Keep It Weird: Angels and Demons

Oct 29, 2010

by Michelle Traub

This weekend, as you stuff your face with bleeding cupcakes and pumpkin ale, you may find yourself frenetically vacillating between the impulses of those dollar-store glitter wings and the droopy horns sliding down your face. The iconic internal duel of good and evil is never as explicitly apparent as on Halloween, so if you must egg your neighbor’s car, at least leave your surplus sugar booty in the front seat. Keep It Weird listens to both shoulders.

    So many interesting picks. I do like the picture of the angel with the gun... Kind of an oxymoron.

    Always within us we have as angel as devil. It's our goal to hear both but not allow no one to domineer. (Sorry for my english)

  • MirandaRanda

    MirandaRanda said 6 years ago

    I love the article but I have to point something out. I find the use of "schizophrenically" to be distateful. Think of it this way: if a person were to say that someone was doing something like a Black person or an Asian person, that would not be okay. Why would it with mental illness then? There is enough generalization, stigma and misinformation as it is.

  • MirandaRanda

    MirandaRanda said 6 years ago

    Maybe "she was drooling all over the place like a kid with cerebral palsy" would be a better comparison.

    this is great. i've been flipping people off quite a bit. at times, i think i have a little carpal tunnel developing from the repetitive motion. a ring just might help bring more focus to my point. i can suffer the carpal tunnel. ... and, oh, didn't you have the word schizophrenic on there... and had to take it off? oh, the hubris of the know it all young. things are never really what they might seem because people don't really see things as they are. they like to jump on bandwagons and label for catharsis.

  • Gleeza

    All interesting items, but did you have to choose the one flipping the bird (very cool ring btw) as one of the larger images? I'm not a prude or anything, but jeeze talk about "in your face"!

  • mjboutique

    I don't know what happened to my comment, so I'll say it again. I think it's very unprofessional to flip people off. Even if you're doing it with jewelry

  • saburkitty

    saburkitty said 6 years ago

    That's funny how the flip off item isn't labeled "mature". lol Yet it is heavenly.

  • Timeless

    Timeless said 6 years ago

    Considering all that's been going on on Etsy lately that has made the sellers feel they're not important to you at all, I think that one picture is very telling. Freudian slip anyone?

  • amysiris

    amysiris said 6 years ago

    Love SeldaOkutan! Her whole shop is really cool.

  • cabingramma

    cabingramma said 6 years ago

    To KEEP IT WIERD - Why the need to be vulgar and graphic with this particular photo? Couldn't you have picked another 'family friendly' item of the seller's to showcase? Is Etsy gravitating towards 'sex, evil and poor taste'? For mature audiences, surely! To SeldaOkutan - I do appreciate your talent. To ETSY - I'm disappointed in you for allowing this photo front and center. We, as sellers, should have the freedom to make and sell what we want - legally, but someone has to censor what makes front page and I'm sure there are MANY others that join my opinion. Hope you believe in 'freedom of speech' ...

  • cabingramma

    cabingramma said 6 years ago

    Appreciate the talent just not the choice of photo used so my 2 cents was obliterated. Freedom to make and sell is great but Freedom to promote 'bad taste and evil' without a warning for 'mature audiences' is wrong.

    "MirandaRanda Maybe "she was drooling all over the place like a kid with cerebral palsy" would be a better comparison." Congrats, you just offended people like me with siblings who HAVE CP. My brother does NOT drool, thank you very much.

  • PetitPoulailler

    Please install a "report this post" for all Storque articles. I appreciate Etsy allowing everyone to express their opinions here, but some adult editorial control should be shown. If only out of kindness.

  • ArtfulMosaicSupplies

    ArtfulMosaicSupplies said 6 years ago

    I find the comment about CP to be incredibly insensitive, vile, offensive and just plain ignorant. Disgusting analogy.

  • vividcolors

    vividcolors said 6 years ago

    Thanks so much Etsy for finally giving us the finger! "MirandaRanda Maybe "she was drooling all over the place like a kid with cerebral palsy" would be a better comparison." -------------------------- Now, that was absolutely distasteful, offensive and cruel!

  • WanderingLydia

    WanderingLydia said 6 years ago

    Love that cherub!

  • mjboutique

    mjboutique said 6 years ago

    I think MirandaRanda was trying to show examples of why using schizophrenia as a descriptive word (where frenetically now is in the article) is offensive. Note her comments go together: MirandaRanda I love the article but I have to point something out. I find the use of "schizophrenically" to be distateful. Think of it this way: if a person were to say that someone was doing something like a Black person or an Asian person, that would not be okay. Why would it with mental illness then? There is enough generalization, stigma and misinformation as it is. Maybe "she was drooling all over the place like a kid with cerebral palsy" would be a better comparison. ------- And thus she is saying, using the word schizophrenically is as offensive as saying "she was drooling all over the place like a kid with cerebral palsy."

  • PetitPoulailler

    PetitPoulailler said 6 years ago

    and then Etsy edits out the offensive word in the article, leaving MirandaRanda and her reference to twist in the wind. Honestly, Etsy. Flipping us off? Calling out sellers? Insensitive word use? Your little 'oopsies' have advanced far beyond simply being embarrassing.

  • mtraub

    mtraub said 6 years ago

    Hi everyone. Yes, MirandaRanda's cerebral palsy example was merely an analogy to my inappropriate use of "schizophrenically" in the original post. I agreed with her objection, and thus removed the descriptor. I apologize for the confusion.

  • frogprincessdesigns

    frogprincessdesigns said 6 years ago

    very nice picks this time around! no objections to any of the pictures used (that ring is pretty neat!) but, yes, schizophrenic was definitely inappropriately used. Glad to see it has been fixed!

    My wife made the demon sculpture, which I love. People need to chill out. Making a big deal out of a finger is a waste of your life. Who cares, it's an appendage that is pointing up and the others down. How did this become a bad thing. I don't care what people believe, just wish everyone would chill out and enjoy life instead of the nitpicking. Life is not that serious.
