I'm a member of a site called gothblessyou.com. It seems that a picture I posted has caused some hostility, specifically in other so-called "women" who believe my picture (non-pornographic) is "unfit" for posting because of it's provocative nature. I have had no arguments from the men, mind you, who have countlessly complemented me.

These so-called "women" dissapprove of my use of make-up and the affectionate pose, possibly because they feel intimidated. Their argument is that my appearance is degrading. (Which it most certainly is not!)

I am a Satanic Witch. To not be vain would be sin, for it would be to waste such implements of power which are rightfully, by birth, my own. A woman who is complete in mind and spirit can use her feminine assets to tempt and sway and control. Where is the degradation in being in control? No, we should not judge one another, beautiful Satanic Witches of the forum. We should instead take pride in that Satanic blood which courses through each one of us alike and empowers us with the tools of sex and attraction.

These "women" of who I spoke are incomplete, for they lack knowledge and ability to use their natural gifts to empower themselves. They are not even worth answering to, because the weakness in their nature; the same weakness which sprung forth insecurity and jealousy, has made them invaluable and made their opinions worthless. The only purpose they serve is to entertain us with their stupidity. They point out their foolishness and show us women (us TRUE women) how ridiculously we wear the coat of envy.

Use those gifts of femininity to your advantage, Witches! You are stong, you are powerful, and you are full of Satanic beauty. You are descendant of the ineffably powerful King of Hell from who the roots of both pleasure and desire extend.

If you've got it, flaunt it.

Ms. Ava Jinx made an excellent post some time ago about this exact phenomenon, entitled "Why women hate me". Women who are exceptionally beautiful (yourself included ) are very often loathed by their female peers and mostly find friends in men.
You're not going to let us all sit here and wonder what the picture looks like, are you?

Well, it's not really lude, it's just a sexy little kiss aimed at the camera, wearing the same makeup as in my profile pic (01/13/04). They just thought the pose was too provocative and "degrading to women," which is BS code for an expression of jealousy and insecurity.

Your eyelashes scare me, but hey, look at my profile pic and my other pictures around here. I'm a different kind of lady, and that's all right.

You are most assuredly sexy in the sultry, seductive gothic sense, and those bitches wish they could match Scratch.

Yeah, those were some fakey eyelashes with rhinestones on them. You wouldn't believe how heavy they actually feel! (Eyelids: the secret, untapped calorie-burning source.) hehehe

Hey, different is a good thing! It distinguishes a lady from all the other faces in the crowd and makes her attractive for her unique qualities.

Thank you for sharing your picture, your original post had my inquirying mind whirling. You are a gorgous Satanist, and your creativity and beauty is mesmorizing. I'm not able to view your picture as either "provocative" or "degrading to women." To view distasteful subjects I would just turn on MTV.

Holy Rhinestone Eyelashes, Batman!

Yeah that is nice. Few people can pull off the huge fake eyelashes like that.

Very glamourous. You'd get my attention for sure.

Let them seethe in their jealousy. One, they aren't feminine enough themselves to do such a thing. Feminists forbid that they should actually dress up for a guy, or look glamourous and sexy once in a while!

Two, they've not got the guts to stand up to the oppressive feminist culture. They'd cave in to the pressure, if they put on a skirt and heels taller than one inch.

Tell them that, "Women should look like women, not foppish, boyish girls. If you're gonna look the part dress like it, handlebar moustache, codpiece, and all. Stop pretending to be little boys. Most men are pussies enough as it is without women helping the travesty further!"

Hail to you for pointing out their flaws, throwing their tripe back in their face!

*smiles* FINALLY!
My dear, you have no idea just how much I can relate to you, seriously.

First things first – most of the female population are insecure pigs.
Instead of feeling comfortable in their own skin, and being able to compliment another woman on her good looks, they instead almost always wish to destroy her.
It is just something I have grown to expect…

I have been the target of such bullshit for a very long time now myself.
In the beginning it used to bug me endlessly.
Now I laugh it off, and take it as a major compliment.

I don’t hear any complaints from the men either – that’s how you know your doing something right sweety, trust me.
Most women want approval from other women.
So when a woman comes along who does not overly seek the opinion of the same sex, this causes a backlash of sorts.
You are called a ‘slut’ or ‘cheap’ … it is pathetic, and only ever reflects on the one’s saying it, NOT you.

Most women nowadays don’t embrace femininity at all.
And so be it, to each their own – but should that mean the one’s that DO embrace their differences to men and flaunt it proudly be constantly attacked?
-sighs- It is frustrating, but really at the end of the day, who gives a shit what they think.
Your gorgeous, and just because those bitches are too lazy to act like an actual lady once in a while, it doesn’t mean you should bare the brunt of their insecurities and childishness.

Kudos to you sweetheart, you are up there with the best of them.
I raise my glass to you, you are beautiful and confident and not afraid to show it!

Sure, it is degrading to woman with low self-esteem, poor sense of aesthetics, chronic lack of style and yellowish unkempt toenails…

Women, by nature, seem to flaunt their insecurities more eagerly than men do. They do this by banding together, often against other women, and "ganging up" against their poor adversary who is, in reality, often much stronger than they are in some sense. It is joked that women who have a tendancy to befriend other women quite easily do so because they can't get a man -- and this is often quite true because men, "real men" as the saying goes, prefer a woman with some strength to her character. A woman with a strong character may be financially independent, a strong nurturer or merely has the balls to look the part of the bombshell, vamp, or any other sexy icon that suits her or her whims -- my roommates and I feel that nerd-boys have a collective fetish for Goth chicks because that shows guts and strength to willingly look so different and exotic and set oneself apart from the norm -- which is also why, especially in high-school, the "Goth chick" will often be harrassed by other girls far more often than the boys.

Women are also some of the most vicious pack-animals there are. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a sign of "strength" but a big blibking neon sign advertising their insecurities.

When you can't cut it with the opposite sex, you turn to your own. Let me also point out that the most secure gay men often have at least a few good friend in women, the most secure and confidant lesbians I know have a best friend in a man. While it's always a good idea to keep same-sex friends around, a secure, confidant and well-rounded person cannot survive on same sex friendships alone. "Political lesbians" (a hip trend in the 1970s followed by heterosexual women who went though a "I hate ALL men" phase) are a by-product of insecurities. Insecurities are merely a by-product of lacking ability in Lesser Magic.

Personally, I'd rather look the part of a combination cute-girl-next-door/vamp but you do a good vamp/bombshell. Best of luck to you. Different strokes and all that....

Oh! You touched on something I forgot to mention --

Seeking approval.

One can argue that seeking approval from the opposite sex is a sign of insecurities as well, but the desire for approval from others in general is a sign of insecurity. There's noting wrohng with taking pride in one's appearance and there's nothing wrong with accepting the occasional compliment, but when it becomes a goal to collect compliments, there's a problem.

Now, not everybody who puts photos of oneself on their website is necessarily "fishing for compliments" -- there's a style to how one does it that points this fact out to others.

You are called a ‘slut’ or ‘cheap’ … it is pathetic, and only ever reflects on the one’s saying it, NOT you.

Oh, indeed! I've *ahem* enjoyed being a topic of rotation in the rumour mill, myself -- most likely because I'm short and "fat" and dare to both look attractive and act flirtatiously; because of this, I've allegedly "claimed to fuck people I didn't" when I never even claimed such a thing in the first place! Oh, heavens forbid the short and fat one have the audacity to not only be confidant and pretty but playfully slap a male friend on the ass at the bar! (And, furthermore, heavens forbid that male friend have a less-secure girlfriend who can't take my actions as a compliment to her taste in men! hrmph!)

Like my friend Mark always says -- if people are talking shit about you because of nothing you actually did than you must be doing something right!

Well said Rozzlyn, agreed.
Its always highly amusing whenever I get a email from a random female who has visited my site, and accused me of being one (or two) of the following: ‘full of myself’, ‘fishing for compliments’, ‘cheap’, or the always fabulous ‘you are so fake’.
Their lack of insight makes me laugh.
I model because I enjoy it, and it puts money in my pocket, it’s that simple…
People always want to put their own spin on things, and its usually coming straight from their insecurities about themselves, and in no way relevant to me in the slightest.


''-Like my friend Mark always says -- if people are talking shit about you because of nothing you actually did than you must be doing something right!''
Spot on!!

I don't know what to say, other than DAMN, go you! Women get so caught up in being feminist that they essentially become men. No! You can not be a house mom! No, you can NOT look beautiful, and you must have a full time job and work over 20 men roar!!
You are a human being, and as such you can do whatever the hell you want. Restricting yourself to living as a militant feminist is just as confining, if not MORE confining than being a stereotypical 50's submissive mom. Well, definitely more confining because if you try to break outside the circle, you're a horrible horrible person degrading women and making men think you're a piece of meat. They try to make you AFRAID to use natural gifts.

These are the same people that go to Chipendales (sp?)

You are degrading women, you're degrading them by putting their insecure sad asses to shame.

Well, you ARE full of yourself -- but not without good reason. You're generally a sweet girl and you look good for your body-type. You're also reasonably confident (hey, we all have our "down days") and secure-enough with yourself to do what you do.

...it's the people who are full of themselves for no reason that need to be put in their place.
