No Longer Accepting Paypal

Not that I made all that much money through Paypal donations (all $1.05 worth… and yes, someone who was paying attention donated $.05), but I have decided to eliminate all donations through the Paypal site.

The origins of this decision stem from a post on a favorite site of mine, Exiern, which can be found here.

Now, I personally do not have terribly explicit sexual content in the stories I write.  Not necessarily out of any prudishness as I find they don’t offer anything to the story themselves beyond empty fluff to titillate mindless readers.  It’s probably why I average 80 views a month, but I digress.

Drowemos Eseotevahi has produced a remarkably thought provoking comic that challenges the nature of gender roles, and yes, in his members only section he has what amounts to R-rated material that both offers fanservice for extra dollars as well as playing to the greater point of his concept.

It’s rather amusing that Paypal has effectively decided that a comic that challenges gender discrimination is “obscene.”

Well, you know what I find obscene?  When a company uses broad brush terms to push an undefinable agenda for arbitrary reasons.  I understand its their right to do whatever they wish, so don’t take this as some form of protest or demand to take action against Paypal.  But it’s also my right to have nothing to do with a company that doesn’t represent my goals and beliefs.  So I’m done with Paypal.

In the meantime, I recommend that anyone who wants a good read visit the Exiern webcomic.  No matter what Paypal says, it’s not obscene nor is it offensive.  It’s imaginative, it’s as original as stories get in this modern culture, and it’s worth the time to absorb.  I think any reader here would like it as much as I do.
