To my surprise, the idiots at DA finally realized I had another photograph in my gallery that offends them.  I was wondering how long it would take.

This photo was of a decayed opossum, taken very artistically.  It was just bones and hair, and, in my own artist's opinion, a fitting tribute to the death of a living thing.

I'm a buddhist, not some sick, sadistic weirdo.  I honor living things, and part of that honor comes with death.  But no one on the staff seems to realize that.

As I've said in the past, I will no longer post my work on this community.  My serious pieces are not respected, and that is highly offensive to me.

The only reason I am leaving up what I have previously posted is so that hopefully, someone will run across my page and read about the severity of the censorship that goes on here.  

I realize that this site is not a public forum, and all content is at the mercy of the art gods who run it.  I just joined with the hopes of receiving critiques from other artists.  Well, those hopes were certainly dashed to pieces.  

I'm sorry, guys, but there's nothing "deviant" about being closed-minded fucks.  If Salvador Dali were still alive, and wanted to post his painting, "The Lugubrious Game," would you censort THAT simply because it portrays a man who's shit his pants in the lower righthand corner?  Everyone's seen a dead animal, and everyone's shit their pants.  Neither are so shocking that they cannot be handled by any person with average sense and intellegence.  But, nowadays, our society wants to protect everyone from everything that might make them the slightest bit uncomfortable.

I hate to tell you, but no one has ever become famous for following all the rules and being tame and ordinary.
