sparklingblackgel: Thanks for your OOC rant. I can understand people not liking sex or even being repulsed by it, but never feel like you're somehow less of a writer, roleplayer, or person for being the opposite, for writing what YOU want to write, roleplaying what YOU want to roleplay. I think your work is fantastic. Keep it up. <3

I can understand people not liking it either but that does not changes that one can make someone else feel ‘lesser’ than them. It was the way that this person and many others have made not only me but some of my friends feel. However, if they don’t like what they see, they’re free to unfollow. I am not keeping them chained to a wall here. Everyone has their own opinions. I just wish more people would be ‘open minded’….and I am not calling them close minded for it….shit, to some degree I am close minded on things. I just think it would be easier. If they don’t like it….don’t follow, or agree to disagree…It’s simple.

I’ve been made to feel that way in the past, too.  For some reason, there’s this prevailing belief that if roleplaying in particular (writing to some lesser degree but not nearly as much as RP) involves some form of sexual context, then it’s invalid, cheap, wrong, and stupid.  That just doesn’t make sense to me.

I think roleplay in any erotic/romantic/sexual context has been demonized to the degree it has because people in WoW in particular associate it with Moon Guard’s Goldshire, and they’ll do anything to “not be like that,” or perhaps they’re worried that being interested in ERP of any kind will “make them like that” in the eyes of others.  If I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say “Go back to Goldshire,” in reference to even the slightest hint of flirting, I’d be able to preorder WoD right the fuck now and the deluxe edition at that.  And probably a lot more stuff.  And maybe a house.

You don’t have to like ERP or romantic/erotic writing.  You don’t have to like sex.  But for fuck’s sake, stop shitting on people who do.  It’s not positive, it’s not healthy, and it’s not going to change anything.  I completely understand that when you’re sex-repulsed, it seems like you see it everywhere and naturally that gets frustrating.

And that’s why, even though I’m all for people doing what makes them happy, I’m not okay with ERP in public emotes, with shoving 18+ descriptions into MRPs in public areas, or with refusing to tag NSFW writing and content here on tumblr or elsewhere.

I don’t see it necessarily as a matter of open- or closed-mindedness, as I think there’s a lot more involved in it than that, though you are right.  Opening the mind is the first step in banishing a lot of the shame-based emotions involved in closed-mindedness.  Sex/eroticism is a difficult topic for some folks due to the fact that emotions tend to run deep on the subject. 

There’s a necessary balance of respectfulness to be kept on both sides, but I won’t tolerate shaming in any form.

All.

Of.

This.

How does Red plan on making it up to Kota? ( I had too. You knew this was coming, <3 )

Tattoo perhaps?  Hey, he’s always game for stabbing people with needles!  The man is always up for a good time and is quite up to date on the underground clubs and parties, you know the ones where you have to wear masks so no one can recognize each other outside of the club -just in case-.  

A night of drinking, perhaps drugs and frivolity is always on the table as those are most nights for him.  I’m sure they will find something fun to get themselves into.

I like all of the above. Every single one. Game on, <3

Hey! We have to reroute the brewfest pub crawl because of some phasing issues. When is good for everyone to meet up and go over the plans? I leave tomorrow so my time is limited. Would tonight be okay?

Thanks! :)
