I’d like to clarify that I’m not angry or upset with those who haven’t taken kindly to my most recent artistic endeavor (despite being called a sick sack of shit; I’ve honestly been called much worse). 

As an artist, it’s not my within my plausible control to ensure that every single person who ever sees my work is to know my exact intentions. Even with an overly direct caption, I’m sure the images themselves would’ve still been taken at face value by some people.

I don’t do ‘on the nose’ work. I have no qualm or disinterest with artists who work that way, but it’s not how I choose to create. I want my audience to think a little bit. I want my audience to engage with my work and figure out the clues I’ve provided. I think it leads to important, vigorous discussions (of which this experience is absolutely included).

However, I absolutely acknowledge that there is a dark side of a coin to working this way, which is that there WILL be people who will take this as blatant and literal. It’s an unfortunate side effect, and one that I have to assume at least some sort of responsibility for. 

Take care of yourselves. Create loudly or quietly. Create obviously or mysteriously. Always be prepared for someone to disagree, and don’t be angry with said disagreements. Art that starts a conversation is thought-provoking, responsive and, sometimes, at least the slightest bit successful.

Haven’t you ever wanted to feel abnormal?

You are a sick sack of shit. Suicidal feelings, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders, anorexia, bulimia, and compulsions for self-harm—or any other serious medical issue—ARE NOT A FASHION STATEMENT. These are not favorable traits to have, and real people who suffer from these real conditions get treated for shit for it.

Just the fact alone that you have to defend your username underscores the fact you drew this with no compunction whatsoever.

Okay so you’ve kinda missed the point??

I very much agree with what you’re saying; in fact, that was actually the intention of this piece! I’ve noticed that it’s become an internet fad to glamorize disorders, which inspired this mock piece of clearly able, non-suffering, typically attractive girls adorned in a ‘tumblr goth’ aesthetic.

This is satire. It’s in your face and lacking of any subtlety. It’s not meant to endorse medical issues as a fashion statement, but to exaggerate and, in effect, criticize said deplorable act.

Also my explanation for my username is directed towards everyone who looks this blog up with the idea that it’ll be just what I don’t want happening - an endless black and white scroll blog of purging techniques and beautified images of scarred wrists. If you’re against the idea of this url being taken by a body positive, justice-oriented individual, then I’m very sorry for your mind.

If I missed the “joke”—which it isn’t a joke at all—it’s because it’s 1) not funny, and 2) not obvious that it’s a joke.

Satire is supposed to be an obvious joke. A parody. This is the exact same thing way people behave, and you haven’t made it obvious in any way that this image isn’t condoning what you say you’re satirizing. It’s simply showing a snapshot of what is currently a popular thing to do. Indiscernable from popular fashion artwork.

I’m also speechless that you think that anyone should actively desire to have that URL. I must ask, though: how is it body positive to take a username which is a body-harming disorder?

You’ve misquoted me. I didn’t say it was a joke, I said it was “satire. It’s in your face and lacking of any subtlety.” Satire CAN be an obvious joke, but isn’t LIMITED to that. A quick google definition provides:

the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.”

It’s a hyperbolic snapshot of a problematic trend. It may not have been obvious to you, but all of my other (in-person) feedback from this piece of work has included an understanding that this is not at all meant to be taken seriously. Of course there are going to be exceptions in this interpretation (of which you are included), but generally the message I was trying to get across has been accurately received.

I didn’t say that the url should be actively desired. However, I am constantly followed by and/or being messaged from extremely negative eating-disorder blogs asking me to give up the url. Clearly these people are looking it up and wanting to find an enabling environment - which I am refusing to provide.

I also did not contend that the mere act itself was body-positive, but that I myself was a “a body positive, justice-oriented individual”. I adore and celebrate the human body in all it’s colors and forms. I had this idea that perhaps someone who (note: has indeed suffered from some of the satirically fetishized ailments in the piece) was healing and trying to move forward from physical & mental setbacks could claim the domain and keep it from the hands of those who would want to use the url as a dangerously enabling space for self-hate and self-harm.

The title and caption of the piece is so obnoxious that I didn’t think I needed to accompany the visual with an explanatory essay.
