if you dont have me on facebook you are probably not missing out on any posts but the comment section is important too lmao

I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior.  I had a real sword with me, too.  I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion.  Some woman walks by, with her little girl.  The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight.  But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.”  You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?”    And the girl looked around and saw me.  I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood.  So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?”  And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating.  Like she thinks I’m going to say no.  So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her.  And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.”  I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.

Anime-Alley storenvy has been brought to my attention in that they are selling my free! artwork off as charms WITHOUT my permission. This is really appalling, I have been forced to remove my illustration off all sites or edit a large watermark over it to protect my work since I simply cannot trust the community not to pull this sort of crap.

It’s common sense not to steal what does not belong to you. It is not the artists fault for wanting to share their work only to have them ripped off by people without a shred of decency. (Do not blame the shopkeeper for what the thief does).

After a bit of digging by my friend and I we found a lot of their items may also have been stolen from various artists and official artwork. PLEASE check if your artwork has also been stolen or if you can recognize the artists. I can absolutely attest that they stole my work and used without permission, and the fact that some of the items (particularly their Free! -Pic-Lil! - Pic-Lil! trading strap) are being sold at super cheap prices when they are very rare and expensive to obtain officially in Japan should alarm you.

Please do not support their thievery and profit of other people’s work and cheap imitation of official merchandize. Their products are also shoddy and poor in quality as seen in the photos.

If you can reblog this post, I would really appreciate this information being spread. Apparently they can be found at conventions and I’m just disappointed to know that they could be selling stolen artwork.

If you can email storenvy with a link to this post, or with any other information you have found to have their storefront taken down permanently that would be great. I do not want them to just simply take down my item and walk away with stealing other people’s work again, then nothing would be solved. Thank you so much.

Author John Scalzi was on a roll this morning (currently 7:14 AM, 26 Sept. 2014) with a tweet he found from some guy sending out an “ultimatum” to women to “make a choice” between feminism and, well, men like him. So Scalzi launched into a truly magnificent set of scorchers, which I’m posting here for the delectation of people everywhere.

Also: I would like to thank that guy for setting the ultimatum. It makes finding a boyfriend so much easier when the undesirable ones wear a placard identifying themselves.

some guys just don’t get it, do they? ;)

… well, they had no qualms about the Winter games in Russia, are we really surprised?

There was not enough international pressure on the IOS before the Russian wintergames. Only during those it built up. And it worked. I think we should be happy about this victory and it’s meaning for future games :)

Update September 24th - Victory! During Sochi 2014, thousands of All Out members called on the International Olympic Committee to change its rules so future host cities would never again be able to discriminate against any group - including LGBT people. Today, they did it! The IOC will add a clause reflecting Principle 6 of the Olympic Charter that says NO to discrimination.

This is beautiful and this is how everyone should be with their kids/grandkids/whatnot that have been born into alternative lifestyles.  In the end, love is all that matters.  Love them, and be a family.
