I don’t watch either of these shows I’m afraid. I am excited towards Brooklyn nine nine though! and try some new stuff too.
We’re thinking about a Halloween video! Hope we’ll have time for it cause we’re moving to LA soon (excite!) Busy time.
he is though
"That’s your answer to everything"
I leave my Anonymous ask on because i’m fully aware of the fact some people are more comfortable asking questions or saying certain things without being tracked. That’s cool. But keep in mind that some questions or statements I might not want to publish because they may be too personal or too triggery. And since the only way to answer an anonymous ask is to publish it, it’ll stay unanswered. So I humbly request: when you want to ask me something personal, please try doing it from your own account! I promise I won’t publish it and will answer privately and quickly. (you can always remind me that just in case!)

Welp I’ve worked out, had Indian food for lunch, watched 22 Jump street, brainstormed some ideas for vids with hubby, played the ukulele, twas a good day.

Hesitant awkward silence
Really though If Hollywood had been asked about including female protagonists as much as I’ve been asked about adding fanboys in my animations we wouldn’t have a problem by now
Anonymous said: hey Leigh, have you ever considered adding some guys into the Fangirl's animations? Like, guys in the Fangirls club thingy? I know it says fangirls, but a lot of guys have the same "Fangirl" attitude and I think it would be cool if you represented that! But, even if you don't, I really love all your work! Especially the one about spoilers that just came out! AH It was great! :D
I’ve been asked about the subject of fanboys in my videos before
Bottom line: Fanboys and Male geeks get LOADS of attention in the media as not only consumers, but characters. The fanboy was represented and explored in tons of cases, some of them better, some of them worse, when female fans did not, to say the least.
So while I’ve thought about it, for now I still feel obligated to share a small spot in the edge of the internet that is my channel for female fans. There’s so much more to explore and talk about.
I’m not a misandrist, but a few quick questions:
If men can’t even make their own sandwiches, why are they allowed to make bills in congress?
If men can’t control their own sexual urges, why are they allowed to control nations?
If a woman’s legs/shoulders are enough to distract a man, how can we trust them to stay focused on things like open heart surgery or judging a murder trial?
Again not a misandrist, some of my best friends are guys and i’m even dating one.
"The point of culture is to create and to be valued in some capacity by an audience, if the culture continues to harm the audience that it was created off the backs of and for, then it isn’t worth a damn whether people think its critically or monetarily or influentially valuable because none of those things are worth more than that audience."
