I came to this from memes. Vore me Daddy, amirite?
Thank you, Lindsay. The vore memes going around are pretty fun, but we like to see it as a chance to teach people about how useful... and how unintentionally common vore is. Resistance is futile.
My birthday is on August 8! Can't you have it on a different day?
Sorry about the coincidence. Plenty of people are born and celebrate their birthday each day. Even the least common birth days, Leap Day (February 29) and Christmas Day (December 25), still have enough people born those days to make it difficult to avoid.
Wait, isn't '88' a dogwhistle?
Unfortunately, yes it is. But, just like how '666' is a lucky number in China, the date '8/8' still has a place within us. We've made it clear in Rule #3 above that we are pretty much the opposite of Nazis in DVA, so in a way we're taking back that number for a safer reason. Shocking, I know.
Vore is disgusting! Why are you so disgusting?
Vore is gross in the same way that gore is gross: it's fleshy, gooey, and probably shouldn't be seen in a G-rated movie. But gore is a staple of action and horror, and nobody begrudges directors for loving it.
Isn't vore just a fetish?
Not exactly. The word 'vore' online came out of 'vorarephilia', the actual fetish. Ask a lot of artists who embrace vore from other broad fandoms like sizeplay and furry, and they'll say it isn't the same for them. They just see it as a fantastical extension of their identity.
