FLASHBACK: Doc Ock

This is one of my first commissioned plushies, almost four years ago, for a friend. Since then, I’ve learned a lot! Mostly not to hot glue all the tricky bits. =p

Doc Ock was about 15” tall with four 14” long tentacles. He’s a handsewn, fleece/felt/suit polyfilled plush with handpainted features.

Commissions are open~!

Outdoor mural, otherwise known as the perk of taking four years of art class. It doesn’t exist anymore, some other kids painted over it (with a really crappy and dull design too), but I’ll always remember it.

It’s not often you get to paint a six-foot-tall spider and pseudo-latin motto on school property.

Old comic for school I kind of still like, despite it’s wonky art. I believe everything is correct, but feel free to correct me, Science Side~

When I’m in a terrible mood, I highly recommend going to options and turning the walk bounce way up. Intsa-cheer-up.

Mason students counter-protest a demonstration by a pro-life group that uses fear tactics in order to demonize abortion.

Seen in front of Fenwick Library 

I do NOT support abortion, just not this tactic. What I mostly dislike about this, is that it gives off the wrong image of pro-life people, and the protests around campus are even more annoying than the display. There is already such strong animosity to anything remotely conservative at Mason, and this just makes people hate, and frankly be extremely mean, to young conservatives at George Mason University. One of the main reasons I tell young conservatives to steer away from the school I love, is the amount of harassment I receive on campus. Again, I don’t support this particular display, but if I even try to have a conversation with the counter-protesters, I am called names, screamed at, and harassed. The display is a wonderful shock factor, and is accurate. It’s just not the way to get a message across, and causes pro-lifers and conservatives around campus a headache. 

Personally, I think if it gets the point across, it gets the job done. I had to watch a documentary last semester about these particular types of displays . The only thing that I do not agree with is the push of religion behind the display, because there are pro-lifers out there who aren’t christian.

The images displayed, as graphic as they may be, are accurate and real images of both growing fetuses as well as aborted one. It’s sad that many people legit think that what they are aborting is just a “clump of cells” this shows them that its so much more than that and that planned parenthood is feeding them lies.

I agree it is accurate and gets the point across. I do believe it does more harm than good for the movement itself. 

I’m curious, what documentary? I would love to check it out!

Unborn in the USA. If you have netflix, they have it on there.

Hold the phone, I’m sorry WHAT?

In what way was this CBER display accurate? It certainly wasn’t factual. Did you even read the signs that claimed there was a link between abortion and breast cancer? That’s been proven a myth*

Did you hear them say say that all condoms have natural holes in them? That the pill is dangerous?* That any means of contraception is pointless and ineffective? * All lies!

Did you hear them claim 90% of what Planned Parenthood is was make you “butcher your baby” while a CPC only wants to help you decide? Despite the fact only 3% of PP even preforms abortions, that 70% of what PP does is provide contraception and contraception education? That PP also offer prenatal care and help with adoption as help options?

Did you hear them claim CPCs are safe? Despite the fact they often actively masquerade as abortion centers, trick women into missing appointments, lack certified staff to develop their free scans, guilt woman, hold women hostage, lie about medical details, give your personal information away to adoption agencies and protesters?* CPCs have the same level of medical certification as a nail saloon.

Did you see those dramatic photos, that on asking who took them, when and where, they can’t provide a legitimate citation? *

And since you mentioned the counter-protesters, I’d LOVE to see where you were standing to “get called names, screamed at, and harassed” because I was there one of the men with the CBER group followed a girl, who wasn’t involved, wasn’t interested, just walking to class, to call her a murder and shout at her until the point she called the campus police on him for harassment. I was there when they called a Jewish girl “worse than Hitler” when she told them that their comparison to the Holocaust was offensive to her. I was there when CBER people stormed over to the counter protesters to scream at them for just being there. To insult counter protesters, standing across from CBER, merely holding signs.

Counter protesters that never said “just a clump of cells”— they called it what it is, a fetus.

It’s not an animosity to conservativeness. It’s animosity to being directly and continuously lied to by this movement. It’s animosity to baseless scare tactics.
