Check out gailsimone schooling fools on accepting criticism. And honestly, if you’re featured on eschergirls so often that you’re threatened by them, it might be time to maybe look at why that is and what that means rather than throw a hissy fit about it and run and tell mommy to make people be nice to you.

I am going to say it absolutely as clearly as I can, I am with Ami and @escher_girls to the end on this one.

I have been in Randy’s spot, I have overreacted to criticism, especially in the early days of my career. It can be hard to see your work mocked or criticized.

But overreacting is a failure of the CREATOR in question, not the critic. And bullying and threatening readers with fake legal nonsense is just wrong and grotesque. 

Randy Queen, you are wrong. The best course of action for you is an IMMEDIATE and sincere apology.  Leave these people ALONE.

Once your work is out there, it is subject to criticism like the work of every other creator since time began. You are in no way special or immune.

This is already not going well for you and it’s only going to escalate. Drop your ridiculous threats right now and apologize. It’s the only way to salvage anything out of this.

A word about bronies.

saintcheshire:

So I just got back last night from a brony convention in San Francisco. I was working a booth for a vendor friend, and let me tell you what happened:

We met a little girl who was there with her family. She got a button drawn at our booth, told us all about her favorite…

The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily so they can meet their quota of getting FREE FOOD donated every day to abused and neglected animals in their shelters.
It takes less than a minute (only about 15 seconds actually) to go to their site and click on the purple box titled, ‘Click Here to Give - it’s FREE!’. Every click gives about .6 bowls of food to sheltered dogs. You can also click daily!
Keep in mind that this does not cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising. [via.]
Go to the website HERE.

It’s just a click… takes about 1 or 2 seconds.

there’s no pop-up ads or anything on the site
just click it once and you’re done

if all of my followers click, it’s more than a few thousand meals so.. please?

I do this every day, and have since college.  I click every single one of GreaterGood buttons, and I have never gotten a pop-up or virus or anything.  It takes seconds, and you’re saving lives.  Heck, do it from home AND work.  Make it count.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS.
Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.
Scarleteen is invaluable.
And Scarleteen needs your help.
During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.
This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support. 
This is devastating.
If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.
Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.
And whether or not you’re able to donate at this time, please signal boost this and spread the word. Scarleteen does incredible, very necessary work, and they need our help.

SMUT PEDDLER 2014: LADYPORN CONQUERS EARTH. It’s happening, you guys. It’s on.

Donate to this fabulous kickstarter and receive the first ever published dirty comic of mine! I was real nervous about this one, and it’s short, but I hope you’ll like it. The lineup of creators on this thing is bananas - Danielle Corsetto, Jess Fink, Megan Gedris, Erica Henderson - it’s a star-studded porntacular.

AS AN INCENTIVE, and this is crazy - send me proof that you donated to the Kickstarter, and I will send you my fanfiction.net page from 2003. It’s some truly awful erotica I wrote as a horned-up 14-year-old. The Harry Potter one has two chapters. I ain’t kiddin’.

Email your proof to kateleth at gmail dot com. A screencap will do nicely.

GET SMUTTY

Yo, you guys have already pledged over $850 to read my teenage fanfiction on behalf of supporting Smut Peddler. I couldn’t love you more. Keep sending to that e-mail!

Isn’t that interesting.
Tumblr emailed me to tell me they deleted my post calling out the dude who sent me a rape threat.
But hasn’t banned the dude who sent me a rape threat, even though I reported him.
I guess Tumblr just wants to make their site safer for people who send rape threats than those who receive them.
I guess it’s not considered harassment to send rape threats, but if you name the person who sends you rape threats, you are harassing them.

Due to an extremely deadly winter here on the Northern Plains, a winter which has claimed the life of a tribal member, we are raising funds to deploy 20 home pilot projects to receive multi-fuel stoves to replace dependency on fossil fuels to heat our homes (namely propane). We will grow our fuel source and manufacture our own fuel sources in the immediate future to start this shift to renewables. We send our condolences to the family of the lady we lost to a home which could not afford to be heated. Google “Standing Rock propane crisis” for more info. email us at lastrealindians@gmail.com with any questions. We thank you genuinely. Lila wopila.

There are 7 days left to donate to the Heating the Rez campaign! You can still contribute here: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/heating-the-rez

So I’d love to have some more Sheldon merchandise made but, I want to find out what people actually want and importantly, would actually buy. Some of these things can be expensive to make so please be honest as to whether you would be willing to spend your own money or not.

Thank you!
