flashback to Tumblr
When will you learn
When will you learn that your actions have consequences

In all seriousness I had the impression that the site was mostly appealing to high schoolers or amateur artists instead of professionals/serious commission artists, so its not that surprising if they saw that their main audience was some uwu puritans high schoolers. Might be a bad move on the long run tho

To be fair, when you're a small team it's really difficult to monitor all of the possible works that are going to be uploaded to your site. Apple kicked Tumblr off of their store once when one user uploaded kiddie porn, they would be more than willing to shut down some random startup for the same reason.

But I believe that's because it was supposed to stay that way, not because they were being deceptive? Artfol has been on beta for a while and it did allow NSFW, but the Apple thing happened and the devs don't wanna risk having their app taken off the app store, so they had no option but to change their policy. At least that's what I understood.

There are literally SO many platforms NSFW artists can post on. I for one am kind of tired of them acting like when a small scale website says "no nsfw" it's somehow oppressive to the art community in general. I like NSFW art but I totally understand why as a website with assumingly not a lot of staff you would want to keep art that can range from tasteful NSFW to loli coomer shit off your platform until you get your staff together and know the problems the sites going to have with a normal amount of art content.

Everyone complains that DA is just a fetish website but then turns around and complains when an art website decides they don't want NSFW. I dont get it. You can't have your cake and eat it too. Maybe I'm also bitter that NSFW artists can seemingly do so little (like draw -insert meme chatacter here- getting fucked) and cultivate a huge audience of people who just want to jerk off and that's it. Not sure if I automatically want those people coming in droves to a newish platform especially if this one doesn't want to become the new DA kek.

No. 785884

This. Ever since YouTube commenters called deviantart a “fetish” site, so many people went on the bandwagon without even looking at the site.
Is fetish art easier to access on DA than other websites? Yes, but since the YouTube rampage, it has dialed back, yet it’s a website that continues to welcome stuff that isn’t on other sites like insta doesn’t welcome or promote as much (like gore)

No. 786143

>>785851
The issue is that Artfol initially allowed NSFW and then changed their mind after opening the app. If a website did the opposite, saying it was going to be fully SFW and then allowed porn and fetish art after opening, I would expect people to have the same complaints.

Not to mention, there isn't a lot. There is Twitter and Deviantart. Maybe Reddit but you can't do direct uploads on an NSFW profile, so you have to go through another website to upload. Almost no one genuinely uses DA to discover art since the mods are basically absent and the website is dead in the water. The reason people complain about DA is that it has no mods and there is no blacklist (or even extension) to try to filter some of it and IIRC, the block feature is pretty much broken. At least on Twitter, you can blacklist certain words, hashtags, etc, and Reddit is mostly contained to respective subreddits but most people suspect Reddit is going to do a full NSFW ban at some point in the future.

Not to mention, you can't even take commissions through PayPal for NSFW without being at risk of having your account removed and PayPal withholding the money indefinatly and MasterCard is tightening their restrictions for adult content being sold that is no doubt going to affect drawn imagery. And Patreon actively monitors your off-site activity (even as far as a website like pixiv) for anything that isn't allowed on their services and will boot you off if you break their TOS on a different website.

and it sounds like bitterness cause the grass is always greener on the other side. Most artists who do that little already had relatively large fanbases and this is coming from someone that primarily does SFW with a NSFW side gig.

This might sound insensitive but I can't help but feel like Michie over exaggerates things. I understand that the covid situation is serious but I also can't help but feel like Miichie is being a tad over reactive here.

She bitches about how she couldn't get vaccinated but then says it's because she works from home but I also remember her saying in previous videos that she hardly leaves her apartment unless she absolutely has to like for groceries and whatnot. But the main factor here is that she doesn't leave her home all that much, she's not out in the public on a daily basis unlike people who have have regular jobs and are in the public daily so of course someone like her wouldn't be a high priority because she's the less likely to get sick. I know it sounds insensitive but that's just the way I see it.

But also something that really does rub me the wrong way is that whenever she goes into these kind of story videos, she ALWAYS has to mention how something "traumatizing" happened to her and I can't help but feel like she's being overly dramatic. I feel bad admitting this because you never know but with how frequently she always has to mention this kinda thing, I can't help but feel like she's embellishing.

I don't care that she wants the vaccine, because who doesn't want the vaccine to save themselves from potential permanent lung damage. Aslso I might be remembering wrong but she meets up with friends and family so it's not like she's a pure hermit.

To your second point, it's not story time videos. It's EVERY VIDEO. Every video she says how the month was so stressful and traumatizing or 'it started out great but shit happened uwu boo poor me I love my patreon supporters wink' like ok is your life just constant misery then?

Also as a side note I'm still fucking confused how she draws like that with her amount of digital art experience and thinks she's doing well for herself. IDK if it's self confidence, obliviousness or both but I want to avoid doing whatever she's doing so I don't stagnate

I have worked the entirety of the pandemic in a grocery superstore, I had to work during the panic buying, deal with anti-maskers for months, I've had shit thrown at me because we weren't doing rainchecks, been spit on by covid deniers, etc. My cooperate overlords wanted a tax break so they went, bought it themselves, and now over 100+ of my stores staff got the shot.

Michie is a slob that sits at home all day, complains all night, and has the personality of sandpaper. She was talking about getting a part time job- Maybe if she got one, instead of saying she was as a way to manipulate people into donating to her patreon because 'it's not enough guys!!!!', then maybe she would have gotten it by now.

But then she'd just make a video about how the side effects where so awful, she felt so bad!! Oh no!!

Fair enough then, you're right. She's not a complete hermit since she still sees family and friends. So good for her for finally getting it.

> To your second point, it's not story time videos. It's EVERY VIDEO. Every video she says how the month was so stressful and traumatizing or 'it started out great but shit happened uwu boo poor me I love my patreon supporters wink' like ok is your life just constant misery then?


Yeah I don't watch all her videos, mainly just her story videos and it's just something I notice and it's to the point where I roll my eyes now whenever she feels the need to mention how she went through something "traumatizing" but "can't go into it". I'm just like "Shut up…" And again, I feel like an asshole for thinking this but in my experience with people who do this, they tend to exaggerate and I can't help but feel like Michie is doing the same thing.

>Also as a side note I'm still fucking confused how she draws like that with her amount of digital art experience and thinks she's doing well for herself. IDK if it's self confidence, obliviousness or both but I want to avoid doing whatever she's doing so I don't stagnate


I try not to question her art skill anymore but yeah, her style is just mindboggling for someone who has drawn as long as she has. I get that the cartoon aesthetic is a thing, I love it myself but there's something off about her style and she definitely stagnated. And sure she may have decent coloring but it doesn't really take effect when her own style is so… Off-putting.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way. I went ahead and just took back what I said since she's not a complete hermit but her lack of self-awareness will forever frustrate me. Glad to hear you and your fellow employees were able to get the vaccinations, you all deserve first dibs because you're working with the public and had to and continue to go through with the madness that has been happening.

> Michie is a slob that sits at home all day, complains all night, and has the personality of sandpaper.

Oh right, I forgot that she said she was looking for a part time job. I'm remembering how she said she wanted a part-time job that pays more than minimum wage because she "makes more than minimum wage" with her art (which I have to wonder how true that is). But yeah she was being ridiculous. She hasn't had a regular job in years and she expects to be able to find a job that pays more than minimum wage when she been out of work for a good while now? Just wow.

> But then she'd just make a video about how the side effects where so awful, she felt so bad!! Oh no!!


That part just made me roll my eyes. I'm sure that if she did all the research she claims she does, she would've been ready to expect the side effects like the drowsiness which is pretty typical in general when you get vaccinations.

All of this is only really an issue for NSFW artists. I dont understand how that effects all artists as a whole. Not everyone who posts art enjoys sharing a space with coomer content. Im not sure why every website has to cater to porn anyway if they're private businesses. Im not saying everyone has to use or like Artfol but this weird habit of people tearing down websites simply for the fact that they don't want porn on their site is strange to me.

I see plenty of NSFW artists thriving on twitter, instagram and reddit despite what everyone says about them "cracking down" tbh. I also don't think there's much merit to "well they were already popular before they drew NSFW" when I know of several no name artists off the top of my head that blew up when they drew NSFW animations. There's nothing wrong with drawing porn art but it's weird to me how if you're an artist you can't say you dislike NSFW art being mixed with SFW without being jumped on by other artists.

Absolutely opportunistic, but I'm tired of arguing with those "everyone should sell their commissions for almost no money" idiots.

Educating them isn't anyone's job at this point when they only choose to play victim every time people try to.

She said recently that she is going to finish it. In my opinion she is just doing too much work (her art improved, but when she started she said she wanted to do simple illustrations, and now it's way too detailled for her well being). She also faced a lot of criticisms and vendetta in my taste. I just wish she was a bit more open to not let her patreon in the dark. Her last kickstarter was highly successful so I guess she is remotivated. We will see.

No. 786787

>>786738
Yeah that's shitty. Under $10 is too low in almost all cases unless it's a super quick sketch.


Commission pricing discourse pops up on art twitter all the time and the consensus seems to be "charge professional industry rates regardless of your skill and location because you deserve it". Kind of hyperbolic but you get the gist. I don't agree with that tbh. Professional artists can charge industry rates because they are highly skilled and professional, whereas so many twitter artists think it's acceptable to keep pushing off commissions for months to do personal work and take 30 mental health days a month. And the market for certain art styles like anime is just so oversaturated even if you are pretty good.
But honestly most of the time it's just a wiser choice to get a regular part-time job if you need money. Commissions are so fickle that unless you are really good or popular you shouldn't be relying on them for stable income.

No. 786807

I don't really care about the prices people are charging their clients because it's up to the customer to decide if they're being ripped off or not, but the general unprofessionalism on the artists' front is often mindblowing.

To add sth to the NSFW discussion, it sounds like some of you don't realize how much NSFW ban affects. Yes, it affects artists drawing straight up porn and I agree porn should be kept away from publicly accessible sites with no age limit, but it also affects any kind of nudity; Raphael would get banned for this despite his artwork being shown at schools and in the museums to people of any age because it's not erotic or pornographic. Making any non-sexual nudity a complete taboo and bannable offense is something that may even have infuence on society as a whole - I don't want to be dramatic and say "if we ban NSFW men will start raping women showing just a little bit of skin in their attire" but you sure see it's not that black and white.

No. 786856

This. I make art with a lot of nudity but it's not porn or erotic stuff, just things like your pic that sadly falls under the NSFW ban. I also always have to put a NSFW warning on sites that do allow it, which most of the time gets the piece less recognition because algorithms don't favour that kind of artwork.

Not only tasteful nudity, but they can start banning other subjects as well once they have issued a NSFW ban. People thinking it'll only affect coomers drawing inflation gore porn really don't see the big picture where the platform can arbitrarily start pushing people out for whatever reason.

As someone on both sides of the tracks, it's basically a website saying one then and turning around and doing another. Like I said if artfol marketed itself as completely SFW and then suddenly allowed NSFW content, I'd expect people to have the same complaints that it basically isn't what they signed up for.

You don't have to cater to porn or NSFW art, just don't do the bait and switch bs which is my primary issue with it tbh.

the problem is that they baited artists then backed off bc it seemed convenient to do so. NSFW artists are usually annoyingly whiny when they're not welcome in a platform or etc but this was kind of a dick move of artfol to do. plus they didn't communicate it in any way, just silently changed their TOS, so a bunch of people might be coming in thinking it's still the same as it was before bc let's be real not everyone reads a social media's TOS when they have a twitter acc that acts as a communication board.

I mostly draw pinup and even websites that say they allow artistic nudity can ban or remove something because they found it too sexual. They say they allow artistic nudity but don't give a guideline of what specifically counts as artistic vs pornographic nudity.

Would I be allowed to post my drawings of nude reference photos? Women who are just topless but not doing anything sexual? Would two nude women next to each other be considered too sexual? Even though nudity is allowed, to what degree? Just nipples? A vulva? Would something like what Happy D draws (Say what you want about her skills, she doesn't draw pornography) be banned or not allowed on the website even though it isn't pornographic? At one point DeviantArt said artistic nudity was allowed but you could still be banned if they deemed it "too sexual" or "too erotic" even if it fit within a general guideline of artistic nudity.

Like I've seen similar situations with YouTube, FFN, etc. where they say they allow certain content, but then still ban/censor/remove it. Like YouTube allows LGBT+ content but you can still get demonetized and get community strikes if it isn't advertiser/family-friendly and it's even extended to despite having an app specifically made for children, YT forces everyone on the primary app to be kid/family-friendly and can demonetize you if they incorrectly flag your content as "for children".

It's an issue for primarily NSFW artists yes dealing with payment processors, websites, etc. but not every NSFW artist is drawing coomer loli inflation. Some of us are just drawing regular nudity that is no more vile or graphic than paintings that are shown in schools and museums yet could still be de-platformed or risk losing access to money because of it.

>>786891
And yeah basically this. It was a dick move and a lot of people had to specifically ask if NSFW was no longer allowed because they didn't notify anyone of the change in TOS. Even though no one reads a social media's TOS all the time, at least most websites make an effort to alert people to a change in TOS via email, in-app/website notification, etc. It was asked repeatedly if NSFW content would be allowed, to what degree, etc., and the devs all agreed and said yes yes yes only to change it 3 days into the opening of the app. Even though may have been largely because of Apple's bs content policies, it was also like no secret apple was like that so why would you even say yes to start with?

I think more people would have preferred the app only being on android or having to use a website as opposed to a bait and switch.

side note: the devs speak like children/teenagers and that honestly makes me want to use the app even less.

If you live in a country with a devalued currency like me you can mog the fuck out of other people by offering competitive third world prices that get multiplied by 4 to 6 on your end.

I'm an artist who likes to draw SFW and NSFW art and I'm tired of being treated like the fucking boogeyman.
Whether it's tasteful erotica or cumbrain porn, I don't care and honestly, I don't see the big deal. Personally, I simply like to look at and/or draw sexy scenes between characters I like, or erotic ideas I have, and it's annoying having to defend myself for it.

I also came across internet porn as a kid. But as an adult, I see why kids shouldn't be exposed so things, e.g addicts, groomers, "I'm a girl/boy because I like lesbian porn or yaoi" transgenders. They can't stop kids from finding porn, but they're going to do what they can so they won't be legally responsible for it.

that's why those dumbasses should actually charge real prices. they only get commissions while behaving like that because they cost 30$. at 300$ nobody would put up with that shit, and they'd have to find a real job. if they found a real job they'd have less time to scream at social media and more exposure to the idea that other people are real humans other than themselves. they might become less obsessed with their dream of working in art without ever being good at it and more willing to participate in society. its a win-win.

if the bar for being annoyed or miffed by something is whether or not you're oppressed by that logic no one can complain about being mildly annoyed or frustrated by anything unless it systematically affects them and others who are a protected class like damn.

>>787158
and yeah this. Most artists are good faith and tag their content as best they can… Look at A03 and all the weird and NSFW stuff over there, most people tag their things in good faith and if a website provides a good tagging system, a lot of artists, SFW and NSFW like that cause NSFW artists get tired of being told we don't do enough to keep our content away from people who don't want to see it short of having a completely privated account and in some cases, even that isn't enough given how many artists like badtorquoise get called out for doing NSFW on a privated account and SFW artists will never have to see or interact with it.

places like DeviantArt got do bad with porn because there is no kind of filtration system or way of blocking tags/content you don't want to see and even blocking users can be completely broken since last I checked, they still have a limit to how many people you can block.

idk why its so hard for a website for artists to have a website that allows SFW and NSFW and just have a good tagging system so no one has to see anything they don't want to. Most people tag in good faith cause it helps people who want to see that kinda thing find it.

If she got $1000 she'd blow it on frivolous items she would call her "comfort shopping that's essential for her mental well being" like any other e-beggar, there's no way in hell she would be handing it out to relatives in need.

It' probably was because she's one of the worst examples of this. Took on a shit ton of commissions and kept adding them with "emergency commissions" that only kept piling on top of each other which bloated out her backlong.

Goes on about mental health and how she just cannot work -insert day- and needs to take time off to address it (play video games or play D&D).

I mean I'm sorry but I don't feel sorry for her, her and other artists that get into situations like this only have themselves to blame for taking on more work than they could handle. And in Michie's case, she refuses to refund people who have been in her backlong for months to almost a year and yet complains about how behind she is in commissions.

Pretty much what >>787530 said. TD = Twisted Disaster, a somewhat sizeable art/commentary channel who was best known for being friends with Holly Brown and also involved in the zine controversy that they both got into back in 2019 I believe.

Twisted Disaster's highlights aren't really as severe as some others mentioned in previous threads, the main issues with her is her lack of self awareness and more specifically, her lack of work ethic when it comes to commissions and her being overly dramatic when she claimed she was homeless back in 2019 when she wasn't, she was just living in her in-laws garage until they could find their own apartment after they had asked them to leave.

On the commission front, she pretty much does what your personal cow does only she got a huge influx of commissions because she kept saying she had emergency after emergency which created a bloated backlog that she's slowly getting through but has the gall to whinge about it when it was her own fault and it could be avoided if she issued refunds but in her words, "I just can't do that".

And then the cherry on top was when she said she was looking for part time work but wants a job where she makes more than minimum wage to justify gas money to get to and from work but refuses to work in places like factories because she can't stand for long periods of time lest her back pains (and her obesity) or computer office-type jobs because she doesn't want to be on a computer all day and then come home to do the same thing when she's working on art. And I'm sure you can see how dumb this all is.

It's just so… cheap? Tacky? To copy another artist so blatantly. I'm glad loish can be chill about it because if she wasn't, she'd be going crazy. Every other post in my explore page is some loish clone but lotusbubble is one of the most shameless ones. With loish she does the cute stylized girls with bright lighting but you can tell she has all the fundamentals down and is good at other things too. While the clones seem to be unable to make anything but sparkly girl portraits.

It's still pretty stupid and tacky in my opinion and whoever the marketing team was for this need to be re-trained. If you look at the original tweet you'll see alot of genuinely good people with a nice anime style that only have a couple thousand followers at most (along with a slew of people advertising their shitty tumblr level pastel art.). If they wanted a big artist for the free advertising from their fanbase they should have just approached one directly instead of outright saying it. Nothing wrong with wanting a bigger artist, but they showed their ass with their real intentions kek.

Honestly the problem is not that they wanted a big artist, the problem is that they said it out loud. In art industry it's very known that companies usually want to use artists that have more name to their belts in order to garner hype, hell this happens in zines all the time, where the bigger names have better chance of getting selected. The thing is though that even though some big artists get chosen only due to their numbers, smaller artist aren't barred out completely from applying and still have a chance of getting chosen if their art is deemed as good enough. This just flat out "bans" smaller skilled artists.

I would also add that this is kinda tacky anyway since you basically want art + influence for a price of a single commission, where usually you would need to either hire separately for these positions or offer a higher pay to accommodate for both of these things. Sure we don't know how much the commissioner is getting paid but assuming that it's a flat price you're basically trying to have your cake an eat it too. The better way would've been to open commissions for all and then just choose those higher follower count artist without flatout stating that. Everyone already knows it's being done, it's like an unspoken rule everyone understands and accepts even if they don't like it but that doesn't mean it should become acceptable criteria. It's like a collage openly admitting that they only want kids who's parents make certain amount of money. It happens regardless but shouldn't become a standard.

His little Twitter non-apology years later is pretty funny considering it can be summed up as "I'm sorry you got mad at my obvious joke". I feel like he'd address that game and not just the tweets themselves. Like all other popular NG creators, he's just another stunted manchild permanently stuck at the mental age of 12. Going off of his recent tweets it wouldn't be too far of a stretch to call him going full lolcow in the recent future.

As someone who is Black, I don't think it's racist to give black characters features like bigger noses, thicker lips, or very afro-textured hairstyles, these are traits that full Black people tend to have. It's very easy to see genuine design of a black character and a racist one. If your character doesn't look like the attached photo which is meant to be offensive, then you have nothing to sweat in my opinion. But yeah the tooth gaps really do take from the art.

How often can you do giveaways on social media before it comes off as tacky/desperate?

I enjoy doing giveaway raffles because it stirs up a little interest and helps me clear out physical merch, and I'd kind of like to make it a regular scheduled thing so people can anticipate it. At the same time I don't want all my engagement to be people exclusively looking for free shit.

The artist drawing kids like that is definitely questionable, but it isn’t necessary to cancel every single weirdo out there. Part of being on the internet is accepting that you’ll have to share space with a few freaks unless you go and make your own website. If they’re not doing anything illegal or against Twitter’s TOS then they have as much of a right to be there as anybody else. (Plus the passive aggressive emoji use annoys me way too much.)

And they mostly only go after female artists (or genderspecials who are bio women), I never see them go after male artists who draw porn of female characters. I also it's primarily shounen anime related. Nobody gets mad when someone draws nsfw of the magical girls.

How the ever loving fuck am I supposed to deal with deranged teenagers DMing me and commenting on my posts asking what my pronouns are. Why does it even fucking matter. I’ve ignored them until now but more and more keep asking every day, what the hell have I done to deserve an audience that asks me my pronouns constantly. Their retarded bios have shit like “they/she/he” “any pronouns” what is even the point!!! What do my pronouns have anything to do with my art, why have I attracted trannies! I can’t even rant about this to any mutual sin fear of outing myself as a “terf” and having my art career cancelled
What is this fucking timeline.

The pressure to put pronouns and age and sexual orientation on your bio from people you don't even know and will never meet is so fucking disgusting. Tinfoil but I genuinely believe the reason I'm not as popular is because I have none of that information readily available on my bio, because a lot of people want a quick way to "identify" with someone, or categorize someone. I recently saw a Tumblr post asking someone why they won't put their pronouns up and it was the stupidest shit.

You can tell that it's the younger generation who does that shit, too, because they grew up with the internet and have no respect for the practice of safety or anonymity, like, that used to be rule number fucking one on the internet, now everyone wants a photo, pronouns and your sexual orientation. Gross. Like, I don't wanna know that info for a 15 year old. Nobody thinks anymore.

So it’s like this unofficial thing, that by putting your pronouns in your bio, you publicly support trans?? Maybe someone can explain it better for me

There’s a push for non-trans people to put pronouns in their bio to “normalize” it so that trans people look less out of place when they do it. If everyone puts pronouns in their bio, then you can’t assume someone is trans for doing it because everyone’s doing it. Refusing to put pronouns in your bio is seen as anti-trans.

What are you talking about?

Female artists with a predominantly female audience lose their support immediately and have to come up with these retarded "actually I was abused as a child which is why I like this anime teen" posts and basically lay out their whole mental health history in their desperation to soften the blows even a little. The people attacking them feed on that shit, they know it's easier to bully female artists because women are socialized to avoid conflict. It is what it is and in case it's never recognized it can never be fixed.

And in case you're instead referring to the fact that the Artist Of the Day receiving cancellation is actually a male then you should know it's a FTM troon i.e. a woman

That's the thing. These kids are attacking (mainly female) artists left and right over muh cartoon characters and won't rest until the earth is scorched black, and they're learning it from the adults grooming them to be their personal attack dogs. There's always some adult behind their actions telling them that they're one of the good ones, they can be trusted, see how much they care for your kids' safety by calling these abusive racist pedo bitches out etc. In reality they're most likely mentally ill, narcissistic, terminally online sad fucks who can't function with their peers and have to exploit minors for validation and admiration. They always have a graveyard of skeletons stuffed under their beds and probably an anonymous diaperfur account nobody knows about but it doesn't stop them from telling kids online that they should look out for anyone shipping their NOTP because that's the sign of a pedophile.

It's dangerous in both giving out false information on how to actually recognize red flag behavior and also because inevitably they're going to piss off the wrong hombre and end up ruining their own lives instead. But no, it's always about "letting pedos know their place uwu" while discord groomers run free behind their backs.

I have a love-hate relationship with webcomics. In one hand I find them super enjoyable (if they're well done) and they can be a fun experience. On the other hand, usually when a big artist starts a webcomic it becomes literally everything they post…everything is about the comic no matter what and they keep promoting it 24/7 to the point it becomes exhausting. I personally prefer to follow the comic from afar without following the artist and risk getting full of them posting about it so much.

and most importantly, it is false info on how to recognize red flags and abusive/predatory behavior like anon said. like i dont understand the disconnect between showing censored ""cp"" to your majority underage audience but then calling the artist who drew it in the wrong even though if it were legitimately cp they wouldn't be able to post it censored.

They're attempting to destroy the reputation and lives of actual people to defend what amounts to pixels on a screen. No one even wants to say that though in fear someone will take them saying "calm down its just a drawing" to mean "I love rape/incest art and I wish there was more of it". Its fucking insane.

I'm not saying I agree with the weird porn fandom artists draw but whatever happened to just… clicking away when you saw something you didn't like? Actual predators like Sh*dman exist on twitter producing the most vile content but these teens and wokesters just want to attack artists that are "attackable". Morality is moot.

If anything lesbian stuff is more of a sign of a male AGP transbian fetishist at this point, it's completely overtaken by heterosexual scrotes and BL is literally the only genre they can't sexualize under male gaze.

No. 792094

>>792083
That analogy isn’t so good though…The strap-on is for the feeling; yaoi, at least the kind with relatively manly men like Columbo draws, uses the whole muscular male form. So much art focusing on muscular male bodies. I’ll believe lesbians like this kind of yaoi but I too cannot grasp it lol.

I can grasp the bishie mode stuff. I’m not so experienced but from what I remember in my younger days there wasn’t a focus on anatomically accurate bodies.

No. 792115

Yaoi is about exploring sex/relationships with the absence of women, female sexuality is so policed that a lot of people would rather explore themselves via fictional men, because they don’t typically face the social stigma women do.

I don’t know why body types are being brought up, Columbo is an artist so naturally they’d be interested in drawing muscles?

Statistics say straight women prefer lesbian porn over straight porn. By your logic, that would make most heterosexual women lesbian or bi. But since the reason is that in lesbian porn the attention is solely on pleasing a woman, that's actually more appealing than watching often male-oriented straight porn where the woman gets choked, slapped, fucked raw without protection etc. The same applies to BL, it's all existing in an universe created by women to appeal to the taste defined by the experience of growing up and living your life as a female.

I'm not trying to fight you on your little headcanon because it's futile, unless you're a lesbian fujo yourself you will never understand the sum of variables that lead you to the lifestyle but attempting to take away someone's sexuality card based on the fictional media they consume is a step beyond retarded. Most fujos aren't interested in gay shit because "squee two males how wonderful", the experience is created by a tight-knit network made of other women with similar experiences, free of male presence and oppression, free of expectations based on female sexuality including the objectification of women in erotica. That's also why these "antis" are conditioned to see fujos as the archetypal evil, they're women who dare to explore and establish their sexuality without feeling ashamed.

But like, what do you think lesbians and bi women are doing when they cosplay/ERP as the guys in BL and act out scenes with each other? Most guys in BL look very effeminate. The "top" characters look like tall butch lesbians, while the "bottom" characters look like tomboys, and I don't think that's a coincidence. In Japan, it seems like actual gay men are into bara. Wouldn't most fujos just force their way into those spaces if it was really about creeping on gay guys?

Anime girls have zero to no personality in most cases, they're blank things for scrotes to project their fetishes
So what do women do? relate to the 2D men

BL doesn't involve men, it involves imaginary men written by women. Lesbians don't like real men, but a man imagined by another woman has appeal, and the focus on gay love will always be appealing to another gay person. There's yaoi that's just painfully het, the ones with overly aggressive tops and feminine twink bottoms, but if lesbians are interested in drawing two "men" as equals I don't find that makes her not a lesbian. There's nuance here because the media we like doesn't define who we are. People who love horror and true crime aren't psychopaths or sadists for example

That's honestly the reason why I was into yaoi. The guys looked like butches and baby boidykes, the writing had a ton of female energy behind it. It was easy to not give any shits about the content.
I knew "straight" women who'd do "yaoi" scenes in cosplay with other women. They had an internalized lesbphobia and probably didn't realize it.
You're right; in Japanese media, bara is associated with gay men. The absence of feminity = gay.

Don't 2D men act as romanticized men? It's fiction, men and women both act in an exaggerated and unrealistic way. People say they act like women, but I've never seen real life women act like that.

Gay/bi people tend to be into gay/bi content. Fandom spaces featuring lesbians or female characters in general tends to be overwhelmingly filled with men (and gay men have their own spaces and don’t care because they’re still men and don’t have to worry about being pushed out the way women do) so yeah no shit its a little easier to be in a space thats actually female dominated.

I disagree, because men have never been shamed for being attracted to women, while lesbianism and bisexuality are typically shamed or outright erased.
Plus, most guys into traps are just coomers who fried their brain on so much porn that they need the added novelty of a woman with dick to get off.
I'd argue BL is a proxy for often shamed, repressed female/female attraction and sexuality. It's almost euphemistic, and the male bodies aren't even accurate to actual male bodies (self-lubricating asses lol). Actual female desire is downcast and seen as dirty (especially when it's not in service to males), so the "solution" is guys-but-not-really-guys acting out the fantasies women would be able to express if they were given more freedom/safety. There's no such nuance in "trap" hentai, OTOH. It's pretty straightforward faggotry and coomerism.

Because male and female sexualities developed differently. Men don't have to be subjected to objectification, fetishization and sexualization since early puberty while also being repressed and shamed for it. They aren't disturbed by being thought of as sexual beings. They aren't being reminded of how they're expected to be sexually subservient to their partner of the opposite sex. They don't have to be afraid of being raped or sexually abused. They don't have to go through these experiences during their youth and young adulthood which are amplified tenfold if you're not heterosexual. Men can enjoy porn of their self-insert power fantasy avatar fucking a mountain of women because they feel immensely powerful being sexual. Women don't have that privilege. The ones with the most traumatizing experiences regarding their gender, especially the non-genderconforming ones, usually don't like inserting into the sexual situations in media. That's why they prefer reading erotica with male only characters that are still feminine enough for them to resonate with. I really, really don't understand why this is such a far-fetched idea to people other than maybe men themselves.

Not all lesbians like this female-created gay genre. Not at all. Some enjoy lesbian media only because they don't find the appeal in male characters. But almost all of those who do like this very specific, niche, fictional, romanticized genre are lesbians.

that's just for plot convenience or the mangaka being retarded. Doubt she wants to secretly portray women and if she is, she needs to get on some meds or therapy.

Most women into weeby media are also into bishonen/biseinen. Liking men with 'feminine' aesthetics doesn't make a woman any less het.

>BL is only a little popular with lesbians now, in the 00s it was a niche that straight girls and some gay guys were into and most creators are straight girls (a lot of popular og authors were even married) who like seeing two men fucking. I'm not saying there aren't lesbians enjoying fluffy BL, I'm just saying that the majority of BL fans are people strongly into men.
I don't know where those zoomer fujoshis are coming from. They clearly don't know the history of their favorite genre (at least in the western world, though the point about mangakas being het also is… interesting). No, the 00's fujoshis weren't into women at all, in fact they usually despised female characters (why is a matter for another topic, but they sure weren't interested into rehabilitating them). The trope of 'evil ex girlfriend' trying to break up the gay couple was extremely popular kek. The loudest fujoshis were girls/women getting off on kawaii bishies fucking each other. Literally nobody would even consider that they could be bi/lesbian based on that since their interest in males was obsessive and sexual/romantic. This is some bizzare rewriting of history.
Anyway imagine being a lesbian, being able to cut of men from your life but still deciding to obsess over fictional males. Couldn't be me.

And I love how you're taking some ridicolous cases where the asshole lubricates itself for plot convenience or ignorance as the standard for all BL works. Now hardly any BL uses that shit unless it's some trash drawn by some teen girl. No need to shave is present anywhere in fiction, it's not only a BL thing, but a lot of works depict body hair despite stylization.

tbh I don't get why everything women do in fandom has to be about misogyny or homophobia whatever. Scrotes get to do whatever they want and no one's going all armchair psychiatrist on them. Shipping is just harmless fun and I like seeing happy gay couples whether they're m/m or f/f. This conversation's been had a million times and no matter how many times lesbians explain why they like it there's still people who won't believe them and then just start the argument again a while later and repeat forever.

Shipping is just how some people like to engage in fandom and it turns out plenty of women like m/m whether they're gay, straight, or bi. It's not that deep.

This is mostly untrue to begin with, but the times you actually saw this happening with characters like Relena, it was mostly young preteen girls who didn't know any better. This isn't even touching how many of these female characters were written by men and existed as nothing more than fanservice bait or just as x character's gf/wife/love interest and nothing more. You saw way more people using these female characters as self inserts/fujos to be supportive of whatever pairing lmao.

You're spouting bullshit.

The grown female authors made them that way. No one self inserted in them because they were bad and boring characters, instead girls who wanted to self insert would do so with the "uke" who was still a male but a bit softer in looks and personality.

I agree, I feel like a lot of people here don’t know what they’re talking about. Not only is female sexuality more complicated because of social/cultural pressure to be “pure” yet do whatever men want at the same time, but the way people think of sexuality in general has changed from the early 00s. Not everyone into BL has the same reasons for it, so you can’t assume things about someone’s sexuality or personal issues just because they like BL. Some people grow out of it anyway when they get into actual relationships.

From wikipedia (click for sources)
>The female readership in Thailand is estimated at 50% as males also read gay manga,[5] and the membership of Yaoi-Con, a yaoi convention in San Francisco, is 50% female.[1] It is usually assumed that all female fans are heterosexual, but in Japan there is a presence of lesbian manga authors[6] and lesbian, bisexual, other or questioning female readers.[7] Recent online surveys of English-speaking readers of yaoi indicate that 50-60% of female readers self-identify as heterosexual.[8][9] It has been suggested that Western fans may be more diverse in their sexual orientation than Japanese fans and that Western fans are "more likely to link" BL ("Boy's Love") to supporting gay rights.[9] Much like the Yaoi readership base, the majority of Yaoi fanfiction writers are also believed to be heterosexual women. The reasoning behind this trend is sometimes attributed to patriarchy- that women who write yaoi fanfiction are in fact acting out heterosexual fantasies through these male figures.[10]

My point is that content deviating from heterosexual expression doesn't matter when homosexuality is titillating/fascinating to hetero people. That's an incredibly simplified take.

This is just like that viral game I wont mention that anons were going up to bat for in this very thread, ugly goofy looking male designs and coombait female designs intended to be a prize for the male player. Say what you want but female characters who arent written as men with tits or prizes for moid self inserters are much needed to be created by a talented content creator with resources.

She's genuinely the biggest retard ever. She's been beefing with this Levihan shipper since fucking 2013 and their drama is still ongoing to this day. She legit claims to have PTSD and anxiety from it, how all the harassment online made her stop eating and she even had to go to the hospital over that,… which is so pathetic because this is all literally over a bunch of Attack on Titan ships. Just get over it and accept that there are people out there who will ship what you don't like, jfc this woman is around 23+ years old too. Whenever something happens, she's very quick to make it about herself, in this case it's the Columbo drama. Columbo got doxxed and of course Hanpetos had to run to her account to say how she's "scared for her life". Literally no one cares about her except for the imaginary people who harass her on a daily basis.

The Levihan shipper who frames her to be some "abuser" and "stalker" is pretty retarded too. Kins Hanji to the extreme and has an entire furry OC made after her where she self inserts hardcore. She thought that Hanpetos called her a retard back in 2013 which started the entire drama and here we are, two grown ass women claiming to have actual PTSD, depression and anxiety over fictional ships.

pretty much. Yaoi/BL is filled with women (for various reasons) including lesbians. You can draw something because you find it sexually appealing or just because it's fun, interesting, for exploration, etc. not everything has to be because you just want to bone it.

like I'm bi but at some point I lost interest in BL and just didn't find it appealing anymore. Not because I'm not attracted to guys, but because BL specifically didn't interest me. There's more that goes into the interest of this stuff than just sex appeal. One reason I used to be into it was because it could have some raunchy or straight-up problematic shit in it without anyone raising a stink or fuss had it been het or lesbian.

>>792263
Yeah yuri made by women tends to be rather dull. Citrus was the first problematic yuri I had come acros sin years and it was a breath of fresh air yet everyone got called out for liking it because they called it fetishistic. Anything that is wlw but anything beyond gentle and sweet handholding and uwu cuddles is unacceptable so most people just don't make it because they aren't trying to be harassed just for enjoying it.

hell no one can enjoy anything problematic w/o people thinking you're fucked up or genuinely want it to happen cause people don't separate fantasy from reality anymore. No I enjoy problematic fiction because it helps cope with the emotions of semi-trauma and negative emotions from my youth and i'm in a place in real life that is perfectly safe and I can explore dark and possibly traumatic shit without endangering myself.

>>792289
It depends on the kind of men a woman prefers. Honestly I prefer bara > yaoi boys because I actually like huskier and more masculine men.

>>792441
In my experience I've had more sexual shaming from women than I have men to the point of being groomed into hating myself due to my attraction to men and thinking that I actually deserved terrible relationships with men despite the number of abusive and toxic women in my life that fed that nonsense to me and abused me on top of it.

>>792455
Any guy from a boyband (I.e Jonas Brothers, BTS, etc.) will probably look close enough to BL characters. It won't be 1:1 because real life duh but you get some not hyper-masculine guys. And most gay asian men seem to be into both relatively equally. It just depends on if they like twinks or if they like hunks. the gay guy ik irl likes both while i (bisexual woman) prefer bara. I just like men with little more meat on them.

>>792622
why are people literally this invested in ship drama? If a ship causes you so much stress your hair starts falling out you fucking need therapy.

>>792624

It's because people try too hard to relate what you like to explore or enjoy in a fantasy to be what you're sexually into when sexuality for both men and women is extremely nuanced and complicated and there is barely any research into it due to the fact that scientists cannot get funding to study sex because people think they already know all there is to know.

>>792647
You don't need to have your IRL name listed anywhere. Asians can be middle eastern and vice versa. If your family literally doesn't search any of that stuff or follow accounts related to fandoms it's pretty easy to go undetected with the massive amount of people and things on tumblr. Even if her brother already knew it's still terrifying and doxxing to have someone you know say internet strangers managed to get in contact with them.

My god this is what happens when i don't check this all day and dont want to same fag post. One big ass post

Tldr: Sexuality is nuanced,BL is made by and consumed mostly by women though a lot of asian men like bara adn yaoi relatively equally, I prefer bara > yaoi, a lot of yuri is dull because it will be attacked if it is anything less than pure, fiction is for exploration and it's oversimpliication to make assumptions based on what kind of fiction someone consumes and why, women like a variety of things and there is no one size fits all. Some like bara, some don't some like both or guys that are more shounen average and you don't need to have a lot of information listed to get doxxed.

That's not shit you joke about publicly for anyone to see and minors/fanart crusaders get away with a lot of messed up life ruining tactics because they do it under the guise of moral superiority.

Even if Columbo lied which I don't think they did considering how easy it is to dox someone in 2021, its not far fetched to believe someone could have taken that callout post and decided to do it just for fun because they saw some gay shit they didn't like, like 4chan moids do. People making call outs need to understand how dangerous weaponizing a group of anonymous strangers on the internet are. How are they going to verify every single person going after this artists intentions?

That, and women are just in general considered easier targets.

like the pattern I'm noticing w/ all of these callouts against artists is that they're always disprivilaged or viewed as weak/easy in some way. Women, LGBT+, neurodivergent, non-white/american, ESL/Not knowing English at all, etc.

For all the bitching and moaning they do about men and male artist, straight artists, etc., they only ever target anyone who is male, straight, cis, neurotypical, etc. It's because women, LGBT+, etc. artist are supposed to be "better" than that and therefore they view harassing– I mean "calling them out" or "bringing awareness" to the content they draw public is only meant to educate them or their mutuals who for some reason they feel the need to control who they (their mutuals) follow because their mutuals are not allowed to enjoy things that they do not enjoy.

So it's basically a combination of A. Viewing non-majority people as an easy target, B. Feeling that non-majority people should be "better than" the x-majority people, C. Wanting/needing to control who their mutuals follow because god forbid your friend like something problematic that you personally find disgusting. D. Neo-puritan culture E. Using being online "Activists" and hiding behind "educating" and "just warning" people to be media watchdogs and bullies, F. An absolute refusal to hold themselves accountable for anything they do and splitting hairs over-celebrating someone being hurt vs deactivating (I.e "I'm not celebrating them being outted just celebrating them deactivating") as well as shifting the blame of their own actions/fault in any situation where an artist gets harassed because of what they started and only taking responsibility for the bare minimum if that, and G. Getting groomed by adults who think what someone draws is an indicator predatory behavior rather than actual actions.

personal view (as someone who thinks ship harassment is stupid and it doesn't matter) is that proshippers draw more drama to themselves by obsessing about the issue. when this all started at first I was sympathetic because it's that insane and annoying to be targeted over that shit. however some of them really dwell in it and almost encourage the drama I would say? by constantly talking about it and riling up antis. goes without saying that antis do the same thing. anyway I think this person should stop talking about it, tell the haters to fuck off/block them and keep doing their thing confidently

It's one thing to be cancelled in a ship war as a 16-year old but an entirely another when you're an adult who has a career and has to pay for your own rent, utilities and food. Not to mention the previous case about some artist being outed to her homophobic conservative muslim family in a country where homosexuality gets you a death sentence.

Sounds like “well you wouldn’t get harassed if you covered yourself more”
I get that it’s quite retarded to say everything about yourself on the internet, but some people have friends and sometimes you just want to share snippets of what’s going on, like when they go out traveling or when they post their favorite doodles.
>but you posted it knowing the consequences1!1!! So now I’m allowed to go to your workplace and get you fired!1!!
No, specially if the person in question only did some retarded drawings of shit like an aged up character or a gay ship they like, holding hands or hugging, because some of these retards will see red just looking at two characters they don’t like together hugging.
It’s schizo shit and that kind of shitty person should get sent to jail for harassing, stalking and slandering a random person on the internet because they did a fucking drawing of two characters.
I don’t understand what is this clown world in which we’re living right now, in which we have to wonder whether the harassment of a person is okay or no.
Like, sure, kick them out of your ~*comfort*~ platform, creepy children, but let them live their life, you don’t need to kick them out from -every- platform, you don’t need to look out where they work so they get fired, you don’t need to talk to their family and friends, that’s fucking creepy and it should be penalized properly.
This is why vigilantism doesn’t work, specially nowadays, kids are kids and they will stay retarded until they hit their 30’s if you’re lucky, everyone can just say whatever the fuck they want and it won’t be double checked because I swear there’s tiny hive minds everywhere. This is also why there’s so many actual pedophiles doing whatever they want and getting their ass licked.

Yeah I agree with you anon. >>793181 I think that yeah, you're right, people should consider their online footprint and stop oversharing to the degree that they do because it's way too dangerous now, but you're not really considering that for a lot of people that's not an option. That may be possible for younger artists who have barely posted but for ones who have a large digital footprint that's not possible. The internet was very different even just 5 years ago and it's very short sighted to say "well, those people should have been smarter" when a whole generation of people were lulled in to a false sense of security and then had the rug pulled from under them. People will dig through years and years of someone's posts just to find a single scrap of anything to run a smear campaign on someone simply because they don't like them and the fact that a lot of artists are in that position is not fair.
As well, the accounts egging them on or whatever are not artists, they're randos who can just delete their accounts and move on if they want. For artists that's not usually possible and artists are easier targets because there's little social media attention to be gained from starting a harassment campaign on someone with 30 followers. To compare the two is being a bit deliberately obtuse, being fair.
The problem with the whole proshipping/anti thing from what I can see is that the rules are constantly changing as to what is acceptable. I dislike loli and shota shit personally but if I'm being honest the vast majority of artists getting cancelled don't draw that. Most of it is just aged up characters or anime teens who look like adults anyway but some terminally online weirdo decides to throw a shitfit because they kin that character or something and then they convince their minor minions to harass people in droves. The issue is that a lot of this is never any tangible complaint, it's always something extremely vague, saying the artist is a pedo or whatever but current discourse has proven that that can be anything from being a groomer, to loli/shota, to anime teens aged up or a minor coded adult or whatever they decide falls under this bracket.
Most of this is not being said in good faith and is done solely to catch artists and harass people for fun because they've decided they don't like them, and it's almost always women who are targeted. I really don't see how drawing some Jojo ship or something is justification for people stalking you to the point of breakdown or getting you fired or something, and lets not pretend that the former doesn't happen as a result the vast majority of the time from these harassment campaigns because they do.

No, anon. It's not a "both sides are dumb" kind of issue. The other side is minding their own business and the other is attacking their real life being over drawings like a deranged terrorist. Being butthurt over fictional ships and characters is retarded and it should be ridiculed so that people understand it's not something a sane, mature, responsible person should practice. Speaking up about all of this isn't "asking for it" or "dwelling in it", it's raising awareness about an issue people aren't taking seriously. To the cancel crowd it's just a fun game with no consequences because their immature brains can't think two seconds ahead and others believe it "couldn't happen to them because they're careful about their online presence and never do anything controversial" before it happens to them.

ata and it really doesn’t. You can post all the stuff you mentioned without posting your real name, your DOB, where you live, or anything detailed about your family and real friends. It has no accurate analogy in real life harassment, where the consequences and actions are all instant and occur in real life.
>aged up character or a gay ship they like, holding hands or hugging, because some of these retards will see red just looking at two characters they don’t like together hugging.

>>793233
>That may be possible for younger artists who have barely posted but for ones who have a large digital footprint that's not possible
As much as I’d want to agree with this, I can’t. It sucks and it’s terrible, and no one is smart when they’re a 14 year old retard drawing shit online they unknowingly might regret later, but internet safety awareness existed back then and that was my entire argument. I don’t think lack of self awareness 10 years ago when you were in 9th grade is justification to be stalked now. The mob will attack you for anything so really what exactly an artist does shouldn’t matter, what I’m saying is artists can make an effort to untether themselves from a former digital identity if it’s putting their lives at risk. You can fight off antis and proshippers for your entire online career or what fucking ever, but your personal safety should be your main priority. If you can’t abandon an account because that’s your job(and you’re actually making good money off of it), then honestly you’re SOL because the mob isn’t going to magically go away until these kids get tired of themselves. Change your name, move towns, do whatever you have to. But if it’s a personal account, fucking jump ship and don’t post shit that jeopardizes your real life again. If your art style is so identifiable then change it up every few posts, write in a foreign language, change fandoms or change mediums. There’s so many fucking artists online right now, if you’re not a big account you’re really not that important. I don’t think this is being obtuse, it’s merely harsh if not objective.

Well anon I mean, I agree with you for the most part, if you're in the shitter then yeah that's what you should do. However I do think you maybe misunderstood what I was saying before slightly. I wasn't saying anything so much about internet safety, what I was trying to emphasize moreso was the fact that only a few years prior to now, the landscape of the internet was quite different. Even something harmless like genderbend art is deemed in a completely different light nowadays and is a cancel worthy offense. So lots of people will have ammunition like this that can be used against them unfairly because the rules have changed and who knows when you'll get another rug pull when the rules change again. What I'm saying is, it's difficult to keep up with and it's not as simple as people whining, as you were claiming above.
On the point of internet safety though, you are sort of ignoring the fact that for the past decade, social media has become increasingly more predatory in terms of what they want people to share online and our privacy in general. For example, how if you use a fake name on facebook they'll lock your account and demand a scan of an ID and force you to change it to your real name. Rules like this have largely normalized and encouraged people en masse to overshare their data online and I don't think it's entirely being fair to point at them and blame them for this.
Changing accounts is also not that simple for this reason and I say this from experience. One time I made a new account on instagram that was not attached to anything I had previously used, no same email, no phone number, no other accounts logged in, nothing. Yet I was still being recommended to follow people from my old facebook and I was being recommended to them, too. Social media takes note of factors such as your IP address and device serial and logs them and links all of your accounts together and will recommend new accounts of yours to other you knew before. Go on to the app store right now, Apple have recently started implementing rules in their app store that will tell you what all data these apps collect and what they will do with them (linking identities, etc).
The same thing happened to me on twitter too, a brand new account and it magically knew my birthday, my location (even though I used a VPN) and was recommending old accounts I used to follow. If someone is stalking you it's a matter of time until the algorithm decides to suggest your account to them too because it encourages engagement. As I and other anons are trying to explain, I think you're looking at this too naively and you don't understand how difficult it is nowadays to untie yourself from older identities. Not to say it can't be done and again I agree with all of the steps you've outlined because at the end of the day your personal information should be protected at all costs. Just that it's nowhere near as simple as you're making out because of all of these factors involved.

What you're saying is true anon. I've dealt with the same shit on twitter. Brand new account with fake name, new email, totally out of topic of my other accounts yet it still recommended to myself my old accounts (one dated back from 2015!) and my IRL friends accounts. To my followers too :/. I had to abandon this account and recreate one on a computer that was barely used and had no email or twitter accounts ever logged in. Imagining that I said one "problematic" thing, and that they somehow get my real name, they can get my real address since my internet provider decided to put it on an online phone book (and that it's been 2 whole months since i made an appeal to them AND google to remove it).
All this to say that, even if you're cautious the algorithm can suddenly fuck you over. I feel that you must take more and more steps to be truly anonymous, or hell, not get fucking doxxed on the current web. It wasn't like that in the early 2010s.

No. 793498

Yup, that's what I experienced, too. You can't even easily hop accounts because social media even keeps hashes of the images you post and tries to identify you that way, too… it's so creepy.
That's without even factoring in that all it would take is someone managing to get in to an old account of yours from a data leak or something (which are becoming increasingly common now) and suddenly they can compromise many of your accounts/data and you'll find yourself doxxed because websites force you to submit so much sensitive data and logs things such as your location that anyone with access to your account can see.
Facebook only the other week had a gigantic breach that exposed hundreds of millions of people's names, numbers, email addresses etc. All someone has to do is send a password reset for your art account and if it's successful when you put in the address from the leak, then those people know your real name, phone number, location, where you work etc. People think this would never happen to them but if you have stalkers it's a whole other ball game. Look at how KF operates, when people are obsessed they /will/ spend the time combing through shit just to mess with you.
I also forgot that in places like the US, as you mentioned people's addresses will just be publicly available (and I don't understand how that's legal).
Like you said, unless you are extremely proactive as to how you use the web (fake details, TOR, randomly generated passwords, no repeating emails/use only disposable emails) which lets be real, most people are not, you are liable to fall victim to being in a bad situation.

oh no, I didn't realize they stopped posting! Cancelled for cultural appropriation huh…I'd be honoured to see my culture represented in such a beautiful way…damn.

I wonder if anyone remembers Thousand Skies/Elda The/Ethe? She didn't really stop posting, but she might as well have kek. I used to go on her online gallery Thousand Skies and felt like I was taking a portal to another world. I loved her fantasy illustrations so much and looked up to her a lot. Even the name of the site felt like something grand and amazing to me as a kid. She still has the site thousand skies, but it's now more of a merch store and just doesn't live up to its name. In picrel on the left is the type of art she used to do, on the right is the type of art she does now. Just feels generic and unmemorable to me.

I hope we won't be in this weird loop where along with this bs not drawing a culture is considered also problematic. Trying to navigate with twitter's landmine: representing a culture through a drawing is bad, but not doing so is also bad (in the long term, the question "why are you not including x?" would arise). The only way is to make it extremely performative which feels wrong and artists would refuse to do so, but that enough would be cancel-worthy.

Same thing with artists that will treat you like hitler if you say you like their character because it reminds you of something you like, people that somehow make about you "devaluating their effort" if you say they have talent, and artists that spend more time doing psa's about how saying you can't draw a stick figure is worse than the n word than doing actual art.

Glad that there are people who are noticing this. She has been constantly changing her labels to make herself more special and be included in other spaces since last month. Has the audacity to label herself as neurodivergent, disabled, transgender, and even afro-native/mixed/white-passing BIPOC; then suddenly quietly deletes it from her bio as if no one of her followers would notice the change.

Also, it looks like Orquidiaarte/DestinytoMoon's followers have been decreasing since the callouts she has gotten in her name. Last night, she was at almost 21.9k followers, now it has been dropped to 21.5k as of now and counting.

I'm not even being snarky and not gonna comment on it being suicide bait or not but 100% seriously if twitter drama actually gets you like this you absolutely should get off of social media and there is no reason for you to stay on it and stay so ultra engaged as Jay does. Proof that social media is brain worms.
I really wish people like this would have some introspection on their relationship with social media.

>>794948
Not to be an armchair psychologist but in Jay's case it might be because he's actually been getting hit quite a lot lately. French people weren't taking any shit (both times), he had that oopsy with the accidentally mysoginist comic, then he got a bunch of shit for that that take on FNF, and then someone made a twitter account just to drop tea on him (tbh if I were him I'd be stressed by that one too). Maybe suddenly getting the rug pulled from under his feet this much is causing him a shock.

Either way I reiterate what I said. Being this emotionally atached to social media is bad.

So, Jay gets to bully people on the regular and send her 20k followers after her victim of the day, but the moment it's her facing some shit from randos with no influence she wants to die?
She makes people feel like this on a regular basis for no reason other than she's a sick and bad person who gets her jollies from seeing other people who have never done anything to her suffer.
I wouldn't get any pleasure out of finding out she died or anything but at the same time she won't even learn any empathy for others from this anyway so I have no sympathy for her.

They really kind of are. Tons of extremely popular 2D men (Roy Mustang, Levi, almost everyone in MHA, etc.) look like butch lesbians. Like they actually look weird when a man cosplays them and only look like the character when it's a woman crossplaying.

As much as I would love to agree just because this is the funniest theory ever, I don’t think it’s that deep. Some women (especially if they’re younger) just aren’t into hypermasculine characters, and I also think it’s partially a result of cutesy anime art style. And maybe the creators don’t want to make a character that seems like “competition” for the male viewers who want to bang the female characters lmao.

Could be just art style and making the character appeal to young women (who tend to prefer young and not very muscular pretty men) like the other anon said. I honestly doubt that characters from japanese media created by men could be butch coded in order to make girls gay…

"feminine" men are the most attractive to younger women, it's why boybands get popular. very muscular men are actually gay coded (look at bara and tom of finland) but i don't think it's some conspiracy. pretty/young men can look like butch lesbians naturally. that's a young ralph macchio in the photo, he looks like a woman lmao but when you put a pretty kpop boy next to a kpop girl you can see how masculine they are. anime main characters are drawn as pretty as possible so they'll look more feminine than real men, but it's not deliberately butch coded. when actual butches are depicted in media they are drawn more masculine than real women imo, or ugly fat and unnecessarily hairy. i hate it

I’m sorry if this is a bit off topic to the conversation now as well, but I noticed this artist MawsPaws. She was mentioned/on locked down for a bit for throwing a tantrum over a design that barely looked like hers and is known to be friends with a few cows mentioned on previous threads before.
I’m not a fan of her but it’s one of these moments where looking through twitter for the next ‘scandal’ brought me to her phase.


I couldn’t help but be curious to WHAT situation she’s talking about? She full on had a tangent about white people.

She basically said in her current tweet that she found out she’s mentally ill and taking a hiatus, but it’s weird how she went from “Do not follow me if you’re below 16” to “I’m mentally ill and crying over situation. Ever notice wyt ppl always talk about so and so.”

I was thinking more of the Tajmark situation where a user tried to get her fired from her job that set her off on the ‘wyt ppl’ rant.

Not to mention the kf situation was posted around March. She did retweet something from that artist ironically.

That and ever since the topless situation she put “ suggestive 16+ (gore/nonsexual top nudity)” as a bio. Though there is one question that should be raised, why is she getting all up and offended about a situation that isn’t her place to begin with.

Yes. Their entire clique is full of attention seeking grifters. They’re constantly trying to find reasons on why you should feel bad and pity one person over the other.

Did she really say that "you're all sinful and need to repent"? The disclaimer of her comic was just rambling about muh dystopian health pass and how she's really into Christianity now.

Anons how do you handle payment for commissions? Most artists seem to use paypal and I've seen some who use ko-fi but how do you keep your real name hidden? Afaik paypal will show it unless you have a business account but in my country you'd have to make a seperate bank account under the business name and that's too much work for a few drawings.
This issue is one of the main things that's holding me back from starting up commissions because I really don't want to tie my name to the anime drawings I produce lol. If there's no way around it I'll just have to bite the bullet but I'd like to know if I'm being too paranoid or something, like is it normal for artists to have their real name out?

I can't promise this will work or is smart but I managed to set my paypal name to a shortened version of my middle name and last initial, which was private enough for me. I just set it as that when signing up and it was never called into question, but my reasoning was that if it did get flagged by my bank I could just say it's what I go by IRL. It's not like they can reasonably disprove that.

Again though I may have just been lucky. This was years ago that I made the account, like late 2010s, so it may be stricter now. No idea if it's strictly legal or whatever but I never made more than $300 a year so it probably wasn't worth pursuing either way I imagine.

No. 798084

I use ko-fi because it adds another layer of name protection. I've tested it buying from other artists and I'm not able to see anything other than "payment to [username]" even when I go into the paypal transaction itself. Ko-fi doesn't take a cut and it's honestly easier to use than paypal invoices. Unless I'm wrong, I think it's a pretty safe bet if you need to keep your irl name separate, but I've tested it myself a bit because I have an easily doxxable name.
Also, I have ko-fi send the payments to my business account. Then I transfer the money from that account to my personal, that my bank is attached to. Just to be extra careful.

No. 798103

Thank you for the recommendation! I checked it out and it seems pretty good, the only thing I don't like is that you're not allowed to talk to the commissioner at all, so no possibility to send updates and revise if need be.

>>798084
That's good to know, ko-fi does seem very user-friendly and I would prefer it but I've also read that people were able to see the names through paypal anyway so I'll have to test it out. I've considered making a second paypal too but apparently it's against their guidelines and could get you locked out of your account? But then again, it would only be small amounts of money so maybe not noticable

Same here. Some advice I got was to keep interactions to a minimal and post art without clogging up your feed too much with retweets and weird shit. If you really have to say something, just make another account not associated with the art account whatsoever.

I had a business account for commissions twice, and both times PayPal ended up getting on my ass asking for stuff that proved I actually had a registered business.

Only post art and nothing else. I found it was too difficult to background check who is trouble as a mutual and who isn't so now I don't follow anyone I don't already know. It's safer and less shit ends up on your feed anyway.
Unironically, copy the sakimichan model. People have tried to call her out for years and because she sticks to only posting art it never works.
People who cancel don't care much about people who they know won't react so it's less likely you'll be targeted if you give off the impression that you're someone who doesn't use the internet except to post art and log off.

There's this crazy bitch that follows me on instagram, she's always beefing by herself on her stories/ creating discourse about "woke issues". I didn't notice she was this insane until I saw her stories and now i want to block her but she's mutuals with everyone around me and she's one of my most active followers so she will notice something's off right away.

I was a tryhard edgy teen and made offensive jokes 11 years ago. It's true that whatever you put on the internet, it stay forever. Very cringy stuff I won't defend. I muted many words (it's the best twitter feature) but still get called out for it from time to time, you have to get used to that, especially now that "dunking in QRTs" is a big trend, but it mostly falls flat once your audience changes entirely. To do that I stopped drawing cute stuff, because that art style attracts teen girls. It hurts to say, but all the people who cut ties with me and insisted on trying to ruin me were all women and girls, even much older than me. Men don't give a shit about morality or callouts

Oh wow, thanks for sharing anon. I had some similar worries and figured it was a matter of time until some attention seeking loser made a callout so I jumped identities entirely and cut ties with anyone I knew beforehand. Sorry you had to experience all of that but I admire your strength in being able to deal with it all. I hope you're doing better nowadays.
Sadly, I have noticed the same thing when it comes to callouts and harassment campaigns. It's true that women are mostly targeted but not enough people appreciate that it's also women who are doing the targeting. It's an unfortunate truth, men just don't really get involved in this sort of thing and they don't seem to care very much. I suppose that's another reason why someone like sakimichan is so hard to cancel, her primary audience is coomer men.

I think a lot of people can relate, a decade ago I was an edgelord who couldn't keep my mouth shut and was involved with some dodgy people. I've matured and grown since then, cringe at everything I did during those times and learned from past mistakes but the people I was acquainted with are still around and could dish a ton of shit on me that would get me cancelled in an instant. And I'm pretty sure almost everyone has done something problematic in their past. It's so frustrating that people don't believe in redemption or people growing past their teenager phase or that things were held to different standards 10 years ago. Especially with the steep, sudden rise of the cancel culture past 2015 many things that were considered acceptable in 2010 are now cancel-worthy.

This story really resonated with me. I was called out for similar behavior when I was a high schooler as well. But the thing was that I was hanging out with 20-30 year old fedora neckbeards who hated anything but WASP men.

Obviously, people insisted "well I wasnt a racist that age!" Or "abuse doesnt excuse it."

Eventually I sought out therapy and realized that none of this mattered to me. I drew for fun, not for business so I moved on eventually. I was a big artist (10k+ followers on twitter) and I lost like 80% of my friends.

You learn to let go of it when you realize how unhealthy it was for me trying to please 300 mutuals and meet these peoples standards. Obviously, I am not a racist now. But I realized a lot of my self growth should be for improving myself. Not pleasing my friends with 20k followers.

It helps to temper your expectations that people will care about you. Like someone else said, you can always just post nothing but art and that helps a lot. If you're scared of the vulnerability sm enforces, then don't do it. The kind of followers you get from being overly personal about shit are the kind who are low-key voyeurs or looking for personal cows or they've been trained by the cows to expect that kind of behavior from artists.

You dont have anything to give those kind of people if you don't give them drama and boundary-breaking bullshit, you attract fewer of them. The few you attract will not be your followers, for the most part, just weirdos who want to knock others down a peg. They're easier to ignore as a result, and they'll have very little dirt on you that's real.

There’s A LOT of established industry artists that are against it, just look outside of the nft shill twitter for a day. Your argument of “only bad artists don’t like it” sounds like a massive cope. Also, some people care about personal morals and the environment more than a nebulous opportunity to make money, just because you can’t personally fathom it doesn’t mean everyone else is insincere about caring.

NFTs are a scam anyway and most people involved are bottom feeding and barely making any money out of it. Frankly, having seen the numbers, they would be profiting more and making more steady money by doing $30 comissions.

No. 799368

Sour grapes because it's being marketed as this amazing opportunity for smaller but talented artists when in reality it's just a way for people who already have money, an audience and a brand to make some more money. Sure they can do it if they want, but at least they should be honest with themselves and realize that all they're doing is participating in a shady scam (with shitty rules too) that's not very different from the real life art market that's all about who made an art piece and not the art piece itself.

No. 799369

>>799358
How is the NFT market any different from the gatekeepinng of the usual industry? All the big cashouts have been either set up by big outside players (beeple and christies), professional gallery artists (james jean) or by artists that already had big fanbases on twitter/ig/AS (naked_cherry). Most other nobodies spend their every living hour on twitter self advertising hoping to not lose the money they spent to open up their ETH wallet.

Also the energy spent with social media and public services you NEED to survive in society like cars, food and travel is falsely symmetrical with nfts and just a bad faith argument in general. Yes it spends a lot, but the proportion of people using it is gargantually larger and if you were to break down the total carbon footprint of running twitter by individual user you’d get a very small fraction of the individual carbon footprint of crypto. Also, I don’t know how to tell you that a persons car has long term real world use, unlike your fake pepe tokens.

Also, learn to sage before coming to shill your techno cult in here.

How are NFTs a scam? What makes it a scam? People once said the same thing about Bitcoin, and Doge. As usual, most artist are very financially ignorant, and don't see the bigger picture of why crypto is being so heavily pushed. Sure there are some who may genuinely care about the environmental impact, but why weren't they saying anything before? Cryptoarts been around a while, but no one said shit until Beeple raked in a fortune, and some bigger artist decided to jump on board. That just makes the whole caring about the environment argument seem like fake outrage, and sour grapes, and attempts to discourage more talented, or their completion from climbing higher than them. Also, commissions are a very unstable market, and even if you are a great artist, there's no guarantee that you'll get a line of commissioners waiting and ready as soon as you open slots. NFTs are a risk, dealing with the blockchain and all, but the potential payouts are much more rewarding. I personally know several Crypto artist, including one who crawled his way to the top, and is currently making a good, stable living from it. Even for small time artist jumping in, hoping to ride the way, like all things, it takes time, but the reward are definitely greater. Why should anyone stay down and broke, trying to appease a salty, gatekept industry, when those same group of people won't hesitate to throw you under the bus in the blink of an eye?

People weren’t saying much before because although cryptoart did exist, most people didn’t know about it. The beeple sale and people starting to push it heavily on twitter brought it to public discussion, and that’s why everyone talks (positively and negatively) about it now. “People not complaining about it before” is not the killer argument you think it is, it doesn’t prove they’re jealous of the money, it just proves that it wasn’t a thing the general population knew about before march 2021. It’s simple cause and effect, not some grand conspiracy. If people were generlly favorable to nfts before the sale brought thw market’s existence into public consciousness, it’s because it was a thing only discussed in crypto savvy groups who were already previously favorable to it.

Cryptoart's been around and openly for some time though. People have indeed known about it, but didn't pay it any real mind.

I literally explained how it’s bad in terms of individual carbon footprint. Things being polluting is not a “gotcha”, everything pollutes, the key in discussing crypto polution is breaking down the individual carbon footprint of crypto vs real world stuff, and see that the total vs individual is very, very off. That’s why I said comparing the total of crypto to other polluting things that supplly vital services to billions more people is falsely symmetrical. There’s something inherently wrong with a fake coin economy that is used by a couple million people that spends more energy than the entirety of Argentina.

I think it comes down how NFTs were marketed. NFTs are basically the MLM of art community. The nfts were sold as "savior of small artists" or a way "for small artist compete" but in reality the only people making a bank out of it are the already successful artists who got the connections and the money. These big artist also toss the ball to each other by basically bidding to each other's nfts to boost their worth and get them sold for higher price. The biggest nft websites are also invite only so it basically becomes a rich people hangout while smaller artist who try to get into nfts have to pay some sort of fee to partake in these websites that are usually also less popular.

Now I'm not saying this to shame either, if I were these artists, hell I would totally do the same shit if it got me such an easy money but you cannot ignore the fact that nfts really are just rich people's virtual trading card game where the small artists are just to feed into the system without seeing any of the benefits of it.

there's literally nothing wrong with nfts, the only entry barrier for small artists atm is paying $eth gas fees. but this will eventually be a non-issue once gasless listings become more popular/or it's paid on the buyer's end/art marketplace's end. it already happens on certain exclusive sites which you need invites for.

anyway, eth carbon footprint has always been significantly less than other crypto, such as btc, otherwise nfts wouldn't even be a thing. not doing research about crypto/nfts now will not benefit you if you want to get rich off your art in the future and not have to wageslave for the rest of your life. this literally is the frontier

I'm not against them for some ecobaby nonsense, but they're not a good business strategy if you're not explicitly part of the realistic-but-brushy concept art bro circle of people who are already extremely well known like jaime jones and jpark and lacoste. some weeb-ass art isn't going to go making you 2k if those guys are barely managing it now.

You know what makes the Columbo situation more stupid?

While the doxxing situation it's bad in itself and SHOULD be addressed, she could have addressed the doxxing..Not full on make people worry for her life and safety when she in the end just comes back to post memes.

I mean, even in youtube comments of some videos I have watched had people vaguely mention her situations and used it as an example of how bad minors can be or just cancel culture in general.

She just comes back and post fanart then (Sorry for the shitty translate) in one post just complains about Americans: "The Americans often gives me a stomach ache often that makes me not want to speak English, hahaha"

She's a piece of shit for not only making people believe she was in danger, but a piece of shit for lying about a situation that can happen to people and has happened to an artist. Most people would either try to take legal actions or discuss what happened and the danger it caused or might even say that they'll still make some art but will still be paranoid.

It's just so funny how her fans just ignore what she says about them and doesn't piece the situation that happened, they instead just nod their head for pretty art while probably going after other people for small things.

I recommend Mondi Color Copy 350g for anything ink related. We always used this paper in ink class bc it's very cheap and sturdy. Oh and the surface is super smooth. You'll get 125 sheets (A4) for 14€ or 125 sheets (A3) for 16€.

Late to seeing this - thanks for the suggestion, anon! I actually have a couple huge sheets of bristol board at home, I just never thought to use them for brush & ink since they're quite thick and I'm used to lower gsm. It'll be an interesting thing to try out. Thanks!

I have to admit that before this thread I was missing the forest for the trees (rather, focusing too much on the trees that were large sketch pads because that's what I'm used to) that I didn't stop to consider looking at paper that came in reams/smaller sizes. This has been a very helpful suggestion and I'm excited to look up this brand.

It's been so nice hearing anons' suggestions for paper, thanks all!

No. 800313

then i suggest trying a different approach. as >>800309 >>800279 stated it can easily make you seem like a humblebragging idiot instead which i agree. out of all times i've seen people pull that move, 99% of it i thought the person was trying too hard to look good or cool rather than undermining themselves out of fear of rejection.

if you feel insecure, it looks better to say that the drawing was an 'experimentation' or saying that you're 'trying new things' instead of claiming it's a sketch. people may understand or go easier on it and won't think that you're humblebragging.

Her art is okay, but it's not 'great' for what a 19 year old can do. From the other post, in the top right corner you can clearly see a bit of fucked up faces/face shapes there and from this piece, the hand is weirdly shaped.

I will admit the hair on the character is adorable, but how her face is made and her body is just so strange to me or maybe I'm being a bit too mean.

You're not Yukibunns, you're not Thumin. You're not even Creepshow Art or Hopeless Peaches in terms of views where you'd even get sponsored. Like shut the fuck up.

Looking through the artists retweeting and possibly participating in this indigenous art kickstarter project none of them seem to tweet or rt anything about non native folk not being able to draw anything inspired by our culture. At least one artist I know participating in the project isn’t a larper, they’re Cree and mohawk and knowing them for years they never cared about ppl drawing native characters/art. The only thing they ever had a strong opinion against were ugly arts and crafts dream catchers.Personally I don’t care either as long as the art aren’t racist caricatures but ironically all the totally not white “native of unknown nations” Twitter artists crying about cultural appropriation are just larpers who draw native people hairy, with hooked noses and ugly.

What part of "you are the company you keep" does this sperg not understand? Of course there are going to be similarities between the art styles of two people who hung out for nearly a decade. JC Leyendecker and Norman Rockwell were close friends, and laypeople mix up their work all the time.

I would even go so far as to say that these two Twitter artists have less in common than two friends typically would, and that most of their similarities are the result of both of them being generic Instagram anime girl artists. It's fucking retarded to accuse someone of copying what was really generic to begin with, especially with such scant evidence.

"Art style theft" has got to be the most petty, vendetta-driven thing someone can get angry at another artist for. Here's a thought: if your art style is that easy to imitate well, maybe it wasn't a very good style to begin with.

I'm sorry if this is a dumbass and open question, but seriously why is there always that one artist that cries about someone stealing their design?

This situation just reminds me of MawsPaws and how she went on a crying tangent about how someone stole her design despite it not even look the same.

It could be because of ego due to being relatively known and popular.

I'm really sketchy when it comes to webtoon but it seems like it's the only best place where you can post comics in unless I haven't been searching enough.

Also do anyone find the false advertisement or the advertisement of comics do the creator dirty?

Webtoon is pretty much the go-to place right now for webcomics if you want to reach more people, at least as far as I’ve seen. A few years ago I heard about artists leaving Tapas because they didn’t like some terms of service changes but idk how things are there nowadays. When I was first getting into webcomics I used to love Smackjeeves but it’s kind of dead/dying now… Making your own website used to be more common but that would probably be too much trouble if you’re just making something casual.

And yeah, Webtoon ads can be cringy but I guess they just haven’t found a good way to advertise comics in a video, and I think it’s also because they’re trying to reach a mainstream audience so they decided to be clickbaity. Only once have I checked out a webtoon because of an ad because most of them are annoying.

To be honest sometimes I fear that if I make a webcomic on webtoon and it somehow manages to get video advertisements or just instagram adverisements, it'll completely slander/go against what the comic may stand for or focus on the cliche romance stories than the whole plot which worries me a bit.

I never really use webtoon as much simply due to a lot of stories just really not appealing to me or getting me hooked at all. I feel like I need to at least like the site before I post things otherwise I might just regret making any project on there if that makes sense? Maybe it's that overthinking part of me and the side of me that just dislikes so much of the art style and stories there.

I’m pretty sure the ads are only for comics that have been officially sponsored by Webtoon, not just anybody on there will get an ad made for their comic, so unless you get super popular and decide to partner with Webtoon then you shouldn’t have to worry.

Webtoon is pretty great if you like cheesy romance stories, but there are also some hidden gems not focused on romance if you can find them, though it might take a bit of digging. Personally I feel it’s better to read the already completed ones so you don’t have to wait for updates or risk the comic being discontinued when you’ve already invested in it (not usually a problem with sponsored comics since I’m pretty sure the creators are contracted to finish them eventually). As for art style, a lot of the sponsored comics are translated from Korean so they’ll have the art style that’s popular there, that cutesy anime-esque style, not a problem for me but I can see how others wouldn’t like it. It’s either that or Tumblr/Twitter style comics by Americans. Again, you can dig around for something different but those styles are most popular on there right now.

Looks like someone kept filing DMCA reports against Yueko and got her account suspended.

Someone in the thread mentioned it seems to be targeted towards artists that supported NFTs and that it may be an attempt at doxxing. If that is true ngl that's pretty fucked up

Just me, but I have a hunch this might be someone loosely affiliated with Jay. The tale tale sign will be if the people this is happening specifically to the ones he's gone after, and harassed.

This just seems like more reasons to why twitter isn't safe for artists or a lot of people in that fact excuse me if I sound biased. But the fact that we came from people arguing about pro shipper vs anti shipper and fandoms trying to harass artists for their drawings while trying to call them pedophiles, how there is artists who starts petty drama over art styles or simply by asking people to support their project and get ganged up on by people who want to be white saviors/sensitive/want to fake their race and gender. Now it's artists getting DMCAS and their account locked/banned. I don't even think twitter would do a damn thing about it.

I get that twitter is a popular website to post art and more and it's more open with NSFW artwork than Instagram is, but I just think the website isn't worth breaking your back over to be a great artist.

Yeah, it's people who support things you don't agree with such as ships and now NFT, but my Lord why waste your time reporting them and ruining their accounts and art when they aren't harming anyone or you especially.

when you're a vindictive terminally onliner with too much time on your hands you'll spend it getting into internet wars. i suspect it'll only get worse since the false dmca claim seems to be effective in getting accounts suspended

it's better to fight back these community issues instead of just leaving, to be honest. If the death of tumblr proved anything, it's that these issues don't die with the site but move to a new one and get even worse.

Maybe? However neither Yueko or orangesekai have any affiliation with anyone from Jay's group or circle of friends. AFAIK, I haven't seen either of them comment on the SJW meltdown and i don't recall jay going after either Yueko or Orange either.

I don't know if this technically counts (I think it does since this youtuber makes art of his oc or used to), but there is currently a war/storm around the youtuber Commodore.

Cosmo was a YouTuber who first got into trouble when it was found out he was grooming a minor age 14-15 and stated the age of consent was 14 while being 20. Yes, old news.. But surprisingly a few days ago Cosmodore would return to youtube and twitter with an announcement that he 'relapsed' into grooming minors again and ADMITS to it.

I can't tell if this man is having a mental breakdown which is causing him to try to make this situation a "Haha look at these people be sensitive snowflakes" or something else. He came back before this as well trying to blame the victim still and make excuses as well when the victim wanted to move on.

My mind is just blown at the fact that this guy keeps digging himself in a deeper hole with his situation.

I'm sorry for a while I was struggling to add the right screenshots due to the problem of cropping, the full thing can still be found on his community tab.

I never understood why pedos act like “sorry it’s just SO hard, I NEED to get into a child’s DMs”- like where’s the thought process while they’re talking to a minor??? Where’s their therapist?

The reason I arrived at this hunch, is because Jay was really harassing Yueko for her on the fence, semi support of NFTs, and really harping on the fact that she didn't give him the apology he felt entitled to. I'm just being hypothetical, but it's interesting that this would happen to Her.

What's more weird is when they always say, "I'm getting therapy." He has stated he got therapy before but then comes back to do things like this.

This man has admitted and supported a friend and stated it as well. He supports his friend who is 30 dating a 13 year old due to age of consent which is just beyond the point of saving.

Some people are currently trying to make this a case where it's false accusations and SJWs are disliking age gaps again but holy shit, this is beyond that at this point and someone who doesn't know when to shut the fuck up about cases.

He's a creepy disgusting groomer and what he's doing is actually criminal. Age in consent in germany is 14 if both parties are minors, the fact that he's trying to pass it off to his young naive audience as legal and socially accepted behaviour in germany is disgusting. I can't deal with pedos acting like they are some kind of oppressed class

Like, the fact that pedos don’t understand why grooming/dating someone under 18 is bad and just think “oh the world doesn’t understand” “they’re past the age of consent” or the famous “it was acceptable in Ancient Rome” is disgusting. It’s so selfish and it further proves that they only think about themselves and their satisfaction out of the relationship

I kind of laughed at her basically begging for viewers and customers but then it just got kind of sad. She really seems to not realize that her content and her art is outdated and uninspiring. She seems to think grinding away at youtube will just naturally grow fans over time or something. Most popular art channels are fall into one of five types; story time, drama, entertaining gimmicks, professional industry advice or incredible technical skill. Sakuems doesn't fit into any of these categories. She's boring in every way.

idk her I had to google and only watched the first few minutes and she doesn't sound "big mad" more like frustrated.

I think she fell behind on times and is having a hard time understanding why or how to get engagement back up.

I normally don't have an issue with mocking artists on this thread (it's why I'm here in the first place) but those people are usually out of their mind or attack others but she seems to just be doing her own thing so making fun of her and her appearance in particular is uncalled for in my opinion.
