MASSIVE WARNING TO NIGHTVALE PEEPS: THIS GUY IS BAD NEWS

lorentztransformation:

This guy is getting into Welcome to Nightvale and it’s best to stay the fuck away. He’s a bad guy. What kind of bad guy?

The kind that has been lying since for-fucking-ever and has a pattern he follows in every fandom he can get in. The kind that blames all of the abusive, terrible things he’s done on mental illnesses though his diagnoses never remain the same. The kind that has done really terrible things to people (one survivor of his abuse/cult shit describes his shamming of her body and jesus, massive trigger warning for awful body shamming). 

Andy is also transphobic: he states he was assigned female at birth, but identifies as a cis straight man since he’s totally not trans, as us trans men are somehow not as man of a man as he is.

Not that it matters to him that he doesn’t ID as anything related to the LGBT community, because he’ll be happy to appropriate our pain and suffering for his cause shamelessly.

There’s much more crap you can find out. This guy is thirty now and is still targeting younger people (you may have seen him posting his number in places telling you to call him if you feel unhappy, which is probably one of the more dangerous things you can do.

You can read more about him here:

"And I’m prouder of that than if I’d simply been ‘good’ from the beginning": Why I Think Andy Blake is (still) Dangerous

ATF links This one is super useful as it has a whole bunch of links to the warning blogs.

Primer on Andy Blake

The warning that went out to the Teen Wolf fandom that he also tried to weasle in on.

You can also find more info on him in the andythanfiction and thanfiction tags on tumblr. Don’t try “Andy Bake” or “Andrew Blake”, however, as that’s the name of a famous porn director. Fun fact, he picked that name to make it harder to trace him, so that’s not sketch at all.

So stay safe. He’s a bad guy with a terrible record. Don’t let his shitty art copy pasting/painting over fool you.

"oh my god stop criticizing young girls who like 50 Shades of Gray or Twilight you can’t tell them what they can and can’t read"

no we can’t but we have to protect young girls from mistaking abusive behavior for genuine affection at all costs

i’m thankful my childhood was filled with imagination and bruises from playing outside, instead of apps and how many damn likes you get on a picture

Yeah because technology-enhanced socialization and entertainment is so inherently inferior. Bruises are so much better than effortlessly connecting with people around the world and climbing trees is way above nurturing a sense of self love and don’t even get me STARTED on how terrible it is to immerse yourself fully in a beautiful imaginary world rendered in graphic visual detail in which you can feel powerful and involved and participate fully in a story.

Yeah bruises and skinned knees are way better.

someone put into words why i hate when people rib that all homophobic people are just secretly gay 

being queer isnt some ironic punishment

THERE WE FUCKIN’ GO

Also reinforcing the idea that queer people closet their identity with a mask of hate and cruelty is really damaging.

BUT ACTUALLY. LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS SONG.

The Second Rape- Aus Rotten

Every 45 seconds a woman is raped
Our sexist culture allows no escape
This violent crime is far from obscurity
When the rate of victims is one in three

Society conditions men to be rapists
And our indifference perpetuates it
With derogatory language that tends to dehumanize
Making it easier for men to victimize

And the pornographic images that help portray
Women as legitimate sexual prey
When sexism is embedded in our judicial system
It’s no surprise why the courts won’t listen

And the role of attacker and survivor become distorted
So the majority of rapes are never reported

The threat of rape is always there
It’s like a poison that saturates the air
A society stricken by a cancerous disease
Where men know they can do as they please

You tell me the punishment for rape
You tell me how much jail time it will take
When one out of three women will be raped
You tell me what it’s going to fucking take

Do you see me in my low cut shirt
Or high heel shoes or a miniskirt
Woman is the victim you desire
You say you can’t resist your predatory fire

You tell me why I stand guilty and accused
You tell me when I’m beaten and abused
When it’s my body that’s been raped and defiled
You tell me why I’m the one on trial

Defense attorney: Do you know the man who “allegedly” attacked you?
Victim: Yes, I know the man who raped me.
Defense attorney: And isn’t this gentleman a friend of yours?
Victim: Well, I thought he was a friend of mine.
Defense attorney: And were you drinking that night he “allegedly” attacked you?
Victim: I had a drink or two but is that a crime?
Defense attorney: I’ll ask the questions if you don’t mind!
-What were you wearing? How did you act?
Victim: My wardrobe is not a reason for some guy to attack.
-I didn’t act in any way to bring this on. Why am I on trail? What did I do wrong?
Defense attorney: Could you tell the jury why you let this happen?
Victim: I was in shock. I couldn’t stop him.
Defense attorney: You claim that you were raped but how do we know?
Victim: I said no, I said no, I said no, no, no!
Defense attorney: Isn’t it true you’re just a woman scorned?
Victim: I’m a woman who’s been raped and torn.
Defense attorney: Your honor, I demand that this case be dismissed,
-it all comes down to her word against his!
I may not have bruises all over my body
I may have been drinking while at the party
But when I went to his room I never would have guessed
That he would force my no to mean a yes
You tell me why I’m guilty of this crime
You tell me why the responsibility is mine
When women suffer a second rape during trial
Courts help rapists to violate and defile

I could have sworn I posted this before, but my list says otherwise.

this song helped me so much. I listened to it all day everyday for so long.

a simple yet beautiful reminder, it could be you! be thankful for everything you have.

i love these but i also wanna say, even if someone is homeless and has no talent, never had a job, doesnt speak numerous languages or have a cool skill, they are steal worthy of a home. homeless people are people, whether or not they are worth something in a capitalist world, they are still and always will be worthy of a safe secure life simply because they are people

Bolded for emphasis. One of the biggest problems with capitalism is that you literally have to work to live. Need water? Pay for it. Food? Pay. Shelter? Pay in a big way. Jobs are scarce? Too fuckin bad. You even need money to obtain the skills you need to contribute in the expected ways for you to survive. If that’s not inhumane I don’t know what is.

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

Excuse me… What.

what the actual fuck

Proof you don’t have to actively hate gay people to be homophobic. To be demeaning as fuck. To see them as less than human, but just your own personal toys.


Homophobic, misogynistic, and callous! This piece of garbage is a triple threat!

You know how sometimes you think you need to poop but you’re really just gassy and you end up letting loose this endless, almost symphonic fart?

Yeah that’s a super satisfying feeling.

"I don’t see race" = "I don’t see racism" = "racism makes me uncomfortable" = "I don’t want to address racism" = racism still continues

Pretending that racism doesn’t exist is not going to solve racism..
