Since everyone is shedding light on Sam Pepper for all of his sexual harassment towards women in his videos, I think we need to visit a topic that has never really been fully brought to everyone’s attention. Which is Shane Dawson.

Aside from his obvious blackface:

omfg stop, this man’s advice and meeting him 4 times now, has literally kept me going in my shitty life, I cannot believe anybody takes this seriously. Shane Lee Yaw(if you’re gonna point someone out, use their real name) has said MANY times that his jokes and his forms of comedy are merely that, jokes: He’s apologized for hurting people, and it’s not fair to blame Shane, when many of his problems, stemmed from his dysfunctional childhood. Do not shit on the very person who has made a difference in multiple people’s lives.

You cannot excuse someone’s problematic behavior because they have made a positive impact on you personally. What “Shane Lee Yaw” is doing is 100% wrong and tragic childhoods do not pardon someone for being offensive. While you personally may appreciate and care about Shane, you must accept that he is doing inappropriate things. (You can take this from me personally,being a fan Miley Cyrus for some time now, you learn to accept and condemn behavior regardless of your love of someone) While it is okay that you like Shane and he has done good things for you personally, it is not okay to ignore the terrible things he has done and is doing. 

I’m done trying with people. I wasn’t necessarily excusing his actions, but justifying them in my opinion(s). I cannot feel anger towards a person who did not only have a positive influence on my life, but saved it in every essence of the word. He’s helped me so much in my life, too the point where it’s unfair to say he’s a bad person. Although, I don’t necessarily think he’s the best person in the world he’s definitely had more positive influences on young adults than negative ones. I’m sorry, but I cannot simply agree with you on this. If we’re still pointing people out, let’s try Katy Perry. Her song “Kissed a Girl” says kissing between women does not count as infidelity. Also, her song “This is How We Do” is incredibly racist, so if Shane’s to blame, than so are many others.

1.  I cannot feel anger towards a person who did not only have a positive influence on my life, but saved it in every essence of the word. 

You don’t have to be angry you just have to accept that what he did was wrong. 

2. Although, I don’t necessarily think he’s the best person in the world he’s definitely had more positive influences on young adults than negative ones. 

I am not discrediting his positive influence on people I 100% believe that and although I’ve never watched his videos I’ve always seen Shane as a generally good hearted person. I’m sure he’s also inadvertently told a lot of kids it’s kind of okay to be racist and joke about rape (amongst other things. 

3. If we’re still pointing people out

I literally gave u an example of a problematic person I happen to still like I was empathizing 

4. Katy Perry. Her song “Kissed a Girl” says kissing between women does not count as infidelity.

Ok Katy Perry is literally one of the most problematic people in the entire world like I could write a 10 page essay on why Katy Perry is a terrible person. 

5. Shane’s to blame, than so are many others.

Thats literally exactly my point. 

Lastly, I’m afraid you’re not taking the action of using blackface too seriously. There is a lot of historical racism drudged up by that hateful action and I suggest you look it up because it can actually help you in the long run be a more socially aware person. 

I understand you love Shane Dawson and your reasons for it are clearly validated. I just urge you to understand that just because you love or respect someone doesn’t mean you can excuse their actions. Shane has done a lot of great things but he has done a lot of terrible things as well. I hope you see my point.

He has so many “characters” of hispanic and african american descent that are horribly offensive. He tacks on offensive “ghetto” accents and tangled cheap wigs and gives the characters the stereotypical racial persona’s like prostitutes, criminals, maids, cholas, etc.

Just a random example of one of his characters that is a maid with an offensive hispanic accent who he depicted having sex with a dog 

image

He was made popular for his character named Shanaynay who he’s played for years, every video the character is featured in contains extremely racist content. She’s depicted with a “ghetto” accent who makes horrible jokes. I mean there are countless videos of that character and every single one of them contain racist, homophobic, sexist and just outright offensive slurs and jokes. Just go to youtube, type “shane dawson shanaynay” and dozens of videos will pop up and i guarantee each one will have extremely offensive jokes and content.

In character or not, Shane’s videos always contain rape jokes, molestation jokes, racist jokes, sexist jokes, pedophilic jokes and homophobic jokes. Whether he’s in a costume and wig while doing it or just him out of character speaking. I actually lost count on how many times this man has said “F**got” over the years.

I am just making this post based on personal experience watching these videos and I am 100% sure there is way more horrible stuff so if you have anymore to say about this please feel free to reblog and add it on because I didn’t even go into depth of his videos and this is what i found with just about 10 minutes of searching things up. 

Shane has been making youtube videos for over 5 years now and he’s slid by with no repercussion or consequences of his seriously offensive actions.

I have finally hit my breaking point. For as long as I can remember I have endured my mother’s abuse, whether it is verbal, emotional, or as seen here physical. I can expect some act of violence on a daily basis, and her beating me is not an usual occurrence, but today something snapped. My mother did this unprovoked, and this time she didn’t stop. Usually it’s bad for a little while and then she’s done, today it went on for what seemed like forever. At a certain point I decided I was going to do something I never do, call the police. You see, my mother is a highly respected and very well known person where I live. She is on the board of ed, worked for CPS for many years, and is close personal friends with people like the local chief of police, director of our local CPS unit, and so on. I always knew that calling wouldn’t go anywhere and just upset her more, but today I had to try. While she was kicking me I found my opportunity, and somehow managed to get away from someone more than twice my size. I ran as fast as I could, knocking things over behind my, trying to find a phone. I dialed and they listened and my mother proceeding to beat me over it, while I screamed for help. For the second time today, I managed to get away from her and ran to my room. I barely had enough time to lock my door, before she starting trying to get it, to the point that she ripped my door off the frame. I decided I was going to stay locked in there, until the police came. The past few months I have been collecting evidence against her, voice recordings, pictures like these, and videos of her violence, so they couldn’t dispute what was going on. But I was dead wrong. 

When the officer finally came up to my room, I attempted to tell him my side of the story, but before I could get a sentence out he silenced me. HE told me that this was my mothers house, and I needed to live by her rules. If I didn’t she had the right to punish me. He also told me to be tankful for her, because he wanted to press assault charges against me. finally, he refused, despite my begging, for him to take me to a shelter for teens. 

I am utterly disgusted by the injustice that occurred today. I pray there is no one else out there who is living in such a situation. I am not sure exactly what I am getting out of writing this, except maybe that it’s just nice to be able to open up about this, when I have had to keep it a secret my whole life. idk. sorry for posting such heavy shit. 

Signal boost the fuck out of this

Firstly, thank you to everyone who has cared or been affected by my post. The overwhelming support that has poured in is truly remarkable. Over the past 24 hours I have received upwards of 1500 messages, asking about when this was, how I am doing now, and how can they help. To begin, this post was made way back in June after I was so disgusted with the way that the police treated me, they downright victim blaming, and I wanted it to be heard. It originally got about 100 notes and I was satisfied knowing that my feelings were validated. When I woke up yesterday morning I found that it had grown to about 4000 notes, overnight, and continued to amplify over the past two days.

In hopes of putting some of your worries to rest, I am no longer living in my mother’s house. It was a long summer, while I essentially exhausted every legal option I had to get out. CPS started an investigation that went nowhere, I tried to find another family member or friend that would take me in but it didn’t pan out, and even attempted to get myself emancipated, but without having a steady income it didn’t end well. Then almost two weeks ago, my mother caught onto what I was trying to do, and while I was away for the weekend, texted me telling me not to come back. She made it so that I couldn’t collect my belongings, and only had a backpack full of things in my possession. Currently I am staying with family until I have the means to get a place of my own, and trying to get myself enrolled into a local school, so that I can finish out my senior year.

I made this post somewhat naively, never thinking of the impact it could have. So when, so many of you have gone to my inbox sharing your own stories of hardship (and I encourage more of you too do so), it gave my perspective on how big this post became. Seeing the influence I have right now, I want use it to enact some change. The tumblr community is infamous for discussing change, but not acting upon it. Many of you have voiced strong opinions and a great desire to help. After thinking this over (and my that I mean coming up with hastily this last night) , I decided to startup a paypal account as means to donate to charities that work to end child and domestic abuse.

The donations, as they are received, will go into a PayPal account I set up. The following is what I plan to do with the money donated:

            -The first 300 donated will go towards necessities (As previously stated: I was kicked out, and am in need of some basics)

            -After 300 is reached, 90% of every donation thereafter will go to Joyful Heart Foundation

- The other 10% will go into a saving account for my college endeavors. (I am basically on my own to pay for it, and can only legally work part time) 

Not trying to offend anyone, but it is my understanding that if gif’s from a tv show, and photographs of Starbucks’s coffee cups can get millions of notes, why can’t an attempt to make a difference regarding something so horrible and yet far too common (3.6 reported cases in the U.S. each year). Please support me in taking this issue out of the dark, as well as helping those who have suffered. Even if you think that you have nothing to give, as little as a dollar can make a difference (it adds up!), and more importantly your spreading awareness about a worthy cause. Please keep reblogging, and getting the word out.
