First, read this:

transfinite.dreamwidth.org/215…

DeviantART and its mods can officially kiss the fattest part of my ass. It's one thing if various users don't care whether or not a trans person or a neutrois person or what have you can pick a valid option for their gender when asked. It's another thing entirely when you're in charge of the place, you're asked about it, you're then told why it's a problem, and then you piss all over the complaining party and can't even be bothered to apologize for not getting it.

This, on top of some depressingly inconsistent moderation (porn and hate art, anyone?) and excruciatingly irritating ad direction, is why I'm downloading all my art and leaving this account as a shell. Sorry to people who have fav'd any of my work and sorry to my watchers (although you won't be missing much anyway, I haven't updated in like a year), but deviantART clearly doesn't understand the definition of the term 'deviant' anymore.

I'm assuming they've got a marketing deal that requires a specified gender so they get more cash for ads. As a free service... I'm in two minds about it being mandatory for cash purposes; but the options being such that exclude a group of users is quite pants. DA hasn't been all that DA friendly for a while now, it's "Times Magazine" Deviant, not "Outside of Established Norms" Deviant.

Let us know where we can find your art when you've got a new place.

I may just move to FurAffinity and be done with it. I dunno.

A fair call.

DeviantArt sucks. The only serious alternative is FurAffinity... and we all know how it's filled (and with what).


So...
