Your objectification of women and demeaning their suicides to the level of horrific entertainment is absolutely appalling and disgusting. This is a trope that you have a responsibility of ENDING, NOT PERPETUATING. There is nothing cool or trendy about suicide or mental disorders, nor should an artist be REWARDED for condoning those messages. This is particularly alarming during the week of Suicide Awareness.

This isn't about saying one can't hold a contest. Just consider what kind of message you're sending in creating a contest around suicide. No, we do not know the context given, but its relevance is trivial when the guidelines highlight and even sexualize suicide. And artists shouldn't have to stoop to such a demeaning level to please a comic industry with some sick game.
