I know there is a fine line on this topic. How many naked pictures do we all have of ourselves when we are children in our parents' photo albums? The human form is art. If there is abuse or force against will of course it's not right but it doesn't make sense to only ever see pictures of naked adults!
Anyway, I am definitely over 18 and here are some artistic naked pictures [link]
i don't think this is such a big deal. first, the gap between 16 and 18 is not very large. second, the "i am only a man" comment isn't very redeeming in this situation that is supposedly being taken seriously, (which, in turn could suggest that those posing nude are perfectly capable and righteous in stating : "i am only human as well", and thus have the right and the ability to pose nude). i have not clicked on any nude ladies/children/whatever, but i know i can rely on members such as "mypantsaremissing" to find THEM ALL in his/her spare time at work/school/ in basement and notify me/others of their presence..(this alarm-ringing is certainly compensation for looking at it in the first place, no?)
I'm from the UK, and I have never heard that it is legal to pose naked at the age of 16.
But yes, underage nudity needs to be stopped.
I've never seen any of the underage art myself, and I don't want to.
One thing I respect about this site is that pictures with nudity are allowed, and (most) people are responsible enough to know what is right and wrong about the nudity in the pictures, and the age of the model.
Unlike other sites DeviantArt doesn't have a bad repuation (not that I have heard of), and I think we need to keep that, and also protect our users from the dangers of the internet.
DeviantArt should look at any complaints to do with underage nudity should be dealt with as soon as possible. To not only protect the owners of the site, but to protect the users.
><;; Okay, I know there's a thing called "artistic nudity", but what that girl has in her gallery is not artistic nudity---she is merely putting up pics of herself for I think sexual pleasures or something. And she should know the risks of putting her nude self up on dA. There could be little kids roaming the sites and have their eyes damaged from seeing that >>;
Well, you didn't report it to the help desk till the 13th and it was promptly removed a short 2 hours after that. And you are correct, we do not tolerate underage nudity, but if it is not reported correctly it takes time to find it.
I didn't even know about the existence of the help desk until the 13th, as soon as I did though it was promptly reported. And no it was not removed a short 2 hours after that, because her profile was still in existence last night. Nevertheless I thank all the other people that reported her as well and the help desk. She got what she deserved.
I agree about the underage thing, but just because someone posts nudes does NOT mean it's right for you to make naughty comments. I post mine so that they can be used to inspire other art, the nude body as an art form. i definitely don't appreciate the naughty comments i occasionally get because these people that leave them use my art in a way that i don't intend my stock to be used. Would you leave a dirty comment below Botticelli's Venus if you could do so at a museum?
I agree with you. But it's easy to see the intent when someone posts a nude picture. Pictures like yours are obviously classy and artistic, and the fact that your work is stock...would make me not say anything too naughty. It's easy for me to judge who I can say what to, and usually I'm right...it's just that in this case she was underage and that was my problem with her. You have lovely stock btw. Really. I've always had a deep appreciation for stock artists...they're how I've gotten through art school thus far.
Thank you very much, you're much too kind. I hope one day I find a girl who'll be my own personal little stock artist. I envy the people in your life who can get you to pose for them at any time, I'm sure most don't take the opportunity tho. Once again, I would like to personally thank you for being a stock artist, and I'm sure I speak for many here on DA when I say that.
Did you report them by clicking the "report policy violation" button, or by actually writing up report through the HelpDesk with links? If you did the former, it's going to be a looong time. If you did the latter, it'll take awhile, but not QUITE as long. If you already did the former and not the latter, do the latter. If I lost you somewhere here, I's sorries.
To be honest, saying "I'm only a man", doesn't really excuse you from being quite the pervert.
Want topless girls? Jesus christ, GOOGLE them, there's a big old internet out there, with as much real porn as you can shake a dick at, so I'm sorry, perving over the nudes gallery in an art site is a bit desperate.
It's not like I was..."holy fuck, i'm fuckin horny...I need to get off on DA's section of nude photographs!" I was at school...said to myself "let me check my DA for once...and right after I logged in..."boobies!!" So...like most men faced with the option of seeing boobs...I clicked it.
You keep using your gender as an excuse for being, well, crude.
I'm not the straightest tool in the box, I love the female form, but I don't go: "Good god almighty that's hot. Ehehe. I'm at school, but as soon as no one is around..." when I come across tits.
Art site. Not a site to encourage gratuitous pictures. Not a site to perv on girls, underage or otherwise.
I don't go around doing that either. It upsets me that you use that ONE single incident to back up your whole complaint. I've been on DA for years, and if I left comments like that to everyone, I would have been banned ages ago. I don't come on here to "perv" on girls but when a young lady posts a picture like she did, its obvious what she wants to hear.
yes, thats what I thought. The FAQ said nothing about different rules for each country. Seriously tho, lots of people have reported these pics...and they're still there...2 days after this thread and about a week after my first report of her.
I've never gotten why girls my age (or any age for that matter) want to show their tits off like that. Why not keep it private? Most of the time though it's little tittied girls who do that though-compenensation perhaps?
But on the other hand I'm a supporter of porn xD Way to be on both sides huh?
I'm a supporter of porn too. Kiddie porn tho...not at all. And I've always thought women posted nude pictures of themselves because it turned them on. I know many women consider it a turn on, but frankly I wouldn't let my g/f pose nude for a picture to be put online. I'd draw her in private...and I'd take pics of her in private but only I would ever see those.
