Go, Read: Janelle Asselin On Her Recent Experiences Including Multiple Screenshots Of Threats Made

Here. It could be that some of the screenshots of the threats -- taken from Asselin's survey of sexual harassment in comics, which I encourage every person eligible to take before it comes down in a few days -- appeared in other article, but I hadn't seen them. It is really painful to see someone have to make a case to work in an arts industry, as Asselin does at the article's conclusion, particuarly someone that has a lot to offer an industry that has so much going for it right now. That's where we are, though. We've made our proclamations and we've drawn our lines in the sand, in some cases for a third or fourth time; next time we'll be judged on our progress rather than our intentions.
