I drew this forever ago and then forgot about it. I had meant to do a whole series of sneksualities ….. maybe one day. Happy pride! 

Some offense, but some of y'all need to revisit the idea of basic manners, just sayin.

It’s a hell of a responsibility to be yourself. It’s much easier to be somebody else or nobody at all.

You’ve probably heard of depression meals, but have you considered ADHD meals:

  • Literally inhaling everything in your fridge when your meds wear off and you realize you haven’t eaten all day
  • Can’t decide what to eat so you just sit there hungry for like an hour
  • Alternatively, can’t decide what to eat so you snack on everything
  • An entire family-size bag of chips that you absentmindedly finished while watching tv (bonus points if you barely even remember eating them)
  • Frozen vegetables because fresh ones go bad before you can get around to using them
  • Leftover takeout because you ordered it last night but had so many snacks while waiting that you were too full to eat it when it showed up
  • Anything microwaveable 
  • Eating leftovers cold right in front of the fridge because too much executive dysfunction to heat them up
  • Too much executive dysfunction to combine your ingredients into the meal you were planning to make so you just eat them individually
  • “This doesn’t even taste good but I need to finish it anyway, I committed to this snack”
  • Trail mix and other super calorie dense food when you’re on your meds and can’t stomach a meal
  • Ice cream directly out of the container at 2 am

Why does this feel like a tag yourself. I’m “Anything microwaveable”

hello there i am  “This doesn’t even taste good but I need to finish it anyway, I committed to this snack”

Would you like to buy an ice cream?

Okay, so it’s even the small things. The way she eats the ice cream. She just eats it. No coy lick or self-conscious taste. There’s no male gaze here. No oral/sexual pleasure of the viewer. Just she eats the ice cream and it’s the kind of sloppy big bite of someone who is not self-conscious of eating, who hasn’t been trained from birth to think about how she looks as she does everything, even eating. Hasn’t spent her life being told that her purpose is in being attractive, even as she does a vital daily thing like eating. Doesn’t have a voice in her head saying, oh but ice cream, it’s kind of fatty, and what will people think.

She’s just, wow, this thing is delicious, I think it’s great, the person who makes it deserves to be told how great their skill is. How great their actions that have lead to this product are. Even in this she demonstrates valuing people by their actions and abilities and choices and who they are, not what they look like.

Fuck. This is agency. And the fact that is so rare and startling and obvious to me, the fact that Diana Prince eating ice cream moves me so much is So Terrible and makes me despair for our civilization and (nearly) all media produced before this.

And during the shot when she takes the first bite, Steve is reaching his arm out to pay the ice cream seller. That movement is much bigger and more eye-catching than Diana eating the ice cream. This scene normalizes females eating on screen (which shouldn’t have fucking been a problem in the first place), through both subverting the erotic eating trope and allowing women to eat and enjoy whatever they want without feeling self-conscious. Kudos to Patty Jenkins.

Yes! Excellent point!

And even more, Steve isn’t looking at Diana as she eats. A big part of the male gaze is that the default POV of films is generally that of the straight, white, male viewer. And generally Steve would be the stand in for that default gaze, but he doesn’t even look at her! He doesn’t buy it for her so he can watch. And he doesn’t even pull some Nice Guy bullshit like, I did something nice for you now do something nice for me, even as a vague joke or subtext. He isn’t trying to  get anything out it. He just thinks she’s probably never had it and might enjoy it. It’s about her enjoyment, not his. Despite everything trying to tell us that women feed appetites but aren’t meant to have any of their own.

Apparently I am never going to get over Diana Prince eating ice cream.

Yes, all this. But I’d like to mention that IN ADDITION to that, there’s also the overt humor of the moment that could have been gross too but wasn’t.

The ice cream seller offers her the ice cream but Diana is not familiar with the concept of ‘goods for money’ so they could have made a big joke about it with Steve basically giving her an immediate ‘lesson’ about how she can’t just TAKE the ice cream and how you’re supposed to pay for it.

That’s basically how introducing a character from an Utopian society to a capitalist world always works. And that’s always the joke ‘oh look how silly and uneducated this person is, doesn’t even know they have to pay for stuff!’.

But here though Diana does take the ice cream without planning to pay (because yes, she doesn’t know that she’s supposed to) Steve doesn’t make it into a ‘big deal’, he just reaches over and pays.

And so the scene flawlessly skips over any need to publicly shame or embarrass Diana and we can just focus on how adorable Diana is when eating ice cream for the first time in her life.

And I really truly appreciate that a lot.


Bisexuals in committed monogamous relationships have not chosen a “side,” they have chosen a person.

Thank you and have a blessed day.

If you're a writer and you see this post, stop what you're doing.




Just one sentence. Stop blogging for one minute and write a single sentence. It could be dialogue, it could be a nice description of scenery, it could be a metaphor, I don’t care. The point is, do it. Then, when you finish, you can get back to blogging.

If this gets viral, you might just have your novel finished by next Tuesday.

FINE. I did the thing.

You. You, there. Go do the thing.
