As long as you tag it, you're fine. by MaudeDraws As long as you tag it, you're fine. by MaudeDraws
The full title should be "As long as you tag it nsfw so the Safe Search won't pick it up, you're fine"

Anyways, this is probably an unpopular opinion on here and on Tumblr.

The reason I made this stamp is mainly due to me seeing some people complaining about the amount of Zootopia and Splatoon porn that's popped up recently. Now, if you don't like rule 34, that's fine. But it's not the end of the world if you see porn of your favorite movie or cartoon.

The thing that most people neglect to remember is that reverse psychology is a thing. If someone was to tell someone not to draw rule 34 because they don't like it and don't want to see it, that someone's still probs going to draw it anyway because they like drawing it, or someone might see you complaining and draw it out of spite (the former, however, is likely more common). You can't restrict someone's creative freedom, no matter what. All you can do is hope people tag their nsfw and hopefully not in the fandom's main tag.

Another thing that people forget is that rule 34 is NOT exclusive to those new shows, etc., that are popular at the moment (ex. My Little Pony, Steven Universe, Splatoon, Zootopia, Animal Crossing, I could go on), nor is it exclusive to kids' shows. As long as there's no porn popping up in the Safe Search results in image search engines and on Tumblr, you're ok.

But there will still be people out there who keep safe search off by default, and what if their kid sees porn of their fav show in an image search? First of all, if you have a kid, you should have safe search turned on and NOT off, so that's an irresponsible move on your part. Second of all, you should ALWAYS supervise your kids when they want to look something up on Google. Your computer is NOT your child's babysitter, so don't treat it like it is. That's the issue with parents nowadays, so don't be that parent.

Finally, your child's going to find out about sex in some way or another. Granted, rule 34 isn't the best way to find out about it, especially since there's such a thing as crappy porn drawings. Then again, neither is porn in general. But if your child finds out about sex at some point, it's probably time to give them "the talk", but be sure you do so in a way that your child will understand and be ready for. We really need to become more comfortable with teaching our children about sexuality and stop with the abstinence only crap because that doesn't help anyone. :no:

But back to the main point of the stamp. As long as someone isn't posting art that spreads hateful, bigoted, or otherwise harmful attitudes or behaviors, you don't have to worry. Ignore the rule 34 if you don't like it, report any porn that creeps into the safe search image results, remind people to tag their r34, and make sure kids don't see it. Don't let this become MLP 2.0. Also, Tumblr seriously needs a thing that keeps the safe search setting locked on if their members are under 18. dA has something like that, so why not Tumblr?

TL;DR: You don't have to like rule 34, but don't limit others' artistic freedoms because you don't like it. Just make sure they tag their shit.

This stamp was made using zilla774's stamp template. It's right here:…

I hate rule 34 bc that was the actuall reason why my childhood is gone,but i'm not gonna act like a 5 year old telling them to stop
yudrontheglatorian Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
i think telling them NOT to do it only encourages them more.

reverse psychology.

Sometimes rule 34 can be really sexy.
TrutenFan12 Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2017  Student Digital Artist
I'm okay with r34 along it not milf or pedophile.

i blame the dbz fandom for it.
MaudeDraws Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You mean loli/shota or cub. Pedophile is a person attracted to irl kids, not a catagory.
TrutenFan12 Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2017  Student Digital Artist
Yeah. Basically.
Don’t like seeing shota and lolis with adults.
JimmyTwoTimes2K9 Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2017  Student Traditional Artist
I only go on Rule34 just for Daria.

I agree with you. It's like buying games like "Call of Duty", "Overwatch", "The Witcher 3" and "Hotline Miami" for your children and them complaining that violent games should be banned because they make children grow too much "rebel" and "violent".
I mean, what sense does this make ? Nazare Tedesco - Emoticon

Instead of letting your TV, game consoles or PC be your babysitter, why not be there when they need your guidance on life, so, you won't need to "resort" to such devices which may become more a trouble than anything else ?

It's much easier to change your behavior and attitudes than ask the world to conform to your needs and tastes, don't you think ?

They hate porn fan art because they think kids could find it.
Meanwhile everyone is okay with gore fan arts...

I like to joke with NSFW stuff because my parents never watched what I search up now.
axris Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2016  Student General Artist
if the character's over 18 and someone tells me not to draw porn of them, i'll probably start doing it just to spite them
memocha Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2016
the last time i did was over a year ago bc i got lazy
even if i did i'd keep it private and not post it publicly

I'm not a fan of R34 but I know that you can't stop it.

I get hated for drawing Transformice porn (only drew two) and I've been trying to get Paheal to delete it. Though the staff are fucking assholes.

I draw Osomatsu-san rule 34 instead. lol
Redtriangle Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2016  Student Digital Artist
I know I don't. I have no reason to draw Rule 34, second, I'm not good enough at drawing.

Strange, when I look at rule 34 JudyxNick ship art, I find their romance more satisfying than their sex together.
Simmeh Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2015
Hahaha. I purposely look at rule 34. It doesn't bother me any. :XD: I don't encourage nor discourage it.

I draw sexual stuff like that, and I always have the fear with people hating on it, I'm glad you made this stamp
MaudeDraws Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have that fear when it comes to shipping and fanfiction. Then again, I don't read much fanfiction, but I love shipping for the hell of it. I also can't stand people who shame others for their kinks, no matter how "problematic" some may be. It just rubs me the wrong way.
xXThe-Hetalian-JetXx Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
Yup, because one time I got called out by 3 of my watchers just for posting sexual content of my OTP, but we are friends now tho.
HG-The-Hamster Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2015  Student Digital Artist
People grow a hissy fit over me doing rule 34 myself of course I never upload it to the internet for personal reasons, but when I meantion I do they get so angry, like what? I can draw my toads (mind you they are all over 18 you can even look at their refs) nude? Like how does this offend you? so I can't practice at drawing and get better, is that what you want?  when I used to upload them nude I would get on SO many bad-art blogs they eventually my father told me just to delete the drawings so you won't be featured on there again and keep drawing what I want.
Shade-Wolf-Buizel Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I see people complain about porn of something more than actual porn of the thing
redzombie88 Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2015
one of the best stamps i've seen!!! i totally agree whit you, i have soo many friends whit soo many tastes, and i hate how other people try to stop them drawing what they like!!! i learned to respect other people tastes no matter what being rule 34 or not, i dont get people looking for porn and complaining the mature filtter is for some reason, but most of them they want to see people reaction that's why they leave very agressive comments... that's why i dont reply them, they just keep coming and coming or worse, they bring all their husband wifes to attack you as well @_@ but i agree whit letting people draw what they want :3
MaudeDraws Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Some on Tumblr just don't want to see porn in the tags, which is understandable, but inevitable. Though this one 16 year old girl on there complained in the tags about the Zootopia porn, saying she doesn't care if it's tagged and was like "who's going to turn on safe search?" or something like that. She seemed pretty hostile about it. For all I know, she's probably bitching about it for the sake of bitching. :facepalm:

Most of the time, you'll find it hard to find porn of a series with safe search off without scrolling down the image search results for about an hour or so. I'm not sure if the mlp search was filled with porn or not before the Safe Search Wrap-Up thing started (that was a movement the fandom started to report porn that ended up in safe search. Someone in the Steven Universe fandom made a similar thing), but there's no porn in the safe search results now, and I don't really see porn of it in the unfiltered search that much anyway. Same with Steven Universe. I guess it depends on the person searching and what their search history is. Idk.
redzombie88 Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2015
yeah most people put the mature filtter only a few not, i think tumblr and furaffinity are hidding their pages from google ^^; sometimes i cannot find certain users
MaudeDraws Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah. And yet, nobody's happy. It's like a moral crusade or something. I just hope the Zootopia fandom doesn't get as obnoxious as the mlp fandom back when everyone was worried about cloppers.
VampiraLady Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
very interesting thoughts. I have never suspect that on dA are any links or sources connecting with rule 34, even if I mean only people talking about this or sending info in notes.

As well, you said nice things about teaching children. Yes, some people just don't have the ability to talk with kids about sex. (Funny, because mostly these kids 'were made' from sex, pardon my words).

Btw, you English is really good.
MaudeDraws Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks. And English is my first language after all. :)
I wish there were more places, especially in my area, where parents can take sex ed classes. Around here, the sex ed in public schools are likely terrible and in Christian schools, it's all abstinence only. And if safe sex practices are brought up, they always bring up the failure rate, saying premarital sex will bring you pain, etc. At least, it was like that from my experience.

If parents receive proper sex ed, it would make it a bit easier to teach kids, and likely more comfortable with teaching kids as well. I mean, people in Europe don't have this issue as much. How can things be so sexualized in American media despite the puritanical beliefs on sexuality?

It's mostly on Tumblr where people complain about rule 34, especially since there are underage teens that don't keep safe search on.
