  • "What makes a comic “Jewish”? Is it the fact that it was created by a Jewish writer and/or artist? Well, that doesn’t seem fair, does it? Because if you limit it to Jewish comics creators, you leave out so many talented non-Jewish comics creators, like Carl Barks or Alan Moore (Google them). Hmm. But what about a comic that features Jewish characters? Well…I dunno. Does that make the comic book itself somehow “Jewish”?"
  • "Of course I look the way I do — Asians being wimpily tiny, & obviously veganism has only exacerbated my genetic tendency to be undernourished & have stunted growth. Poor me. I should eat a steak or two ASAP. Vegans of color: are there ways in which you have seen reactions to your veganism be shaped by racial assumptions about your weight & health? "
  • "Well, when we believe in peace, there is simply no room for complacency. The murders of James Byrd, Matthew Shepard, Jorge Steven Lopez, Marcelo Lucero, Luis Ramirez and countless others who were victims of violent "hate crimes" should be completely unacceptable to every human being; because we're all human beings. It's up to us to change the paradigm."
