    (first of all, im not asking anyone to take this to heart)
    i am a new member at the 12 ounce boards and if you wanna call me a toy b/c im a "rookie" on the message board, go right ahead. anyway, this message is to anyone who calls someone a toy. in my opinion a toy is someone whose heart isn't into graff. not someone who is shitty at painting. i met a really sincere writer, who loves graff and paints. he is not all that, but he puts everything into it. he goes out and does not paint over anyones work and has a lot of respect for it. so before you call someone a toy next time, just think about what i said. if the person is painting and only doing it b/c its cool, or just to get popular, than they are a toy. if there is no integrity or drive behind it, then they are a toy. peace- cdz

    theres no shame in being a toy, only in being a sucker. someone thats writing to be cool, with no heart, isnt even a toy, they just dont exist.

    perhaps you should re-read mine. I just said if you know your not a toy, then fuck what anyone says. this is graffiti, people are gonna talk mad shit to you, far worse things than just calling you toy. so if you cant just shrug it off your gonna have problems.

    Subject of Toys

    Damn this new meessage board is complex. I hope I'm not starting a new subject here...
    It seems like a "TOY" is someone without style. I always thought it was a term for beginners who haven't developed a style, but I'm always hearing people claim that "so-and-so is a toy" in a critisim of style and skill, even if the writer is up up up and has been for a while.
    Even worse is the overuse of the term "toy" on message boards as a general insult.

    If your going to hang out here, people are going to say shit you dont like. Try these three things.
    Read or search threads before asking questions.
    Actually study the artform if you arent already.
    Stand up for yourself, in the sense"DO NOT CALL YOURSELF A TOY"
    Thats like a girl calling herself a slut, or your mom calling you GAY.
    You dont need it.

    toys = new writers that are naive and ignorant to the many ways of graff and more obviously by how bad they suck.

    also another big factor of a toy is attitude ie, thinking your a big king and crossing out people or burning over a famouse piece

    but mostly its lack of skill
