DAB Day 2015 by Florrosada12
DAB Day 2015
Hey guys! 

Heres a quick drawing I did for Draw a Bird day.

If you don't know the story behind Draw a Bird day then I'll give a brief summary, I know that I have a tendency to ramble. 

A little girl named Dorie Cooper, in an effort to cheer up her uncle who had lost a limb in a war, asked him to draw a bird for her, the drawing wasn't very good, but she said that she would keep it nevertheless and soon other soldiers were drawing birds as well. Dorie died three years later when she was hit by a car, and several pictures of birds were drawn by soldiers, nurses and doctors in her honor. Draw a Bird day is on her birthday, April 8th.  

Heres the full story and the official website : www.dabday.com/

This drawing is made in Dorie's memory, although you are gone, you will never be forgotten...

Chrysanthumum by Florrosada12
Chrysanthumum
This is for Geekgirl8's contest. I was going to submit a picture of the lovely Crysanthumum here with one of my Oc's, but I felt that it was focusing more on my Oc than it was on Crysanthumum. So I scrapped it and drew her wearing a lovely summer outfit.

Overall, I'm glad I decided to do this, its small, but cute. Maybe I'll redraw the original idea I had for the contest as its own piece.

I suck at supporting feminism.

I literally just spent about 20 minutes trying to compose a message saying that the movement isn't about sexism, but about gender equality. I was even going to include a snippet about my still boiling rage upon a long tumblr post full of anti feminist posts about how men suck and how baby boys are the spawn of evil (even though all babies are beautiful creatures who deserve proper love and affection), but I chickened out and cut it down to two sentences. And lo and behold the first commenter I get is an anti fem who immediately blames the issues ON MEN

Jesus Christ lady! BLAMING THE DUDES IS NOT GOING TO HELP! Her and all her kind are the reasons why this movement has so much shit attached to its name, not the dudes.

Sure, there are crazy guys out there who just can't be swayed on their thinking no matter what. But for the love of god, the reason why most guys seem to be so apprehensive about feminism are because they have dealt with a crazy person putting them down and treating them badly because of their gender, and said person claimed that they were a feminist. I'll bet you that a crazy person was the reason behind most of that thinking.

And the sickening thing is, they think they're good feminists, good people.

Well I say no. in order to support something that is trying to benefit humanity, ESPECIALLY FEMINISM, you have to be unbiased in your thinking. 

And you know what, websites like tumblr (Ok, pretty much entirely tumblr) helped me to realize how stifling gender rules are, and it strengthened my resolve on being a feminist as well as my pride in being a woman. Case in point being that, I see posts that remind me of indecencies that guys have to deal with, guys being hurt, abused and RAPED and told to suck it up because they're guys and they can deal with it. 

NO ONE should have to deal with shit like that because they are one gender. NO ONE should be made to feel badly because of one so called feminist, and NO ONE WHO IS BIASED TOWARDS ONE GENDER SHOULD BE SUPPORTING AN EQUAL RIGHTS MOVEMENT. Change your attitude towards the idea that all men are evil, or don't call yourself a feminist and leave your bile to yourself. You are making the real feminists, the ones who DO CARE about men as well as they do women look bad, and are dragging an equal rights movement through the mud.

And if I'm not brave enough to say this on youtube, then I will say it here. 

Sorry, I know this is really angry. But I feel like I needed to get my viewpoint out there. Hopefully I can teach a few people some things. Because I don't want feminism to be seen as this evil thing, I want people to see the truth. I guess I've always been loyal to the causes I support....
