Better than real tv.

Turn it on and never turn it off.

Hey everybody

I recently became aware of the existance of the strap toothed whale. 

Look at this crazy bastard:
Strap-toothed whale by namu-the-orca

"The strap-toothed whale has one of the most unusual sets of teeth of any mammal. As with many beaked whales the teeth only erupt in adult males, but in these individuals they grow up from the lower jaw and around the upper until it is completely encircled and is prevented from opening fully. In fact mature male strap-toothed whales cannot open their jaws more than 11-13cm – not much for an animal up to which can grow to 6m in length".

Why. 

Why does it do that. 

I'll be doing a comic on this eventually, don't worry. 
Ugly Book Covers: 4th Dimensional Slender Man Sex by RomanJones
Ugly Book Covers: 4th Dimensional Slender Man Sex
This started in a very different direction than where it ended up.

EDIT: People have pointed out that the guy is wearing a tribly pulled low over his eyes. I thought it was a shirt on his head because of the text. I corrected it.

So, there I was doing two of my favorite things - brainstorming about projects and fucking around on Something Awful's comics threads - reading as they ripped apart some stupid pervert who draws rape porn. 

I was enjoying the shit outta this when I made an unsettling realization: 

One of my future projects, "Union", might be misinterpreted as 'rape porn'. 

At no point in it's production had I ever thought that the non-consensual scenes would be considered sexy. In my mind they were to be disturbing and meant to incite fear and bleakness. I wanted to contrast those scenes with the loving consensual moments that would be genuinely erotic.

I just sat there for a minute and seriously reconsidered the project as a whole.

What I see: A plot backdrop involving an abstract concept of sex trade while exploring extreme character evolution in a harsh post-economic collapse environment.

What viewers will probably see: disgusting yaoi assault shit glorifying everything I hate in gay-related fiction.  

The very last thing I'd ever want to see is one of these scary fangirls masturbating in the comments over how 'kawaii' 38-year-old car mechanic Henry's glassy-eyed clinical depression is. I'd feel sick to my fucking stomach and probably abandon the whole thing. 

I know that I can't control what the audience thinks 100% of the time. Usually I can count on being clear in my communication to avoid any serious misinformation.

But seeing how anything involving a gay couple in an uncomfortable setting instantly translates to "inviting the female version of 'Deliverance' into your fan base" for some bizarre reason, I might have to rethink my angle here. 

So, my lovely watchers, I ask for your advice: What exactly would you suggest I do to make it clear that I don't think sexual assault is sexy? What would be some red flags for me to avoid? 

Edit: I wanted to say that the non-consensual sex in 'Union' isn't violent at all. In the first third of the story, Henry and Trevor are living in a very non-sexy brothel. They're being paid for sex and both take the work differently. Trevor isn't all that bothered by the job and tries to have fun with it. Henry never wanted to be in this position and feels violated after each encounter, despite the fact that the clients are often female and quite friendly with him. There aren't any cases of someone being forcibly molested in the story. 
When Roman was walking through the internet he overheard a conversation between Amazon and his customer.

"Give me the ugliest book cover you have," said the customer.

"Everything in my shop is the ugliest," replied Amazon. "You cannot find here any book cover that is not the ugliest."

At these words Roman became enlightened.

Hello.
I was born in South Candyland under the rule of Queen Frosting. I was raised in a strict Necronomic household by Nigerian parents who died in a freak child-rearing accident that left me alone and homeless at the tender age of thirty-four. After traveling Asia via balloon and sniping those FUCKING MONGOLIAN FUCKERS for ice cream money I started drawing cartoons about a homosexual super villain with a debilitating spinal disease.

I'm allergic to kiwi fruit.
