Hi! I have an Instagram myself, and although I practice an (extremely stringent) "if-you-steal-art-I-unfollow" policy, I know that doesn't really help the stealing problem--one follower lost is probably nothing to these accounts thriving off of stolen work. Instagram doesn't seem to have an option (trust me, I've looked) for stealing other people's content. How can I report someone for taking art? (Gosh, you have no idea how much those people tick. me. off.) Thanks!

Knowing that people like you exist is honestly the ONLY thing some days that keeps me from leaving this fandom and all its art theft issues. Bless you, my comrade <3 <3 <3

3 Things You Can Do To Fight Art Theft:

1. Comment (without harassing). Many art thieves try to pretend they “don’t know” who the artist is, or that they “don’t know” reposting isn’t allowed (even when it’s written right on the image). Calling them out by posting a link to the original, tagging the artist, or even simply stating ‘this belongs to [ARTIST] and they don’t allow reposts’ is sometimes enough to get an art thief to delete a repost (to avoid copyright strikes). 

2. Link the artist. Send us a link so that we can report the art as stolen. You can also make a notifying callout post (again, careful not to harass) if it’s an account that steals from a lot of artists. However, dealing with tons of people treating you and your art like dirt can get really stressful (I know it’s ruined my day more than once), so sometimes you can also…

3. …Report “on behalf of the owner”. If you know an artist absolutely doesn’t allow reposts (for example, me), you can save them tons of time and stress by filling out a copyright claim on their behalf. All you need is a link to the original (most of my stuff is in my /tagged/my-stuff tag), and to tick the box that says you’re ‘authorized to report on behalf of the copyright owner’ (actual wording varies from site to site). When making a report, it’s absolutely vital that you know for sure the image was reposted without permission. I never give permission to repost (especially on Insta, Pinterest, WeHeartIt, etc.), so any of my art you see there is stolen, and you can report it. Buttons to look for include “report”, “this doesn’t belong on ____”, “this violates my intellectual copyright/terms of service”, and sometimes “inappropriate content”.

One advantage that art thieves have over artists is that there’s only so much a single artist can report (or emotionally handle) in a single day. Art thieves take advantage of that to get away with stealing. But if we all band together, we can take stolen posts down, get repeat offenders’ accounts deleted, and make this fandom a happier, fairer place to be.

Btw, thank you SO much to my followers who always have my back, and who I always see doing these 3 things above. You guys are ANGELS and you don’t know how many times a message like this, or a comment defending my art, etc. has kept me from jumping ship (and just not posting my art online anymore). You guys are so awesome, and I’m so grateful for each and every one of you. <3 <3

i don't think i'm being childish, sometimes you have to choose in my opinion. that's all. how can one be a fan of both a victim and a man partially responsible for her death? a man who brags about how meaningless her death was?

Where have I stated that I was a “fan” of Charles Manson or of anyone involved in the murders? I’m interested in the case, that’s all, this is a true crime blog, it’s only normal that I will post about the case or the people involved, as for reblogging photos of Sharon Tate, it wasn’t done with malice, sometimes I reblog non true crime related things, like gifs from a movie I like or pictures from an actress I admire, if you have a problem with that you can just click unfollow.

anonymous asked:

As someone who loves Gradence (and Grindence) *because* the relationship dynamics are fucked up, honestly, I don't think anyone would mind if you had a note on your about/askbox saying no Gradence please because you're not into it. Generally the only thing shippers object to is people saying we're doing something *wrong* by writing or reading about unhealthy relationships, or saying we shouldn't ship them ever - which is why you got the responses you did after reblogging that post.

okay,,,, but there’s a difference. what i have constantly said i have a problem with is when people ignore the abusive component and that it’s problematic or make up an original gr@ves that we don’t even know bc they aesthetically ship the actors. people still don’t have the right to jump down my throat and tell me i’m wrong to be triggered by the relationship and honestly, it’s my blog my opinion they can unfollow me, not send asks that have repeatedly been triggering when i have said not to do that. i only care about credence here, but everyone else keeps pressuring me to talk about it, either bc they finally found another anti or bc they want me to stop being anti. i don’t care why people got mad, it’s still my blog and my space and i dictate what’s here. this was fun for a while, but now people ONLY care about what i have to say about gr*dence, either for or against, instead of talking to me about credence, like it used to be and like i preferred it. it was my one gr*dence free space, which was cool bc i wasn’t actively anti with anyone and i got to talk about credence. so ultimately it’s gr*dence people who made it this way bc they want me to write for them or bc they want me to talk about it and???? that’s also why i don’t answer as many asks, because they’re all gr*dence and i did and do try really hard to keep ships off here. but my wishes constantly get disrespected and i myself have been disrespected multiple times for saying just “hey yeah i don’t like talking about it bc it triggers me” i had a really horrible relationship that started just like that and progressed to repeated physical abuse and sexual assault on repeated occasions, as well as being stalked after it was “over” and i constantly feel like that isn’t “justification” enough for people to not like something which is making me increasingly upset. so long story short, i don’t care that i made people mad at this point because i am constantly getting disrespected and hurt because of the damn thing, so i am speaking up and hopefully that will translate to less gr*dence in my inbox, because apparently even having it on the ask wasn’t enough. i am not going off at you specifically, though, babe, and i do appreciate your input i just,,, i am really tired

2017 so I’m gonna say it again!

You are allowed to unfollow me if you dont like my content or me as a person!

I will not get mad at you!

I will not ask you why you unfollowed! I won’t pressure you for an answer! I don’t even check my follower numbers that often or pay attention to when I gain or lose and I CERTAINLY don’t check to see who left! 

I don’t take it personally!

I want you to have the best experience for YOU!  

If I’m an annoyance or a problem for you, I encourage you to unfollow!

honestly the amount of people I have seen defending pewdiepie over that anti-semitic video and/or calling the people who are upset over this “triggered cry babies” is fucking disgusting and sad. He paid those guys to hold up a “death to all jews” sign, and then afterwards immediately tries to deflect the blame from himself by saying “i didn’t think they would actually do it!”. and with all the shit going on right now with trump’s presidency and the neo nazis/alt right side going out heavily armed to “campaign” against the Jewish population in Montana, you actually have the fucking nerve and audacity to say that the people who are upset over this are cry babies? what the fuck is wrong with people? I know that the majority of you guys who follow me (and my mutuals) are good people, but if there are any of you out there who honestly don’t see a problem with this or are defending him, then do me a favor and unfollow me. even better, block me.

So on twitter tons of people confirmed that Brendon and Dallon were both physically touched/attacked and I could fucking lose it right now.

Brendon Urie, Dallon Weekes, Kenny Harris, Dan Palwovich, even Zack Hall. These are just guys doing what they love. They’re in Australia to bring music to people. What the actual fuck are some people’s problems. Whether the people who touched them were real fans or not, I’m going to go off at this whole fan base.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ME UNFOLLOW ME AND GET OFF MY BLOG

Panic! at the Disco is an amazing band. They don’t have to do what they do. They don’t have to do meet and greets. They don’t have to do concerts. But they do. They still make music after so much shit has happened. And every time someone fucks it up, it leaves a bad experience with them. Bad experiences stick with people much more than good ones. In their minds, that’s what they first think of when they think of fans.

Brendon has anxiety. Takes medication for it. I’ve heard of Dallon having it as well, though it’s not been confirmed. As someone who suffers from bad anxiety, walking off a plane right into a crowd of fans would already make me tense. But then to have the people disobey and defy Zack and start touching and prodding….like??? Who the fuck raised these people. If I hear about another stunt like this in any other city I swear to god. This is not okay. Treat Panic! (and any singer, actor or celebrity) like people and do not invade their space or privacy.

I can tell you with good faith (thanks to being personal friends with a close friend of Brendon’s) that one of the reasons they decided not to do meet and greets this year was because some of the fan interactions of the last tour left the band uncomfortable. Speaking of-

If you meet this band, treat Dallon, Kenny and Dan with respect. They are part of the band whether you like it or not. Do not bring up old band members. Do not ask for a picture with only Brendon. That is so incredibly disprespectful.

As fans, we have a voice that they hear, the good and the bad. Be mature about everything and do not treat them as anything but humans who want to have a good, peaceful time.

Finn rant

Okay, here goes. I wanted to take the time to summarize everything that I hate about the Star Wars fandom and it’s treatment of Finn. This is all stuff that has annoyed and in some cases offended me that I’ve had to look at for well over  a year since joining this fandom. This is also everything that I’ve felt like I had to keep my mouth shut about because it seems like most people in the Star Wars fandom have no problem whatsoever with.

If you disagree with me, that’s great, and feel free to message me why. If you feel offended, then unfollow me, because that’s what I’ve been trying to do for over a year.

SEXIST ONE-SHOT?

So the other day, a dear friend of mine told me that the finnreyfridays one-shot we were working on was sexist. Like actually sexist. Do you know why they told me it was sexist? Allow me to answer the question for you.



They told me it was sexist because the plot included Finn saving Rey. That’s why. I didn’t turn Rey into a helpless damsel-in-distress, I didn’t write Rey as a slutty scavenger who flirts with every guy she sees.


I wrote Rey as a skilled Jedi who was ambushed by Kylo Ren and the Knights of Ren on a mission, and simply needed help. That’s it. It’s not an unrealistic situation at all, and Rey still got the upper hand on Kylo Ren. She was in danger and outnumbered, and Finn showed up and helped her.



And it’s became very clear to me that it offended my friend for one reason. That reason was that by simply because my having Finn rescue Rey, I apparently shattered Rey’s character and turned her into a helpless damsel-in-distress….


A few weeks ago there was photoset made by @shropshiregirl79 for finnreyfridays. It was a daily planet au with Finn as superman and Rey as Lois Lane. One of the pictures showed Rey in danger and Finn rescuing her, carrying her in his arms. Someone got mad about that and said they made Rey into a damsel-in-distress. 

Another situation arose where someone posted artwork of Finn and Rey as an old-style movie, with Finn a detective pointing a gun at someone while Rey clung to him. Once again, someone got mad and said it turned Rey into a damsel-in-distress. 

It’s become so taboo in this fandom just to have Finn saving, or even protecting Rey without people (probably white feminists) getting mad at it. Why is that? Is Finn’s only role only to be put in peril for Rey to rescue?

And if you’re one of the people who gets mad about that, let me ask you a question.
Would you be mad if it was Finn?



TROOPER IN DISTRESS

Here’s the deal. I joined the fandom well over a year ago. I can safely say I’ve read about

thirty to forty fics

where at some point,

Finn is inevitably captured or put in peril, and rescued by Rey or Poe.

I’ve seen

finnrey shippers

who supposedly love and appreciate Finn, joke around and call

Finn a damsel-in-distress (or trooper-in-distress)

and talk about how Rey does nothing but save him over and over, and everyone laughs and jokes about it.



I’ve read fics where on the off-chance that Finn does risk his life to save Rey, he gets criticized for it because he was being

RECKLESS and Rey HAD IT UNDER CONTROL. Seriously? Finn can’t even save Rey without it involving him being stupid or catching hell or it? 

It’s always, “Finn why did you do that?! You could’ve died!” instead of “Wow Finn thank you for saving me, I’m glad you’re okay. That was pretty brave.”

But nope. Can’t even have that. 

I’ve read fics where Finn is flat out tied up and gagged.

I’ve read a fics where Finn is captured, beaten, stripped down and hosed and left in a cell shivering in the corner helpless, wishing that Rey or Poe was there to save him (but it’s okay because ta-da they come to his rescue).

I’ve read a fic where the entire thing was just worshiping Rey. Literally. It’s Poe’s pov during a battle, and Finn is basically getting beat up and dragged away by stormtroopers, by the way that’s his entire role in the fic, just to get his ass kicked. He doesn’t do anything else.
So Finn’s getting beat up, and the rest of the fic is Poe being completely ENAMORED left in AWE by Rey’s amazing flawless skills fighting through the stormtroopers and kicking ass left and right and looking SOOO beautiful and graceful with her lightsaber and she rescues Finn and Poe thanks her and thanks her over and over again. 

That’s the entire fic. Kissing Rey’s ass and kicking Finn’s. And guess what? The readers ate that shit up. They loved it. 

So let me sum it up again. Finn can get beat up by stormtroopers, captured thousands of times, stripped, tortured, hosed down, and left shivering in a corner basically crying for Poe and Rey like bait, and people say that they appreciate Finn’s character for this? This is okay to everyone?

Yet if I write a one shot where Rey is outnumbered, defeats Kylo Ren but is then outnumbered and Finn comes to save her, then I’m destroying Rey’s character? Then I don’t appreciate her character? Then the entire one-shot is sexist garbage based on turning Rey into a damsel in distress?


Apparently so. Thanks fandom. 

Again, I’ve been putting up with this for over a year, and it took a lot of time for me to actually muster up the courage to rant about it. If this offends you, you’re probably apart of the problem.



Finnamon Roll?


Okay, another major trend I’m sick of is the constant EMASCULATION OF FINN. 
Let me sum up Finn’s character.  He suffers from trauma. He was taken away as a baby and raised to be a ruthless killing machine. He endured 20+ years of brainwashing, propaganda, and conditioning. He had no friends whatsoever (SLIP WAS NOT HIS FRIEND). He was the best stormtrooper cadet in his unit. He almost never missed a shot with a blaster. He was an outcast, and constantly criticized for having a heart.

In TFA, he suffers from trauma, is still an expert shot with a blaster, rescues Poe, keeps Rey from getting shot by stormtroopers, makes a tough decision to leave Rey because he knows what the First Order is capable of, and even begs her to come with him. He comes right back into the fight after seeing Hosnian Prime get destroyed, and is witnesses Rey get kidnapped by his worst nightmare. 
What does he do? He decides to help the Resistance, gives them vital information that only HE knew, volunteers to go to SKB. Captures Phasma and forces her at gunpoint to lower the shields, helps Rey escape from SKB, witnesses Han’s murder, watches Rey get slammed into a tree, before making the final decision to stand up to his worst nightmare, knowing he might die just to protect Rey. His last line in the entire movie is “Come get it.”


After summarizing his character, how come all I see on tumblr is “awwwwww look at my cute smol wittle Finny. He’s so harmless and adorable!!!” Like…excuse me? Is that all tumblr was able to get from that movie? So let me get this straight. Because Finn isn’t a cold-blooded murderer, he’s suddenly nothing but a squishy pile of hearts and flowers and sugar  who couldn’t hurt a fly? Really?

How come in most highschool aus, Finn’s portrayed as an overly-meek or powerless nerd? If anything, Finn would probably be a pretty strong guy who gets straight As and stands up for his friends no matter what. But that doesn’t mean he’s a bully either. 

This is what the fandom does with his character, instead of exploring the endless possibilities with his backstory and trauma. AND on the off-chance that someone writes an actual Finn-centric fic based on his backstory, it’s always just Finn and his stormtrooper buddies having a romance or exploring sex for some reason. We can’t even have a Finn story without it circulating around people he knows. It’s always about someone else at the end of the day.

What’s heartbreaking is that most of the things I’m complaining about happens in the stormpilot and finnrey ships (this is where I expect people to unfollow me). Like come on guys. I could see r/eylos doing this, but not you guys. You’re so much better than that. 


Space Prince Finn (More Emasculation)


Look, when I first heard the idea of Finn being a lost Prince, I was stoked. I was blown away. My reaction was,”Finally! This fandom’s actually given Finn something of his own! He could be royalty! How dope would that be!”

But…of course, this fandom has to take that amazing concept and uh…

Well, we ruined that too. We basically turn Finn into a jewelry stand, and a makeup model. Of course, I’m not saying men can’t wear what they want. If a man wants to wear makeup or wear jewelry, that’s completely fine and I encourage that. But here’s the issue. 

We constantly idolize Princess Leia and Queen/Senator Amidala because they are figures of royalty who can fight and take care of themselves, as well as look badass while they do it. 

So why is it that when we have Prince Finn, he’s once again, emasculated, put in dresses and given nail polish, lipstick, doused in glitter, and turned into a damsel-in-distress who not only needs constant rescue once again, but this time needs Rey/Poe as a bodyguard to protect him?

It’s a double standard. I’m sorry but you can’t praise Leia and Padme for being badass royals who don’t need protection, and turn around and make Finn the opposite. 

And again, it’s something that the fandom eats up for some reason. We’ll shun the Hutt-Slayer bikini (rightfully so. it’s disgusting), make it a point to make fun of the hutt-slayer bikini and constantly criticize it, yet draw Finn in it and everyone thinks it’s cute and hilarious. This is the shit that I’m sick of. 

Look at T’Challa, otherwise known as Black Panther. He is royalty, but he’s also very powerful, knows how to fight, is an amazing fighter, and is taken seriously. Very seriously. He is strong, brave, serious, and intimidating, yet he’s not a bully or a stereotype. 

THIS. THIS is what I expected Prince Finn to be. This is what Prince Finn would be if it were canon. He’d be a strong leader, handsome, noble, powerful, and intimidating. And he wouldn’t need constant protection from Rey and/or Poe. Especially not this constant emasculation and woobifying. 

We live in a day and age where Princesses are being portrayed as stronger and stronger, and are told that they can rescue themselves. So why is Finn being treated the opposite? Why is Finn being treated like he’s just there to look pretty for commissions and make out with Poe? Why does he need all-powerful Rey to always protect him? Why can’t he be taken more seriously?

I want you to think about this.



Deactivating

Okay. This was a lot to cover, and it’s something that’s been nagging at me for a while now. Look. I look up to Finn. I really do. He’s my hero. He’s the first main black lead in Star Wars, and that means the world to me. I want to see him grow and be appreciate and given an epic role moving forward, and I feel like the Star Wars fandom isn’t the place I’m going to find any of that. 



Not a day goes by where I’m not tempted to deactivate and walk away from the fandom entirely. There’s just too much shit Finn is put through that drives me insane. There’s too many things that I look at or read that make me feel like this fandom will never actually appreciate Finn the way the he deserves to be appreciated. Even the people who say that they love Finn tend to do this.



So I wanted to write this rant in case I ever deactivate because of this fandom. Just so you, the readers, can know why.


Thanks for reading. Means a lot. If you’re still wondering when the One-Shot is coming out, probably next week. I have to finish it on my own.

Four years of Trump is four years of demanding our voices to be heard. Don’t stay silent. If you believe in something strongly enough then make it your mission to make change happen. Don’t sit and watch your beliefs get torn apart, get up off of that couch, out of your bed, and into the real world where real things happen that affect us all like it or not. A single voice starts an idea, but only we can make that idea spread. Women’s bodies are their own and they have the right to choose what is done with them. Women are not just pussies to be grabbed at, Muslims are not all terrorists, climate change is real, gay is not a choice, and building walls to keep out “problems” is not the solution literally or metaphorically. What I am saying is real, and if you can’t handle the reality of my words then the unfollow button is right up there. We can conquer this together.

Honestly the scariest thing about casserole claire’s books is that they’re targeted towards teenagers and they romanticize rape and abuse, promote racist and biphobic/homophobic themes and promote girl/girl hate. Like I was 12 when I read her books and I didn’t see any problem with the books at all. I thought everything was perfectly fine and I even remember praising casserole for her diversity. She’s teaching young teenagers that it’s okay to date two girls “accidentally”, and that if guys are grossly possessive over you its “cute” and “romantic”. She teaches young girls that it’s okay to hate other girls just for being pretty. She teaches people that it’s okay to accuse bi people of sleeping with everyone they know. And honestly it’s just sick. People writing children/YA books should be sending positive messages. Casserole is disgusting and I refuse to believe otherwise

let me explain something to those of y’all who think people are being dramatic or overreacting about this election. THESE PEOPLE ARE FUCKING SCARED and this is this is their/our reaction to fear. bitching and complaining about how we’re acting is not doing us or yourselves any good. if we’re causing you problems, unfollow or blacklist us. some of us have mental disorders like anxiety and depression and this shit just makes it WORSE. when you already feel like some bad shit is gonna happen when legit NOTHING IS GOING ON IMAGINE HOW THAT INCREASES WHEN THERE’S A CHANCE THAT SOMEONE LIKE DONALD TRUMP WILL BECOME PRESIDENT. the people who support him WANT US DEAD. we are scared, hurting, and venting on our own god damn blog

if you don’t fucking like that then BE GONE 

Just as a timely reminder:

If you support Trump in any way
If you believe white people and/or men are in any way superior to others
If you believe transgender people are faking it
If you believe gay/bi/pan people deserve to be taught their place or that they are sinning
If you are in any way against Jewish and/or Muslim people and think they should be removed or that they are making up all they’re problems

Get off my blog. Unfollow me. Never speak to me again. There’s no room for filth here and I’d gladly have a lower follower account knowing all the scum of the earth have been removed.

PS: please go back to whatever backwater hole or basement you came from and don’t touch the internet for at least the next decade.

a lot of people think it’s okay to ship sun/moon with adult characters bc sun/moon is the character representative of themselves and they’re adults, but regardless of what you are these characters are still themselves

like say you give your persona blue hair while your hair is really red. actually having red hair doesn’t change the fact that this character has blue hair, even if their thoughts and actions are your own.

sun and moon are children, that is not a variable. the player being otherwise doesn’t change that. the character you project on is plenty of things you aren’t and you have be conscious of the existence of them outside your influence.

im unfollowing so many people for saying alec forced magnus to do things. honestly you haven’t been watching the same show at all. magnus wouldn’t have let things get that far if he had a problem with it. he can stop alec at any time.
