Dude, I'm really excited to see your Elise! You're going to look absolutely perfect. I'm currently making an Elise for myself and Aveline for one of my friends to wear. I'm thrilled to be able to cosplay someone from AC (finally, right?) How's your progress going?

Yes, I’m excited about your excitedness! Hhaha
But damn, you’re making both Elise and Aveline? That must be sooo much work. No more progress on Elise from me, I won’t be able to work on her until after NYCC.

Hopefully I can make them both pretty quickly! Aveline is going to be a bit trickier than Elise. 
You’re going to NYCC? Lucky! Are you planning on cosplaying anything?

If the Winter Soldier was responsible for the Kennedy assassination and Magneto tried to STOP the Kennedy assassination then that must mean somehow Magneto lost a fight to a guy wITH AN ENTirE ARm MADE OF METAL

I honestly believe that other entertainment communities have these problems but don’t talk about them. I’m proud that when we find out someone is being completely disgusting, we don’t try to sweep it under the rug. We don’t let them back in to perform at the Grammies next year. We don’t pretend they’re too big to be packed up in a box and removed.

I’m not saying we couldn’t do a better job. But I’m proud of how the community has handled this. Particularly Laci, who is amazing.

All right Hank, seriously, you have GOT to stop congratulating yourself and your immediate circle of friends for being great when you’re actually… really not. You say you don’t try to sweep abuse under the rug - really? At what point, since over a dozen high-profile YouTubers were accused of sexual and emotional abuse back in March, have you addressed the issue without being heavily pressured to do so by hundreds of fans who look to you for guidance? Other than immediately reblogging (thus supporting) a non-apology made by Alex Day? At what point have you explicitly mentioned anything about the culture of creators abusing fans ON the platform that facilitated said abuse? (There ARE certain legal issues surrounding this, but those are easily navigated. Laci did it. Ann did it. I did it. Dozens of other people have done it.)

Laci’s video was good, but when have you acknowledged the work that literally hundreds of people have done to try and fight the incredible problem of abuse in the YouTube and Nerdfighter community, without the person having thousands of subscribers? Where has the praise of ‘amazing’ been for YouTube Speaks, a team of people who work pretty tirelessly to keep the discussion going? Where has the support been for the victims who are having to keep talking about the abuse they suffered, otherwise it will be forgotten?

You have said that you’re working ‘behind the scenes’ to try and create a safer environment for young fans to enjoy their favourite creators - why don’t you mention this ever? If you ARE working on it, you should be posting regular updates. It’s not some secret project that you get to do a big reveal on, there is absolutely no reason to keep victims under the impression that you’re doing nothing unless it is for the satisfaction of saying ‘Look, you were wrong about me!’ once you’ve actually got something in place. I understand that these things take time, but not saying anything while dozens of victims of abuse have gone almost entirely ignored is inexcusable.

You also say that you don’t welcome people who have done disgusting things back to VidCon - would you care to comment on Shane Dawson’s continued invitation? Not only does he post videos with rampant racism as a regular feature, but at previous VidCons he has made horrific jokes about paedophilia and race on stage in front of an audience of 7,000 impressionable young people? Why Sam Pepper was a VIP at this year’s VidCon despite videos already existing on his channel where he abuses and harasses women? Why Corey Vidal was on panels after allegations of abuse were made against him? I’m sure organising a convention is difficult and you can’t vet every guest, but please, don’t hail yourselves as ‘better’ than a mainstream event if you’re not. The fact that Nerdfighteria is an entertainment industry that is ‘nerdier’ than most does not automatically mean it is superior. (And the value that you place on intellectualism and nerdiness is a form of gross elitism that I won’t even go into here.)

You are right to be proud of the way the majority of the community is handling this. The community - those who actually know about the abuse accusations, at least - have largely been incredibly supportive of abuse victims, and vigilant in not accepting abusers back into the community. You’re absolutely NOT right to be proud of how you, John, and your follow high-profile creators are handling it. To think otherwise not only comes across as kind of a smug pat on your own back, but also erases everything the victims who were brave enough to come forward have been through since sharing their stories six months ago. There is no ‘we’ right now. It’s been ‘you’ and ‘us’ for months.

freaking! ^^ Go Lindsey!

Daniele Watts, an African-American actress who has starred in Hollywood films such as Django Unchained, was “handcuffed and detained” by Los Angeles police officers after being mistaken for a prostitute for kissing her white husband in public.

More on this story can be found here

"She said when she reminded the officer of his oath to "protect and serve," he replied, 'My job's not to serve people like you.' ”

'My job's not to serve people like you.'

'My job's not to serve people like you.'

'My job's not to serve people like you.'

Has everybody got that? Does anyone still think any of this bullshit ‘has nothing to do with race’? 

If you listen to the audio and all of the eyewitness reports you’ll see that they were doing a lot more than “kissing” with the car door open. She was very rude to officers and refused to show id. The officer’s words were uncalled for, but by when he says “people like you” he’s not referring to black americans, he’s referring to those who don’t cooperate with the law and are extremely rude to those who protect them.

I hate when people ask questions during movies like do you not understand that the movie purposly doesn’t tell you things in order to build suspense

i’ve seen some posts making this guilt trip of how the people who like to dress up as a sugar skull or the Catrina for halloween or whatever is racist and cultural appropriation.

Nah, it’s completely fine, as long as you are not totally ignorant about it or disrespectful, we Mexicans also celebrate Halloween, we break the piñata (which origin is chinese) And celebrate thanksgiving.

So it’s kinda hypocrate to say it’s cultural appropriation (which is not either way) cultures are beautiful and should/could be shared, there are indeed some aspects that can be racist and or appropriating, however dressing up as a sugar skull on Halloween is not in any way offensive.

It’s not like the sugar skull represents us, represents the deceased, and actually it’s just a joyful way to represent them. And the Catrina is just a social critic which became an icon later on for the day of the dead and Mexico. 

So fellow Mexicans, be open minded, don’t even hate, and share this rich culture we have with the rest of humanity, chill.
