Drops of Jupiter

I'm a 29 year old British woman who works as a Bibliographic Data Assistant. I'm also an aspiring author.

Expect to find a lot of fandom-related things here (mainly anime/manga for now) and whatever else catches my interest.

If you want to talk to me about anything (within reason - no personal questions please!), then the best thing to do is to send me an ask message. I'm not on Tumblr much during the week because I work full-time, but I'll try to respond ASAP.

ATTENTION!!! THIS is the CEO of the popular online store shopjeen (Erin Yogasundram) proudly wearing fucking black face on her Instagram page. DO NOT support this business. I am appalled that I gave money to this bigoted scumbag. Not to mention, their website had LOADS of “omg ghetto fabulous!!” garments and accessories modeled by - you guessed it - white models (sometimes donning cornrows). PLEASE spread the word as I know that this store is popular for Tumblr users.

Hi, so this post is utter bullshit.

If you took 10 seconds to go to this women’s blog before reblogging, you could easily find out that the person in this photo is not Erin.  Erin is a WOC and looks like this:

Again I’m NOT a small child with blue eyes. I’m a WOC, small business owner who is now receiving death threats due to a disgusting, defaming tumblr post that is surfacing. I did Instagram that photo on my personal account, with a caption MOCKING the ridiculousness of the Lil Wayne costume. It was pretty convenient to leave that part out, and frame me to be the person in the photo (who I repeat is clearly a CHILD). I am a full-figured, brown skinned woman with colored hair and brown eyes. Not to mention, I would NEVER do this.     I employ an extremely talented, diverse team and they make Shop Jeen the amazing success that it is. The thought that the spread of this inaccurate post hindering the company’s growth makes me sick to my stomach.     PLEASE fact check before you reblog stuff like this- this is serious.    I am absolutely distraught that my company’s name is being dragged through the mud without probable cause. This is traumatizing.this is why I look like. The person dressed up as lil wayne in that photo is a small child. The caption, which was left out of the now viral tumblr post defaming me and my company was shaming and mocking the ridiculous costume choice.

From her tumblr, she wrote this:

and when the threats did not stop:

you can read those posts here and here.

But of course, have I forgotten where I am? Ah yes, the land of tumblr where gullible is always written on the ceiling.  Or so they say.

This really sucks for her. Tumblr is the worst at fact checking before spreading shit.

katara: *heals korras legs and gives a nostalgic speech about hope*

me: *is bitter about her lack of a screen time throughout the korra series/the way she always ties everything she says back to water as if we need to be reminded what she do but can’t help but scream YAS ! at the top of my lungs because she is and forever will be part of my heart*

The Legend of Korra - The Old Masters

OKAY. OKAAAAAAY. I didn’t think it was possible but The Legend of Korra actually made me cry. IT MADE ME CRY. From Korra’s PTSD to Katara being the awesome character she’s always been to frikkin’ TOPH. I can’t. I just can’t. It was beautiful.

Since I haven’t seen any posts about it on Tumblr, I figured I’d make the post myself! #heardwhilstdisabled is a trending hashtag on twitter, has been on-and-off for awhile obviously, and it’s about the common, casual microagressions the disabled of all stripes have to deal with. It’s UK- and AU-based primarily from the looks of it but I would think it applies to most disabled people - I certainly know I’ve heard my share of this kind of ableism. Here’s more tweets (source is The Indepedant):
