Dear Mitt Romney,I'm so very sorry you oppose adoption of children by gay couples. I'm sorry you think that 'It's not right on paper. It's not right in fact.'Dear Mitt Romney,1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well, let me give you a couple of facts, Mr. Romney:
In the United States alone, approximately two million children are raised by LGBT parents, and as of 2009, over 20,000 same-sex couples are raising 30,000 adopted children.
Multiple studies in the medical, social, and psychological welfare communities have proven that children raised by LGBT parents are just as likely to be well adjusted as those raised by heterosexual parents. Meaning any worries that a poor little girl won't be able to tell one of her fathers about her menstruation, or that a boy won't be able to confide or bond with one of his mothers normally are pointless. Children confide in parents they trust, and when raised by LGBT parents, they will have the same trust with them as they would with heterosexual parents.
And if I am correct, Mr. Romney, you are against abortion. You pro
Quit getting mad at Rule 34Ok, so I`ve seen a lot of people getting mad at certain porn artists and writing comments like "Fuk u i didnt wanted 2 see this u ruined this show for me" even though the artists did put the Mature Content filter (and usually even censor it). WHY. THE FUCK. DO YOU CLICK IT THEN? It`s not the artist`s fault you saw it. It`s your own fault. Warnings are there for a reason you know. Why do you still click it since you don`t want to see it? God, I swear some people have no brain.Quit getting mad at Rule 341 year ago in Personal More Like This
I understand that it`s annoying to some people when they see Rule 34 stuff in their messages all the time, but can`t you just ignore them? No one is forcing you to look if you don`t like.
Even if you see it by accident, you shouldn`t get mad and insult the artist just because you don`t like what they draw. I mean, I do enjoy r34 when it comes to certain things, but there are also other things that I just can`t stand. Like once I`ve seen a MordeTwi r34. It was awful. Do you think I enjoy seeing a bird fucking a pon

I want to tell you a story...About an attempt by Google to compete with a social sharing website. With it, users could share videos, status messages, conversations, etc. It was called "Google Buzz" It was launched February 9th and discontinued December 15th, 2011. Less than two years later and almost no one knows that it ever existed. If they did they'd probably me even more pissed about this Google+ shit than they are already.I want to tell you a story...1 month ago in Personal More Like This
It's biggest criticism was it's lack of consideration for user privacy, and that's pretty odd because Google Buzz didn't ask users for their real name to completely attempt to destroy anonymity. Google Buzz publicly disclosed a list of names of contacts that the user had most frequently emailed or chatted with. It obviously resulted in a wave of negative publicity. How does Google decide to fix this problem? "Let's not fix the privacy concerns. Let's just force our users into this."
A lot of people tend to be defending Google+. As far as I know, none of them are content creators. Maybe I ca

A thousand years ago Princess Celestia banished her sister, Princess Luna, to the moon for attempting to destroy Equestria. Consumed by darkness she waited and planned on the moon for a thousand years. In that time Celestia used the powers of the Elements of Harmony to construct a weapon to fight her when her sister would return. These Harmonizers, devices created to turn ordinary Equestrians into extra-ordinary heroes, were hidden away to be found by those who would carry the title of Star Rangers.

Unsurprisingly, that high quality of work leads to them either having their work ripped off or operating in fear of that happening. They, quite rightly, want to protect their art with a watermark, something which I'm not against at all.
What I am against, what I hate, is people using that god-awful DA watermark.
If you are a good artist: don't be a lazy git. Make your own watermark, use your own logo. You'll protect your work without doing it the disservice of having some automatically-generated arse-smear ruining it.
Terrance back story time!!!In case you ever wanted to know, here it is, if you don't understand some of the terms, go to Wikipedia and search for, The Space Trilogy by C.S. Lewis.Terrance back story time!!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Terra - Latin noun meaning earth.
2,000 years before the events of the pilot episode, there used to be one Oyarsa. As when Malancandra (Mars) fell to evil and destroyed parts of that world and how Thulcandra (earth) fell to the Fallen Oyarsa (Satan, this is taken from the Space Trilogy by C.S. Lewis) causing death and destruction on a much larger scale, when this evil scarred Equestria, the Oyarsa split in three: Princess Celestia, Princess Luna, and Princess Terra each one taken a flawed yet still powerful filly body. Celestia, the most powerful, gained the power to raise the sun and, on occasion, the moon and stars. Luna gained the power of to raise the moon and stars. Terra had control of the land, from the ground and the critters to the sky and the birds.
This is where I, Terrance, comes into the story. While Terra had the greatest

(This was a great episode, and I didn't even notice the appearance Bronies are gloating about, and I was actually looking for it. It was that insignificant.
How sad their lives must be that despite being completely obsessed with a show about love, friendship, respect, and pony princesses, they simply cannot internalize any of those values and are instead dead-set on trying to turn it into something ugly and hateful. The more I think about it, the more sorry I feel for them. The answer to their insecurity and despair is right in front of their faces and they can't take the hint.
Look at your life, look at your choices, hateful Bronies. Maybe there's still a chance to save yourselves.)
Is there really anything that needs to be said about her at this point? She's a troll. A hypocrite who claims moral superiority while irreverently dicking with people for over a ye

- Look like the original chara. Like a girl who looks Just like Amy Rose but in different colours, ex. Black. And then u call her (ex.) "Black Rose The Hedgehog"...
- When your Sonic Fc is with (a coupple with) the original Sonic character. Ex. With Shadow or Sonic etc... Well its ok if the fc is like friends with the Original chara. BUT PLEASE! NOT A COUPPLE!!!! U should have enough of imagination to make an own boy/girlfriend to your chara... >.>
- When u make your Sonic Fc be the original Sonic charas "Brother/Sister". Ex. Shadows bro, "Dark the hedgehog" Who looks just like Shadow but just little different. And how the hell can Shadow even have borthers/sisters?! He was made by...... Well... I dont remember it correctly... But something Eggmans Grand Father.... Something... I have no idea...

About Alicorn Twilight (and Recent comments)Well, here's the scoop-About Alicorn Twilight (and Recent comments)2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Get used to it, because she's here to stay. And not just in the show.
We're introducing the updated version of season three's Twilight Sparkle into the comics as well.
We're asked about 5th person at our tables: "what do you think?" "Why did they do that?" "Are you gonna.." etc.
Since we work hand in hand with Hasbro, we never had any intention of NOT updating Twilight for the books as well.
And quite frankly... we are all about it!
Neither Katie Cook nor myself understand the hatred going on for having Twilight become a princess. Katie has made an outstanding point- Twilight may be the only popular character to have EARNED her crown... she worked for it, suffered for it, and it was awarded. She didn't marry into it, wasn't born into it (Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine, etc etc). That gives little girls a character that WORKED FOR WHAT SHE EARNED. One helluva example I think. And for Katie, with a little girl and another on the way... that's a great t

I am also now the new 3 Dimensional Art Community Volunteer.
One of the duties of these positions is that I can feature artwork from these categories as Daily Deviations.
I browse through these categories daily in search of deviations to feature as Daily Deviations.
This feature is to help the artist and their work gain more exposure, and it's genre and/or medium gains more community awareness as well.
But I need your help.
Have you seen a work of art here on deviantART which you have found so impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large?

Sexual exploitation is no joke, we all understand that. Having volunteered at a rape crisis center, I’ve heard heartbreaking stories and seen lives devastated by rape and sexual assault.
I applaud ANYONE concerned about these issues and willing to help with time and money. BUT trying to take down a tumblr about dirty jokes and ponies doesn’t amount to fuck-all. And sending someone money for a tee-shirt “supporting” taking down a tumblr about dirty jokes and ponies means even less than fuck-all.
If you want to lend assistance to something that matters, visit the websites of these 4-star rated charity organizations dealing with matters of rape, sexual exploitation, and women’s justice. Make a donation, volunteer your time, do something that MATTERS. Don’t be a tumblr warrior, be an actual hero and make a big damn difference.

There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through.
Fellow deviant Brian Kesinger is a case in point.
His first “day-job” in 1996—he was hired straight out of his senior year of high school—was drawing Tarzan for Disney.
Brian stayed at Disney and he considers every day there a part of his ongoing education as an artist. He most recently worked on “Wreck It Ralph,” and has become active in the story department, where he dreams up fresh narratives and new characters with fellow Story Artists and Disney directors.
But more and more, he is being recognized for his own style and own creations
