I'm gonna beat a dead horse here, so bear with me. I'm normally a very nice, understanding and forgiving guy. But I'm tired of being nice about this particular subject. I may even lose some fans over this...
Why are professional photographers, pencilers, inkers, painters, etc., who do wonderful work have to be assaulted and harassed because they post "nude" works? Now I'm not referring to the poorly taken selfies being posted on DA. That's a completely different dead horse.
Even models ( a couple are friends of mine), who post their works here often get blasted as well. WHY?! Because many uneducated folks don't know the difference between NUDITY and PORN?! Maybe. Sure, many on here don't apply the "Mature" tag, and they should. But that's pointless if the viewer has their filter turned OFF!!!
And to those that feel the need to harass artists for doing this...Go ahead and yell and kick and scream, or whatever makes you feel superior. But understand this...The human form is a work of art unto itself, no matter the shape. Art is subjective!! Which means it's viewed DIFFERENTLY BY EVERYONE!!! What may not be art to you, surely is to someone else! Okay, you're offended that "she's naked!" or "I can see his penis!". Turn on your "Mature" filter and report the ones that aren't using the tag. It's not hard to figure out, is it? Oh, and I love this one..."There's kids on DA that shouldn't see this stuff". That's right, there are. And it's their parents' responsibility to be parents!!! Which means THEY should be controlling what that kid is looking at, NOT YOU!!!
I'm gonna step down from the soap box now.
Have a nice day
