"

We can talk about abuse, we can talk about consent, but we can’t be the judges and juries of an entire community, which is what a video addressing specific occurrences and individuals would, in effect, be. I sometimes feel like people are asking me to become a special investigations unit imbued with the power to try and convict a person without ever leaving my bedroom. Doing that would be impossible, terrifying, and possibly illegal.

And so we make videos about these problems generally. I made a video about what consent is and is not. And I’d like to make a video about how manipulative relationships work.

But making comments about situations which are ongoing or currently in the legal system…making judgements about people and deciding who is right and wrong…I am not capable of that. I wish we knew everything and could make these things simple, but we can’t. Realizing this limitation and struggling within it part of what triggered me feeling pretty shitty this week.

I can say, however, that I am listening very carefully, and when it seems like creators might be using their power to take advantage of their fans, I am acting on that…I just might not be able to do it publicly.

Hank Green answering if he is going to address abuse with a video in the comments of Vlogbrothers

I know a lot of people felt concerned about the Green brothers (not) addressing the issue and maybe this would make it clearer to those of us that don’t scroll through all the comments on every video.

from margo roth spiegelman, with hope

thetealeafdragon:

          i.
we dance on the edge
of a knife, every morning laden
with astriferous dreams, backs bowed
with the hopes we carry in perpetuum
not knowing what other motes to breathe.

this is us, we are
the incarnation of black against white,
stark contrasts that breathe and bleed
for their otherness.

     ii.
do as if i took to the sea
and set my sails for far-off harbors.
i am not odysseus, no wife and child
wait for me, i am unfettered, i am
unloved, except for a boy who misconstrues
the the very shape of my breastbone. 

do not follow me. do not follow me.
do not follow me. you wouldn’t
follow anyway.

i am telling you not to love me,
the thought of me, the paper girl
painted in gaudy colors.

          iii.
i cut my losses, i would cut
the cords of my heart if i thought
some anchor held me
to uncertain waters.

i am no citizen of empty dreams,
zanarkand fades at the first touch of light,
and i will not inhabit a glorious lie
even if affection should lie on the line.

Hello there, artists of nerdfighteria! After the success of the Nerdfighter Art Tier of last year’s Project for Awesome, I’m teaming up with the P4A team once again and need your help!
The P4A, as always, will be raising money to give to charities. However, some people have more time and talent to give than money (you know who you are) so we’d like to recruit you to provide creations for reward tiers in our IndieGoGo campaign. You create the artwork and it will be and sent to a fellow nerdfighter who claims the perk!
Ideally, you will be making 15+ items and you will be shipping them to Missoula, Montana to be distributed to the people who claimed the Nerdfighter Art Perk!
We’re looking for small, easily shipped items. This can include jewelry, knitwear, small plushies, small drawings and paintings, digital art prints, etc.
The pieces of art do not need to be nerdfighter-themed but it is highly encouraged! 
The estimated worth of the art should be about $25-30 because the perk will be sold for $40. That’s not a strict amount, just keep it in mind when making your proposals!
If you’re interested, you need to email us at nerdfighterart@gmail.com by October 10th with an example of what you have/will be creating and what quantity. A picture of it for us to see would be extra helpful when sorting through everyone’s submissions!
We will let you know if it’s reasonable and provide additional information around October 13th, giving you more than a month to complete your pieces.
We’re extremely excited to be working on this project again this year, we hope you’re excited too! ^-^
- Emma, Valerie, and Hank

There are just 10 days left to submit your nerdfighter art proposals!
