About as close as I’ll ever want to be to holding a baby.

About as close as I’ll ever want to be to holding a baby.

If I were to say that I were any one thing, it’d be a lie.
I am a collection of similarities and opposites and gray areas.
I’m not white, not straight, not masculine, not intelligent.
I am neither a PoC, Gay, Feminine, nor stupid.
All of these things are polarizing, and while one may say that in a particular situation I may be one of these, or that I am one of these to simplify an answer to a question, I am not simply any of these things.

I am more white than I am a person of color, it’s evident in my skin color. At the same time, I have people of color in my family tree, even if it’s a long way back.

I am more straight than I am gay, but there are men out there that I find physically alluring and there are men out there that I’ve bonded with in a deep way.

I am more masculine than I am feminine, but that is wiggly line I walk… I am gentle and soft and nurturing, and I am certainly not very aggressive… At the same time I enjoy the ruggedness of my own masculinity and masculine roles I play. (My wife and I have reverse traditional gender roles in our careers. She works a very physical job restoring old houses, where I work a very emotional job taking care of the disabled)

I like to think that I am more intelligent than I am stupid, but I often find myself really just not understanding things. I’ll find myself needing people to break down what they are explaining to me as if they were talking to a child. At the same time, I spend a lot of my time educating.

I think it’s important to remember that before we’re anything else, we’re people.

I’m a person, you’re a person, the straight guy down the street is a person, the transgendered lady in aisle five is a person, that fellow with down syndrome waiting for the bus is a person.
We could have nothing else in common, but we are people, and being people means that we already have a shit ton of things in common.

I think I’m going to start doing commissions… Right now I’m working on a pricing system… But shipping of the original art will be included in the price.

Probably be something like $15 for a pencil sketch, 30 for copics, 40 for charcoal, and 60 for mixed media… Plus 15 dollars for every hour past the first hour I actually spend working on the piece… I dunno… I’ll figure something out.

So for the first time in a while, I’ve been convinced to take something down.
Because tone does a lot to a message.

Thanks samuel-carswell, your point of view made me look at it differently.

Thank you! That really made me happy.

I’m glad you understood why it was so problematic, rather than taking it as something personal.

I like to think I’m a reasonable person.

We need to create the porn we’d want our children to watch.

So I happened to be in the shower this morning, musing as I do sometimes, and I was thinking how kids often get their idea of what sex will be like from pornography. Quite often the subject and details are much more than what parents are comfortable with and children are left to search for answers on their own. Porn is one of, if not the first thing that pops up when you type sex into a Google search.
And if I’ve learned anything from watching or looking at porn, is that it’s not really realistic and it doesn’t really give an accurate impression of what sex is really like.

My first time was full of awkwardness and hormones and expectations that I couldn’t live up to and neither could my sexual partner.

So why not make one long porn, that has a) a wide array of actors of all races and orientations and sizes and genders and b) both fantastic and realistic portrayals of what sex is like.

With digital formatting, and a good table of contents, the youth could search through to the particular pairings that that individual found interesting and they could actually learn something about sex.
Because really, most teens don’t get as much as we’d like from health class or their parents because it’s often uncomfortable for them to listen to such thing… A movie can be enjoyed in the privacy of their own home without the (real or imagined) judgement of whoever would normally be giving the information.
