Homeless People Read Mean Tweets About Themselves To End Stereotypes

When celebrities read mean tweets about themselves, it’s funny. When homeless people do it, it’s heartbreaking.

In a powerful PSA by Canadian advocacy group Raising the Roof, people who are dealing with homelessness read actual tweets written about those living without stable shelter. See all of the emotional reactions here. 

Watch the full video here. 

This is how I brought attention of me being cyber bullied. I publicly humiliated her and she deleted her post. Her account is in the process of being reported for harassing many people. This is how you stop a part of cyber bullying my friends. Give the asshole the attention they deserve. Seeing this, I have been bullied in the past but my friend Cameron helped me get through it. Without him I would have been still beating myself up about this post.

ANITA SARKEESIAN IS DOXING.

To those who don’t know, here is the definition of doxing.

Doxing (spelling variant Doxxing) is an abbreviation of document tracing, the Internet-based practice of researching and publishing personally identifiable information about an individual.The methods employed in pursuit of this information range from searching publicly available databases and social media websites like Facebook, to hacking, and social engineering. It is closely related to cyber-vigilantism, hacktivism, and cyber-bullying.

Doxing may be carried out to aid law enforcement,extortion, coercion, harassment, public shaming, and other forms of vigilante justice.[6]

Note it is NOT illegal to collect data but BLACKMAIL and posting information PUBLIC is.

I blurred the information out because its outright wrong to dox someone with their personal information. And remember, when we saw Anita was a PROFIT organization when she was accused of stealing from Tammy, she claimed she was being doxed. Not only was she accusing people looking up her corporate organization as doxxing but she has officially done it herself.

And of course, in the email sent to her, notice how the person asked her why she doesn’t address ThunderFoot and she calls him sexist?

DOXXING IS A CRIME SPECIFICALLY PUTTING SOMEONE’S IP ADDRESS UP FOR IDENTITY THEFT.

Your name is one thing but again, your IP address is your personal computer address.

This needs to be spread around. Anita thinks she’s above the law because she just registered for non-profit. No, if you do this, you have to blur out there personal information.

I’m very aware that this could be a troll account but the fact still stands that she doxxed the person with their name, email and IP Address.

EDIT: AND SHE’S DOXXING MORE THAN ONE PERSON. IF THESE PEOPLE WEREN’T IN A PUBLIC LOCATION, THEIR LIVES WOULD BE IN DANGER. Such a horrible human being.

But like… what the fuck is wrong with him? I have so many things to say I don’t know where to begin.. if you have a problem with fat girls, fuck you, if you have a problem with curvy girls, fuck you. If you honestly think that “stating an opinion in which you shouldnt be judged for” is when you’re trying to hurt, discriminate, make fun of and humiliate someone on a public platform.. fuck you. And of course she had to be black. There are skinny women out here with diabetes, can’t go up a flight of stairs without being winded, have high blood pressure, can be just as unhealthy as she is, but because she’s looking at confident as ever and so happy, this stupid, ignorant, dumbass has the nerve to run his mouth about it? I can’t why do people think that this shit is okay? Why do people make fun of overweight people? It’s so commonly accepted. Why don’t people with their rib cages, hip bones and collar bones protruding from their skin get made fun of? I fucking cant.

Twitter takes a step to get a little safer and stop harassment

Amid corporate turmoil and an uncertain future, Twitter is taking another step to protect its users from harassment, the latest in its series of attempts to balance free speech and personal safety. On Tuesday the company announced in a blog post that it launched a new initiative to keep users safe.

About two weeks ago one of my worst fears came true: my photo was posted on a fat shaming page. Cleverly-titled “Project Harpoon”, this Facebook page was dedicated to editing photos of fat women to make them appear slimmer, and then posting the edited version alongside the original photo. Their intent was supposedly to show what “could be” if these people lost weight; they wanted to show the hidden potential that all of these “misguided” women had. My photo was one of the first few to be uploaded, among the others were celebrities such as Meghan Trainor, Tess Holliday, and Melissa McCarthy.

When I first found out that this page had posted my photo, I was devastated. I spent hours scrolling through the comments, reading and re-reading all of the cruel things people had to say about me. Through the comments I learned that I have a pig nose, I’m large enough to have my own gravitational pull, and I’m plagued with an uncontrollable urge to eat all inanimate objects in my immediate vicinity (along with some other highlights I shared above).

Fat positivity has yet to be recognized as a legitimate movement, and I think part of that stems from people not seeing the abuse we go through on a day-to-day basis. Most people can agree on a very basic level that fat people should receive the same respect as a thin person, yet no one is doing anything to help us fight for our dignity. Even Facebook refused to be on our side, insisting after hundreds of people reported the page, that “Project Harpoon” wasn’t going against their community guidelines. Only after it blew up in the media, being reported by The Daily Mail, Cosmopolitan, Seventeen Magazine, and many more, did Facebook finally take it down.

It took me a while to decide to speak up about what happened to me, because at first I was terrified of being targeted again. However I realized that it’s important for me to talk about this. I want to show other fat people that I am okay. What I care most about is in setting a positive example for other fat people. Something like this might feel catastrophic; but it doesn’t have to be. I will not be shamed into silence. I will not hide.

I’m sharing this experience with you all for a number of reasons, but the most important is that I want to raise awareness about how serious fat shaming is. People need to realize that this “project” could have ended in eating disorders, self harm, and even suicide; not only for the people who had been targeted, but for onlookers who saw these comments being made about bodies similar to their own.

Fat people deserve respect. It is not fair for us to live in fear of this type of attack simply because we exist.

All right people, I’m gonna need you to stop and listen up for a second. Do you see that girl rocking her hot pink locks? That lovely lady would be my dear, loving, beautiful, kind, intelligent friend Sophia ( goddessundulate).

Now let me tell y'all a little something about Sophia. She is someone that I have always admired. She is never afraid of being herself. She is crazy confident and owns everything she does and I love her more than I could ever properly express because let me tell you, this woman is incredible.

That being said, being yourself is not okay to some people. Some people being this guy here who decided to take a picture of her at school with the caption “only at the Sni 😂” and post it on snapchat. This was obviously done in a mocking form, this was fully intended to be rude.

When he posted this on snapchat, someone, another lovely girl who doesn’t even know my dear Sophia, had the good mind to screenshot the picture and call out this sort of behavior publicly. This girl was not, however, the one who called him out personally.

Upon being exposed, this guy had the audacity to at the role of the victim, saying that he didn’t mean for Sophia or her friends to see it, that everyone judges so what’s the big deal, right? This is straight up bullying, blatant mockery and harassment. I have already blocked him on twitter which he took great pride for, but now I’m asking that you all (those of you with twitter) also report him for harassment, please. Get his ignorance removed from social media so that he may possibly understand that there are consequences for his actions.

Help out this amazing girl by standing up for her for being who she is. Signal boost the shit out of this and go send her some loving messages, please.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, it is very much appreciated.

So yesterday I found out that Randy Queen (artist of DarkChylde) filed a bunch of DMCA takedown notices to Tumblr to remove posts of his covers on this blog (the entire posts, not just the images).  I’ve also gotten messages from other users that he’s had their stuff removed too (redraws, etc that have been featured here).  Non-critical Tumblr posts of his art/covers and those praising his work appear to be unaffected.

I’m writing this to let other people who run sites that might have criticized his work ( thehawkeyeinitiative, bikiniarmorbattledamage, boobsdontworkthatway, repair-her-armor, comicartcorrections etc) know that he seems to use DMCA takedowns to remove pages that are critical of his work.  And, to be prepared that he might have Tumblr remove your posts without warning (there was no prior communication of any kind, or conventional requests for removal).

Also, if you’ve submitted redraws of his stuff to these sites, you might want to ask them to put them private for now (if he complains about a submission you’ve made, Tumblr will count it as a complaint against your account).

To date, Mr. Queen is the only artist who has taken this kind of action - other artists and publishers seem to understand Escher Girls & other similar sites are fair use and criticism, and that fan discussion, positive or negative, is important and helpful to their business. (In fact, the creators I’ve interacted with are either fans of EG, or expressed disagreement but know that it’s fan criticism.)

If anybody is curious about what his DarkChylde art looked like and why they were featured on this blog you can find them here.

(Don’t harass him on his Facebook or Tumblr by the way.  I’m not interested in having a feud with him, just letting people know what’s going on.)

Update: He has now filed a DMCA takedown with Tumblr to remove this post.  This post is still up on Escher Girls, but every single reblog of it has been removed.

I reblogged this some days ago, and yes, that blog disappeared, apparently in some attempt to silence the comments on that DMCA stunt.

And there was this -
https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20140804/11594828098/comic-artist-randy-queen-now-claims-post-about-his-abuse-copyright-to-stifle-criticism-is-defamatory.shtml

Not overly surprisingly, all that backfired nicely.

Yesterday, before these things happened, the notes on the blog were about to stagnate someplace around 750. Several hours could pass without much happening except for a handful of new likes. So all in all, so I thought, this story got a fair amount of attention, but it did not get viral.

But now -
Currently 1800+ notes and still counting.

The story makes its rounds outside tumblr too -

Starting a pseudo-reblog to make it harder to disappear the post and it’s information.

I’m tired of listening to men who talk about being ostracised and excluded when they were in school.

Who talk about how difficult it was fitting in and finding friends and feeling inadequate.

Who talk about being bullied and left with emotional scars from their experiences.

Then justify the wide spread bullying and harassment of online gaming culture as just something that needs to be accepted.

The vicious and targeted nature of bullying is something that never needs to be tolerated.

Just because you have found yourself in a system where you are now comfortable to act as bully instead of victim does not mean people should ever accept it.

Don’t cry to me about your tortured past if your present reality involves treating people just as badly.

I don’t want to hear your desperate origin story.
