Offensive stamp

464 Favourites
If you are easily offended by nudity, blood, violence and sexual content, telling me to stop won't make the world a better place. It makes you look like a moralfag. I can understand if the art depicts bigotry in a positive light or an image of a character beating up a characterization of a real person, but if you're blowing the whistle on something just because you can see labia or a flaccid dick, you're only making a fool of yourself.

This site isn't an X-rated paradise, teens should be able to browse without seeing offensive content.
No shit, sherlock. That's why we have the "mature tag".

What about porn?
Just report it. If you happen to find underage nudes, those are also against the site's rules. Child porn is a huge no-no and the police can get involved if necessary.

FAQ #696: How does deviantART comply with COPPA?
FAQ #23: What are deviantART's policies on nudity?
FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be?

Are you saying I'm stupid for feeling offended?
Kinda, but it depends on the piece and your reaction. You're still entitled to feel bad, but you can't shut up an artist. That violates free speech.

What about violence towards women?
Is it really a bad thing if someone draws women getting beaten up? The awful thing about this is that people assume misogyny is always connected to it, yet almost nobody cares if it's a guy getting his ass kicked. Correlation does NOT equal causation.

But (insert piece) is really offensive, take it down!
Nope. Not unless it violates deviantart's rules. I'm not here to service YOU specifically. Nobody is. Look for stuff you like instead.

What about nazi/communist/other potentially offensive ideology themed art?
I have no problem as long as it's not blatant hate art. Before you report art for expressing opinions you strongly disagree with, make sure you read the FAQ concerning what dA considers to be "hate art".

FAQ #303: I'm offended by something I saw on the website!
FAQ #12: deviantART doesn't allow 'Hate Art', 'Hate Speech' or 'Hate Propaganda', what is this?

Ew, your tone disgusts me!
Being blunt does NOT equal being rude. I refuse to sugarcoat anything unnecessarily.

yeah okay i can agree with HALF of this. If someone was to draw something offensive to a specific race, religion, etc. I think someone has a reason to be offended. I get it if its like some fetish art, but seriously..

People should be able to draw what they want.. Just as long as they actually put a mature tag on their stuff if it's inappropriate.

This is, in my opinion, a pretty admirable feat; you did defend yourself well, while also giving very good reasons and saying that there is a limit. 
I'm terribly sorry if people have done this to you before. But I am glad you still handled it in a very mature and reasonable manner.

Nobody will. And if you go onto their page or their pictures saying "I'm offended" they're likely to draw said thing even more. That's just human psychology.
