Is there actually any argument against incest if it's consensual? It seems to only be "It's taboo and gross" when that's the same argument against homosexuals, bisexuals, transsexuals, etc. And if rape and domestic abuse is already a no-no, then why is it a crime? And if it's a worry about offspring being messed up, do we prevent people with bad genetic diseases or other complications they can transfer to their kid to reproduce? If they're both of legal age and consenting, why punish them?

It depends on whether you mean parent/child or sibling/cousin incest.

The argument against parent/child is that parents have a lot of power in their kids lives (and even if they don’t, there is still a strong “do what your parents say” custom in mainstream culture). It raises consent issues.

The only thing I’ve ever heard of against sibling or cousin incest is that people find it icky.

The Sumatran Tiger is said to be extinct by 2015, with fewer than 300-400 left in the wild due to large-scale habitat loss, poaching, hunting and human-tiger conflict. Other subspecies are said to follow.

Guys im here If you EVER want to talk

ADHD/ADD & feeling overwhelmed

I sometimes get the idea that people have this preconceived notion about what having ADD/ADHD is like. They think that your either the hyper kid full of energy that bounces around and is disruptive or the quiet dreamy one in the corner that doesn’t finish their…

I have ADHD, and let me tell you… This is exactly how it feels like day in and day out unless I take my medication. Without it, I feel like my life is twisting and turning in a thousand different directions. It’s hard to focus and complete tasks, I have a hard time remembering to do things I intended to do, I’ve always been told “you understand the biggest, hardest things, but you screw up on the small details”, and it’s a constant state of wondering if I’m going to take control of my life and my actions, if I really have no control, or if its just all me being over dramatic and at fault…

It’s ridiculous…

But please, please, PLEASE don’t think it’s all horrible. Certain things can be really really great! It makes people like us more creative, intuitive, helps us to think out of the box, and when we really harness the bad, we can actually use it to help us with different tasks!

All in all, I think it’s both a curse and a blessing.

Dear followers,
In light of Robin Wlliams passing, I and I’m sure a number of the other mods, are here to speak with you if you’re battling with any mental disorder.
I’d be willing to give out my personal in order to do so.
Much love,
Tony

I agree with Tony. If you need to talk to someone, our askbox is always open. I’d be willing to give out my personal too.

Here to submit a friend’s artwork for possible commissioners to see, if that’s okay!

Kai’s artwork can be found here: http://sparrowkaiden.tumblr.com/tagged/my-art

He’s a great kid with a lot of potential, not a lot of air time, and a love for animation and drawing. He’s my best friend, and he’s trying to get some extra commissions but doesn’t have the follower count or friends in the right places, so to speak. He specializes in furry art, but does everything and is willing to draw anything from people to animals to scenes from nature. All of Kai’s art is digital, but can be negotiated.

Kai can be found on Weasyl, Skype, Tumblr, and, coming soon, Tentacl!

Financially in trouble, trans artist looking to take commissions!!!! Please check him out and reblog this post, as well as his artwork! c:
