A mini documentary on sex trafficking of Native women, with particular focus on Minnesota (Native women & girls are frequently sold on the shipping boats that travel around the Lakes, and have been for decades).

"People don’t see Native American women as humans. They see them as punching bags. Or something novel, like a new toy—it’s fun at first, but afterwards you throw it away." —Sarah El Fakahany, Sexual Assault Advocate at Minnesota Indian Women’s Resource Center

This is very sad, I didn’t know that the Native American women and girls were part of sex trade and prostitution.

it is a very big problem, much bigger than many people realize or want to admit, even among Native communities. if you go to a truck stop anywhere near tribal communities late at night, you will see young Native girls who have been trafficked. Minnesota, Arizona, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Oregon, & Washington are particularly bad. here’s some more resources on sex trafficking of Native women:

I want to know the long version of your post about moffat fucking up TDoTD. I'm on the exact same page as you are on the subject but I want to read your view on it :)

surfingwavefunctions:

Right, so the poster wanted to know why is it OK for RTD to destroy Gallifrey, but not OK for Moffat to bring it back, and I explained that it wasn’t the act of bringing back Gallifrey that was so wrong, it was doing it by inserting his own version of events in another writer’s work.

In this post, I’ll delve into all the ways TDotD did it wrong (and that’s where it’ll get long, but you asked for it hahaha), but first:

Why destroying Gallifrey was a good decision
First, as a curiosity, here’s what Steven Moffat said in 1999 when questioned on how a hypothetical return of Doctor Who should be carried out:

"I’d chuck out all gratuitous continuity because it’s dull — and all that yawn-inducing Gallifrey rubbish with it. I don’t care where the Doctor came from or why he travels   around the universe — I just want him out of those TARDIS doors and having adventures. Us kids want Narnia, not the wardrobe."

Ever hear of LookHuman? You probably know them as the website that has apparel and accessories with catchy slogans and phrases that fit right in with the tumblr community’s sense of humor.

Well, that’s because a large number of those catchy slogans and phrases, along with artwork, were made by tumblr users and used without credit or permission.

That’s right: LookHuman repeatedly and routinely steals/plagiarizes and profits off the work and words of others.

Don’t believe me? Take a look:

And this is just a short list of the examples I could find easily.

They have also stolen work from other websites as well:

LookHuman is a company that preys on artists. They profit off other people’s work. None of the money from their sales go back to the original artists or originators of the artwork, slogans, and phrases they use. None of these people were credited.

Bottom line: See a cute shirt with a catchy phrase on LookHuman’s website? Chances are it’s already being sold by the original poster.

Don’t like seeing companies like this thrive? Don’t allow them to.

Tell LookHuman that you do not support art theft and plagiarism, and demand that they stop engaging in these practices. Refuse to buy from their store until they change their policies and begin crediting the artists whose work they are profiting off of.

Protect artists.

Support artists.

Boycott art thieves.

scribeling:

Do you ever go to your fridge because you’re hungry, but once you open it you just stare inside and want none of it? You open your pantry but still nothing appeals to you. Maybe someone even comes and suggests something, and even though you don’t know what you want, you still know that everything they said isn’t right. So you just stand around confused and hungry for no reason.

That’s what it’s like to be an asexual with a sex drive.

This Romano-Egyptian mummy portrait is expressive, detailed and incredibly informative about fashion during the Flavian dynasty. Her hoop earrings look similar in shape to these with heads of maenads (female followers of the Greek god of wine).

Hey guys, so my immediate plans for Rose Under the Star have also kind of gone on hold, I think I’m going to be busy and won’t be able to make the second chapter for a while. So I’m just putting the first one up for you all to enjoy right now HERE.

Because of the queue function on smackjeeves, the rest of the 34 pages are going to be going up over the net like hour or so? So if you check back later the rest of the chapter will be up. Right now it’s only up to page 17 right now. 

Rose Under the Star is a story about teenaged girls with magical girl/superhero powers, dealing with real-life issues, depression, and relationships with parents. Check the warnings before deciding to follow it in the future, though. 

It’s all up now!!
