Sally Forth Comic Con: They Have Always Been There

Posted in Uncategorized by cesco7 on July 21, 2018

There have always been strong, inspiring female heroes in real life. They just have always been criminally underrepresented in films, comics, and TV. But that is changing and that is crucial. Because what pop culture does best is help us dream, and when you see someone like yourself in a graphic novel, someone who shares your concerns in a movie, someone like you overcoming obstacles in a series, you are encouraged to think, “I can do this.” “I have this.” And most important of all, “I am not alone.”

    As someone who is tongue-tied meeting those who mean a lot to me, I love how articulate she is, yet still thinking she’s weird. It gives me hope that I’ll be able to express myself when meeting someone, and is such an important message. To be more succinct…Nailed it!

    I’m glad she didn’t have to submerge herself into “manager mode” to deal with the meeting. Ted won’t be able to get any sleep tonight, she’ll be up to all hours playing the air guitar.
