I Just Can't Look Away by jollyjack I Just Can't Look Away by jollyjack

Are you aware of what the word “Deviant” means?
Then you can’t complain about content.

Is the “show mature content” box ticked in your DeviantArt browsing setting?
Then you can’t complain about content.

Rather than just moving on, do you keep returning to the section of the gallery where an image you think offensive is found?
Then you can’t complain about content.

OMG, Jollyjack drew boobs and stuff?! How dare he! Now I'm going to b*tch, whine, and stamp my feet because one image on the internet hurt my deilcate wittle feelings.

...Nobody f*cking cares if you're offended, and apparently nobody informed you that you're opinion is not that f*cking important.

I still love the cynical hamster, does he have a name?

To be honest, I wouldn't either coz I have too much respect for the character. But if they're complaining about it then they just need to move along, people should be allowed to draw whatever they want! :D

It's ur responsibility as an internet user what content u focus on .. don't resent the options just because u have different tastes in media and art .. I'm starting to get sick of the over use and abuse if the term OFFENDED .. I'm glad when people can say or think or express something different than what I would have because that makes the world more interesting .. not that I'm boring but how selfish would I have to be to limit everyone else to my ideas and preferences .. let's let peeps be peeps peeps..

Maybe here's what's going on, at least some of the time: A person is drawn by the sexual content. We're sexual creatures, most of us are drawn by sexual contant and we can't help that. But then the actual image clashes with the way they view themselves; maybe just  because it's sexy and they were brought up thinking sex is dirty, but it could be for any number of reasons a particular piece offends. And yet they can't deny the draw despite their conditioning. So now the image is making them feel uncomfortable about themselves, which quickly turns to anger. If the image wasn't there, they think, then they wouldn't have felt this confusing and unpleasant way in the first place.
I'm not saying anyone should stop uploading the sexy stuff - god no! I'm just wondering about what's behind this particular behaviour. Though annoying, it may be a little understandable, and a little sad.

Wow JJ, you really know how to 'illustrate' a point. :D

One of the things I like most about posts like this (regardless of their content or message) is how vehemently people will argue their OPINION on the freaking INTERNET! I'll read the post, view the image, consider whether or not it is something I feel like commenting on... and then I take a few minutes just scrolling through the comments and seeing how far I get before I start developing "eye-roll" strain.

An opinion on the internet is about as useful as a glass of water at the bottom of the ocean. But, of course, this is just my glass of water at the bottom of the ocean. I don't post to start a fight, I post with a casual observation. Why waste precious moments of your life deliberately looking at something you don't like? I do not enjoy Death Metal Concerts, so I will not go to one. So many people (on the internet as a whole) seem to attend the concert, waste the 4-6 hours that it may run, just so they can complain about how terrible it was. I'm sorry, but I would rather spend my time (which is more precious than money to a lot of people) doing something I actually like. And if, for some horrible reason, what you like is getting into flame wars on the internet... *sigh* please find another outlet. Justifying your existence by pissing off another person is really sad.

But, I will leave you holding your glass of water as I walk away with mine. :D

*READS DESCRIPTION* Those...are all fair points. Though I always thought the "Deviant" in "Deviantart" was meant to "Deviate" from conventional artistic norms and traditional ways of thinking, or something

sorry, but guess what snowflake...I did the same thing. Express my opinion.


Get it yet?
It is apparent enough yet?


I came, expressed my opinion just as you did, pointing out your own hypocrisy.

I have that (lets quote you) "YOU KNOW? THAT GOD GIVEN RIGHT TO HUMANS FOR THEM TO DECIDE WHAT THEY LIKE?"

You purposefully came to a work you disagreed with just to disagree with it.

the EXACT same thing the woman in the picture did.

To those -still- wishing to try and hammer about "that style of art"...its body shaming. Its denoting someone of a certain physique isnt "normal or real". To sat the overtly voluptuous is disgusting in her open sexuality due to her "not being real" is as shaming as saying a bbw is disgusting. We get the "REAL women do not look like that" yes...yes they do. and they are thin and big and tiny and lumpy and smooth and tall and short and have hanging bits and tight bits and every imaginable thing in between. If you are CHOOSING to actively look at certain works, do not go and complain it was there for you to sit, stare at, flip back too, link back to, etc when YOU are actively choosing to do it. no one is  behind your screen with a gun to your head FORCING you to view it....if they are then you have a WHOLE different issue to deal with anyway

I agree with the sentiment. I actually do not have the "Show mature content" ticked so that I can chose to see what I want, when I click on the button then it's all on me.

What I find dA to be completely hypocritical of is if what's being shown is artistic male nude, dA will pull it far more easily than if it were a nowhere-near-artistic T&A/C shot.


Edit: A friend linked to this in a FB post and that's how I came across it. I do like your drawing style though. :)

There is one sentiment here I disagree with, I'm not bothered by a little tits and ass cause I think those are good things but I don't wanna see low quality work (your work is obviously not a part of that category). That being said, I don't see why that should bother her so much. The work she's whining about actually looks really good. Maybe not anatomically perfect but still visually appealing.

The censors take all the fun away from us.
