Und sie sagen mir, ich soll ihn vergessen, aber wie soll man jemanden vergessen, dem man sein Herz anvertraut hat? Sagt mir, wie soll ich den Klang seiner wundervollen Stimme vergessen, die mich beruhigt, wie Medizin für meine Seele ist und jedes mal mein Herz erwärmt. Wie soll ich sein Lächeln vergessen, dieses wunderschöne Lächeln mit dem er mein Herz auftaut, wenn es gefriert, dieses Lächeln, dass in meinem Körper den Frühling auslöst und Blumen in meinem Herzen blühen lässt? Wie soll ich den einzigartigen Farbton seiner Augen vergessen, wenn Sie es sind, die mich in andere Welten schweben lassen, wenn er mit einem einzigen Blick meinen Herzschlag kontrolliert? Wie soll ich das Leuchten in seinen Augen vergessen, das mir gezeigt hat, wie viel Liebe er mir gegenüber verspürt und mir seinen Wunsch gemeinsam mit mir in die Zukunft zu gehen offenbart hat? Wie soll ich die Wärme seiner Hände vergessen, wenn er mit ihr mein Herz erwärmt und mich das Gefühl von Heimat verspüren lässt? Wie soll ich seinen Charakter vergessen, seine liebenswerte Art, die mich zum Lächeln bringt, seine Eifersucht, die mir gezeigt hat, wie abhängig er von mir ist und seine niedliche Art, die mich so oft zum Lächeln brachte, weil sein Ziel war, mich glücklich zu machen? Wie soll ich vergessen, wie er seine Arme um mich gelegt hat, als es mir schlecht geht, um mir zu zeigen, dass er mich beschützt? Wie soll ich jemanden vergessen, der in meinem Herzen lebt, der Alles für mich ist, der meine Sucht ist und von dem ich abhängig bin? Wie soll ich ihn vergessen, wenn ich nur ihn will, obwohl ich erst so jung bin, so wenig in dieser Welt gesehen habe und er es war, der mir die Liebe beigebracht hat? Bitte sagt mir nicht, ich soll ihn vergessen, wenn mein Herz nur ihm gehört und er mit seinen Händen meine gesamte Welt erschaffen hat, sagt mir nicht, ich soll ihn vergessen, wenn er mein Herz und meine Welt ist.

Dear Dark-Skin Women,
You don’t have to objectify yourself to be beautiful. Your skin tone alone turns heads. Your eyes are hypnotic and your presence is powerful. Continue to keep your head up and stay proud, my queens. A fire burns in my chest for all the dark-skin women who are put down every day on social media or in pop culture; and used as an accessory in other media. “Shade” does not define you. A man does not define you. “Likes” on IG does not define you; who repost you or follows you doesn’t define you. Your purpose defines you. My purpose is to seek, photoshoot and inspire women of color all over world. My passion is you! And to promote self love, one love and the pursuit of happiness.
P.S: I love you all very much. Tag someone who needs motivation and reassurance 🌻

about reposting…

Hello! Thanks so so much for letting me know about the reposter; not only have they reposted my crop top series without credit, that also reposted my decora series, crediting the wrong person! (x x) I don’t really know how to use my instagram account, but i’ll try to contact them, thank you for letting me know.

As lenient as I am about reposting, this person still failed to follow them. My only requirements for reposting is to credit me and not to repost on something i’m already using (tumblr, twitter, pixiv).

Saying something like “credit to the artist” is not a proper way to credit. I know the purpose is to officially claim that you didn’t make it, but saying “credit to the artist” doesn’t give the artist any exposure at all. With no credits, artists are unable to find their works and ask the reposter to take it down. It is the reposter’s job, their responsibility, to reverse image search the image and find the original artist to the best of their ability. There is no way around this; if you say that you didn’t give credits because you don’t know who the artist is, you’re in the wrong. If you don’t know the artist, you shouldn’t repost it at all. No exceptions. It’s extra work, but if you want to be respected to any degree, it’s the least you can do.

(If you don’t know how to reverse image search: open up google image search, click on the camera icon

choose whether you have the url or saved image, and upload it.

When it uploads, click on the link that says “All sizes”

Browse to the best of your ability for the original artist, this will take time, but there is no way around that. Pinterest is not a source, but it may help you find the original.

)

Reposting is generally a horrible practice, but I know that with the internet, it’s impossible to avoid. However, there is a better way to do it rather than just pulling images as you will. I imagine the biggest reason why reposters do this kind of thing is because they don’t understand the consequences of their actions. Heavy reposting can genuinely and deeply hurt an artist’s career. I have heard stories of artists that deleted their presence of the internet after becoming disheartened by reposts. This is the answer that reposters argue is the actual solution, saying something along the lines of “If you didn’t want it reposted, why put it on the internet?” Along with that, if an artist uses an artwork that has been reposted in a portfolio to present for a job or school, they can be denied completely. There’s also the fact that reposting can lead to false crediting, and split exposure. If you repost on the same website, the notes will be split between the original and the repost, hurting the artist’s chance at exposure and attention. In the example, a reposter ended up gaining the credit and attention of an audience around 300 thousand strong, and that audience includes potential clients. So it may not seem like much, but reposting can hurt an artist’s professional life and self worth. The argument is that if an artist doesn’t want their work to be reposted, they shouldn’t upload onto social media. However, nowadays uploading onto the internet is the best way for artists to gain exposure and start a career. And also, it’s a disgusting thing to blame the artist in this situation.

Some artists are more strict about reposting than others, enough to watermark all their artwork with “do not repost” and stuff. Some artists are more transparent about that than others. This is why it is so so important to ask permission before reposting. Many artists are more than thankful that people ask permission. If you don’t have permission, don’t repost, no exceptions. There’s a chance that the artist will never respond (maybe language barrier or inactivity or otherwise) if this is the case, just don’t repost. Often the artist will be transparent about their reposting rules (i have mine in my about), so try browsing that before reposting too.

With all this in mind, there is no justifiable reason to repost art without proper credit or permission. If you repost any artwork at all without credits, you are doing a horrible and disgusting act, feeding off of the hard work of artists for the sake of your own satisfaction. Saving work to admire on your personal device is different from saving and then uploading to a social media to feed off of attention that you don’t deserve is disgusting. With the internet, it’s impossible to completely eliminate this kind of behavior, but it’s disgusting to have a community that is so content with it.

Thank you to those who read. I know only those who care will actually read it all, but hopefully i was able to convince at least one person. This is a serious situation.

edit: Mystic.rfa has been very understanding in taking down work and searching for credits. They are relieved that anons on tumblr have been contacting artists because they can now more easily find credits.
