For some mysterious reason your quote on James Wood posted twice?

Durr! True. I killed the one with fewer notes. No idea why that happened… probably something to do with the crap broadband.

“Here’s the thing, Mr. Woods. At that time I was not a public persona. I had done a couple years on a soap opera as an actress, but you wouldn’t know me from Adam. I’m sure you’ve racked your brain trying to remember how you could’ve possibly hit on the actress Amber Tamblyn at a diner almost two decades ago. You think, it’s not possible, there’s no way I would’ve been so stupid as to hit on a 16-year-old known actress. But I wasn’t known then, James. I was just a girl. And I’m going to wager that there have been many girls who were just girls or women who were just women who you’ve done this to because you can get away with it.”

Yayyy! In case you missed it, I previously covered Stephanie St. Clair here

It’s worth a read if for no other reason than to see her amazing newspaper ads.

I’m super not-okay with that Mike Dawson “Why Did They Come” comic. If you’re a graphic artist in the U.S.? You know damn well what Maus is. Goyische graphic artists do not get to use the mouse-cat analogy for people fleeing their countries due to oppression, especially if those people aren’t Jewish, and certainly not if the text of the panel that does involve Jews absurdly downplays what was actually happening.

Like, you can make the exact same point without appropriating a seminal document of the Shoah’s aftermath.

Oh, it’s even worse than I thought. It says “Apologies to Art Spiegelman and Don Bluth.” Nope. Nope nope nope, you don’t get to rip this off. Make the same point and just change the fucking mice/cat thing – it’s not that hard.

Goyim don’t get to use incredibly important allegories of Jewish oppression at will. This shit needs to stop.

“Apologies, but plagiarism and also a barely veiled appropriation of the Shoah”

This makes me really uncomfortable. I mean… the whole Jews-as-rats imagery used in Maus was explicit reclamation of an intensely antisemitic trope and… It’s just not an okay thing for goyim to imitate.

Ever.

Plus when I saw the comic one of the panels was instantly recognizable as a pogrom and… it wasn’t okay.

^^^^

The comic on Dawson’s tumblr has like 44,000 notes, and this post has like a thousand. 

Please boost Jewish voices.
