I have some strange ideas sometimes, but they do bring lots of fun doing them :rofl:

TLTR section:

This picture made me thinking about mature content again. In my opinion here is nothing sexual. At all. It was my intention to make this picture as strange as possible and no clothes, as well as no nipples or belly button suit perfectly. So i removed them not for instagram strange policies or something :D still, patreon made my profile "adult content" because f this picture… they say "to make the website a family friendly environment".… The same happened here on DA once. Strangely enough the mature content was put on the picture with no sexuality in it, just a naked girl, but more sensual pictures in some very sexy underwear wouldn't be marked as mature content…
so this said, i can't say i don't agree, but then again my impression is that most (sorry if i sound rude, i have no intention to insult anyone) americans argue it's for the sake of children! And I'm confused, don't they allow to go to a museum? I mean there are not only lots of pictures with naked women, classic pictures, nothing sexual, as well as some intended to show a very attractive in sexual way women, but also greek statues depicting breasts and dicks.

I know the internet isn't a museum, i was a child myself and hadn't had an add blocker in my first years of internet, so i've seen some stuff i wouldn't like to (strangely enough my mom was shocked more then i was :D i don't know, i just got to ignore the stuff :rofl: ). I'm still pissed seeing some badly made selfies obviously with sexual undertone on the websites for artists. And the worst thing is the comments… come on guys! It's not a fucking dating site! Stop giving a freaking attention to this pictures and they may finally be not as often! But no, you have to write "i wanna lick ur pussy" and shit like this… Just fuck off already to the notes or something!

Why, why does a nakedness, something what is quite pure and normal, being so victimised in the internet? Maybe it's only here in Germany we are so used to it what no one gives a fuck about nipples, because if one want to go to a sauna, one has to dress off completely… because of hygiene! And of course men and women are using a sauna together :shrug: sure, there are separate saunas fo women only if they want to (but not for men… sexism! :D). And this is not the only FKK (Free Body Culture) one can meet here. No one is forced to do it. If you don't like seeing it, you just turn your head to another direction and mind your own business.

Ok, I'm not trying to say what germans are so cool and blah blah, freaks are everywhere, i just trying to understand what is it about internet what made it so hard to do an art with nakedness. Or is it just laziness of the web sites owners to really differentiate a mature content filter to some subclasses, so one can choose what one would like and wouldn't like to see, or maybe it's something else like when someone says a word fuck (or whatever) in a sentence and a person you speak to starts "Mind the language! Here is a random child not far away from us in this bus!" and you are like "Yeah, if you wouldn't make a fuzz about this word, no one would pay an attention to it in the first place. And also, we are in a different country speaking a different language as this child other there" 🙄🤦‍♀️ So my thoughts are, just be honest, say "I don't wanna hear/see this stuff for my own personal preferences" and i think most of the people would try to be polite and mind it next time.

What i want to say is, maybe we are overthinking some stuff, maybe we do make a forbidden more desirable by behaving this way. Or maybe we are just too lazy and try to solve everything by putting one big filter to everything. Still cannot get why DA has all this mature content choices to tick on if there is only one filter to everything 🤨 And yes, i ticked nudity and strong language :D

So i will stop spamming here. I don't know why it made me so pissed. It's not that i will get so much less views if my picture is marked as mature content. I think most of the people are watching mature content on DA and other artistic websites. Maybe i'm just pissed what my artistic (in my opinion :D) pictures are put on the same level with some badly made pornography on a website for artists. And then i feel like it's a lie to say what it's for the sake of children (cos i grew up in museums with all this nipples and occasionally dicks around :D) and i think i'm now a pretty normal adult (depends on how you differentiate it of course ^^;)
So i just feel like i'm being oppressed as an artist i guess. And it's just about me and my art right now, i don't want to say it about all artist using nakedness in their work. Every case is different and once again, i just think one big mature content doesn't solve a problem for me.

Oh, Anna, there is so much wrong with the photography section here on DA, sometimes I honestly feel like when I'm looking through the newest work in People & Portraits is like scrolling through a cheap porn site (that might even be insulting to some sites lol)
It actually has really started to bother me lately too, how people abuse being naked in pictures, I'd like to think I'm pretty open-minded but honestly, some of the photos I've seen on here have no intention of being remotely artistic. It's nudity for nudity's sake, no theme or concept, just naked lady, legs in the air leaving nothing to the imagination, which is just kinda sad and to think there are beautiful photos that get lost and hidden amongst all of this too.
And then the comments I've seen some pretty disrespectful ones and not just comments but how some images are named or the models never get credited and then I wonder if the images weren't just stolen off the internet and posted on DA. It's just crazy!

Sorry I got carried away, is it just me or does Angelique have a Joker vibe going on she just needs a little white face paint =D You guys are awesome!

The problem for me is that that kind of prudery tend to come in France too. I have seen several time nipples censored in tv.
Which is really a recent thing. And it's piss me off and makes me sad in the same time. Angry emoticon 

Anyway, great picture, funny and disturbing in the same time. :)

I don't really watch tv anymore so I don't know if it's really a commun thing or not. I think it depend of the channel.

I enjoy the strangeness of the photo and I love your description... I couldn't agree more. Nudity is not inherently sexual!

Me dear fellow artist, you said and explained absolutely everything I could write now. I use exactly the same arguments while disacussing such "delicate" issue. When you talk about museums, you summarize it all: this mature content is there, so anyone can see it. When I was a child I went to lots of museums and exhibitions and nothing bad happened. I grew up and learned that certain things are natural and only this. People seem to create "storms in glasses of water", as we say here (it means "turning a tiny thing into a huge problem"). 

It's interesting what you said about your country. It's something I see people commenting on very often, and I find it very normal. I was discussing it with a friend who went there a couple of months ago and was a bit shocked with certain behaviors that seemed normal to me (or at least did not seems too bizarre). Well, I live in Brazil, and things are pretty crazy here. Brazilians are more conservative than most people imagine, I must tell you. Specially now! If you see anything about Brazilian politics now you will know what I mean. Talking about this is not a good idea sometimes. Sad, right? At least I have not such problems in my family :)

But you are totally right! Saying there's something sexual about your photo makes no sense, for example. There's something funny and strange about it, but only this. Well, I particularly see nothing so "disturbing and shocking" . These many filters for mature content drive me crazy sometimes too. Sometimes I ask my friends if they see something "inappropriate" in a work of mine before I submit it just to be sure I'm not ignoring something in it. It's difficult when we know there's nothing "wrong" with it and some people stil think there is... Anyway, we try to do our best XD

Yes, you understand it the same way! It's like 19th century England but where bikini is a normal thing :D

I'd say most of the people i know would think Brazilians are pretty open minded, especially about body.
Actually we don't get too much news about foreign politics, except then it affects eu somewhat. Or maybe i'm just trying to be as far from politics as i can ^^;

it's just i don't want to offend anyone with my art by 'making' people see it. So the filter on its own is a good idea. BUT i think it doesn't work properly :D

"It's like 19th century England but where bikini is a normal thing" is the best thing I've read recently hahaha Love it! And I'm really glad to know we understand this whole situation in the same way :) It means we are not alone, and this is very good!

Yes, we also believed that most Brazilians were more open-minded, but we are discovering these days that things are much different. What you say about our bodies is correct, though. I was not talking about this issue, but thanks for pointing it out ;) Anyway, things are absolutely crazy, you have no idea! I don't exactly know how often people talk about my country in foreigner newspapers etc, but it's good to know it. I just won't talk about it here because it's not the proper place to do so, don't worry. It was only part of my argumentation ;) I myself try to avoid politics as much as possible, but now we can't run from it here :/ But we are always making jokes about those serious issues, so it all does not look so bad sometimes XD

I guess this idea of "don't want to offend anyone" and at the same time "the filter does not work properly" summarizes very well the situation. I don't have a good solution or suggestion on how could these filters work better than now, but at least we do what we believe it's best :)

Down with the opressing system!! But as you stated it might be more related to stupidity or lazzyness than actual opression.
