Hey! I made a spooky ghost for you guys!
gonna keep my wrist wrapped in a hot pack all night tonight, that helped oodles earlier
More fluff lords to your dash~!
I posted my latest sketches to my lifedrawing group’s FB page and someone reported them for nudity. They didn’t get deleted because “Since it doesn’t violate this community standard, it was not removed.” Which I thought was unexpectedly tolerant of FB.
But I went and checked which of the drawings were reported…. yep, the ones with the penises. Really, people?
I just don’t get it. The FB group is by invite only, so who in the group is being offended by my (admittedly dodgily drawn) penises? Are these the same people that actually go to lifedrawing sessions? What do they do when they see a real life penis? Faint?
That was my experience with dA, to be honest, and it’s the reason I left. People can post “artistic nudes” of naked ladies with their heads or faces cropped out of the image and the mods will serve up tits for the Daily Deviation at least twice a week, but the moment you post a dick, ohhhhhh no, that’s unacceptable.
Like, not even erect dicks. Flaccid ones, like it says in the dA rules. The second someone reports that shit, if you posted a dick, you’re gone.
But on dA it’s not even just boobs. It’s full frontal labia. It really highlights the sexist snottiness in certain people minds that a nude women (legs maybe spread if you’re feeling particularly “artistic”) is fine but flaccid penis…..ooooooooooooohhh no can’t have THAT!
Well, this is what I was going to mention, to be honest. You can straight up post pictures of your flange on dA and everyone will think that’s fine and dandy. Not so if you post your cock, it seems.
Honestly, I doubt that it’s even snottiness so much as dA being full of people who will happily leave things unreported if those things are things that they can fap to, but then kicking up a fuss if the kind of junk they don’t like gets posted anywhere.
Maybe I’ll photoshot in a boob in place of the willy cos boobs are fine to post apparently.
Now we can all sleep at night.
