BETTER: Stop Posting Suicide On dA

:iconsteph-team:
Steph-Team Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm sorry about my first form thread. I'll agree, that form thread is a piece of shit and was rushed to get it on there (not to mention I was tired as fuck writing it). This is the better version of that form.

As I was looking around art that is on dA, suicide pictures and stuff that dealt with it kept on popping up. It angered me, for this art is promoting self harm. So, instead of doing nothing I made this form that is against suicide. Feel free to comment for or against suicide, but please keep it clean. All hate comments will be ignored.

If you're so sensitive about it go back to Tumblr.

Art doesn't just deal with shiny happy subject matter. Art can be an expression of what someone feels inside or it can be social commentary or an encapsulation of a wider issue whether to raise awareness of simply create something based on a part of the human condition. You don't have to like or look at art which reflects concepts that don't personally appeal to you, but it doesn't mean that other people shouldn't be free to create it and display their work.

Bi is a term for people who engage in sex with both man and woman. It does not mean same sex.

Isn't it obvious?

He's a homophobic shit-monkey and wants gay people to die. Preferably by suicide, since it saves him the trouble of murder. That being said, he probably thinks the English language is "gay", hence the brutality and animosity toward it.

Hmm. Seems that this is an unknown issue to me.
Well, to get my opinion through... Maybe, just maybe, ignore the actions of people posting work about suicide. It is their own action and should not be taken personally by passerbys.
Sure, I care about people in general, but in certain cases there is no point in forcing opinions. Just let it go and ignore possible future postings.
Heed my advise if you will, but if not, it is your choice. Don't force your opinion and ignore the people that force their's.
Enough for now, ~Future-Luke

Thanks.

But I have to say, just as much as others on the forum are posting that you are forcing your opinion, that are forcing their own on the same amount.

This is an issue that will no sooner be solved than the issue of warfare, and for that I don't believe anyone here has the right to force an opinion towards or against the artwork based upon suicide.

~And for anyone that may be reading this and feels the need to 'troll' me, go ahead. Small unnecesary words such as 'prick' and 'puss' will never once reach through me. Never. If any person dares be offended what you commenters say towards others, then they are just as lowly as the commenters themselves. YOU ARE NOT HARMING US. I don't know what gives you the slight inclination to post hate towards others, whether it be that you are actually offended, or just because you feel as though making someone's life a living hell is okay. Please, just stop! It's enough to try and hurt the people that can take the pain, but to those who can't... you are hurting them more than you imagine.

~Besides that, I feel as thouh I have said enough on this topic and hopefully the madness of refutes stops soon.
I have seen enough today.

You have a very sheltered and immature (in my opinion) view of censorship. Some of that can be forgiven due to your age, but not all... also due to your age. If we tried to rid the internet of everything that *might* offend SOMEONE then there would be no internet.

we just need to keep eye on the pictures that pretty much say "Go kill yourself, It's the answer"

Okay. Why. Are those pictures going to sneak out at night and drink daddy's liquor behind the tool shed? Are they going to cheat on their taxes? Are they alien spies in disguise? What reason could there possibly be to "keep an eye" on those pictures?

Well, other than the obvious in that they're visual images and are meant to be looked at. Wait, did you just say we should look at those pictures, and you are in fact asking a demand for them? Wow, you just betrayed yourself. You're bad at this.

A self-righteous prick with a "just" cause is compelled to believe they have authority over others.

And a self-righteous prick has to force that prick down somebody's throat, or else there isn't much of a cause to spread (like AIDS), now is there?

Ignoring problems doesn't make them go away. Anyone who posts their own desires to end their lives is merely asking for help, and you're trying to shun them? To further make them feel bad? You want all those people to be alone, to not even be able to seek comfort online, what a selfish asshole.

Also, theseare called FORUMS. With a "u", dumbass.

There are sites to post stuff like that, this is not one of them. There are other ways to talk your feelings out without making a bit deal about it like I've seen lately.

and I understand it's spelled forums

I wasn't aware that you were deviantART's CEO! Nice to meet you. If it fits within the TOS and policies, it stays, simple as that. Nobody cares about you being a whiny overly sensitive kid who can't bare to look at suicide related imagery, go be a sheltered puss puss somewhere else, girl.

You're not very good at lying, are you? If you were just doing what you claim you are doing, then you wouldn't be telling people "what belongs" and "what doesn't". You would in fact be taking no action at all. That's the whole point of observing; you just watch, and nothing more.

Also, the "it was a social experiment the whole time!" trick doesn't work here. Too many idiots before you tried to use it as a way to defend their holier-than-thou attitudes, and it didn't even work for them. And they had more subtlety than you did. That being said, you had no idea at all that it was spelled "forum" (and that "thread" was the right word anyway) before multiple people corrected you. "I meant to do that" is never convincing.

You know, there is no shame in admitting that you have the education and mental capacity of a rejected science lab monkey that downed a bunch of pills because it couldn't handle the difficulty of the public school system.

well maybe in that moment, that is what that person was thinking to him or herself. Besides if you draw the line there, there would be many other things that should be banned as well, no more art about heartaches, no more art about the pain of losing someone dear, pretty much ban everything that's not cheerfull and colourfull.
Also, noone's forcing anyone to look at art they find depressing. If you don't like something, just scroll past it and go on with your life? For some people it might really be important to get those feelings out.
In the end, art IS about expressing your feelings, wether those be happy or sad feelings.

but people can think for themselves, and someone with a normal happy life won't be influenced by something like that at all. If certain people specifically would be actually bullying people that way, there's still the block function, you could unwatch them, or simply report the person. It's no reason to ban ALL suicide related art though. Just like those few assholes that post porn on here are no reason to ban all artistic nude.
