  • Minor rant+ PSA, but I hate how people claiming to be wolf advocates are against any and all pet wolves just because they started wild (or are all still wild according to WSWS) A supporter of theirs even admit to trying to make her best friend abandon her wolf! I mean, how do you think dogs came to be? They're domesticated wolves! Going off of that logic, dogs are not pets because they're a subspecies of wolf and we should steal all dogs from loving homes, dump them back into the wild with ill-developed survival skills and leave them for dead just because of where they came from. Actual wolf advocates would educate on the subject and give recommendations on whether or not they think you should have a wolf, not lambast all who have exotic pets. And of course, there's those few anti-wolves who claim that all wolves are inherently dangerous as if humans can't be just as dangerous.

    But the point is, not everyone who has a pet wolf just stole them from the wild and locked them up in their homes. That's what someone who is cruel would do, like most circuses. There are indigenous communities with humane breeders who regularly have domesticated wolves because it's their culture and they passed it on to other cultures. Dogs were tamed by feeding them and offering them love and a shelter. The very first dog breed of all time was a wolf. Outdated arguments like these are honestly why I lost faith in groups like Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary who have even openly admitted to stealing pets from loving homes out of the assumption that they were just ripped out of the wild and honestly why I no longer support them. I wonder if they're against pet cats too just because they also descended from a wild animal?

    Here's what I think. If any of you are planning to have a pet wolf, just make sure you're in a state or province where it's legal to do so and ALWAYS take responsibility for your wolf; at the very least make sure they have plenty of roaming space, preferably forested areas, take them out often, especially be sure you're financially capable of taking care of them such as feeding them and making sure they have some place to go to the bathroom, give them lots of love and attention, and while I don't think spaying or neutering of wolves is legal anywhere, I would recommend humane alternatives instead, such as prescription sterilization medicine which is always temporary or reversible, and NO MILLS! Please, dear God. Those places are definitely cruel and do ALL animals a MAJOR disservice as they are known to force incestuous breeding and killings.

    I'm going to be fully inactive here on November as well as on all social media, minus Thanksgiving day, since bad things typically always happen to me this montth. Cold weather tends to make me pretty tired anyway.

    I hope that you will be well and safe! I look forward to seeing you return! :)

    Apparently E621 is allowing "bad people" on their site. (PM for context, won't explain publicly.)

    Well, it's definitely going against their own rules which says that cub stuff isn't allowed on their site. They're acting like YouTube staff at this point.

    Well, I almost lost my animation. Thank God for Celsys putting a backup feature in Clip Studio Paint because I worked hard on that and it's just the sketch.

    No background this time because for some reason it won't let me add one 😢

    While reminiscing in the past I decided to moan about how strict FurAffinity’s maturity filter is compared to the filters of pre-Eclipse DeviantArt.

    Art simply marked as mature with just a bit of blood violence but nothing graphic like disemboweling is blocked from view for minors, even if it’s reposted on another site, say YouTube or something, meaning they probably already saw it anyway which I honestly would do away with those kind of filters and make it so the least violent artwork is viewable to all and leave the more "traumatizing" stuff blocked for view to adults only. I mean, FurAffinity is a 13+ site after all so 13+ art shouldn’t be blocked.

    I say pre-Eclipse DeviantArt because post-Eclipse DA’s filters are actually very strict now to the point that an account is required to view any mature content on their site, no matter how old you are.

    I’m only saying this because when I actually was 13, I drew way worse stuff than this. There was full on blood and gore with actual gutting, my vent art for example, though most of it wasn’t posted since my followers were also young and apparently venting your anger, sadness, or happiness in a healthy way such as expressing it through art and sharing it because you feel proud of your work apparently makes you an “attention seeker”, according to certain people which, it’s really a shame that people think that. (Even if it is a cry for help, that says more about you than the person venting, tbh.) I think I vaguely remember drawing some kind of prey animal laying dead on the ground, having had their neck bitten into by one of my characters, but I digress...

    But yeah, I’d pretty much just say that; the least offensive art should be viewable to younger audiences since most people that young already draw it anyway, be it just some sparkle-dog OC bleeding from their eyes or an extremely detailed picture of a character bleeding out significantly with their small intestine hanging out of their belly. But other than that, it can’t be as bad as how FA asks for your government issued state ID to prove that you’re old enough to look at the more spicy side of their art galleries which I honestly think is a bit intrusive to one's privacy and especially when the amount of time that passed by since their account was mature locked should be enough. I mean, at least sites like Weasyl remove the mature lock on your account automatically once your 18th birthday comes. That could lead to someone being doxed which was rumored to have happened to an artist on their site but no one really knows if it's proven or not. Still though, that's how I probably would have fixed FurAffinity and other sites with very strict filters.

    Looks like I can join! It's open.

    I'm not really new here, but I decided to come back to FLO. I'll still be on FA, but my stance towards the ban on feral smut is more neutral.

    I'll probably share my art and music here since I'm always creating new stuff.
