Controversial Material, Sexual Harassment, and Self-Censorship

:iconhumanknotgirl:
humanknotgirl Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
Yesterday's fiasco should not have happened. And while this is fanning a fire, I am a little fucking livid right now.

Yes, I know that I had an image on my account that could be construed as sexual. No, I did not expect for that image to be spammed across half the threads on this board, for numerous sex jokes to be made, or for people to go to my account page to continue to harass me with said jokes. That's what you would call "taking things too far."

Contortion is something I have always been really passionate about. It makes sense that I would put up photos relating to it on my gallery. But why in the fuck do some of you feel the need to shit on that? How is that fair?

Look. I love most of the people on this board because most of you guys are nice people. I get along with a good lot of you, and I do my best to abide by the unwritten customs of Complaints. If I make a mistake, I try to own up to it; I try not to pin the blame on others.

However, there are some people here (and you know who you are) whose attacks were uncalled for and crossed the line horrendously. Seriously, fuck you, grow up and stop being perverted pieces of shit. Or if you're going to be perverted pieces of shit, then go /b/ because they'd love to have you.

I've taken the "sexual" pieces down because of the rampant bullshit. Personally, I think having to do that is pretty terrible. Why should I have to censor myself and what I'm passionate about just to avoid being seen as a sex object? Seriously.

If she would have lurked more to begin with, maybe she would have thought twice about joining. Makes more since than saying "WELL COMPLAINTS USED TO BE THIS WAY" as an excuse.

You say you don't understand why people get upset when their art is made fun of, but when your photos get made fun of, you likewise get upset. As shown by this thread.

' That's what you would call "taking things too far."'
No, that is what happens when you post your stuff on the internet. Putting it up is like stapling it to every telephone and power pole you can find in New York City. You immediately lose any control over it.

' But why in the fuck do some of you feel the need to shit on that? How is that fair?'
Same reason people do it to everything else. The internet is not nice. And FAIR? Fair has nothing to do with it.

'Seriously, fuck you, grow up and stop being perverted pieces of shit. '
Grow up and ignore or block.

'I've taken the "sexual" pieces down because of the rampant bullshit. Personally, I think having to do that is pretty terrible.'
That's something YOU did. You didn't have to. You chose to. Way to let them win.

'Why should I have to censor myself and what I'm passionate about just to avoid being seen as a sex object?'
That's a good question. Considering YOU took your stuff down, that's up to you. Artists are SUPPOSED to be controversial. It's how you get famous.

I was late too, apparently prosaix bumped a bunch of her threads by posting a thumb with her knotting, and she's crying about it because she got super harrassed and stuff.

Which makes you wonder, just who exactly was the mass of people apparently harrassing her?
