I am over it, and I am back to "fairly content."  Looks like it took exactly one month.  But I am not coming back to Deviantart.  I have done away with my entire gallery and am much happier for it.  Sorry all, but I am done with this place - and many other places online - save for looking at pretty artworks on my watchlist (though that word still makes the bile rise in my throat).  I am too busy and happy in the real world to deal with such pettiness, racism, and fake and self-centered people that I keep coming into contact with in these electronic spaces.

Thank you to those who were not petty, racist, or fake and self-centered.  I appreciate you looking at my art and and hope you enjoyed what I posted on this tiny little corner of the webs.

BE EXCELLENT TO EACH OTHER.

I have removed the offending thread and all comments associated with it, if it makes you happy.

Why would that make me happy? Have you also removed the offending thoughts from your head? As someone who was very prejudiced in high school against a group of people, I'm telling you now that you need to go out and meet and speak to some muslims, especially ones from other countries. You'll find they're exactly like any other human beings on this planet - some are fucked up and most are psychologically normal and just trying to get by without people trying to screw up their lives because of racism.

If I was entirely off-course about the news comments, fine I was wrong in that regard and I actually felt bad about it until I got near the end of your rant. You are a very close-minded and ethnocentric individual – I have NEVER before read such hate-filled garbage from anyone I’ve known personally. I am not exaggerating. Just when I think I’ve heard all the bullshit I’ll ever hear from people, someone like you pops up out of nowhere and shocks me.

OH, if you find me shocking ... I would tell you that likely, many people feel similarly, they are just much more polite about their opinions.

And no, I shall not remove the offensive thoughts from my head.

I in fact *HAVE* known a decent number of middle easterners. They have further impressed upon me that if they aren't the fucked up ones, they have been fucked up by living near the fucked up ones.

For all the news watching and reading you must do, your head is in a HOLE if you think I am an odd minority who blatantly hates a large group of people for their actions. You must understand, like them *I* am human too. If you can care for them, but hate and be shocked at me, I think you should reconsider.

It should also be easy to understand that my opinion is very divided. I maintain subjective and objective opinions on many issues, the war / the middle east being one of many. Subjectively, I HATE them. Objectively however, I voted for Obama because I wanted to see the war ended in whatever way necessary, but he is continuing it. I understand that there are very good reasons for modern war not being waged the way old war was [where you fight to win, not to be politically correct] ... and I would not see America "bomb them to hell", despite the fact that it's a thought that makes me feel better when I feel most hateful. Mainly, completely destroying a country [despite that they deserve it] would not stand with American ideals [which I think this country sometimes no longer cares about...]

I voted for Obama for other reasons too though. Mainly, whether or not global warming is a big issue [i know its very heavily debated], I think that America should take a bigger stand on lowering carbon emissions. Obama was suggesting I think a 17% cut in emissions. I don't think the economy would be that hurt, I think America would rise to the challenge of cleaner energy, if forced. Of course, the senate would have to also pass a global agreement like that, which is unlikely, I think.

Anyway. You, I think, do not use your life effectively. You have such passion on these subjects, but you work a job that has nothing to do with them. You shouldn't waste your passion writing rants to racists like me, you should be organizing a service for the benefit of those you think need it most. You have enough care and enough smarts to make a difference. You may have to work on controlling your temper.

The more you type the more sad and despicable you sound. Have fun wallowing in your self-pity and blaming people on the other side of the world for your problems. I am done with you now.

I saw your work at Otakon, but I just now remembered that I had one of your business cards. I love your black and white work, it's really good.

If my recent message seemed harsh, I'm sorry. Not meant to be hating on you, just hating on most anything else. =___=;

I don't feel like there's anything I can do to improve any situation. ;__; I don't know what to do.
