How to give proper credit to artists without knowing who they are
I appreciate reblogging the shit out of this if anybody wouldn’t mind.
Sick of art going around and artists not getting proper credit at all.
Plus as an added bonus you usually get to find out about an artist that you’ll become interested in, if they made something cool enough for you to repost it.
BE A HERO. Give credit where credit is due (or risk looking like a jerk).
Just convinced myself I needed a birthday outfit in spite of having no plans so I purchased this romper. It was originally $100 and I got it for just under $20 including shipping & tax.
All I can think about is obnoxiously loud floral prints ALL OVER MY BODY & how good it’s gonna feel.
I have really mixed, mostly cynical feelings about the Olympics (which I won’t go too far into now for fear of sounding all, “I’m an old lady, get off my lawn!”) but mostly it has a lot to do with what a massive money-sucking spectacle it is to create all of this goodwill between countries when really we’re all killing each other & our own people back home… But I digress.
Companies who have nothing to do with the Olympics using the games as an opportunity to generate some propaganda for their brand really makes my eye twitch at an accelerated pace, so now I’m trolling for justice. Delia’s, who is on my radar because I shop there due to being the size of a baby, was my first victim of public shaming. It felt pretty good.
No matter who you are, if you’re reading this you should bookmark these two links, then share them with everyone you know. I never imagined that I would need this sort of information until one day I needed it very badly to protect a friend & wasn’t in the state of mind to google for it or ask around for advice. We did it alone, safely & successfully, and we took most of the steps outlined above. I only wish we had known at the time that we were making the right choices rather than just hoping that we were.
What struck me was how very few people were able or willing to help her. Domestic situations are very “he said, she said” and unsurprisingly, what a scared, hysterical female says holds very little weight with most people, even family. When she’s not in hysterics people become suspicious that things aren’t as bad as they sound. Then they send her back home to live through it all over again.
If someone you know is in danger you cannot wait for a superhero. You have to be one.
