Stitch Does Stuff in May 2019

Stitch does stuff in may 2019

What will May bring my blog?

A lot of catching up.

I did not get a ton of work done in April and most of that was due to my tunnel vision before and after PCA 2019. If you haven’t read my write-up yet, please head on over and check it out!

Right now, almost everything I had planned to do for April is back on the table for May. That includes that month’s Audience Participation post, upcoming “What Fandom Racism Looks Like” posts, and that pesky podcast episode for Patreon.

I’m also going to be using my free time to record narration for my PCA 2019 PowerPoint as well as a WFRLL piece on k-pop fandom’s antiblackness. Both will be Patreon-first – with the PowerPoint open for all levels and the WFRLL piece having snippets at the $1 level and a final/finished draft at the $3 level.

I’m still trying to catch up with email as well – sending and replying to them – so if you haven’t heard from me in a while, you will in May. I have a list and everything.

One reason my time will be tight in May is that I’m two days into a new job.  (Thanks, Dionysus!)

I don’t know what the rest of the month will bring, and I live in a state that can fire you for anything, but it’s a job that’s pretty much right up my alley and will allow me to stretch my writing and marketing muscles. We’ll see how it goes and I’ll definitely figure out a way to balance my work-life-writing balance as I get more comfortable with the job and used to waking up at 6am.

But I’m happy right now and I’m going to do my best to be financially stable and get all my writing done.

Now that the goopy stuff is out and about: here’s what’s on the menu for May.

Fair warning, a lot of these are well… leftovers.

Respectability Politics & Black Heroes

Respectability politics is one aspect of Black media that I can’t stand. It portrays some Black people as too dirty/hood/poor/gross to support and frames Black humanity as conditional upon on how “good” we are. Respectability politics in Black superhero media and in how we talk about these heroes in fandom/critic circles is especially infuriating. I think I need to scream about it.

    I totally forgot because I’m pedigree dumbass, so let me ask again.

    If I recall I promised to give you some perspectives of my personal experiences that was the hell that’s the Overwatch fandom. Would you like them soon or is this month also packed? If so, when would you like them by?

    Keep being awesome love ❤
