Wait a minute…

I have been laughing at this for hours now…

So, true story. The woman in this photo is Kendra Kaplan. Her husband was in Iraq for twelve months but the military has this thing called leave. Some of us may recognize the concept from old episodes of Star Trek. In this photo she is five months pregnant after conceiving her second child during her husband’s leave. That envelope in her hand is the ultrasound results. She waited for him to come home to find out if it was a girl or a boy.
There’s been several articles about it.The photo resulted in this woman receiving so much hate mail, from both internet cut-ups and the actual media, that she even took a paternity test and provided proof of her husband’s leave schedule. Her real life friends have stopped talking to her over these rumors.  
Oh, and by the way, that baby bump is a two year old by now. People are still shitting on this woman over a nasty internet meme two years later.
So in short, you’re mocking a faithful wife for something that isn’t any of our damn business anyway and has long since been disproven. 
Good job Internet.

Thank you for this!

Finally a rebloggable version of this idiotic post.

So I found this comment shazams

I’ll be honest… that is pretty disrespectful. Or maybe not that. Maybe it’s just straight up ignorance. 80 isn’t even half of what Nova pays me for a 1-2 minute animation.
It’s because of stuff like THIS  that way too many artists are under paid and devalue their work. Because so many people don’t understand the amount of work and time that goes into any art piece. Whether it’s animation or illustration.
I’ll do the math for you so you know why this kinda ticks me off. On average I spend about 30-40 hours for a 1-2 minute animation. Now this video is about 11.5 minutes long so I would most likely spend about 345 hours on it if not more. That would be about 14 days straight if I work with no sleep, breaks, eating, etc. Just working non stop. Now if I only made 80 dollars from this and worked 345 hours I would be making about 0.23 for every hour that I worked.
0.23
I’ll be getting your pocket change for an hours worth of work.
This is the problem many artists are faced with. And it is extremely sad and frustrating.
