Like most of you, i can do without drama. But there is an issue currently going on that I feel very strongly about and would like to know if anyone else feels as strongly about it or at least if you stand on one side of it or the other. It's the issue of how admin defines and responds to male artistic nudes vs. female artistic nudes. Some of you may have read the recent news article on this topic but for those who didn't, I've included a link. I've also included links to a couple of journal entries that comment on this issue as articulately as the news article. Additionally, there is a link to this faq FAQ #60: Do you allow "Adult", explicit sexual or pornographic content on deviantART? How about linking off site? "The official definition of what is considered pornographic material is detailed elsewhere in the FAQ." along with their link to FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be? giving dA's definition of pornography.
Given the topic, I've decided not to post features as my favorites gallery is very biased and I don't really want to add the kinds of images of females that are in question. You will find some examples of them in the links I've provided. However, for fun, I have gone ahead and featured some fun stamps! Again, thanks to anyone who reads this and to those that take the separate poll and much hugs to any who take a moment to comment, either here or on the poll I've posted (agreeing or disagreeing).
