I'm talking to you, perverts

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 14, 2014, 5:15 PM
Facebook . Instagram . Twitter . FAQ


I think it's finally time I address one of the things I hate the most about deviantART, perverts.
Actually, to be fair, it's not just limited to deviantART, but rather the internet as a whole, where if you vaguely resemble a female, these guys will be on you like a magnet.

I've been on deviantART ever since I was 14 and I, like many of my friends on here, have had my fair share of internet perverts. I won't get into legalities, but I've seen and heard many absurd things. I've had men blatantly ask me for photos of my tits- and that's only the beginning.

Now, I do not speak on behalf of my entire gender, I am speaking only for myself. I am not your average dumb bitch hungry for a shallow compliment and cheap attention.

For any internet perverts that might be reading this, let me tell you a few things about myself.
  • I attend one of the top research universities in the entire world.
  • At this prestigious university, I am double majoring in chemistry and biology.
  • I am very good at what I do.
  • In fact, I was good enough to land an organic chemistry teaching assistant position.
  • Which is a huge deal.
  • I'm aiming to get into a PhD program to obtain my doctorate, ultimately perusing a career as a researcher in organic chemistry.

Internet pervs, I imagine that you are something along the lines of a sad older man sitting at his computer hoping for even a slight wiggle. If I look in your "favorites" section, I will probably find numerous macro vagina shots.

Guys, the internet is 110% porn, don't make yourselves so desperately obvious (especially on a site like this).

So, internet perverts, the next time you decide to treat me as nothing more than a pair of tits, please remember that I am smarter than you. I guarantee you that what I'm doing is more efficient, meaningful, and worthwhile than whatever it is you're doing with your free hand. In fact, compared to me, you'd be the piece of meat.

Though a stale on, probably.

Do not forget your place in this world. My existence serves more purpose than yours ever can, so don't you dare talk down to me.

For anyone else reading this, please forgive me for not remaining humble, as that is what I believe in and try to practice. But I feel being direct was necessary to getting to the point.

Unfortunately people act this way because at one point or another some kind of positive reaction came from it.  It's just sad to see ladies with such little respect for themselves do things that attract this kind of attention.

You're seriously *stunning*, Twig, don't mind the pervs... with your kind of aesthetics, do what you will, you will attract a lot of men... unfortunately some tend to be this way... you just have to filter people out... I had my fair share of stalkers too back in the day... and they were 'men' which is way fucking creepier...

I don't necessarily think that what a person majors in defines ones intelligence. I know a lot of people that got into the most fantastic of universities for sciences, but lack common sense among other things. I've also had my family look down on me many times for switching from a psychology major at a reputable university in my city, to pursue art as a career instead. I have never had a family member, except for my mom, tell mow how proud they are of what I'm doing and my accomplishments. I just can't compete with my cousins (who are all in medical school currently). That said, I will always respect anyone in sciences because it was something I could never stick with and I personally do think it takes a very smart person to understand and succeed in that field. There's just so much to know and so much detail. I guess what I was trying to get at is that there are all different kinds of intelligence.

With that aside, I absolutely love you and your confidence. I definitely need to start treating myself the same way you do. Its refreshing to read a lot of what you write and I respect a lot of your opinions. I hope that you stop getting harassed like that. It shouldn't be something anyone has to put up with. And congrats again on the teaching assistant position. That's very exciting and I hope everything keeps moving forward for you. :dance:

Beautifully written!! I've been on dA for 4 years total now (since I was 14, also), and I've managed to fly under the radar of most people completely... A double-edged sword. I get less feedback and impact with my uploads, but I don't attract any unwanted attention and control just about every interaction I have here. It's kinda fantastic, and to be honest I wouldn't be the most well-known person on dA if it meant getting a bunch of unsolicited hits from guys with over-active hormones.

Lately I've been so busy with other things that I've rarely even been on dA, but your things have been the main things that I actually go through and read. Your pictures are beautiful, and the things that you write and post are even more inspiring!

And I completely disagree with the person earlier - your uploaded pictures aren't "asking for it", and the comment he left IS "barking up that tree". And not in a classy or respectful way imho.


Thank you again, for today's inspirational reading, I'm glad to have found you here! And regarding the last inspirational reading... and I think I'll definitely test the waters with double-majoring, thanks to your kind inspiration :)

First, thank you! For you to take time out of your busy day to look at my work is extremely humbling. Thank you. :heart:

And, that guy. He (almost) falls into the category of people I'm referring to in my journal. He's left some comments that have made me raise my eyebrows, and he's requested that I webcam with him. And other than that reply I gave him on this journal, I've never talked to him, so funny that he was saying something along the lines of "if you're talking to a girl and it looks like she's feeling it, it's not wrong to ask". We've never actually talked, haha. He just really creeps me out.

About your potential double major, I will definitely be cheering you on! :dummy: :hug:
(By the way, hopefully this isn't weird, but if you've got any questions about the double major/ college, feel free to message me. My own personal college experience has been a roller coaster and I've got a lot to say about that, haha.)

Of course!!

It definitely seemed like it from the posts. . . And how do you tell if someones "feeling it" through text? This is why we need a sarcasm font ;) Just as well, at least you're steering clear of people that creep you out, all that drama is especially unnecessary around your birthday :) By the way... happy belated birthday!


Thank you so much, I really appreciate the support ... especially going into something so scary! :) And rather honestly, I'm very into stories and such going-ons that if you decide you want to warn/rant me about anything, please feel free!

To be honest, I'm not sure what would entail someone "feeling it" over the internet, but I can tell you that it's certainly not ignoring everything that's person's ever said. :giggle:

I bet it's a double edged sword. I see some women taking pics of themselves, yes tasteful ones, but regardless they get more views and favs if they are good looking. Not super artistic IMO. Not saying this is you and I generally do not look for porn on DA. Like you said 110% of the net is already porn so don't need DA for that. Sucks that you and other women have had to put up with harassment.

No, my gallery does not warrant the blatant request of naked photos. And if you think my gallery (especially the example you gave) is "sexually charged", that's probably because of you and not me.
And, of course it's not necessary to be a low life to have hormones. But like I said, I'm not speaking on behalf of my gender, nor am I trying to group together all types of perverts. I'm talking about specific situations that I have personally dealt with here. If you're an older man and you have enough time to waste on deviantART, chances are, you're not doing anything very productive with your life. So you shouldn't be talking down to me.

Furthermore, I'm finding difficult to take what you have to say seriously since, if I recall your username, you've (creepily) asked me to have a webcam session with you.

Speaking for myself i didn't actually register you did modeling. I generally only look at your regular photography. So today i learned something new. And i know a lot of people who do modeling male and female who are treated like meat. It is very disappointing.

Hahahahaahahahah, Im dying of laughter. Everyone at a certain point is ''perverted'' for an unknown period of time. Human emotions change very quickly, the thing here however is that some show it and some just ignore it burrying it deep and getting over the emotion.
Who knows, someone can bluntly ask for some tit-pics on a day and the next day be working humbly on a planet-size matter.
No need to get angry over it, everyone has their own purpose. And none is greater than the other. ^^
But seriously now, give some credits to the guy who blatantly asked for the tits photos. At least he was honest about his purpose ^^

(I hope you take this the way it's meant - I'm actually hoping to inspire a little thoughtful, polite debate.)

I'm not sure that you needed to respond to denigrating stereotyping with denigrating stereotyping of your own.  I happen to be an older male.  No, I don't have a single macro vagina shot in my favourites, although I do have tasteful nudes there and in fact produce my own.  I hate the fact that the older I get, the more people feel the need to check that I'm not some kind of perv.  Statistically, women are more likely to suffer abuse from under 40 year old males that they know. 

Don't get me wrong, I share your protest that you are subjected to stupid, ill-informed and frankly rude comments.  It's not fair and only displays the stupidity of those who do it. 

All women are not .... anything.  We are talking about around 50% of the world's population.  The fact they share a gender hardly makes them all the same at anything else personality wise.  Similarly, all older men are not perverts and we do not run around asking little girls to take their clothes off.   

Final rant - being a dumb bitch who craves compliments doesn't make one useless or any less deserving of respect.  One could argue it ranks them higher in the scales of women who need to be cared for and kept safe from the perverts because they are more vulnerable. 

I hope that inspires some thoughts from one and all.

I read your comment and I understand what you're trying to say.

Here's the thing, I like to be a little realistic about the world we live in. I've heard women say things along the lines of, "I should be able to walk down the road naked have no man stare at me."
Uh. Honey. Get your head out of your ass because if you walked down the street naked, men (and women) will stare and will think it's okay to stare because you chose to walk down the street naked.

And this is why I choose to conduct myself a certain way in public. Is it "right" that there's a need to do this? Probably not. But, let's please try to be realistic. People will judge you based on the way you choose to conduct yourself. If you choose to look cheap, people will assume you're cheap- whether or not you actually are.

About the "dumb bitch craving compliments" part, I should have been a little clear. I'm a nature photographer who uploads the occasional self-portrait. And there there are certain selfies, the very raunchy ones from a girl who is clearly just looking for a quick compliment. I know (and everyone else) have seem them on deviantART, but there's an obvious difference between mine and those.
Do people like that deserve less respect? Probably not. But again, if you choose to portray yourself a certain way, people will assume you are that way and I can't argue with them for thinking that.
