Recently, the term "loli" has been brought to my attention. But please let me first explain this:
I came up with this (weeb) username when I was like what 13 or 14 or something idk it has been so long.. with no understanding of its true meaning. Because people used it so casually - probably thinking it meant something else as well, I didn't think much of it. In fact, I thought all it meant was "little girl." Kinda like how I thought shota just meant "little boy." (I see now that shota doesn't mean that either!! what is this... people use it so loosely...)
No, it doesn't make this more appropriate, but I'd like you to consider the following. 1) I was ignorant about the term. 2) Please inform me privately if you have a concern. This applies to other people who have the same situation. It could be that they just misunderstood. Communication is key and so long as you're mature about it, I'm sure they'd understand.
I bring up communication because I was quite rudely called a pedophile over my username. Ugh, it still disgusts me seeing that because I do not want to be associated with that in the slightest. While I cannot hold them 100% for the blame because my username is my mistake, I still think that was a terrible approach. Honestly, if someone just was like "uh hey did you know.." I'd be like ew wtf thanks for letting me know tho (and I wish this happened earlier on.. before I made so many accounts and before all my USTs and stuff were under that name.....and ..back when I had dA prem.. can't dwell on that though.)
Unfortunately, many of my accounts/videos etc. are stuck with the name. I think like a year or two back, I was already interested in changing my username (to make it non-weeb. Still had no clue about its implications.) I asked around and nobody (who answered) thought there was a need to change it. I'd like to hope that nobody brought it up because they didn't know about it either or something along those lines and not because they felt like they couldn't speak to me. I strongly encourage you take a chance next time; I hope I seem like a receptive person-! I'll let you know now that I will respond as appropriately as I can.
Anyway, I've been thinking about making a new account for awhile as well so maybe it's high time I act on that. Maybe after exams and for the new year.
In the meantime, you can credit me as pand (as many already do) for USTs, but honestly, I'm not nearly as crazy about UST credits anymore (besides claiming it as yours.) I'll go around changing any usernames I can after exams.
tldr; If you ever uncomfortable about something about me or what I've done, please maturely and privately contact me about the issue. Thanks.
