Spirit Day 2012 by SpitfiresOnIce Spirit Day 2012 by SpitfiresOnIce
There's something I want to say first.

I've read a lot of people's reaction to the Spirit Day submissions yesterday. Mainly positive ones of people who think it's a good idea, but also quite some people who weren't all that happy about it.
"Submitting purple things isn't going to help those bullied people."
"You guys just draw these things to get attention."

And those people might be right in some ways - of course this won't stop bullying, a picture on the Internet doesn't change anything. But does that mean everyone who participates is either a naive kid thinking they are changing the world or an attention whore? I just don't see why people shouldn't be allowed to submit stuff like this. It's a community project, after all.

Of course people should always support others having a difficult time no matter when, but that doesn't mean it's bad to submit these pictures on a certain day. Just because people are only submitting it on a day that is about bullying doesn't mean they don't care.
Also I'm one day late, sorry about that.

Either way, I tried something different but I can't paint. x)

i don't have anything against the spirit (even if i really hate purple) it's just that i think they're shouldn't be a day just for the ones who get bullied or kill themselves because of they're sexuality
there are many people who also think about suicide because of other thinks , or even killed themselves because of other things and they don't get an own day and believe me i now it because i allready was pretty close to it

Yeah, you're right. :P I don't really see the use of different days for some parts of a group either, but yeah, I guess it's not bad to celebrate them, even though it's true that the other parts of the group should have just as much attention.
