This is Mel
I’ve known her since 2008. She was introduced to me through Zeurel, which is hilarious to me because Zeurel and his wife claim that I’m the one who helped THEM meet. The world is funny that way.
I began dating Mel in September 2009, though the initial attraction had been there for months before. She visited me, I visited her, off and on for 2 years. THEN THE GREAT dROUGHT BEGAN.
After my visit to see her in Ottawa in 2011 I didn’t see her in person for TWO YEARS. It was awful. I was living with my grandparents in Maryland stuck in a dead end Taco Bell job, it was fulfilling and I was miserable. I saved up ALL my money and went to visit her again and I stayed. Now I’m married and we live in Vancouver. I left everything behind to be with her, and at no point do I regret this decision because she makes me SO happy.
She’s an artist and a very talented animator working for DHX Media. She’s caring, she’s insightful, and she’s VERY passionate about outing people or organizations that are fucking people over or lying to people where animation is concerned.
She’s my better half and while the road was long, rough, and winding, I wouldn’t change a thing. I love her with all my heart.

Legally, I have to answer “My Wife”
YOU’RE DAMN FUCKING STRAIGHT
I’m creating my own post of this to spread awareness. If the victim’s text confessions from their coming forward somehow don’t carry enough weight to grasp your eyes and ears attention, I -dare- you to say that to their actual spoken words. I may not personally know every single one of these victims firsthand, but you best believe that I’m willing to stand alongside each and every one of them and help bring this toxic asshole who’s been festering for years now to the swift justice he deserves. And as for everyone who’s doing their best to fling themselves under the bus to try and protect him? You will be given the same receipt.
I care. And you should too.

With the MOAMT kickstarter coming to an end, the team is asking for feedback on how to improve their product.
Please dont send hate their way or even give them feedback. Guaranteed, it will fly over Kate’s head, regardless of how many people come forward or valid it is. (Unless its asspats. They enjoy that).
I feel as though my own experience review post of when i was on the team was validated when a few other past employees whom actually work in the industry, came forward to me with their own negative experiences with working for Kate and Zof.
Neither of them to my knowledge have apologized or even owned up to the buttfuck of mistakes they have made. And i doubt they ever will.
I wish the two of them luck as they continue trying to pursue this project or if they even try and break into the industry.
The animation world is a small one and everyone knows someone.
I am going to be back in the States from the 9th to the 15th, visiting family. I’ll not have my computer and my phone is not a good thing to browse tumblr on, so I will not be answering any asks during that time. However, I’ll try to answer what I can when I get back.
Love yer faces
