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?
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.
1. There are LGBT admins on here. 2. I don't buy the discrimination thing. I've seen m/m pictures on here. 3. Way to out yourself to site. I'm pretty sure those pictures in your gallery don't belong to you.
Maturity warnings don't do a thing if the picture violates the site's rules You can't just post whatever you want. You DID read the rules, right? I have them down pat so I don't have to deal with a bunch of jibber-jabber.
We discriminate all the time. When you hug your friend but refuse to hug a stranger, you're discriminating against the stranger. When an employer hires a more capable person over his less-capable adversary, he is discriminating.
right? CLEARLY dA has a problem with gay people and not, you knows, kids drawn in sexual situations. which is extremely frowned upon in the US. which deviantART is based in. NOPE. it's because they hate gay people.
When will people learn that they need to provide links and credibility to back up their claims? I'm sure you know 'a bunch' of people this has happened to, and 'several' incidences that were completely out of line. That means nothing to anybody without any proof.
Go back. Read the site rules. They probably broke at least one of them. If not, then you can go to the help desk and question the action.
I love when this comes up. There are tons of openly gay dA admins, but that never seems to matter, they're definitely homophobes because someone's friend of a friend had their artwork deleted and is definitely not lying about why.
