remember when Rabbit made a decorative and functional wall piece out of Pooh’s ass?
Yes I am Hollyweird, you are a gay now also bye.
so the nice folks at FCKH8.com decided to take this comic and put it in rainbow font and put their name on it without any source or indication that they didn’t create it. when questioned about crediting the artist, they got pretty sassy and have refused to do anything other than say “we’re looking up the artist” when you can find them by a quick google search of the first line of the poem. fun, right?
First off, not everyone is competent at google-fu. They say they’re trying to contact the person, they’re trying to contact them.
Second, “trying to contact” can cover lots of ground. As in, includes “we know who it is, someone in our group has emailed them, but the person writing on FB maybe doesn’t know who it is/ if they’re allowed to credit them because of whatever the fuck reason. Let’s quit tearing down our own, people.
Hi, I’m actually the original artist in question.
No one at FCKH8 contacted me at all via email, Facebook, Tumblr, DeviantArt, or any of the other various websites where the comic has been posted by me. From what I can tell, no attempt at contact was made prior to posting the design on their Facebook without credit to me.
Second, if “google-fu” includes typing a few lines of poem into an automatic search engine to find the original source before ripping the design and using it for yourself because you happen to be a pretty influential clothing company in the LGBT community, I would hope that a few would be proficient in it.
Why does this only have 1000 fucking notes?
BOOST THE HELL OUT OF THIS
THE CURRENT RESTRICTIONS ALSO PERTAIN TO ANYONE WHO HAS EVER SLEPT WITH A GAY OR BISEXUAL MAN, TOO
this is why we don’t have rights
Actually, it’s probably because society sees one gay archetype, negatively stigmatizes it, and assigns those behaviors and characteristics to all gay people. Oh and then there’s always the fun infighting where some gay people think they’re better than other gay people because they aren’t the “BAD kind of gay” (god forbid).
Go fuck a beartrap.
I think their prom theme should be “We don’t hate the gays, but we don’t want them here”
This makes me very happy and is what “religious” people should be doing. Her statements are accurate and fantastic.
another interview with more direct quotes from Megan can be found here.
Okay, so I was looking at this site trying to find a shirt I might like and happened across this one on this site. I’m horrified. I don’t know what to do, and I doubt one person saying anything will help. So I’m asking other people to maybe help out too. This is transmisogyny for PROFIT. Please don’t ignore this like everything else I post.
This is absolutely disgusting.
This is awful…
If I saw someone wearing this I would literally go up to them, grab them by the collar and punch them in the face repeatedly.
everyone should follow the link and let them know what they think of this transphobic t-shirt.
