Heck yeah, mom.

Ever hear of LookHuman? You probably know them as the website that has apparel and accessories with catchy slogans and phrases that fit right in with the tumblr community’s sense of humor.

Well, that’s because a large number of those catchy slogans and phrases, along with artwork, were made by tumblr users and used without credit or permission.

That’s right: LookHuman repeatedly and routinely steals/plagiarizes and profits off the work and words of others.

Don’t believe me? Take a look:

And this is just a short list of the examples I could find easily.

They have also stolen work from other websites as well:

LookHuman is a company that preys on artists. They profit off other people’s work. None of the money from their sales go back to the original artists or originators of the artwork, slogans, and phrases they use. None of these people were credited.

Bottom line: See a cute shirt with a catchy phrase on LookHuman’s website? Chances are it’s already being sold by the original poster.

Don’t like seeing companies like this thrive? Don’t allow them to.

Mother arrested after leaving kids in the car during job interview because she couldn’t afford childcareMarch 27, 2014
Shanesha Taylor is a homeless, single mother of 2 children, who was arrested for child abuse this week. Taylor left her children, ages 6 and 2 years old, in her Dodge Durango while she attended a job interview in Scottsdale, Arizona.
A passerby found the children in the car, with the engine turned off and the windows cracked open. Once Taylor returned to the car, 45 minutes later, she informed the police officer that she did not have a babysitter for her children.
“She was upset. This is a sad situation all around. She said she was homeless. She needed the job. Obviously not getting the job. So it’s just a sad situation,” said Scottsdale Police Sergeant Mark Clark.
She was arrested and booked into jail for child abuse.
Her children are now in CPS custody.

Update from Prison Culture: 
An email from Amanda Bishop who has organized a fundraising drive for Shanesha offers the following additional information:

Shanesha has been in jail over a week. She will be out within the next few days when her bail is done by her family. I do not know if the family would like me sharing any information regarding the jail she is at.
She has plans to get a specific lawyer when she is out. Her children are with family

Ms. Bishop also responded to a question about where the funds raised would be directed:

“All money from this fundraiser is deposited into a bank account of Shaneshas mother. The money is currently being used to bail her out. The money collected afterwards will be used for the care of herself and her children.”

Here is a local report where Ms. Bishop is quoted about the case here.
There is currently no more information available. @lifeandmorelife and I would like to encourage everyone who wants to support Shanesha to please donate to the fundraiser for now. You can also continue to spread the word about this story through your networks. A newsreport about this story is here.
We have been in touch with some folks based in Arizona, are gathering more information, and will provide updates as they become available.

Update #1 (4:30 p.m. central)Shanesha is still in jail at this point. I was able to learn that she has a hearing scheduled on Friday at 8:30 am. Perhaps, she’ll be able to make bail at that point. Please keep donating to the fundraiser.


BOOOOOOOOOOOOOST..

Garon Wade and his husband Jamie were prepared for their son in 2012. They were not prepared for what strangers had to say.
(Cab Driver in Florida directly after getting in) Where’s his mom?  (Us) He doesn’t have a mom.  (Long Awkward Silence)
(Cashier at a Surf Shop, see’s just me and my little boy)  Oh man, you were given Daddy duty today huh? (Me)  It’s Daddy Duty everyday at my house bro. (Confused look)
Do you think he’ll be more likely to grow up gay? (Me)  No. But I’ll love him for whoever he is, so it doesn’t really matter does it?
(Man on a plane next to me, completely out of nowhere)  So did you leave his mom in DC or are you taking the baby to his mom in Florida?  (Me) He doesn’t have a mom, he has two Dads. (Complete Silence)
Are you guys going to tell him he’s adopted one day? (Us)  Yea, but I’m pretty sure even if we didn’t, at some point he’d figure that one out right?
You shouldn’t take babies on planes for the first many months because they get sick right away.  (Us). He’s already been on 20 flights. (Silence)
(Random Guy on the street) Where’s his mom?  (Us) She didn’t want him, so I guess that makes us the next best thing.
(Random Stranger at the grocery store) That baby’s so cute. Does your wife breastfeed?  (Me).  No he’s got two Dads so we give him formula. (Lady)  What??
(Another Random Lady at the grocery store).  That baby is so young.  You should NOT be out with him like this at the grocery store! (My husband) Oh I’m sorry are you a pediatrician?  (Lady) Excuse me?  (Husband)  Are you a pediatrician?  (Lady)  Well, no.  (Husband) Then I’m not that interested in what you have to say.  My pediatrician said it’s fine to take him out. Have a good one.
(Yet another Random Stranger) Where’s his mom? (Me) Where’s your mom?

The Funniest Things Strangers Said to Us After We Adopted Our Dude

(via ponylunchbox)

The most important reason why we need the word “cis” in our lexicon is because it tells the thousands of young trans people out there right now who are struggling with their sense of identity, some of whom do not even realise yet that that is what they are doing, that there is something that you can be that is not what you were told you could be.

I did not know the word “cis” when I was 8 years old, imitating the handwriting of the girls in my class. I did not possess this language when I was 15, and attempting to put on makeup in secret without the guidance of my mother or my aunts, and copying the clothing styles of the girls in my high school. I did not have this language when I was 24, with hair down to my waist, wearing my girlfriend’s clothes to work. I did not have this language at 33 years old, before I proposed to my wife, or at 37, when we decided to have a child before we got any older.

I didn’t even know this language at 40, when I finally understood that the days of my life were not going to be many more in number if I did not attempt to find out if the feelings I had been feeling all my life would lead me to a better life.

But I certainly knew the word “transsexual”. I knew the words, “Renée Richards” and “Wendy Carlos”. I knew the word “freak”. I knew the word “mutilation”. I knew the words “liver damage”. I knew the words “shorter life span”. I knew the words “no children”. I knew the word “faggot”.

We need the word “cis”, because those children need to know that their choices aren’t limited, not anymore. Those children need to know that the alternative to “man” isn’t “freak” and the alternative to “woman” isn’t “abomination”. Those children need to know that “abnormal” means “statisically fewer in number”, not “unnatural”.

We need the word “cis”, because all the children of this Earth need to know that “cis” is just one thing you can be, and not what you necessarily are.
