Small chipmunk rant omg-- don't read.

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 1, 2013, 7:56 AM


Okay so
we all know that they're a bunch of Chipette OC's running around. We all know a lot of them are completely Mary-Sues, being 'perfect' in every way possible by being extremely attractive, with a bunch of curves in the hips and overly-sized breasts, being extremely flirtatious, having a few (or way more) kids, having long blonde glossy hair, being 'sweet' and 'caring,' having a bunch of guys chasing her around-- yeah you get it.
Then.. we've got the people who call them sluts and whores. And before you know it, the creator gets all defensive and denies that their character isn't a slut.

A lot of people don't quite understand what the definition of slut and whore means. A slut is someone who wears showy clothing, flirts with everyone, is overly sexual, has a soda bottle or vase-like body shape, is a Mary-Sue, and sleeps with a ton of guys... at least this is what I've picked up over the last couple of years. If your character is living up to these facts, then I'm sorry to say that you're character is a slut, unless its just all a big showy act. If that's what's going around about your character, then you've honestly brought it onto yourself and you have to fix it. People judge off first impression, and if its not good, your character will be judged harshly in the fandom. They may not even look slutty- they just may have that personality.
YES people do spread rumors.
YES a lot of the times they are false.
BUT if it's clearly shown your character is sleezy, then you should be expecting people to say these kinds of things about your OC because you've asked for it.
Give your character a good reputation; one you'd want to have onto yourself. Don't give them a bad one.
They're reputation is yours and you need to respect that.

I have nothing against nudity pictures or sexual pictures-- its fine with me, as long as its marked with a warning or something., But if your character is dressed in like, stripper clothing then like... of course that's what's gonna go around.

It just gets old to see people complaining over things like this when people are stating the obvious- if you're character really isn't a slut, do something about it rather than making journals after journals complaining about how bad your reputation is getting and how your OC is or isn't a slut.
We're all responsible for our own reputation, and once we break it, we've got to fix it. Most of the time, its nobody else's fault but yours. So respect it, yourself, and your character.


 
///lol done
I prefer nobody to comment.. I just needed to get this out.
But if you'd like to have a friendly discussion with your own point-of-view, then I'll gladly converse.

    omfg Peopla have really taken the Chipmunk fandom way too far.
    The only reason why my characters have large breasts and strangely curvy body shapes is because that's just the way I draw females. Even if I try to draw small boobs, they come out extremely large sdsksfbs
    I just hate it.

Aaahhh I don't have anything against boobs or anything, since its just natural for girls, but it just kinda irks me when people make chipmunks have them especially large to the point they're like, tightly pressed and need to burst-- ew D;

Well, the slut definition is pretty alright. But a whore is usually referring to one who sells their body, I think??? Which, idk, maybe those sick chipmunk roleplayers do that too I don't even. Honestly, there are some that are okay to act in a flirty way, but they're CHIPMUNKS. If they act flirty it should be kind of cute. Not stripper clothing, let me force myself on you, flirting. If you're going to make a flirty chipmunk character, please, just make it a kind of cutesy one. Nobody wants to see a drawing of your chipette completely nude with some random person's character you probably just commented on their page saying "*Insert Chipette name here*: Hey wanna go out?" with like a kajillion babies.

Haha, yes...there are quite a few good RPers out there..you've just got to look real hard for them. I try to stay away from all those...others. All of these people who have slutty OCs are usually just trying to get attention, because they can't seem to get it anywhere else. :U I don't believe it's entirely their fault, though...a lot of people are influenced by the other people around them. I'm SURE that we've all seen sluts or whores walking around out in public...there are plenty at my school, I can tell you.

All of my female OCs are ones who are usually insecure..they don't like wearing slutty clothes. They prefer the baggy jeans and hoodies. They don't think they're beautiful. So, I don't have this problem. Well, maybe with Jordy a little...but she's not slutty.. e.e

Yeah, I see what you mean there.

It's fine to have beautiful characters, but I just find it disturbing when people make it seem like they have to wear certain clothing in order to be beautiful or wear make-up or any of that jazz-
