And then, in 2010, Marvel Comics presented a Spider-Man (the ‘Ultimate’ version) who was 13 years old and brown. To see Spider-Man pulling his mask over a tiny brown chin – to see a boy with short curly hair sticking to the ceiling of his bedroom— well, something happened. Dagim has been Spider-Man for two Halloweens in a row. He takes a bath with his Spider-Man and a toy killer whale. He has Spider-Man toothpaste and a Spider-Man toothbrush. If Spider-Man offered medical coverage, I think he would want that, too.
………….
I thought for a while that my son would never be interested in my comics. I was afraid they would just represent another club he couldn’t join: all those big-jawed white guys with their hair parted to the side. But thanks to Spider-Man, my son imagines himself jumping on giant robots and saving the city. I hear him doing that behind the door of his room.

The latest rumors surrounding the Xbox One are that the demos that Microsoft allowed people to play on at E3 were not running on an Xbox One, but instead running on high-end PCs with Titan graphics cards.


If this is the case, they were running the games on a system that is around 3x faster than the Xbox One.

These rumors are backed up by images that clearly show a high-end desktop under the displays of the Xbox One stands at E3.

people have actually sat down on their chair, went to a gaming website, searched for the xbox one, clicked the pre-order button, paid $500, and are actually waiting for it

THIS IS WHAT SHE WROTE ON MY PAPER OMG

“I’m sorry, but “They sound like a cute couple if one was a girl”???  Are we teaching homophobia in schools, now?  What happened to equal rights?

Woh… this teacher is actually homophobic AND rude!

I would have literally screamed at him/her.

Ok, I don’t normally add my input to this but… ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS?! DO YOU GUYS SEE THE LAST THING THIS TEACHER FUCKING PUT?! DO YOU?! PLEASE HAVE A PARENT OR GUARDIAN SIGN HERE AFTER READING THIS INDICATING THEY KNOW YOU NEED HELP.

WHAT THE LIVING FUCK?! I’m sooooo damn sorry that apparently writing a story about a same sex couple means we need help. LOOKS LIKE OVER HALF OF TUMBLR NEEDS HELP GUYS. WE NEED TO GO TO THERAPY BECAUSE WE DECIDED TO SHOW THAT IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE A FUCKING BOY AND A FUCKING GIRL TO BE A COUPLE. LOVE IS LOVE, GOD DAMN IT. YOU EVEN SAID THEY SOUNDED LIKE A CUTE COUPLE. THEN YOU HAD TO BE A DOUCHE BAG AND ADD IN IF ONE OF THEM WAS A GIRL. 


If your student wants to write about a same sex couple YOU LET THEM FUCKING DO IT. 

I would love to see if (s)he were to write this on a student’s paper who has same sex parents and the story was about their parents. OH I HOPE TO GOD IT HAPPENS. 

Because then this teacher could have a bitch fit, seeing two male or two female signatures and be all like ‘OH, IS THIS A FREAKING JOKE?! THESE ARE YOUR CHARACTER’S SIGNATURES, YOU OBVIOUSLY DID THIS YOURSELF.’ And the student would say,

‘No. I wrote the story with my parents. You can call them.’ And the teacher will call for a parent teacher meeting with BOTH parents, and oh my God, it would be beautiful. I’m sorry, but this pisses me the fuck off. Don’t you dare go tell a child that they need help for something they fucking wrote as a project. You gave a good grade, they haven’t done anything or shown any signs of needing help right? You just can’t fucking stand same sex couples, because you are a closed minded little asshole, who wants to judge everyone else because of it. GOOD NIGHT, I’M DONE. SCREW THE WORLD, SCREW HUMANITY. I CAN’T FUCKING BELIEVE THAT IT HAS GOTTEN TO LEAD EVEN TO THIS.

^^

FUCKING THANK YOU.

THIS IS SO WRONG FUCK EVERYTHING

Are you fucking serious

One of the best things I’ve ever read on tumblr, give it a read - it’ll only take a second

So empowering and so true. I’ve seen people roll their eyes or say “oh come on” when talking about feeling unsafe alone or not trusting men. No matter how ridiculous people make you feel it is absolutely true, ALWAYS better safe than sorry.

Things I feel shitty about #3432: Opening up for Commissions

Okay, I did laugh in amusement when I saw this. But at the same time, I think a person opening up art commissions to earn spending money should not be blamed or hated on for doing so. It’s an artist’s right to set up commissions just for the sake of earning money because, you know, artists are human beings who need to make a living to survive. With so many artists in fandom selling their skills for a pittance (which they shouldn’t), many people have this wrong idea that an artist is only worth being hired/paid any money at all for their work if there’s some terrible tragedy going on in the artist’s life and they assume the artist won’t be spending any of it for their personal use. That is messed up.

Yeah, I completely agree. 

I mean, when artists open up for commissions, they don’t have to be asking for help or charity in order to deserve that money. They are giving a service/product for money, the same as every other job ever. And you don’t see people shaming people for, say, working in a store. 

“How dare you work in this store, selling people things in order to get paid!? Don’t you know there are people who need that money more!?”

Exactly.

In the industry, professionals are paid big time for their work compared to fandom fees, and rightfully so. You’d have to be if you have a family who depends on you for financial security for, oh, decades or more. And even if you’re a single person, you’re still entitled to being paid fairly for your work.

I think the fandom-screwing-over-artists issue has a lot to do with people becoming too spoilt by the regular influx of freely done fan art. To a certain extent, I can’t blame them when they say, “Why should I give you this amount of money when I can just request another artist to do the same for free?” It’s true. They can do that, and there are many artists on the internet who would gladly make art for free for countless requests. But, when an artist sets up commissions, the artist is entitled to their rates and receiving them for their efforts, just like a person is entitled to not hire that artist if they can’t afford or don’t want to pay the established rates.
