I had this wonderful little program that was specifically for manipulating pixel art, which I used to create a couple of emotes
but then it spontaneously broke and would refuse to run, even after reinstalling If I still had it I would totally just shoop the horrormirth one back to its original form.
But seriously though: Cain's link is an extreme example of course, but do you suppose that the American South has so many "social conservatives" that want to use the law to tell everyone what to do because they have so many of the genuinely dangerous crazy people?
Well, when you think about it, there is bound to be a link between social conservatism and deviant behaviour.
Imagine you've been struggling, since a young age, with those kind of "urges". You don't want
to be a bad person, most people don't. So, to try and combat those urges, you try and surround yourself with and gravitate towards the perceived "good" in society. In Amurrica, that means Church, and its associated trappings. Partly to avert suspicion that you are that kind of person (so, camouflage), but also, IMO, in a hope that "good influences" will turn you from your desires and needs.
Except, of course, they never do.
And frequently, the camouflage then becomes a cover under which the deviant behaviour can be expressed, incorporated into it.
Not to say that every social conservative is a wannabe serial killer and cannibal...only that, if you yourself had those desires and urges, wouldn't you try and control them? If you were addicted to deviant pornography, wouldn't you preach its evils, speaking from very personal experience? And so on and so forth.
I'm not sure I've made my point entirely clearly there, but hopefully you can sorta see what I mean?
