A Major Breakthrough!!! =DHere I was expecting this weekend's journal to be me complaining about how school was taking up a lot of my time and that I wouldn't be able to post as often. Well, I had a major surprise yesterday!A Major Breakthrough!!! =D1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Remember months ago when I said I couldn't get an advertiser for my website? Well yesterday I was finally approved, but I have more reasons than that to be so ecstatic right now. I was expecting the advertisements to generate a few dollars a day for just some addition income, but it turns out that the ads are generating a lot more than I expected. When I say a lot, I mean TEN TIMES what I expected!!!!!!
It's only been about 24 hours, so it's still a little early to estimate just how much this could total in the long run. However, according to the numbers I've been crunching over and over, not only does this new source of income blow out any I've been making so far from commissions or YouTube, but IT COULD NOW BE POSSIBLE TO THIS FULL TIME!!!!
I'm going to give the site a little bit more tim
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
A new start. =3For these past five years, I have been making a crap ton of art on this profile. Starting from fetish pictures, moving on towards video game comics/jokes, and so on. It was a good run, but lately I haven't been very pleased with the way my art has been turning out. Lately I have had this desire to make my own stuff, and to develop my own characters. I want to expand my artistic horizons as much as I can, and I feel that for that to happen, I will need a new start...A new start. =33 years ago in Personal More Like This
SO, I decided the best course of action, would be to start from the beginning all over again, and I now introduce to you, my new profile; :iconmichaeljlarson: Don't fret though, this doesn't mean I'm going to take this account down. I'll still leave it up for you guys to see, but I won't be making that many updates on it anymore. I still might make the occasional video game comic joke, and I'll still accept commissions for the most part, but what I'll be mainly focusing on is my own work and my own ideas. It's going to take
Embracing DeceptionMidday yesterday (Saturday) I went to the grocery store, alone, in drag. Alex needed eggs for cupcakes, and was too tied up with the baking to go herself. If this were night, or I was going downtown, I wouldn't have considered it. But since it was public and midday, I decided to go.Embracing Deception2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And something magic happened:
I've gone out in drag before, many times. It's (mostly) uncomfortable. People stare. Kids laugh. Mothers usher their children behind them. It used to get me down, but eventually I've built up a bit of a tolerance to it. It's just part of being trans in the Bible belt.
I've often heard the argument that crossdressers crossdress for the attention. They go by the old adage: "negative attention is better than no attention", and maybe there's something to that. But when I'm out, getting hollered at by teenagers, the only thing I want is for the attention to go away.
To become invisible.
This, I think, is the allure to passing.
It's a kind of mag
We have better mental health than vanillas!i've seen this floating round the mainstream media for a day or two: a new article in the journal of sexual medicine suggests that BDSM practitioners hare better mental health than vanillas.We have better mental health than vanillas!1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
dominants came out healthiest/happiest, switches in the middle, and subs at the bottom, but still above all the non-kinky samples.
here's the abstract:
It has been generally thought that the practice of bondage-discipline, dominance-submission, sadism-masochism (BDSM) is in some form associated with psychopathology. However, several more recent studies suggest a relative good psychological health of BDSM practitioners.
The aim of this study was to compare scores of BDSM practitioners and a control group on various fundamental psychological characteristics.
The results mostly suggest favorable psychological characteristics of BDSM practitioners compared with the control group; BDSM practitioners were less neurotic, more extraverted, more open to new experiences, more conscienti

Transgender: Helpful or Harmful?Transgenders: natural contributor to society's diversity and therefore resilience, or flu virus needing to be responded to and destroyed?Transgender: Helpful or Harmful?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
For all my science-o-philes out there, I highly recommend watching (or listening to) the lecture Edward O. Wilson gave on group selection and eusociality.
Go here http://longnow.org/seminars/02012/apr/20/social-conquest-earth/ to do that.
Eusocial species have only arisen two dozen times in the history of life on earth, and when they have, they have completely dominated the biological landscape. If you've wondered the "why are we here" and the "where are we going" questions, here's an excellent exploration on those topics.
Personally I love this talk because in the context of Eusociality: transgenderism can not only be natural, but in fact contribute to the resilience of the group through the advantages of biodiversity.
Crossdreamers also posted an excellent blog on transgender animals here http://www.crossdreamers.com/2009/12/t
