i need some of you to realize that call out culture, by design, rewards people who make the most outrageous & aggressive accusations, without regards to truth or context. it encourages people to misconstrue, to erase context, to outright lie. it feeds the instinct to attack, with or without cause. 
and that naturally enables certain types of people (terfs, exclusionists, bigots) who already have a vitriolic bandwagon behind them, to target & harass minority bloggers whose inclusive platforms they do not like to see becoming popular.
this has happened time and again, it has driven good people off this site, it is traumatic and unhealthy to everyone involved. purity culture creates an atmosphere of fear & paranoia, i am begging you to reexamine this attitude of mob violence in online spaces
#not a shitpost#serious post#harassment tw#seriously ya'll......this happens time and again and i'm getting fucking sick of it#do you remember i-am-a-fish? do you remember when you let ace & trans exclusionists target & harass i-am-a-fish off this site?#i see the same tactics being used time and again on different ace & trans & nb & gnc bloggers#and it WORKS! it works every time! people on this site fall for it every time and i am SICK of it#would you just. look at people's blogs and judge them on their recent and overall actions.#if people have been personally hurt by them then yes listen to victims#but don't take screenshots of posts from 2 years ago as the sacred truth#i see bloggers apologizing again and again for the same things and then realize 'oh shit they don't *want* an apology'#'these people just want more shit to throw at me. an apology is never going to be enough'#and also....let people grow? i'm proud of how quickly the standards of what is appropriate and respectful are changing & progressing#we are all constantly learning new things about what is and is not appropriate to say. and that's good!!#but the result is that what we considered appropriate a year or 2 ago we now know probably shouldn't be#so like. look at people's recent posts if you want to know their recent attitudes.#don't go attacking people for stuff they said years ago unless you have reason to believe they still believe & are perpetuating it#especially when so many people on this site are goddam teenagers holy shit#i honestly wonder if that is the reason so many people in online spaces are unwilling to admit they were wrong or change their opinions#bc we've erased the concept that you're allowed to be wrong and grow and update your opinion#so if you admit you are wrong NOW you're opening yourself up to be attacked years down the line#i've had to learn as a popular blog when to clapback and when to just...let it slide#often it's better to tell people off in private or block them. but callout culture is encouraging us to just.#automatically hit back fullthrottle in a way that puts our target at risk for public harassment#so i see a lot of crappy but lowkey comments getting people dunked into shitstorms and it's just....#a lot of time and energy spent harassing people who...aren't really the people you should be concerned about?#and who could probably learn & grow if given the right incentive?#idk i'm seeing a lot of stick and very little carrot.#and a lot of black-and-white thinking that leads to more violence than i'm comfortable having in an online community

so pixar is making a movie about two boys who have a secret that they share with each other and hide from everyone else so people don’t think they’re weird. i wonder what that could possibly be an allegory for...

have you considered that posting your shitty mspaint drawings on here and getting hundreds and even thousands of notes for them is disrespectful to actual talented artists who can barely get 10 likes on their art. just something to think about.
i'm not posting it for notes

AND i was correct, compared to the hole i dug myself into with drawing Zelda, drawing this gentle hooligan was TOO easy 🙆‍♂️🙆‍♂️
some of this was purely self indulgent because it took a lot less practice to be consistent LOL, at first how puckish his face came out kind of bothered me but honestly ? its true to his personality
the only bit that gave me a headache really was how scarred is TOO scarred ... iirc a fair few NPCs state that he's covered in them so at least i dont have to feel bad about hurting my boy fhjdkfjdk
thanks to @newtsnaturethings @aquaticpal @flydunes & @lynkhart for the help with poses when my brain imploded for a bit there lol ... and shout to the ladle run
look at this funky lad [marge with potato] i just think he's neat!

I've received some criticism for accepting commissioned posts, so I want to clarify
this blog & the content I produce is currently my only means of income
I'm saving to escape a toxic household
tumblr is notoriously difficult for content-creators to monetize
I accept ko-fi / paypal / commissions instead of reblogging 'sponsored' content (ads from fashion retailers or Adam & Eve) the way most blogs my size do. I don't want this space to feel impersonal; reader support allows me to avoid commercial advertising.
I'm doing my best. I've spent years putting in full-time hours on a blog that has only just started paying part-time wages. eventually I would like to make a living writing traditionally published content, but that's a long ways off. for now I'm just trying to get by, and trying to write fun and weird and (hopefully) surprisingly helpful content on the platform I have. please bear with me. I'm simply trying to turn an obsessive passionate hobby into something I can live (frugally) on.
#I'm a big fish in a small pond#but it turns out small ponds don't pay a living wage#which many of my fellow fish are unaware of#also...i reblog very few posts on my main#almost all the content you'll see on my blog is original#and there is a LOT of it#I enjoy this but I do bring a professional mindset to it#I work hard to stay organized. I have drafts folders and a regular schedule to help me keep on top of that and the inbox#I spend anywhere from 2 to 6 hours a day on this blog#back when the inbox was open and I was constantly answering messages I averaged about 7 hours a day#it was INSANE#as my audience grows i am trying to find ways to interact in an authentic way while still maintaining a balance#and it's frustrating how much resentment i get for trying to make a living off of this#i see other larger blogs built on reposting other people's content that are thriving on sponsored posts#*side eyes certain best of twitter accounts*#and i just...i try to put in the hours and do original content and interact with people in a way that feels honest and meaningful to me#and then i receive backlash from people willing to ignore that there are plenty of larger blogs on the site#that were built specifically to be monetized and have successfully done so. and I just#sometimes it is so hard to be a person on this site#easy to be a meme account. but not a person#'you're just doing something anyone can do and most people do for free'#I'm doing something I enjoy that started as a hobby and that I am now trying to turn into something resembling a career#I don't think that is automatically unethical
