IM FUXIN PISSED! DA has officially OFFENDED me!

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 1, 2010, 1:57 AM


So I log in and look at the peculiar new avatar on my page and think I got hacked... then I realize it is a FUCKING TWILIGHT banner!

AND I cant figure out how to fucking disable the diseased rotting feculent heap of steaming offal that it is. It OFFENDS ME!

YES, OFFENDS ME!

WHY, because I HATE all things TWILIGHT with a raging passion! I have very very good reasons for hating twilight, it is a symbol of ALL that I stand against! A derivitive story that is poorly written and that promotes to an entire generation of girls to be weak and helpless and defining themselves by the men they are with.... has society REALLY gone this far backward? Whatever happened to GIRL POWER?  Whatever happened to girls who were BETTER and MORE BADASS than the boys? You know like CATWOMAN who didnt wait for a man to rescue her, she fucking wrecked anyone who fucked with her and lived life HER WAY, completely AMMORAL (NOT "IMMORAL" because she HAD her own moality, just not the same construct as everyone elses, she didnt LACK morals, they just didnt apply to her!) UNTAMED and UNAFRAID and NOT defined by the man she was with, becuase she KICKED HIS ASS TOO... AND he LOVED her more for it I may add! What happened to those girls, surely I cant be the last?

Or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you know tiny little blonde girl who destroyed all things big and bad, including boys whose hearts she broke even if her own heart was always in the right place, because she was MORE than they were!  GOOD FOR HER, be ALL you can be, and you are a person ACTUAL AND WHOLE,you dont need a guy to "Complete you" because you are already COMPLETE to begin with.

Or XENA: Warrior Princess... she wasnt a fucking lesbian, she just didnt care who she loved. But SHE was girl power, that was the Amazonian woman right there, in a world where women were as strong and often stronger and MORE POWERFUL than the guys. Where did these women go? WHY have they faded from view?

WHY are we left with a frail WHINEY teenager who is worried she is too old and used up at 18, and constantly tries to commit suicide for attention, and feels like she doesnt exist without her boyfriend. WHY is this the face of an entire generation? Is this really progress? It fucking pisses me off, I think even whiney Aly Mcbeal said it best "YOUR A WOMAN; BE A MAN ABOUT IT!" (you know, suck it up, stop whining and DEAL WITH IT! YOU ARE NOT FUCKING HELPLESS, HELP YOUR SELF DAMN IT!)

OOOOH it pisses me off to see that the icon that is intended to REPRESENT MY identity has been replaced with a stupid animation of TWILIGHT and proclaiming me to be a part of "Team EDWARD"... ummm BULLSHIT, NO NO NO NOOOOOOO FUCK NO A THOUSAND DIFFERENT KINDS OF NO! I am NOT a part of anything that represents TEAM anything twilight... burn that shit! NAPALM THE HELL OUT OF IT, it doesnt just need to die, it NEEDS TO BE KILLED! SUFFERING must be inflicted upon it, and after its slow and tormented death, it needs to have acts of voodoo and witchcraft enacted to resurect its zombie ass so it can be KILLED YET AGAIN! and again an again and again!


I FUCKING HATE TWILIGHT!
IF... and its a big IF here, you want to associate ME and MY IDENTITY with a current pop culture franchise... I want to have RESIDENT EVIL TEAM ALICE! Give me the super psychic Zombie-slaying Ninja bitch queen! She represents something I can be proud to be associated with.

Take this damn twilight promotional avatar and shove it up your ass whoever forced this crap on me! FUCK YOU!

It OFFENDS ME to hijack my account and use it to promote something I am so firmly and passionately AGAINST! THAT is an invasion of my privacy, it is a personal attack on my character and belief systems, and if any of this upsets you GOOD! You upset me you fucking jackass, you DO NOT speak FOR me, so stop misrepresenting me! I have all kinds of other very choice words for you, in several languages, but thank you you lame piece of shit for ruining my fucking day. Shove a stick of dynamite up your rectum and light the fuse... because that is what it feels like you have JUST tried to do to me intelectually and personally and it is fucking insulting!

  • Listening to: GODSMACK
  • Reading: MINDS... belonging to crazy people!
  • Watching: My sanity vacate me...
  • Playing: ...I WISH I was playing right now!
  • Eating: sacchertorte
  • Drinking: POG (Passion Orange Guava)

Hey, I read your point below

And still, I do believe the point of using the Twilight Avatars was because just about EVERYONE hates it. How many people did you find admitting to liking it during April fools day? Little in comparison to all the seething hatred, because some of the ones that actually enjoy it don't want to be verbally beaten by the literature's equivalent of the KKK.
And no, I don't like Twilight, just like everyone else.

I was being nice and pollitically correct by trying not to assume the absolute worst. But I do strongly suspect you are right, which just makes the "Joke" even LESS funny and more offensive than it already was.

I find it ironic that if you hit the DA top news stories, which I dont often do, you will notice they are big on trying to promote comunity bonding. (Little sub groups an cliques, particiption and promotion activities (Llama badges, Deviant of the month, etc) but in the midst of all this "community buiding and bonding" they would be so careless and deliberately seek to offend and upset (and in the process ALIENATE) such a large percentage of their members. *shakes head* its just sad

Yeah, I suppose it wouldn't be funny to some.
Well, they didn't actually hack into people's accounts, invading everyone's privacy at least. DA has done the same method as last year with the Mudkip icons. That method is some kind of code that just covers avatars and doesn't take the original avatars away from DA's users. I was expecting the change for a day because of last year.. and personally, I found it funny and little sad that not everyone was on the same level of attitude during April Fools. Then again..can't please everyone.
I'm sure that the DA staff members are really smart people, just with a different sense of humor than some.

Oh gosh... don't lay it on so thick, please!

I think that Twilight is a bunch of bull too and I too don't understand what the infatuation with the story is (how can it compare to Ann Rice novels, for example?)...

Now, do you truly believe that a stupid movie like Twilight is going to transform all teenagers into mindless, spineless women with no confidence in themselves? Do you think that if all movies were about warrior princesses and vampire slayer women, that the teenagers who have a lack of confidence will actually change their attitudes? Come on!

All of that set aside, it was just a JOKE. They chose a whole series of ridiculous shows/people as avatars. Twilight is no better then the legend of the seeker (have you ever seen the show, I laughed as hard as when I saw Twilight!).

If you can't wind down and laugh at the world's stupidity from time to time, you'll become very senile very quickly.

Okay before I even begin here, I am not lit up over it anylonger, but I AM NOT going to just forget about it either. YES it was stupid joke, but I still believe in RESPONSIBILITY and ACCOUNTABILITY. Read the discussion that continued in the comments section, I believe all the relivant points are covered.

I DO truly believe that twiligt is propaganda that promotes this sor of idiotic weak minded behavior in young girls, espeically with it being as outrageously popular as it is. It PROMOTES all I believe is wrong with the direction our society is taking, so YES it is offensive to me. Am I lit up over it anylonger, NO, but am I offended by it, YES. To me it is like promoting cancer as a solution for global overpopulation... its just NOT funny. I do not believe actions are disposable, and if you ont STAND for what you believe you may as wel just roll over and die.

Do I believe Xena, Buffy, Alice in Resident Evil, and Catwoman were the solutions to it, NO... I grew up with them, and the overwhelming number of weak minded women from my generation is proof that it is not a solution... but I DO believe it was step in the right direction. If little girls are going to grow up thinking they can be as good as the boys, they need strong role models. And well, I grew up with them as my role models... and I like the direction my life has taken because of it.

I do have a very well developed sense of humor (browse my gallery and read some of my artist notes... I love to laugh more than most people, which anyone who knows me will loudly attest to) but again, I do NOT believe it was a funny joke, and it WAS offensive and UPSETTING to some, and that is when you know the joke is NOT FUNNY anylonger and anyone with MANNERS would appologise. It wasnt intended to be offensive, I get it, but it was... say your sorry and move on. But what offends me and upsets me MORE is that they (DA admins and comments like yours) are dismissing it and not taking responsibility for the faux pas. No apology, just a dismissive "its no big deal" and I disagree, I believe MANNERS MATTER, and if you dont stand up for that point, dont be surprised when you get told YOU dont matter. So I do believe this is an issue, is their lack of accountability.

THIS is a point I am so admiate on because I am a PREMIUM MEMBER, which means I PAY for their services. In short I am supporting them, so it really upsets me that I am putting my money toward helping fund a place that dismisses wasting my time and upsetting me and my friends (fellow deviants) as if it was no big deal and we dont matter. I am a single mother of 11 month old twins who works 3 jobs (and is currently dealing with legal investigations due to my being wrongfully terminated two months ago for turning a guy in for sexual harassment, but since the guy who was groping me and telling me to shake my ass for him any time I walked by him, was related to management they fired me... despite the fact that I was the seventh or eightth girl he did that sortof thing to)... my time, patience and energy are somewhat limited.

I certainly do not appriciate having them WASTED by a being forced to manditorily particpate in a joke I did not find humorous AT ALL. IF I couldve disabled it, this would be a non issue, but I spent half an hour trying to figure out how t change my avitar that day and reset every one of my settings trying to get myself UN-hacked... and did not find out it was a joke until the next day. That isnt funny that kind of frustration (which was shared by several other deviants who also forgot it was the first of april... and I shoul also mention that IN MY TIME ZONE it was actually NOT even april first yet when it all went wanky on me) So NO I dont think it is just a simple "its a joke, get over it" issue. And I DO feel at the very least a public apology is in order (to make a gesture of aknowledgement to take responsibility for upsetting people who were NOT amused by the prank) I also think this Apology should be in EVERYONE's hot topics on their message page, so that we dont have to go FIND it (because I dont have the time or inclination to SEARCH DA for it), it finds us.

I AM over it, and I am NOT just throwing a tantrum like my children do, I am moving on. BUT I also WILL NOT support a community that does not value my participation or the feelings of its members, so I am just not going to ever purchase premium services or DA products any longer. My participation in this community is going to be the basic free one from now on and I will only be here for the frends I have made here. Im not stomping my feet and storming off, I am simply not giving them my money or support anylonger. I feel that gesture on my part is the best way to REACT to their lack of value of my partcipation. Its the mature and reasonable thing to do.

So late to the party but... I agree with all!!! Since when did April Fools become an opportunity to be a total asshole & get away with it? What a pathetic attempt at comedy. Poorly conceived, even worse on the execution.

Dialog of those involved: DUDE we should totally twilightigagafy everyone's identity!!! It will be awesome, everyone will hate us for a whole day!!
Me: .....Where's the funny part of this again???

I talked some shit on the news thread, which I don't normally do because I don't condone rampant negativity, but DA needed to be called out for this. Some people, I'm assuming they can't read, thought I was completely out of line with my statement.... this was my response...

"I draw a fine line between using a national holiday to play a funny joke, or using it as an excuse to cause mental/emotional anguish en mass; that's the kind of thing jerks do. Regardless of any real damage, it seems unfair to me to laugh at people who were purposely caused to be upset... they probably won't find it funny once. It makes me wonder why we have to have so little respect for each other that we can rationalize public humiliation just because it's "april fools" (april assholes as I like to think of it).... To me, April Fools only works properly if all parties involved can laugh about it at the end. Anyone who felt made fun of, since they were deliberately goaded into overreacting, certainly won't find it amusing."

Okay I'm done. Rant disengage.

Exactly my point, and why (if you read some of my replies to this ongoing dialogue of comments that seems to be happening) I feel a PUBLIC APOLOGY is in order. Much like the Llama badge announcement in our messages, it needs to be something that finds you and NOT something you have to dig to find.

WHY? Because it is a gesture ADMITTING that they screwed up, and upset people. YES, it was just a prank, but the point is that it was not a very funny, or well recieved on. I wouldnt be so upset if a) there was some way to TURN THE DAMN THING OFF. My time is at a premium, it has value to me, and I WASTED almost an hour trying to change my Avitar. The bottom line is, participaion should NOT have been MANDITORY, there should have been an "April Fools day" opt out button! and B) there seems to be a complete disegard for the feelings of the members by the staff here. A public apology would be the smallest gesture, but they seem UNWILLNG to take responsibility for themselves and in the process are showing a COMPLETE DISREGARD for the members of this community who, like me, were upset by this. TO my mind, what they did was comperable to making jokes about disabilitie and diseases... its in poor taste ALWAYS. You certainly dont see banners on websites PROMOTING CANCER, which to me is what this was.

Im a big girl, and it is done with... no use crying over spilled milk, but for crying out loud, if you SPILLED the milk (like they did) get a towel and clean it up, dont just leave it sitting there and walk away saying "not my problem" (which is in my opinion what they are doing) I pay for my premium services... and Im simply NOT going to pay them anylonger. Action equals REaction, and Im not going to stomp my feet and throw a tantrum any more than I already have, Im just going to stop paying to play... I DONT have to SUPPORT them or pay them to say that IM not very important to them at all. If Im so unimportant, then Im not going to pay any longer. If enough PREMIUM members did this, they would realize they drove away business.

But thts the end of it for me... until there is some gestue taking responsibility for this, Im not paying anymore. Simple as that

I too lost MY FUCKING MIND when I saw that crap- I fell for this prank hook, line and sinker.
I wrote off emails to DA that I had been hacked....i am so very lame.

I did LOL- but then I stated F-bombing again cause I HATE TWILIGHT. We all know only Anne Rice vamps are any good- TEAM LESTAT!!!

But its the weird appeal of Twilight to teens and pre-teens...its kinda gross that a girl would love a sparkly dude. I sometimes test DGamer chat rooms for Disney DS games and that is pretty much all the girls talk about on there...'im a vampire/goth chick' So I tell them I am a zombie/mummy/punk girl...

LOL I am glad Im not alone! It just hit my bitch button... not a funny joke to me at all. I actually liked Claudia and Akasha best, but I also have a special fondness of Maharet and Mekare (lol and you may have noticed I named the Dairy goat Unicorn sketchies that!). Im such a feminist Amazon LOL

I dont normaly use much english profainity, but it just lit me up. I agree, Anne Rice's Vamps were among the best. Another was, I dont remember who wrote it, but it as the diary of a vampire "Straud von Zorovitch" or something like that. I remember an ex of mine gave it to me and I devoured that book. It would be interesting to go back and re-read now, because Im such a different person now than i was back then... it would be interesting to see if it is still a good story, or if it was one of those teenage things. LOL

The thing about Twiligh that upsets me the most is that it is so popular with the kiddies, but there is NO depth to it, no history or tradition, it is simply the most shallow and ultimately EMPTY view of it. It just is a subtle way of encouraging them to become equally vapid and EMPTY themselves.

I think Akasha said it best to Lestat in Queen of the damned after she slaughtered an entire island's population "They believed in NOTHING... Now they ARE nothing!" And maybe Im terrible for beliving this, but she is right, it is no big loss or tragedy to loose a bunch of people who are ultimately without value. If you dont believe IN SOMETHING, have YOUR OWN values and OPINIONS then at the end of the day your pretty useless and if that is the case then what is the point?

I mean if you are UNDECIDED about what you believe in, and your testing out new things, trying them on and seeing what fits, that is a different matter. I mean in that case you ARE making an effort to DEFINE the boudaries of your identity. But if your NOT actively seeking the answers to the big questions, and you dont have your own values or thoughts or opinions, then you dont even exist. And if you give that up willingly, I just cant imagine how pathetic and SAD an existence that would be.

Anyway to me, twilight is PROPAGANDA that is promoting that weak and empty way of thinking, low self esteem, DE-valuing women (and havent we fought long and hard to establish the value of women, and STILL have a very long way to go before we get there? I mean why backslide on purpose?) grrrrr.... it just upsets me that so many people are buying into it because the actors are attractve. THEY ARENT THAT HOT!

I just embrace that I am an AMAZON WARRIOR WOMAN, Im proud of it! I just get sick of fighting, and of never finding any REAL MEN who can handle strong women, because they seem to WANT the weak and helpless ones who are constantly in distress and need rescuing. *insert eye roll here*

AND that is before I even attack the PEDIFILE aspect of it. I mean Edward is ultimately a dirty old man, going after underage girls who dont know any better. AND JACOB the werewolf decides that, upon seeing Bella and Edwards daughter AS AN INFANT that she will become his wife! EEEEWWW!!!! How is that NOT gross or creepy? (Yes, I read the books, if that spoils anything... well OOOPS) I mean it is so many different kinds of WRONG that I dont even know where to begin about it. I mean and this is what this generaion is idolizng.... it upsets and worries me!

Twilight IS big fucking Bullshit. I am so sorry you were beaten with a Twilight Avatar on this absolutely not funny "Joke-Day" by DA. Me, at least, I only had to deal with that "Lady gaga" which pissed me off enough, because indeed, ones Avatar is part of the identity and we DO care about it.
If, as it was in your case, you had even to wear an avatar showing what you really hate, it was indeed an offense.

Your objections against Twilight are so true. It's backward, tacky, and incarnates all I hate, too. So thanks for your great rant!

I love the rational maturity your utilizing there, and as much as I would love to join you with it... Im just not ready for that on THIS particular issue.

Public apology would be an act of contrition on their part. It says "yes, we made a mistake, please forgive us" rather than just taking the "well you arent important enough to pay attention to... we will do whatever we like because we run this place and all its members are our property, they will take what give them and like it"

AS A PAYING PREMIUM MEMBER, I feel that if I am paying them, such as I am, they have a greater responsibility to me than if I was just a free user. Because it is a service I am paying for. I am not throwing my money at them so that they can INSULT and OFFEND me. Yes, it was practial joke, and I am sure it INTENDED no harm, but the fact is they were WRONG, they made a bad call. They need to OWN UP to it, take responsibility, and make some gesture to AKNOWLEDGE that they did so. I dont care if they are hanging their heads in shame (which I strongly doubt is happening) I want them to take responsilty for the fact that they INSULTED members of their community. It IS ultimately important because WITHOUT it they are sending them message that we just arent that important. THAT actually does MEAN something... which makes it important. And THEY WILL likely pull that shit again next aprl fools day, with some different subject they are promoting, again regardless of who it pisses off.

I dont want an ECLIPSE banner next year...
I DO NOT PROMOTE or SUPPORT anything twilight related. I do not endorse it, and it does NOT represent me or my values or my art. I actually firmly oppose it, very outspokenly. Anyway it DOES mean somethng, and I am most likely never purchasing any DA related items or sevices ever again due to this. I wont SUPPORT something that doesnt value my participation, membrship, or respect my boundaries. AS A PAYING MEMBER it really is insulting.

Hmmmm...I can really see your point since you are a paying member. It does seem rather wrong when you put it into that light. I don't pay myself but if I did and they suddenly changed something that I put my time/money into I would be pretty upset.

Even though I use Da just for fun (and to talk to friends I have on other sites) I wasn't happy about the change's they made.

And when I think of the fact I could have been stuck with the Lady Gaga icon...-shudders- I can see why you would be so pissed. Maybe they should have to compensate for the paying members that they offended (like yourself).

It was a LAME joke on their part and I only hope they don't pull this crap again next year. I actually spent about 20 minutes near tears thinking my computer had a virus and was going to crash at any given moment!

Which would have been the end of owning a computer for me btw. ^_^; So yeah they effed up in more then one way with their idiotic prank.

Judging my the number of journals that popped up similar to mine in my watch list, AND the response my own journal has been getting, Id say there are quite a few people who feel very similar to the way I do about the matter. Like I said; they could sove it easily enough... they (DA admins) just seem unwilling to be held accountable or responsible.

Well put. :clap: Couldn't agree more on every point. They even changed our signatures during that horrid time! All of my accounts got sparkled on...:( I couldn't bear to be here yesterday, too traumatizing. I've tried to console myself with this thought line:

Much as when South Park tried to redefine the meaning of 'gay' to refer to noisy rude bikers, the author of Twilight seems to be trying to subtly do much the same with 'vampire.' I like cows, they can be very cute, and they make great steaks and hamburgers, but I'm not going to f*ck one or marry it. Now any time I hear of bestiality I'll be thinking of sparkles...those disgusting animal humping vampires! :lol:

Im EXCITED to see what your testing yeilds! Slay as many of them as possible in the name of "Testing scientific theory" LOL

Of course IF it backfires and speeds their multiplication, lest we learn from the myth of the Hydra, we will need a plan B.

I don't mind it... Nobody is going to accuse you of being a twilight fan, because everyone got one. Everything will be back to normal tomorrow. I'm positive a majority of dA is against twilight as well, the best thing to do is laugh about it and have fun looking at all the different icons and signatures.

If it was a GOOD prank, Id be down for it... but this one pisses me off. I mean of all subjects, seriously, but the real pisser is that I cant shut the damn thing off! Pranks are all well and good, when they are in the right context, this is NOT one of those times, for fux sake even BARNEY the purple dinosaur (who I Also hate) would've been funnier. Fucking twilight, just GRRRR... NOT a good joke.

twilight is so gay ( no offense to those that are homosexual ) ...
but it's a dA prank , it lasts for 1 day , and then goes away.
I was very pissed off about this last year myself , to think that
that had EVERYONE sporting around a " so I herd u liek mudkips "
crap EVERYWHERE it was most annoying ..
but I tell ya what.. I rather have pokemon then fucking twilight.
(I'm stuck with jacob grr) atleast it looks cooler then some of
the other things I've seen..

and this year , not only did they mess with the avatar ..
but the signature as well!

I completey forgot it was April fools day!

Still even having said that, and last years Mudkips... well I actually LIKE pokemon (its a long story), But fucking twilight? I swear the F bomb hasnt dropped out of my mouth so freely in a very long time (and considering some of the things that have happened to me recently, that is really saying somehting!) I just HATE that franchise and all it stands for (eventhough it really doesnt stand foranything, it promotes shit I cant stand!) Hell I hate BARNEY as well, but even a barney avatar would've been funnier... this is just fucking offensive.

NOT a good joke.


They may as well have put up a photo of a starving orphan in Ethiopia and said "feed the homeless to the hungry" or some middle eastern woman being stoned to death for showing her ankles and said "know your place bitch"... this is just as offensive to me as that (because really, that is about what Bella represents, the needy powerless little cry-buffy victim du jour without a functioning brain in her skull... and SHE is who every little girl wants to be right now! *gags*). Fucking twilight!

I am a total Vampire lover .. and I hired out
Twilight because I wanted to see if it was worthy
what it really was was a waste of my $2 and a
waste of my time.
I was so disappointed to think that they had
sparkling vampires that walked around on a cloudy
day without going POOF from the suns UV rays ..
and then to top it all off .. the weak little wussy
didn't even bite her! omg.. epic FAIL
so lame :no:

I agree .. I hate barney too , along with dora
but they would of been better

I actually read the damn books, and hate myself for it. I admit I did it because everyone else was, and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about... I still dont get it. The books are poorly written, the main character is the LEAST developed of all of them (she just whines, sulks, whines, and is EASILY one of the most CO-DEPENDANT characters Ive ever read outside of psychological case-studies, the whole thing is so vapid and shallow it literally twisted my stomache. I wanted to bash her face against pavement until there was excessive ammounts of blood... then the Jasper creature could finnish her off! *Laughs maniacally*) And then there were the VAMPIRES, they took them and everything dangerous and cool about them, and then neutered them! I mean they are freaking walking disco balls, but instead of going to vegas and utilizing this skill to keep the party going on and on and on... they also sulk and dress victorian and then have their own silly mafian that really serves no purpose what so ever other than to live in their own privte Disney Land and romp about like morbid children with "who are supa-coo and day know Kung fu!" (what the crazy hell!!! Why is it they always automatically know kung fu? Even the werewolves, is it programmed into their supernatural transformation process?) can you tell I just saw that movie back dynomite LOL

[quote]freaking walking disco balls[/quote] :rofl:

I don't know ... violence is tops in movies , but
surly you'd think of something better then kung fu ..
eh ..

I'm glad I never read the books , I'm disappointed
that I even wasted my time watching the first movie
I refuse to watch the second ...

neutered , more like ass raped them of everything
cool about them and turned them into " freaking walking disco balls " :rofl:

LOL well, it fits doent it! }

The first time I saw the sparkle effect I actually said out loud "OF course, that is why vampires are so popular at rave parties! Every party needs one!" LOL you had to hear the sarcastic tone it was delivered in also the guy I was with just burst out laughing.
