Is everyone clear on what’s going on in Russia with LGBTQ peoples. CAUSE YOU SHOULD BE. What’s going on is absolutely horrifically disgusting and it turns my stomach. Russia is home to people just like you and me except their government is telling them how they can and cannot live and who they can and cannot LOVE. This is heartbreaking. Ask yourself how you can help our Russian brothers and sisters. Lets not be quiet about this. We can all help.
Ways you can help:
REBLOG THIS POST.
VISIT allout.org This website will inform you of the chaos in Russia and other areas of the world where being gay is a crime. Help allout.org by donations and/or signing they’re demands to governments across the world for EQUALITY and PEACE.
BOYCOTT STOLI VODKA!!
LETS DO THIS BY THE MILLIONS.
It is just appalling to see how Russian youth are being brainwashed into a doctrine of hatred! Our gay Tumblr community must know what is happening to our brothers and sisters in Russia. Russia wants to be seen as a progressive country by hosting the Olympics, but with human rights being violated this way, Russia only appears barbaric to the free world and any right thinking person. PLEASE, AT LEAST RE-BLOG THIS.
To do so, though, they need to raise some money to keep their huge van fed. These are some truly inspiring, talented, and wonderful people - please consider lending them some money through their indiegogo campaign, and get great merch in exchange.

I just went and read their new policy and there is nothing of the sort on there.
IT DOES SAY THIS:
Content License to You:
As a Subscriber of the Services, Tumblr grants you a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, and non-transferable license to download, store, view, display, perform, redistribute, and create derivative works of Content solely in connection with your use of, and in accordance with the functionality and restrictions of, the Services (including, without limitation, Paid Services, as defined below). This means, for example, that we license Content to you so that you can Reblog Content and add commentary to it.
Which essentially says that you can have your crap and they won’t own your crap
Subscriber Content License to Tumblr:
"Something else worth noting: Countless Tumblr blogs have gone on to spawn books, films, albums, brands, and more. We’re thrilled to offer our support as a platform for our creators, and we’d never claim to be entitled to royalties or reimbursement for the success of what you’ve created. It’s your work, and we’re proud to be a part (however small) of what you accomplish."
Please ACTUALLY READ it before reblogging and making assumptions
There is a part of tumblr terms and conditions that gives them a license to your work. This permits reblogging, comments, etc. It also permits them to distribute your work at their discretion. You can find this under “reblogging” in the terms.
Please read it
How on earth does OP think Tumblr works? How reblogging works? It’s basically reposting something with an easy link back to the original source and with a way to track feedback. (That being said, no, don;t repost, reblog.) How do you think the login background works, or how Tumblr radar works?
You can’t do that without giving Tumblr some sort of license to allow your work to be shown by other people, unless you want to explicitly have to give permission for every single reblog and comment you get.
A website the size of Tumblr, sneakily copyrighting content posted on it, wouldn’t last very long. They’re not that stupid.
Reblogging for the last three comments.
UK-based artist Susanna Bauer has exceptional needlework skills and, we’re guessing, a very gentle touch, that enable her to use dried leaves as a canvas for some of her miniature art pieces.
"Most of my pieces are small sculptural objects often based on found natural materials. I like giving time to the inconspicuous things that surround us and often go unnoticed, paying attention to small details and the tactile quality of objects. Appropriating traditional craft techniques like weaving and crochet as a means of sculpture brings a contemplative element to the development of my work. I am interested in unusual combinations of materials, the experimentation with fragility and strength and the individual stories that evolve and shape themselves in the process of making."
The next time you find a dried leaf, pick it up and examine just how fragile they are and you’ll be all the more amazed by Susanna Bauer’s beautiful artwork. Visit her website to check out more of her work.
