Important Stamp by Reitanna-Seishin Important Stamp by Reitanna-Seishin
i dunno why i didn't explain my resoning. well, here it is:

i've heard from many people, and also have exerienced this myself, that CENSORED yaoi drawings are being taken down by DA. listen, i have NO problem with artistic nude; i've never felt embarrassed by it. however, close up PHOTOS of a vagina or a penis i not art! and some people don't even censor it! i shouldn't be disgusted by the human body, and i shouldn't cringe if i see a nude picture. it's aweful, really. I DON'T WANNA LOOK AT YOUR JUNK!!! favorite this stamp if you agree. DA needs to get their heads out of their asses.

The way I see it- I hate Yaoi but I don't go around complaining about it. I've never seen an appeal in gay guys screwing- but that's probably just me because I'm straight and have no interest in that junk. I think it is nasty. That's just me though.

My response to you is simple; not rude, not an attack, just simple bluntness.

Unfortunately for you, nudes will always be on dA... no matter how noisy and shitty the picture of a twat is- it will be on the front page with 50+ favorites.

Back to what I'd said about Yaoi. I hate the shit- but unfortunately for me, it will always be on this website- so instead of whining about it I just sort of ignore it and keep scrolling.

Do the same- ignore the nudity and continue with your life.

Nothing you, I, or anyone else can do about it.

i'm stating my opinion, and there's a huge difference between artistic nudity and some close up picture of someone's genitals. i can express my opinion just as much as you can by saying you hate yaoi, and i respect you for that. there's nothing wrong with not liking something.

I know; that's why I didn't flip out and go 'BLAH FDOSNFSDOFNSD YOU SUCK ASS BALLS FOR NOT LIKING NUDITY' because that'd be highly immature.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

I know where you're coming from; I'm assuming you mean those low grade noisy pictures taken with a webcam of girls with spread legs.

It is disgusting; and it really makes people like me- who actually do enjoy nude posing ( but not with spread legs ) look pretty bad. : (

Hopefully one day it will be different. : \

At first I was going to rant on about the artistic nudity being art, but yes I agree completely with the people who are just there for the attention of it.

Complaints aside, I do have an idea as to how to address the situation. It may or may not work, but it's worth a try. I have no idea how to make it happen, but here it is. dA has certain artists that they are always promoting, I'll call them 'dA darlings'. If we could convince these extremely popular artists to speak out against the unfairness and blatant one-sided homophobia (which has gone on WAY too long), then maybe we could get somewhere. This may just be a shot in the dark, saying as dA unfairly has all the power, but it could be worth a try. I can only hope that these dA darlings are willing to say something and risk losing some spotlight...

I would guess you'd just find someone who is considered big in the community and just note them, ask them outright if they'll help. Like I said, it's a shot in the dark. But it could work to at least raise awareness.

I wouldn't call it 'exposed genitals' so much as 'junk presentation out of context'. I have no problem with porn, but I understand why it is not allowed. Because porn has this ability to completely take over, and it does so very quickly. If porn were allowed on dA, we would be SWIMMING in porn. However, on a site where 'pornography' is 'banned', I should not feel like I've just gotten a wrong number text and am now being subjected to someone's shitty blurry junk pictures. Is no monitoring the freakin' FRONT PAGE? But, in concern to rule breaking, shitty cell phone tits are not as promptly dealt with. It is the perceived slight (such as a censored picture or implied intercourse) that is swept under the rug much quicker than the blatant disregard for the rules. Also, the homophobia has reached a level where they just don't even try to hide it anymore. And they REFUSE to come clean. I'm beginning to think that everyone who works for dA is an emotionally immature frat boy who thinks that gay men are gross, but lesbians are hot.

seriously, they took down a page of mine because dib said the word "sex." isn't that infringing on freedom of speech? and discrimination is also wrong too! something needs to be done.

the reason is unfairness. DA takes censored drawings down, but leave close up photos of people's junk. i'm sorry, but there's artistic nude, and there's "hey look at my vagina/penis!"

They really need to update their filter, if they have one, or is it just some person flipping through pictures?

Do you mean in photos (like with attention seekers), or do you mean in paintings, drawings and/or statues? I'm sorry; I can't it support if you mean the traditional art kind - I am a big fan of nude portraits and sculpture works. The photos though, I agree completely.

I can only imagine, I heard it's beautiful there. :) Italian art is very nice, Greek too.

Definitely. Porn shots are just attention seekers; not really art - no meaning, no intentional focus on the Beauty of the human body; just 'wanna see my junk?'. No thanks.

True enough. Then again, get enough people (or persistent asshole) to complain about one artwork and DA would just take down the art rather than deal with the guy. So yeah.

I agree with this!
Sure, nude pictures and paintings are art, and some of it is even good, but just close shots of genitals and breast named "my pussy"," dicks","boobs", etc. belong elsewhere. There are sites for such pictures, for god's sake.
Sure, may that be considered as art, but still, from my opinion at least, it could be done with better taste.

Yep yep... I mean I don't want to even try to determine art, because that'd sorta be jumping up on people's faces... but yes, if some consider close-ups of genitals as art... ffs, they should put those photos on other sites, or sell them for medical use or something, but SHEESH, when I log in to dA and go through the frontpage, it's not nice to find such just plainly disgusting pictures...
