Variety is what makes the world worth exploring. I'm fine with that. I dig it. However, in the same way that I loathe Brussels Sprouts no matter how somebody else cooks them or how wonderful others tell me they are, there are things which I will neither understand nor tolerate.
If depictions of women (or men, for that matter) trussed up like Thanksgiving turkeys, gagged, beaten, bleeding, dead, abused, or otherwise mistreated are what excite you, we cannot interact on any level. How this can be classified as harmless entertainment frankly baffles me. DeviantArt's regulations which seem able to allow "artistic violence" but forbid peaceful sexuality do not quite make sense to me, either. The planet has plenty of ugliness. I, for one, come to DeviantArt in hopes of escaping that ugliness for a time.
So please understand that if your tastes lean toward what I consider ugliness, I'm not going to appreciate my artistic efforts being lumped into your favorites collection of kidnap victims and dismembered corpses. I will block your access to my images as soon as I can. You don't have to agree with me; I'm not so presumptuous as to expect anyone's tastes to change on my account. The point of my posting this journal entry is simply to prevent a bit of resulting wasted time.
I do not want Brussels Sprouts on my digital plate.
Thank you for your understanding,
