please stop spreading misinformation and hopelessness because so, so many people are misunderstanding what bernie did today
bernie suspended his campaign because he has more important things to focus on such as dealing with the pandemic
he is still on the ballot and if your state hasn’t had a primary yet you can still vote for him to earn him delegates
there is some cause for concern that everyone reporting that he’s dropped out altogether can affect voter turnout, and we need to counteract this by spreading the word on what’s actually happening.
the fight is far from over. don’t give up.
hey y’all! If you have a free minute, I’d really appreciate if you took the time to fill out this research survey I’m conducting for my capstone project.
i’m studying asexuality, erasure, and the relationship that aspec people have with straight people & the queer community. I’m looking for data from all sexualities, but I’m hoping that this will research a large ace audience!
participating is completely anonymous and voluntary, and should only take about 10 minutes. thank you!
“Kudos for actually taking the criticism and breaking out of his rut.“
Except it wasn’t criticism, it was constant daily harassment. Look, I’ve been making comics for the internet for 10 years. I made comics for BuzzFeed for about two years, but people love to focus on those comics for some reason. They were simpler and quicker because I needed to publish at least one thing a day. And I loved it! I learned a lot!
At some point when I was getting really popular, Reddit and Tumblr decided they’d had enough and launched a targeted campaign against me. Tried to doxx me multiple times. Sent death threats. 4Chan threads started popping up for the sole purpose of spreading rumors that I’m a pedophile. All because I was making “lazy” comics and getting a salary for it.
Also, it’s always the same 10 or so comics that got posted as proof of my laziness. I made 1,008 comics at BuzzFeed (I counted). I worked really hard for my extremely mediocre salary.
Now that I’ve left BuzzFeed and don’t have deadlines anymore, I can spend more time on comics and only draw things I’m passionate about (like my dick). But make no mistake—if you like my stuff now, it’s because I pushed myself so hard as BuzzFeed. I’m not better now because of the “criticism” I got from trolls on the internet. Don’t fucking take credit for that.
So I used to make fun of this guy for using the same face over and over. And you know what? Kudos on this made for actually taking the criticism and breaking out of his rut.
This is also terrifying and I hate it.
you can still vote for bernie + your vote will still matter. it won’t influence the democratic nominee (who will be biden) but it might sway policies/progressive agendas at the DNC
this is what we call “propganda.” bernie sanders suspends his campaign AKA he wont spend money advertising himself anymore (bc he wants to help with the pandemic) but he’s still in the race. news sources JUMP on the fact that he’s stopped campaigning to tell everyone “WHOOPS he dropped out! better go vote biden! no other option bc bernie dropped out of the race :/” when he fucking didnt!
