Stamp: Be Mature. by 8manderz8 Stamp: Be Mature. by 8manderz8
I get it. You don't like looking at it. Hell, I'm very much like you. I hate accidentally clicking on vore - it makes me feel physically ill. I think this whole 'furry' thing that seems to have members of deviantART by the balls is bizarre, as is the fascination with my little pony and the occasional sexualization of these kids show characters.

But there's a difference between not liking something and being an immature ass about it.

This type of behavior is annoying as hell to me, and I'm sure it is to others. If you don't like looking at something because it's weird/gross/disgusting/whatever, then don't linger. Don't stick around long enough to leave a smart-ass comment about how disgusting said fetish is.

It's immature, you come off as a douche for getting in these people's shit about their hobbies/sexual fetishes, and it only invites people to get on your ass about your own practices in the future.


To the fans of these different fetishes/hobbies/art themes/whatever, I support you guys, really, I do. If you're being safe and not harming people or doing anything illegal, then I'm all for you guys expressing yourselves the way you want. Truly.

Additionally: I know this theme of stamps is common nowadays. But I thought I'd give my :twocents:

There are some things that some people may have as a fetish but sometimes that exact fetish which other people have may have other reasons for having that fetish 


sorry for my crappy grammar, what I meant was people have other reasons for having a fetish other than it being sexy, i.e someone finds fat funny or someone finds tied up cute

I hate fetish art, and I try my best to avoid it, but the problem is, I can't exactly "move on" from it that easily when I do stumble across it.

Now, don't get me wrong, I don't linger and comment mean things about it. I just want to get away as fast as I can. But mentally, I just can't move on in some cases. It causes me a great deal of stress, and I can't understand why some people are attracted to such gross and ugly things. In fact, a lot of fetishes basically seem like physical torture. Cannibalism. Horrible things. I don't care if it's not real, it's still disturbing to think about. It's creepy, and sometimes I just have to question the morals of these people. Even if I don't necessarily hate the artists, they do kind of scare me, because I just don't know or understand what's going on in their head.

And seriously, when I see vore, inflation, or some other form of fat fetishism involving my favorite characters, I feel like it really chips away at my sanity. Once glance and these images are burned into my memories, and I can't figure out how to fully forget about them. They're like scars.
At one point, fetish art actually started to ruin my love for one of my favorite characters. It made me feel really upset, and I was stressed for a few days, debating on whether or not I should let go of my love for the character so that I wouldn't be so bothered by fetish art of them. Thankfully, I recently decided against that, because I know I would just be lying to myself.
And even when I try to avoid the fetish art, I still come across it sometimes when browsing. No matter how hard I try to avoid this stuff, I can never truly escape it. It really makes me feel helpless sometimes, because the only way to escape it forever is if I never went on the Internet ever again, and I'm not ready to give that up.

I also feel like drawing fetish art in general is incredibly disrespectful to the creator of the characters involved (unless you're using your own OCs or something). Fetishes have actually discouraged me from following my desired career of a game designer or cartoonist, because I tend to get attached to my creations. I don't want to see people basically mutilating them for sexual pleasure. I feel like it's wrong, and people who do that really need more self-control. And when people draw fetish art of characters from games and such, it causes people to hate on the entire fandom for that game, and that's really saddening. Fetish artists are essentially killing the things that they say they love, both in the art (when the fetish itself involves death) and with the source material's reputation (the fetish art makes people hate the game when it's not the game's fault).

Also, after reading the description, I'd just like to point out that being a furry isn't a fetish in itself. At least, not always. That's a misconception. While some people draw sexual art of furries, it's no different from people drawing sexualized art for any other fandom. It's a shame that the furry community as a whole gets blamed for stuff like this. There IS clean furry art, and I myself (as a furry) hate the sexual side of the fandom. I'm not entirely sure how or why furries got such a stigma attached to them. It's a shame.
I'm pretty sure the same thing can also be said for Bronies. If they like the show, that's fine. If they sexualize the characters, then it's not. And not every Brony sexualizes the characters. I'm sure some of them might even be against it, much like I am when it comes to furries.

But yeah, this is just how I feel about this whole situation. Fetishes are really tearing me apart since I hate them so much. Not only do they make me feel physically ill when I see them, but they also give me a lot of anxiety as the memories of them keep lingering throughout the day. I wish I could just forget about them forever, and never see them again, but that's just not gonna happen. And it frustrates me to no end, which only works to increase my hatred for them.

You know, this reminds me... I wish DeviantArt had a blacklist/filtering feature, where you could type in key terms and words that would then be blocked out when browsing or searching. That would be wonderful.

Have you considered going to other safer art sites? I understand hating fetish art, even though I'm pretty neutral about it but I don't think fetish art should be messing with you this much.
Like if I come across some disgusting fetish art of one of my fav characters, I honestly brush it off. That fetish art isn't doing anything to taint my love for the source material and it's honestly very harmless. I move on and let that person enjoy drawing what they want, unless it's something like scat than that's not right.
But if it's stressing you out this much than you might need to go to another site or grow a backbone about it.

Sadly, I don't know of any other art sites. Or at least, not ones that would be free of fetish art. Do you know of any?

And it's not so easy for me to brush it off right away. Over time, I can eventually forget about it, and still enjoy the source material, but I guess it's just the thought of people combining something I love with something I despise that makes me so angry. And the fact that there's nothing I can do about it just adds to my frustration.

alright, now

here's my stance on the whole thing

I don't mind tame fetishes, nothing too extreme, you know the sort of thing - however I seriously cannot get behind anything to do with internal organs/bodily functions/inflation/padding because honestly what the fuck is the appeal? I don't get how people get hot under the collar when they see an enlarged stomach/literal excrement/a piece of clothing intended for babies and old people unable to control their bladders

and tbh there are artists out there who don't make whatever fetish they have the focus of their whole gallery, whether it be tits or ass or feet or whatever, and that's fine, some of the art is pretty fuckin' neato and I can appreciate it - same thing with some people that do make their fetish the focus of their gallery - I can appreciate good art, even if it's vaguely/fully fetish-y, hell, I watch a couple artists who do fetish art and I don't really care (but I mean if it's feet-related and the focus is directly on the feet and it's intended to be lewd rather than just an interesting POV then I'd rather not have people I know/the public see that somewhere in my faves because seriously it could fuck my shit up in the long run)

...but then you have your "CaseyDecker"s and your "RichardDawson"s (and honestly shame on this guy for tarnishing the man's memory and name like this) that go one step further by painfully trying to initiate cringeworthy RPs in the comments (btw I don't mind RPs as long as you're not anyone resembling these two mentally unstable/immature sacks of shit) and not even putting the proper amount of effort into it

you use these " not these : and you only make one person speak at a time not have every character speak oddly specific lines about their body parts and what they want you to do to them/talk to your Gary Stu epic awesome self-insert OC in creepy The Shining unison, who the fuck are you, Travis2017 with his circumcision robotic-character fetish?

Casey has his own prestigious Encyclopedia Dramatica page which tbh is not a good sign - if you somehow come across him when you post something fetishy involving a furry character, expect him to say something like "This picture you've drawn of your own original character/*character* doing *insert something here* is awesome! :D :D :D" so fucking don't even bother with him

and Richard's one of the cringeworthy RP people/Microsoft Paint users that chop off pictures of characters and draw poorly-drawn feet onto the bottoms of them with the fucking default MS Paint colors - fucking fuck off

DeviantArt is for people over 13 - you may be older than that but mentally you need to stop acting like you're underage

Thank you. Some time ago on my other account, @/buddywatplz, I drew a non-fetish related picture of one of my OCs based off a screencap. While I didn't think if it as such, someone did… an wooo boy it was a doozy. I can't quite remember what they said, but all I remember is them wishing death to me and all brony fetishists (the OC was a pony so yeah). When I tried to get back, to see who this guy was, he was deactivated. I was kinda pissed off and since then I've been to make sure that any pics that might have something seen as fetish art have a disclaimer that it is not even related to it.

Like you said, it's fine to have a fetish within some standards and it's just as fine to dislike them with standards as well. If you hate on a piece for accidentally clicking, or better yet look for the damn art for a reason to get mad, I don't think it's the fetishist's problem.

The thing that really sets me off about fetish fanart isn't so much that it's gross but seeing my favorite, most cherished characters being depicted in degrading fashion (e.g. getting turned to stone; harmless but the intent to degrade & humiliate is there). It's not exactly a holier-than-thou issue- we've all got our skeletons- but it's definitely hitting an emotional chord when I run into it.

But I'm glad you posted this deviation, stamp + commentary. It's a welcome reprieve. ^_^

Ah, yes, I used to be one of those people who just couldn't get over fetish art. I remember one time where I saw an animation of an anthro Vaporeon (ya' know, from Pokemon) going through breast expansion (I think that's what it was). I threw such a shit fit, and still resent the way I acted, to this day. :no: I still get angry comments about it, despite the fact that I settled the argument with the artist. Oh, well, that's consequences, for ya'.

I agree and I am a person who doesn't like fetish art. It's ok to not like it, it's ok to explain why you don't like it and some of it can get a person in trouble for good reason, but being the bigger person comes first and most fetishists will not bother you if you do not bother them. That and it's never ok to be rude or hurtful about it. Angry words only lead to angry solutions. Being civil is FTW.

Thanks for making this. I usually don't mind furry art, but I don't really care for vore stuff because some of it is pretty gross. I get having vore art for Cell from Dragon Ball Z since that did happen in the actual show. It was still pretty disturbing though. I actually had nightmares about him absorbing 17 and 18 after I watched DBZ Kai.

I'm glad to see that there's another person who doesn't get the obsession with My Little Pony. Seriously, the last time I gave a crap about My Little Pony was when I was like four. I don't get why not only is there a lot of fanart for the actual series, but apparently there is a My Little Pony version of every character from every semi-popular fandom. For some reason there also seems to be a lot of that kind of art on tumblr.

That being said, I agree with you about how immature it is to leave whinny comments about how much you hate vore/My Little Pony/Whatever. I feel the same way about the whole shipping wars thing that a lot of fandoms get into. There's plenty of pairings I dislike, but I'm sure clicking on fanart for a pairing I don't like and leaving obnoxious comments along the lines of, "OMG, how can you like the pairing of Character X/Character Y? It suuucks!" will just make me look immature and won't convince the artist to listen to anything I say about that pairing. Similarly, I doubt you can talk people who make fetish art out of doing it that way.

I think if you see something you don't like, it might be best not to click on it, since clicking on things makes them more popular anyway.
