Yes, comments are disabled on her YouTube video. But honestly, why does everyone see this as a "problem?" I know it's common wisdom to assume that if you hide comments you're "scared" of receiving criticism or some other bullshit, but think beyond that please.
1) Comments enabled would just allow hate speech and actual sexism to persist because the internet has already determined that everyone hates Anita. No matter how thoughtful or constructive your criticisms might be, YouTube's 500 character limit isn't the best place to give it, plus it would be drowned out by the trolls and haters spewing negativity.
2) Her videos are also meant more as a teaching tool, not a vlog series, and as such are potentially going to be used in classrooms. Probably a good idea to keep nasty comments of homophobia, racism, sexism, etc off of the main source of the video. I think that's backed up beautifully by having her tell parents to preview the

Pacific RimPlotPacific Rim2 years ago in Personal More Like This
An alien rift opens up in the pacific ocean and giant monsters start pouring out. After failing to stop them with our usual tanks and planes, the world unites to make giant mech robots punch the monsters to death. Because the robots are so big and complex, controlling them alone is too intense for a single human brain to comprehend. So mech robots are piloted by two crew members who mind meld with each other to share the power load. The better in-synch the pilots are with each other, the better the robots perform. The movie follows the events as monster outbreaks increase and a last ditch effort to close the portal is put into motion.
There is a LOT to get through in the movie in terms of world building. Sometimes so much so that you don't get a chance to absorb it all in. Likewise, since there's so much going on the characters don't get very developed either. Outside the 3 main characters, the rest of the characters are simplified ste

I watched the first episode and I won’t spoil anything for you here. Suffice to say it was a little more lackluster than I anticipated it would be for a season starting episode. I understand they’re setting up a LOT of stuff (with the 3 year time jump), but overall I felt kinda blah about this episode. I hope it gets better. I think the next episode is going to examine what happened to Korra during those 3 years and that sounds like it’s gonna be awesome. So here’s hoping!
DC Apologizes for Offensive T-Shirts
This little news story broke out over the week. DC unveiled 2 new official t-shirts. The first depicted Superman kissing Wonder Woman with the title “SCORE!” over his head. The other was a Batman shirt that read “Training to be Batman’s Wife.” I have less issue with the batman shirt than I do the Wonder Woman shirt, because it’s pretty indicative of wh

I’m sorry that the last journal seemed to upset so many people. It was meant as a cleansing of views and people around me that might introduce toxicity in my life. But I can totally understand how some people took it very personally, or felt that I worded it poorly. You are absolutely right, and for that transgression I am sorry.
With that in mind, I felt it might be a good idea to just give a refresher course on important personal rules, opinions, or views I have so that we’re ALL on the same playing field on where/what/who I stand for. So this is going to be a very BLUNT and DRY list of stuff about me and my opinions. I hope that it helps clear any confusions and I will be happy to elaborate on anything if you ask me in the comments section.

Someone linked me this video after seeing my Fashion Savvy Samus comic, and it quickly became apparent that a LOT of people defending Samus’s god-awful rocket boots were using THIS as their basis for argument. So, since this is the internet, I’m gonna respond to this video interjecting whenever I hear something I agree or disagree with.
1. I agree that we should separate Other M Samus from the rest of cannon based on the fact that it was conceived over a retcon of the character.
2. I agree that a lot of the hatred for Other M Samus came from her BADLY localized English translation and voice acting. I’ve stated many times that if the game had been left in Japanese with English subtitles, I sincerely doubt as many people would’ve had a problem with her “monologuing” than they do with the English version.
3. I do not agree that you should be “offended” that mal

For many of us, the first “art gallery” to command our attention (and constant, even daily, monitoring) in our
lives existed within the pages of the local newspaper. It was called “the movie section” and its ever-changing movie
advertisements were like little frames that rarely contained less than pure magic for young imaginations.
The Film Poster has existed since the earliest days of silent movies and the pulse-elevating excitement of the
first sight of an upcoming adventure, action, or sweeping love story that we might have only “heard good things about”
still packs a psychic punch throughout movie lovers today.

Many people asked if I had a bad experience on there, or was harnessed or something, but no, nothing that exciting. I simple just couldnt keep up. Between drawing and writing every waking minute I have and trying to manage my time with my kids, and just finding time to sleep, it became a task rather than fun.
I've never been good at social media, and with the increasing amount of workload, it became one more email to check in the morning, one more argument to side with, and one more contribution to be guilted into. It also opened up doors to people who do not know me at all ( or cared to), contacting me for reasons that shouldn’t involve me in the first place. Much like twitter, it makes you become too easily accessible to anyone and anything, at anytime.

My very special New years Eve...My very special New years Eve...My very special New years Eve...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This year I was not in the mood for party on new years Eve so my girlfriend and me decided to spend the time on the cat house. So we had a special time and were able to calm down the kitties when the huge fireworks started.
We celebrated with highly overpriced Fiji Water (we drink no alcohol) and for the kitties we had salmon for everycat It was one of the best new Years Eves I ever had!
It was wonderful a mood and the cats were really thankful for the attention. Not to mention that I took a LOT of pictures and all in all the year starts very good and special.
If you do not have any good New year resolution I can highly recommend to work for a animal shelter or if you have less time: Adopt a pet from a shelter and get a friend for life

Don't you ever have problem with your eyes? I mean do you feel your eyes tired sometimes and what do you do to make them rest?
You've probably noticed that I don't post a lot of things since 2012 :S It's because I precisely have big problsm with my eyes... It starts to become so annoying that I sometimes think to stop drawing and change of work ^^'
Okay, I won't be able to really stop drawing haha, but I wanted to know if I was alone or if some of you had good ideas against this problem that many people who work with screens seem to have (?)
