Ahh bloody hell.

That guy who makes the sarcastic alien comics? He’s anti-abortion, march for life sort.

I’m not going to link the post cause it’s gross.

Just an FYI cause I know people like those comics and I see them posted here on the regular. You will have to decide for yourself if you want to separate the art from the artist.

For me, I can’t. And I certainly won’t be giving him money.

@KARiley40 wait? the cute ones with the aliens confused about human interactions/rituals? got a link?

@julia thanks, that's hella disappointing. *unfollows his stuff*

@wolfie He has "I follow Jesus" in his profiles, that seems like a red flag already...

@julia yeah I guess I didn't notice that before, definitely a red flag

@wolfie Especially when it's the very first thing in the profile... meh

LB: fuck, i really liked those comics but fuuuuuuuck that guy

@KARiley40 Fuck that guy. I can make my own alien comics anyway.

@NeoAJ @KARiley40 Ditto. Fuck that guy. Done with him. Thankfully I had barely started.

@KARiley40 Well that sucks. If I weren't already numb to this kind of disappointment after finding out about the guy who created Earthworm Jim I'd be really bummed.

@RobsteinOne Tell me about it. Ugh. Always worries me as a creator I might hold some crappy views. But ugh. This. Just. No. No excuse for being this hateful.

@KARiley40 I feel like being conscious of it & worrying about it makes a big difference.

@RobsteinOne agreed. I just don’t want to fall into the trap of, ‘but I’m progressive! I couldn’t have hurt people!’

One of those, if I worry about it, I’m less likely to do it. Maybe. Lol!

@KARiley40 Heh, I know that feeling too. Especially since I used to have more of a "everyone else is just too uptight" mindset. I still feel really horrible about that.

But I feel like if we're worried of falling into that trap we'll probably know when/if we have or at least be open to criticism from others. That's the big difference. Or at least it's what I keep telling myself when I start to get too anxious about it. :P

@RobsteinOne same!!! I just won’t know how I’ll handle it until it happens and until then, I will try to do the best I can and to never promote hate.

@KARiley40 this is absolutely unsurprising for a blue check with a wedding profile photo and i already had him blocked for that reason 😂

@scanlime I hadn't looked up his profile until this! I'm glad someone found it before I threw money his way.

@KARiley40
Welp, reminds me of another comic artist whose series I kinda liked. Then I found out he's basically a SWERF and a TERF. No, I can't separate art from artist in such cases either.

@KARiley40

"why do you keep seeking out art online, knowing that so many of the famous creators you support will turn out to be awful people?"
