This is probably the only photo of sex that I will ever reblog. I feel like it reminds people that sex is something special, and precious. You are being put into your most vulnerable stage and devoting yourself to your partner. Nobody should commercialize sex, the meaning and beauty will just be lost.

This ^^

That comment ^

or sex is just sex and people can make it as meaningful or meaningless as they want.

It’s a desaturated picture of two Caucasians who may or may not be fucking. It’s faceless, impersonal…I don’t even understand how this is a good photo from an artistic standpoint. There’s no good form, no focal point - just a mashing of grey limbs in an unbalanced frame. 
What makes this special? We don’t know who these people are. Maybe they’re partners. Maybe they’re using each other to cheat on their spouses. Maybe they’re just models. In fact, considering that there was likely someone there taking the photo, it is in all likelihood that this is a commercial image of some sort.  
Sex shouldn’t make you feel vulnerable (unless you want it to, of course). Maybe you’re having sex with the love of your life on the night of your wedding. Or maybe you’re having a one night stand with someone you barely know. As long as you’re doing it safely and consensually, it shouldn’t really matter from an outsider’s perspective. 
Putting such an emphasis on how “important” and “special” sex is degrades those who cannot or do not want to have sex (or feel no desire for it, etc.) and is but a stone’s throw from slut shaming. Sure, sex can be great. It can be a very emotional experience. But romanticizing it in this way does not paint the kind of beauty it can have, it just makes people feel bad if they themselves find no need for it, or choose to do it in other ways.

    sex, rant, nsfw, opinion, i'm slightly drunk,

  3. It kind of really upsets me that any time I watch any atheism-related videos (which have nothing to do with gender politics), I get a shit-ton of anti-feminist videos in my recommendations. 

    I get upset just looking at the titles and don’t have the nerve to go and downvote them in the hopes that my recs will go back to normal.

    Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to.  I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.

    The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.

    If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!

    Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.

    We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.

    Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.

  14. Meet Magnus!

    Note: The tank in these images is larger than it seems, and is not permanent. He will be moved to a large enclosure.

  18. We went to a reptile expo in northern MD today. Told myself I wouldn’t buy anything but ended up getting a boa.

    Gonna move him into Jake’s cage for now and move Jake into a smaller enclosure.

    The new guy is super sweet, about 6 feet, good weight. Been a pet all his life and it shows, as he’s chilling in my lap in a pillow case right now.

    He’s got be our last pet for a good while. I’m thinking of naming him Magnus.
