Please read these comments before you remark on this stamp.
All right...To start...
I don't like any of the above. For those of you who aren't anime/manga fans: yaoi means guy-on-guy stuff, yuri means girl-on-girl, hentai is just anything pervy in general. (Just as a note, this applies to shonen-ai, etc.)
I MADE THIS STAMP INITIALLY TO ENSURE THAT NO ONE ASKS ME TO DRAW IT AND THAT NO ONE ASKS ME IF I LIKE IT. Thank you.
It's rather all over dA now,
and if you don't like it it's rather hard to find people like-minded so you can get non-slashy art. This stamp thus also expresses my opinion; if you're of the opposite opinion, you're entirely entitled to that. It's called "free will," you know. I just...really don't want to see it. So excuse me, if you're offended. Everyone's offended by something.
Don't go about saying that I posted this just because I'm a Christian, either. There have been quite a few comments from non-Christians/etc. stating that they're just tired of seeing such things in the fandom, or people saying that they think a little is okay but the sheer amount has gotten ridiculous. And it really, genuinely has.
Don't also go about saying this is a "perv/'gay'-bashing stamp." (Though, I don't like the term 'gay' being used for homosexuals. I prefer to use the actual term. I'm tired of not being able to use the words 'gay' or 'queer' in their real, dictionary-meaning due to a bunch of wordtwisters.)
This isn't that. For one thing, hentai can be heterosexual as well as homosexual. For another, I love everyone, seriously. If you think I have a problem with you, or you with me, come and talk to me about it, we'll try to set things right. Christ says if we can't love our neighbour, we can't hope to love Him, and that's grand logic for you. This stamp simply says, I don't like seeing pervy (hentai) and/or homosexual art.
(Personally I believe such things are a sin, but that's not the purpose of this stamp--if I was making an anti-sin stamp I'd make...an anti-sin stamp, because all sin is sin and is bad...)
But it even goes well beyond that. I'm absolutely SICK of seeing characters who, in their natural story environment are enemies/friends/family/complete strangers, getting shoved together to rape each other/have sex just because of some fanboy/fangirl's urges. It's not a rare occurrence, it's almost every single piece of yaoi/yuri/hentai out there. You try to look up something you like. Like, say...Star Trek. And instead of art about that grand, noble, humorous, dramatic epic of exploration and civilisation, you get...people kissing and doing each other constantly. Stuff like that does indeed happen, but....constantly? Is that what the message of Star Trek is? No. Nor is it the message of most fandoms that end up getting filled with porn or soft porn or annoying romantic fluff.
Another example is the manga and anime ONE PIECE. Eiichiro Oda, the author, has stated that he does not think the crew will ever be romantically involved with one another, and that it isn't his intention at all. But people still put characters like Zoro and Sanji together, because it's considered "hot." But think about the fact that a lot of fans aren't into the series because it may have some 'cute' guys, but because they like the fights, the adventure, the humour, the PLOT (good heavens, what a notion) and might want to see some art depicting such from time to time. More explosions, please--less nudity!
Please don't flame. If you do want to comment in an opposing way, that's fine--just be CIVIL. Thank you in advance. I appreciate civility. EDIT: New, sleeker design. Comment if you liked the older one better, though I don't know why you would.For more stamps, visit my Stamps gallery folder by clicking here.
