I agree that breast cancer needs a cure, but so does every other type of cancer. The amount of attention breast cancer gets, compared to what other serious illnesses get, pisses me of. Because YES, we are well aware of it by now.
How can we NOT be aware of it by the amount of advertising and product placement that is made from it? Yeah, a portion of breast cancer “accessories” go to funding, but MOST of the profit goes in the pockets of company putting it out there.
I STILL want to see some heart disease awareness, because that is the number one killer for women, NOT breast cancer…but companies ignore heart disease, because it’s not a “sexy disease”.
Time to turn anon off now and go to bed.
Can’t you take a single joke, quote, or statement of sarcasm that someone posts, without pulling out subtext that doesn’t even exist to begin with, in order to turn it into some huge fucking deal about one of the following:
How it’s not PC of being Transgender.
How it’s not PC of the subject of rape.
How it’s not PC of body image.
How it’s not PC of women’s rights.
I swear, I’m all for that stuff too, but I’m getting so fucking sick of seeing people attack some poor person who meant to make a light hearted joke (example of them quoting a line-from-a-movie-that-was-spoken-by-a-5-year-old-in-Kindergarten Cop, “Boys have a penis, girls have a vagina.”), getting attacked, “called out” and yelled at in the mist of 8 paragraphs+, about what is politically correct, right, and fair…when I bet most of the time, the op knows it already themselves.
This is not a dick waving contest.
I laid in bed for 4 hours and couldn’t sleep at all…and I have to be up in two hours…then be at fucking therapy for 5 hours, and get harassed if I don’t participate or sound happy. Today is going to suck.
I could easily just call out, but I am a man of my word…
Without going into revealing details, there is a pretty large group that I am a co-creator of to a particular fandom/show on DA. In fact, it is DA’s largest group for the particular series.
Lately the founder and a few other mods/co-creators are getting annoyed with the amount of yaoi/slash the group has been receiving.
In our admin area, in a private discussion, some comments are being made that are really getting under my skin. I’m replacing any revealing information with asterisks.
“The fluff kind that looks more like their good friends, I’ll allow to stay, but the hardcore yaoi needs to go.”
”I get disgusted when I see hardcore yaoi “***”. For crying out loud,*** single and straight AND *** is married to his wife then let’s not forget he has his daughter, ***.
So just because it disgusts you, you want to ban it from the group? Also, that particular guy has never officially claimed his sexuality out loud. While it is likely he IS straight, it’s not right for you to say it like it’s law, especially with said guy has made SEVERAL slashy jokes between him and his friend (WHICH is why so much slash art exists of it).
“Now whenever “***” is even mentioned, I gag with the thought because of the horrific things people create between *** and ***.
Even worse then hormonely-stressed girls hooking up with ***.”
Now, In my opinion, the slash fans have been way more mature than the “hormonely-stressed girls” of the fandom. We KNOW that these two people are not actually a couple, and we don’t deny that one of the guys is married and has a kid. However, I’ve had several friends on Facebook who fall under the “hormonely-stressed girls”, and I would always see things like, “Even though *** doesn’t know I exist yet, we will get married some day!” or, “Good night ***, I am pretending I am sleeping next to you tonight.”
“I didn’t create it for yaoi. ”
Fine, that’s cool…but it is really disheartening when you allow straight pairings/oc’s but not gay ones. That really seems homophobic. Not to mention, it is also the biggest group on DA for this series.
I gave my thoughts in the thread as politely as I could manage, and I said that it wouldn’t be a smart move on the group’s part to outright deny yaoi/slash, because I have seen backlash that other groups get when they do this.
I suggested that, if the group does not want yaoi, then they should say that ANY gender pairing mature images are not allowed, even het ones.
I haven’t gotten a reply yet…and I’ll be honest and say that I WILL leave that group COMPLETELY if they put this “no yaoi slash” rule in place, because I WILL NOT be associated with something that is so blatantly homophobic.
And this is the part where I’m asking “what to do”, because the more I read these comments by my fellow mods, the more I feel really irritated and dismayed. I feel like I want to leave the group completely due to how they are talking right now…but I do have high participation in this group with its members at the same time.
Several people have often found my own DA page and befriended me in saying that they saw I was a co-creator of this certain group too.

It’s all a bunch of bullshit. They are always teen blogs that steal photography photos off Google, too. They don’t actually promote you, but rather these dumbass “first # to reblog gets promoted MUST BE FOLLOWING me and _____ ” is just a way to promote themselves and get more followers.
I’m hardcore and unfollow you if you pull this shit.
