A very wonderful and very talented artist who I watch had to deal with some absolute trash. This is the journal he posted and I HIGHLY tell you (especially those of you who take commissions to read this and pass it on)
Do *NOT* take on commissions from Jared Bedard.
I was doing a headshot com for him at a THIRD of my current rate for the detail and work level and was going back and completely redoing it because I was no longer happy with the quality. Not to mention, it was a mawshot/vore piece, which I was uncomfortable working on to begin with but he insisted that's what he wanted.
He continued to insist that the payment was a donation and the art was not an obligation, not to worry about it etc, so I worked on it at my own pace.
When he found out that A. I'm FtM and B. My HS Was likely going to kill me, he got fucking disgusting.
See, he's friends with my fiance, who I love to pieces, but I can't understand where the hell my fiance finds these people.
He insisted that I *owed* my fiance my body, that regardless of my health and safety I owe him children, regardless of my PTSD I owe him sex. That my womb is Toms property, not my own.
He spent HOURS guilting me over the fact that I can not and WILL not have children because my womb does not belong to me and Tom is OWED a child, even if it kills me.
I was still attempting to either finish his comm or refund him. I just gave him options to choose between and he then attempted to guilt me because Im 'not telling him what's going on', even though that's EXACTLY what I just did. He told me to ignore other factors IE his harassment and degradation of me. He then went on to say he didn't even want to bring this up again(THEN WHY DID YOU!?)
If you are AFAB it does not matter to him what your health is. He is a despicable sexist that believes AMAB's are owed sex and children from their AFAB partners. Your body does not belong to you, it is the property of cisgender men.
Stay the hell away from him, for your own health and safety."
Please keep this in mind and if possible, pass it along.
