Hermann, I haven’t exactly had a very good day, ok?
Destroy all attractive WTNV headcanons.
Cecil is based on these.
Okay hold up why the fuck are you shitting on other people’s headcanons though. You aren’t superior because your headcanons aren’t pretty, chill the fuck out.
- I never shat on any specific person’s headcanons, I’m not a complete douchebag. A lot of the “pretty” headcanons are drawn by talented artists that I respect greatly.
- My intent was to point out the fact that there is a serious lack of diversity in the WtNV tag. That is all.
- I’m absolutely not superior to anyone, most of the artists in the WtNV are absolutely more talented and accomplished than I am.
- You are being overly hostile over a statement that was intended to be nothing more than a half-serious jab at the fandom. Which, you gotta admit, is a little stagnant. All I was trying to accomplish was to get people to realise that they can draw something other than… what everyone else draws. Whatever that may be. And a lot of people have responded very positively to the concept. ‘Cept you. Which leads me to think that maybe you’re just looking to shit on someone yourself?
it always disappointed me that Monster Girls are an anime porn thing rather than something used to explore the way society and the media dehumanises women, but oh well
shout out to all my fellow monsters
I am upset at this in quite a few ways.
Nothing directly stated. In point of fact, I too, am a monster. I live every day as a monster. I do my daily monster routine. Go shopping for monster groceries. Do monster chores. Monster bathe. Do monster odd jobs around the house. Go for monster walks.
Let me ask though. Have you ever called someone a neckbeard? Of course you have. I’m sure you’ve flung that insult around like candy at a Halloween parade. In this place of monsters and evil and us-versus-them-isms, it’s hard not to. I mean, look at them. They say mean things and LOOK AT HOW UGLY THEY ARE.
So that is what you do. That is what we all do. When someone wounds us we make monsters out of them too. Look at that shitlord huh? Boy what a neckbeard VIRGIN LOSER. Believe me. I should know. I’ve been called it so many times for disagreeing with these opinions. And why do I disagree with these opinions?
Because I don’t think that these are monsters. I don’t see monsters at all. I don’t see a world of monsters. Not even from the people who call you or I monsters. Even though you call me a monster and I think it’s wrong, I don’t see you as a monster. Someone told me on 4chan something and I refused to believe him at the time, but it gave me great hope. He didn’t see good or evil. He saw pain. And like I said, at that time, I didn’t believe him either and I don’t think you will believe me either. But that’s neither here nor there. Because I believe him now. No matter what you think of them, or of me, I don’t believe in monsters. These are people who are hurting and say things out of hurt. Maybe they were hurt and they see their pain in you and want to admonish their pain through you. How dare you not feel the same pain they felt for the same reason. Everyone should have to feel what they felt if they had to feel it.
And so too does it go with you and most of the community here that I have seen. “Oh but these misogynists DESERVE to be hurt. They DESERVE to be called these things. They don’t DESERVE tolerance.” And you make more little monsters. And they will make more monsters. And we will have a world of monsters. And people will go on believing in monsters for as long as there is a world to believe in monsters. That’s ok. We shouldn’t tolerate intolerance from MONSTERS. We shouldn’t HAVE to treat them like we would ourselves. We should treat PEOPLE equally.
We will drive ourselves to extinction and breed a race of monsters and the last men will die alone believing there is no such thing.
In more real terms and in less poetic drivel and nonsense:
I see this exact same behavior towards me and, well, to be blunt: men every day. Not a person says a thing about it. In point of fact, it usually comes from people identical to yourself, if not from you yourself exactly I would be severely surprised. If I chastise, it’s out of compassion, sympathy and empathy. Not hate or anger. Though I’d be lying if I didn’t feel a little upset at reading this; since it seems you’re a little oblivious to the way I see the community lash out and make the same comments back at other people. I see it and hear it all the time from the tumblr community. I’m not even overweight. However I will make the point more trenchant and clear by saying I fully anticipate the following insults to be thrown back at me; a list of insults that have already been thrown my way, mind you. Nothing that hasn’t already been said a million times.
- shitlord (by the way, I want to raise a point about this; lord is strictly male, by all definitions. Just thought I’d point that out.)
And what I get from other people doesn’t bother me as well. I don’t mind. I’m a big boy and this is the standard fare I get day in and day out both here and at 4chan. It’s all the same really. The only thing that bothers me is the hypocrisy. The hypocrisy of advocating of equal treatment…While at the same time crying about that treatment that you dole out to others. No matter the slight, is it really fair for you to call this treatment that you receive unfair while at the same time giving that treatment to others?
It’s my belief that if you call a treatment unfair, than it is unfair. Not to you, not to anybody. If it’s not ok to be done to you, it’s not ok to do. You can’t rationalize it away. Unfair is unfair. Wrong is wrong. You can’t simply handwave away someone else’s feelings because you dislike or even hate them. What they did is irrelevant to my morals and how I uphold them. If they do wrong that does not permit me to violate my ethical and moral standards. If I do wrong, it doesn’t matter what they did or not. Then I have done wrong. Two wrongs do not make a right; this is a logical axiom as well.
But those are my morals. And, I don’t know if they are yours. So I can’t force my morals on you. I can only furrow my brow as a monster and express my distaste at your opinion and await the inevitable garbage that you pelt at me. I won’t strike back. I won’t call a horde or a mob of friends and followers; I have neither. Restating: A world in which monsters believe in monsters creates a world of monsters. I do not believe in them.
Wanna make a monster? Take the parts of yourself that make you uncomfortable—your weaknesses, bad thoughts, vanities, and hungers—and pretend they’re across the room. It’s too ugly to be human. It’s too ugly to be you. Children are afraid of the dark because they have nothing real to work with. Adults are afraid of themselves. -Richard Siken, Black Telephone
As it turns out though…
I was the monster at the end of the book all along.
oh my fucking god did you really just try to derail my post about society’s unfair standards of female beauty to be about people being mean to you about your fedora
and spend about twelve thousand paragraphs doing so
holy fucking shit
No, I made no such statement. No. I do not have a fedora. I’m saying acting like a monster….well…a jerk.
Actually you’re doing that now. You’re doing everything I kind of said you might. And would do. I didn’t say your comic was wrong. Not at all. Your comic’s right on the money. People are jerks.
You’re one of them though. You’re acting like the very people you hate in that comic right now. That’s why I made this post. Because I was saying, “hey, some people on this site are kinda hypocrites.”
Turns out, you’re one of them. I was hoping you weren’t. Wow. Holy shit I called it. I couldn’t be more right. Not only are you bitching about people acting like superficial, “you look ugly so you must be a monster” jerks, you’re being one.
Jesus christ what the hell.
the comic isn’t about “people being meanies”?? the comic is about how society and media massively distorts the female body to an unobtainable level and punishes women who cannot adhere to it. It’s about how this imagery is so prevalent in media and society that girls who don’t fit it feel alien, because we never see ourselves represented. We feel like aliens in our own gender, who don’t fit what society tells us a woman should be.
My comic is not “sometimes people hurt my feelings”, and it’s not “people are jerks”. You’ve completely misconstrued the point of the comic in an attempt to make it something you personally can relate to, and done so in a way to try to make yourself some sort of victim. I’m sorry dude, but maybe my comic isn’t about you. Someone calling you a “neckbeard” for having gross opinions online isn’t the same as all of society and media alienating you for your gender and body. Your giant essay is not only completely off-point, it’s self-pitying tripe.
If you wanna talk about people being mean on 4chan or whatever the shit all that rambling said, make a post about it. Don’t cry all over a post about a completely different issue to try to make it about yourself. Or maybe, y’know, try understanding issues that affect others without trying to make them about yourself and your own feelings.
If you’re going to be an asshole, fine. You don’t like me, you’re going to act like you know it all, like you can do no evil, whatever. I’m not going to buy into your hate. Despite it all, I’m still a person. You’re still a person. I don’t believe in monsters and I won’t. Insult me for it. I said I can take it and I will.
Why is neckbeard an ok insult to fling around. If you feel bad as a kid for being more hairy than others, shave. There. I said it. Or if being a more hairy woman isn’t something to be ashamed of, then neither should being a more hairy man. Being a neckbeard shouldn’t be an insult you can use.
If sexual agency isn’t an insult you can fling around to women who can’t get sex, then you can’t fling it at men. I never wanted this about me. I still don’t. Just plainly, I want you to treat people like you want to be treated. I thought the comic was such a great sentiment. I thought it was sweet. I’m facing disillusionment. But that’s on me. That’s all on me. Sorry. I’m getting off track. I’m honest. Pardon me. I see you say things like you don’t want people to fling insults around and shit. Wow. That’s a great sentiment.
I really wish you would hold that sentiment closer to your own heart. I really do. I’m sticking to my convictions here. My original complaint with my comic? not the message of the comic. But that too few people actually believe in what the message says. People should fling less insults around like the kind you enjoy. The kind of superficial tripe you fling. I’m sorry that’s really mean but it’s true, you’re acting like a big, well, you said it. Meanie. You’ve done nothing but hurt insults because I said that a lot of people don’t take the message of the comic to heart. Why did you make the comic anyway? Was it just a story of what happened? How you grew up to learn how to throw insults like that? I don’t understand. I’m not understanding this at all. But more to the point I didn’t say or mean to say that what you went through is anything similar to one thing or another.
No. What I’m saying is that no matter what. Whether you call this idealistic or not. It’s wrong to spout the kind of hateful nastiness you’re spouting now. That’s my belief. If you insult me for it then…Then I’m proud. I’m proud to say that I got mocked for my convictions. I’m not going to back down to you no matter how many people you get to mock me. Yes it’s childish. But sometimes no matter how many people laugh at you. No matter how many people deride you. You’ve got to be able to stand up for a minute and at least say SOMETHING.
Yeah I’m sorry you got bullied as a girl. It’s a terrible thing. I got bullied. A lot of people did. Was it awful? Yeah. We all didn’t deserve what happened. Not you, not anybody. That’s the point.
Strictly, The point. STRAIGHT TO THE POINT:
YOU CAN’T ACT LIKE HOW PEOPLE TREATED YOU JUST BECAUSE IT HAPPENED TO YOU.
READ THE BOLD IF YOU DISLIKE LONG POSTS.
yeah but her point is really clear and you’re REALLY missing it they aren’t saying those things aren’t shit (maybe they are idk!!!i can’t talk for someone else!!! but like i think they’re average to mild shit not really that bad since they’re kinda REALLY not serious insults) but that please don’t turn they’re comic about /INTERNALISED/ MEDIA and LIFE body image and expectations of women make women seem inhumane because you’re not seen as society wants you to and you’re not a good woman unless you’re those things
recent in-joke insults you get on the internet and almost nO WHERE else
for instance, how many chubby hairy beard famous actors/comedians are there that can dress like average guys and people still go omg they’re so cute and funny! and in life can go along being chubby or overweight and people go cute! handsome! (like they should) but the same doesn’t happen to women
if you don’t understand their frustration at you derailing and making it about another issue that you have occasionally compared to internalised issues
then i can’t help you dude
BOGUS. Maybe they don’t think there’s enough demand or something? I almost want to go send a tweet to them now asking…
Yeah I tweeted and asked if there’s a chance of Escape Velocity ending up on Steam, no response yet but it’s worth a shot
you should go buy this comic for free! just add it to your cart, add promo code “widow” and it’ll get knocked down from $3.99 to the wonderful price of free!
if you are interested in beautiful art and in natasha romanoff doing cool action spy shit, this is the book for you!
Pyrovision’s neat! C: Sorry for the gore…
I know I said I was on drawing hiatus but I really needed a distraction at the moment. And tf2 drawing calms me.. (;-;) I have met a lot of immature jerks on servers and it rarely fazes me, but having to meet this one particular player today put me in the most sour and frustrated mood. But it’s all in the past, I must let it goo… And draw this short engiexpyro comic for my dear friend lightcharm ;D

Some of you MSTies may have heard the game Escape Velocity has an easter egg that’s a reference to the forklift song…I found a plugin for it that enabled the weapon by default and decided to show it off (while promptly killing myself in the process). I ran this in Basilisk II, an excellent Mac emulator.
Oh dang the best part about this was way you enabled this easter egg (other than the weapon itself which was waaayyy too fantastic I loved it) was by like… holding down x then pressing the title I think? And then like a set of parody lyrics for the MST3k theme came up about the programmer staying up too late to work on the game and scrolled past, ending with Tom Servo going “He tried to kill me with a forklift!” and going back to the title screen, gosh what memories. Haha I love this game, I totally wish Escape Velocity Nova had this easter egg (or that i could get Escape Velocity original to work in Nova theoretically there’s a way I just… can’t quite get it to work though I should have all the required parts I am not good at computer)
The forklift took a little getting used to as a weapon, definitely better long-range haha. I am not good at games which is why I heavily relied on it and got used to using it a lot…
You have to hold down the Apple key on a Mac while clicking the logo and then you get the MST3K parody lyrics, then you press Command + Apple + whatever key replaces Alt on a Mac keyboard and F and hold them at the end of the lyrics when the date appears and then the soundbite of the forklift song plays.
I wish Ambrosia would put the damn game on Steam because it costs $30 for the game’s activation code and they’re practically dead because nobody is buying it.
Ah, yeah, that sounds right. It’s been a few years since I’ve had our old computer up from the basement that has Escape Velocity on it, my new machine only has Nova because I shelled out the 30 bucks some years ago for it
Augh, I know! A few of their other older games are on Steam, is there some like rights thing I’m not aware of with the Escape Velocity series and why it’s not there?
I have no idea. They just said “We looked into it and it’s not something we want to do at the moment” on Twitter and it’s kind of dumb. Is it that hard?
BOGUS. Maybe they don’t think there’s enough demand or something? I almost want to go send a tweet to them now asking about it…
