The Lord Does Move In Mysterious WaysDISCUSSING HOW THE WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH MAY HAVE DONE LIBERALISM A FAVOUR AND GAINED THE COMMUNITY THOUSANDS OF SUPPORTERS. PLEASE GIVE THIS FIVE MINUTES OF YOUR TIME IF YOU CAN
Homophobia is the third big whammy against discrimination, with racism and sexism being the first and the second. None of them have been totally eradicated (and probably won't ever be) but the signs of improvement over the years are now quite visible. There are far less ethnic supremacists than there ever used to be, there are plenty of women who are more successful than men these days, and in an increasing amount of places in the world gay people are finally getting equal rights. Homosexuality has always been under scrutiny from the church, more than any other body of people, but even that has begun to turn - slowly but surely. Many churches are realising that gay marriage isn't a massive imposition on their particular religion, and that legalising it doesn't even necessarily require them to perform mari

(The results of the poll were in favor of the extension.)
Recently I've just looked at how busy I am with everything, and I figured.. Even if the end date doesn't matter to me, those participating probably won't have too much time. I understand May isn't for a month and a half or so, but I don't think I could do an entry for a contest by then. ^^' So, more time for everyone! ^^
I will be notifying all participants, entry complete or not, of this change.
The first prize is 1200 + Artwork!
As the title states, this is a SasoKin contest. That means it is for my OC X Canon pairing, Kinomi X Sasori. Below you can find all the information you will need to participate, though feel free to ask me any questions not answered in the journal. (:

My Coming Out ExperienceI've been thinking for a while and I want to share my story with the world about my coming to terms with being gay. I would like people to understand the things that I have been through with my sexuality so they can have a better understanding of me. It's been a long time trying to understand the feelings I've had and soak in everything that would come with it; no matter what if it was unconditional love to immaturity and bullying and such. So yeah here is the story.My Coming Out Experience2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would have to say that I've started having these feelings since I was in 8th grade. I didn't know how to handle them. I pretty much just kept in all in my head for a long time. I wanted to tell people, but I was afraid. In middle school, kids are immature. They bully you and use words as weapons. I've been a victim of bullying in middle school enough already. So from then until towards the end of ninth grade, I'v

I have autism, so I guess that makes me a "loser". Correct?
Well, I'd like to let him and all the other haters know just what this "loser" has accomplished...
*This "loser" has been in a quiz bowl.
*This "loser" placed 5th out of 24 places in a championship spelling bee locally.
*This "loser" almost skipped eighth grade.
* This "loser" won first place in a poetry contest this year.
*This "loser" had art in an art show locally this year.
I'm Halie Everhart, and I'm proud to be a "loser". Real proud.
and so it begins...just a small update regarding the "SPIKE" novel:and so it begins...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just got a reply from my editor. And boy, that reply really cheered me up!
There was nothing to correct, she said, and she was impressed by my novel.
I also got some feedback and constructive criticism, one of the things she suggested was making the main characters a bit older. And I couldn't agree more. I've come to realize, a while ago, that 13 year olds don't behave like Spike and Sam do. If they were, say, 15 years old, that would've been more...realistic, for them to behave like they do.
Also, I've been drawing them more mature than they are in the novel all the way, so... I wouldn't mind changing their age a bit.
My editor also gave me some great tips and advices on what to do in order to get it published, like perhaps getting a literary agent, and ask some publishers in Norway to help me with signing contracts (if that happens), and just help me in the process of getting my novel published abroad.
Because, yes, I

Gay Pride (Rainbow - Gay, Gay Men, Lesbians, and sometimes the entire Queer community. The rainbow represents acceptance of all sexual orientations.)
Labrys Lesbian Pride (Purple with Labrys in inverted black triangle [different versions exist] - Lesbians, women, and feminism, and gynephilic people who identify as female. Labrys became a symbol of lesbians and feminists due to the popularity of a female empowerment publication called Labrys Magazine. In addition, the black triangle is a symbol of lesbians due to the fact that many lesbians were forced to wear it in concentration camps during the Holocaust under the idea that they were "asocial" and did not conform to heteronormativity).
Bisexual Pride (Pink, Purple, and Blue - Bisexual
