Go, Read: Ming Doyle On Her Experiences Finding Work

The artist and cartoonist Ming Doyle has a response up here to a question about the role one's perceived attractiveness plays in getting work or not getting work. It's a solid, hopeful answer which pulls in a lot of Doyle's experiences. One thing you might do if you're puzzled by this issue is look at the instances Doyle chooses to recall in answering this question. They aren't all abominable, but they're all things that are unecessary and in some small way, demeaning or not fully respectful. Sometimes it's those kind of things, things that can be corrected in a more direct way, that count just as much as a declaration to not tolerate the actions of others. It's just as important, too.
