Letter to DeviantArt (shorter version):

Your ban on images containing erections is based upon a misunderstanding of the difference between art and porn, and therefore; this particular ban and act of removal is unnecessary. The mature filter is sufficient to censor nudity: Erect, flaccid, and otherwise. As a DA fan, I have viewed many deviations in the past that contained erections while remaining tasteful and artistic. They were rightfully filed into the "artistic nude" category, along with deviations containing flaccid phalluses and nude women. Whether the phallus is flaccid, erect, or anywhere in between, has NOTHING to do with whether the deviation is porn or art. Some pornography contains flaccid penises, some sensual art contains erect penises, and vice-versa. An erection is NOT the defining or dividing factor. Erect phalluses are only ever offensive when depicted in tasteless porn, drawn as graffiti, doodled in an inappropriate context, or sent without solicitation. Please reconsider your ban.

Dear DeviantArt: Erect penises on DA are often artistic, NOT offensive.

Whether the phallus is flaccid, erect, or anywhere in between, has NOTHING to do with whether the deviation is porn or art.

Your ban on and removal of images containing erections is based upon a misunderstanding of the difference between art and porn, and therefore; this particular ban and act of removal is unnecessary. The mature filter is sufficient to censor nudity: Erect, flaccid, and otherwise.

As a DA fan, I have viewed many deviations in the past that contained erections while remaining tasteful and artistic. They were rightfully filed into the "artistic nude" category, along with deviations containing flaccid phalluses and nude women. To reiterate: Whether the phallus is flaccid, erect, or anywhere in between, has NOTHING to do with whether the deviation is porn or art. Some pornography contains flaccid penises, some sensual art contains erect penises, and vice-versa. An erection is NOT the defining or dividing factor. Erect phalluses, just like flaccid ones, are only ever offensive when depicted in tasteless porn, drawn as graffiti, doodled in an inappropriate context, or sent as a picture, .gif, or video without solicitation. Please reconsider your ban.

P.S. There is some content on your platform that is actually worthy of removal and banning: Images stolen from porn sites. Some deviants upload other photographers' images and seemingly pretend they are their own creation, which is called click theft. I will provide several examples within a comment on this status update (if uploading content that does not belong to you is NOT against DA rules, please tell me, and I will not single them out). It would be wise of you to redirect your focus to actual offenses.

Sincerely,

SirManDude
