Hi guys, I really need your help. This instagram user has been stealing and reposting artwork without permission. I’ve tried contacting them - before I’d ever been aware of their account they had blocked me, presumably because they saw I post my own art on my instagram and knew I wouldn’t want others doing it. So I set up another account today, messaged them and they deleted my comment without responding and temporarily made their account private.

A friend of mine messaged them about her art, and they basically said “You’re posting it online, this means anyone can do anything they want with it.” They then blocked her and posted her picture yet again in screenshot format, tagging her in a comment so that she’d see it but be unable to respond.

They know what they’re doing is wrong, and without your help they’re going to continue doing it. What’s worse is that there are people defending the thief when I speak up.

If you have an instagram account, can you leave a comment or even better, report them? Their copyright report system is so complicated so I understand if you don’t want to navigate all those pages, but even reporting as a scam/spam is as simple as a click and it’ll hopefully draw instagram’s attention to the matter.

I’d be so grateful for a signal boost, guys. I really appreciate you even reading this. It’s so disheartening as an artist to just watch this happen.

See that bolded section?

Like, I cannot believe how brazen this user is, they’re deliberately antagonising the artists they’re stealing from.

It’s sickening.

Map of the World by Natural Skin Color

i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening

actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d. 

THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.

Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.

I show this to my students every year. Just an ‘FYI’ kinda thing.
