if what you’ve been craving is women’s sports manga, may i recommend

Crimson Hero by Mitsuba Takanashi: Volleyball manga about high school student Nobara Sumiyoshi, who has serious talent and ambition for the sport - but is stuck in a role where she is being pushed and groomed for nothing more than inheriting her family’s restaurant for the rich. Transferring to an entire new school to go after her dreams of volleyball, Nobara ends up battling her mother - among many other challenges - for her love of the sport.

Teppu by Ohta Moare: Women’s MMA manga. Ishidou Natsuo is a prodigy at anything she does - sports, academics, and seemingly even martial arts, nothing challenges her, and with her height, she even loms over everyone else in the school. Until one day she runs into a Yuzuko Mawatori, a shorter fellow student with thick eyebrows who’s trying to recruit people into the school’s MMA club, and, challenging her to a spar, finally finds one thing in life that challenges her… and decides to dedicate herself to MMA in chase of that challenge, and for an opportunity to “wipe that smile off her face”. Highly character focused manga with a deep knowledge and respect of the sport. Imagine if the antagonist in a sports manga was now the protagonist.

Tetsuwan Girl by Tsutomu Takahashi: Historically set women’s baseball manga. In 1949, a barmaid, Tome Kano, lost everything in the war, and hasn’t had much direction in her life since. When a wealthy man, Katsuya Ranzaki, enters her life, things take a new, bold turn for her - and she ends up getting sucked rapidly into the world of women’s baseball. High drama and high emotions set among gorgeous art as Tome struggles and sweats and bleeds to finally have a “real life”.

Rock was bused to schools in predominately white neighborhoods of Brooklyn, where he endured bullying and beatings from white students. As he got older, the bullying became worse and Rock’s parents pulled him out of James Madison High School. He decided to drop out of high school altogether and later received a GED.

Just a reminder: Racism is not restricted to the South and it never was.

A wise black man once told me “that whites in the south like niggas in particular, not in general, and whites in the north like niggas in general, not in particular.”

my great grandma used to say that too^

Passages in many of these pieces that essentially boil down to “once I realized I wasn’t entitled to women, I got one, and that saved me” merely entrench the notion that women are prizes for straight men to be won, if only they figure out the magic combination to get in a lady’s pants.

That’s not a message which in any way supports women’s humanity and agency. It still treats us like a sex class. Like prizes. Like property.
