Ugh. some people get way too offended by just about anything!
Apparently someone (I don't know if their claims are legit) is threating ban me from DA for my last journal entry: 8 Topics I need to discuss in 2018
, Now I know I said some horrible (and possibly true) things about DA and their staff, but it completely irks me that they'd rather protect actual rule breakers (like real pedos and art thieves) and ban artists (like those who draw shantae in a bikini, or draw disney's belle topless/nude) just because of who (or how) they draw these characters in art-fanart. and how we draw them is our own business (if we wanna age up certain characters to 18 then we should be allowed to do so as long as it artistic), now I'm totally against sexualized little kids (Teens are ok as long as its artistic), but I shouldn't be labeled a pedo just because I believe that characters 16-18 should be aged up to 18 (also, I don't consider it "cheating" at all), plus I hardly ever show nips or private bits, so maybe that'll grant me a pass hopefully. I just wish DA wouldn't label us as Pedos for for drawing cute teens in suggestive style drawings, they're not getting on the artists good graces (artists are leaving DA because of false claims of drawing underage characters suggestively). and I so wish a a completive art website could compete against DA (that didn't have these unfair rules on aging-up and mature art), because should I get banned, where will I go? (wysp isn't enough for me). DA apparently needs to change its rules and policies so we artists aren't treated like criminals, we artists bring SO much potential to DA, but we can't succeed if DA's rules on mature art silences us with their dirty censorship, I feel our fanart being censored like this isn't good for this site at all. and the artists have had it with their censorship and site changes (so no wonder I called out the staff and demand their resignations), not to mention their inconsistent actions, So I hereby Apologize for my last journal entry and what I said, however here's what will NOT change, I have made the decision to age-up any character (16-18) in all of my mature art, so plz understand my feeling on these ok, I mean no harm in doing this. (plus fictional characters shouldn't be held to real-life standards anyway).
Final notice(no pun intended):
Should I get banned (again), I Have some alt accounts I can use (I'll notify you when I get to them), so don't worry about me, and if DA tries banning them (if that happens, I'll just pull a "keemstar" and make so I'll never leave until a proper alternative to DA is found), then I'll try to find an alt site. now if nothing should happen to me, I'll have my "monthly mature pinups" (which will include original characters, nude disney princess dolls, and sailor moon cosplaydeviants) so lets hope nothing happens to me. also two more things, I just want DA to be fair in their decisions when dealing with what artists draw, we are not evil pedo artists just because we draw nudes of teen characters. and finally (and plz don't get offended by this), but I'm a STRONG believer in that 16 SHOULD be the age of consent, and that you should allowed to draw them in a mature setting, this is not just due in part to my beliefs (nor the artists) but tha fact that some US state actually allow 16 and 17 to be the age of consent. so plz don't criticize me for my beliefs, ok. ( know DA's rules, but they should have a grey area for 16-18 and allow them to be aged up, too) hope it all works out. see ya all later!
