I'm writing this journal to bring forth a problem. Recently, a deviation of mine called, "PBMO" was deleted.
It was deleted because it was said to show "graphic sexual content"
But I knew that this picture was graphic, the deviation had the appropriate warnings and censors, but was STILL deleted.
Its not fair that my deviation got deleted with out any prior warning. The LEAST dA mods can do is send you a "Warning Note" saying
your deviation is too "graphic" for dA, so you in turn have time to "fix" your image so it isn't deleted.
This isn't my first deviation to be deleted. I have a few more, first was my "Naughty Ku Drawings" I had made these because I liked the
character enough to draw her in interesting positions. BUT they were deleted. Now I know why those were deleted, because they weren't censored
like my other works, they still did have that "Mature Warning" content option on.
My other works that were deleted include:
-My Little Sister's a...!1
-My Little Sister's a...!2
-My Little Sister's a...! CHARACTER INFO
-RECENTLY, MY GROUP Lolicons-UNITE
[It's been almost 2 MONTHS since my group's deletion and I STILL have had no one contact me why.]
These were deleted because they had instances of graphic sexuality and categorized as "underage"
But in fact, I had NEVER stated the age of the patrons in my stories, that was up to your own imagination. I think they were deleted because
of the "Quotes" I added to the beginning of my stories, those indeed stated age, but weren't apart of the main story.
Its not fair that a story be deleted just for being too graphic. Its just a FICTIONAL STORY. In the first place, if you start reading it, and decide you DON'T like it,
just stop reading and move on. You don't need to complain to anyone that what you were reading was "immoral" and should be deleted.
Also, if you are UNDERAGE yourself, you shouldn't be reading it. The "Mature Content Warning" is for your safety.
If you don't like something, that is your OWN opinion. Keep it to yourself. Our content shouldn't have to oppressed because you don't agree with it.
So in all, this is what I think.
1. DeviantART should have some kind of "Warning System" for deviations that are about to be deleted. Don't just go in there and DELETE it,
tell US that there is something wrong with it, so we can FIX it.
2. DeviantART should have like a separate, but still apart of, site that allows for such "graphic content" So us deviants who have, more "graphic" content,
have some place to post it.
3. If you don't like what you're reading/looking at, STOP and move along. You don't need to complain about it just because you find it "wrong"
DeviantART needs to loosen its restraints on us, we have just as many rights as the next guy.
[It's called DEVIANTart anyway, what are you if you don't allow "DEVIANT" content?]
(Comment if you believe dA is to restrictive on its users.)
