"JUST BECAUSE IT'S COMMON DOESN'T MEAN IT'S NATURAL!!! THOSE GAY ANIMALS ARE GOING TO HELL AND ITS ALL SATANS FAULT HE IS CONTROLLING THEM"
Sorry, but these comments just make me wonder; 'Are there people like this still even alive?'
So you think that homosexuality goes against your precious book? Well did you know that throughout it's over 1200 pages, there are only a grand total of 7 quotes about homosexuality, the most popular being from 'Leviticus'.
People put all their faith in a few meager quotes from some book, because they are too short sighted to see the hypocrisy and damage they are doing?
"If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination". If you use this quote anywhere you should be ashamed of yourself. Have you even read this chapter? This Leviticus guy (If this is even a person) is a nut, as I shall prove here;

Hours to End Anti-Gay Therapy"Dear Lena,Hours to End Anti-Gay Therapy9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Quack doctors and religious extremists all over the country are using fake "therapy" to teach gay people to hate themselves. With a nearly 100% failure rate and no science to back them up, these sessions are much closer to fanatical exorcisms than any kind of clinical therapy.
A powerful bill that can finally ban this dangerous pseudo-science just passed the California Assembly and is on its way to Governor Jerry Brown's desk. If he signs it, the law will block extremists from brainwashing thousands of kids and shaming them into rejecting who they are and who they love.
A petition is circulating right now to push Governor Brown to support anti-gay "therapy" we only have hours to drown out the opposition. Will you take one minute to tell Governor Brown to protect kids by banning dangerous anti-gay "therapy"? And then ask your friends and family to do the same.
This groundbreaking bill says that any medical provider who tries to to change the sexual orientat

DeviantArt Premium ContentYesterday, my DeviantArt feed had an announcement about a new beta for their "Premium Content Platform". The short version is they're now providing a way for artists to sell digital downloads, directly from DA. On the face of it, this might seem like a good thing, but I'm not convinced yet.DeviantArt Premium Content11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Below are some of the major points of the service and some of my initial thoughts. This is a beta, though, so things will likely flux and evolve with member feedback. But here's some high-level stuff.
The first thing that jumped out at me was that buyers would not pay cash (via PayPal or whatever) for downloads, but a new form of currency, DA Points. Right away I'm leery of anything requiring "virtual currency". Facebook and Zynga haven't done that concept any favors. And the points currency Xbox Live uses is still baffling to me.

The deviant meet in Paris...I was in yeaaaaaaah , there was almost 400 attendee, but we finally were around 150/200 deviants, plus the DA HQ staff. I met many drawers, some photographer too, and the way some ppl drew, and this i saw them in real was really impressive. That was A fuckin good afternoon , and that was also great to finally find ppl with whit who I've able to talk about things i really love, because that's passion we have in common. There's even some person i hope to see again in the future, but i alas don't leave near Paris, and the train ruined me , but a deviant meet is a thing you can only do... ehhhh once every 3/4 years? Anyway, i really enjoyed that afternoon. I hope in some years i will have enough money to go to a big meet in the US, and meet many other deviants ^^.The deviant meet in Paris...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
*REDROB10~Robert-Alan takes modern images and makes them pop. His compelling mixed media assemblages, born from playing with different textures and shapes, results in works simple yet dynamic. The wide range of palates he uses -- from the often-solemn muted colors of his paper collage work to the bright, splashes of neon in his mixed media pop art -- showcases his mastery of color to elicit the exact emotion he's hoping for within the minds of his audience.*REDROB101 year ago in Art Features More Like This

Beta Testing: New Thumbnails ReviewEarlier today, #devBUG released the new deviantART thumbnails to Beta Testers. Here's my review of it, with things I loved, things I didn't like and ways it could be improved.Beta Testing: New Thumbnails Review1 year ago in Editorials More Like This
What I loved
The new thumbs themselves. They look great!
What I like most with the new thumbs, is what they've done with the larger deviations. It's safe to say that I won't miss those skinny, hard-to-click thumbnails (which are usually in the Tutorials gallery or deviantART Suggestions).
Left-alignment. Unlike most of the community, I actually like the left-alignment. I guess it's just a preference. It just looks better to me.
Literature Thumbs. These are probably my most favourite thing about the new thumbnails. They look more professional and I'm digging the lighter look! Now I know almost nothing about literature, but I'm sure the literature community wi

ASAP is NeverWhen the New Year festivities died down and all of the Creative Team was back in town, we had a small outing to discuss our goals for 2012. Among them was a simple proposition: avoid "ASAP." I'm not unique in my disdain for the term, recognizing that it is one of the worst but most commonly used abbreviation-turned-words in the history of English.ASAP is Never1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Let's consider the root of "ASAP" and why it's not only nonsense, but it's not at all helpful. ASAP literally means "as soon as possible." This understanding implies urgency, and to its recipient it causes the adrenaline to start pumping. "As soon as possible?!" you think, "that must mean it's super important and I'd better do it right now!" The true problem dwells in the person from whom the word originates. To different people, ASAP means different things. To me it might mean "please do the project in the next hour," but to you it might mean "the next couple days" or even "I need it by Tuesday of next week." ASAP's meaning has been w

Winter isn't helping much. Snow is one thing, but the bone-chilling cold makes everything seem more depressing.

Improvement Ideas for DAJust some ideas that I think would be helpful to most deviants...Improvement Ideas for DA1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. Changing you user name -
This is pretty basic and most deviants want it probably for like 50 or something like that
2. Statements -
Similar to Facebook Status but it is an idea of a widget I have come up with, instead of posting a WHOLE journal entry for like a sentence, you can write a statement... could be a quote, whats on your mind, whatever!
3. Llama Badges actually doing something -
I don't understand the point of them and why people would trade for llama abdges, it makes no sense to me but whatever...I just would like to see some rewards for them

To get a good idea of what kind of problems this could cause, watch this.
It's truly horrific.
I know it's only 'the internet' we're talking about, so it's not all that bad, but the internet is our portal for freedom of speech, opinions, social interaction, entertainment and millions of other things we take for granted all the time.
And after watching that video, you'll understand the negative affect this bill will probably have on the rest of the World as well.
It's honestly not looking good.
The worst part is that the people who wrote the bill, and the people who are voting on and passing it, are not technically minded, nor do they understand a

After twelve years of going without it, my grandmother will finally start chemotherapy on Monday. She's raised me since I was a baby and my mum isn't in the picture, so she essentially is my mother. I'm really having a hard time accepting some of the less pleasant possibilities that come with this. Her mortality is something I've always mentally known but never been able to emotionally accept, and seeing her so weak all the time is doing bad things to me.
About three years ago, our neighbor and friend was being treated for leukemia and died from a lung infection he got after a bone marrow transplant that wiped out his immune system, and that's been on my mind a lot as well.
Hopefully it will go well. She has a brother with waldenstroms (it's genetic) who's had these same treatments twice and responded well to them, so I'm trying to focus on that and remain hopeful, but I'm still very scared. I don't know what I'd do if something happened to he
