I will make this brief, as it has been huge news as of late, and I have shared this on tumblr.

The situation with Cartoon Network and Skyler Page has opened a discussion of tolerance in the workplace. Only this time, the workplace is the animation industry. 

I start with this, that I personally do not tolerate sexual assault from anyone, male or female. I don't. Sexual assault has no place in any industry, and that includes the animation industry. What concerns me is the current state of Cartoon Network, and the safety for everyone to work there. Cartoon Network needs to revise their safety procedures and background checks, and show forth improvement of their environment. 

This is not just for Cartoon Network, but for all animation studios to do this, so that this situation does not happen again. Should it happen again, and I really hope it doesn't, there will be a swifter and stronger response to the activity that has occurred. 

As I continue to read and stay alert of this situation, I am aware of Skyler's mental illness situation, and his history of trying to receive help. I do hope he continues to get help, but I do not consider the assault as part of his mental illness. I don't. I believe that on top of the help he received and receives for his mental illness, he would need to receive help with this assault issue as well. Being fired from Cartoon Network has not fully solved the situation for all parties, and I do hope those parties recognize with that. 

That is all I have to say with that. If you decide to comment, please do it politely toward yourself and others. I would greatly appreciate it.

Contro out.

Animation addict since age 6, and will never stop lovin' animation! Been sketching different things on my tumblr (link below) and pushing my drawing skills. I also enjoy critiquing art, if you're ever interested for critiques note me. Just be warned that I am hard to please, and I look to see how the project can be better, not to stroke your ego.
