geodude96 said: This isn't as important as other diversity issues, but I think it'd be nice to see the occasional left-handed character in comics. I seem to remember noticing in Bryan Q. Miller's Batgirl book that Stephanie appeared to be left-handed on several occasions (such as holding a pencil in her left hand), but I have yet to re-read that run so I can point them out specifically. Like I said, not a big deal at all, but it'd be nice to see someone writing or throwing left-handed sometimes.

My son is a leftie. 

I know a lot of left-handed people have absolutely no problem mirroring things they learn from right-handed people. My son was not one of them. Everything anyone tried to teach him with their right hands was a disaster. He had an extraordinarily difficult time learning to use a pen and pencil, despite being able to read at highly advanced levels. We had to have my mother-in-law teach him how to tie shoes after he simply could not process the way we tried to teach him…she being a leftie herself, he learned with one quick demonstration. 

Saddest was when he was learning his katas for karate as an eight year old, he was completely baffled by which way to turn with each new move and it was very painful, very difficult for him to learn. It still crops up in small ways.

You’re right that as hands go, it’s not the most difficult one to be dealt, and he laughs about it now, but for a kid with severe social anxiety, it was very disheartening for him. 

I have in the past asked for characters to be left-hand-oriented, but in the hustle of creating monthly books, the message is sometimes forgotten or ignored. It’s a worthwhile idea, I will definitely give it some thought. Thanks!

I’m left-handed and I spent years writing check marks ‘backwards’ until I forced, in either 2nd or 3rd grade, to switch because… reasons. I’m a senior in high school and still have minor issues with handwriting because I was often forced into the standard right handed way of doing things. My problem is mostly with how fast I write. In order to compensate, I delete articles and stuff so I end up having really broken English in notes. Sometimes even in things I type I have this issue.

A 10-Year-Old Goldfish Had Surgery To Remove A Tumor, Expected To Live Another 20 Years

This scene threw me off for a second because I’m American so it’s Where’s Waldo? to me instead of Where’s Wally? but, thankfully, I remembered.

These are screenshots of this DannyWiiU guy commenting on videos of girls, as we all know he typically does.  But what’s very specific about these is that each of these girls is underage.  And considering I’ve read him make comments to ladies about how their burping “makes (me) hard”, I don’t think I have to take a very big imaginative jump in wondering what exactly he’s trying to accomplish even with these underage girls.  At no point has he threatened these young ladies (as far as I’ve been able to read), although as you can see at least one of them has had to block him for constantly begging her to burp.  The other girls are just girls who are young and goofing off making what they think are funny burping videos.  And he comments on their videos multiple times asking them to burp more and asking them for their usernames on other video apps and social networks.

Look, I can take care of myself just fine, if ever I needed to.  And many other women in our community are also very strong themselves.  We are forming our own case against this person for what he’s said to us specifically.  But that’s not the issue here.  Harassing women is one thing, but harassing young girls is especially heinous.  This is just plain not freaking right.  This cannot continue.  Somebody has to freaking do something.

To the People Who Are Overly Defensive of Doug

Yes, some criticism can be harsh and unnecessary. It’s very true. But some can also be very beneficial. The people who become very hostile in protecting him do not realize that they are just filling his head more.
His ego has gotten way out of hand, and his recent work suffers for it. He also seems to be in denial of the decline of the site. If you honestly say how you feel about his new videos in a constructive way, maybe he’ll make a change. What his reviews have become shows why pandering is detrimental.
I’m not saying we don’t love him. We are grateful and we owe him a lot.  Sorry about it, though. I had to say it.

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
