Night Vale & Desert Bluffs
My version of the lovely logos
We went to the party, and, as I figured, some of the guests laughed and made comments. One said to me, “Do you think this is funny? There are kids here. You want them to see this?” Another said, “You want him to be gay?”And I stayed calm. And I explained to them the best I could that there is no correlation between kids cross-dressing and being gay. And if he is gay, it’s not because of anything I did. It’s because he’s gay. And maybe it’s a stage. And maybe it’s not. But either way, I don’t want him to ever feel like he wasn’t able to express himself because his parents didn’t support him. And some understood. And some, trapped by religion or ignorance, gave us the stank face.Plenty of people are supportive. They’ll see my kids — Sydney with her long dirty blonde hair, and Asher with his short dark hair, and say, “I love your daughter’s pixie cut.” When I tell them he’s my son, they smile and say, “I love it.” They also apologize for confusing his gender, but I tell them, “Don’t apologize. He’s in a purple dress with sparkly shoes. How would you know?” I know there are parents who get worked up when you confuse their kids’ gender, but I’m not one of them.I get home before my wife most nights, so I was taking the kids out to walk our dog. They were dressing up in different outfits, my daughter treating Asher like her doll, as she tried various dresses, shoes, and headbands on him. And then Sydney told me she wanted me to wear a dress, too — “Oh my god, it will be so funny.”I said, “No,” but she kept begging. I said, “People will laugh at me.” She said, “If they do, I’ll tell them to go away.” And I couldn’t argue with that, as I squeezed myself into Carrie’s most flexible dress. We walked the dog on our block, and the pleasure my kids took in seeing their dad go out of his comfort zone trumped the humiliation I felt.Carrie pulled up to the house, and I saw her slacked jaw from the end of the street. She laughed. She took a picture. And she told me I better not rip her dress. And then we all went for a pizza.(My Son Wears Dresses And That’s OK With Me | Seth Menachem for xoJane)

RikkaTheCat turned 3 today!
Anyone who remembers that contest I mentioned a month ago? Well, it’s finally here!
Get a chance to win my old prints and bookmarks by entering my contest!
These 38 prints go back as much as 4 years, they’re worth about 260$, and most of them won’t be reprinted ever again, so this is the last chance to get them FOR FREE! (if you don’t count your own hard-work of course)
The contest is going to be like the last contest I held!
I have 5 main OC’s, and their character sheets can be found here. Your job is to draw whoever you want to, as many as you want to, in whichever way you want to draw them.
The theme could be space cowboys, gangsters, Star Trek, the 60’s, you name it! Just keep the characters in-character as much as you can, but play around with the universe and setting all you want to!
· All art forms are allowed! (Art digital/traditional, sculpting, cosplay, fanfiction etc)
· nsfw, pornography and anything that goes in this category, is not allowed. Tasteful nudity is!
· To enter the contest, submit your piece to this blog, with a link to the full resolution as well, and I will publish it! If you don’t want your art published, just tell me and I’ll keep the submission hidden!
There will be 3 prices!
1st prize. 19 prints (one of each)
2nd prize. 12 prints (one of what is left)
3rd prize. 6 prints (what remains)
1 RANDOM PRIZE: There will be 1 print left which can’t be given to the winners, as it would be a duplicate of what they already got, so this single print will be given out to a random person and chosen by a randomizer!
Julialost and I will be the judges of this contest, but Julia will the one having the final say in who wins as she will be the most objective, considering it’s my oc’s.
The art will be judged mostly on creativity and how you capture these characters, and less on actual craft and skill!
Deadline is 30th of July and judging will take place in august!
