Wow! What a shitstorm this has been.
Until things just blow over, I’m going to turn off my ask box.
I’m sorry if you wanted to write something in to me, if it’s about how my comic hurt you, I have a couple posts apologizing.
If it’s about how I haven’t learned my lesson and that I’m still uneducated about why my comic has hurt people, believe me, I realize how it could be interpreted as offensive. And you would have been one of a couple hundred to point out the error of my ways.
If it’s hate (and, that’s a lot different than respectful critique), fuck off. Honestly, I have no respect for someone who writes in saying I’m a “privileged white bitch piece of shit who should burn in hell”.
And if it was fanmail, I’m sorry I won’t be able to read it! Just know that I appreciate the fact you would go out of your way to compliment me <3
I’m going to get off tumblr for the next couple of days, and then continue blogging normally. Life goes on, this has been an excellent experience, and I’ve learned a lot about just how much my comics can affect people (whether positive or negative).
Hope you have an amazing day!
"If it’s about how my comic has hurt you, I have a couple posts apologizing even though multiple people have pointed out why those posts are non-apologies that reinforce what was hurtful about the comic itself and also call you idiots. If it’s about how I haven’t learned my lesson, rest assured that I am placing the blame on your viewpoint by inferring that you are choosing to interpret my message as offensive."
qglas asked: Yo I think you meant well but seriously you need to read some of the commentary on your apology and the comic and realize that all this hate you're getting isn't just people being big meanies, it's valid critique of a really problematic and hurtful post. You are not the victim here. You need to see past your hurt feelings to what people are actually saying and why people are actually upset.
Nah, I totally see where you’re coming from. Actually, I have read the criticism and for the most part I agree with it. However, I’ve gotten a lot of messages that read “go kill yourself” and tell me to “fuck off you bitch”. Those are not critiques, those are cruel, hateful messages.
Okay but you have yet to post a single thing anywhere showing that you agree with it or even understand it. Instead you’ve thrown up a victim-card non-apology that only restates your original argument, reinforces every problematic aspect of what you originally did in addition to throwing a tantrum about how everyone critiquing you is an idiot. You’re doing the same thing on your post about “oh gee thank you for your support why are people so being mean when i’m just trying to ~*~help them~*~” Go read the critiques not just of your post but of your fauxpology itself for the post. People continue to be mad at you because you’re doubling-down and continuing the same bs.
