Hee hee hee...
I haven't even touched this site since the last time I signed in and I feel bad, especially since I'm going to rant about the stupidness on dA, which slightly has something do with this. So, I was going through the large list of three deviations from various artists that I watch when I stumbled upon an InuYasha fanart of InuYasha and Kagome that looked... cute at most - it isn't my favorite pairing, least favorite actually, as I prefer Kagome to be paired with Sesshoumaru, but that doesn't matter. The artist would not post a more "graphic" version of that piece, due to new rules that were posted that prevents any form of fictional child pornography - which left absolutely no loopholes what so ever that I could find - so she wouldn't have to go through the hassel of it being taken off the site by the moderators. This means that even you up the age of the characters, it still doesn't fly because there "isn't a normal age process in fiction" (this isn't an actual quote, but it is close enough for me.) Even art pieces that show tasteful nudity have been taken off due to fictional child pornography!
My questions are, why should it matter if it's "child pornography" if the "children" are FICTIONAL? and what if the original piece that fanart is being done for already contains child pornagraphy?
