just wanted to answer this iopichio.deviantart.com/journa…
in a journal rather than in a hundred comments.
Yes, I agree that porn doesn't rule out art or vice-versa,
I actually have a "life goal" which is precisely to demonstrate the world that porn can be art.
We all know that general society will disagree on this, since history leads us to believe in "porn" or "eroticism" as something generally negative.
"degrading women" is a saying I absolutely HATE
, and that ALWAYS will come up when talking about this.
because nowadays, everyone who says that, is practically saying "men use women for sex"
and obviously, this CANNOT POSSIBLY work the other way,
because women are pure beings similar to fucking angels
and whatever they do, they are innocent,
making the men the demon lords of earth (sarcasm, in case anyone can't figure it out)
all of that leads to the feminist movement I have a strong problem with, but that's another story.
I remember showing my art teacher my erotic drawings, of both pretty women and men.
the answer to my work was "why don't you think of WHY you draw women like this"
firstly; she was quite obviously implying that this work was objectifying women.
secondly; just because the figures were beauteous, she assumed they were women.
men are kind of condemned to not ever be as accepted as women,
women were the victims of society for a very long time yes,
but I think that nowadays the situation has sort of changed making men more incapable to do things than women,
you will never tell a woman what she can and can't do,
but you will tell a man that watching "My Little Pony" is wrong, while a chick is perfectly fine watching "The Expendables"
And as much as men are still being paid more than women in many places in this world, women will be the ones to fight, and win.
Because society has clarified after history that "men are bastards"
So making pornography of women will generally say that I, the one drawing it, is a man, and a bastard.
When in fact I'm a 20 year old lesbian woman, that many people think is underage.
Well I think that to accomplish my "mission", I'll just keep drawing whatever the hell I want,
because I, being capable as I am to talk through art, will.
