Patchwork Gourd by Waitingforyoualways
Patchwork Gourd
Yet another patchwork Gourd. Gotta admit I go through periods were I get obcessed with patchwork. I even end up sharpying the effect all over my arms.
Golden Sun Silver Tree Gourd by Waitingforyoualways
Golden Sun Silver Tree Gourd
Knowing that I loved to use the golden ink tube for details, my mother gifted me some silver and bronze. As soon as I got them I set out to test them out, only to be utterly disappointed: they were glue-based, prone to clot and not as thin nor shiny as I had hoped for. Not one to give up on a project, I did the best I could and attempted to create the imagery of a golden sun, with large silver trees bearing bronze fruits.
Mosaic Gourd by Waitingforyoualways
Mosaic Gourd
Yet another gourd, cleaned, polished and painted. This one ended up resembling ceramics or even mosaic.
Scaled Gourd by Waitingforyoualways
Scaled Gourd
A failed attempt at creating a coiled effect. Still, I managed to salvage it into this pleasing glass-like effect. I apologise for the shitty picture quality, I didn't have my usual camera with me.
    Modern society struggles for equality and acceptance of all minorities, be it ethnic, sexual preferences, or simply gender. And while it is a noble and necessary cause, they way they go about it just makes things all much worst. How you ask? Very simple:Granting special privileges to minorities is an act of discrimination in itself. Society today seems to think that in order to achieve equal rights, one must treat minorities differently, granting them more legal space than the one normally afforded, thus opening way for a reverse discrimination, where the minority attacks the majority, using their "special status" as an excuse.

    I'm not saying normal discrimination doesn't exist, or that we shouldn't change the way we treat minorities, we still need to go through some drastic changes in our pursuit for a perfect world, but the way we are dealing with the issue is like gifting a ton of toys and candy to a child you just slapped, of course they are going to get spoiled, and remind you of that slap each time they need anything.

    This sort of reverse discrimination isn't all that rare, and even some members of the minorities complain that their kind push them into a stereotypical behaviour in order to fit in. For example, I know of a homosexual man that is oppressed by his homosexual friends because he refuses to dress or act flamboyant, He doesn't want to be a gay man, he just wants to be a man that happens to be gay, but this form of thought lead him to be branded as "acting straight", whatever that means. And he isn't alone in his plight either, women that actually love to be stay at home mom's are ridiculed by their pears, and black people are mocked by their ghetto counterparts for "surrendering to the white man". So you see, its not that they all act that way, they are pushed by the more fanatic members of their community, much like a deranged religion.

    One of the most fanatic"equal rights" fighters are feminist, and while some of them escape this extreme line of thought, the unfortunate majority is irate against men as a whole. They claim them want to be treated equally, having the same rights as men, fighting against "unfair body standards". what they forget while doing so, is the misogynistic way they treat men. They complain men ridicule heavy women, but they in turn ridicule short men. You can easily loose weight, it is impossible to gain height. I understand that some men treated you wrongly in the past, and while those individuals deserve to be punished, not all of us are like that. You must also understand, not all of you are beautiful, at least not to everyone, the same way we (men) can't be beautiful for everyone. Everyone has different standards of beauty, from chubby curvy women, to petite slim girls, beauty is possible in all body types, but not everyone is beautiful in them. the exception to this is of course, extreme body types, no one is beautiful in an obese, anorectic or muscle-freak body, no one.

    So just to end my rantly rant, discrimination does exist, and while you should fight against it, don't use it as a crutch for your own flaws. Stop and think for a moment, maybe people don't hate you because of your choices of because of what you are, maybe they hate you because of WHO you are.

Blegh, comments are appreciated if anyone even ever reads this thing. Sorry for any mistakes you find in the wall of text above.
