Back to Square One (Minor Edit)EDIT: I added a few more little things, including a link for people who were asking questionsMore Like This
I’m sorry that the last journal seemed to upset so many people. It was meant as a cleansing of views and people around me that might introduce toxicity in my life. But I can totally understand how some people took it very personally, or felt that I worded it poorly. You are absolutely right, and for that transgression I am sorry.
With that in mind, I felt it might be a good idea to just give a refresher course on important personal rules, opinions, or views I have so that we’re ALL on the same playing field on where/what/who I stand for. So this is going to be a very BLUNT and DRY list of stuff about me and my opinions. I hope that it helps clear any confusions and I will be happy to elaborate on anything if you ask me in the comments section.
I am an atheist. While I am very tolerant of other religions providing they leave me alone, living in America has ma
LGBT in Kids Cartoons?I had an interesting twitter discussion this morning. Last night I simply asked if there had been any specific character in all of Avatar: The Last Airbender which was anything but heterosexual. The closest I got was a joking “cabbage-sexual,” but this morning I also got some really negative responses too.More Like This
It's a kids show in America. You're not the target audience. Most kids don't give two hoots about that stuff.
I'm opposed to the idea of forcing ideals on children and demanding things change unnecessarily to suit peoples own agendas.
Neither of us, I assume, had cartoons or games with gays as kids. Neither of us are homophobic. So WHY do kids NOW need it?
God damn it, kids don't need to know, or give a shit, about fucking gay rights. Their parents can tell them if they care.
It's a retarded question. It's a god damn kids show.
That raised a lot of questions for me. Such as... why is it wrong to have LGBT representation in a kids cartoon? I’m not
Goodbye Comments SectionSo I finally bit the bullet and disabled comments on all my artwork. I had been thinking about doing it for a while now, and after conducting a poll and seeing an overwhelming support of doing it, I decided to finally act upon it. Deviations I submit will no longer have comments. Journals and my FrontPage will because I can’t disable those (trust me, I would’ve disabled my FrontPage comment section YEARS ago if I could. That place is a cesspool).More Like This
The reasons for disabling comments are pretty simple. I get a lot of hate on the internet and it’s negatively affecting me. I am, I admit, a special case. I likely get more hate than most “famous” DA users do, and as such I have to tailor my needs specifically. I also have been growing very wary about how toxic the DA community can be at times. DA doesn’t police new accounts and it’s very easy for trolls to perpetuate their activities. Blocking doesn’t really DO anything as anyone can just create
