Star Ribbon 01 Star I've been drawing since 2003 ie for 18+ yrs of my life. (The first 10 to 12 traditionally and mostly offline, while the remainder I converted fully to Digital Media, after I joined University in 2013 to study animation and had full access to digital technology of international standards - at the time.)

In all that time I've taught myself how to draw alot of things alone - despite having attended "Art School/ Art Classes" in the past, (and today I am still self learning/ experimenting and practicing cuz there's always something new to explore), but the most significant lessons for me were Anime/Manga Character Designing, Drawing real people as Portraits, and learning how to use Photoshop - as these were the main genres I had to teach myself to get ahead in Art related stuff.

Red Cross Bow TOOLS OF TRADE Red Cross Bow

Pixel: Rainbow Heart Star light pink heart Star Pixel: Rainbow Heart For the Traditional Medium:

it's usually 8 x11 computer paper, pencils (including coloured and shading) and Faber Castell Markers, (but I also like using chalk & oil pastels, textured paper and gel pens too - both the glitter and non glitter kinds.) For non coloured illustrations, I use Fine Point Pens, Ball Points and the Faber Castell Fine Point, Ecco Pigment, Marker Pens.

I use the Sharpie brand for drawing on glass and other hard surfaces. (Recently in 2022 started using Acrylic Paint to decorate wood-works with hand painted Floral designs and I'm enjoying the process so far.)

Star heart balloons Star heart balloons For Digital Medium I use:

Autodesk Maya (for 3D Modeling), Adobe Illustrator (to create linearts, make gradients and vector resources), and Photoshop (to edit, composite, apply coloring and photo-manipulate) via the use of my very old and malfunctioning Windows 8.1 Laptop XD, (now replaced in 2020 with my Acer Nitro), in combination with a Keyboard and Optical Mouse. For my Abstracts, I use a series of "Kids" Art Apps that can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store (that comes with Windows 8 and 10 Machines.)

Please note, that the Screens on my both my Laptops are tinted and specifically designed in mind for a person with eye sight problems like mine - (so ie if you are having some kind of issues, please adjust your screen's brightness/ contrast to suit. Thank you.)

Avalarian Orb When I'm not doing either of these things, I watch non-commentary gameplays via Youtube (for research purposes), I view films and animations (also for research purposes & entertainment), build/decorate World spaces in Altspace VR and/or chill to music while:

-> Browsing through my Social Media for things I need to stay updated on (such as Covid, the status of my Country, the US etc) as well as answering Curious Cat Questions (occasionally.)

-> Blog posting abut my feelings & issues via my Therapy App, to help me manage my Mental Health and sanity levels.

-> Brainstorming ideas and writing them down via my (digital) Notepad & doing research for said ideas.

-> Reading DA User's Bios and going through their gallery (before communicating or badge trading with them.)

-> Greeting Newbie Users to DA in my emoji patterned and art decored style

-> Sending Birthday Wishes (also in my emoji patterned style)

-> Responding to Llamas sent to me as requests to check out the sender's Art Works & resending those llamas in return when done.

-> Faving users Art Works (both during the Newbie Greeting Process and Llama Trading Process.)


Here is a list of img Emoji Decor Images you might come across from me, if I have visited your Profile or Forum post: (Please note that NONE of the Emojis are of my Art. I just borrowed them from the respective DA Creators to help me make decorative messages for the sole purpose of my style of communicating.)


pastel heart This one is to welcome Newbies to the site. In the Forums, Users may receive the animated version of this gesture. (Implemented since 2016.)

Welcome to DeviantArt

pastel heart This one (or similar) is for those who sent me a llama for the "Check out my Gallery" Requests - (implemented since 2015.)

Original Llama Back Reply

pastel heart These two are for feedback responses to "Thank yous" (about anything), basic compliments etc. Traditionally they used to be animated also, but Eclipse doesn't allow copy and paste emojis on Profiles, so I mostly stick with image I composited now, cuz I don't have the patience to manually type in each emoji, one by one all the time.... (Both styles were implemented in 2016/2017.)

You're Welcome Greeting
Thanks Greeting

pastel heart and finally, this one is for people celebrating their Birthdays.

(The original didn't look like this, but with the Eclipse System in 2020, the design was re-vamped. The original version - which comprised of animated emojis - was implemented in 2014, at first with friends, and then integrated to include Users registered via the DA Birthday's Listings in 2017 in combination with my Gift Basket Project Concept at the time.)

Happy Birthday Greeting

Other Img Greetings that will be created soon, will show up below here.


:love: New Decor Image (Feb 20th, 2022)

Had to make this for DA's Heart Badge trading that I decided to do in the final 10 days before the feature expires in March. (Was aiming to collect about 30 to 35 hearts for personal reasons), but the Decor Image is mostly to help me remember and clear off notifications of those whom I returned badges to, cuz my bronchitis now affects my sleep process, and lack of sleep means lack of concentration :(

Plus the badge is glitching alittle lately in my badge activity records, (where I can't see who I sent badges to), so the Decor Image helps me keep track.

Star Ribbon 01 Star My work isn't the best in the world, BUT my purpose with Art (in regards to my personal works, personal fan-arts, freebies, replication experiments, digital colourings etc) is mostly a therapeutic kind (for my mental health.)

All I want to do is draw all the things I've always imagined/ thought about, dreamt about and viewed from my perspectives - irregardless of the work's accuracy, mistakes, style, quality or similarity to someone eles's work etc, - (because I never really got the opportunity in my younger yrs.) Drawing (in a nut shell for me), is my way of expressing myself and my escapism, (for things like dealing with trauma from abusive, irl situations.)

I originally joined Deviantart, (by invitation from a daughter of a DreamWorks employee in 2008/2009) to share my works globally with my fans, friends and family, via the use of Social Media - (as most of them reside and/ or work outside of Trinidad & Tobago).

<div class=spoiler><div>

> That said, (and while I understand that this part comes off as unprofessional - I HAVE to say it for the very specific one or two "Karens" / "Kens" and "take everything out of context" type people etc, that often target, harrass, stalk, spread propaganda and/or cyber bully me on purpose, anytime I have something factual to say, state my feelings openly/honestly, text post in my way of dialect, defend my human rights or speak from my own life experience about the work that I do) :


-> if you're the kind of person who likes to randomly "critique" people online - (disregarding if it's wanted or not by the artist you're targeting and yuh like to disregard things like descriptions, time/date stamps on pieces etc or use narcissism, entitlement and excuses like "it's the internet", "don't post your art online/ on a public platform if you don't want critiques" or "it's freedom of speech" or "I just wanted to help" (when nobody asked for said help), to justify the disrespect you committed),

-> OR you're the type who assumes/ accuses me of "tracing" and insists on it (despite evidence on my Social Media that proves otherwise),

-> OR you like to take my old content and mock/ criticize me for it (for manipulation and hate propaganda purposes),

-> OR you're offended that I'm extremely Anti NSFW and want zero association with you/it,

-> You're offended that I blocked you,

-> OR you're offended my that my Comments Sections aren't for critiques, hate/ verbal abuse/attacks, spam etc, or to display your nsfw/porn art on, and you think I should turn them off off just cuz "you're not getting your way" with me etc,

-> OR you're the "TLDR" kinda person who complains that my Descriptions under my work or that my Bio is "too long/ worded/ preachy?" and "seems unprofessional" so you need me to "change it",

-> OR you're the kind of person (like the one described in my Journal "Anime Troll on the Loose") who gets offended/ triggered at my comments - the way I word things/write/speak - (especially if you get offended on someone else's behalf and I nor the other person, never contacted you in the first place nor requested Social Justice Warrioring to be done) and/or you turn around to use (weaponize) autism, depression, religion etc as your "excuse" for why I should give you "extra special (karen) privileges"/ demand I be "nicer" to you, (whilst at the same time you further disrespect me by doing (any) calls outs/propaganda posting, group discussion gossip, comment spamming me with insults either via mentions, unauthorised art tagging (using my work) etc or block evading and comming at me on my profile with another account etc with "I'm outraged" sentiments and demands - particularly for blocking you after responding to your original "I'm offended" comment), DMing my followers to spread propaganda,

- > OR If you're the kind of person who likes to block evade (multiple times with various accounts which breaks DA's rules) to comment/ message me your response back, (after I've blocked you for being rude/ disrespectful to me in the first place - especially on my profile,

- > OR (this also breaks DA's Rule) - you made an account to specifically target me or others for reasons (such as you're offended at Anime/Manga Artist, you're offended at Artists for drawing black/ brown skinned humanoid concepts, you're looking to "police" people you suspect (with no evidence) as being "bad" or "Art Thieves" and people you assume "traced" art - even if the person has proof they didn't, You try to engage in chat with people with hostile intent and attack them for ignoring/ blocking you, etc),

--> OR you hate/dislike bright and/or colourful art, or just hate my version of bright/colourful works,

-> OR you're the kind of person who gets triggered by Emoji Decor greetings/ notifications such as those listed above in Hobbies and/or insistently mistake me being nice to you as "spam"/ "seeking art attention" - (enough to angrily DM me - instead of using the delete button or hide function or ignoring me),

-> OR you're the type who has a habit of saying things eg "people who don't like getting critiques are childish/act like children", (yet you're between the ages of 13 to 25 usually, just got out of Highschool, just joined the app in a yr or less and your Art doesn't look like the quality of what professional Creatives eg Artgerm, Sakimichan, Yummei, K-koji, Tsao-shin, Ellisium, Ryky etc produce), the creative you target is much old than you, & you can't grasp the concept that people around the world (individually) have different life ideologies and boundaries than you and your friends do ie can't show mutual respect,

-> OR you're the type of person who has a viewpoint of "She's using her Depression to deny critiques" and/or gets offended/outraged that I tell you to "be considerate next time" after I blocked you, (as the take away lesson for how you should treat other users on DA),

-> OR you have this mindset that critiquing is 100% acceptable & mandatory to all 7 billion people on earth, just cuz SOME Artists you interacted with, allowed you the priveldge to complain/opinionate or chose not to respond to your comment, (completely disregarding that everybody in the world grew up in different cultures etc than your own & ie have different values, experiences, morals, life/social understandings etc),


- then please IMMEDIATELY ignore or Block my account before contacting me in any way.


(( cccuzzz sorry/not sorry, I just don't the have time or energy for you or your "karen-esque" bs and I ain't into drama - mostly cuz I'm very happy/ satisfied atm with my work's qualities (old or new) and I am not afraid of fighting back to stand up for my human rights, nor am I afraid of reporting you to the Staff on ANY website either if you contact me in any way with malicious intent.

And if I greet you but my art is attached, just know they're just decoration.

It's not there to "beg you" for likes/ attention, followers or whatever messed up ideas you want to attack me with. (If attention was my aim, I wouldn't use Dawn or Candy or any of my Gift Basket Project Freebies meant to spread positivity (and that is open to all to collect/ download and use for personal needs if they want to), nor use my most popular works to do it. In short - I don't give a f**k much for "likes"/favs." (Just saying) That had never been why I do my Art nor was it the reason/motivation I decided to make freebies to give back to the community > so please stop trying to brand me with such nonsense - just cuz you have "issues".


If you're vex (for whatever reason - such as at what I just wrote), then - again, I encourage you to block me, learn to practice some Wabi Sabi if you're feeling too outraged, and move on.))

__________________________________________

> And finally for the other types of people - the "professional complainers" (as we like to call them here in Trinidad):

-> If your complaint is that my art isn't good enough/ isn't perfect enough (to your standards) EG - "your work has anatomy issues/ colour issues", "your hands look weird/ are too small" (as if imbalanced anatomy doesn't exist), "some of your work is too bright/ too dull", "only some work is neon", "your lines are too thick/ too thin" etc,

-> OR you troll me with classic "Karen" comebacks such as : "youre rude", "ur art is shit", "ur colouring is horrible", "your art is inconsistent" - (whatever the f**k that even means), "study anatomy", "u have an ego"/ "you're not a professional", "learn about lighting", "maybe that's why your work sucks", "you'll never improve without critiques", "go to art school/ art class", "ur colouring hurts my eyes", "you act like a child/ you act like you're 13 or 14 yrs old" , "crawl back to the dingy corner of the internet where you came from" or send me death threats, hate messages about my family and friends being "whores" etc - all in an attempt to shame me, defame or degrade my character and undermine my mental health - especially if you sugar coat your comments with "I like this/ that and it looks great.... BUT..." or you say something along the lines like ..." if you're looking/ hoping to improve" or "even a cook knows burnt food when they see it" - then please:

I DO invite you to create/ colour your own version of my work, to satisfy your issues, inputting your "corrections" in your version - ESPECIALLY if your work looks like the egs (shown below) and you still insist on commenting/ complaining -

Trash Art from Trash people

If not - then block me and move on with your life.


((Do NOT - under any circumstances/reasons, try to justify, defend, nor validate your idea of "free speech" (such as the praises listed above) as "criticism" especially when targeting my old works and treating me as if I'm stupid, nor make assumptions about my works - cuz what you have to say ain't critiques and are definitely NOT helpful.

Personally to me 1) if you draw like the examples (shown above), and you get mad when I tell you to "take your own advice" before commenting at me, or you get bitter/salty that you didn't get an automated "thank you" response (because you're trying to brand me as being responsible with your voluntary, negative choices on how you chose to spend your time), and/or 2) you're not the client/ requester who contacted me with specification on how they wanted their work be done for them in my Art Style, and/or 3) you won't do my challenge/ get mad at me when I advise you to go draw it if you don't like my version and still complain, OR 4) you initiate first contact randomly, staring bs drama and acting as if my online profile is "your property" that you can walk all over on, when I never contacted you in the first place > then considering all these factors - you have NO business going around telling people - (including me), what you think "should be improved" (especially about anatomy or colouring) - irregardless of freedom of speech, if it's the internet or that if you're a "potential client"/ someone "offering help" - (or whatever other excuse you want to give to continue to be a "Karen"/ Ken." The world of 7 billion people doesn't revolve around your entitlement or your idea of what critiques are or the value of such words. In addition, you can't be drawing poorly, and then come pretending that you're a grandmaster expert in an Art or a Style that you do not make yourself.

Not saying all creatives who draw poorly are bad people. I'm specifically talking about the "karen/ken" types who make the Art Community unbareable toxic on purpose by trolling and playing vicitm to get you to excuse their behaviour.))



Avalarian OrbAnd I'm sorry to say this, but at the end of the day - I nor my work is for everybody - due to differences in tastes , so I don't and never have expected everyone to enjoy my work or in the same way I would, nor at all for some - (hence the reason why I encourage blocking me without contacting me, if you have a problem). Trying to force/ bully me to conform to your ideas and insisting on it, by mocking me or insulting my intelligence, (especially when you're not positively supporting nor paying me to work) - including when you insist that I "tolerate"/ accept you - not only breaks DA Ethics rules, but it not constructive.

Don't believe me about DA's rules? See part of it for yourself. If you want the whole thing, check the Terms of Service or Privacy Policy. They link the Code of Ethics there:

Deviantart's Code of Coduct Guide

I'm aware that some would point out that when I respond back to the "karens/kens" who leave trash messages on my account (anywhere) or engage in propaganda behaviour that they're quick to claim that I "broke rules" - that I'm the aggressive/rude one, that I'm oppressing "free speech", that I'm a hypocrite - but here's where you're wrong. Even though DA Staff might not like my methods of how I take matters into my own hands when dealing with toxic users, I still have a constitutional right to defend my human rights & block, when some random stranger waltz onto my profile with inappropriate behaviour, (as my account is my personal space on the site) - (especially when I grew up in a culture and country where you're taught that once you're an adult, you handle things on your own usually, rather than run to anybody for help, unless absolutely nessecary.)

You can't attack people, not expect retaliation & consequences to happen and then play victim, blaming me - a blk lgbt person for drama you started. Wouldn't have to respond either if you didn't come at me first and with bs. So check yuhself before yuh wreck yuhself!


Also - in case y'all didn't know: actual professionals in the Industry do NOT sit around being online all day to "critique", debate nor argue with someone about their work, (UNLESS personally asked or paid to do such) -and they certainly don't force their views onto others out of the blue, so please kindly refrain from being an ahole and/or, making excuses to force others to accept your bs behavior, or weaponzing excuses when you don't get what you want from someone - especially when people stand up against you (eg calling people "children" when they deny critiques, yet you the "critic" itself is 13 to 25 yrs old and often younger than those receiving the critique, and you get mad that people reject your "critiques.")


Additionally to me, Art is Subjective. The concept of "perfectionism" doesn't exist as both subjects vary per individual's taste (artists and consumers/viewers alike), not everyone makes and posts art for the same reasons, nor is everybody here for "entertainment" and there are many ways to produce a piece of work. It doesn't have to be done "your way", or done in the "one way" that you consider is the "ultimate/ right way." (Human Anatomy is also Subjective aka not perfect in real life either - nor is every aspect of it as important as you deem it to be - such as a person's genitals.) If it was, then people wouldn't be using Photoshop, Makeup or be doing Plastic Surgery nor be on IG taking selfies at angles, or be using filters - so if you don't mind, stop asking me to draw shit that doesn't exist please - Thanks. If you can't stand to see flaws (like small hands, eyes that don't look quiet right, small heads on big bodies, boobs being bigger than head and shoulders etc), then that's your problem. Learn how genetics works and stop making your issues & insecurities mine to deal with.)


At the end of the day, I'm not drawing my personal content to please just you (the one of two complainers), I'm not gonna change me entire work style, personality, brain/eye/ body function nor my bio/art description panel to suit just you neither - (such as those who prefer "realism" over what I produce or people who think a blind person should work the same as one who isn't etc), and I ain't gonna stress myself out mentally just to "debate/ prove" anything to you nor tolerate your negativity - especially when this site alone is home to 42 million other users, (ie you have options to follow people who do produce your preferences of content, so there is NO need for you to attack me if I don't suit your tastes/ "standards" or ideologies. I'm also not gonna change my entire cultural upbringing/ "way I speak" at you either - just because you felt offended or uncomfortable or felt the need to try shame me for my "Caribbean-ness" as a mixed race/black woman. Stop being racist, subjecting me to "white" standards of behavior, and learn about other people's culture - cuz enough is enough! If you randomly pop up on my Social Media, insult me/ my intelligence, my work, my friends & family etc, then expect to get the same hateful, rude treatment back that you gave to me.)


Bottom Line is - my mental health maintenance comes first.

If you're vex for that and can't respect my stance, boundaries, values etc, well too bad.

You cannot force me to engage with, nor tolerate something that isn't mentally conducive nor constructive to me or my well being - especially if the intention is to manipulate me to be someone I am not, just for your comfort or control.

Also - if you have nothing good to say, then don't come here to start bullshit drama, and then play the victim like some "Karen" after I give you a piece of my mind - Trini Style. As Will Smith said in MIB - "Don't start nothin' Won't be Nothin") If you're vex for that too, well you can hull yuh ass too (as we say here in Trinidad), cuz I'm not here to "babysit" people or be your teacher/ mommy or whatever. If you looking for "Karen Privileges", better go somewhere else yo. I don't play those games. If you're on my Profile, consider yuh ass grown, and take responsibility for what you say and do, instead of blaming me for shit you chose to initiate.


And for those "outta context people" - if read all this and you think I'm trying to ask people for a "safe space"/ "echo chamber", then you my friend, have missed the point.

If you assume that I'm branding people who draw a certain way, you still missed the point there too, (cuz in the example I provided, those are 10 real Users on DA - most of them adults - who attacked/ bully me in 2017 with things like my "anatomy sucks", "your drawings suck", "draw realism", "you have an ego". "I can't consider your art anime cuz of what I've seen on google" etc or got mad at me for speaking about my personal life experiences openly, or for defending my rights, just cuz I happen to also draw the Anime/Manga style and I didn't agree with their views on several things in Art or in real life - since I tend to speak from personal experience, rather than on "hearsay"/ stereotypes of what Popular Artists or Tutors say/ believe/ re-enforce - especially if it's outdated concepts not fit for 2020 life.

And also as you can see, none of them specialize in ANY of the work that I do, nor do they bother to take time to work on their content to make it better - even though some of them have been here since 2014. They don't even take and apply the same advice they give out to people freely either as "critiques", onto their work to say "yes this is true" and have anything to back them up. So the point is, I'm not a fan of hypocrisy or the condescending, two faced entitlement attitude - especially when they try to normalize bullying creatives who draw the Anime/Manga style (disregarding anything else the Artist does.) You can't draw like the samples I showed, and then tell me that my anatomy sucks or say that I have an ego etc, when you ARE exactly what you're trying to label others as, whilst demanding to be respected by the person you're labeling and bullying. I don't do "Karen logic.")


And finally if you're thinking that I don't take critiques ever because you think, that I think my work is "perfect" - that's also not true. (I do accept criticism, but I have very high standards for them and from whom I get them from. If you draw like a 2 yr old and talk/type alot everyday but don't draw much - like the 10 users I showcased above - you can't expect me to take you seriously for anything you have to say - sorry. Additionally, I am my own worst critic to my work - [ because that was how I was trained to be in my Art/Animation Education] ie I don't really require additional outsiders that much, to tell me what's wrong with my work. Whatever you think is "wrong", I most likely had already took note of it before and damaged my own mental health further by fussing over it silently - [hence the reason why professional Animators, Artists etc from the US Industry - when they run into me - they try to be more encouraging.] )

Irregardless of these things though, due to the nature of the world today being the "enrage to engage" type, all I am asking is for people (who visit my Social Media Platforms) to be considerate and THINK/ apply logic/common sense before messaging me for any reason - especially if the intentions are malicious (and even more when I'm being nice to you, but you get triggered.)

If you can't be respectful, then, again - please feel free to block me and move on with life.

__________________________________________


Star Ribbon 01 Star As for my goal with my Art - It used to be where I wanted to be one of the Artists who can literally draw anything (and produce my own Anime/Manga content), but since I'm nearing that, I now hope to show people that they


1) Don't have to be perfect (or pretend to be) when it comes to drawing.

It's ok to make mistakes in your work etc and not be anxious and self critical all the time. You can always come back to your concepts (personal works), with new perspectives and things you've learnt on your own etc in redrawing challenges. No concept is ever in it's "final form."


2) They don't always have to 100% create everything by themselves all the time - if they know they're struggling with something (such as making backgrounds or comming up with "original ideas" - which often result in art or colour blocks)

Knowing how to do everything is a good skill to have, (particularly if you're a or planning to be a Freelancer/ Full Time Creative) and practice/ experimentation is always commedable, but for those who feel pressured - (especially hobbyists who don't take art that seriously) or people who take mental hits or want to quit because they feel discouraged about "not being good enough" (due to comparing themselves to others or allowing others to compare them with other people etc) - It's ok to use references and FREE resources to help you - (just make sure to credit back) and it's ok to have fun with your work.

3) They don't have to have a fully functioning body to make art and


4) They don't have to force themselves to "fit in a box" (aka other people's expectations) or "follow rules" just because someone told them they had to, in order for them to make good/ decent art or to even be successful with their work. I mean, It's 2020, not 1900. Rules are just guidelines/ stepping stones. It doesn't mean they can't be broken, changed or revised nor that they will work for everybody in the world. And even though it's ok to imitate those whom you feel inspired by, at the end of the day you still have to find your own identity with your own Art Work- irregardless of who's style you choose to carry with you. Just saying.

It's ok to be free with your creativity and run with it - even if a few people might not like it or you.


(( I say this cuz I'm tired of seeing people both in the Anime/Manga, Fanart AND General Art Community Groups on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Discord, Tumblr etc being mis-formed about their work from someone else - (who also happens to be mis-informed too), and they feel discouraged from continuing to create work >

like the time when some "moo-moo" told this lady that she's "not an Artist" and that "Abstract Art isn't Art because it" was "too colourful"

or the time when someone told another lady that Liquid Pouring/ Fluid Art "wasn't Abstract Art",

or the other few times someone told some creatives told that "Photography isn't Art",

or like the many times people think digital art isn't real art/ you're cheating

or the times when people attack Artists for not making Fanart in the exact way as the show (eg when people attacked silverjow_art via Twitter over her version of Sailor Moon, where she used her Sister as anatomy reference or when people attacked Gashi-Gashi for drawing Garnet from Steven Universe as a "white girl" or the incident with Paige Paz (aka Zamii070) and their Steve Universe Fanart, where people via tumblr constantly cyber bullied till she attempted suicide (and even after the hospital trip and police getting involved to do take downs irl - people still kept attacking her online for no reason), or the debate/ Twitter war about Nessa's (from Pokemon) skin colour or several professional Japanese and Korean Anime/Manga Artists (including a guy who created detailed "How to Draw" Manga tutorials) getting bullied off Twitter - just cuz (untalented American "karens/kens) disliked their high quality works, or the pointless debates about Anime being "Cartoons for Kids that have no good Storyline" or that the art is trash and a multitude of other bs incidents - (There's ALWAYS Something) - that disenfranchises and stereotype a mass group of creators (including Animators who work hard to make the content we see in Media everyday or use as entertainment etc.)

It's 2020 and I find issues like these should not be still happening, so I want to take a stand to help fight this nonsense - despite my deteriorating health.)
