This post is work-safe, if you're self-employed

From IRC, just now:


reinder: http://comics212.net/2007/04/19/afraid-of-cock/
M___ is not going to follow that link from a work PC
M___: In fact I think I'll go crash the server to corrupt the logs just in case
reinder :As far as I've read it, it's safe for work
reinder: Except if you're afraid of cock, I guess.
M___: See, that word ... it's not safe for work
M___: I think you're confused because of being self-employed

He's got a point. I make a point of taking full advantage of my self-employed-ness: I may be permanently stressed-out and one month away from eviction, but at least I can set my own hours and I can read the word "cock" on a computer I also work on.

The article with the word "cock" in it is a hilarious look at cock, specifically, cock appearing in an Alex Ross-painted cover sollicitation for Justice Society of America # 7 and the fanboys' reaction to it.


First and foremost, there's a reason that "Comics Should Be Good" isn't linked from my site, and the above is a good indicator of why. Second, that's what "Queer Fear" is, in case you were wondering. Brian and his 'buddy' Jake are 'creeped out' by a bulge in another guy's pants (artistic or otherwise). The idea that an artist chose to give a character an impressively-rendered package is actually frightening to these fellas, and the idea that his model might've had a good-sized package in real life? And Alex Ross decided NOT to neuterhim for some insane reason? Equally as creepy.

Needless to say, I'm pro-cock. Even as a kid, I found it vaguely annoying that so many comic characters had nothing whatsoever in their pants. It wasn't a showstopper of a flaw, but it did make many characters look more than a bit freaky. And in today's more adult-oriented comics culture, there's clearly been a double standard for some time. Read the article, which is lovingly backed up by reference pictures of male underwear models. Who have cocks. Cock-cock-cockkity-cock cocks. (Via Journalista!)
