There is no shame in love by BlueRoseArkelle There is no shame in love by BlueRoseArkelle
>v< HAPPY SPIRIT DAY EVERYONE!! :heart:

;w; T-this is a day that is very important to me, as someone who has been through bullying all my life. Luckily for me, romance/sexuality isn't really my personal thing, so I was not bullied for this reason. I was bullied for aesthetic reasons mostly, for being the only girl in school with red hair and for being chubby. In elementary school kids would cut my hair and make fun of me, and they'd hit me on the head with water bottles on the bus rides to school. TvT I have grown to be strong though, and I know that haters gonna' hate and I should not waste my time with people so cruel and intolerant. Regardless of what they may say about me, I know that bullies are the weak ones deep inside.
;w; Things really do get better...you just have to stay positive and believe in yourself and not what other people assume.

TvT B-but anyways, enough about me. The drawing.
;__; I know that Spirit day often talks about acceptance for gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgendered people, but rarely does the topic of more obscure types of love come into the mix.
In case you don't know, I'm a firm believer that love is not defined by age, gender, looks, relationship, or by number and etcetera. Which means that YES, I do support polyamory and NO I do not feel that it is any less of "love" than monogamy. You can love more than one person at one time for different reasons or in different ways. Nothing says that there is one type of love that everyone feels, or that it is exclusive to only one person. It is just how we often think, but it does not mean it is the "right" or "only" way of thinking. Relationships can be more than just sex and procreation which people often forget. A relationship that consists of more than two people who share an extremely close and committed relationship is in my opinion not wrong in any context. Nor do I think it is shameful in the least.

There is no shame in love. Do not let anyone tell you your love is wrong just because it is different.

These three are my OCs, Etzel (left, boy), Shu (middle, boy), and Calliope (right, girl), and yes, they are a trio. ;__; I thought today would be a good idea to share this, if it wasn't obvious before. They are still "children" so their relationship is of course only beginning to bloom, but regardless their trio is based upon so much more than just romance. They are like gears in a clock that when together make it tick just right..... :heart:
;___; I really wanted to draw something more elaborate, but I ran out of time so....yeah. OTL

TvT Happy Spirit Day again.... help spread the love and acceptance to save lives and to better ourselves as people :heart:

aww i love the message behind this one :) and i'm sorry you were bullied like that. I was never actually bullied in elementary school, but i always felt like i somehow didn't belong, so i can kind of understand how you felt there. btw i love all your OCs :) they all have amazing personalities and backround stories :) calliope is my favorite

I love this message of spirit day.
I have been subject to bullying as well so I can understand and feel your pain. It wasn't about sexuality for this reason too. It was for the colour of my skin and being chubby as well ;A;

We have many heartbreaking similarities in regards to that, bullying is such a horrible thing to do to somebody.

I'm glad you have grown stronger, I have too from all the torment I was put through as well ;x; I AGREE, haters gonna hate.

I like what you said about that, I do agree that many people feel that there is only one way to do things or one way to think and that's not the case at all for love, So I really like how you expressed that. I do feel that Monogamy is very different from how I would live my life, however I don't shun it to people that do it??

I've watched Documentaries on it, and those people in those relationships are fine with each other. So why shouldn't we? Unless there hurting each other in very wrong ways that's when it should become a issue.

But someones different way of life, shouldn't be shunned or hated. people OFTEN fear what they don't understand. Not me, I am very understanding of different things around me.

Love is love, it's very different, and in many different shapes and sizes and things. For people to put ONE LABEL on love is just.....wrong just like LABELING anything is not right which people are doing so much more lately, it's actually quite sad, all this labeling going around in efforts to hurt, or justify someones own feelings for something by using hurtful words, or labels to jusify the means.

I agree, THERE IS NO SHAME IN LOVE! Don't let anyone tell you that your love is wrong just because they don't understand, or even try to understand or because it's different.

Our goal is to live as the best good way as possible and promote, love, and helping others, and be as kind as we can to other people, and lead them towards finding that light(spiritual god) in there heart but never to promote hate, or anger, or bigotry.

It's very beautiful your characters I like all your characters together in this picture, I also have a Trio of characters that are bound together by fate.
KEEP up the good WORK!
I always enjoy your works.

;A; Ahh oh no! You were bullied for similar reasons as me too? T~T Aww you must understand that then...! ;__; I just... young people can be so mean. They can be so arrogant and judgmental, and its sad because half the time they are too young and naive to know any better. But so many other young people are hurt because of assumption and judgment, it is just sad that adolescents don't often understand the concept of "differences are a good thing". Some never get it, and continue this type of behavior into adulthood, raising more children to think in the same way. Meanwhile, people like us are hated because of something so trivial as skin color and weight. Of all the things to dislike someone for, these things just seem so petty to me. ;__; I mean, its okay to not like stuff, but that doesn't mean we should behave like animals and attack anything we don't know or like. OTL

TvT And yeah....I just try to spread the love and acceptance, you know? I don't know, i've never believed that love has anything do do with trivial things. Ultimately, love has no definition. It cannot be accurately explained in one definition because it varies so much from person to person and situation to situation. ;v; Love is a beautiful thing, and we as humans should not cut others down for their happiness. That is savage, and primal way of functioning and we should be better than that. ;_; Of course, more "obscure" types of love such as Polyamory, Incest, Homosexuality, of course aren't easy for everyone to accept right away, but its important to relate to people that we should not judge others for things we may not fully comprehend. ;v; Spirit day is a good place to start. Bridges aren't built in a day, but every stone helps pave the way. :heart:

>//v//> Aww, and thank you...!! :heart:
TvT Aww, you have a Trio as well?~ Ah, that is awesome. ;v; I love the concept, and its always such a dynamic type of relationship to see.

Yeah I was bullied for similar reasons e.e; I'm african-american and I was in a predominate caucian school, and they just wanted to bully me because I was meek, quite and chubby when I was younger. Yes young children are quite cruel. Well yeah?....but they kind of do know better? Because some choose to? But not all.

Yeah I agree a lot of young people, are being ostracized for just anything now and it only gets worse because some children aren't being taught to be humble towards others, or not do certain things. Even when some people's children are addressed, like say if a persons kid goes to the school and then talks to the parent of the person that's bullied parent, sometimes even the parent will be ignorant and be like well your kid did this to provoke my son, so you can kind of see where they learned that from? But it could still be many other reasons then that e.e;

Yeah, I will never understand how people carry with this all the way into adulthood and just keep the cycle going. Yeah, man that was...the worst times of my life e.e; If I could go back and talk to my thirteen year old self I'd keep telling myself and hugging myself saying it will be alright it will get better, stand up for yourself.

And things like that.

IT really is petty, when you boil down to it, it really is....OH. I am going to pick on you because your confident in yourself and I want to destory it? Like really?? I understand HURT people hurt people, but still come on?

Yeah I agree e.e eeeeeek.

Yeah me to, I just spread love and acceptance, as long as you don't come to me and try to hurt me, I'm good I love everyone cept for monstrous type people that only do things out of hate, eviliness, and all that other things, but otherwise I'm sweet and kind to everyone. Because ya know golden rule and that's just how I am.

I agree, it does vary from person to person, and that's why I myself accept it in many forms. Love is universal. It really is a beautiful thing as you said, and you can't really put a lid on it, because it's much complex and very deep to even explain.

Yeah, we shouldn't cut others from their happiness, and that's because of people wanting to control everything and control people and wanting to control things as humans.

Yeah that's right Polyamory? Oh, the many wives thing. (Well incest, not in the case of rape or force or any of that. Mutual consent, of incest I'm against rape, forcing, and all of that stuff) but yes if it's incest and it's both mutal and nothing going on wrong and nobody was forced into it, then that's fine. Yeah, I understand that, people may never understand it fully but a lot of people are opening there minds to seeing it and accepting it as that it is, and that's good.

I AGREE! I love that what you said. Bridges aren't built In a day but every stone helps pave the way:heart:

Your welcomeeeeeeeee my dear!
IT IS MAN oxo!:heart: Yessss I do:heart:

You are truly amazing, successful, and strong. I was bullied in elementary too, it made me sensitive and weak till I gained the strength to stand up for myself. Truthfully, I totally was clueless about spirit day but I felt so accepted reading and looking at the works created for the day. Love it ; - ; And btw, I really like the colors you use it reminds me of power :)

The thing I always wonder is why they try to inflict pain onto other? I tried to stay out of other kids way in elementary and when gym came the bullies (which was half my class) deliberately hit me in the face with a ball, or pushed me out of the way, THEN when I got home the bullying didn't end cause two of the bullies knew where I lived and would see me outside, act nice, then talk about the house I lived in with others at school. It sucked and it's like you never do anything wrongly to these people so why do you treat them this way?

Man, I would like to see those bullies see you today. They don't know that you became a talented as hell person XD.

But in all seriousness, I like your way of thinking about Spirit Day. Also, even though it's a day to support anti-bullying, we should be supporting these kinds of things all the time.

TvT Haha...truth be told, i'm sure they would hate me just as much if not more. You'd be surprised...."talent" brings with it a lot of hate. ;__;

TwT Yeah...its all about supporting people and not outcasting them for being different than what is common or perceived as "right". At least for me anyways. Bullying tends to start from fear/hate of things that are different, so its important I think to remind everyone that different does not always mean "wrong" or "bad" and that we shouldn't hurt others for it. ;__; I wish everyone thought like this all the time, but I guess one day out of a year is something.....

Its sad how judgmental people can be, and how quick some are to cut down things that are different like they are some type of disease they don't want to spread.
