Censure killed the meaning of art by Gunsmithcat Censure killed the meaning of art by Gunsmithcat
All of you who report works from other people because are against your morality are just killing the sense of art

I don`t think the 'art' should care about censorship, if you draw something nasty\offending\dangerous\racistic\smutty or some other things that people find distasteful - it`s not art. Art should be easy to understand and admired by all - showing the bset of mankind and nature, not something most base (like nudity). This is what art is in my opinion.

That description is just...
Yes
Just because others have a different sense of art it doesn't mean they have to be reported

Very much true, and thank you very much for making the point in the first place!

It's one thing to report postings that violate the rules (such as I've done on Facebook*), it's totally another to claim something is porn/hate speech/etc. simply because you don't like it.

*(And the pics I reported were ignored, despite showing nudity, which was against FB's rules. They censor freethinking/athiest/pagan groups simply because religious fanatics report them because they don't support the fanatics' dogma. This is one of MANY reasons why I left Facebook forever and will NEVER return!)

Of course not! Not when the self-appointed Guardians of Public Morality live in mortal fear of people having fun!

That's why I love one line from the CLAMP manga XXXHolic: "What's the harm in being yourself, if you're not hurting anyone by doing so? What's the benefit of following the crowd, if it makes you miserable?"
