I would like to explain. As I slept on this and realized some things, I want to come clean about this. 
So the whole point was to be a double prank; for a day, I would admit who I was and then have everyone react to at as "LOL nice april fool's joke." But that's not what happened, everyone took at as it was AND was supportive of me. That made me feel pretty happy, I'll be honest here. I thought about doing this years into the future once I felt more comfortable with myself, but I never pictured myself admitting all of this at this exact moment in time. But, I realized that it's sort of childish to sit around in a mask.
But let me elaborate further about why I lied just to begin with. Back on my old accounts, before I pretended to be a guy I would get some creepy grown adults flirting with me (even though I was about 13 at the time). It's Deviantart, after all. But regardless, of course, it made me feel uncomfortable. I'd get grown adults in their 20's saying that they liked me, people lying about their age to appeal to me more, and so on. Then, I joined Newgrounds (which has a mainly male demographic). I decided to try and avoid all of that happening again by claiming I wasn't really a girl and that I was actually a guy. It worked, even though my name was the girliest thing is the world (coughmeowberriescough) and the only questionable thing I got was from Xenomit lol. That was to be expected though. But saying that I was really a guy made me feel less uncomfortable and more included. I also didn't want to get an easy A with my art on there, too, if that makes sense. It felt that as a guy, my views would be gained naturally and I wouldn't get anything easier that way. I wanted to be challenged more, basically. So if I somehow managed to get successful, it would be more satisfying to me that way.

Yet, there's an issue with all of this all at the same time. I felt like once people realized who I actually was, they haven't been flirting or anything but have more... hyper? Not sure how to describe it, but I feel as though some people have been acting differently towards me since yesterday. Just know... that's sort of why I did all of that in the first place. So that I'd be thought of just normally without any bias involved, essentially. So just please continue to think of me normally. I have no intentions of flirting around with anyone as well, since I know some people back on Newgrounds do that kind of thing jokingly.


Local killjoy, at your service.

(Originally created on April 1st as a joke):

Throughout all of these years of being on the internet, I've lied to all of you this whole time.

I'm not really a guy... I was actually a girl this whole time. I'm really sorry to keep this a secret about this for so long, but I feel like I should stop hiding who I actually am. :< I hope you all forgive me.
Here's a super secret real life picture of myself for proof:

This is approximently the millionth time I've been sick in the past 6 months. 

May be even slower to update my art (not that it really matters though).


Commissions

2017-03-07 21:43:42 by Oddlem

I was thinking about this the other day, but is it too early in my artistic journey to start up commissions? I've been debating on it with myself, but I'm not sure if I'm quite "there" yet. :P

Bronze Whistle

I went on my profile to check something, and for a second there I thought I had a garbage whistle because I saw a color change. I finally got my bronze whistle. :>
