HAPPY HOLIDAYS GIVEAWAY!
Tis this season and while I wish I could do more I wanted to at least do a tiny little giveaway for my absurdly awesome followers. Seriously guys, you all rock and I want you to know how much I appreciate you all! So here are some little goodies for you!
•••HOW TO ENTER•••
• US Residents only! I’m sorry, international friends, but the United States has strict rules about shipping animal parts internationally.
• Be following me (since this is a follower appreciation giveaway after all).
• Like or Reblog this post as many times as you want.
• Have your ask box open so I can contact you when you win.
• And as per Tumblr’s giveaway rules you must be 18 or older to enter (or have a parent/guardian act in your stead). Also per their rules I must state that this giveaway is in no way affiliated with Tumblr.
I will be paying the shipping costs so the winners need not worry about that.
I’ll be contacting the winners on December 25th! You’ll have five days to respond with a shipping address otherwise I will select another winner.
Now the fun part.
There will be two winners selected. Each one will receive one of the lots pictured above. These lots contain:
Piece of Wolverine Fur
Small Peacock Feather
Gar Fish Scales
Fossilized Stingray Mouthplates
Pyrite Cubic Crystals
Purple Cowrie Shells
Yellow Littorina Shells
Chukar Partridge Feathers
Sea Urchin Spines
Each item will come bagged and with a card labeling it and telling a little bit about the item (pictured). I’ll probably be adding more items too so you’ll likely be receiving more than what is pictured.
So there you go! Have fun, best of luck, and Happy Holidays!

It’s fine for men to watch shojo anime and read shojo manga like Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura.
It’s fine for men to make pornographic doujinshi of these, buy figurines, and jack off to the characters.
It’s fine for men to completely invade a Pretty Cure forum created for young girls and scare said girls away. It’s fine for these men to twist the entire fandom around themselves, its fine for them to show up to Pretty Cure events in throngs and its fine for them to frantically grab all the free handouts before any of the girls can.
It’s also fine for men to take these magical girl anime made for girls that celebrate being a girl and make them all about their pornography and which girl they most want to put their dick in. It’s fine, because theres even a cute name for them, ‘Ooki Tomodachi’ (Big Friend).
It’s fine for them to do the same with My Little Pony, of course. It’s fine that they can make the voice actors of the show uncomfortable with personal questions, its fine that they can yell out rape jokes to them at conventions, its fine that they have basically made it impossible for any of the 8 year old girls the show was made for to ever google it in public. It’s fine for them to gather in the toy stores around the pony toys and intimidate young girls. It’s fine that the whole show, created to celebrate femininity and how ‘theres no wrong way to be a girl’ is now associated with their fetishes. And its so fine that these male fans get given a cute name (‘brony’), get documentaries made about them, have newspaper article after blog post after feature talking about how they are ‘challenging gender norms’ and ‘transforming pop culture’.
But if a girl ‘trespasses’ into a male space, what happens? (Even when it isnt ‘trespassing’, in the case of Free!, in which a space was actually made for us ) We can expect such timeless classics as: degradation, ‘you’re not even a REAL fan!’ ‘I bet you dont even know ______’, all kinds of threats, and, of course, the posts you see on this blog.—
This nailed my anger at the whole Brony phenomenon perfectly, yo.
I only just heard about a teen girl being harassed with rape threats because she spoke up about the triggery “Princess Molestia” meme rampant in the fandom. I think this post is very relevant.
This! This nails what makes me so uncomfortable about brony stuff. I don’t care if guys like “girl” things. What bothers me is how they move into a female space and take it over and make it all about their dicks, then act offended when women get uncomfortable with it. They cannot imagine a space that they can’t co-opt and make their own.
BUT they also can’t imagine women having their own space OR invading a “male” space like comic books or science fiction. Jesus fucking christ, dudes, could we women get a little fucking space?
I consider myself to be a brony, but I’m really beginning to second guess the label since it seems to carry all the baggage of the icky parts of the fandom. I like My Little Pony. It’s fun, clever, wholesome, well-animated and all the stuff you hear adult fans of the show say about the show. I like the show. I don’t want to have sex with the show and I don’t want to make the target audience for the show uncomfortable.
I consider this to be a symptom of the greater problem which I think is fandomization. When something becomes a phenomenon, people gravitate to it, obsess over it and nerd out over it. It is the foundation of geek culture. The problem is, people who are immature and socially inept will also flock to these fandoms. Getting excited about a show or a comic and spewing encyclopedic knowledge of the show or a comic can become a substitute for mature conversation and using characters from the show for sexual gratification can become a substitute for developing a mature adult relationship.
This is less about the patriarchy wanting to rub their dicks on things and more about lonely isolated people finding something to obsess over with other lonely isolated people… and rubbing their dicks/vaginas all over things. These people are not powerful. Often, people who are unhealthily obsessed with something do so because they have little or no control over their own lives.
I’m not trying to justify or excuse the behavior of these people. There is still a code of behavior that they should be held to. Of course they should be mindful of the feelings of the voice actors the young girls who watch the shows. They should respect people’s space. They should not shame people or challenge people on their knowledge of the show and accuse them of “not being real fans”. They should not post inappropriate material on forums that aren’t dedicated to that kind of thing. All of these things they should not do.
All these things and more they should not do, but I would be careful about getting into the business of what people can or can’t get off to. If they’re not harming anyone and they’re keeping it to themselves, that’s their own business even if it is indicative of an immature and unhealthy mentality towards sex. I would also be careful about jumping to conclusions about large groups of people. Are there asshole bronies? Yeah. But there are also bronies that have been inspired by the show to volunteer at soup kitchens and raise money for cancer research. There are also many women that take on the label “brony” or ”pegasister”. There is a large LGBT following of MLP and the fandom is by-in-large-part supportive. I’m not trying to paint bronies as saints. And I’m not saying there aren’t problems with the community, but the whole thing is just a fandom, like any other fandom.

The holidays are afoot. Do you like getting mail? You might get a card from me if one (or more) of these applies to you:
1) I know you IRL
2) We’ve had a long-going mutual follow
3) We have spoken before, more than once
4) You’ve bought something from me
They won’t actually be holiday-themed since I want to use up some red flowery stationery, but I’ll include some sweet words and maybe a little ink illustration. Send me an ask or reblog this if you’re interested, or if you want to know if you qualify. I’m just a wee bit paranoid so I have to have a few restrictions.
I’d be totally up for that! :D
Shout out to all the closeted LGBT people who have to return to unsafe family environments this season. Remember that there is nothing wrong with you and that no, you are not a hypocrite for loving the people who raised you despite the things they have done to hurt you. Above all remember that you will always have friends who support you even if your family does not.
