Perceptions of HomosexualityGay and Lesbian rights is a an issue that galvanizes people, particularly on the internet, and as I writer of male/male fiction or a Yaoi fangirl, as you may prefer, I would like to weigh in with my views on the matter.Perceptions of Homosexuality2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Naturally I do completely support Gay rights and all this entails. For example I believe that adoption and marriage are just as valid options for Gay and Lesbian couples and should be permitted and protected by law. I also feel that individuals of any marginal sexual orientation or gender identity should be free from prejudice, harassment, or unequal treatment at work or in public. So on and so forth.
I think that this is the most common stance for liberal-minded individuals and is probably the one expected of me, given my interests. My interests in male/male works however are not what guarantees or suggests my support for Gay rights.
I think most Yaoi fans do support gay rights but, although their tastes may influence this opinion, this is mainly because they are thems
STOP, THIEF!!(Edit: Over 160,000 people have read this Journal entry already, so don't miss it!)STOP, THIEF!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ha ha ha, best headline ever.
Good, you opened this journal. Don't worry, no art theft shenanigans have transpired that triggered this entry. I merely want to share my thoughts on "ripping off" and "originality" with you, both as an artist and novelist who's been on the Internet for 12 years.
This is not a rant - it's strictly comical, but also educational. I'm known for my laid-back, funny and matter-of-fact attitude
I'll give you a different point of view today, because if there is something I despise more than art theft, it's people accusing others of it. Anti art theft ninjas, also known as: people who have likely not had enough science in school. They often have no compelling evidence. They often have wrong evidence (even worse). They often do it on a whim, a feeling. And they rarely do it silently, rampaging publicly instead, thus driving a witch hunt.
First of all, let me tell you something th

Don't think twice, its naughty not nice.
Im not who i thought i was, for i am a shadow of what i once was.
I heard your cry, yet let it slide by.
I took from you what was never mine
That blood flowed off your arm like strawberry wine.
your cuts are deep but not as deep as my own
What once was is now totally blown.
So kill me now for i have sinned, I never deserved to be your friend.

PoetryPoetry arises from that spring where pleasure meets pain.Poetry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It is the art of expression which the poet cannot quite express to any one person, and does so to everyone in turn.
Poets do not seek happiness or satisfaction or love or paradise. Neither are they the harbingers of rue, married to melancholy thoughts of yesteryear; placeless, baseless slaves of catastrophe. They are seekers of the unsought; the ones who worship the shadow in between night and day.
I cannot explain the euphoria a poet experiences when before him appears a muse, and gently picks up his quill from its forgotten ink pot. I think it's like first love, but I'm not sure.
But the muse is more fastidious than a Goddess; her favor is varied and rare. Sometimes it cannot be counted upon.
Sometimes you must write because there is no one there to listen.
Sometimes you're only company through an unending night is that sheet of tattered white paper that's decorating your broken desk.

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,

I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

'When I was younger
I saw my daddy cry
And curse at the wind
He broke his own heart
And I watched
As he tried to reassemble it'
A young 5 year old Andy observed his father with curious eyes, as he turned his back after saying goodnight. He had been a wreck for a week ever since his mom had left. But Andy didn't know where she went, or when she'd come back. Or that she never would come back. "Daddy?" he asked in a small voice. His dad turned, his eyes red and puffy and voice hoarse. "Yes, Andy?"
"Whens Mommy gonna come back?" he asked innocently, confused as to where she had gone. His dad sighed sadly and shook his head.
"I don't know..." He said before closing the door, leaving Andy alone to his thoughts. Thoughts like: 'Where did mommy go? Why did she leave? And for how long? Who will make me my dinner every night and pack my lunches for school? Who will give me g

I've been thinking about this for quite some time and I felt it was a time.
I challenge each and every one of you to share your testimony on your individual pages. Whether this is in a deviation (in either the actual deviation or in the artist's comments) or a journal, whether it is over something small or large, share your testimony.
You are welcome to share your testimonies with the group as well
If you don't know where to start, I would suggest looking to the Book of Mormon. If you haven't read it already, or if you haven't read it recently, take the time to do so.

-- False Flag Hatred --"Although bananas may only look like a fruit, they represent a wide variety of environmental, economic, social, and political problems. The banana trade symbolizes economic imperialism, injustices in the global trade market, and the globalization of the agricultural economy. Bananas are also number four on the list of staple crops in the world and one of the biggest profit makers in supermarkets, making them critical for economic and global food security. As one of the first tropical fruits to be exported, bananas were a cheap way to bring "the tropics" to North America and Europe. Bananas have become such a common, inexpensive grocery item that we often forget where they come from and how they got here."-- False Flag Hatred --2 years ago in Personal More Like This
