Have you ever had one of those days where you wanted to beat the everliving hell out of someone in hopes that a clue-by-four to the head will make them understand something, just a tiny, tiny bit? I'm having one of those days. There's this thread on DoA, posted by a guy who's either the most obtuse person on the planet or is just trolling for the lulz. Either way, he's fucking annoying and I want to tell him to piss off, or go fuck himself, or something equally not sunshine-and-puppies. HE's got this notion about BJDs-that they'r a really really good investment becasue the industry is *totally going to tank in a couple years and his three (yes, folks, count 'em, three) dolls are somehow going to be worth a mint because they have factory faceups and are in mint condition. ....I'll let you get your laughter under control before I continue, shall I?

...Right, now we've all got hold of ourselves, here's the thread:
http://www.denofangels.com/forums/showthread.php?436102-Trying-to-Understand-the-BJD-Industry

It seems, more or less, that he's mainly whinging because Iplehouse had the nerve to shut down for a couple months when Americans (and we must all bow to TEH MIGHT OF THE 'MURICAN NATION, don'tchaknow) have money to spend, and also because he got a pair of option feet from Elfdoll that weren't the exact same shade as his doll's body. My opinion? He's either a troll or a fukking moron. He's also arrogant in the extreme, completely unable to grok a single thing we're saying, and an admitted opportunist who's into these dolls because he thinks he'll make ton of money off them, as they're "contemporary Asian art". LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL He comes in knowing bugger-all about the hobby, the people buying these dolls, why we buy them, the properties of resin and everything else, and then essentially declares himself an expert on art and investments and whatever other bollox he's spouting. Uhm. What.

I've been trying to keep my mouth shut and just bask in the glory of the fuckery that is that thread, because he's got even the brilliant and usually silver-tongued JennyNemesis, among others, utterly gobsmacked. It's absolutely fantastic, really, the level of stupidity this dude is showing. He just does. not. understand. The hobby, the people in it, or how it/they work/think. I'm still waiting for Godwin's Law to be invoked-it isn't truly epic fuckery until someone mentions Nazis! XD

For your convenience, I present a few choice posts by him:
In which the wank begins and he starts on his way to missing the point
The OP )

In which the point of the hobby and the replies being given is passed by on his way to wherever *his* point is going.
First response to replies )

Response to a couple of other posts )
Awesome, so now some of us are too young and stupid to demand our 'rights', I guess?

Yet more point missing and misunderstanding/ignorance )

And his most recent post, wherein he's STILL not getting it )

The level on which he fails/is missing the point/is displaying colossal stupidity is mind-boggling.


And my response to his latest post, because I couldn't help myself any longer:
MY post, which is as polite and coherent as I could manage )


So, what do you good folks think?

So, yeah, not too happy at the moment. There are pretty much two main things annying me right now. One of them is a much bigger issue than the other. First, Thinkgeek oversold Cthulu in Love,so I and a bunch of other people are not getting the bottles we ordered. Sucks, but not that uge a deal. I can get it elsewhere (yay secondhand bottles!) and at least they gave refunds. The other is a slightly bigger deal-I STILL don't have my popodoll body. The seller said she was shipping on the 13th, but I have not heard a single bloody word from her since the 10th or so.
ETA: She got in contact. Doll will be shipped soon.



In non-bitching news, I think I may be making a couple more hoodies for Sakai (or whoever, maybe the twins). I need to go looking for some suitable material and zippers, though.

ETA OMG Plz stop me I now know how to thread/use my sewing machine and volksusa has separating zippers! Also I found a place with a metric fuckton of fabrics including animal prints and doll-sized check and OMG YOU GAIZ PLZ STOP MEEEE! I have the feeling I may end up making a stack of, like, zebra print hoodies and shit.

*facepalm*

I need to learn to stay out of the discussion forums on DoA. Never have I seen such shining examples of stupidity and ignorance, as well as unlimited amounts of bawww. I made the mistake of checking out the "Girls Loving Girls" thread and stumbled across this gem posted by a member who shall remain nameless. Go look, you'll see who it is.

They said:
I would think because the vast majority of people on here are ladies, and most of them are hetero.

Personally I destest girl+girl couples, I'm quite Gynophobic (hate of women) so I've never noticed that there was a lack of it. Cant miss what you're not looking for, you know?

To pull it off, I reccomend nothing sexual. Little pecks on the cheek, holding hands, and tears, could come off as sweet and heart warming and whatnot. But (And this is just my opinion) anything past that: making, 'touching', and sex arnt all that romantic between woman, like it is between two men (what with the pain, and all that- that comes with the deed).



LOL WHUT? The ignorant fifteen year old fanpeople like this are why all yaoi fans are seen as stupid ignorant teenagers who have no idea what gay men are actually like.

There was a good response to this person by autumnrain:
Wow, [name deleted], nothing like a bit of lesbophobic misogyny to make my day, with a bit of ignorance about gay men thrown in. Male/male sex doesn't have to be painful - female/female sex doesn't have to be pain free. Look up fisting. And physical pain isn't needed for romance or to "pull it off", for heaven's sake. If you're a high school student whose fantasy life evolves around yaoi, though, it's not surprising that you don't have a very realistic or adult idea of gay sex, let alone sex in general. Just don't make inane prescriptions about what the grownups need to do to "pull off" depictions of lesbianism.


My own thoughts on this person's post?
I..just....what? M/M gay couples are fantastic but F/F ones aren't? Yay selective homophobia!:roll:
Also, what autumnrain said. Sex between two men doesn't have to hurt, and sex between two women isn't always painless. and how does physical pain=romance? Do they think the same thing about straight couples? If it's some sort of "This hurts but I'm letting him do it anyway because I love him" idea, well, that's bullshit, sorry to inform you, fellow DoAer. I know you're only fifteen, but you have a seriously fucked up idea of gay relationships and the mechanics of sex. I can honestly say that at that age, I knew exactly how it worked and was as annoyed by the lack of lube in most works as I am now. (Srsly, mangaka? Spit is not going to be effective lubricant, nor is blood. and FFS, have you never heard of stretching that shit out before sex? How often have *you* had anal sex and just let your partner shove it in without at least lube? and if you have, how many times have you been to a hospital to get stitched up afterward?)

See, this is why I understand why people get pissed off at all the yaoi and unrealistic gay male doll couples out there. You get people like this who apparently have never heard of lube or preparation and think that gay men just go round sticking their dicks in without warning or something. doesn't work that way, folks. And look, I like yaoi as much as the next girl, but the one thing that irritates the hell out of me is the whole rape-is-love thing. Nonononono. Relationships do not work that way, fictional or not. :/


In unrelated news, OMG I HAS A SHIPPING NOTICE! *flail* My doll is on his way home! I had no idea it was going to be this fast, I was expecting at least another week or two of waiting. I am also waiting for my manga, which shipped yesterday and my new doll hands.

What the fuck is the deal with people worrying about what other people are doing with their dolls? What's the deal with them complaining about what other people do with their dolls, and about them posting threads to whine about what they don't like about other people doing with their dolls? I ask because I've just seen another of those threads on DoA that amounts to "bitch here about about other people's customisations". The list includes, of all things, *pupilless eyes*. apparently those are some horrible travesty of dollydom along with bad faceups and scarring.
'K, I understand not wanting to see certain things, I understand not liking bad faceups and shit like that. But why is it people feel the need to publicly baww about it to the entirety of the site? No-one really cares that you don't like pubic hair or third eyes or nipple rings, okay? Bitching about it just makes you all sound like assholes. Why the bloody fuck is it your business, really? That's why the "That does NOT belong on a doll" thread annoys me. Sure, I get sick of all the blowing sunshine up everbody's arses sometimes, but really, do we *need* one or more threads about this shit?
I have to ask, because maybe one of you guys gets it more than I do, but what the bleeding hell is with the attiude of "These are ART! Anything less than perfection on them is an INSULT TO THEM AND THEIR CREATOR!" or the "All dorries must be pretty and cute and perfect and no-one wants to see your ugly scarred/pierced/less-than-perfectly-modded doll, you horrible owner!" I will admit to occasionally cringeing or saying that I feel sorry for X doll, but I don't baww about it (much). I do not get why people seem to feel that the doll of someone who lives five thousand miles away is somehow affecting their collection to the point that they have to whine about it to people who don't actually care, or why people feel the need to be petty and mean about something so stupid. We are not sodding grade schoolers here, so why the first grade attitude? "Nyahnyah, your dollie is ugly! *sticks tongue out*"
What. The. Fuck?
I know the same could be said about me reading this thread but it needs to be said for the millionth time: If you don't llike it, don't look at it. You don't have to look at Person X's gore mod, or person Y's be-merkined doll, or even Person Z's doll with pupilless eyes. Your browser has this nifty thing called a BACK button; you press it and it takes you to the previous page: problem solved. Well, except for that one where you're whining about what other people are doing with their toys.
