Anonymous asked: hey i'm probably really behind here, but can I ask why you don't like Humon? i'm not a huge fan either, but I feel like you've said why, but I missed it.
Thanks for asking! I love having reasons to vent and rage like there’s no tomorrow, hahaha.
The short answer is you can find all my previous posts in this tag.
The long answer is very long. But I will try to make it as short as I can without leaving out the essentials:
It was the best of times. It was the worst of times…
It all began when Humon saw that Hetalia had become a thing, and was annoyed with the fact that the Japanese view on the world was “incorrect”, so she made her own series based on how Europeans view the world, and by “Europeans” I mean one lonely Danish fetishist creep, who took the Hetalia Wave of Popularity and surfed on it to her heart’s content. She gained both the Hetalians and the Anti-Hetalians, the latter of whom for some reason couldn’t tell apart the characters despite Mr. Himaruya’s excellent artistic skills (something Humon can’t exactly brag about). To each their own; not everyone likes manga and anime, and truth be told the early Hetalia anime wasn’t, uh, all that good. But it had a certain je ne sais quoi.
But the more time I spent looking at Humon’s stuff, the more hate I found directed towards Hetalia, and I grew frustrated, sad, and angry. I didn’t want to see it anymore. Every time I saw Humon and her shitty-ass rip-off I would flinch, I would get annoyed, because it’s not “SUPER DUPER GREAT OMG YOU’D LOVE IT”. So I turned my back against it, all for personal reasons.
It peaked when Humon made a comic related to porn sites (or something, I can’t even remember the comic) which LINKED TO MY YOUTUBE VIDEO IN WHICH RASKE MENN SING “THE PORN SONG”. That is my video. I made that video when I was nineteen or something. I was fairly proud of it at the time, despite all the translation mistakes I later realised I had made.
If you click that link you can see the first comment there. ”I came here because of SATW.” Now, imagine this video being linked to by Humon and EVERY SECOND FUCKING COMMENT IS “HUMON BROUGHT ME HERE”, “THANK YOU HUMON”, “THUMBS UP IF SATW SENT YOU HERE” (the latter posted by the same girl three times because she didn’t notice that voting had already been disabled in my video).
So I took the video down because I’m a moron and forgot you could disable comments. A few months later, some dickhead from Serbia had uploaded my video to his channel, and would block everyone who wrote on his video about it being stolen. Who links to this Serbian guy’s video? Humon does! Not only did she make me want to take down my own video, but she also links to a stolen piece, woop-dee-fucking-doo!
As you can see I have re-uploaded it, with far fewer comments and fewer views.
So that is my personal vendetta agiainst Humon. My hatred rose. I withdrew from the Hetalia fandom because I couldn’t go anywhere without coming across someone who did a Hetalia/SatW crossover or writing fics based on things Humon had written about Nordic people, commonly mistaken for “facts”.
Give and take a few years. I had retreated from the Hetalia fandom because of this. I felt alone and miserable for a long, long time.
I return to the Hetalia fandom thanks to my friend Andrea, who reblogs really good Hetalia stuff and writes amazing fics, and did not like Humon’s stuff and thus would not reblog any of it. I was safe with Andrea. I love Andrea.
Slowly, as I re-entered the Hetalia fandom, I realised that Humon’s popularity had increased, but so had her infamy. So had her idiocy. I found an article on Encyclopedia Dramatica on her, and though you should take those articles with a grain of salt, I read every paragraph and I felt less alone for every paragraph I read. I read about all the dumb shit she had written and said, all the insensitive things she had drawn, and just all in all gave me enough ground to stand on in case people should ask me why I dislike her so.
And then this precious gem pops up. Unlike ED, which takes the absolute piss out of everyone and everything that has created drama of some sort, Bad Webcomics takes, well, webcomics and critiques them fairly, and explains why it’s a bad webcomic.
In Humon’s case?
Here, let me explain to you: Several of her “comic” strips has homosexuality or even rape as a punchline. Rape in a comic series is awful in general — rape in general is awful, but smart people like you and me know this — but using “UR GAY” as a punchline ceased to be funny when you turned twelve years old. Her series about Niels the mafia thingy could have had some quality if she hadn’t just doodled around and made same-faces and done nothing but draw awkward situations and NIELS RAPING HIS DAUGHTER BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKED NIELS TOO MUCH. *pulls own hair in frustration*
And that’s just the art. Here, let me explain to you another thing…
She claims to be open to homosexuals, transexuals, transgenders, and people of colour, not to mention she claims to be doing good for the sake of women — I’ll get to that later.
Fetishising homosexuals, transexuals, transgenders, and people who aren’t white, is not the same as being open-minded.
Just look at how she writes in her description on the occasional picture. ”I know beauty is usually long straight hair and fair skin, but I can’t help it, I love black people! They’re so beautiful and adorable! And also, by the way, so far three black men have made a move on me in real life, DO BLACK PEOPLE HAVE A FAT GIRL FETISH?”
It’s one thing to ship a gay ship. It’s another thing entirely to ship it because it’s gay. That is fetishising. Do you watch South Park? Have you seen the episode in which there is a new girl at school? A black girl? And Cartman goes apeshit because he so totally wants her to become the girlfriend of the other black kid in school? And he totally sets them up, because ethnic minority couples are “sooooo cuuuute”? In the end the black girl and the black boy end up together and Cartman ends up squeeing like a rabid fangirl. That is racism and fetishising, and somehow this looks like what Humon does.
Now, let’s begin on the women things…
I’m all for feminism. I’m all for equality being okay and proud of your femininity, because this is feminism. Feminism is not, you know, having one party dominate the other party. To Humon, feminism seems to mean that “Guys rape girls all the time in real life, I want to change this; I’ll draw a whole bunch of artworks in which women dominate and rape and humiliate men, because that’s equality!”
Let’s have a look at one of her drawings, shall we:
Original: Oh, lol, look at this man, he’s being humiliated, he probably deserves it, lololol GURL POWA.
Genderswap: Oh god, wait, this doesn’t look very… uhm…
Drawing men being humiliated and raped is not what is missing in this world. The Spice Girls would cry themselves to sleep.
She’s as stubborn as an ass and cannot admit defeat. She removes people who try to correct her, and does a fucking ragequit if she realises she can’t win, ending an argument with “lol you’re so easy to troll”.
She’s older than me. I am almost twenty-five years old, and though I do have my immature and childish sides I know when to admit defeat and stand corrected. I have sympathy with Snapesnogger who suffered critique some years ago, because she was a teenager, and I know more than anyone that your teenage years might not end until you’re, like, twenty-two years old. I even have sympathy with PewDiePie who literally said “HAHAHA I’M GONNA RAPE YOU” frequently in his videos because at least he has finally realised that it’s not appropriate, especially not when you’re a huge thing on the Internet with many many followers.
With popularity comes great responsibility and if you can’t handle all that responsibilty then kindly retire and do something you know how to do.
If you want a comic series that is sexy, racy, and amazing and funny and totally homo-ok, and not sexist, racist, or homophobic, then Oglaf is where you should turn. Humon is unfunny, offensive, poorly drawn, and literally the worst piece of shit to appear on the Internet, and I’ve found many various sites with unrealistic and impossible pornographic art.
OH AND HERE IS THE PART THAT FRUSTRATES ME THE MOST:
HER FANS DEFEND HER. HER MORE RABID FANS ARE ALL LIKE “YO STOP BEING SO OFFENDED BY THIS STUFF, IT’S JUST JOKES, COME ON, MAN, TAKE A CHILL PILL” WHEN SOMEONE IS ALL LIKE “Dude, rape is NOT funny” and “Dude, that’s fucking racist, man”.
AND SHE ALSO DEFENDS HERSELF. FUCK HER. SHE POSTS HER WEIRD-ASS FETISHES ON FUCKING DEVIANTART, A SITE ON WHICH EVERYONE CAN ACCESS JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING.
deviantART is a trigger-free website, and by that I don’t mean there aren’t any triggers, but absolutely no trigger warnings whatsoever. You can mark one of your pieces as “gory” or “violent” or whatever, and the website will censor the image to kids younger than eighteen years, and also those who have enabled “safe browse” or whatever. That has no say if you don’t tag yo shit. On Tumblr you can make up to thirty different tags in the tag field, and people can blacklist them, and, indeed, you can put your nasty-ass inappropriate shit behind a Read More so it’s not all in your face. dA? Not so much.
I also heard the line, “She doesn’t know any better, she’s European!” and I just fucking…
Thanks for having faith in us, stranger. We sure don’t know anything about equality, now, do we? It’s not like gays can legally marry one another in Norway — and I don’t mean “commit partnership” but actually “marry” — and even fucking adopt kids, and not bat an eyelid if someone isn’t white (unless you’re a total douchebag), and uhh, I don’t know, the PRIME MINISTER HOLDING A NEW YEAR’S SPEECH IN WHICH SHE ENCOURAGED WORK PLACES TO HIRE PEOPLE WITH GAPS IN THEIR CURRICULUM VITAE, BECAUSE THEY MIGHT HAVE SUFFERED OR MIGHT STILL SUFFER FROM DEPRESSION AND THEY NEED HELP TO GET BACK ON TRACK, MAYBE? DOES THIS MEAN “NOT KNOWING ANY BETTER” BECAUSE I’D LOVE TO SEE WHAT WE’RE DOING WRONG.
So this is a long post, probably longer than any of my other posts put together. But I put actual thought into this one, digging in my memory for both personal issues and objective issues.
Fuck Humon. Her art is mediocre, her jokes severely lack quality, and her personality is absolute shite, and if I can cripple her dominant hand for the rest of her miserable life, I would be a happy clam.
I fucking hate this bitch so damn much after I got so fed up with her shit artwork and comics. I can’t believe I used to like her back then until I found out how awful she is!

Followed by crying, theories, fanart/fanfics…
There is now a measles outbreak in New York. A whole ward of cancer patients currently undergoing chemotherapy have been exposed to it. Imagine fighting cancer for years only to die because some jackass didn’t vaccinate their brat and you caught measles.
Fucking vaccinate your damn kids.
