(originals by Flikkerlicht. I like my versions best ;) )

I really don’t like most repurposed art, but it is sourced and the originals are coddling.

Says the person coddling a fucking thief by calling the art they stole ‘repurposed’.

"Coddling"

This just in, anti bullying messages are coddling. You fucking hypocritical brats.

Yes, they sourced the creator, but did they get the permission to change them? Probably not.

Of course they didn’t. Flick has said they reported them for stolen art. They’re reporting every person that has stolen their work like this.

If you play with their work without permission, you are a fucking art thief who will be reported. It’s time you all learn that you cannot steal shit just because you’re mad.

I actually don’t give a shit about the art being “stolen” because I don’t believe art is owned by anyone. 

But I do take issue with the fact that you took something that was about love and tolerance and turned into something about being closed-minded and bigoted. 

That really sucks and people should throw tomatoes at your stupid fucking face.

Georgian First Grader Beaten and Sexually Assaulted by Male Classmates…School Says Boys Just “Rough Housing”

Valdosta - Three first grade boys kept a female classmate outside after recess by hiding in the woods, pushing her face first into the ground. The victim, whose name is being withheld, has suffered scarring to the right side of her face from broken tree branches and rocks that she was allegedly assaulted with both physically and sexually.

The victim was able to escape the male classmates after fifteen minutes of torture, running into a fifth grade classroom and alerting a teacher of what had happened. The principle of the elementary school said he had a “man to man” talk with the boys and their parents, giving them two days of suspension. He neglected calling the local authorities claiming “it did not seem like a police matter, just simple rough housing gone a little too far”.

The parents of the victim are looking to press charges on the boys for sexual and physical assault, as well as a possible law suit against the school district. District superintendent was not available for comment. 

This is called rape culture you guys. The girl was 7 years old and they called it “rough housing” between boys.

This is called “I want a popular text post, and I think that if I make the source say CNN then people will just assume that it’s legit even though there’s no actual link to an article.”

This is a fake post. The source link is just a link to CNN’s main page, not to an article about anything like what OP describes. Go ahead, google the headline. The only result is this post. Try searching the story on CNN, where it supposedly came from. Again, you’ll come up empty.

If authorities were not naming the girl involved, a picture of her certainly wouldn’t accompany any article on the subject. In fact, that photo is of young Makayla McEvoy, an Australian girl, after she was attacked by a Kangaroo on New Year’s Day of 2012.

For some reason, dropmycumberbritches threw caution (and their integrity) to the wind and made something up, apparently thinking that nobody would take the time to check their story. While it’s very true that tumblr is full of incredibly gullible people, there are those who understand the virtue of fact checking posts like this before spreading them around.

But if I’m judging by the statements made by people who have already reblogged this post, the fact-checkers are vastly outnumbered by people who believe everything they read.

How sad that people would just make this shit up… :(

What else did you expect from a “liberal goddess”?

Rape culture is writing fanfic about a little girl being raped so you can push your extremist agenda

Bolded for emphasis.

I often wonder if the people who say bronies "steal" MLP from little girls and "prevent the target audience from getting anywhere near it" ever realize how stupid they sound. It's like they think of bronies as an army of men who keep troops posted outside every little girl's house and in every department store toy section to scare girls out of watching the show and physically form a fat, sweaty, Cheeto-snarfing blockade between girls and the merch. While tipping their fedoras and going "M'lady."

tenaflyviper:

They just think that the emotional appeal of “Think of the children!" works in a context where there is literally no interaction between them, and the older fan base.

No one is going to their homes and changing the channel, or turning off the television, every time ponies come on.

No one is blocking their way in stores - if anything, I have personally witnessed people moving out of the way, and patiently waiting for the girls to choose their toys first.  I do this myself.  I also used my knowledge of the blind bag numbering system to make sure a little girl got the Pinkie Pie she wanted.  The stores keep these toys plenty stocked, at least where I live, and there is certainly no “shortage”.

No one is keeping these children from playing with the toys, talking about them with their friends, and just generally enjoying them.

When people complain about how “easy” questionable material is found, one first has to wonder what kind of a parent lets a little girl on the internet all by herself in the first place.  If you wouldn’t feel comfortable with your child running around downtown by themselves, then they probably shouldn’t be on the internet by themselves.  Secondly, when it comes to Tumblr, anything from blogs marked as “NSFW” will not show up in Google’s Safe Search.  There is also the Safe Search Wrap Up project that is already clearing out stray images that also shouldn’t be showing up in Safe Search.  I’d say they’ve already done a pretty fair job

I don’t think these people realize that not only are children not particularly bothered when someone older likes the same things they do, they usually think it’s pretty great.  Know why?  Because it makes them feel important, because hey - they like something a grown-up likes!  A while back, I was at a store browsing through the nail polish while I waited for Morty, and a little girl sitting in a cart noticed my Fluttershy “Yay!” shirt, and excitedly exclaimed,

"Mommy, she’s got a pony on her shirt!”

So I smiled, and said, “Yup!  She’s one of my favorites!”

And she just had the biggest smile on her face, and it was just the most adorable thing ever, and it made me glad I had chosen to wear that particular shirt that day (even though I later found a hole in it, right on the boob, that thus rendered it unwearable). 

I’ve also become the “cool aunt” to my nephews, because I also watch Adventure Time and Regular Show, just like they do.  They always ask me if I’ve finished that sculpture of Mordecai and Rigby that I’ve been working on (or rather, forgetting to work on), and we’ve now taken to greeting each other with the characters’ trademark, “Oooohhhhhhhhh!”.

Not only is no one “taking” anything “away” from little girls, the greatly increased viewership has ensured that there will be that much more show for these girls to watch.  The existence of the older members of the fan base has also greatly increased the variety of characters that toys are being made of, as well as increased the quality of the toys being produced.  Don’t you think a little girl would much rather have this Fluttershy…

…as opposed to this Fluttershy?

I highly doubt the 4th Dimension plushes would exist if there hadn’t been feedback from older fans.  And 4th Dimension isn’t the only company producing pony plushes besides Funrise.  As I’ve also previously mentioned here (where you’ll also note that it mentions how Bonnie Zacherle had originally intended for the My Little Pony franchise to be for both girls, and boys), there are also characters getting toys that surely wouldn’t have otherwise.  You don’t think any little girls might like a pretty Nightmare Moon with glittery wings? 

image

When I was a kid, I actually liked Pizzazz more than Jem, because I thought she looked so much “cooler”.  Also, as I mentioned here, it was older fan feedback that allowed for the production of a prettier Princess Celestia toy, with wings that didn’t look absolutely terrible because they clashed with the body, as was seen in the original toys.

Not to mention that she has a pearly sheen, and now has golden, sparkly footwear.

Especially given that pretty much all the “horror stories” you hear about bronies negatively interacting with younger fans are written in such outlandish ways that any outside observer with half a brain could see that they’re a load of horse hockey, I have my doubts that the little girls are being “affected” at all.  If anything, they’re now able to buy costume pieces (nice ears, wigs, and horns) that wouldn’t have been made otherwise, and have older siblings that are more than happy with helping them create their Halloween costumes.  There are families that now have an easier time deciding what to watch together.  There are brothers and sisters who can agree on what toys to play with together.  There are now couples who share a common interest, and girlfriends that can enjoy the fact that their boyfriend also likes something that’s not overtly “macho”.

Higher ratings = more show.  Fan feedback = better toys, and a larger variety of them.  Frankly, I’d say the little girls are making out like little bandits here.

Sums up their personalities pretty well.

Eddy: I can achieve anything
Edd: there’s a logical way to achieve what I want
Ed: there’s nothing standing in my way

Eddy hopping over the fence indicates his willingness to “cheat” the system, or to take a shortcut. Much like his schemes, it might end up being more work, but in his mind, cheating is the best way to get ahead.

Edd goes the neat and logical way, he’s straight forward. BUT, note that he closes the gate behind him rather than leaving it open. He’s incredibly meticulous and even if it’s more convenient to leave it open for anyone coming in behind him, he has to leave things neat, tidy and as he found them.

Ed is also is straight forward, he in fact is using the MOST direct route. But this route is one no one else would consider because it seems completely nonsensical. Which sums him up pretty well. The fact that it works for him is also fun to note. In general his earnestness and determination carries him through situations that most people would be stopped by.

I honestly never thought I’d see a critical analysis of Ed, Edd, and Eddy

PROUDLY UNLADY LIKE SINCE 1984. 

I just want to go to this guy’s house with a beer and smoking a cigarette and fart in his chair while sitting with my legs uncrossed and showing off my new tattoos and then when his wife comes home I want to put on some porn and have sideways sex with her while screaming HAIL SATAN.

Who is this douche?

wanna know what annoys me? When people are all like "we need more POC magical girls" Yeah would be great and stuff but I think you're all forgetting that most of the girls or guys in magical girls are born and raised in japan so naturally there wouldn't be any POC. It really gets on my nerves.

Beat it, you ignorant racist fuck. 

Funny thing is that the anon is probably a POC himself/herself.
