Oh dear..the one going "woo" in the back...oh dear that is so my sis XD unfortunatly I'm more like the worried looking one 0_0 Though if I really got into the fight I might start going "woo" to X3 -- "Na dein nos agus na bris nos (neither make nor break a custom)"
rofl, yah! so cute! Man, I only wish life were so simple. Just lay in the surf or snooze on the beach...ward off horny males and pray something bigger doesn't try to eat you. Sooo, much simpler than jobs, careers, university, car insurance, politics...blah.
I just love your Selkies! I hope you will draw more soon!
Maybe he mistook the male that's losing as a female? Idk. Not that male rape is non-existant. Lots of men and boys are raped daily, and by women at that. Just that in (my) society at least rape is seen as something that happens to girls, and girls (in my society) are assumed to have long hair?
I'm speculating based on my particular culture so I really can't say anything for the stranger.
I see two "people" kicking the crap out of each other and some spectators. usually rape doesn't have a crowd, and I doubt it's have a crowd with such mixed receptions of the scene before them but that's just me.
Wow. I just wrote something coherent and semi-though out on DA.
Have you ever actually seen two bulls seals fight over females? What undertones of rape? Are we even looking at the same picture, here?
Also, your society should have impact on your knowledge of rape and a foolish, antiquated association of long hair with women. These are selkies. Legendary creatures that don't exist, half-seal, half-human. They don't act like humans. Otoh, they won't act entirely like seals either... But your equating a picture of an instinctual fight for dominance as rape makes me worry.
And just so you know, seals do gay stuff too, and it's most certainly not rape of any kind.
...Undertones of rape? Wtf? All I see here is two humanized seals doing what seals do every mating season; which is fighting over a harem of females. For some reason I was reminded of elephant seals; probably because they're the largest breed of seals (their males are effing huge! It's interesting watching one try to beat up a car lol).
Seals aren't monogamous! It literally is down to whoever is the biggest and strongest, and if he can protect his harem well enough and fight off any male that comes along (and these aren't 'slappy slap slap' fights; there's usually teeth and blood everywhere), then he gets the right to mate with all the females in his harem (who choose to be there I might add). Elephant seal bulls have even been known to crush pups as they charge through anything in their way to get to a trespassing male.
Nature isn't all farts and sunshine, and I guess this is just proof that some people need to watch more documentaries and read more books. God forbid if they saw what happens when a male lion takes over a pride... I saw that when I was a small kid; and it traumatized me a bit; especially considering the cubs were only tiny :/
This is awesome. I know I ought to offer better praise tha this, but presumably you know what you did right... and it's so weird, because I was just thinking I need to draw a selkie... and then I randomly come across this.
