On the Aisha DArama.
I think that after some research on what the fuck happened anyone would be neutral on the matter or be mostly on Aisha’s side
Since I’ve always liked Aisha and her art I’m totally on her side. That doesn’t mean I think she’s entirely on the right, though. She could have, after the Rai girl complained about the said white knights spaming her page, have asked for them to stop on a journal or so. BUT although doing that is clearly the “right” thing to do and would have prevented a lot of shit, I’m not sure entirely that I myself would have done that immediatly.
If it was happening with me, and I’m not gonna lie here, if a random girl posted a ridiculous comment on my page asking me how the heck I’m popular having such a shitty unnoriginal art, then well, call me a fucking bitch but I’d let my white knights do their thing all over her page. I mean REALLY? I don’t care if you were 13 at the time, that’s just a PLAIN STUPID move. Just stupid and uncalled for. And really, how do you expect that question to be answered anyway? The fuck?
Anyway. While I do think that it is comprehensible that Aisha didn’t move a finger at that time, there IS a limit. I’d just go to her page and see how much she’s been really bullied and decide if it was enough. Then I would do a journal like “Guys, ok you’ve had your fun, bu that’s enough. Pleas stop now, my lovely minions.” And be done with it. She’d have learned a lesson and shit and I’d be good to go.
But it wasn’t done and that is why I think Aisha has some wrongs on her side as well.
Now the tracing problem… Ok, most of the evidece people provided were just plain stupid and exagerated, but some were pretty convincing. Still, you know what? The girl has over 200 Deviations on her gallery. What if 3 or 4 were traced. For all you know she was posting a fun picture of someone she likes, like the Tobuscus one for instance, that’s a tribute, it’s not serious stuff, I don’t care if she traces a photo for fun and posts it on her gallery, it’s her problem, it’s not her fault she has a gazillion watchers and shit.
BUT, again, she has a bit of fault on this matter for not telling the truth. The thing is that some images are just too obviously traced. Of course she COULD just have an AMAZINGLY good eye for copying, but she has failed to prove so on the livestreams she said she’d do and all but didn’t, so I do believe that yes, some were traced. And I’m puting the wrongdoing not on her tracing, but on her not telling or not proving us wrong.
Now this Rai girl. I mean if I were to just compare her to Aisha she’d lose right there. Aisha is lovely and respecting with people, Rai girl, for all I read, is VERY rude. And then there’s this deal with she hacking Kas twice before all this, the fact that she’d been already nagging Aisha for a long time, her idiotic RP journals, her hipocrit ass, she just comes out as a huge attention seeker to me. Of course, I could be missinformed but that’s what I see with the information I got until now.
So overall this is too big of a drama over a little idiot child who doesn’t think before she types.
PS: I do think that it’s VERY mature of Aisha to lay low for now, since really anything she said right now would be fanning the fire. And it’s actually a very smart move on her part too, the trolls WILL eventually go away if you don’t feed them (like Rai girl was doing). But I’m just really sorry for her having to deal with this at all, it’s stupid really and she doesn’t deserve it. Rai on the other hand, asked for it. So if you eventually read this Brooke: I love your art, I love you as a person, I think you’re amazing and sweet and funny and I WISH I could do half the things you do and be half as adorable. Hang in there, love, and if you ever need anything from me, just ask and I’ll do my best.
