This is probably my favorite Kanker Sisters fan art for many reasons

That’s right. I don’t want to draw people of colour. Why? I don’t find them aesthetically pleasing. And no, that doesn’t make me racist. I have nothing against people of colour. I don’t have a problem with them. Some of my best friends are people of colour, and I don’t think any less of them for that.
I just don’t find poc attractive. Kinda like I don’t find big noses or buck teeth attractive. Or curly hair, or bushy eyebrows, or super thin lips, or certain face shapes. Or a lot of Freckles. Or really huge butts. Or ginormous boobs.
I like to draw things that I find attractive or interesting, so that’s what I’ll draw. If it doesn’t fit into what I think is attractive or interesting, I tend not to draw it.
And I don’t have to. So all you “BAH YOU DON’T DRAW POC! YOU RACIST!” people need to stfu. People can draw whatever the fuck they want, and you can’t force them to draw something they don’t want to. They might be racist, they might not. But it doesn’t matter. We all have free will.

You don’t get to decide if your actions are racist or not. You’re biased towards your own opinion because well… you are you. Limiting your art work to only white people isn’t hurting my feelings, it’s hurting your art style. Did you have to write that you find me and people that look like me unattractive? Nope. Did you have to tell us that some of your friends are people of color (thereby clearing you of any racist connotations, amirite?) Probs not. Did anyone force you to draw out of your comfort zone at any time in your life? Actually impossible. You are stunting your growth as an artist and being incredibly close-minded. Not calling you a racist though because holy shit, that just might be the end of the world for you.
People do have free will. You have the ability, desire and freedom to draw whatever you want.
And others have the right to call you out on your bullshit.

My sister has a bearded dragon and they typically eat crickets, but they’ll eat mice occasionally as well. She bought this mouse a week ago and the first day, the bearded dragon put the mouse in his mouth and the mouse squeaked so he spit it out… and he’s never tried to eat it again! Now they’re friends and the mouse sleeps on his back and head and even moved some wood chips over to where the bearded dragon sleeps so he would have a bed too! It’s so cute.
I’m going to die.
