my pet theory is that all this happened because some news site thought the sensationalized “rabid homestuck fans doxxed dril” spin would get them more clicks (read: ad revenue) than “homestuck fans find dril’s name in the hiveswap credits by connecting the dots”
So the picture i’m going to post below was apparently posted on the stupid livejournal blog ‘simsecrets’ and I was minding my own business playing Pokemon when my dear friend, @starryfalls, decided to show me this.
Now, some of you, if you bother to read this at all, may recognize some familiar faces. I know I immediately recognized lilsimsie immediately. What that’s not why Hope showed us. She showed me this because the bottom right picture is one she took on her blog… of our simselves. Well, it’s my simself and Aaryn (formally vandeesims). I’m all about equality in every way but don’t bring people’s simselves into it.
Especially when, I don’t know about you guys, but didn’t choose my heritage and I know damn well that Aaryn never asked to be a transgender male. People are always going to complain and if being upset about my simself and a very good friend of mine being used to spread hate loses me my followers… bye then.
Using people’s sims is fine, you’re all going to complain about it either way, but you’re literally hating on several of these people’s simselves. It’s a game and I will never understand the drama.
