Bubuloon? Some things might still be changed, but I would like to hear your opinions so far!


Bubuloon by Kawiku

I may get a bit of hate for this, I'm sorry if I offend anybody!

(This may be a trigger; I'll be talking about homosexuality and religion)

I saw a comment about something relating to this by someone I kinda know, and I just needed to vent. This has been on my mind for a LONG time.

I suppose this is the right time to do it, huh?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

First off, I want to say something that I'm sure not a lot of people know.

I'm a straight Christian with a wavering faith. This means that I still 'believe' in the religion to a certain extent, but I'm questioning a lot of things. (Sometimes I wonder if God really even IS real, if there IS a Heaven, ect). I don't go to church. (all of the local churches are the creepy nutjob ones *shudder*)

I suppose I'm one of the weird Christians. I can actually take a joke about the religion. Most of the stereotypes are true, it's hilarious! An incredibly accurate stereotypical family would have to be from one of my favorite shows; Moral Orel. Some people of our kind do indeed take 'God's Word' to that extent, and twist it so horribly that it's disgusting. That show is one of my favorite shows for a reason, it got me through a lot of tough times when I was younger.

No matter what my over-the-top 'Christian' grandmother said, I loved (and still do) watching any 'raunchy' show (called 'raunchy' by my mother), things like South Park, Family Guy, American Dad, basically anything that was/is on Adult Swim/Comedy Central and such. (I haven't had cable in about...what, 3-4 years, now? We had it for about 4 months for the first time in 6 years, then we lost it again. Dunno what's airing anymore.)

Uh, back to the main point. Like 99% of most Christians, I was raised to think that 'gay people are the devil' by various people. However, as I was growing up, I couldn't help but to question this--why would an all-loving God make people 'hate' homosexuals, but then turn around and say "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself"?

As I grew older, I decided to ignore any of the ''hate this or God will hate you'' things that Christians told me. Instead, I go by the words I just stated, "Thou shalt love thy neighbor". Even if I decide to no longer be in this religion due to jerks (The bad Christians are kinda making me want to turn away, it's basically like being in a fandom. It's embarrassing to be in the same '''fandom''' as them.), I'll still hold that same moral.

For ANY over-the-top Christians reading this, we are in no place to judge ANYBODY. You are in NO PLACE to call ANYBODY OUT on 'SINNING', EVEN IF IT'S AGAINST YOUR BELIEFS OR NOT. You know why?

TO QUOTE THE BIBLE ITSELF: "There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

TL;DR

:

I don't care who you are, where you come from, what your race, religion, sexual preferences are, or whatever else. I don't even care if you're married to a damn tree.

You're all the same in my eyes, you're all people. You all have feelings. I don't care if you're gay, lesbian, asexual, bisexual, trans, bigender, binary, pansexual, Atheist, Wiccan, homophobic, or WHATEVER ELSE YOU CAN THINK OF. If you're a girl who wants to be a dude? Cool! If you're a dude who wants to be a chick? Go for it!

(EDIT: Forgot to mention--just wanna point out that a LOT of people feel that they've been born as the wrong gender--I know that it's something horribly hard to go through, mentally and physically. These people are incredibly strong, but they need the proper support and love to be able to realize that they ARE strong. They have my full respect that they're brave enough to finally go through the outside change to show how they feel on the inside!)

I honestly don't care, I don't mind, I don't care. (As long as you're not threatening people for their beliefs, that's just wrong!)

Porn is fine, being different is fine, drugs are fine (Be careful with this one, a lot of them are bad for you! As long as they're as safe as drugs can get, I don't mind. I just don't want you to hurt yourself!)

As long as you respect me, I'll respect you. If you're happy, I'm happy! I ONLY want people to be happy. I'm in no place to judge you for what you do, or who you are. It's your personality that counts, and you're all amazing. Hell, even if I get out of this religion, I'll still think the same thing. You're all awesome!

Please don't feel scared to come out or anything, or change religions. It's all up to you, friends. Just do what makes you happy! You're all so strong, I'm so proud of you all.

'My' God is supposed to be a God of love, not of hate. He doesn't tell anybody to 'hate' anything and/or anybody. Don't believe any other Christians telling you otherwise.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sorry if I pissed anybody off, I just needed to get this off my chest!

((Didn't check for typos, if you spot one don't be afraid to tell me!))
We're taking suggestions for this new series! If your idea is picked, you'll be credited in the description of the video AND at the start of it!

ART FEATURE


Been needing these guys for lore/worldbuilding reasons for a long time x__x

Stone weavers are a species of weaver that are uniquely talented in fire arts.
Originating in volcanic regions, they are capable of walking on molten rock and withstanding the hottest environments.

They have since spread out to most parts of the world and found a niche in many cities and towns as blacksmiths.

Unlike their smaller counterparts (silk weavers), they do not posses silk glands or sticky pads.
Their feet have no nerves. The lower parts of their legs and the bottom of their feet are covered in thick, wiry fur that lets them "feel" when moved.

Differences from silk weavers:
-Ears are never folded!
-They are mostly predatory, and have teeth.
-Clawed feet (Always)
-Taller and thinner than silk weavers
-Secondary limbs are full length, and can reach the ground. (Like the noble body type)
-ALL stone weavers can use fire arts, and many are also talented in other magics.
-They are not as fragile, and their horns can be used as weapons
