Now Playing Tracks

I know I’ve been gone for a while. I’m sorry. I’m dealing with a lot in my personal life right now, plus working on some other projects. I can’t promise when I’ll start posting regularly again.

If you want to see one of the projects I’ve been working on lately, here you go.

(Spread the word and get searching!)

#SafeSearchWrapUp is heavily community driven effort to help make the SafeSearch features on image-search engines such as GoogleImages be free of NSFW content. Every cartoon from “Avatar: The Last Airbender” to “Young Justice” contains fan made pornographic works referred to as Rule-34. Rule-34 is a catch all term detonating porn of ANYTHING and EVERYTHING, cartoon or not. However searching up images of any animated series will likely turn up these images, even on the first few pages.

As the teen and adult fans of the show, we have to be considerate of the younger target audience. A lot of parents and their children may be looking up images of their favorite characters to print out and put on their wall or such. So lets come together …. no wait. As a community we can make image searching safer for the young ones and their parents. No shutting down or deleting things from existence, simply keeping it off SafeSearch as a courtesy for others.

The Game Plan:

Everyone should pick at least one search term they think would commonly used by kids and their parents, such as “My little pony twilight sparkle”. You can search at your leisure through a few pages… say 5-10 at least? However, on the 7th and 20th of every month we can all do it in large droves. If the call is sent out all at the same time, like a tradition then more people are likely to participate. Additionally, if Google or Bing gets a lot of flags for the same image from a lot of people- we can assume they will be more likely to remove it.

What to look for? Gore, blood, penises, vaginas, and perhaps lingerie. Just use your best judgement. Honestly if its something you wouldn’t look at while at work or show to a kid, then its probably not something we want showing up in a safe-search! If you think it should be done out of safe search as well, then thats your call to make.

How To Flag:

On Google, simply enlarge an image and go to Send Feedback circled here and enter comment notifying them the image is “not suitable for children” or something along those lines:

On Bing, simply click the flag image in the lower left corner when you hover over an image. Then check the “Adult” checkbox. Quick and easy! Lets do this!

Note: The original date was going to be the 15th of every month, however I decided to do it en masse twice a month instead.

I am so down for that you don’t even understand

see? this is how you fix the whole porn thing. not “YOU FUCKING SCUM PERVERTS YOU’RE RUINING THE SHOW FOR CHILDREN” Instead of yelling to see who can be the loudest idiot, we’re actually getting shit done. I’m double down for this.

Activism being done correctly? Good job!

you people have absolutely no critical thinking skills

one is a disrespectful, extremely inaccurate and highly romanticized and steteotyped ‘interpretation’ of native american imagery, appropriated to serve as a novel, kitschy piece of native culture that for white people to consume and use as they please, while actual native americans are having their culture, languages and land stolen from them.

the other is a fictional comic book character, playing a fictional race of peoples, that is loosely based on norse myth. without Idris playing that role, the entire population of asgard would have been as pale as the driven snow. this is a film meant for a modern, global audience but you want less PoC in it? and if you’re going to argue that it would have been ‘historically accurate’ for all norse gods to be white then you can go throw yourself into a pile of horse shit because the idea that anything in the Thor movies or comics is ‘historically accurate’ is extremely ludicrous.

so you can all stop with the inane comparisons now and go back to eating your mayo and crackers or whatever it is white people do when they’re not screwing over other races.

You people have absolutely no critical thinking critical thinking skills.

One is a disrespectful, extremely inaccurate and highly romanticized ‘interpretation’ of a norse god, appropriated to serve as a novel, kitschy piece of norse culture for Pickers of Cotton to use as entertainment as they please while northern europeans are having their culture, nations and women raped by immigrants. 

The other is a costume made for children to wear on halloween that is loosely based on old American Indian clothing. 

So you can stop with the inane complaining now and go back to eating fried chicken and watermelon or whatever it is black people do when they’re not sponging off of the achievements of other races.  

Racist bastard.

Holy shit, davachio. You seriously upset because a fictional member of a fictional race of inter-dimensional aliens was played by a black guy? Here’s a newsflash for you: The Marvel version of Asgardians have very very little to do with actual Norse mythology. It’s an extremely loose interpretation. Also, the Norse gods haven’t been widely worshiped in centuries…in fact, it’s been long enough, and there are so few first-hand accounts of said worship, that some historians actually question rather or not the Norse pantheon was ever worshiped at all. 

As for the rest of it, I don’t even know what to say. I think I’ll just stick with what femmefatalesshai had to say: “racist bastard.”

When A Bar Full Of Women Was A Nightmarish Dystopia

Links  1,  2,  3,  4,  5 

I would like to point out that the main problem with this article is the fact that it does not at all delve into why this cartoon was actually a dystopian portrayal of the future. It’s true that it was done as an anti-suffrage piece of satire. But the article doesn’t explain really explain it well. It relies on saying that women were drinking and smoking, without providing an accurate account of why that would have been seen as a bad thing. So, in short, the article is correct, but it doesn’t show it’s work.

You know what term I really hate? “In recent years.” It bothers me because it is so damned vague and easy to manipulate. Like, let’s say there was an article that said “There were 12 cases of rape in [Smallish Town] in recent years.” Well, what’s recent years? Two years? Three? Nine? Fifteen? It gives no clear time span, which means that you can easily manipulate data to make things seem better or worse according to your bias.

Every time I see that phrase, the author automatically loses at least some of their credibility in my eyes.

wiat… r jewish ppl poc? all the jewish ppl i kno r white ???

The only Jews that really benefit from white privilege are 1) converts 2) Professor Goldberg Blonde Hair Blue eyes. Judaism is an ethnoreligious identity. Which means that it’s both an ethnicity and a religion. Plus not all Jews come from Europe(Jews from europe are called Ashkenazim, Medditeranean is Sephardim, Middle East is Mizrachim, African is Ethiopian) in fact most do not. Also any Jews being considered “white” is a US concept and it’s only been around for a few decades. 

it’s more complicated than that, in that white/nonwhite isn’t a clear divide. jewish history doesn’t fit in with the white and PoC narrative that people are familiar with, so the answer isn’t clear. you can have blonde hair, blue eyes, pale skin, the works, and you’re no less jewish for it. so american standards of race don’t really work to describe the jewish experience.

and of course there are nonwhite jews who don’t pass for european in any way, so ethnicity is not race can be religion but is culture.

Bummer, sorry that happened. Whatcha doin now?

Currently unemployed. Living in a college town makes finding work extremely difficult. Everyone wants to hire students because they tend to be willing to do all the shit-work for almost no pay.

I’m also trying to write some short stories for publication, especially one for Weird Tales cause being published there would be the most awesome thing ever. But it’s very, very, very, very fucking hard for me to write without a deadline. I can’t seem to do it, or do it well, unless I’m under the wire.

The one I’m trying to work on for Weird Tales is about a girl who is very cold all the time, even though the temperature is pretty hot (90 degrees at night) and her body temperature is fine. She’s not showing any signs of hypothermia or anything, but she feels like she’s freezing all the time.

originalcharacterdoughnutsteel replied to your post “How’s work at the Amazon warehouse?”

Oh I’m sorry. I don’t have many followers so it never crossed my mind it would confuse anybody. You had to resign? What happen?

I was getting sick constantly, even had to go to the hospital at one point cause I had a sever migraine. I was also in constant, excruciating pain from my back and shoulders. It was awful. Not to mention that I became more depressed than I had been in years, and Boyfriend was one of the only reasons that I didn’t end up hurting myself.

The job itself wasn’t bad and the pay was pretty good, but it was a lot more than I could handle.
