I think cameras and equipment is too easily accessible nowadays. Too many people are just taking nudes because they can and its the only thing which will get them a lot of views on whatever profile they post it on. Happens on Facebook to unfortunately -.-
Most of society agrees that Playboys are porn. According to DA standards the photo shoots they contain are not porn. That said, the photos in playboy are more artistic than most of the "artistic nudes" on DA. I don't care what excuses you make. You are only lying to yourself.
My point is that just because you are squeamish doesn't mean people on here can't post stuff that is completely within the rules. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean others can't post/enjoy it. Sure you can complain all you want but it just comes across as bratty. If you don't like something then ignore it and move on.
I am not squeamish, if I was I would have ran screaming from the thread as soon as the kiddies started posting dicks. It's within the rules and that makes it allowed. That does not make it right. The whole complaint is about the rule in its current form.
"If you don't like something then ignore it and move on." Could you imagine if everyone had that mentality? "Don't like social injustice? Just ignore it and move on, MLK. Your dream just makes you look bratty."
People copy things all the time and as long as they aren't selling it or claiming it as theirs and provide a link to the original there are no issues. People have replicated van goh's works thousands of times as well as used pictures of celebs as reference for portraits. Copying things is essentially how many artists hone their skills
