This is a thing I'd like to expose: an Anonymous on Tumblr has just sent me a message sayin' "Rape jokes aren't fucking funny", probably referring to my blog page saying "IAMNOTGOINGTOVISITMYBLOGDUETOTHISMINGLERSTARTINGATMELIKETHATWITHTHATRAPEFACE! ç_ç" (if some of you have noticed it).

The only thing I have there containing the word "rape", mainly referred to this "rape face" meme.
Black humor. Referred to a fictional character in question. Nothing harmful.
And then, seriously? Getting mad at the word "rapeface" in a not-so-serious context?
Sayin' this, because I think I know, being aware of how much paranoiac I am, who the person is, after the accuses I received in a Note here on DeviantART and rumors about me (not directly mentioned) somewhere. :/
A person who doesn't get jokes, apparently.

What do you think?

Also, this.

EDIT: I sent them my response and the link to the video above.

Their "responses".

(They never gave me the response to my question, but it's interesting to notice they're also aware of the "rape face" thing, only mentioned here. Probably they're also on DeviantART and watching my posts)
Gotta deactivate the Anon at this point: the person doesn't seem to know the matter of black humor and the f* joke in my latest Tumblr post about my Ozz the Mingler.
Also, my responses. XD

I don't really see "rape face" as a joke about rape..also context, this person doesn't seem to get it.

Tumblr and it's call-out culture is such cancer, hopefully you don't have to deal with more of this.

In fact I didn't even remember of making one! XD
Fortunately, after disabling the Anonymous asks and getting few more messages from "visible" people, they stopped sending me all these weird messages and accusations. :)

I've always heard of Tumblr being all that cursed due to these people, but I didn't honestly expect to getting all this attention for pratically nothing. Also, I'm told about a possible hatred toward me and few friends from few people in a Toontown Discord Channel for no apparent reasons, yet I haven't personally seen that to confirm at all, but I'm trying to be careful with all these people, just in case. And I'm also well aware of Toonblr (Toontown's Tumblr) being full of drama (one example is this art style complains made by some people who think they don't fit in Toontown fanart, which is pretty silly), so I'll let you imagine which kind of rude people are there insulting anyone they don't agree with. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I just try to think positive and mind my own business. And it works!!! :)

I'm not really comfortable with that sort of joke but I don't think people need to go out of their way to censor people who only have a few followers where it is obviously a joke. Sorry you had to deal with it, it is tumblr after all, tho.

Oh dear. People really need to get a better sense of humor, honestly. You weren't exactly poking fun at rape at all, since you were pretty much talking about an expression (which could even be funny to see drawn out). I swear, people are just looking for reasons to be offended and upset nowadays. This is not how our ancestors envisioned us.

True.
Last message (not an anonymous one this time) I received concerns about my use of the word "faggot" over my fictional character Ozz the Mingler, who's a straight guy. Joke purpose even here. I didn't insult someone real, by the way.
Also, they told me I could use that word if I'm a gay person (mentioning the example of non-black people that shouldn't be using back-referred vulgar terms - in this case it's quite racist and I understand). However, they don't know me to even indirectly judge my sexuality, which I don't mention for privacy.
I bet that anonymous told them about me and both are creating some kind of drama. Absurd. :\

Honestly, how I feel is that words are words and if someone is gonna be offended by a term to refer to someone, then that's their problem. I've been called so many things under the sun and those names they call you (whether they're insults or compliments) only mean something when you answer to it. I can understand they're not really "right" but that doesn't stop someone from calling people names about what/who they are, especially when they're mad. But to get mad at a joke is just stupid. I honestly don't understand it. They could also talk to you calmly about it saying "Hey, you mentioned this and I didn't really appreciate it" or something like that. And tbh, I would let them start drama. It's always funny to see them get all flustered when they don't know the full story to the other side, then get shot down with your own logic.

Yep and it's what is happening right now.
I suspect the 2 people (anon and non) are from the same fandom, which is called Toonblr (Toontown's Tumblr) already infamous for the amount of dramas as I am told. According to someone a guy there is spreading false rumors about me and few people close to me, probably in the TT Discord channel, due to... I have no idea what's the reason of much hatred towards me and these poor people involved.
Maybe for jokes in my posts, hence these 2 coming to me with their invalid statements? Perhaps.
Gonna see what's going to happen next! XD

Indeed.
In fact someone informed me that some people in a Toontown dedicated Discord Server are spreading hate towards me and few people close to me for, at least to me, unknown reasons, finding the most banal excuses to harass me on Tumblr with these messages. Last "complain", referred to a vulgar gay term used on my character Ozz, was done by one who, as someone told me, previously harassed a my friend and caused quite drama in the Toonblr. An hypocrite person.

Well, here's my statement: as long as you can make good jokes about dark themes such as rape, they'll be good jokes. Also, I don't get why that Anonymus thought It's bad to put rape face. It's like every other face- funny, sad, angry- the only difference is that face comes of darker themes. And that's all. 

So, you made good job with calm response and I hope such whining people won't come on your tumblr so often :)

Thank you for comprehending this.
Apparently that anon is spreading some stuff about me around, because I've got a non-anonymous person concerning about my use of the word "faggot", used on my fictional straight character Ozz (I posted a sketch related tonight) and that I can't use it unless I'm a gay person. WTH?!
Well, it's Tumblr, afterall. :\

Alright, gonna tell something. I, myself, am bi and I am able to make fun of gay people. Of course there are some who I don't talk to because of their opinion about homosexuals. But I can laugh on "being a faggot" jokes.
So whenever I see someone going on somebody else like " oh, you can't use it, 'cause you're not gay", then I want to say to them " dude, please, take a stick put of your ass, it will help you".

Also the most obvious thing: trying to tell somebody he shouldn't joke/say about something it's like be against freedom of speech. And they're usually the people who say you can say whatever you want. So really, A+ for being hypocritic for them *clap clap*.

It also depend on the context you use certain term. I only used that word once, nothing more. Didn't expect their concern.
I'm an asexual with a homo tendency for women, just to say about my sexual orientation - also, they can't judge me all of sudden, thinking I'm straight, because I don't reveal my sexuality in public.

Yeah, Social Justice Warriors, the worst kind of people: they're against "immoral" things, but they actually act like nazis and tell people what to do or not. *Claps as well*
That is why Tumblr is (in)famous for.

Of course it depends on the context. And I think that with the Social Justice Warriors is like with feminists: many of them have forgotten what was the main purpose on the beginning.

Yeah, I don't mean to offend anyone with my jokes. I have black humor, yes, but nobody, except one, seemed to care about.
I can't say who this person is - I have just an hypothesis, but can't prove that - but maybe it's a second one who hates it as well.
Boh...

I'll be okay. Apparently these people are angry Toons from Toonblr who, according to someone, are spreading fake rumors about me around (and few people close to me as well), especially in their dedicated server. No proofs to confirm that, however it's unreasonable from them. And I don't even know them!!! XD

:hug: I know you're still the same artistic creative and Cog-loving artist who draws stuff for fun and creativity, the one who can truly draw the cogs' classic style and great art style for all directions ^.^

I'm pretty aware of all that for sure, even though I still love some of the artwork and concepts and heck, I sometimes draw nicer drawings that gives some not-so-loved characters some love, hurt/comfort drawings are one of my likings to draw like drawing any kind-hearted character like Terri or Irene or Tessie or even Cam giving compassion and comfort to a Bloodsucker or Big Wig or Ambulance Chaser or even the CJ, warm and loving moments with hugs and kiss no matter if they're hard or mechanical ^.^

Thank thank you for the favs and comments :)
