after writing for a few hours i look up from my computer and this is what i see.
that’s normal, right?
Because no matter what we do there will always be unevolved cowards among us. and the anonymity of the Internet brings out some people’s worst instincts.
please read my words carefully… I said some people. and its only some people. but those people seem really awful.
truthfully, it is not just female creators. a lot of people take weird, hateful shit from weird people. truthfully, honestly, a lot of us get showered with lovely thoughts all day as well but the sickening stuff stands out because… it just does.
but I think that all of us would hope that we would have gotten to a place as a society where our mothers, sisters, daughters and wives could go on the Internet without having to worry about being called a whore for having an opinion.
I think what rattles most of us in the comic book community is the fact that someone could read a bunch of comic books, with very specific, simple moral themes with highly moral characters, fighting the fight for good, and COMPLETELY MISS THE POINT.
you know what Capt. America would never do? he would never go on the Internet anonymously and slam anyone.
the point of the stories, the good ones :-), is to show us what we could be. not to waddle around in the minutia of comic book science but to enjoy a world were someone is fighting the good fight. a world we hope we could live in one day.
just because you are posting anonymously doesn’t mean that those thoughts are not yours. it is not role-play, it is not a character, that is who you really are. that is the energy you are putting out in the world. this isn’t some mask you are hiding behind… this is who you REALLY ARE.
and if who you really are is a bully, anonymous or not, I truly feel bad for you. I really do. I feel bad that you’re hurting so badly that you think you need to do this.
but there is NO excuse to attempt to punish others under the cloak of anonymous. none.

The Ultimate Warrior passed away from a massive heart attack, according to TMZ.
According to the report, officials classified Warrior’s death as natural, which means that no drugs or alcohol were involved.
Warrior died last Tuesday after collapsing at an Arizona hotel.
Once again, our thoughts and prayers go out to Warrior’s family, friends, and fans.
Fake is like the worst word you could possibly use to describe anything, you know? What are you talking about? What is fake? It’s a television show, and a live performance. Nothing’s fake about it. We’re not telling you we’re out their fighting each other. We’re going out there to entertain you. I consider myself an athlete. I train like an athlete, I eat like an athlete, I recover and get sore just like any other athlete. We’re not lying to anybody. People just don’t understand the art form of what we do. It’s a mental and physical grind. You can’t be a dolt in this industry. On the opposite end of that, you can be the smartest guy in the world and not understand what it is to have a presence on stage. Being a character, executing a live performance, understanding what it is to connect with a crowd and elicit a specific response at a specific time using moves and body language and emotions. What we do is very complex. It’s underappreciated. - Colby.
