Actual photos from DashCon
They haven’t emailed me back and I’ve emailed them TWICE now… I’ve told other’s to email them too, but I don’t know if it’s just you and I so far that’s emailed them… I’ve obviously had people come to me with concerns about going to the con though, so hopefully if the staff sees that there are people clearly very worried and hesitant to attend their convention, they’ll do something about it.
All right. Thank you.
I’m gonna reblog this so I can spread the word, if that’s okay.
For those of you in the know about the whole psyguy debacle, he and Dave will be attending Galacon in less than two months as guests.
I don’t think this needs much of an explanation as to why this is worrisome, but I’ll give one just in case.
These guys are pedophiles. Dave helped harass an ex of Psy’s when she was only thirteen, and the two even argued over “who would get to fuck her first” when she reached the legal age of consent, among other things. As you may or may not know, these two kind of have a heavy influence in the MLP community and will be attending Galacon this year, which is kind of a big deal to many MLP fans.
fluffy-moose and I emailed Galacon telling them about this mess. I asked that they not support these two and not let them attend, as to not endanger young, impressionable fans, but we haven’t heard a word from Galacon yet, and Psy and Dave are still listed as community guests, so…this is worrisome.
To anyone wronged by one (or both) of these two, please contact Galacon and link the masterpost that superpsyguy-callout has posted as proof of why Psy and Dave should not be allowed to attend. Make it very clear that your intent is not to slander these two, but to keep current and future fans out of harm’s way. If enough people email the staff, it can only help our case in letting them know we’re serious about this.
Since the release of Blackfish, a documentary which chronicled the troubled life of the orca Tilikum (above), in 2013, the percentage of Americans opposed to cetacean captivity has risen to 50% (up 11% from a 2012 poll). SeaWorld’s attendance has dropped 13% in the first quarter of 2014, with earnings down 11%. The Blackstone Group, which purchased SeaWorld in 2009, reduced their holdings of SeaWorld’s stock to 25%. The National Aquarium in Baltimore is now considering ending their practice of displaying dolphins and retiring their animals to a sea pen. The ‘Blackfish effect’ has changed so many lives, but what about its star, Tilikum?
Despite a year of SeaWorld’s costly PR campaigns, YouTube videos and commercials touting their exceptional animal care, Tilikum and the other orcas at SeaWorld’s parks haven’t seen any real improvement in their lives. Their tanks haven’t been expanded, broken family bonds have not been repaired and Tilikum the deadly 12,000 pound bull orca is still floating like a cork in the dank pool that made him famous. After a year of protests, reduced turnstile clicks and constant attacks on their social media platforms, SeaWorld still hasn’t gotten the message and Tilikum, the one being whose existence should have been impacted the most by the Blackfish effect, remains untouched by its message.
SeaWorld is never going to volunteer to do the right thing by Tilikum or any of their 28 other whales, it’s up to us to #emptythetanks.
my therapist taught me to start thinking of my anxiety as my panicky friend
this is so cute omg
Woah this is super useful!!
For all my anxious friends out there.
This totally works! Some of us get stuck in the sense that we *are* our emotions, so they overwhelm us and we can’t do anything about them. When you give your emotion an identity separate from you, it gives you the distance to make better judgments about it, and to comfort yourself better. 10/10 therapy veterans would recommend.
so my animation professor has worked on all of the major disney movies like lion king, little mermaid, aladdin, beauty and the beast etc.
and he was talking about the issues a lot of disney stories have and how the writers kinda just shrugged about them and hoped people wouldnt notice and PEOPLE DID
ACTUAL LITTLE KIDS
like he said one time when they were doing a panel a little girl asked why ariel couldn’t just WRITE ERIC A LETTER TELLING HIM IT WAS HER WHO SAVED HIM B/C SHE SIGNED URSULA’S CONTRACT WHICH MEANS SHE COULD WRITE and all of the animators n writers just skipped over her question
and another time they were questioned about princess and the frog and how charlotte coulda just helped tiana with her restaurant b/c she’s rich and they’re friends so yanno
but the writers just sorta laughed nervously
these stories make me laugh b/c so many people try and say dont pay attention to the issues some disney movies have b/c they’re for little kids and little kids can’t think critically > v >
ahh yes good times
the writers kinda just shrugged about them and hoped people wouldnt notice
The Hollywood standard for storytelling: hope people aren’t paying attention to the story, distract them with loud noises and pretty things.
It’s time to shutdown 4chan.org
Join us on July 4th to celebrate our freedom and independence from racists by shutting down 4chan.
We will go to their site and as a form of protest we will overwhelm them with corrections to their awful lies and let them really know what the world thinks of them.
TW: I don’t think it’s really safe to go alone. The misogyny, transphobia, homophobia, anti-semitism, rape jokes and blatant racism will often be too much for any sane person.
Please spread the message and don’t be afraid to get involved!
Comics, stories, poetry, essays or pictures are all welcome! Every little helps!
See you on July 4th
You guys remember that hypothetical battle royale between Tumblr and 4chan that I sometimes talk about?
We just got a date.
And here we have a prime example of the pot calling the kettle black (with minor differences).
These idiots just want to jostle the hornet’s nest now, don’t they? I sure hope they can withstand the aftermath.
Wow… So we’re going to have two tumblr ‘battles’ to watch? This ‘ShutDown4Chan’ bs which, really, I think whoever is doing this needs to go read some fucking Nietzsche because they have obviously never heard of the quote ‘he who fights monsters…’
And we have the boiling pot of molten ore that DashCon is going to be.
*sits back* You know, sometimes you just want to sit back and watch a wildfire break out and not do anything; just watch the flames encompass everything involved…
Reblogging this in case something happens to Tumblr on July 4th.
July’s going to be a magnificent month, isn’t it?
Hello Kitty Donut.
Tomorrow is National Donut/Doughnut Day!
This one is where I draw the line. Today is the 70th anniversary of D-Day.
This is disgusting on Tumblr’s part, especially this joke.
“Allied casualties on the first day were at least 12,000, with 4,414 confirmed dead.”
Yes,remember their sacrifice. The thousands of soldiers who fought in the Normandy landings and lost their lives. Remember that, not some ridiculous holiday about donuts.
IS THIS SERIOUSLY WHAT THE DONUT THING IS
IM FUCKING LIVID
are you fuckin kidding me rn
they took D-Day and made it Donut Day… Tumblr no
National Doughnut Day is on the first Friday of June each year, succeeding the Doughnut Day event created by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the men and women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.
It just so happens that that the first friday in June is the 6th.
Rebloggin’ this for good info.
Remember people. Do your research before you flip your lid about something.
Yes, lets imagine a world WITHOUT MUSLIMS, shall we?
Without Muslims you wouldn’t have:
Crank-shaft, internal combustion engine, valves, pistons
Architectural innovation (pointed arch -European Gothic cathedrals adopted this technique as it made the building much stronger, rose windows, dome buildings, round towers, etc.)
Treatment of Cowpox
3 course meal (soup, meat/fish, fruit/nuts)
Gardens used for beauty and meditation instead of for herbs and kitchen.
- Mariner’s Compass
- Soft drinks
- Plastic surgery
- Manufacturing of paper and cloth
It was a Muslim who realized that light ENTERS our eyes, unlike the Greeks who thought we EMITTED rays, and so invented a camera from this discovery.
It was a Muslim who first tried to FLY in 852, even though it is the Wright Brothers who have taken the credit.
It was a Muslim by the name of Jabir ibn Hayyan who was known as the founder of modern Chemistry. He transformed alchemy into chemistry. He invented: distillation, purification, oxidation, evaporation, and filtration. He also discovered sulfuric and nitric acid.
It is a Muslim, by the name of Al-Jazari who is known as the father of robotics.
It was a Muslim who was the architect for Henry V’s castle.
It was a Muslim who invented hollow needles to suck cataracts from eyes, a technique still used today.
It was a Muslim who actually discovered inoculation, not Jenner and Pasteur to treat cowpox. The West just brought it over from Turkey
It was Muslims who contributed much to mathematics like Algebra and Trigonometry, which was imported over to Europe 300 years later to Fibonnaci and the rest.
It was Muslims who discovered that the Earth was round 500 years before Galileo did.
The list goes on………..
Just imagine a world without Muslims. Now I think you probably meant, JUST IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT TERRORISTS. And then I would agree, the world would definitely be a better place without those pieces of filth. But to hold a whole group responsible for the actions of a few is ignorant and racist. No one would ever expect Christians or White people to be held responsible for the acts of Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma bombing) or Andreas Brevik (Norway killing), or the gun man that shot Congresswoman Giffords in head, wounded 12 and killed 6 people, and rightly so because they had nothing to do with those incidents! Just like the rest of the 1.5 billion Muslims have nothing to do with this incident!
Take note: generalizing a group of people based on the harmful actions of a few is wrong.
Never ever stop reblogging.
Best post i have ever seen,
Words chosen perfectly.
I also get sick of people bashing all muslims just because what a few did.
