Some of you might already know this person (or not). But those who don't know of her, she had the indecency to comment rudely to me on my Mother and Daughter Base and my No Yaoi/Yuri policy. <s>She's the reason that got me started on my latest journal entry</s> I know I should let this go, but I can't just go about my way, ignore her threat and let her get away with it. If she hadn't gone out of her way to criticize me, it could've been different. I had to do it like that. Sorry for annoying you, but I can't ignore her just like this.
For one thing about my Mother and Daughter Base, the history to it is that the original picture I found of it was on photobucket as an open collab edit (At the time, I did not know that the original was a SakuHina yuri fanart. I wasn't mindful of the differences between screenshots and fanart with edits back then, now I stick with ones that I KNOW are screenshots). When I found the open collab edit version (of which this base was made from, not the original original), it was meant as a motherly collab. I thought it was a sweet mother and daughter moment so I made it with the intent of it being a mother and daughter base, NOT a yuri base! So there, does that answer your question? If you heard a different story and not from the main source (me), you got scammed.
If she's reading this, here's my message to her:
You tell me to get a life? Someone who's so full of themselves who thinks that just because they had a sucky life that they can just act like a troll and an asshole just because they want to/make yourself feel better with an amount of common sense doesn't have the right to tell someone to get a life. It just makes you look like a hypocritical imbecile. And unlike you, I do have a life. I'm not on the internet all the time and whenever I'm on the interenet, I'm not going out of my way to make some random person miserable just because you're miserable.
You started this shit, not me. I was just minding my own business and then you comment to me in such an uncouth manner, you just crossed a line. I believe in two sayings; to each their own, live and let live. To be honest, and I'm sure more than half of my watchers know by now that I'm a hetero that's not a pro-Yaoi/Yuri fan. I don't want my bases that I worked so hard to make look good for everyone's conviences to turn into something I don't want to see. Because:
1) I'm a Christian
2) Personally, homosexuality doesn't match up to my values and it goes against my beliefs
3) To me it's like a penis, I don't want to talk about/see it everywhere I go and I most definitely don't want it crammed down my throat when others try to convert me.
I don't like homosexuality and Yaoi/Yuri in general, they make me feel uncomfortable but that doesn't mean I can't look at them as a person. At least I try to be respectful to other's who are gay and/or fans of Yaoi/Yuri by NOT directly attacking them, but I remain true to my beliefs by keeping them in my rules so I don't have to see them. Can you acknowledge and respect that? And lately, people go out of their own way to have the audacity to verbally criticize me because I don't like Yaoi/Yuri. Them harrassing me about my dislikes isn't going to change my mind. I can like and dislike whatever I want much like you and everyone who comes by reading this. Would you honestly badger someone because they like PlayStation 3 games instead of XBox 1 games? Or even favorite colors? People need to have some decency to keep remarks to themselves.
Like I said, I'm sorry I don't appeal to your/everyone else's needs. And I'm sorry I'm not the kind of base maker who pleases EVERYONE, and who doesn't give a crap whether people turn my bases into Yaoi/Yuri or not, but I'm uncomfortable about it. And I'm certainly not going to make Yaoi and Yuri when I'm not comfortable about it at all. Where in dA's rulebook does it say that I have to comply with everyone's demands? WHERE!?! I make bases that suit mine/everyone's best interest, all except Yaoi/Yuri and a few other things. People are free to use my bases, but all I ask is that they respect my rules and don't make Yaoi/Yuri contents with them. If you still can't cope with that, then here's two things you can do; either look for Yaoi and Yuri somewhere else (cause I know I'm not the only base maker) or make your own bases. It's not that hard.
But aside all of this, I just want to give you some advise. You may take it or you may not, but I suggest that you consider this carefully. Yeah, I'm aware that to other Yaoi/Yuri fans I make unfair rules in their opinions, but at least some of them have the good graces to not rudely attack me and neither should you. These are my rules I set out when I took up base making and they have to be followed, or else there will be consequences that lead to grounds of getting banned. You may have a whatever-I-want-to-do attitude, but trust me, that will get you in even more trouble than what you're bargaining for. Don't be stupid while you're starting out. Comments like these you may think they make you look cool/funny now will make you look bad in the future, think before you post your comments.
