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

Hi! I've recently seen some of the work of your gallery and I really agree with you.

On the other hand (and please don't take this the wrong way) I believe there might be people concerned with the nudity and sexual content. To be honest I believe what you do in here is far from distasteful, let aside porn. You have great ways to approach many themes of our society, and because of that I understand the fact that placing a maturity filter may seem unnecessary to you and many people. But, then again, lets remember that DA community includes people from all ages, and countries around the world, so they might not understand that. So if someone reports your work keep in mind that. And well, you have two options here: either you could place the filter in your artwork more frequently (which seems to me a little extreme ...although I have to admit that if my younger self had stumble upon some of your work, I might have felt really uncomfortable. Though that's not the case anymore) or just don't take it personal (I know that's hard too) when someone reports one of your works. Remember there are parents out there concerned with what their little children may find in the internet, or people with different upbringings, etc. Again, I'm not saying your art is in any means wrong or inappropriate, but sadly many people do. I guess the perfect solution would be if the filters were established by the user, so they could avoid what they don't want to see, instead on placing them on the work itself, but anyways, we can't control everything.

On a more positive side, don't forget there is also a lot of people who admire and understand your art, myself included. Many artists, if not all, have dealt with some kind criticism through their lives; that is practically one inseparable quality of art, not everyone is going to like it. So again (sorry for being so repetitive), just don't take it personal and keep up the amazing work! And sorry for writing so much, I got carried away!

this is a BIG problem in the U.S.! people are too busy with religious morals and shit to care about someone elses beliefs, or the real issues in congress!

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.

You mean, the artist who wants to show people his art shouldn't care about the actions that prevent him/her from doing that?
Although you are totally entitled to your opinion about what you like, I don't think you should put an equal sign between what you like and what art actually is.
And since there are "people" in the world who think differently on things, based on your definition I don't think you could find really many works of art in the world. And that would take out all the fun out of it anyway. How boring would it be if everyone were the same.
Gunsmithcat is really provocative, and is clearly passionate about sex too. And he combines the two and creates socially relevant messages that provoke and shock sometimes. And the main point is, it really communicates. And from the number of comments, to a lot of people too.
