GoFundMe is allowing a campaign for people to donate money to Darren Wilson, the cop who killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.

When called on this, and how it violates their ToS, GoFundMe’s response was to delete the hateful, disgusting, racist comments from the donations. They refused to end the campaign. Apparently it is only “promoting hate, violence, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime” if people can see the deplorable sentiments behind the donations. Somehow deleting the evidence of those sentiments magically changes what those donations are for: rewarding a police officer for killing Michael Brown.

This is absolutely a direct violation of GoFundMe’s ToS, yet GoFundMe is refusing to act. These are people giving money to an individual that gunned down an unarmed black teen. He is profiting from this killing, and it directly promotes racial intolerance and violence. There is no reason why GoFundMe should allow this campaign to continue…

… Except that GoFundMe gets 5% of the cut. In this case, 5% of 235k is $12,500. GoFundMe and Darren Wilson both are profiting off the killing of Michael Brown, and GoFundMe has decided they’d rather take their cut of the money than follow their own ToS. $12,500 is apparently what it takes to abandon justice.

Please, join in the boycott of GoFundMe, and consider signal boosting this.

Thank you.

Go fund me has done other shitty things as well.

can you imagine though…
one day thor is reading up on currents and he sees an article about captain america playing ball with a kid and its the make-a-wish foundation
so thor gets curious and interested and asks Steve to get him involved and they find out a little girl with cancer just wants a tea party with a real prince and thor is like “i am a prince of asgard” and he goes and has a tea party with her and brings apple tarts “because, little midgardian maid, i am told it is tradition to have sweets with tea” and the apple tarts are made with the mythical apples that keep asgardians healthy and after the tea party, the doctors are mystified how she is miraculously healed.

1, 19, and 23! <3

1. Describe your comfort zone—a typical you-fic.

Mmm, probably something with lots of angst with touches of fluff here and there. Also, having society and/or circumstances and/or self be the antagonist, rather than an actual person, because that would usually mean punishing said person and I have Strong Feelingstm about systems of punishment and imprisonment that make punishing said person difficult.

19. Stephen King once said that his muse is a man who lives in the basement. Do you have a muse?

There’s a very distracting prompter in my head that will grab certain ideas from other movies, books, comics, tv shows, fic prompts, and what-ifs, and will run with them until they run out of steam or get distracted by something that’s newer and shinier. That prompter also tend to come out when I’m in the shower, or falling asleep, or some other place nice and quiet. So less a muse and more the world around me combined with a need for distracting myself from everyday life…even when I’m in class or trying to do homework.

23. If you were to revise one of your older fics from start to finish, which would it be and why?

Less a fic and more a series of one-shots, None of This Was Supposed to Happen. Because, as the series title suggests, it really wasn’t supposed to happen and was just supposed to be an angsty one-shot and I decided I needed to keep going afterward. So I’m not too happy about how it turned out. I’d probably just keep the first fic in the series and try to make it a bit more…complete or something.

thor does the ice bucket challenge. he has to go to jotunheim where the ice actually affects him

I just did an arc with Warren Ellis — and no one else on the planet could get away with this, because I think this is like harassment? — But Warren felt like there was a depiction of Spider-Woman where it looked like her waist perhaps didn’t contain any internal organs. And he suggested very quietly … ‘You should fix that, or else I will come to your house and nail your feet to the floor and set your house on fire.’ … And it totally got fixed!

never forget that marvel chose to racebend a white character into a poc and then made also made the choice for that poc character to be a nazi.

never forget that marvel chose to give his in-story equal, a white guy, more screen time, more characterisation and chose to make him the “good guy, fanboy stand in”, and because of that there was a giant fan movement when he was killed off.

never forget that even if marvel chooses to be all “HAHA LOOK THE POC WE MADE PEOPLE THINK WAS A NAZI WAS A GOOD GUY ALL ALONG!” they still chose to make the poc character a nazi in the first place.

never forget jasper sitwell.
