Happy Cinco de Mayo!
So, my darlings,
We must have a talk.
I know we have gone over this in various conversations, long-winded replies, multiple journals, etc.... but apparently I haven't beaten this dead horse well enough.....(frustrated huff)....***If you are messaging me in any regard concerning my availability to do pornography/explicit poses, you are not understanding the purpose of my art!***
On my front page, the following is listed under my deviantID artist info:
To promote love and acceptance of our fellow human beings no matter their size, gender, race, or religion and realizing no other person should be diminished in the pursuit of another’s artistic expression and freedoms."
I understand this is a difficult concept for most males who think my body is sexy. I am OKAY with you thinking I'm a sexy, big and beautiful woman. I have absolutely no problem being B.B.W. or fat or whatever else you want to call me. I wish you would have a little more to say about the artistry of my photos, but I do understand not everyone is going to look at my photos and come away with "art".
No, my objection is artistic nude photography qualifying as "pornography" -- not because you masturbate to it, because God knows there's plenty of artistically done pornography -- but because IT IS NOT MY INTENTION TO GET YOU HORNY!
Pornography and photography are all about intention. And yes, we can skirt around the fine line between pornography and artistic nudes, but I think in my case it's a pretty clear line. If I find it artistic, I'll do it. Nothing is posted without artistic integrity put into consideration.
Here's the bottom line: Whether you think I'm sexy or not, it makes no difference to me.
Because I'm not here to get you horny or for praise, it also means I'm not looking for validation
. I don't need you to tell me I'm sexy. I certainly don't mind, because I could spend all day yelling at the people who call me sexy but I know most of them don't mean anything raunchy by it. I know I'm sexy and beautiful AND fat - I love it.
I don't give a shit what other people think, but I'm an artist. I come here to make art. I would like to be respected like every other artist on this site and I am sick and tired of people being complete dickheads because I won't do porn. Yes, I'm a nude model. No, I'm not a porn star.
To those people: FUCK YOU!
Frankly, I'm just going to go the route where I just don't reply to you. You are not worth my time and effort. This is the last I have to say on the matter.
PS: To those who are porn stars, bravo to you. This is not a criticism of pornography, only that I (personally) am not comfortable with starring in it.
