the way we idolize great artistic creators, writers, directors, musicians, etc who have had a history of abusing others is a problem
attempting to separate the art from the artist is the most obvious way that we put the experiences of white men above all others
that somehow the ‘objective’ view of the art exists separately of the abuse basically separates the experience of the ‘white male society’ and ‘everyone else’ and defines the victim’s perspective as ‘subjective’ right from the start
woody allen, john lennon, stanley kubrick, roman polanski: when the abuse happens so frequently and consistently with our most revered artists we need to stop attempting to ignore the problem by saying their abuse exists separately from their art
we need to start considering that something about how we value art is fundamentally flawed
that ‘good’ or ‘bad’ taste might be coded to actually mean ‘abuser’ and ‘victim’
and they dont have to be real people, or people at all! (if you do want a ~realistic portrait~ of an oc or cartoon or whatever, a faceclaim would be helpful though, if only because otherwise ill have to pick my own and that could lead to.. questionable results)
Hey the thing I reblogged earlier reminded me to mention this:
I can promise all my followers that I do not post or reblog jump scares, ever, because A) I don’t like them and they suck, and B) I know at least a few of my followers have anxiety in one form or another and I’m not going to be that jerk.
So yes. There will be no jump scares from this blog, just wanted to ease your minds preemptively.
can y’all stop reblogging that tweet with the “i scared the mexican woman in my backyard” because that picture is of a native mexican woman who gave birth on the lawn of the hospital that refused to treat her and tbh that tweet is messed up
the most unattractive quality to me in other people is constant belittling of what means a lot to others. being contrarian just to be contrarian. people who love to play devil’s advocate. a kind of smugness about everything. an air of being above everyone because you don’t care about anything deeply like the people you mock
like damn how hard is it to say “boyfriend” “love of my life” etc. instead of bae how hard it is to say “you look good!” instead of werk or slay how hard is it to literally go back to the way you spoke before it became cool to talk like black people
Hi! I wanted to say that I adore your art, and I am a huge fan of SU! What I wanted to know is how you got recruited? I am an artist and an aspiring animator, and if you have any tips I'd love to hear them!
Thank you!! im pretty this happened because the crew saw my comics and fanart and took a liking to them!! and then one day i was asked to do a storyboard test, which i guess went pretty well considering!!!
i think as far as tips go, just draw what you love and what you want, and put your all into it!!! and always always always put your name/url on your stuff, because your work can and will get around, and typically when people are too lazy to credit you they’ll also be too lazy to remove your watermark.
another thing i would suggest is not to wait for a school to teach you. draw and do and learn, either by actually taking the time to study, or just organically by trial and error and time!!! also you should buy the animators survival kit.
have fun most importantly!!! love what you do, and don’t do it just because you think it’s what you’re supposed to do.
I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -
Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.
Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.
If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.
And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.
