Ableism [Update because holy cow!]How come I am updating an old journal? Because ever since I've written this, some stuff went down in the comments.Ableism [Update because holy cow!]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This journal was lying in the void of my journal history until a comment flared the discussion back up in full swing. While it started out as a decent discussion, it soon derailed into a sadly repetitive, agressive back-and-forth tennis game of words.
This is what I have learned about social justice:
It's a concept that strives for a society where everyone is equal. Minorities and lesser fortunate individuals are recognized and respected and oppression doesn't exist. Social Justice Allies work to try and diminish rude, offensive things so this feeling of oppression disappears. That's an awesome concept and it's difficult considering we're living in a desensitized society where we laugh at things very easily and possibly not realize the consequences or effects it has on others.
But as with a lot of things, there is a dark side to social justice. There are the ba

Yesterday was interesting. I found out that John Paul II was beatified by the Church and that Osama Bin Laden was killed by Navy SEALs. It was a very big day... all in all.
But there was something even more interesting that happened.
I got a couple notes recently involving some user on DA who is infamous for having an Encyclopedia Dramatica page... (though I never heard of her until a few days ago...) These notes were telling me about the troll drama she gets.
This user is =KessieLou.
I checked out her page... and gosh! I have so much to say about this person... based on what I've seen.
From what I can tell, she's obsessed with Oswald/Francine, (from "Oswald the Lucky Rabbit") and I mean, OBSESSED!!
But y'know... that's cool. We all have obsessions...
But here's the problem.
=KessieLou doesn't like Oswald/Ortensia... in fact, she hates the couple.
Why? Because they can't reproduce... because Oswald's a rabbit and Ortensia's a cat.
I need to point out, this girl has a

Common ass design flawI'll never understand why hardcore fighters are regularly depicted wearing high heels.Common ass design flaw1 year ago in Personal More Like This
For a moment, humor me. Find a pair of 6 inch stilhettos.
Now. Lift your foot and kick as hard as you can and see what happens.
Sure you have no balance so you probably fell on your ass, broke the heel and your ankle. These fighters are trained says you!
Look up the laws of kinetic friction, and momentum and pressure and GODDAMN COMMON SENSE.
I don't see why it's expected of these characters to even walk around for more than half an hour in those torture stilts, let alone do acrobatics that 97% of the population can't even do ALL WHILE WEARING THEM.
It doesn't matter how wide you make the heel, it doesn't make it easier to do gravity defying stunts in or make it much more comfortable. Maybe they're okay to stand in for 45 minutes rather than 30.
Everytime I see a movie with some femme fatale in Catwoman like stilhettos, I facepalm. If you watch, the stuntperson always has flat boots on because they'r

- Ubisoft makes clear that AC IV: BF won’t be like the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean”. They oriented themselves by historical facts and want to reflect precisely the reality of these times and aim to correct the falsified image of pirates of gory, blood-minded, barbaric and merciless freebooter. The game will be based on intensive researches and not on Hollywood’s imaginations. Therefore it will offer an independent reflection of the pirates.

Re:Rampant art 'theft' by Korean Drama siteHey guys, I've been seeing a lot of outrage over a particular website* which appears to be a type of blog about Korean drama shows, but if you type your name in the search bar, your art from here on dA is displayed. A lot of people are angry that their art is being reposted, and I'll address that in a moment, but more importantly, I must warn that you SHOULD NOT ACTUALLY VISIT THE WEBSITE, because it is supposedly loaded with viruses and malware. Plus, typing your user name in the search bar also seems to be the trigger that CAUSES your art to be reposted.

A wise man by the name of John Rambo once told us that we should 'Stay ballsy'. We should not let our fear overtake us, we should dive head in into obstacles and fight the demons without fear and without worries. Well I have taken that approach and incorporated it into my drawing, believe it or not I have never been confident about my artworks, even if it is something I spent 24 hours on I still have doubt whether its good enough to show or not, especially when it is for work and I know I am being judged on.. thats why it always takes so long for me to finish an art piece because I keep looking at it and try to fix stuff that probably no one would ever notic
A Brief History of TypographyA Brief History of TypographyA Brief History of Typography2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A little insight into the history of not only Typography, but also of written language. This article will be far from covering it all, but focuses on highlighting some of the major events and periods in the history of Typography.
From the Greek roots τύπος typos = "impression" and -γραφία -graphia = "writing".
~ 30th Century BC – 200 AD
Or "Script of Nails / Cuneiform Script" is probably the oldest form of written text. This calligraphic form of writing was carved into clay tablets.

~ 800 BC – present
This is the basic alphabet used in all Western languages. The Romans based it among others

Ignore all of that and move on without bringing up the situation in the future.Rationalize without any other actions.Keep it to yourself and yourself only.Pretend it's a small deal.
What NOT to do:
Flip out and call the culprit's names, cast blind assumptions and death threats, and insult their intelligence like a middle schooler. (If you classify that as trolling, you're doing it wrong; there's a difference between trolling and bullying. Here's your homework assignment: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Trolling&defid=4250942 )Command your fanbase and/or friends to jump in and add fuel to the fire.Bring it up every often.Be persistent and not move on.Disregard anyone that disagrees with you by giving them the same treatment as the culprit.Stalk the culprit.Prove that you're no better than what you claim the culprit to be.

As =Whitefeathur discussed in her journal on this subject, the uneducated animal-lovers all crowd around species who are not even endangered, in the name of blind animal favoritism, meanwhile this beautiful animal did not receive the protection it desperately needed, and we will never see another black rhino alive again.
Let this be a lesson to those out there protecting common, beloved species rather than actually endangered ones.
Do your research - animals out there do need your support, and it's not always the species you love best. Support them anyway, and don't waste time and effort protecting species that are stable just because you admire them.
I can't believe this species died out in my lifetime.

The Golden DigiCompassSomething interesting I saw on WtW I thought I'd share.The Golden DigiCompass9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Credit goes to the folks there for finding and translating the goods.
Hiroyuki Kakudou, the JP director of Adventure, 02 and X-Evolution, posted on Twitter some interesting thoughts regarding the Digimon of Adventure. Something that will probably fuel head canons to come even more.
He viewed the Digimon Partners of Adventure as the souls of the DigiDestined and that their own personalities were similar/the opposite to the children's. He goes on to compare this relationship to the Daemons and Humans of the Golden Compass.
He compares 02 with The Dagger of Mystery, referencing the D3. I've not read The Dagger of Mystery so I can't comment on similarities here, but I have seen the Golden Compass and logic fits quite well. I recall some folks pointing out this similarity before with the Compass, and it's honestly kinda cool how one of the original staff makes a similar comparison.
