OMG JOHN MAYER WHY DO YOU SUCK??? Even US magazine questions your judgment. Celie’s Revenge points out that black women getting fucked by white men isn’t in and of itself a sign of an anti-racist agenda.
Anders Loves Maria is FINALLY OVER omg. Here’s the first strip.

I realized my poetry in praise of women’s bodies was too vague, too non-specific. I spent too much time decoding the love of fat women in other people’s poetry.
