I'm not entirely sure. My fetishes have never really hindered me in anyway. Initially, I thought I was weird for liking the stuff I do but then when I got online I realized that maybe I am not entirely crazy. I am never really told anyone irl that I am into to stuff. I always hid it away. So I guess I'm worried if someone find found what I am into and think I'm weird or make fun of me for it. Though I think I should just like what I like and not care what anyone else thinks. 

If I ditched them, I really don't think it would make my life any better because of how little they affected my life.

I actually wrestled with questions like this for a while, and as cliché as it is, people should be happy the way they are, because the term "normal" is different for everyone, despite social norms.

I work fast food, and people ask for "regular" size meals all the time. Most of the time, they mean medium, but some people mean large size, and some even mean small (despite that not being a meal size).

To me a fetish is more like the icing on the cake. This is the best way i can explain it

Can i get the cake? yes? good.

Does the cake have icing on it? no? at least i have the cake
yes? even better

As this poll suggest you are considering just drawing normal, boring people, I don't know how you would do it. You've never really drawn a thin woman before. Even ones who are supposed to be thin are at least chubby. By drawing regular pics you loose the main aspect of your art style.

You don't draw, do you?

But seriously, what's "boring" about drawing non-fat characters? Trust me, there's a lot that's appealing about drawing ANY body type, they're all fun as hell. Fat, skinny, muscular, tall, short, whatever. And I DEFINITELY dispute the idea that one particular body shape or size can be the 'main aspect' of a person's style. People come in all shapes and sizes, that's not an art-style.

I draw, not very good but I draw nonetheless. What I mean by boring is not unique. There are so many drawings thin woman, and while being more accepted by society's beauty standards, they're not unique. Not to insult charector design, but drawings of bigger people are different and fresh.

Trinity's main style aspect is large rumps, as it has always been. It is possible to draw a thin woman with a enormous booty, its less proportionaly correct. Now they still have the no (or next to no) nose thing, along with other traits, an ass with mass was always the main appeal for nearly everyone here.

One could question the word "Normal" in todays society because of all the things that everyone does and acts. So if you have a fetish would it be considered normal? Absolutely! Be proud of who you are and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

It sucks living this life. As a teen going through puberty having fetishes suck: hiding from parents, not being physically attracted to the girls you're emotionally to, getting boners when thinking about it in the wrong places, resisting urges, its all a mess. Sometimes I wish I had someone help/guide me through it so one day I can atleast get over it or accept it, but until one of those things happen if I had the choice I would take it.

I have to say what im attracted too isn't even on the list of things I'd like to change about myself. I think is a little silly to let what your attracted too dominate your being and determine what you are.  Everyone is attracted to something but you should not let that define who you are. Everything in moderation, because even the most exquisite things can turn rancid and dull if over indulged.

Having weird fetishes makes sex and relationships so fucking difficult. If it's bad enough, it becomes difficult to be attracted to more "normal" stuff and that's kind of unfair to partners who don't share those interests.

And that really really sucks because you should never base a relationship off of "does this person share my kinks," but if a person DOESN'T share your kinks it could ruin a potentially great relationship.

All in all fetishes that are way outside the norm really really suck to have. Sure it makes you "unique" and it's fine if you're okay with just sticking to stuff online to satisfy your fetish, but it also makes actual sex complicated and potentially really awkward.

A thousand times yes.

As much as I happen to like all the weird, kinky shit im into, far too often in my life I feel like it makes it virtually impossible for me to have a normal relationship with someone.  I feel alienated constantly when normal sex or attractive things are brought up in conversation with friends or whomever, and my inability to respond properly beyond "I dont really care" has led a lot of people to think of me in less than great ways already.

Being normal would be a godsend for me.

Fuck that noise. I've indulged in my fetishes enough to know that they make sex a hundred times more enjoyable for me. Plus, being attracted to "normal" things is probably meaning I'm attracted to some stupid impossible "idealized" woman that I can never have. My fetish enables me to find tons of enjoyment in people who are otherwise overlooked or even reviled.

Plus, it always makes me happy when my attraction to larger women gives them a dose of self confidence. Especially when they stop feeling ashamed or disgusted with how they look. It makes my fetish feel like it's more than just a fetish.

It really changes the game when you realize you're not alone.  As a young teenager, I thought I was a freak because of the fetishes I was developing.  All around me were normal teen guys that were into normal stuff, and here I was, developing odd kinks and preferences.

But as you grow up, you realize that 90% of people have some kind of fetish.  And those "normal" teenagers I was surrounded by everyday were probably lying through their teeth just to appear "normal".

Finding various communities of people online, sometimes even in real life, made me appreciate that we all have different tastes.  I enjoy my fetishes and embrace them.  So far, they haven't intruded into my everyday life, but until that day, I'll enjoy the fantasy.

my feteishes are really only kinks. By definiton a fetish is required to arouse and a kink is not required to arouse but is very effective at doing so. My kinks are chubby and feet, nothing really too severe.  I proably would be more embarised if vore, futa, gore, and fecees where my "fetishes"

Back then when I was a young person, I was really embarrassed by what I was into.  I couldn't really talk about it with others so I sorta mostly kept it to myself.

THEN I joined this community a few years ago along with another sort of community I won't get into, and that made me at least a little bit more comfortable about my fetish.  Then I talked to a few people about it and they accepted it, and right after that I actually stopped giving a fuck if people found it weird or disgusting or whatever.

Besides, the reactions to when people see what I'm into is actually pretty hilarious and I wouldn't trade that for the world.  Guess time will tell if it'll be more welcome later in life.

I really wish I could just be okay with it, but it's the secrecy of everything that's killing me. I had to make another account to make sure my more curious friends didn't somehow find out. I worry every time I drink or get emotional it'll just come out as a confession to the wrong person. It's better because my fetish is all in fantasy, and while I sometimes find people more attractive when chubby, my asexual self wants nothing to do with that aspect of a relationship.
But then again, I feel like once I get the courage to tell someone, it'll be okay. Not my family of course, but my friends are very supportive, and I don't think they'd look at me any differently. I just hate not liking a part of myself that I really can't change. Besides, some of the art (like yours) is really cute and not very sexual to me, and I really enjoy that.

A few years ago, I might have done, because when I mentioned it to my girlfriend at the time, she tried to commit suicide in front of me (and I honestly wish I was making that up). Now, though, I'm fairly happy with it. It's not something that causes any trouble...mostly, and I don't see why I should have to bend myself to someone else's will.
