dA still alienates gay community with prejudiceSince the beginning of this site, dA has been repeatedly criticized for its homophobic approach to art. Homosexual couples (specifically male-male representations because lesbians are hawt, guys) in particular have been repeatedly targeted by the site's admins for deletion, an occurrence so pervasive that one deviant, reapersun was able to hold an entire contest to attempt to illustrate the line of discrimination.dA still alienates gay community with prejudice by missveryvery
You might say, "the site is simply prudish!" Not true. They have an entire section labeled "fetish". Pictures of women having intercourse with tentacle monsters? De rigeur. Buick sized breasts oozing buckets of milk? Fine. But two consenting adults (especially male adults) touching? Kissing? My GOD, what filth!

I'm saving up for a dA hoodie - specifically this one here deviantwear.deviantart.com/art… , the PressPlay Headphone Hoodie. I lost most of my jackets in the flood to sewerage damage - one survived, and winter is fast approaching!
Thank you :hugs: in advance!
