I must admit ever since the beginning of 2015, things turned sour on this base making account. I do take responsibility for emphasizing a particular regulation on my base, the no yaoi and yuri rule. There's no excuse, I know, but part of my reasoning still stands that base-users nowadays just don't seem to take a minute of their time to read the rules anymore. Because of this, they tend to not fully know what's allowed and what's not allowed. It's like they assume that if they see one base with rules, it's all the same to all the others made by different base makers. They just think, "Oh as long as I credit and show them, everything else doesn't matter." No, if you/they take the time, there are certian things I allow and don't allow. I don't wish to call out someone who used my base in a matter I don't want to see so I figured emphasizing it would bring the point across. This angered some people and I do apologize if it seemed offensive to you/them.
As for the people who got blocked, they got blocked for valid reasons. And no, the block user isn't a weapon, it's a defense against harassers. I don't block people to be a badass, I frankly chose to not give them my attention the moment they start acting like trolls. Their comments clearly showed that they want to be destructive and say rather harmful words that almost anyone with low self-esteem would off themselves. So cease putting words in my mouth that aren't true. Let me ask something, which would hurt your feelings more, if I told the truth or if I lied?
If the comment (about said topic) is straight-up disrespectful by an indignant butthurt, I will not give it/you the time of day. I am not dignifying your audacious comments with my response.
I will only respond to a comment if it's ethical and MATURE, as in having the good graces to be respectful and constructive about the said situation rather than by acting your own shoe size. Seriously, people. What do you hope to gain by acting like assholes? If you want respect, know that it's a two-way street. Not a one way street.
A few things I'd to clear up before people start believing wrong about me. This one dickbag had the audacity to think she had me figured out when she was totally off. I will not state her name, but I will indirectly clear up her false statements.
This said anonymous deviant claimed that (probably referring to my Ecchi bases), that they were rape bases... >_O I'm gonna stop (you) right there and point out something to clear up that mess.
Whether this is true to others or not, but to me, art, even bases are like cloud-watching. Sometimes two or more different viewers will see and interpret it in different ways. I had one of my friends (not a dA member) take a look at my Ecchi bases. She never saw rape in any of them. They're either making love or fucking; Having intimacy or carnal desire.
I don't cross that line with my bases. Yes, a man and a woman are humping each other, but at least I don't make 3+-ways/gang-bangs/threesome or more-some. I most certainly, don't approve of rape, period. So perish the thought.
When you start thinking about that deplorable word when you look at my Ecchi bases, all I'll say about it is... you have a nasty mind. Go ahead and think nasty cause that reflects upon you. If you like my bases but not the Ecchi kind, then stop looking at the Ecchi bases, I have a lot of bases that are platonic. If you don't like my bases at all, then cut off your connection with me and go about your merry way.
As for the "no one is trying to 'recruit' me, or force me to like it," you truly don't know shit about me. For as long as I've been on dA I've had at least two or three admins trying to convince me otherwise about my way of thinking, believe it or not. I don't remember their names and even if I did, I'm not gonna name call them. But yes, this is very true that I had someone in the past try to recruit me/change my mind about Yaoi.
Oh, get this, this made me laugh because it contradicted all of her assumptions.
"I don't know personally, so I'm not going to assume anything about you."
Then why did you voice your assumptions out in the first place???
At least at the end of the day, I can rest my head down at night knowing that I'm not the one embodying the hatred and intolerance they accused me of.
I never said I hated not feared LGBTs. I just rather be me and wrong than to be them and wrong.
I still stand by what I said. I don't want to sit down and second guess myself because they/you said something to upset me about my values, beliefs and hobby. Here's my one policy about me: If you say something about my values, beliefs and base-making hobby that doesn't sit right with me, I will NOT give you another chance. So leave the hatchet buried.
