Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.

This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. 

Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.

In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.

I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.

Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

-Morgan

P.S. Signal boost this if you’re able.

“ limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more”

 limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more

 limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more

 limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more

 limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more

DO YOU WANT THIS? NO?? CLICK THE LINK. REBLOG.

Why should I apologize for the monster I’ve become? No one ever apologized for making me this way.

Okay yes hello.

As tomorrow is 9/11 and stuff I think its important to say the following thing, as it happens almost every year.

Don’t send America blogs 9/11 asks

And God Forbid make a ‘really cool 9/11’ fic and share it around.

Its distasteful.

Seriously.

Just don’t.

Don’t give the hetalia fandom a bad rap.

PLEASE READ THIS POST

See this statue? It’s located at the Glendale Central Library. 
Big deal right? Yes. Yes it is. 

She stands here today as a memorial for the victims of the sexual slavery and abuse committed by the Japanese imperial military during WWII. Right now, Japan is running a petition to take her down.

We cannot let this happen.

Every Wednesday, the woman of Korea that were used as sexual slaves protest and cry out. However, Japan refuses to acknowledge their suffering. There have been no apologies and no recognition.

Please, please don’t let them get rid of her. Their pain deserves to be recognized and sympathized.

Luckily, There is a petition going on to save the girl and allow her to continue standing in Glendale CL. The link can be found here and you can read more about everything that she stands for here.  

Thank you so much for reading this. Even if you can’t sign this, please signal boost so other people will. 

[[A big thank you to tumblr user did-we-just-marry-thedevil for bringing this to my attention]]

If this statue is taken down, we are erasing the memories and pain of the thousands of Korean (and Chinese) sex slaves during WWII. As a Korean female myself, this is even more disheartening.

Please signal boost.

한국어 : 글렌데일 중앙도서관 앞에 있는 위안부 소녀상을 아세요?

위안부 소녀상은 세계 2차대전 당시 일본군의 성노예로 희생된 위안부 여성들을 기억하기 위해 만들었습니다. 하지만 지금 일본은 소녀상을 철거하기 위해 청원서를 넣으려고 합니다. 매 주 수요일마다 위안부에서 살아남으신 분들이 저항하고 있습니다. 그러나 일본은 그 분들이 겪은 고통[위안부]을 부정하고 어떠한 사과도 하지 않고있습니다.

위안부 소녀상을 철거하지 말아 주세요.

그들[위안부 생존자]들은 기억되고 동정받을 가치가 있습니다.

다행스럽게도 소녀상을 도서관 앞에 보존시키려는 청원서도 존재합니다.

당신이 이 글을 리블로그 해주시면 큰 도움이 됩니다.

So my facebook friend just posted this pic with this text….

Well, I just witnessed blatant racial injustice with my own eyes. I was getting in my car after exiting a store when a young black man stumbled past me and collapsed against the store wall. When I got out to see if he was okay, a group of white people came rushing over, one of whom was a 20-something white woman who declared in distress, “I ran a red light and hit him with my car!” People immediately assured her that SHE would be okay, meanwhile the young man is writhing in pain on the ground, pants leg torn, tears running down his face. When the police arrived and the young woman explained what happened, it was suggested to her that maybe the light had been yellow and that the young man had “darted out into the street into her path.” I was floored. I said, “But she just SAID she ran the red light and hit him in the intersection!” 

The police officers then led the young woman away and began talking with her privately in low tones. When the paramedics FINALLY got there I was surprised at the hostility they showed towards the young man. One blonde female EMT (shown in the photo) suggested that he couldn’t be THAT hurt if he was able to walk from the place where he was struck to the sidewalk where he finally collapsed. White bystanders commented several times about “What that poor girl must be going through.” I was the only one who commented on what the young man must be going through, what, with his mangled leg and all. I am absolutely positive that in the end “that poor girl” will be absolved of all wrongdoing and be able to go on her merry way. After all, she just ran a red light and slammed her car into the body of some black kid on a bike, right?

And people wonder why black people are so angry and want to break shit.

friendly reminder that studies have shown that white people do not empathize with Black people and we (including medical personel) also think Black people feel less pain

If you use YouTube, you need to know this.

You’ve heard all these rumblings about Net Neutrality over the past several months. Let’s get real: this is about controlling online video. It is estimated that by 2017, video content will account for 80-90% of all global Internet traffic.

This isn’t just about not being able to binge-watch a series on Netflix. It’s about the future of online video as we know it.

Whether your YouTube channel is home to daily vlogs, short films, or just that one video from when the cinnamon challenge seemed like a good idea, you’re a video creator. Your content and comments help shape this community. Let’s keep it that way.

Net Neutrality means that your YouTube videos reach people at the same speed as clips from last night’s episode of the Tonight Show. It means a level playing field for video creators looking to reach an audience. But new Net Neutrality rules could mess that up.

Here’s the deal: Telecommunications companies already charge us to access the Internet through our homes and our phones. New FCC rules could allow them to also charge content providers (like YouTube, Netflix, and even PBS) for access to our eyeballs. It could create a fast lane for Jimmy Fallon’s clips, and slow lane for your YouTube videos.

It is really important that the FCC understands that online video creators care about Net Neutrality. Even if you’ve only ever uploaded ONE VIDEO, you are a creator and you have a voice.

If you can, please add your channel to our petition. We’ll deliver this to the FCC in September and demonstrate that the online video community cares about this issue.

Sign the petition, then spread the word.

So…. Remember the Yong Author Challenge we did last year? The one where every person who sent in a story got feedback from a published author and the winners got their story published in an anthology (and paid for the story)?

This one. It’s pretty fantastic. If you haven’t checked it out, you should, because the stories are amazing.

Well…. We’re doing it again.

I am pleased to announce the Harmony Ink Young Author Challenge 2015!

  • Submissions between 2,000 – 10,000 words will be considered.
  • Main characters should be 14 – 18 years old and can be gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or anywhere else on the LGBTQ+ spectrum, including still in the process of working out their sexual/gender identity.
  • The story should portray positive LGBTQ+ characters who grow or change for the better in some way. See the general Harmony Ink submission guidelines for more information.
  • Authors can be between the ages of 14 – 21.
  • If the author is 17 or younger, a parent or legal guardian will have to sign the publication contract should a story be accepted.
  • Selected stories will be published in an anthology to be released in both paperback and eBook formats.
  • Accepted authors will be paid a flat rate based on story length. Payments will range from $25 – $55.
  • Feedback from at least one published author will be provided for all submissions.

We had amazing submissions last year and I can’t wait to see what we get this year.

Go forth and write!

Hi! I’m Rabbie, I look like above ^. I’m 21, I go to college, and I’m in a tight situation.

The amount of money I get per week is not enough to cover my utilities or my medication. I’m hoping to get help up to ~$200 a month while I work hard to get a job! In addition…
