In Asia, 16 years old is pretty much legal in many countries including mine.
I REALLY can relate on how Asian artists here (including my friends) got disgruntled over DA rules.

However, I can't really do much as I know that DA is created and located in the U.S. which has different rules and cultures.

As an american, I can testify that is indeed the case. Nudity and sex is more of a taboo here than in other parts of the world [sure, you can show gratuitous violence and use foul language, but god help you if you show a nipple! :P]; another example is alcohol. In France, parents teach children to drink responsibly and in moderation; but here, it's "ALCOHOL IS BAD! OH WAIT, YOU'RE 21?! OKAY, YOU CAN GO BINGE DRINK!" :/

It's because of a dangerous mix of old-school religious bible-thumping [*hercough*christians*hercough*] & moral guardians [and the entitled generation of social justice warriors they bred] who'll shriek "THINK OF THE CHILDREN! WE MUST SHIELD FROM EVERYTHING!"

...'course, I was raised with good sensible parents who gave me a book about reproduction when I was a toddler instead of lying bullshit about the stork; let me watch Jurassic Park at age 2; and were quite honest about how to drink and smoke responsibly.

Oh, looks like every place in earth has its own weirness, eh?

Yeah, sometimes I see so many contradicting things there (no offense), like violence and swear words are everyday stuff but you can't post a sexy image of highschoolers (I mean like, teen pregnancy is real, so why can't I show 'em a piece of the hard truth, and hey, birth control stuff exists so there must be naughty kids out there).

Difference of cultures, man. Can't complaint much on that segment but I just can't help to talk a bit about it.

The only choice is too look for a place online where people can do stuff with less restraints.

That one's a plan of mine, but I'm currently posting on pixiv for a while right now. Managing stuff on many sites is gonna be tiring so I tried to focus on one site besides DA for now.
Too bad pixiv is not a good place to look for feedbacks or critics, as the majority of users there have this unwritten policy of "be quiet and enjoy", and the silence kinda kills the fun.
