A.S.F.U. Unit 002 by JSA-Arts

This piece speaks of an odd dichotomy of vulnerability and a powerful nature that has lashed out. Be it in defense or in a moment of we...

As soon as I saw this one, I thought of Boston Dynamic's Petman robot. The level of articulation and prowess, how closely it mimicked t...

Quote of the week-

“Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being. With freedom comes responsibility. For the person who is unwilling to grow up, the person who does not want to carry is own weight, this is a frightening prospect.” - Eleanor Roosevelt

How, in your opinion, should the topic of sexual assault (In general) be handled in fiction, no matter the medium? 

48%
10 deviants said Keep it classy. When using it in a story, keep the focus less on the act and more on the aftermath. Avoid showing the act if at all possible.
29%
6 deviants said All the detail, all the emotional torment, in order to make a heavy impact and make the gravity of the situation ingrained in the reader.
14%
3 deviants said We've got enough rape and sexual assault in the real world. We don't need it in our stories.
10%
2 deviants said Other. (Comments!)
0%
No deviants said If it is involved, don't focus on the aftermath. It's only needed to shock the audience and demonstrate the character is vulnerable.
0%
No deviants said Rape scenes should be heard, not seen. Keep it entirely past-tense and don't bring it up often since victims of it don't tend to talk about it after the fact.

Do you guys remember the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS?

Essentially, someone of prominence would accept a certain amount of money to be doused in ice water and send the money to a charity for ALS research.

This is the kind of thing  that I like and can get behind because it's actually DOING something.

Whenever someone says they're 'raising awareness' and doesn't actually *do* something about what they're talking about, that really gets on my nerve.

It's one thing for a young person (Under 18 or so) to do it since they don't have a lot of resources other than their voice, artwork or effort to throw around. But for the progressives who only talk about it to 'raise awareness' and pat themselves on the back as if they've accomplished something offend me because there are people out there throwing in their all in order to make good causes a reality who make it happen AND raise awareness too.

However, they are admittedly harmless. Like a fart. They foul up the air for a moment, then dissipate without much impact.

What Green Peace did however, in Nazca, Peru, is *beyond* harmful.



They, in their infinite wisdom, saw fit to descend upon this sacred site, ignoring the laws that protect these places, and set up fluorescent yellow lines of text.

Why is this such a big deal? The Nazca Lines are a collection of hundreds of geoglyphs that were made by indigenous people over 1,500 years ago in the Pampas of Jumana in the Nazca desert. The designs include animals, people, shapes, and natural elements like flowers. Some of these designs are quite large, stretching 300 meters (990 feet) long. They were designed with little more than rope and wooden stakes and can only be viewed in their entirety from above, such as from the nearby foothills.

Nazca has always been one of my favorite mysterious sites... A place where people created pictures meant only to be seen by those far above, and did so with much aplomb and precision.

But now the hummingbird site is ruined for hundreds of years...



Because of these morons.

Now, some of my detractors may say 'Why Zucca, you magnificent stud, aren't you just 'raising awareness' like you were complaining about earlier?'

Oh no, dear readers... I am putting my money where my mouth is and sending e-mails to congress asking them to join in the condemnation of these hacks and sending e-mails to Green Peace itself asking if they would kindly refrain from destroying ancient treasures and holy sites.

Go forth and do the very same.

There are ways to draw attention to important issues and there are ways not to.

 Well, I was more or less thinking about what might happen if Aries was hired to deal with one of my characters, who had been branded a "terrorist," and found out that he was completely justified in what he was doing. I honestly love moral conflict, and I was wondering what she might do... when I decided to ask about commissions.

It would depend on what he was doing. One thing she has absolutely no forgiveness of is the killing of children or of parents of young children.
