Alli doesn’t ship Clew.

On a side note, it’s been fun to watch the evolution of the artist’s technique through these comics.

Anonymous said: sexism? can you elaborate bc i'm super curious

Hmm, I’m trying to remember what I was talking about what I said that - I think it was something about the gendered way that lady characters on Degrassi suffer? Like, Craig would have a plot about his abusive father, which isn’t about Craig’s gender, but Manny’s plots in Venus, which also center on her troubled relationship with her father, are about her gender - she’s called a “slut”, an “attention whore”, and when she acts out to deal with her hurt feelings, she’s unknowingly made the star of child pornography. Jimmy is broken by a traumatic event in a way that isn’t about his gender (getting shot) but Darcy is broken by a traumatic event that is about her gender (sexual assault). Stuff like that. It was a passing thought, mostly wrapped up in how angry I get when poor Manny has to beg in front of Emma at the end of Venus, so I hope it makes sense.

Anonymous said: hi i was looking through your cam tag and came across this "he could just as easily call his mom or talk to Ms. Sauve as he could get on the roof" i agree that just by virtue of suffering from a mental illness it doesn't absolve you of any wrongdoings, but to say that he could easily reach out to someone is kind of gross and ableist. i suffer from both anxiety and depression and see a lot myself in cam and it is so much harder to ask for help than people think. don't blame cam blame the disease.

Yeah, especially in hindsight, that was a pretty flippant thing to say about Cam, knowing now what we do about the entire structure and purpose of his character. So I’m sorry - I know that I speak more directly about Degrassi characters and their behaviors than I would normally because they are fictional but that can be a problem, knowing how strongly people identify with these characters and their plots.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts though. It is difficult for people to reach out for help, especially in under-resourced communities where that help may not even exist. Cam may have had other options and it’s easy for me to wax on about what I would’ve liked to see instead but he was a fictional character in a pretty cozy fictional world - it simply doesn’t compare to what many people are dealing with, every day.

I don’t know which post you are referring to but, if you’d like, send me the link and I’ll remove it.

This is awesome! I love the positivity that Andrea Lewis has been putting out into the world lately. So admirable, so cool, an unfortunately so totally necessary in a world that tells girls and especially young women of color (and especially young black women) that they shouldn’t be happy.

The title pretty much sums up everything you need to know. I’m posting a link to the latest essay because it’s definitely influenced GDL and y’all might enjoy it!
