I did something great. It's such a load off my back and I feel so relieved now that it's done. I don't understand why I didn't do it earlier, it was so clear and obvious, how I didn't see it is mystifying...
I added kendallov34 to my blocked list!
It's like she was never there.
I'm assuming that most of the MLxPG fans out there are experiencing the same kind of harassment I am receiving and seeing all around me... I've seen her be rude and obnoxious, seeking out all the Marshall Lee x Prince Gumball art on DA she can find and leaving rude, unprovoked comments against the pairing and the artist. Even when artists and fans of the paring are nothing but kind and understanding, she still lashes back. I'm tired of being harassed because I like a different pairing than her. I'm not a Marshall Lee x Fionna fan, and I probably won't ever be. Fionna is too close to the ages of my younger sisters for me to be able to accept this. She's a minor and shipping her with a legal adult male, no matter the double standards, is something I am morally against. This goes the same for Prince Gumball x Fionna, I don't care how cannon it is, I'm not okay with it. However, this doesn't mean I speak negatively about the pairings I disagree with. Everyone is entitled to their own likes, preferences, and opinions, myself included, but differences between opinions shouldn't drive us apart. We ought to be unified by the fandom, not divided. I've been nothing but courteous and understanding to all of the fans of Adventure Time here on DA, no matter who they ship, whether I support/agree with their paring of choice or not. I comment like a fan when I like the content of the art, and I comment like a fellow artist when I really appreciate an artist's style. I offer polite, constructive criticism when I see something that I like artistically but may need a little tweaking/improvement. But never do I comment purely negatively on the content of another artist's work unless I see contents that infringe on Deviant Art's rules (examples being art theft, and explicit pornography).
I hope that by writing this I can get a message of kindness, courtesy and tolerance out to the artistic community. I'm not trying to tell anyone how to behave on the internet, and I'm only pointing one finger of shame (if you're reading this, chances are it's not pointed at you). That being said, I'd like to foster a feeling of neighborliness amongst all who took the time to read this journal.
Thank you for your time
