wrenhead said: the artistic style in the tumblr cartoon satire looked like a small afterthought to me. most of it focuses on what people on tumblr are asking for in terms of representation. if this had just been a complaint about artistic style i wouldn't have taken issue with it. but as a thick, short racially ambiguous woman, i do. it belittled my existence and my right to representation. whether that's what you intended or not, you should accept that you fucked up instead of stubbornly denying and defending
sorry mang, but i make it a huge point not to apologize for anything unless im truly in the wrong about something and this is unfortunately not one of those instances
the reaction i’m seeing and feeling paints a different picture. even if it wasn’t your intention to insult people like me, that seems to be what you’ve done. if i’m gonna be generous about this, maybe this is just a case of carelessness in wording on your part. even so, if you accidentally step on someone’s toes, i’d think your reaction would be to acknowledge what you’ve done and apologize, not tell that person that their toes shouldn’t hurt and why. but whatever, please at least keep in mind, this isn’t some nameless bodiless entity called tumblr saying you’ve done wrong. it’s severely underrepresented people and people who support us that are upset at what you did, not some unfeeling non living website. referring to the people who take issue with your cartoon as “tumblr” is just as belittling to our existence, as well as our thoughts and feelings, as the cartoon itself. whether you see it that way or not.
AND SINCERELY FUCK YOU YOU FORGOT THE FUCK YOU
