Hi everyone!

I want to bring your attention to the #notacosplayer project run by Eddie of Food and Cosplay (facebook, tumblr).

Pretty angry at those photos right? Yeah, me too. The top one is me and six of the other cosplayers are extremely close friends of mine. (I’ve tagged their pages if you click on the photos!)

#notacosplayer is here to tackle the bullying within the cosplay community and especially that from outside. A lot of people, too many people believe that you have to be a thin, white woman with large boobs and an incredibly attractive face to be “allowed” to cosplay, and then what? If you are you’re brandished a slut/whore, a fake geek and only doing it for male attention. Yes there are a small handful of people who do infact cosplay for attention and have no interest in the characters, but for the people with a genuine love of what they’re doing, this is massively hurtful.

Comments like the ones above are received on a daily basis for a lot of cosplayers, whether it be a sly remark from another convention goer, on a facebook page where “well its just a picture on the internet” or some other form of online forum, the comments are read and they’re upsetting.

Cosplayers spend countless hours picking costumes, hunting down where the best place to get them from is or locating the most realistic parts for a costume. They send off designs and reference to commissioners to ensure that their piece is perfect and just how they want it, constantly giving feedback and input on their item. Some other cosplayers spend hours and hours slaving away with cuts and burns to create something they’re proud of and love.

They take a picture and hang it with absolute pride at how awesome they look, how they replicated their favorite character in their own way. They show it to their friends who all say how awesome it is and they share it around.

And for what?

Definitely not for some random person off the internet to feel the need to comment and chip in, ignoring every ounce of effort and accuracy on a costume. Friend, you found this image probably because you’re a fan of what I’m cosplaying from, could you comment on my costume please?
No, straight for the jugular, right in the “you’re not good enough to cosplay because…”

"You’re #notacosplayer because…”


Well I am. And Everyone else who says their a cosplayer is a cosplayer. The rules of cosplay aren’t written on attractiveness or likeness, they’re written on costume play.

So stand proud guys. Bullying will not be tolerated anymore. Share your stories and lets stop this horrible taboo where we never speak about the nasty comments we receive. Its a major part and its driving out incredible members of our community. Negativity won’t be tolerated anymore.

You’re all amazing and incredible and you can do whatever you set your mind to. Don’t let these comments put you off doing that dream character or starting cosplaying. Stand up proud and where that costume, show bullies and negativity that you don’t care…

YOU’RE FABULOUS.

fun fact

  • yelling at someone when they’re crying? funnily enough, that’s probably not going to make them stop. neither is insulting them. especially if the insult has to do with the fact that they’re crying. those are the things that are probably going to make them want to cry more. and feel worse. wow! that’s fun

10 Questions I Want Those Defending Adrian Peterson’s Brutal Beating of His 4-Year-Old Son to Answer

numbdarkness:

1) What behavior might a 4-year-old exhibit that you feel would warrant the child being beaten to the point that they bled, and had wounds on multiple areas of their body?

2) If we were talking about Adrian Peterson’s daughter, and not his son, would you still feel the same way?

3) You do understand that there’s a difference between spanking a child and assaulting one with a weapon, right?

4) If a parent beating a 4-year-old child so badly that the child bleeds doesn’t constitute child abuse, what does?

5) If you believe that “because this is how I was raised” is deemed a valid excuse to beat a child, then do you accept racism and bigotry by those who would also claim that’s “how they were raised”?

6) Decades ago, very young girls were often legally married off to much older men. You do realize that simply because we’ve done something in the past, doesn’t mean that we should still keep doing it in the future, correct? Just because you were whipped with wooden sticks as a child doesn’t mean that we should continue using weapons to beat our children.

7) If an adult would go to jail for doing something to an adult – like beating one with a wooden stick until they bled and had multiple wounds all over their body – why should it be legal for an adult to do that to a defenseless 4-year-old child?

8) Do you feel it’s appropriate to beat a child with a weapon so severely that the marks are still easily seen a week later?

9) When you were beaten as a child, did you actually learn to respect the parent beating you with a wooden stick, or did you fear the beating?

10) If four years old isn’t too young to brutally beat a child with a wooden stick, exactly what age is too young to beat a child with some kind of a weapon?

Witnesses say they asked Britney why she shaved her head and her response was, “I’m tired of plugging things into it. I’m tired of people touching me.”



i can never not reblog this



T-Pain: “That was the most beautiful thing in the world. Do you know why she was shaving her head? Because it was so important to other people. She is like, “Listen. Don’t touch my hair anymore. Stop touching my hair.” People were like, “We’ve got to make your hair before you go outside. You can’t leave.” She went … “Now I don’t have hair. What you going to do?”


The older I get the more her breakdown seems less ‘unbalanced’ and more ‘completely understandable’

"We can’t use A in our acronyms because it allows shitty allies to weasel themselves in!"

Perhaps if the lgbtqia community prioritized and cared more about ASEXUALS than about straight allies, we wouldn’t have this problem.

The A is not for allies. It has never been for allies. The A is for aces. Do not rob actual members of the lgbtqia community of the little representation we have for the sake of fucking straight people. 

The A is fucking necessary.

A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.

This is why we need feminism.
