Why do people look down on artistic nudes?

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 17, 2014, 11:05 PM
  • Mood: Confused


It honestly baffling how most of the teenagers and some adults on this website claim to be "artist" or "want to get into an art college", yet in the same breath, if you asks what they think about Artistic Nudity, they'll give you the most cringe-worthy answer.

"Artist nudes are nothing but porn"

"This is deviantArt, not deviantPorn."

"People who post nudes on dA are just embarrassing themselves. They're just doing it for attention."

"People who post or look at nudes are just perverts."

"Posting your dick or your tits on dA isn't art."

"There are children on this site!"

"When they say artistic nude, all they mean is drawings. They don't mean photos of porn!"

"I've clicked the artistic nude category. It's disturbing and disgusting to say the least."

"I don't respect nude artist because it's just a person standing there naked. It shouldn't be classified as art."

"Artistic nudes is just a lazy way of modeling."   

My face when I here these sort of things coming from actual human beings(who claim to be artist) in the twenty-first century:




Now, let's get one thing straight, it's perfectly fine if you don't like artistic nudes. I understand if this type of art isn't your cup of tea and it's something you're not fond of. There're people in the world who has Gymnophobia, meaning the fear of nudity. It's natural for people to shy away from nudity, seeing that some aren't really comfortable with nakedness. If you don't like artistic nude, that's your opinion and this journal isn't about differentiating opinions. This journals is about people who, for some reason, believe that they are the judge, jury, and executioner of what art is/should be and who obviously wants to discredit something beautiful and are trying to make it shameful.

"Artist nudes are nothing but porn"

"This is deviantArt, not deviantPorn."


I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Artistic nude isn't porn. If nothing pornographic is happening, it isn't porn. Here's the FAQ if you're not convinced. FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be?

"Artistic nudes is just a lazy way of modeling."

I cannot tell you how many times I've seen these types of comments on this site. There's a reason why artistic nudes exist. (And, no, it isn't for your fantasies) The reason that there's artistic nude on dA is because many people use these photos for references when drawing sketches, poses, or for anatomy practice. Most people look at these pictures to understand how the body move and twist, the expression of the face, and for the various poses that they can create. For some of you people to try and discredit nudes because you think it's "...a lazy way of modeling," I could have the same closed-minded argument on Digital Art.

Many people could say that "Digital art shouldn't be on the popular page of dA because digital art it's a lazy way of drawing because you're not drawing. Your computer is doing most of the hard work while you're just scribbling on an expensive piece of plastic that's connected to the computer." Yet, you don't hear that kind of talk on dA because most of the members on here would start a freaking riot. Apparently, it alright to discredit artistic nude, but it isn't alright to talk bad about digital art. How that works, I have no clue. :shrug:  

"I've clicked the artistic nude category. It's disturbing and disgusting to say the least."

"There are children on this site!"

I mean, honestly, what's so "disturbing" and "disgusting" about that category? I looked into it, and I saw nothing but naked women with the occasional naked men sprinkled within. It makes me laugh when I hear the "Think of the children! 8C" excuses. Yes, technically, if you aren't 18 or over (in most countries), you're still consider a child, but on dA, you have to be at least 13 to sign up. If I remember correctly, when you hit the age of 13, puberty starts to happens to you, meaning changes in the body, the traditional "talk" you have with your parents or Sex Ed, at school, and hormones start to change as well. If you're child is 13, and has yet to see a diagram of the human body, much less an actual picture of a naked person, then it's safe to say that someone has failed in the health department.

"People who post nudes on dA are just embarrassing themselves. They're just doing it for attention."

Like I said, these people who do these photos are doing it to help you ingrates out. Just think how difficult it must be for the models to strip in front of everyone, and instead of looking at them in an artistic perspective, we have closed minded people judging them because, apparently, they believe they have higher morals than others.

"People who post or look at nudes are just perverts."

Hey, idiots, you're on a website that post artistic nudes daily. If you know what nudes are, then that means that you, at one time, have seen nudes. Unless you take a bath/shower with you bathing suit on, you've seen yourself nude. So, in theory, many of you criticizing nudes would be a pervert, you perverts. Also, great job stereotyping people that uses nudes, like artist, photographers, and people who are in the medical field, who uses nudes to get a better understanding of a human body and what happens to it, so that they can help cure you better. I'm sure you're just showing your appreciation for their hard work by calling them pervert.     

"When they say artistic nude, all they mean is drawings. They don't mean photos of porn!"

If they meant drawings, then why is there only one artistic nude category that can be only found in photography section? Very strange...


"I don't respect nude artist because it's just a person standing there naked. It shouldn't be classified as art."
 
Oh, really? Then I guess that fashion photography, hell, any photography shouldn't be consider art, since it just people/objects standing there either. It honestly annoys me that you people can't even have the common decency to respect someone's artistic craft. When other artist have to make stamps like this:
   
Respect The Models by zananeichan
and this:

Respect The Models Sign XXL by SnakeStarXXX

on an art website, where we should be mature enough to respect everyone and not be snooty d-bags, is pretty eye opening. 

"Posting your dick or your tits on dA isn't art."

Neither is spamming journals about your life, yet everyone, including me, has done this and no one has called anyone out for it not being art related. Also, if it fits in the category of artistic nude, then I would say that many people, including dA Staff, believe it's art. So, unless I missed a memo, I don't remember anyone renaming you the "Lord and Judge of All Art" so you can stop acting like it.


My point of this whole rant is that artistic nude is art. it's been around since the Renaissance Era and farther back. The folds of a woman's vagina is no less artistic than the folds in linen curtains and the wrinkles in a man's penis is no less "disgusting" than the winkles in a shirt. We're all artist here and we should all be mature about the human body, seeing that we all have one. Let's respect one another craft and stop getting on our high horses, thinking that we're better than everyone else.

That just my thoughts. :)
