ATTN: Free! Artists, Please be Cautious of this Blog!

wafflesex:

The following Tumblr user animefreefanclub has been repeatedly reposting uncredited and unattributed fanwork to their Tumblr.

Their askbox is not open, so we must take the next step forward to ensure they understand what they are doing is wrong.

Please take a moment to make sure your work hasn’t been stolen. If it has, then you may consider filing a complaint using Tumblr’s handy DMCA form and they will see to deleting the reposted work as well as all reblogs from said post. If you see your friend’s or favorite artists’ work reposted, then please inform them as well! Even if you do not see your work, then please spread this message for the consideration of others.

Stealing artwork from someone who has contributed their time and effort is not only rude, it is also incredibly disrespectful. Let’s work together make sure this does not continue. Thank you.

these people BURNED DOWN A HOUSE of a rape victim because she accused the (grand?)son of a senator and was a football player

their family was driven out of town 

if this was in india or pakistan, imagine the reaction that americans would have. the outrage, obama would probably make a speech on it to save women again but these people are sick freaks in america so no one gives a shit they were THIRTEEN AND FOURTEEN

This kickass lady (and Kansas state representative) really said that. 

"The Legislature’s annual attempt to repeal a statute allowing in-state tuition for Kansas students without legal residency drew an emotional crowd to a House committee Wednesday.
Students who have lived in the United States most of their lives got choked up as they described the academic lifeline in-state tuition has provided to improve their lives. A counselor who works with such students in Wichita high schools shed tears as she showed legislators a scrapbook of success stories. Murmurs of unrest were heard in the gallery as one House member asked about the prevalence of illegal immigrants from gangs and drug cartels in American prisons.
But nothing drew a bigger reaction than when Rep. Ponka We-Victors, D-Wichita, wrapped up a series of questions to the bill’s chief proponent, Secretary of State Kris Kobach.
“I think it’s funny Mr. Kobach, because when you mention illegal immigrant, I think of all of you,” said Victors, the Legislature’s lone American Indian member.
The heavily pro-immigrant gallery burst into cheers and applause — a rare reaction in normally staid hearings.”
