I want to make something perfectly clear. In no way should anyone support, condone, or tolerate bullying. I assume we've all read the Amanda Todd story. This is an extreme example of the drastic effect bullying can have on a young persons' life.
That being said, I would like to make a request from all of you out there on dA, Tumblr, Facebook, etc.:
If you see bullying, please, for the love of god, report it. Better yet, why don't you try to comfort the victim. It's really incredible what just a few small words can mean to a tortured soul.
Oh, and one more thing: This deviation is far from "Brilliant" or "Smart". It's really nothing special.
Edit: Wow, 1500 views in two days? Thank you for taking an interest in this situation. And special thanks to all the people that faved. This Deviation may be no good, but thanks for that support too!
Entry for I Am Not For Sale[link] Sex trafficking of teenager and women is the subject I pick.
I'm glad they extended the deadline so there are still time, you will also donate by entering~
Trafficking is, unbelievably, scarily organized! I found lots of story references in Polaris Project and a bit more from the Human Trafficking Project Blogspot. But my initial reason to enter was a local newspaper clipping I had a couple of years ago and the case happened in area of my hometown is very scary to think until now. While I'm here complaining of how slow the internet or how cold today is, someone my age might be going through perfectly different problems....the more I think, the more I treasure what I have now and every each time I complain >_>
--- Story of the picture if you are interested --- I remembered how my uncle used to collect birds and prefer the one who can sing rather than pretty. Hearing birds sing in the morning also an experience (because I woke up late xD). The girl based on Chinese nightingale, its a common cage-bird, very active and excellent singer but secretive and difficult to see. Undergoing the hard times, she might still be pretty but I'm not sure if she still be able to sing, for help at time she need it the most...
Title is inspired by Disney Cinderella, I like that song ^^ (and isn't Cinderella story also some kind of abuse? hahah)
It is said trafficking still around and wealthy because there are orders coming in. There are people actually ordering...oh god. Thank you for reading my ramble I realized I'm kind of lame in these kind of things -_-
Tribute to MJ. When I was a kid, I listened him a lot... so, in part, I grow up with him.
I'm not a fan, I know that as person he wasn't ok (as many artists that we know), he was a drug-addicted, he had like a "people-phobia", he was charged with many counts of child abuse, and we could list many other mental disorders but he was one of the best artists of the XX and XXI centuries.
