THIS IS THE FIRST IN A LINE OF "ODDGUY EDUCATES" ARTICLES. i will be spamming EDF with these. read them and learn. it's a soft porn gallery. that's it. that is all the "artistic nude" section of deviantart is. Honestly,just look at it. nothing but page after page of glamor shots.teenage girls who take a shot of their tits and put a black and white filter over them.a few of them will try to be "artistic" but when they do it's always the same thing. they take a pic of themselves naked holding a soup can and name it "soup can"... wow... what ? TOO DEEP FOR YOU ?! or sometimes it's just a picture of her pussy or ass with some cutesy bullshit name like "rear view" or "back door" or "junk in the trunk" or some other fucking euphemist. it's all an excuse for these underage ho's to post naked pic's of themselves on the internet without being called whores. and it works ! just read the comment section to any of these ! it's always something like: "wow ! so deep !" "it's beautiful !" "i rly liek tha lighting !" (yeah,that's what you were just jerking off to,the lighting.) and there is always some guy who will just out and say it: "wow,you have rly nice tits !" but the "model" never gets angry at these guys,why would she ? i mean,that's all she really wanted,compliments about her ass. And those are just the ones that put effort into it ! for every psudo artistic picture,there are three fat girl angle shots,and two dudes who took pictures of their dicks in front of the bathroom mirror with their cellphone camera. these people use DA as an imageshack for shitty home made porn. but the real question is: "is there really a need for an artistic nude section ?" no ! there is not ! what is it about something so specific that it needs it's own gallery ? imagine if everyone started taking pictures of themselves with tricycles and they opened an "artistic tricycle" gallery. so why do people take so many nudes of themselves and post them on DA ? well,first of all,all the reasons mentioned previously.the chance to practice some exhibitionism and receive praise rather then face consequences. some people might say that the reason is to keep the naked pictures in a separate part of the site so that kids wont look at them.bullshit. if that is true,why is there no "adults warning" when entering the section ? and why is DA already filled with a shitload of cartoon fetish porn ? bullshit. but there is another reason.it's because nudity is an overused trope. it's an overly obvious use of symbolism that doesn't really mean anything,but gives it's pretentious user the ability to seem deep and artistic without implementing any effort at all.all these butterflies,black and white pictures,lone trees standing in meadows and broken mirrors... so deep and symbolic ! also it's gives guys the chance to ask their friend who they have a huge boner for to "pose" for an "artistic" pictures,and if the bitch falls for it he gets a free nudie shot of her,which is good,because otherwise he wound never a chance to see her naked. you wanna know why the "artistic nude" section REALLY stays open ? it's provides the admins with a steady stream of underaged porn. if you read this,you are now educated. your welcome.
