I really should use it more often.
I really ought to stop looking at the user pages of people who fave my stuff. People are free to have their own opinions, I know, but it seriously makes me uncomfortable when my stuff gets faved by people who've plastered billions of "NO YAOI," "NO YURI," "NO GAY IN MY GALLERY," "MARRIAGE = 1 MAN + ONE WOMAN," "ABORTION IS EVIL," "LIBERALS HATE AMERICA," and "BELIEVE IN JESUS OR GO TO HELL" and "JESUS JESUS JESUS GOD GOD GOD LOOK AT HOW MUCH I LOVE JESUS JESUS JESUS"-type messages all over their pages.
Hi! I'm asexual, but I write/draw M/M and
F/F (and M/M/F, F/F/M, and whole groups of consenting adults) alongside my M/F. I believe in marriage for everyone
- if you're a legal adult and have the mental faculties required for legal consent and want to get married to another legal adult with the mental faculties required for legal consent, you should absolutely be able to! I don't consider same-sex artwork "dirty" or "inappropriate" unless it involves sex - same as with hetero artwork. I believe that abortion is a matter that should involve ONLY the woman, her SO (if he's still in the picture,) her doctor, and her deity(ies), and no one else
, with her personal choice being paramount. I think that if you have to stoop to attacking someone's political affiliation, then you've officially hit rock bottom and have lost any ground from which to argue any point. AND I believe that religion is a personal matter, and no one has any right to tell anyone else that they're "wrong" or are going to be "punished" by supernatural forces they may or may not believe in. Also, Jesus Christ? Would absolutely not approve of the whole "LOOK AT HOW MUCH I LOVE GOD LOOK AT HOW FAITHFUL I AM LOOK LOOK LOOK" thing; in fact, that kind of behavior was something he specifically warned his followers against engaging in
because that was the behavior of the Pharisees
... You know, the people who he called hypocrites, and who later arranged to have him crucified
because he was a threat to their political power...? Yeah.
Above all else, I believe in the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have done unto you." So I'm not going to go and bash on people who think or believe differently than I do, and I'm not going to go around cramming my personal beliefs down everyone's throat at every opportunity.
state them once
, here, in this journal, and I may occasionally do artwork that reflects my personal beliefs, but I will at least be respectful about it, and people who view my page aren't going to have my beliefs ramrodded down their throat, I promise
