I’m going to keep reblogging this.
YES YES YES YES ALL OF THIS YES YES.
Shove this post down the throat of every single school board member and politician.
I like Doctor Who, Sherlock, Supernatural, MLP:FiM, PewDiePie, Markiplier, SkyDoesMinecraft, Merlin, Pirates of the Caribbean, Minecraft, Harry Potter, The Lion King, etc. Also, I am a good drawer, so if there's something related to the first four fandoms mentioned that you want me to draw, just feel free to ask! (Unless you request it, it probably won't be colored, but feel free to ask for shading, because I'm quite good at that!)
This is disgusting.
So this is the association my mum used to be chairman of and i used to spend a lot of time volunteering for them and still do as much as I can to spread the word and as tragic as it is these are the images the public needs to see to understand that there is a problem in our society and that we need to start educating ourselves and others to try and combat the ignorant actions of others. While it’s nearly impossible to open the eyes of everyone I hope this post and others like it both on Tumblr and other forms of social media will at least make some people stop and think next time they plan on harming any disabled person either physically or verbally.
I know this is a really scrambled comment but this is a weird, raw, touchy subject for me and I really wanted to put my perspective out there and let people know you should never look down on someone who is disabled. I know tons of people deny ever doing so but even if you meet someone with a social disability like Autism or Asperger’s I hope you know they’re fully aware of your tone or voice or your facial expression when you speak to them and even though you aren’t saying anything outwardly rude or offensive, how you say what you’re saying to them let’s them know you feel uncomfortable around them. I feel like that still doesn’t make sense but it does in my head I just can’t write it down physically. I’ll start to peace out now but long story short autistic people and those with similar social disabilities are incredibly perceptive. More perceptive than anyone else can understand. They know when you’re mocking them and it hurts them.
Okay I’m done, sorry, bye.
So let me tell you about the shittiest parent on the motherfucking planet.
I work at a grocery store and this man comes in with his 11 year old son. He buys a pack a cigarettes and a two cases of beer. The son was holding a two dollar drawing pad and placed it on the belt and I guess the dad didn’t notice it at first but when I was about to scan the pad he asked where’d it have come from and turned towards the kid and asked “Did you put that shit up there?”. He told me to put it back and then told his 11 year old child that he “ain’t paying for that gay ass notebook.”. So I looked at the kid, who was close to tears and saying how he ran out of paper at home and my heart broke. So I gave the pad to him, for free, and told the dad I would take care of it. I gave the kid some tokens for a game outside and said I would look forward to buying some of his drawings and paintings when he’s all famous. He kids face was so priceless and I thought everything was good. But then, about 10 ten minutes after giving the kid his notebook, I walked outside and saw this. The drawing pad all ripped up and tossed on the pavement. I could only imagine what happened in the parking lot, but I know that that poor kid heart is fucking ripped apart, just like this pad.
I’m fucking horrified that there are parents like this, who, just because it’s not masculine or gender specificthey won’t let their children follow their true passions or explore interests that lead to their happiness. Even more so, I’m horrified that parents don’t care about the fine arts anymore because it doesn’t have job security. Since when did it ever matter to a child if their passion makes them money or not? Parenting is about supporting whatever makes your child happy. Have some fucking consideration for your child’s wants not your homophobic and anti-art ideals.
Everybody needs to see this
it’s back, and i will not NOT reblog it v.v ever
what is gay about drawing anyway? you’re holding a pencil and sliding it over a bloody piece of paper, it’s not like you’re trying to suck a cock
