Now Playing Tracks

gracekraft:

I wanted to take some time to reflect back on the pieces leading up to “The Birth of Steven.”  The concept and pose used in it is one I have explored several times in my art and elements from each piece culminate in what is now my all-time favorite tribute art.

We Have Each Other
Believe in Steven (comic)
Love Goes On
Rose’s Petals
The Birth of Steven

Because lying to your kids about sex helps nobody. Telling them that sex is “only between mommies and daddies” is a lie that leads to confused, hormone charged teenagers. Telling them that sex is “only something that happens when two people love each other very much” is a lie that causes hormone charged teenagers to confuse “love” with “lust,” or “obsession.” It leads to leaps of logic like, “If I have sex with them, we must be in love.” Or worse: “if I love them, I have to have sex with them.” And how many teenage tragedies are based on that misconception?
