sorry if this post is a bit virtue signal-ly but with all these artists coming out of the woodwork to defend awful shit every two months because they don’t want to ever have any responsibility for the stuff they make and/or endorse, trust issues with other artists has definitely been a thing with me and I’m sure its rightfully the case for others as well, so at the very least I wanted to state my stance on it. mentions of abuse under the cut
anyway, despite not having the energy to do anything particularly substantial, I take my role as an artist and a grown-ass adult very seriously, especially when attempting to represent and depict certain characters and themes. taking an abusive scenario and making it jack off material specifically FOR an audience that wants to jack off to it, is something that is definitely not coping nor is there any excuse for it. especially considering a lot of the people this is being posted publicly at may not even think this sort of thing being depicted even exists in real life. “fiction vs reality” my ass, the reality is the way these people handle their content and what they give to their audience is completely irresponsible
and responsibility is hard, and its hard to know what hurts people. but regardless, like any form of representation and communication, we play a part in how abuse is seen and that is something people really have to own up to.we don’t exist in a vacuum.
so yeah thats all I got. as a footnote I am aware the characters I draw have siblings and are a bit on the youngish side, so if you follow me to sexualize my work and/or support incest/cp, that stuff isn’t tolerated here and the exit is thataway
