This is deviantART by Gunsmithcat This is deviantART by Gunsmithcat
This is dedicated to the deviantART admins who play the rules here as they want, not the same for everybody. 

This work is about hard censorship about sex in social networks, and mostly here, I suppose it was a website about art.

This is about the behavior of people who using the excuse of following the rules of the site, they use to report artwoks from other people, and I wonder if they say that they love art.

Now report that!

The problem with Deviant Art is that it's full of puritans policing the social network with dubiously repressed ideals!

If it's not something you'd show your grandmother mark it as adult content!

pretty much that, i mean, i could even understand who doesn't want too much porn around DA, but i don't understand then 

1 why they don't use the same evaluation method for everyone 

2 where actually is the problem if the hot material is marked adult content and so not visible to everyone... because maybe kids (and some grandma too) can bypass that? The fault lies not on the one who posted the pic, she-he-it (?!) followed all the given rules

What do you expect from progressives? Did you really think they'd show you sympathy just because you think like them? So much of what you draw is _problematic_, and they can't allow that.

It IS porn you dolt. This website is already full of porn as it is and staff doesn't have any control over it any more. i mean do you really think this is okay: gunsmithcat.deviantart.com/art…
when you sexualize something it's erotic right? any of the things you listed above is pornography and is explicit. i hope people understand that. I just love how you show deviantart staff as nazis too, like becuase you post porn you get mad when they remove it. shut the fuck up lol

"Ahh one of the sheeple" lol shut up dude

porn doesnt need to show penetration, if it's intent is to cause arousal its erotic and i know that most of his art is erotic and for the most part sexual just to be sexual. People just love that about it and probably gets them HOT!

i didnt really say it was all, but in general he does add sexual themes where it isnt needed. its just odd and unreasonable.
And just the fact that he has to say that deviantart staff are nazis because they dont allow actual porn. And hey most people on deviantart make things for the purpose to arouse i love this art website

Its a wider problem than deviant Art. Root problem is that children can be told any stupid idea and they believe it for the rest of their lives. Four year olds don't argue back. Stupid ideas passed on in this way include religion, nationalism and extreme politics and yes ideas about nudity. So agree with you on this one.

Indeed, there is censorship of art here.. although to be fair, there would be a lot of people contributing straight up porn and calling it art without the moderation.

Probably late to chime in on this, but the argument goes both ways. Im not wholly against nudity, nor am I against sexuality. I just really feel that certain things shouldn't be desensitized to youths or to adults. I'm under the belief sex is a sacred and deeply personal act and that you perform those acts with your partner(s). Im not against sharing the ideas of sex or its imagery, but I do think there should be a balance. 

I think a good majority of the nude art on DA is nothing but vouyeristic-flush. Theres very little aesthetic appeal or even a subconscious attempt at doing something artful. It seems more shock-and-awe type of stuff and it comes off as cheap.

There are a plethora of beautiful, interesting, and gorgeaous works that I truly respect and think are wonderful which pertain to the subject. Like yourself, you take great care to create a point in your subject material. everything is so thought provoking and interesting. From the poses, the actions, everything is well balanced and as a viewer, you know the nudity is just a vessel for the message.

Don't get me wrong, I try not to be elitist or to judge the principles of art on the works of others. I just think there is a difference between exploitation pieces and art, and that when the works are more for the previous its not art. Its exploitation of nudity itself. It devalues the whole principle of creating a nude piece. When the "art" itself devalues the subject matter, either by poor delivery or a lack of tastefulness, its just pure exploitation. Like I said it goes both ways, some nude art is tasteless to provoke a point, and it just relies on good delivery. 

To balance this all out, the difference between pornography and art is a grey area, theres a lot of porn that is artful. Not everything is black and white. My points just come down to is that there should be stronger screenings for younger people to see such things. That the site should allow for nude art as long as it is appropriately screened for the intended and appropriate audiences. And that those who post such things are aware of the varied audiences and respect nudity as a whole and do there best to create pieces of art.

I can understand your frustration, but at the same time it seems you are antagonizing them right now. 
Very nice work, though. 
I think this is also an apt description of censorship in general and what it is becoming. 

Edit: However, if you are upholding your end of the agreements set by DA and putting on the mature filter, and the admins still won't help you against the trolls with an agenda? Then you need to decide if it's worth still being here and inform people of where on the interwebs you can be found before you leave. :) 

You are too valuable to fade away.

Deviantart is a social networking Art website not a porn site. Therefore it should be artistic not some chicks lying down spreading their c*nt for us to stare at, that is just someone wanting attention go to a porn site for that. I fully support and enjoy all art and artistic nude can be so beautiful but all those listed in your deviation are flat out porn or for sexual intentions therefore doesn't belong on DA.. and so what if DA admins are telling you or someone else it's pornography that is there website and their rules if you don't like it then go make your own website and your own rules and complain there ;) Sure I don't like a lot of things on DA but I'm in no position to bitch about it so whatev.. Good luck to you though you're very talented :nod: If it's truly for art sake then let your message be heard but there are a ton of people that photograph and draw the same but their intentions are just sexual and not artistic so they ruin it for the ones with the true artistic intention.

I don't agree with putting sexual image on deviantart. Keep that site clean so it wouldn't transform into the next e621.  

This is what I'm talking about the meaningless porn infestation
www.deviantart.com/art/Porscha…
www.deviantart.com/art/The-Bes…

But you have a political message behing your nude art instead of doing just porn for the fap, so I can understand why you are angry.

Even if it is pornography, if the picture's set to "mature", then only mature people should click on it.  Dirt And if they don't like what they see, then it's their fault for clicking on it. 

There's so many pictures that are porn on Deviantart and they're not even set to "mature"... so I don't see why anyone would complain about your artwork. That's just silly. Simple Eek

The sad thing is, if you're looking for an art site, this isn't it.

dA is a family site by now. Will allow nudity in the name of "clean" art, but that's as far as it goes. And then they often times don't do anything about other sexual content because it's censored the right way. You can have drawings of hardcore fuck scenes if you want, if you simply censor.

Well said about the "family site" Peteru, my thoughts exactly. For pure art sites places like Behance, ArtStation, TalentHouse and the likes are far better. DeviantArt is a nice little family where if you're against some ideas you're out of the family, and where popular subjects and styles are always better advertised and supported than less popular ones(the anime & manga category for example)

Thank you so much for sharing those websites! =)
I've been looking for other art communities without any luck,maybe because they are not that popular yet. I'm out here,Deviantart totally decayed a lot recently,admins no longer know what they are doing here,this is completely out of control. It's a shame,such a good art website turning into a place full of everything but art.

My pleasure Devissing, I hope they will be a great place for you. And I'm not saying dA is not a good site, in the end it depends on each person's expectations and how he or she uses it. I for one found a lot of amazing artists through it whose works helped me decide what I wanted to do in life, and I plan to return to using the site, but without the high expectations. If it works then that's fine, if not there are other sites I can use just as well, if not better.
As for the other sites indeed they are not that popular, at least not to most of the dA pool around here. But they are well-known in their own areas, especially TalentHouse which, even though nowhere near as high up on the Alexa ranking as dA, or with so many users, still has a more knitted together community, and it features more competitions sponsored by various renowned artists and brands than dA. Actually I'm pretty sure dA started this following the success TalentHouse had and still has with their competitions. In the end TH doesn't go for mass popularity, but instead really makes sure to do a better job in connecting worthy artists with prospective clients, without the added drama of a social media-like environment.

Which lead us to the questions: is there a limit in art? To limit it, you have to define it. So what is art? Is it a message, an esthetic work? Simple question, many answers....

Great job. It's not usual that I cross the path of a painting made to make you think in this website.
