A quick editorial cartoon about the intersection of self-pity, entitlement, rape, territoriality, misogyny and fear of women. You see it all over the place online in the form of Men’s Rights Activists (of whom there are a few reasonable non-misogynists), Men Going Their Own Way, Pick Up Artists, and dudes touting the “Red Pill”, because The Matrix is a good movie. Look any of these up if you have the stomach for it. These are extreme examples, but watered-down forms of these ideas are everywhere.
In lurking their blogs and youtube channels for a while, I’ve noticed that beyond the standard patriarchal chauvinism there is this deep fear of women - what they will do to me, how they will reject me, how they will use me, how they are changing society in a way that does not favor me, how they are making men into something I don’t like, how they are making themselves into something I don’t like, that they won’t give me what I want, and that they won’t give me what I think is rightfully mine. This goes beyond fear of feminism- this is fear of women at its purest. And that, to quote a puppet, leads to anger and hate. It’s sad.
I am a feminist. I think there’s enough ice cream to go around, but it does mean those of us with 3 scoops might have to give one or two up. Also, The Matrix is a fun movie but probably not anything you should be basing a philosophy on.
This was my rough and first concept storyboard design for my first animated short.
You can check out the animatic and completed animation here!
Here’s a revised version, still so much that could have been done.. I’m proud of this for my first 2D/3D animation!
please take 30 seconds to watch… :D
This is Abe’s Outhouse my first fully loaded animation.
30 seconds with 2D/3D animation for our final project.
with a day to spare some extra editing should go in maybe… I’ll post the link soon
It’s a lot of waiting… and staying up late. more waiting and a lot of touching up.
