Demographics: Where ya from?
I’m actually curious about where my watchers are tuning in from.
You don’t have to give an exact location. I, myself, am posting from the Southern region of the US (Bible Belt)- which has influenced the setting and characters of this blog, like the fact that Belladonna is supposed to sound like Miss Scarlet (Gone With the Wind).
So if you’re willing to humor me, you can tell me your country/region.
It always makes my day to see a bunch of notes pop up when I post something.
Thank you all for making this blog so much fun!
Trying to get through some of the really old asks that I have in my folder….
Working During the Con
So remember when I said I might attend Animation Celebration. Yeah, I forgot to put in for time off and I’m working ALL THREE DAYS… poo.
The sad thing is that it’s really close to my work. It’s like I’m being taunted. I would not be surprised to see cosplayers come into the store to get emergency supplies.
Finish all the house chores.
Sit down to draw ponies.
Look at clock.
It’s time to go to work…
My internet kind of cut out at some point in the stream… sorry, I will try to figure out what went wrong.
But this is what I decided to draw.
I’m going to attempt to livestream later tonight… hopefully I’ve figured out what’ve I’ve been doing wrong the whole time and this will work!
It will probably be around 10 PM US Central Time
I’ll post when it starts.
I have no idea what I’m going to draw.
"A North Carolina school has banned a 9-year-old boy from using his "My Little Pony" backpack because it was making him a target for bullies, it’s claimed. C…
This is absolutely intolerable.
I will admit, I am not interested in the MLP community, nor do I really care about the series or fandom, but this is unacceptable. This is a prime example of the laziness and idiocy that we shamefully call an attempt to end bullying.
Children should NOT be subject to bullying or have to worry about being bullied because of something they like or wear, nor should we be teaching children that it is alright to bully others! This is despicable. The school is letting the bullies get away with it without punishment, thus creating a mentality that they can continue to bully others without any consequences. This also creates an atmosphere that could be harmful to children, and make a child not feel that they can trust teachers or adults.
This is definitely NOT the answer to solving the problem of bullying.
This is essentially hammering home that age old concept of “conformity is key”. A child should not be afraid to let anyone know that s/he likes something different. Children should be taught that it is NOT okay to bully someone just because they are a little different. Bullies should not get a free pass just because it isn’t the typical thing for a boy to like.
And when people say the kid should just fight back… That doesn’t solve the problem, it doesn’t really teach the kids that are bullying that what they are doing is wrong.
A child should not be told to stop being themselves to avoid bullying. Bullies should be told that their actions are unacceptable no matter what!
Now if the mod would just get back to drawing some good ol’ fashioned murder!
Someday I will stream art
Eventually I will manage to get Livestream to work!!!
Gosh I don’t know why I am having so much trouble with it… but I really miss streaming my art and having folks to chat with while I work.
