Trans Male Representation in the Media


Recently there has been a lot of talk about Aydian Dowling. He’s in competition run by Men’s Health Magazine, where one of their readers could become their next cover model; someone who has leadership, has helped their community, and exemplifies the fitness goals of the magazine. Aydian has done all those, and then some. Currently he’s way ahead in the magazines public voting poll and it seems like he’s going to win easily. So why is this news outside of the fitness geek circle?

Talking Squirrel Girl With Ryan North


Originally posted to The Mary Sue

When Squirrel Girl, aka Doreen Green, first appeared it was 1991 and she was a fourteen-year-old mutant living in LA. Donning a squirrel suit she tried to impress Iron Man, her favorite hero, and failed badly. Then Dr. Doom attacked and she ended up saving Iron Man’s life fighting alongside Monkey Joe, her first squirrel sidekick, surprising both Iron Man and Dr. Doom in the process. After appearing again in 1992, Squirrel Girl promptly vanished for about decade but gained a cult following in those lost years. She reappeared again in 2005, this time in New York and alongside the Great Lakes Avengers.
