People sometimes say that we will know feminism has done its job when half the CEOs are women. That’s not feminism; to quote Catharine MacKinnon, it’s liberalism applied to women. Feminism will have won not when a few women get an equal piece of the oppression pie, served up in our sister’s sweat, but when all dominating hierarchies - including economic ones - are dismantled.

Contemporary Art Week!
Valiant Guard
Chris Rahn for Magic: The Gathering, 2008

"Hey lets have a Contemporary Art Week here at Medieval POC"
"Ok so you’re gonna post contemporary black artists? cool"
"well only if they draw obvious influence from early art, oh and we’ll post literal Magic the Gathering art"
*jerk off motion* 

You know, I am actually amazed at how angry Contemporary Art Week has made this many people. I didn’t think it was possible to really be amazed anymore, but it’s probably the surprise factor still hanging on after all this time that keeps me going sometimes. I am genuinely baffled by this response, and how you came to this conclusion…or what you personally were expecting.
I chose to showcase one of the progressive frontiers of representation in one of the largest employers of contemporary fantasy artists working today, Wizards of the Coast.
I also want to take this opportunity to let my readers who are fantasy artists know that they WILL LOOK AT YOUR ART. 
Send it to  artdrop@wizards.com.
They offer careers in game design, marketing, finances and accounting, creative departments, software development, and much more. You can view a list of current job openings here.
There are more resources here for artists who are interested in creating works for Dungeons and Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, TOR Books, and more.
It’s not just important to have representation, it’s important to have people of color on creation teams, putting their stuff out there, and making a huge difference by and for fantasy fans of color.

If men’s kindnesses toward women were really only kindnesses, a man would be pleased if another man or woman offered these kindnesses to him. He would be pleased if another man or woman lit his cigarette or pulled out his chair for him. He would be pleased to derive his income, prestige, power and even his identity from his partner. He would take pride in another man’s or woman’s offer to walk him to his car at night. But in fact, “one of the very nasty things that can happen to a man is his being treated or seen as a woman, or womanlike.
(Frye 1983, p. 136).”

Yeah!  This reality hit me a few months ago when a teenage boy at work said to another teenage boy, “ladies first!” in order to insult him.  Chivalry is not about respect or kindness.

"They rap but they don’t know what true rap is."

"They play rock, but they don’t know how to rock.”

"They’re funny when they don’t talk about being ___."

Always with the unnecessary commentary.

"The thrill of appropriation lies in accessing the perceived authenticity… Transfer to a white body elevates the action. It’s no longer primitive because while nonwhite culture is assumed to be rooted in instinct, white culture is one of intent… White people clamoring to up their cred by appropriating nonwhite culture do so hoping to be rewarded for choices that are falsely seen as inherent in people of color." —Ayesha Siddiqi

I’m sorry about this. Nobody who’s of one ethnicity should ever be allowed to enjoy things created by people of other ethnicities. Nobody who isn’t Asian is allowed to use paper any more. Nobody who is not Native American may eat corn or potatoes. You only get to do something if it was created by the ethnicity which you belong to, otherwise you’re just appropriating it and can’t possibly understand it.
