DeviantArt is a site that of course is open to many forms of "art" that expands from the most popular or innocent to the most controversial and extreme. It should remain a bastion of freedom and individual creativity for all and anybody. However, movements for censorship that have been seen with other social media sites and websites in general have already infiltrated the algorithms and core of most creationist sites, especially in the arts. Failure of these sites comes at the fact that rather oppose the silencing of others and ban of content, they rather embolden them to carry on. It is a sign of the internal bias that those that have monitored or managed said sites have implemented for the sake of "feelings" or personal views, biased and faulty as they are. No longer do the motto's of "openness and tolerance" apply to sites that clearly favor a specific cultural and political view over another, applauding artwork that fits said agenda's while blocking or harassing the creators that publish artwork of different viewpoints. It is ironic that said rules and behavior destroys the very environments that said policy's seek to create. Nobody should care about one's physical traits, skin color, gender etc. in the realm of creativity. These things do not matter in the context of an artist. What should matter is the Diversity of opinions, ideas, and thoughts in general. What good is there being an artist if you cannot speak or express your mind? When people converse, it is always present that there is the possibility of somebody being offended no matter what somebody says. Otherwise the ultimate sum of all this censorship and favoritism is simply mob rule and the inability to express oneself for fear of the totalitarian rules being inflicted upon them. This is a note that should apply to both sides of the political isle, no matter what the bias is.
In other words, do unto others as they do unto you. So be careful for what you wish for
