Packs consisting of 50 sheets of Fabriano cold press paper usually run for nearly 500 dollars but, yesterday, Amazon - for some reason unknown to me - was selling them for $5.68 (The original listing has been deleted, but thankfully I took screenshots!). Someone out there noticed this in the Internet art community and from there it exploded as artists across the United States rushed to buy what hopefully would be enough paper to last the rest of their careers for only six dollars. (One artist friend mentioned to me that he bought $120 worth of the six dollar paper or 1000 sheets.)
Today the price has been fixed and the original listing removed but the paper is currently the #1 bestseller in Arts, Crafts and Sewing. It’s yet to be determined if my order along with the thousands of other artist’s orders will be shipped as the orders are being fulfilled not by Amazon but Blick Art Materials.
i will kinkshame until the day i die as long as kinks involve heavy and critical changes to your brain chemistry over a long duration of time
especially when those kinks involve manipulation of abuse victims
especially when those kinks involve pedophilia and rape…
And here is where I step in and tell you everything you’re saying is bullshit. First of all, “kinks involve heavy and critical changes to your brain chemistry over a long duration of time" Fucking hell it does you soggy biscuit. I’ve got a degree in neuroscience and guess what? EVERYTHING changes your brain chemistry, it’s a side effect of LIVING. Critical changes? Less than being bullied in school, less than drugs or drinking, less than obesity or food addiction. So why is it okay to feed your kids fried chicken 5 times a week, and not do something CONSENSUAL between adults?
Have you ever heard the term SAFE, SANE and CONSENSUAL? That is what all members of the BDSM community abide by. It is the law. It is the religion. And anyone who violates these rules are shunned, marginalized, and not part of this community. Anything that is not consensual and safe has no place in the community, it is not a kink, it’s a crime, like doing anything to another person without consent is a crime. I like kinks, people like kinks, but we have safewords, we have a culture. So take your url that cannot be found, and shove it up to where the sun doesn’t shine. If I want to be whipped and beaten, I go and find someone to whip and beat me. If you’ve been abused, then please please DON’T get involved in the scene. And people should be educated to have the good sense to control themselves instead of shaming the people who enjoy it and practice it safely.
