THIS IS THE GIFT I GIVE TO YOU, BECAUSE EVEN THE BARD KNOWS YOU'RE LOVELY.
This community started out as a way to congratulate girlfriends on positive choices or changes they had made in their lives. Women were awarded "roses" for their self-deeds. Unfortunately, there were not enough journals suggested to keep the trend going, nor did the moderator have enough time to constantly surf and look for new journals containing an entry where the author had done something to earn a rose.
So, on November 04, 2004, the moderator unveiled the new direction of the community.
RoseGift is now a place where ANYONE- male, female, transgendered, heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, metrosexual can come and post once a week to share something positive about either their body or their life. Tell us all what you did that was positive and self-enriching.
Once a week (but it will be after two weeks for the first award because I want to have enough people involved), the moderator will RANDOMLY select one of the submissions to be the entry of the week. That person will be added to The Roster of the Rose, which appears on the biopage for the community.
IMPORTANT: While I believe we all have the right to be proud of our sexual selves as well as all other parts of our being, I do want to keep this group from becoming spanking fodder. There are other places that people can go to find that online. There will be stories that will be exceptions to this- such as being able to enjoy sex again after a rape- that you should go ahead and submit. If you're uncertain about the content of a submission, don't worry. Submit it. I'll write to you and we can talk before I post anything if I think the post might violate the "PG-13" feel of the site.
With that in mind, here are the PHOTO RULES:
No Nudes- with the exception of rear-view shots that are UNDER A CUT and LABELED.
Cleavage shots are FINE, as are breasts which have the nipples covered. Again, think "PG-13."
Package Shots are FINE- if they are covered. I like them bare myself, but for this site, NO NEKKID PENISES.
YOU MUST BE OF THE LEGAL AGE IN YOUR STATE AND COUNTRY TO POST ANY PHOTO OF YOURSELF THAT MIGHT BE CONSIDERED RISQUE'.
ALL POSTS ARE GOING TO BE SCREENED BY THE MODERATOR. That way, I know before hand if there's a photo that we might get into trouble with. I know that sounds Big Brotherish, and I doubt it will even be a problem, but this account is under my name, so I'm protecting it.
rosegift is a community dedicated to recognizing people who are building better self-images and overcoming life's obstacles one at a time, thereby setting a positive example for all of us.
Your moderator is jinzi, who thinks everyone should find their inner beauty and let go of the magazine smile images burned into our minds.
PRETTY, PRETTY, PLEASE- DO NOT borrow the rose. Ask me if you want to use it. My email's on the page here!
