People who act like they’re above criticism are ridiculous.

Yes, there’s a difference between constructive criticism and flaming. It’s not even hard to tell the difference because the wording and intent are pretty much the opposite.

Flames seek to damage the ego of a content creator and make them feel bad about their work. Constructive criticism helps them improve on their work so that it’s better later on.

You don’t have to take all constructive criticism. If you did that, you’d be constantly changing your work and that would be impractical and might even ruin it. But at least think about it when you receive it. Why would someone take the time to let you know what you might have done wrong so you can do a better job? Talk it over with others. Thank the person who was polite in pointing out mistakes you might have made. Yes, even if you don’t plan on taking their advice.

Content creators in fandoms who act like their work is perfect because they worked hard on it or they think they’re above criticism really need to grow up. No content is above criticism because no content is perfect. 

The only thing an aversion to criticism will eventually do is drive people away from you. Only trusting your own vision won’t end well. No matter how talented you are, you can still improve. And yes, it might hurt to hear that something you did has glaring flaws but better to fix it the next time around than to never fix it at all.

Without Big Time Rush, there would be no One Direction or 5 seconds of Summer.

Without The Cheetah Girls, there would be no 5th Harmony or Little Mix.

These 2 iconic groups ushered in the modern boyband/girl group era and their impact & legacy in both the music AND television industries is the reason that these other “groups” have even had a chance to succeed. Know your history and put some respect on their names.Without their contributions these groups would be NOTHING

if you think the invention of the internet has made people believe anything, you are dead wrong

when photographs were invented, people assumed anything in a photograph had to be real. so in 1917 some little girls drew pictures of fairies, cut them out, and took pictures of them in various positions. people bought it. sir arthur conan doyle even endorsed it in a scholarly article.

convincing as fuck, right???

THE GIRLS DIDN’T EVEN ADMIT THEY WERE FAKE TIL THE 1980′s!!!!

(for you history nerds, this is known as the “cottingley fairies” hoax)

Since I’ve been through a lot of stressful moments lately I hopped I can hug fatgum, so I’ve drawn it!!

Also, I read a cute headcanon about fat having pink pastel hair, how cute is that?

Okay so seeing Wonder Woman was literally eye-opening for me. I always knew that movies, action movies in particular, are really sexist towards women. I just didn’t realize how bad it was until I saw a superhero movie directed by a woman.

In almost every movie I’ve seen, the woman was always the damsel in distress or just some lousy love interest. And in action movies, mainly superhero movies, the camera is always focused on the woman’s boobs while she’s fighting. Yes, I’m mainly talking about Black Widow in the Avengers movies.

But in Wonder Woman, there were no close-up shots of her boobs while she was fighting. In fact, I don’t think that any woman even showed her cleavage, at all. They weren’t sexualized in any way. 

And all of the women looked like real people. There were women with big muscles, women with scars, there were women with thick thighs and arms that would jiggle when they were fighting, there were dark skinned women. They didn’t just all look like the stereotypical super thin white girls that you usually see in big movies.

The flirting was also very minimal. There were almost no romantic scenes at all.

And none of the men tried to undermine or belittle the women, and when they did Diana would just start talking about how she could do things better than them.

And the fight scenes. They were so amazing. They didn’t try to make the women look super pretty while doing it. No, they were full on fighting. Nasty, brutal, screams-of-pure-rage fighting.

But she always had a reason for fighting, and she always did it because she genuinely believes in hope and peace and protecting innocent people and people who can’t fight for themselves.

This movie sends out so many great messages for little girls, saying that you can fight for what you believe in and even if you don’t succeed the first time, not to give up because it is always worth it in the end.

Like I was thinking about it in the movie theater. For some little girls, Wonder Woman is their first superhero. There are little girls who will grow up with this movie and cherish it because it is the first and only movie with a lead female superhero. There are little girls who will grow up thinking that they want to do some good in this world, just like she did. I almost cried during several parts in the movie just thinking about that.

So please, for the love of all things good, please go see this movie. Not only is it a huge deal for women and girls now, it will be for generations to come. 

I think I’m going through a little bit of an art block *sigh*

I was doing some Asra art but I thought it made sense to introduce my apprentice first, Mai

Has anyone else noticed that it’s a trend for the Thanksgiving episode of most tv shows to be a trainwreck? I don’t mean that it’s bad writing; the story itself is intentionally written to be stressful and hectic and an all out catastrophe. Friends had like five Thanksgiving episodes, and each one got progressively more chaotic.
