Pet Peeves

Permanent Linkby Chameleonette on Wed Aug 07, 2013 10:39 am

Alright, so there's one thing about the content of this site that is getting a little irritating to find in so many threads on the forum.

Why on earth do people have to keep making statements like "this type of vore is clearly the best!", "well this is obviously way better than all the other types of vore..." etc, etc, etc.

Is this really needed? Is this supposed to be a contest? Can't we all just agree that it's our own personal opinions and not facts thrown out there to challenge others and create unneeded tension? And there's no need to cut down what someone else likes just because you don't agree with it, either. I don't care if this site is predominantly male prey types. It doesn't ruin my enjoyment of what I like or change my preferences.

I may not be at all interested in submissive men, but I don't begrudge them (nor the non-submissive ones) what their preferences are or what they enjoy. I stick to the corners that I'm comfortable in and create for the sake of adding to that. So why does this not work both ways? I mean, I've even RPed with someone who was like "Well I'm only RPing this for your sake. I'm not really into it. And by the way I have this great RP going with another partner where I'm playing what I prefer."

It does NOT make me happy if someone is just trying to change their preferences to play with me because I'm female or something. RP is meant to be a mutual enjoyment endeavor!

Now, don't get me wrong. I've also been graced with the good fortune of RPing with a handful of people who actually do enjoy the same things I do. And that's great--I'm not belittling that in any manner at all. I'm more than grateful for the opportunities and I've been having a great time.

I just wanted to get this off of my chest.

In other news, if you've possibly read "Late Return", I did a sketch of Rohann and mini-Lucia (though the sketch really has nothing to do with the story events). After nephilim brought up an interesting mental image and got me thinking, I wanted to at least try something to get a feel for what they looked like. (I may try the armchair thing again some day, but that first attempt was awful. So I did something more vore-related, instead.)

That may get uploaded later today or possibly tomorrow. I haven't fixed it up yet, but it's at least scanned.

I hesitate to respond to your question, mostly it may not really be a question, just a view you hold that you felt needed to be shared. On that same note, I feel like adding my thoughts to the mix. Simply put, most of the people here may be a bit confused or at odds with what they enjoy here. At a surface glance, it is very easy to see the conflict between the different groups, but to me it feels like they are all trying to get validation for what they like.

I may find the thought of power and pure control over my life and others exhilarating, but at the same time I would be appalled with the thought of me actually ending a life(a self aware one, I am aware of the cow in my burger), especially when it's simply for my own pleasure. For preys it's the same thing, although from the opposite side of the fork, and when we sit back and think about it, we have to wonder why we like this.

And so to validate ourselves in front of others, we pick sides and try and stand up, saying that what we like is not only normal, but a standard of normality that all should strive for. And then when someone challenges that, we get upset and bicker simply because we're a bit weirder then the guy who likes to be unbirthed, or the player who likes to be turned into a cock for their lover, or baked into a cake... or the billion other oddities.

On by being female, yes, you are a big challenge to their view. You are something they expect to be dominant and controlling like their fantasies, and instead they find another prey. It has nothing to do with your actions, but to them you are THE thing to prove all their gnawing little self doubts about what they'll find in this life, even though you're totally respecting their boundaries and just trying to rally other people with your interests.

By being able to simply stand up and say everything is equal, you posses a rare level of compassion that is not just hard to find on this site, but in humanity in general. I hope you go places and can show people that the world isn't black and white, but something much more complex.

...but yeah, again this is just my thought on the matter, I'll be the first to admit I could very easily be wrong. But it's my view on the matter, and I just felt like sharing it... also Can't wait to see the picture, and I'm pretty sure I shouldn't be posting a thought like this when I'm half asleep, I'm sure I've been a bit more insulting then I think I've posted... sorry in advance.
Beautiful prey,
squirms in my agony,
fuel for my lust.

It's a poor excuse for a haiku, but still one of the better things I have written. XD

Well, it wasn't exactly an actual question, but I don't mind that you responded to it, nonetheless. And please, don't apologize! I wrote this mainly to get it out instead of letting it stir inside of me to the point that I start to get angry eventually (which I have a really bad habit of doing). I guess in a way, I had unfair expectations about this site. I'm new to embracing the vore kink as a whole, and since it was definitely one of the more "out-there" fetishes, I had it ingrained into my mind that such a thing must bring all of the community together, especially one that had been around so many years already. So seeing how certain types are more alienated and spoken out against, I became disappointed.

I see what you're saying, though. The hopes I held were unfounded and I accept the reality of what's going on. I suppose that in a way, I'm already weathered from dealing with age-long conflicts in fandoms over silly things like shipping and liked/disliked characters, and I've just learned that the 'live and let live' is the best way to deal with what you may or may not agree with.

In that sense, I guess that's why it's also difficult for me to see from the perspective of those who want validation for what they like by stepping down or being vocal about their dislike of others. My solution for expressing what I liked was always to create and to be vocal about the love instead of the hate. As strong as negative energy is, it doesn't hold a candle to that of what positive reinforcement can do (at least, in my experience). So I'm always more likely to flourish in a group that builds off of that positive energy as opposed to singling out others or trying to be 'the best'. We're all here for the same basic reason, after all: we want to both express our liking/love for something uncommon and we want to find people to share it with.

Anyway, I don't mind being an odd person out. But I'm also not willing to back off of expressing openly about what I like or am interested in. I have dealt with fandoms that tried to scare me out of making/sharing more of what I like, but I try not to get too discouraged. After all, there ARE others like all of us, and I'm sure a lot of them feel intimidated, especially when they like something rarer within a rare fetish. I want to give something to that group in hopes that more and more will come out of the shells and woodwork and realize that it's okay to be like we are and it's okay to express it.

...I've probably rambled off-topic a few times and I don't even have a sleepy excuse. XD But I appreciate what you've had to say and for giving it a different viewpoint on the matter. I admit not being entirely convinced on the whole, but I see where you're coming from and I don't doubt that some of the others DO feel that way. I just hope that things will get better in terms of accepting one another. I won't expect anymore, but I will still hope.

Have you ever read a history book? :) In my opnioni there's never been a time when people don't come together in groups and insist that their group is the best. It's amazing how often this happens though. Even if you go to an unrelated site like http://boards.4chan.org/s/, which features threads of pictures of pretty women, in every thread about pretty tall women, pretty black women, pretty fat women, pretty muscular women etc., every goddamn time, there is some jerk saying "You guys are terrible, stop liking things that I don't like."

So it's not just you.

Anyway, I agree with you. People should chill out, enjoy what they enjoy, live and let live, even explore things that are new for them.

Yeah, I admit that my rose-tinted glasses blinded me a bit. I took into consideration how long this place had been around plus the fact that we're all sort of 'away from the norm' here, so I thought that would automatically play into helping people be more tolerant of each other.

I know what you mean, though. I see crap that pisses me off on tumblr all the time. And it's not that I thought I was alone in thinking this, per se, just a little bit disheartened.

Good to know that there are some people around who can see it from that point of view, though! There's been enough of the positive side here all in all to keep me coming back and getting more involved.
