Feminism vs Damsel FantasiesHey Guys!Feminism vs Damsel Fantasies2 months ago in Personal More Like This
made front page! How cool is that? Thanks to everyone for the well wishes ^^
But, of course, with popularity comes QUESTIONS! Is this sexist? How can I make BDSM art AND be Feminist? This spurred a really great note conversation I had with a fellow deviant-arter. With her permission, I'm reposting part of the convo below.
Q: I would consider myself a feminist as well. I do have a question, though. I understand that what happens between consenting adults is up to them and there is no shame in sexual exploration or what some would consider a "kinky" sexual lifestyle, but some of your art doesn't strike me as consensual. I see bound and sexualized characters who are not getting pleasure from their situation. Some even look desperate for freedom. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
A: Lets take sex and table it for a second. I want to talk a little about catharsis.

Does Bondage art Promote Rape?And if so, what to do about it?Does Bondage art Promote Rape?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I started really chewing on this while reading some responses to Blurred Lines which referenced an article that linked "viewing images of objectified women to greater acceptance of sexual harassment and rape."
And it worries me a little.
Because AS a BDSM individual I happen to participate in, consume, and create a lot of art and activities that FROM THE OUTSIDE looks like women being objectified. Any member of the BDSM community worth his or her salt would tell you otherwise, that consent is at the very heart of a healthy Dom Sub relationship. Just read some of Shiniez' "Sunstone" if you had any doubts.
But the truth is the

Victim or VillainI've just started to notice how often, how ingrained, self-blame is when a person is a victim of societal circumstance. I was reading over some statistical data when I came to the summary of the article, a paragraph, that really struck me:Victim or Villain2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"It is part of social and legal convention in the United States to discriminate against, ridicule, and abuse
transgender and gender non-conforming people within foundational institutions such as the family, schools,
the workplace and health care settings, every day. Instead of recognizing that the moral failure lies in society's
unwillingness to embrace different gender identities and expressions, society blames transgender and gender
non-conforming people for bringing the discrimination and violence on themselves." - The National Transgender Discrimination Survey
It made me stop and think: do I harbor feelings of self blame? Two strips of Material Girl came to mind: when Noah has the stormy premonition and says "I was so sure...

Congratulations! I'll go donate the points now.
To those who didn't win, hopefully I'll have another contest soon!
This took a lot more effort than I thought it would... it took a long time to get all of your names on a word document, and it took even LONGER to cut them all out and pull them out of a basket.
There have been a lot of contests going on right now... so I've decided to have my own!
The winner will receive 50 from me! This will be a raffle type thing, so I'll chose a random deviant from whoever enters.
How to enter:
To get your name in the hat one time, Favorite this journal. Yep, it's that simple! You gotta do this to enter the contest.
BUT.... if you want a better chance at winning, each of these things will get your name entered one more time:

Aonuma Trolling , Ubisoft Lying, Skyrim ComicsAonuma TrollingAonuma Trolling , Ubisoft Lying, Skyrim Comics3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I should’ve updated my last journal right away when I found out that Aonuma was just trolling with the whole “was that really Link or not?” comment... On one side I’ve been getting inundated with people pointing out how “wrong” I was in the journal (despite the journal clearly coming out BEFORE he clarified his statement), and on the other side maintaining the concept that maybe it wasn’t Link has kept some fans a little TOO hopeful for the idea of a female Link or even that maybe it was him and Zelda’s daughter.
Sorry guys, but that actually WAS Link. I’m pretty disappointed in that, honestly, but I gotta try to be positive and not let this one set back discourage me. On the bright side so many people were “trending” about how much they’d love to see a female Link, that I think Nintendo finally took notice and realized it’s not just a deviant fan fantasy.

there will be 5 winners announced on March 3, so there's plenty of time to comment. i will, of course, use a random number generator for the winning numbers, so I promise it will be fair
Comment the words "womp womp" and give a link to a character you'd like drawn.

On march 3, I will announce the winners and create the flats for them!
In Defense of Mary SueThis has been brewing in me for some time, the first time I heard of this was just recently, because I didn't care to learn of it before a friend cried to me because someone called her character that because of how she looked. In doing my research I've found out more and what most call a 'Mary Sue' is what we all want our characters, even ourselves to be: Flawless, Loved by All, Smart, Brave, Kind...in short Perfect.In Defense of Mary Sue6 months ago in Personal More Like This
We do not write them this way because it is not realistic...but we picture them that way in our heads. Anyone who says they don't is a liar. I have had my OC for years and she is my base OC, I do not have many, I modify her for the stories because to me she is perfect, but flawed as to appear real. But in my fantasies, the ones I do not write down because I don't want to be judged for a silly fantasy, she is stronger than Lord Voldemort, smarter than Hermoine, braver than Harry, more loyal than Ron, more cunning than Draco and could catch the heart of every boy at Ho
