MH: Stop the Hate by KPenDragon MH: Stop the Hate by KPenDragon
I was so heavily inspired by ~AlyssaTolensky’s piece that I just had to do one of my own. I was given the ok to, so thus this is the result.

I’d recently been given some flack about my headcanon that Neffera was gay off site (you may have noticed me going “I felt like I needed to defend my ship even though I know I don’t have to” on my tumblr ^^; ). And you know, you gotta love it how despite all the different things I do, people will zoom in on the one different thing and go “ew! Don’t do that, do something normal</a>” when if they looked they’d see that “normal” is what I normally do. Seriously, people…but that’s a semi-off topic rant! XD;;;

I had been given grievances about Neff being gay, Alyssa did her piece, and it was so inspirational and just the most perfect of timing.

But here there is much symbolism too. So you see that they aren’t holding hands, but holding pinkies; it’s more intimate yes, but also speaks volumes upon their relationship. Momba’s also the only one wearing the bracelet. This was done because their relationship still isn’t public, and it’s only not public because Neff is fearful of the backlash she’d get for it. Momba is openly proud of her orientation, but she is patient enough to let Neff get to that point too. So this pinky hold, it speaks of their hiding, but it’s also such a big leap in the displaying of public affection as well. So much symbolism ^^;

So yeah, that’s the piece. I tried my best to mimic the webisode style I think…colored outlines ^^;

Help spread the message that if we are to truly stop the hate, it must be all hate towards all types of people and not just a select few.

Very nice. I like that you did a similar piece touching the lesbian community as well. It's well done and I'm glad I'm not the only one who ships Nefera as being gay.

The only critique I give is that perhaps an original character with a canon isn't the greatest choice, but I'm always biased against pairing an OC with a canon character.

Otherwise, I really like it and it touches me that I've began to inspire others in my stance against hate towards homosexuals/bisexuals and etc. in the Monster High community.

yeah i know the canon/OC ships sometimes are frowned upon and with good reasons, but there are some that do work and are rather good, so in a way this can also touch upon that too (oooo even more deep seeded symbolism XD;;) but it's ok ^^ everyone should and can ship however they'd like no matter what.

and thank you very much, i'm glad you like it and approve. that's cool that you ship Neff that way too, outside my usual chat circle i haven't seen much of it ^^; and that was another thing that really got me too; i actually rarely draw lesbian/yuri things (idk why just something i noticed) so to have one of the few ones i did do, and really love to be comented upon negatively in that manor, totaly not in a constructive or technical manor, it also hit there too.

it really is and was a great and wonderful inspirational piece you did. so thank you again for doing it, for putting it out there, and for allowing me to help contribute to it too.

I have drawn and colored a Neff yuri pic, but...it's with Cleo and incest is very looked down upon...think I should post it anyway?

i think i you're comfortable with it as an art piece and with posting it, then do it. and if it helps the case any, the ancient egyptians had no qualms with sibling marriage, it was even encouraged if i'm remembering my world history project correctly enough ^^;

That's awesome! I used to be way into the ancient egyptian culture and history as well, but it was so long ago, I just kinda of fell out of it when I picked up my first book about the haunts of San Diego. Pretty quickly, my Egypt books were replaced by ghost and paranormal related books. I still have a growing collection of material and have a few logs about my encounters and research.

I love ghosts. ^^ (I loved Spectra before I heard her voice and learned that she was a sweet ghoul. I was expecting a 'Rita Skeeter' sort of character out of her. You know, nosy b!tch, loves bustin' chops and spreading gossip. Gets her facts wrong by choice to make a juicier story, not she got the facts wrong by mistake. XP watevs. I've openly complained about that to Garrett and he's all 'but we thought we had too many mean girl characters'. -_- ...There's only two ((technically four counting Meowledy and Purrsephony, but they don't do anything)).)

wth me i was into wolves. and then dragons. european, eastern, then Pernese, and then there came Yugioh XDDDD it had dragons AND made em love Egyptian stuff even more. and it's stuck. it also lead me to Norse mythology which i also love.

ghosts have always been cool too, but i was always way more into mythologies and mythological creatures. i was dead set on Deena and Cleo for the sheer fact they were a wolf and Egyptian. andi know the Spectra thing! i was so expecting a Rita Skeeter too! it was such a disapointment she wasn't like that. and really, look at a typical highschool; it's filled with "mean girls" of different types. but MH is trying to only pick out the good ^^; i like to think the "sweet girl" is just an act for Spectra and she's a total nosey gossip with a devious streak :lol:

This is amazing! And I cant help butlove the fact [your] Neff is gay. Abbey is my favorite and I portray her as anopenly, sexual, woman. She Hates the fact guys get to boast so why can't she? But she does not sleep around, if that makes any sens e Anyways, fantastic job!

Yay! Momba x Nefera :D There's no proof that Nefera is straight. She hasn't mentioned a boyfriend or anything like that. If I had read the flack you had got I would have just said "Well maybe she's Bisexual." XD I can't even think of a guy suitable for Nefera anyway. xD Momba however, is perfect for her. :)

well it's ok; it was on my video/s. but it was mostly the"why can't you do a boy/girl love story?" comment that got me considering every other video i had had straight pairings (and personally Black Vow is borderline since the angel (who technically is genderless to begin with) changes to a mle before there's anything between the girl). i'm all for people shipping as they will, they don't have to like my ships. but at least looking around is nice. but yeah, idt any guy could handle Neff, they'd be too intimidated and she wouldn't wanna give up her power to them XDDD
