Hello and welcome to the LJ Slimy Community. But what is a slimy, I hear you ask? Well, every once in a while a person is born who just doesn't fit in. They know that they're different somehow, but are not quite sure how. And then maybe one day they're watching something on the Discovery Channel and they see a nice slimy centipede crawling across a log and it dawns on them: they were born the wrong species!
slimies is the place for these fun loving if slightly disgusting individuals to come and frolic together. Swap stories with other insects, worms, snakes, snails, spiders, parasites, and generally icky critters. Share tips on constructing or buying a slimesuit. Discuss society's anti-slimy and pro-Furry bias with other survivors of the ongoing slimacaust. But most important, just be your slimy self around other slimy people in a judgment-free, tolerant, happy place.
"Squishing" is a very special activity slimies share where we rub around on, crawl across, and generally ooze on one another. When two (or more) slimies love each other very much, squishing is the best way to share that love! That said, there's a time and a place for everything, and "cybersquishing", or "virtual" squishing with an online pal should be done in private—either in your own journal or through an instant messenger. If you decide to post a mass-cyberquish to the community, be sure to use a LJ-Cut and label it appropriately with a rating. Also, put "Squish" in the subject, like this "SQUISH: Open to all invertebrates. No reptiles, lol!"
