paul robertson, the popular pixel animator recently featured on popular kids show & tumblr favorite gravity falls, clearly has a huge woman problem and likes to draw cutesy racist pics of women being raped and murdered. If you have the stomach for a depiction of the murder mutilation and rape of racist caricatures of native women, google his name + “custers revenge” and try and convince yourself that this dude should be getting any kind of work, not to mention working on children’s media.
Some things to consider:
That Aboriginal women are likely to be victims of violence is not news: Aboriginal women aged 25 to 44 are five times more likely to suffer a violent death than other women in Canada. Amnesty International (Stolen Sisters, 2004 and No More Stolen Sisters, 2009) and the Native Women’s Association of Canada (Voices of our Sisters In Spirit, 2009 andWhat Their Stories Tell Us, 2010) have documented more than 500 cases of Aboriginal women who have gone missing or been murdered since the 1960s. Half of the cases have never been solved.
- Nearly half of all Native American women— 46 percent— have experienced rape, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner.
- One in three Indian women will, at some point in her life, experience the violence and trauma of rape.
- On some reservations Native American women are murdered at a rate more than 10 times the national average.
