Ramblings of an Artist

28 year old Male living the sweet life in Florida. Like a Carpathian. I'm an artist of many mediums, some of which you will see on here.My main focus is as a Digital Lighting Artist. Many times I'll just post a random sketch dump, fleeting thought or occasional NSFW image. I'm a fatass, a smartass, and nerd/geek. My loves include Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, RoboCop, Marvel Comics, DC Comics (Not too sure about the reboot but that's a separate post all together), Photography, the CosPlay of others, literature of a wide and varied sort. Oh hell, I just put you to sleep. Feel free to drop me a message or ask and find out about me. I don't bite unless asked and I'm pretty laid back. Other than that, enjoy the internet, don't forget to tip your service provider.

All in all, this is my personal blog. Enjoy.

To say that not all men or women are bad when talking about rape involving the attackers when they are women or men is ignorant.

To say not all whites are racist when presented with an incident where a white person committed a racist act is ignorant.

So when I say a specific state is the reason…

Because we see it differently. To put it in the perspective as racism as you have… What I heard from you is a story about how a gang of gay black men, say, raped and murdered a child and then your commentary was ”i hate gay people. ” or ”I hate black black people ”

Yes, that incident was horrible and I stated my disgust with the goings on but, to me, the comment would be out of line and grossly generalizing.

A race, sexual preference, geographical area, gender, etc isn’t bad as its whole.

I won’t be silent because I’m not a coward and I’m not about to stand for that. Regardless of all the mean, uncalled for shit you just said to me. I’m not about to say “fuck cis white males.” More like I am upset with this particular person who happens to be a cis white male.

. And now we’ve both had our say and as far as ink concerned it’s done and I’m done with it.

1. I never called you a coward.

2. You’re missing the point of what I was saying. You’ve been missing the point of what I’ve been saying for the past few days because you’ve been mad at me.

3. You tie my statement condemning Texas as a condemnation of you because you feel I think that about all Texans and not just the ones that pull stupid shite. That’s your issue and not one I’m inclined to take responsibility for as it seems you’re unable to separate the two from one another.

4. Anything I said was was neither mean spirited or uncalled for. I suggested ending a friendship and unfollowing if my opinion offended you so. I suggested examining why my criticism of Texas would anger you, when clearly my opinion in no way included you within my criticism. I stated I would think this way, and currently do about several states for the actions perpetrated within their borders. If I am guilty of anything, it’s my frustration at you not getting what I was saying.

But you’re right. This has gone on far too long. And I am done.

To say that not all men or women are bad when talking about rape involving the attackers when they are women or men is ignorant.

To say not all whites are racist when presented with an incident where a white person committed a racist act is ignorant.

So when I say a specific state is the reason for my disdain in humanity after reading about a specific incident that takes place in said state; and your reaction is, “But that state isn’t all bad.”  How does that not make your statement any less ignorant? I’m dying to know.
