"Stop bullying ! No one deserves to feel worthless ."

I was bullied when I was younger , and I know that Spirit Day is more about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender bullying .. but at the end of the day , bullying is bullying , and any type of bullying is not okay . My friend is gay , so really i'm going to dedicate this picture to him , because I hate seeing the verbal abuse gays get for being gay . That's why I felt like I had to make a photo on Spirit day . I'm not too happy with this picture because I didn't use natural lighting :/ but by the time I went on dA and found out that today was Spirit day , the sun was long gone , so I had to do it without it . Sorry if the picture isn't top-notch ! I used a purple pen because everything about spirit day is purple haha .

There are many people in this world that are bullied everyday for being different. No one should be beat up, told that they are horrible, or any other form of abuse. I personally am not part of this community, but I do support it. I have many friends that are in the LGBT community that have had different experiences in their lives, some good and some bad. So as stated above, "Be the voice for those who couldn't speak" and show others how you can support anti-bullying for the LGBT community. For all those who have lost the battle, you will always be in our hearts.

I know, I should have added "as long as they're not hurting anyone", I just forgot that in the moment and now I'd like to keep it the way it is. I'm pretty sure you get what I'm trying to say :)

Look, I always say "everyone should have the right to be themselves as long as it doesn't hurt anybody else", I wrote the quote at the picture as it was because I assumed that everybody would get the connection to the Spirit Day cause.

You guys can go on dragging up people like Hitler or such. Saying that by stating this I should support pedophiles or violent people. If that makes your day better, sure, think whatever you want to think, whatever that makes you happy. But all in all, you're only trying to be witty and make my day crappy to make yourselves feel better. Like bullies.

Still most people understand exactly what I mean and want to achieve with this and what I stand up for. Either way, I wish you all a good day :)


I almost feel a bit ashamed for not knowing that it was spirit day until I saw it on DA D:

I've been very fortunate, all my friends and my family just think that it's the most natural thing that I'm gay. Most friends would laugh just at the thought of me being with a man, it's just... not right :XD:

Sometimes I wish that I could share my accepting family and friends with the less fortunate :( It's still hard for me to understand how anyone could just hate someone for loving someone of a certain gender or for being unfortunate enough to be born in the wrong body. GAH, I wish that I could just hug everyone that needs it and bring them to my safe home! :saddummy:

EDIT: Okay guys, I have a couple of things I want to say about this.

First off, when I drew and wrote this, I just did what I felt for the moment. That's what I do a lot of times and don't really think about all the possible ways that people can interpret what I've drawn or written.

I want to apologize if I have offended someone, that was most certainly NOT my intention! My intention was to show my support for this cause and share a bit of my thoughts. I do still stand for what I've told though.

At last I want to thank everyone for sharing their opinions and thoughts. Matters like these often stirs up a lot of feelings. Even if I may not agree with everything that has been commented, I still appreciate all opinions and it's great to see this diversity of thoughts.

EDIT2: I'm sorry but I have to disable comments at this point. Some of them were getting really out of control. I apologize for the ones with really well written comments that ended up being removed :/ Still, thanks for your support :)

Spirit Day is an international event to raise awareness of bullying and help prevent it in all forms. The day was started in 2010 as a response to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth who took their lives due to bullying. To get involved, paint your avatar purple, show support for your fellow deviants, spread the word, and submit your artwork to the gallery below to honor Spirit Day!

Spread spirit day and help to stop all the bullying in the world. Everyone is human and should be all treated human, whether straight, gay, bi, lesbian, or trans. No one should be bullied for who they are.

This isn't exactly the greatest drawing but I wanted to do something to support this day. I just wanted to to do something to let people know it's okay to be different. If anyone of you are in need of someone for anything like bullying or problems, you can talk to me and I'd be happy to listen and help as much as I can. Even if it isn't a problem, if you just want to talk to someone, I'm here. :heart:


EDIT: okay guys, I drew this because I support the victims who are bullied. I had to disable the comments because it was going out of control with saying that "you're not supposed to support this" and "bullying wont stop just because you posted this". I know it wont stop bullying, i just want to give out a helping hand to those who need it. People who are telling me that this is wrong should just leave then. I don't need people telling me my opinion is wrong. I support what I want to support. I get that you can say saying opinions are good and all but this has just gone out of control. Let people do what they want with their lives and be who they are, not people who you want them to be.

To those who are giving me well written comments, thank you and I'm sorry i had to disable them

One of my favorite quotes from my favorite movie of all time - Moulin Rouge.

Truer words have never been spoken. If only everyone could learn and live by these words. The world would be a better place if everyone learned love and tolerance of said love.
