No no, this isn't a call to support it but rather a discussion of why people have such a huge rage-face over the idea of supporting Cushy Pen.
For those that don't know, Cushy Pen is an art website where artists like Carotte, MifMaf and now my roommate, RoninKagashi are having their art displayed exclusively on the site and members who wanna see it pay a monthly fee for that sort of thing (i.e., it's like a lot of other porn sites you'd pay money for).
Now, despite the fact that it's -just- getting started, it's still nice to see that there art is good enough to have people pay to see it on a regular basis. And yet, I'm seeing so many people turn into Complainey McDouchebags over how this is such an awful thing.
Hell, I saw one person actually said that Ronin should just get a fucking job and make art in her spare time for them. Apart from that sounding incredibly selfish, there's also the fact that Cushy Pen IS a job. It has an Employer, Mif Maf. She gets paid a share of the profits, i.e. a salary. And she provides a service by putting her images up there. That's a job if I've ever heard of one.
So seriously, why the fuck do people have such a huge problem with this? Is it really just because we're asking them to pay a little to fap to their artwork, or is it something more?
