if you don’t think this carries an important message about our society then you are what is wrong with human society today

And this is why when you see a post empowering and uplifting black women, do not invade it with “don’t you mean all women?” No, because this is not the reality of “all women.”

This is so fucking sad

i can’t handle this. This distorted perception society has that lightness equates to perfection.

harlan ellison on getting paid as a creative worker

know your worth! know the worth of your work!

i’m all for working for free on communal DIY projects. i love writing for zines and blogs, i love acting for tiny tiny productions, i love playing music with friends.

but when you are out there, producing creative work as your means of living — know your worth! if you get a gig, get that money! if you’re working with millionaires, get your due! DON’T fall for these traps that tell you you’re doing it for “exposure”!

do work for free on your own time, and your friends’ time, all the time. but when you’re on someone else’s clock? bill those fuckers!
