I found this video via Diana McQueen on Google+:
I wonder if we had more female writers if we’d see a “mystical erection” trope, where something bad/awe-inspiring happens every time the male character in question ejaculates. Oglaf is totally going there. (Oglaf _is_ written by a woman after all…)
But srsly. Why do writers feel compelled to impregnate female characters willy nilly with terrible things? It’s uncomfortable for me as a female viewer, and it helps perpetuate “pregnancy as punishment” and “pregnancy is no biggie” attitudes.
