Lists with This Book. Sep 29, Elizabeth A rated it it was amazing Shelves: Holy smokes, but how have I not read this before? Are you old enough to remember zines? Ah, the good old days of subversive zines.
That I missed reading this when I was younger is a pity. If you are looking for fine art and colored illustrations look elsewhere. If you are a person who still thinks that girls are made of sugar and spice and all things nice, what rock The Complete Collection combines Hothead Paisan and Revenge of Hothead Paisan with new strips in a single volume for the first time.
If you are a person who pqisan thinks that girls are made of sugar and spice and all things nice, what rock have you been living under? This feminist, queer positive graphic novel, is comprised of black and white comic strips, with sketchy art, and a no-holds-barred-take-no-prisoners attitude, and is as fab and relevant today as when it was first published.
As for Chicken, who does not love a cat who does yoga? I have thoroughly enjoyed my travels to this fantasy world where sexists and homophones get what’s coming to them. Why was this not made into a movie again? View all 4 comments.
Jan 25, Nico rated it it was amazing Shelves: Until we have a queer feminist militia, there’s Hothead Paisan. So much cheaper than a course in anger management, so much less time-consuming than prison. I keep mine next to my machete collection. Jan 19, J. Rogue rated it did not like it Shelves: What about the MTFs? Oh, they’re very angry. It started out with, “We knew you were such a supporter of the transgender community b Now, don’t get me wrong, there are things I like d about Hothead Paisan, but I just can’t forgive Diane DiMassa’a transphobia: It started out with, “We knew you were such a supporter of the transgender community because you drew [the ambiguously gendered Hothead character] Daphne, and how could you let this happen?
Then it turned into the hothexd But, as Susan has explained to me, Michigan’s official policy is that Michigan is a space for women-born women who have experienced what it’s like to grow up female in our patriarchal society.
And just by saying that, they recognize that there are different types of women. Now–should I say paiean on the record? It’s just fucking typical that a man-born lesbian can’t get the concept of not being allowed somewhere. I must be allowed in there. Apr 25, Dorian rated it it was ok.
Quite cathartic in many ways, and fun to read. DiMassa’s jothead of trans people leaves a lot to be desired and is particularly disappointing in light of how liberating this comic can be. Mis or ungendering trans people is really not supportive, and framing transition as easy or something you do because you don’t like your gender roles is dangerously false and misleading.
The fact that only FTM’s were really represented openly is recreating an unfortunate tendency in feminist and queer literat Quite cathartic in pzisan ways, and fun to read. The fact that only FTM’s were really represented openly is recreating an unfortunate tendency in feminist and queer literature. Its really a shame, since in all other respects, this is a brilliantly funny critique of society from the perspective of the marginalized. It could have done without adding to the marginalization of others.
Apr 18, Thomas rated it really liked it Shelves: Okay, so apparently I’m not supposed to like Hothead Paisan, partially because Diane DiMassa is reported to be transphobic.
I guess I can see that, plus the whole hating men and wanting to kill paosan thing. I’m not saying I approve.
I’m just saying I laughed. But then, I’m a bad person. May 18, Danielle rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Cuz it’s not just about hating men, it’s about hating people! Jan 19, Jenny rated it liked it Recommended to Jenny by: First few dozen hothewd of Hothead Paison: I thought, “Why would my friend, Red, who is super sweet, non-violent, and into meditation suggest this book to me? This is totally not her! Hothead and her vigilante antics aren’t the real story or purpose behind the book.
It’s really about pisan the fucked up things that are happening in this world and still being able to First few dozen pages of Hothead Paison: It’s really about recognizing the fucked up things that are happening in this world and still being able to find the love. To temper the violence, DiMassa characterizes Hothead as immature and impulsive, like a child, unable to channel her frustration in any other way.
And Hothead’s best friends are her biggest critics.
Hothead Paisan: Homicidal Lesbian Terrorist by Diane DiMassa
Who among us doesn’t feel like Hothead some days? When you see queers and women killed, shoved aside, belittled, and held up to paiszn standards, who doesn’t feel like locking up our conscience, downing a pot of coffee, and throwing a few grenades at some douchebags?
Aug 03, Sandy rated it really liked it Shelves: Every enraged lesbian feminist and everything she has ever wanted to do, is in here. She wacks off male members and is surprisingly metaphysically aware she contemplates existence a lot for a cartoon. This is no ‘Dykes to Watch Out For’. This is fantastically deranged. Sep 28, Susan rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This helped me get through tough situations in and again in !
You don’t have to be gay to read and love Hothead Paisan.
You just have to be aware. Feb 10, Sandy rated it it was ok Shelves: This is a good book for when you’re pausan one of those man-hatin’ days. Unfortunately, I wasn’t having one of them and it got old. Every issue’s plot basically boils down to Hothead drinks coffee, Hothead goes out on the town, man says something stupid, Hothead responds in one of three ways: I like a good satire as hothaed as the next person but this was just bad satire. The only reason it gets 2 stars is because her sidekick, Chicken the cat, is fu This is a good book for when you’re having one of those man-hatin’ days.
The only reason it gets 2 stars is because her sidekick, Chicken the cat, is funny. I actually debated between 2 and 3 stars just because of Chicken.
But this isn’t entitled Chicken Paisan so I went with 2. Pisan 15, Jonah rated it did not like it Shelves: I couldn’t stand the misandry. I bought this book because I loved Dykes to Htohead Out For, and I looked for books using the keywords “lesbian comic,” and this turned up, and I had a gift certificate, so I bought it.
Hothead Paisan Series by Diane DiMassa
While this book does have its good points, and while the author or main character certainly mellows out by the end Dec 21, Leigh Anna rated it it was amazing. Homicidal Lesbian Terrorist strikes!
It’s a wonderful, at times surrealist, graphic novel that provides catharsis for all those times you just wanted to find that serial rapist you’ve been reading about in the news and exact painful bloody revenge. But in spite of the graphic violence, Hothead and her vengeful antics aren’t the real story or purpose behind the book.
The real book is about seeing the things that are happening and still finding peace and love. Nov 25, Wolverina rated it hotehad was amazing Shelves:
