Women Need IronWomen Need Iron3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Women need iron. Not the vitamin. The barbell.
We are trained by the world around us to have fucked up ideas about our bodies; iron unfucks them.
We are supposed to be as thin as possible, as small as possible, perhaps until we disappear; iron teaches us to take up space.
We are taught that the only good direction for the scale to go is down, and to agonize ritualistically when it goes up. Iron teaches us the power of gaining weight for strength and gives us another weight to care about – the weight we are lifting.
We are taught to eat small amounts daintily and treat food as sin and pleasure. Iron teaches us to eat heartily, to see food as fuel for life, and to seek out nutritious food rather than avoiding sinful food.
We are taught to think of our bodies as decorative, an object to be looked at; iron teaches us to think of our bodies as functional, our own active selves, not passive objects for another’s regard.
Whole industries exist to profit by removing from us

Sees obvious rip off... Oh my godWell my attention has been on a certain user on this site that is definitely in the Creepypasta group. Now I could go into the many reasons her character is emo edgy desu, but I'm gonna not do that and go into this instead.Sees obvious rip off... Oh my god4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Your ripping of a fairly popular character, telling the creator they ripped off of you when their character is like 2 or 3 years old, and your requesting and commissioning a lot of shit, then going on to act like your characters hot shit and the next big thing.
Requesting and commissioning isn't fan art. Requesting is people drawing you your emo self insert character out of the kindness of their hearts. Commissioning is you give people your points, and they give you they're art. That's not fan art, boo boo, that's people being nice. So please lower your ego a bit.
And you also were harassing one of my friends. And not just online friend that I'm already overprotective of. It was an irl friend, and I'm doing all I can to not go at you. But as of now I'm gonna not. Bu

Okay I'll make this short. Muse lied to me, about everything. I wanted to help her improve but I'm hearing more stories, and Beatrice and Muse HAD THREATEN AND GUILT TRIP JINX AFTER HER JOURNAL WAS MADE. If you wish me to show I'll update the journal and post it, it's huge.
I can't take it anymore, I'm done. I blocked Muse and Beatrice on DA and Skype. I just have one thing to say to you people, what are you planning to do next?
go ahead, threaten me, spam me, report me. Do whatever because you guys want, you people are not gonna do anything to change my mind.
You seriously want to improve Muse? Then ACTUALLY FUCKING DO IT. And forget about buying me that Loki figure, I don't need it. I'll feel guilty if you waste your money on it.
Voices against Discrimination #1 - LGBTdis·crim·i·na·tion: the practice of unfairly treating a person or group of people differently from other people or groups of peopleVoices against Discrimination #1 - LGBT1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I believe a good question would be why do we discriminate?
A simple answer is because we're taught to fear what strays out of social norms, reject the difference, and try to be as normal as possible in order to be accepted in society.
That's a lame answer isn't it? Sadly, most of it is very, very true.
However, here's one thing that we should realize, times changed, we're a new rising generation, unlike our fathers and mothers, and difference is everywhere.
Voices against Discrimination is a blog series aiming to shed light on different part of our society, a window into things and people we usually fear, in hopes that we can make a difference. We chose the first issue to be about the LGBT foundation because it's a big part of our society, and as most of you know, August was pride
Cirque de la Vie Character Design Contest RESULTSCirque de la Vie, the famed "Éternelle" circus. It's longevity and abstractness has only added to it's popularity and fame over the years. Most visitors of this traveling circus don't know how long the circus has been touring, others believe it was started the day they stepped foot there. Whenever the case might be, Cirque de la Vie is a magical circus run by a mysterious ringmaster and his daughter- or is it his daughter? What many of the patrons and some of the staff don't know is that the ringmaster has put his own magic into the circus- at night, the dolls which are staples at all of the tents, come to life at night. It is those dolls that help the circus run, until someone else with their own magical flair steps under the big tent.Cirque de la Vie Character Design Contest RESULTS1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This

JollyJack, Sam Pepper, and Emma WatsonJollyJack made this cute comicJollyJack, Sam Pepper, and Emma Watson1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sadly what confuses me are people writing up “Shots Fired!” comments under the artwork. That makes no sense to me. Is it because he draws “sexy” things and people just assume that I’m against “sexy” things cuz I make feminist-slanting comics from time to time? If that’s their beef, then they’re idiots and lack simple comprehension skills necessary to form accurate conclusions based on things I’ve said. Especially since I’ve said that not only do I like sexy artwork and characters, but that I like JJ’s work and have no issues with it what-so-ever. Anyway... ENJOY THE CUTE CARTOON!
So there’s this YouTuber named Sam Pepper who does viral prank videos. Recently he did a series of videos where he pinched the butts of various people, both men and women. In the videos it appears unprovoked and very invasive of random st

fair warning on dramah! XDi noticed a few people complaining about the drama in recent strips...fair warning on dramah! XD1 year ago in Personal More Like This
so i figured i would spare us all some hassle down the road...drama is coming!
drama is a result of actions and behaviors and you know this well. if i skimmed over it i would devaluate the character growths, and i would make a very funny but meaningless story.
yes, comedy will be back soon after, it will be present in the dramatic pages as well...but drama will happen.
so my advice, take a few months off. leave this comic for a while. i mean this honestly without a shade of cynicism or sarcasm.
sunstone is in a way like a book and at best you keep getting a few pages of a book at a time.
so to fully see the importance of the small things , details, and behaviors, you might want to let this stockpile for a while
drama too will pass and i can promise you this, there is a massive payoff to it all at the end of chapter 5
just felt like i should come upfront with this so that there is no misunderstandin
