I’m well aware that you know it’s important to credit creators. This goes for photoshop and art alike (etc) . I really hope you saw that my thing with Tom Brady and Tyler was used and not credited (as far as I know, please correct me if it was). I just want to reiterate something.
In my book, it is never okay to use someone’s content without direct permission from them. It is okay, however, if this content includes the person using it and is credited properly. Example: Markiplier fanart being used by Mark and Mark only, so long as it’s credited.
I saw Tyler defend someone who stole my art, saying they only wanted to share it. This is wrong. You need direct permission from an artist to use it.
Please, advocate something like this in the community, and please please please, at least give me credit. I am mad by principle. You cannot excuse theft in anyway.
Edit: I’m not mad per say. I’m dissapointed. I understand Mark has good intentions and I understand he likely forgot. Just principle here.
It’s not ‘aphobic’ to acknowledge the desexualization of autistic people as a negative thing, if you’re an ace autistic and your first response to someone saying “Autistic/coded characters being either canonically asexual or widely interpreted as such is related to ableism and harmful” is to feel offended you need to step outside of yourself. This isn’t about you and your personal identity this is about the fact that autistic people are assumed to be asexual or aromantic or incapable of having these experiences.
When autistic people are desexualized and removed from their autonomy to the extent that it’s common belief that autistic people cannot or have no interest in engaging with sex or romance it is a problem and you need to think outside of your own feelings and how this affects us as a whole.
Friendly reminder that Dan is a person with actual human feelings and trying to pressure him to come out, if he’s actually gay/bi/pan, is just going to make him more afraid to come out.
Ever since this “cheeky new video lol” has started circulating I’ve seen fans literally threaten to hurt/kill Dan if he doesn’t come out in his next video. This is super not OK.
You don’t already “know” he’s gay. You can’t “tell”. Please respect him and allow him to come out (or not) on his own terms.
