Of course they aren't, I agree with you on that, but I'm pretty sure nsfw folders are more there in case, for example, a kid's browsing and they suddenly come across an out-of-the-blue nude artwork while their parents or teacher's standing behind them. No matter how artistic the nudity's gonna be, there's a high chance the adult won't see it that way and get mad at the kid. It's shitty, but it's more of a safety thing. That's why it stands for "not safe for work." Besides, nsfw isn't just for things deemed sexual. the term tends to also cover over things that aren't safe to be caught looking at in many situations, such as blood/gore, and, you guessed it, nudity. I personally don't agree that it should be unsafe for work but sadly, that's the way it is. Anyway, those are just my thoughts on the subject, you don't have to agree with me.
This is really not the best place to patronize me. Even if you didn't mean to, you don't even know the context of what I'm talking about and you just jumped to conclusions as to what I was talking about. And to be honest, you come off like you don't even care about the context and you just wanted to take this moment to impart some really obvious lesson about something I have extensive knowledge on as an artist who functions online. I sort of need to know what constitutes as NSFW, otherwise I would've been in hot water for not tagging things appropriately, which I've never experienced.
The image in question was completely clothed, and literally just has a perked nipple underneath that clothing. Nothing is inherently sexual about a perked nipple when the person is completely clothed, and if they were NSFW teachers would get fired for getting hard nipples in a cold classroom, which is literally the most ridiculous thing to even imply.
In the context, you kind of come off as a jerk when you're clearly trying to explain to me what NSFW is despite not even knowing what the hell drawing or art I'm even talking about. It's really, really rude and patronizing, and I don't know how you didn't realize that when typing this entire thing out to try and educate me.
"this picture turns me on so I MUST categorize it as NSFW" sounds like the train of thought going on or something of the like >> jesus nipples aren't sexual, just because the fetish for them and boobs in general is VERY widespread doesn't mean they're inherently sexual.
I'm just freaking stunned, the picture is so non-sexual it's like they were going out of their way to MAKE it sexual. Nitpicking to find anything to categorize it as sexual. Everyone has nipples, and everyone's nipples get erect for reasons completely irrelevant to arousal or sex. I know that without a doubt the way people sexualize breasts has negatively affected the way people see natural anatomy. And they forget that there's a difference between natural anatomy and sex.
I withdrew my art from that group immediately. I have no patience for that kind of gross mentality, and there are hundreds of anthro art groups that won't pull that shit on me.
