Art Should Not Be Censored by Tsaalyo Art Should Not Be Censored by Tsaalyo
I'm passionate enough to speak out on few things, but this is one of them. If you don't like a certain piece of art, DON'T LOOK AT IT. If you report or otherwise try to take down or demean a piece of art because you personally don't approve of the subject matter, you're not an artist and you shouldn't be looking at things that artists do.

If you approve, here's this stamp for you. Feel free to use it anywhere you want. :)

In a way... that's true.

But if this applies to other arts, then this can't be right. For the most part, it shouldn't be censored... but sometimes, the art becomes very inappropriate. Now video games and TV is art, and some of these things I've seen and played is just wrong on many levels. The JP Tokyo Mew-Mew, um... this Square RPG that just escaped my mind, and some scenes in Sailor Moon S and Super S regarding Rini/Chibi-usa. I know cultural differences, but even regarding JP standards, it's just to ridiculous.

Okay, it's mostly just scripting... butwriting is art... right? Is Translation art as well?

No... I don't think so.

Mostly yes, but not all. Some HAVE to be censored because it's wrong in many levels. Some scenes in Super S and/or S (Sailor Moon) regarding Rini is wrong... it regards the bathtub...

Okay, not Super S... it's not wrong... well... maybe a bit. The Bathtub sequences with Rini and Serena did seem weird, but nothing weird happened... unless I'm blind... which I could be... or not.

but... Square-Enix's Bravery Default is the big one... some sequences with the young characters is wrong, and the localization process was most appropriate here. Skimpy clothing and innuendoes... on the under 18 age... is wrong... there is no way around that in international releases.

I firmly believe all art should not be censored, no matter how taboo or how strong the stigma against it is.

Yeah I don't like censored art either.People aren't stupid they can still tell what's going on so I really don't see the point of it.Plus it makes the art look really bad.I understand it's the DA rules so they have to cover it but if it's just nude then I don't see what's so wrong about it if they are not even doing anything.So I guess that's what cropping is for. I really like this stamp so I am going to favorite it thank you for making it!<3

I love this stamp...I really do ♥ ^^

you have no clue lol

 

you can get in trouble for posted censored drawings sometimes because of random dA people...

but people can post real life nudity and genitalia on here...

 

nudity is art so why isn't drawing it ok too?

pfft not fair just sayin'

i do agree on this. if someone is so sensative over a little skin in a professionally shot photograph then they shouldn't even be on an art site, because that indeed is ART. if someone draws the female body with elegance and beauty or the male body with feirce and carismatic features, that too is considered art.

i mostly agree a website like DA shouldn't have a censor, if i don't like something i can always skip it. for me the only exceptions for it are "triggering" material. i wish DA had a more dynamic censoring system where you could change your settings to reflect exactly what you don't wish to see automatically.
also some of the censorship is ridiculous, you can curse on DA but you can't in a stamp without it ending up censored, makes no sense to me.

lol wow, old comment is old :p and I said that because even though some people consider porn art, for obvious reasons that sort of art is not allowed on this website. So I'm just wondering where the line should be drawn here on DA

Well,this is an adult community.So,if a kid comes on here,they have been warned about the fact that there are things they may not want to see and they shouldn't be here if their under age.So,it shouldn't matter much.

:iconwickedninja667:
WickedNinja667 Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I think the line should be drawn with the Mature Content tag. If a child comes on here and tries to view something inappropriate, that's on them. Any Deviant with half a mind, will place the appropriate mature content ratings on an upload, to prevent said children from viewing said material. Anything and everything contained within the Mature Content ratings, is an Adult Community. As for material outside of the ratings, it's an open and public world, and viewers young and old should approach the site with caution, as some deviants don't have the sense to rate their work accordingly.

Yes,but even if the things not truly bad,people will say it is.Take [link] for example.It's a great peice,not truly sexual at all,and people say it is.So tell me,how do you tell if things need a filter?Because different people think differently.
