have signed a petition opposing this change in AI's policy, conflating decriminalization of sex work with legalizing human trafficking. However, sex workers and their supporters are speaking out, and one of their most fervent supporters is artist Molly Crabapple.

Puppets, Romance, and Open-Heart Surgery Take Center Stage in this Animated Short [VIDEO]

Our Adorable Past

I'm a big fan of short films and innovative animation. I Have Your Heart, a collaborative effort between New York illustrator Molly Crabapple, Melbourne animator Jim Batt, and musician Kim Boekbinder is both those things. Not to mention it's just plain good. "A sing‐a‐long song about love, loss, and open‐heart surgery," it uses paper puppets and stop-motion animation to create something that's half music video, half storybook. For more on the fascinating process of making the short, check out BoingBoing's interview with its trio of creators.

How to Get a Female Cartoonist on the News, Or At Least on Al Jazeera

Meanwhile...

Molly Crabapple is an artist and political cartoonist (and the founder of the loose international network of Dr Sketchy's Anti Art School, a mix of burlesque and life drawing with some decidedly geeky interests like Sandman and Transmetropolitan) who's drawn for the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and Playgirl, as well as Marvel (in Strange Tales 2 and Girl Comics) and DC (with her steampunk graphic novel Puppet Makers). Yesterday she joined protesters in Manhattan's financial district in a protest commemorating the one-year anniversary of the beginning of the Zuccotti Park encampment. She was among the more than one hundred people arrested, and naturally made sure she livetweeted the whole process, joining the small ranks of female cartoonists who've managed to bring notice to the movement through their art and actions. She was released last night. You can read her tweets here.
