OMG Etsy Why? LOL

A friend emailed me today. She had ordered a bunch of prayer cards from my shop recently, including the most recent ‘Antinous the Lover’ card. Some time after receiving her order, etsy sent her a follow up, reminding her that it was time to rate her purchase. The follow up email included a thumbnail image of one of the cards she had purchased, in this case the Antinous card. It zeroed in on the naked phallus so…etsy sent my friend an Antinoan dick pick. *face palm*. Good job, etsy. Good job.

  1. Well…it appears that the need for these particular prayer cards now was for reasons none of us had anticipated!

    And, for those who insist that Antinous is ONLY a “Gay God,” I present you with evidence to the contrary! 😉

    Antinous’ penis, like Antinous Himself, is for everyone equally!


  2. LMAO!


  3. It’s just an algorithm, it’ll by default focus on a certain region of every image. But that’s pretty damn funny.


  4. I was half expecting the opposite to happen…etsy censoring said phallus. Now that would have been terrible.

    Hail Antinous!
