possible unpopular opinion

tbh still considering leaving deviantart in the near future, all deviant is are a bunch of pre-teens who lie about mental illnesses, sexualities, and genders cause they want to seem unique and cool.

I know being an artist typically wants you to stand out from the crowd but you don't know how many people I see who are obviously not 'gay' or 'trans' like I know real gay and trans people. These people that are like 'i'm so hella gay x333' and people who just change their gender constantly are just attention whores.

like people will think i'm homophobic or smth cause people on the internet always call people that for no reason but it's rare to see someone who isn't gay or some unique gender.

which makes me angry cause most of them aren't actually like that, and the people who ARE GAY AND TRANS get buried by these people who make the lgbt community look like garbage.

like i understand why anyone would want to be unique but now a days it's literally not unique to be gay or trans. literally it seems like it's not normal to see someone who is cis and straight i totally agree so much to the point that i don't even put trans on my about me because i fear being mixed in with all the attention seekers and idiots tbh like they have no idea how much burden they put on true trans people and how much it really hurts the true ones!!! my mom still thinks its a phase because of it!! most trans people on deviantart are idiots and i hope they just realize they're wrong and being a tad toxic ,, i had this friend for 2 months and they switched genders 5 times within knowing them like b y e-- 

mmmm i went on a mini rant im so sorry deertine--

Lmao it's fine, glad you agree??
Like I'm a very masculine person and all but I wouldn't call myself trans. Tbh it just seems like people treat genders and sexualities like a trophy or personality trait.

Being masculine and boyish, isn't being trans.
Being trans is something you like actually feel, like I like being looked at as male but I wouldn't go as far as to call myself trans cause ik that's not me.

What I think happens is these young teens think being looked at as the opposite gender is being cool idk.

I agree! i'm trans and i'm about to start my physical transition. when i see people trying to milk their sexualities or gender identies constantly as their main focus of art,, makes me a little unnerved?
like ?? i am a real person and not a c00l unique trait !!!

Tbh I have nothing wrong with lgbt people, only the ones on DeviantArt cause most are fakers
Excluding a few like you, and etc.

Like the only reason I haven't left this toxic community is cause it's my only income.

I would leave but theres really no where else to go I guess. Tumblr is just as bad, as is instagram. Twitter is just a really hard place to get any attention at all if you make art

I mean I've always been somewhat trying to be something I'm not
just
at school
because people are assholes
but trying to be gay or some weird made up gender? WTF!?



At my school almost nobody has the guts to say they're gay because that's a good a good way to get your ass kicked lmao

like i understand why you'd want to be unique, I suffer from extreme problems with feeling unique.

but like all these people trying to be gay or trans like 
just because you're masculine doesn't mean you're trans.
I'm masculine, look like a boy, act like a boy, but i'm not trans.
It's just not something you have to be to be cool.

Right? And I have a friend who can easily be mistaken for a boy because she has a deeper voice and more masculine appearance, but she doesn't go around saying "oh I'm trans"

in fact she has a boyfriend who she's very happy with

Idk if it's just me. but seeing like 90 percent of dA being 'lgbt' just makes me feel like a freak because i'm not trying to be something else.

tbh the only things keeping me on here, is my watchers, and the interest in commissions.
cause if i leave deviantart my income will be almost completely gone.
