Why is femslash the smallest genre in the world of fanfiction? Why is femslash the most underrepresented relationship type by a sizeable margin? More importantly, why is it that almost all femslash writers are queer women? Male slash pairings are written by straight women, queer women, and even some men (I say “even” because men are rarer than a two dollar bill in the world of fanfiction) and they’re read by a mostly female audience. Femslash has a completely different ideology, because it’s almost exclusively written and consumed by the community it portrays. Unlike a straight girl writing about two boys having sex (and I guarantee that they’re two conventionally attractive white boys whose female love interests have been deemed either worthy of death or asexual by the fandom), femslash is written by those whose identities and personal narratives are reflected in the stories themselves. Maybe the writer of that erotic scene hasn’t had sex with a girl yet, but damn, she has thought about it a lot. That queer author writes two girls falling in love even if they’re straight in the original work because two girls falling in love means something to her and to so many people like her, and it’s important that she sees herself in a piece of media whose canon forgets she exists. One of the great frustrations of LGBTQ media is the fact that so little of our representations end up coming from LGBTQ-identified creators, and thus we see inaccurate portrayals with limited diversity. Femslash exists because we were sick of being told we didn’t exist, so we wrote ourselves into their stories.
Well, I never understood, why so many LGBT people (especially lesbians) loves slash and yaoi and hates femslash and yuri. That’s beyond  my mind. There is so much hate for women coming from other women in my community, it is upsetting for me as feminist and lesbian, who writes stories about lesbian women.

Please, don't buy recasts

freakstylebjd:

For a long time I’ve been hesitant to write this post, because I don’t want it to come across as a cry for sympathy. And I don’t want to wage war on paper.
When talking about recasting, I could of course point fingers and say how the recast community has changed from “target only the big boys”…

It is antique porcelain doll I found in second-hand market long time ago. Finally we found time to work with her ^_^
I have no idea what kind of doll she is, and could not find any info about her.
She was rather badly damaged, I resculpted her face a little (added nose and eyelids) and repainted her face. Her right  hand was restored too, there was no fingers on it. She has a new cloth body too, because the old was falling apart.
So we decided to name her Greta and she will be a good addition to our doll family now =)

The Actual Scale of (Some) Korean BJD Companies.

TLDR: Bolded parts.

I noticed a post going around on my dash this morning regarding the recast debate. Now, that’s not something I want to get into since I’ve already made my stance clear both on/offline. (I’m anti-recast/pro-artist for anyone who cares).

The point of this…

I hope some recast-lovers will read this and finally understand who they are stealing from. This is not some big fat companies they think will not suffer the lack of orders, but small private workshops.
