Choices Several years ago, I made a choice.
It might not have been the best choice, but I find that in my life (despite my physiological, chronological youth) this response has been the best for me out of so many options. But there isn't always a perfect choice, and so I had to pick what worked the most.
Now, I don't really like people. That might sound harsh, but it's just not that much of a concern for me. Animals let you know where they stand, and in all honesty, animals like me an inordinate amount already. Humans, on the other hand, make absolutely no logical sense to me. Psychologically I can understand certain motivations and the like, but I can't reconcile the irrationality of others. I decided that I let people affect me too much. My family being the prime example.
It wasn't very hard for me to stop "caring".
That sounds bad, let me start over.
It wasn't very hard fo
Mental Disorders and StereotypesThere is something I want to discuss: mental/psychiatric disorders and stereotypes. They are more harmful than people realize, and they are the reason why mental illnesses and disorders are so hard for people to talk and be open about.
A good example is how society views people who are psychotic. Psychotic is often used in place of psychopathic, but Psychosis and Psychopathy are not the same thing.
Serial killers are more likely to be psychopaths or sociopaths than have a mental illness. Psychosis is were the sufferer has disordered thoughts, hallucinations, and/or a disconnect from reality. Psychopathy and Sociopathy are antisocial personality disorders, and not considered mental disorders by the APA. However, this does not mean everyone who is a psychopath or sociopath is a murderer and wants to kill people.
I have psychosis, but I am not a threat to anyone. I'm not even a threat to myself. However, the school I was in when I was first diagnosed treated me as a ticking time bomb and
I'm not a Christian, BUT... I respect your faith if you are and I will respect you if you respect my beliefs and show me the same respect you want to be shown. The same message applies to all faiths.
Just because we don't believe in the same thing doesn't mean we can't be friends ^w^.
What a GOOD Christian baker acts likehttp://www.gaystarnews.com/article/meet-the-florida-christian-baker-who-has-absolutely-no-problem-selling-you-a-gay-wedding-cake/
Even though he doesn't like gay marriage, he's more than happy to make the people getting them cakes and other things for their weddings because he believes they deserve just as much respect and that it's not up to him to judge.
THIS is what a good Christian baker acts like, not how SweetCakes acted.
I think I'm DemiromanticI think I'm a demiromantic pansexual.
this is an article about Asexuals and Aromantics https://thethinkingasexual.wordpress.com/tag/demiromantic/
The section that describes me-
"Demiromantics can experience romantic attraction but only after they’ve developed an emotional attachment to someone. Basically, demiromantics only ever fall in love with people they’re already pretty good friends with. They’re not going to feel romantic attraction to a total stranger they aren’t close to, not even after 10 dates. The actual amount of time it takes a demiromantic person to feel romantic attraction to a friend varies by person and situation, just like sexual attraction does for demisexuals. Demiromantics may still only experience romantic feelings sporadically or rarely."
Have MercyReally, stop. Just stop and have mercy.
Now, no raffles. (Which are GIFTS)
No point prizes in contests.
Then no point adoptables, auctions.
Then no even gifts.
And then one won't be able to even make money out of dA because they'll want to take it all.
Really, dA, stop. Just stop.
If you want to destroy your site, have mercy and do it fast.
Turn the servers off at once, don't spread poison.
Don't destroy our best memories.
I used to love dA. A lot. And you're ruining the experience.
But you won't care anyway.
You care only about your income.
Not about those who give it to you.
WTF is wrong with you, dA. Just WTF.
dA, you truly are Rotten to the
Well... Shit! Well, I guess that answers that. I was completely unaware that giving prizes away was against deviantART policy? Anyone care to explain...why or how, specifically? And why it's only relevant now? The backup got removed too, which wasn't really much, all in all, but still.
This isn't the issue. This is going around to others too. The more you know. :iconthemoreyouknowplz: ...The longer you live.
[EDIT]: An update of this entry by adding more screencaps about this. Big thanks to presaged and Meeshi for this.
DeviantART removed the raffle contest entry. You can't ever offer any form of the raffle, not matter which price you put in. They will always find a reason to remove it, if not worse, suspend you /or/ banishing your account for doing this. I'm really sick of the admins here. I'll be looking for a new art website This is seriously getting ou
deviantART isn't 'broke'I did a little research of deviantART community and I found pretty much interesting sources about their economy community and money refunding. So read this carefully, because we shall start from its history of the dA when it's been launched back in 2000. Here We go.
