In order for us to continue to pursue license rescues, behavior like this (see link above) needs to stop happening. These are two very popular licenses we’ve rescued because you, the fans, asked us to, and yet they’re still being scanlated. It makes consideration of other popular rescues (like Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, as an example) very difficult. Please read, please share, and anything you can do to help stop this behavior would be truly appreciated. Thank you!

In 31 states, rapists are allowed to sue victims they’ve impregnated for custody rights.
There’s a case in Boston, MA right now in which a rapist is taking advantage of this. He pleaded guilty of rape in 2011 and was sentenced to 16 years probation; however, this sentence includes 16 years of family court as well, which the victim must also attend. He’s using this to sue for joint custody of her child and will only withdraw his law suit if he is free from paying any form of child support. This entire sentence seems like much more of a punishment for the victim than it is for the rapist, and for the state to allow such a thing, the victim is suing.
As stated in the court complaint, “Even if the family court ruled in the [victim]’s favor on issues currently in dispute, such as whether the criminal defendant should be granted visitation rights to [her] child, [she] will suffer harm from the constant threat of new issues arising in family court until her child reaches adulthood, including, for example, efforts by the criminal defendant to seek to modify child support orders and enforce his parental rights at the trial court level and on appeal.”
If this woman is forced to attend 16 years of family court with her rapist, she is not only forced to confront a traumatic event that she should never have to deal with again, but she is subjected to the possibility of losing pieces of her child to him over and over again for all of those years. In addition to this constant state of fear and anguish she would face, just by being sent to something considered ‘family’ court—for her and her rapist—she’s being disrespected and her rape undermined by even the suggestion that this is a family situation. By doing this, the law is making felony into family.
In 31 states, rapists are actually given rights instead of having much of anything taken away. In being given these rights, they are being given the chance to further torment the woman and possibly abuse the child. It is not okay to reward rapists and further punish victims, and the ignorance of rape and how our justice system is handling it needs to turn around.
Please sign this petition to ban rapists from being able to sue for custody rights. This issue is so little known, yet so important, and I don’t know any better way of trying to make this change.

Hey guys! I unfortunately need a little bit of help.
Recently, I came out to my parents as trans*, telling them that I intended to start on T as soon as possible since I’ve been living out for more than a year now and the insurance my parents had me under would cover HRT. Unfortunately, when I told them, they didn’t react well at all and told me that if I wanted to go proceed with my transition, I would need to “feel the consequences myself.” So, long story short, they took me off of their health insurance.
This is where you come in - I hate to have to ask, but I need to raise a decent amount of money by early December so that I can pay for school-sponsored health insurance for the upcoming year. With health insurance through GWU, my hormones will be covered, thankfully, but it’s an expensive bit of downpayment for a full-time student with little to no outside income to make.
I will be offering rewards in the form of art commissions and buttons - check out the campaign for further info!
If you guys need any further clarification or have any questions, feel free to hit me up! If not, I would really appreciate any donations, or SIGNAL BOOSTING! As much exposure as I can get would be fantastic! Literally any amount of donating helps.
Thanks for reading :’))
Guys, Jay is one of my closest friends. I’ve known him since he was 14 (he’s now a sophomore in college) and he has never been anything but this incredibly talented, driven, casually overachieving individual in the 5+ years I’ve had the privilege to be his friend. I’ve been con mom for Jay and his friends since they started attending local cons and I love them all very much.
I know I don’t reblog stuff like this often, but that should draw attention to the fact that I’m really very serious about this. His parents have been trying their hardest to pretend that their son’s identity is not a real thing for a long time, even while his AUNT displayed a more parental attitude toward him than they were. I even wish I could lend Jay my own parents, who have met him and are accepting and happy to hear he figured out the way he’s most comfortable living, but unfortunately that’s just not how the world works. You can’t force tolerance on his parents, but you can help out the person their ignorance has victimized.
What angers me the most about this is that they are willing to risk Jay’s normal health (if he gets the flu, if he gets strep throat, an infection, a UTI, etc) in order to prevent him from getting his hands on hormones. Regardless of Jay’s trans* therapy, no one at his age should have to deal with the expense of routine care without health insurance.
If you have any small amount of money to spare for my friend, I’d be so incredibly grateful. If I can do a drawing for you to entice you to give him $5 or $10, I absolutely am willing to do that. Please contact me and let me know you’re interested in donating to Jay and would like me to draw something for you as a reward! I’m willing to take up to 7 slots at this date and time.
The link to donate to Jay is in the green bar above. Thank you guys SO much for taking the time to read this!
