I cannot believe Curvy Kate’s audacity to outright steal the work of a high school student for some insipid marketing message.
Shame on you, Curvy Kate. Shame on you.

SIGNAL BOOST RIP THEM A NEW ONE TUMBLR!
IT’S NOT EVEN A THING YOU SHOULD MARKET
NOT ONLY DID YOU STEAL THE GIRL’S WORK
YOU FUCKING HAD NO IDEA WHAT SHE WAS TRYING TO SAY
THEY COMPLETELY RUINED HER MESSAGE AND TURNED IT UPSIDE DOWN. WHAT THE FUCK. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK I’M SO FUCKING MAD
Woooww that is some sketch ass shit,
Literally not illegal, nor near as close as some other kinds of plagiarism that businesses have done.
Also, why are people upset about this? An art piece calling out the misogynists in society is instead turned around into an advertisement about female confidence and choice empowerment?
Art piece: Different insults and negative labels given to women by men and other women, based on where the skirt ends on the body.
Advert: Telling women that, no matter where you like your skirt to end, they have it in stock. It’s your choice. Are you Daring? Provocative? Cheeky? etc etc etc. Come be yourself with our products.
Please, don’t be that person. Nobody likes that person.

This response has been so ripped out of context it’s hilarious. It poses such a vibrant double standard.
On the one hand, men aren’t supposed to idealize women. There’s so much advertising and marketing made specifically to women to make them look a specific way, and some women will only feel valued if they conform to this standard. They feel they HAVE to wear the make up, that they aren’t beautiful without it. If straight men cannot appreciate an imperfect woman, we are the asshole.
On the other hand, if we try to support women who are in this position by assuring them they are beautiful, or valuable, or in any way a wonderful person without putting on all the makeup, clothing, so on and so forth, then we’re ostracized by trying to limit a woman’s freedom to do as she pleases. We’re STILL the asshole.
So, if we prefer a woman that’s skinny and decked out in makeup, we’re an asshole. If we prefer a woman that’s plain, we’re also an asshole.
Too often is the message this comic tries to portray portrayed in a poor manner, like this. Makeup is never the issue at hand. This comic is supposed to point out that women can do what women want to do, and we shouldn’t try to tell them to be anything different. Good point, but it’s entirely lost behind the facade of makeup. This comic is, almost assuredly, more often than not seen as a message to men to refrain from telling women they are beautiful without makeup.
Instead, you as artists/SJWs/whatever need to find a better way to get the REAL point across without posting something that is almost certainly just a means of yelling at guys that are merely trying to do what is being asked of them by women; see them for who they are, and not what they wear.
Bottled water is terrible for the environment, ridiculously expensive, and in most cases less safe than drinking tap water.
Here’s why you should never buy another bottle.
Get this to 1,000,000 notes.
no seriously though. “one of the biggest scams in history” is NOT an exaggeration…not even a little bit.
I KEEP TRYING TO TELL PEOPLE THIS
I remember this shit from economics. Family still won’t believe me.
Tap water: Requires refillable container to be portable. Refillable container must be carried around once water is empty.
Bottled water: No need to bring a refillable container of water. Prefilled, disposable, recyclable. Bring multiple bottles to remove the need to find a water spout for refills. Did I mention you can recycle the bottles?
Point of fact: Bottled water is for being out and about, not being in your house. The infinite convenience of portable water in a recyclable container is well worth the ~11.4 cents each bottle costs you (35 bottles/case @ $4.00/case, California price)
"oh my god, you’re seriously going to pay college kids $15 an hour to flip burgers? get a real job!"
a real job? you mean, like, an internship at the white house?
okay, well what about the national democratic party?
what about interning at the united nations?
wow damn it’s almost like our economy functions on stealing labour from hardworking young people, regardless of whether their jobs are “real” or not
Pay does not equal the difficulty of work
Pay = Demand for work, knowledge required for position, employee behavior, contribution, and dedication to the job, and most importantly, THE ABILITY TO, AT BARE MINIMUM, PAY FOR YOUR EXPENSES AND SOME EXTRA TO PUT BACK INTO THE ECONOMY.
Flipping burgers currently: Very high demand, little to no prior knowledge needed, dedicated employees, inability to pay for expenses.
Shut up and pay the poor working people.
