Unjust Discrimination

:icondani-jones:
Dani-Jones Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012
It's been brought to my attention (SEVERAL TIMES) that there is unlawful discrimination happening by the Admins of DA. Even though many pictures are labeled with mature warnings of many sorts, they are still deleted from the site. A prime example are the male-on-male sketches and pictures. Many have been deleted by a select artist, YET, her female-on-female portraits have not been touched. Such disgusting discrimination.

I thought this was a place where we could all come to express and display our art. Not have it thrown off of the site because one chauvinistic Admin was offended.

Please fix this error, and restore DeviantART to its former glory.

All right, people. It's really not fair to attack Dani based on the sole fact that she's merely trying to solve a problem.

Let's take a step back and review said problem, shall we? "Even though many pictures are labeled with mature warnings of many sorts, they are still deleted from the site. A prime example are the male-on-male sketches and pictures. Many have been deleted by a select artist, YET, her female-on-female portraits have not been touched."

For those of you who for some reason don't understand these statements, let me put it simply. An admin has deleted an artist's yaoi work, but not her yuri work. Let's just take a moment to assume that this particular artist's artwork is very tasteful and unoffensive. Doesn't that smell a bit fishy, that the man-on-man art is deleted and not the woman-on-woman? Doesn't that just scream prejudice?

It just so happens to be in the Complaint section because it's a--surprise!--complaint. Go figure!

:icongtfoplz: Go outside and take a look at the sign. The one that says Complaints. Then read what it says under that. The part about not expecting anything to change :unimpressed:

Just because a person shouldn't expect a change to happen shouldn't mean that a change isn't possible.

I rather doubt there is any sort of discrimination going on here. In all likelihood what happened is the pieces in question violated the rules and the users just jumped to the conclusion that there was discrimination instead of - shock! horror! - a rules violation.

If it breaks the rules, it's going to be taken down. If it doesn't break the rules, it will stay up. What is so hard for you to understand about this?
