I will be the captain of a Gender Army and try to find people who repost your stuff and take them down
I’m certainly not advocating a witch hunt for reposters but there are a few ways you guys can help me out!
- don’t delete the caption when you reblog comics, I don’t care if it makes your blog theme look ugly
- if you see one of my comics on another website, comment on it/message the poster and let them know ‘X is the artist and you don’t have permission to post this, please remove it’
- in addition you can also message me/tag me in the post so I can file a report if necessary
- if you want to use one of my comics in a school project/article/blog post etc., please ask permission first! I’m happy for my work to be used for certain things but I still want you to ask first, it’s only polite
- if you want to share a comic to facebook/Twitter etc., instead of reposting the image you can post a link back to the original source here on Tumblr
this isn’t just for my benefit, if you recognise a piece of work on social media and it wasn’t made by the account posting it, speak up! art theft and reposting is a huge problem in the online art community (and HUGE in the LGBT+ online community) that actively damages content creators and we need to start fighting back
