i just wanted to clarify some things
artists know the risk they are taking when they post their art online. people are inevitably going to take it apart, color edit it, flip it around or otherwise post it uncredited.
saying that an artist shouldn’t post their work if they don’t want it bastardized is probably the stupidest stance on this subject you could take. if all artists followed this line of reasoning, there would be no art on the internet.
when an artist posts their work, they are trusting you to enjoy it respectfully. and when you betray that trust either knowingly or unknowingly, it’s like saying the artist’s time, skills and thoughts aren’t worth anything.
you are NOT entitled to an artists work just because they decided to trust you enough to share it with you.
an artist is within their right to feel upset that someone has used their work in a way they never intended it to be used. they are within their right to ask for it to stop and not happen again.
just because it’s “bound to happen” doesn’t mean it’s any less deplorable.
everyone talks about steve rogers being a huge advocate for equality
but have you considered how viciously bucky barnes would fight for equal rights for everybody
#Every now and again I have this thought of Bucky Barnes showing up at Planned Parenthood clinics #and working as an escort #and getting women to the front doors #wearing his sleeveless shirt so that EVERYONE CAN SEE THE ARM #and then sitting on the stoop #quietly polishing knives #and glaring at each protester in turn until there’s just this silent and uneasy crowd surrounding him # and Bucky just sits there #cleans his knives #and smiles (via bonesbuckleup)

The main reason I did Captain America was because I wanted to get out of my own head and stop taking my work so seriously. I’d had enough. I was like, “I want to train! I want to be a supergirl! I want a machine gun! I want to look fabulous and be surrounded by hunky bare-chested men! I want to make a movie that people come away from feeling amazing and invincible!
