Anonymous asked: Tumblr TOS/Community Guidelines and the Supreme Court aren't related, ya foo'!
I am aware, anon. I was merely stating in the comment on crablouse’s blog that they had differentiated between real and drawn minors (at any rate, Villager does not seem to have a canonical age from what I can tell, so he may not even be a minor). The implication is that their reasoning for differentiating the two was well-founded and should be considered by Tumblr’s own moderation team in their own enforcement against content “harmful to minors.” Obviously as a private entity it is entitled to enforce its policies however they wish, however going after drawn pornography under the guise of attacking sexual abuse of minors is one of the reasons I stopped using DeviantArt. The idea that real child pornographers “whet their appetite” with this kind of content holds as much water as violent video games causing serial murderers. In that same vein, you could easily argue just how messed up it is that Villager can be depicted gleefully murdering other people with his axe, covered in blood, but you can’t show a picture of him having sex with Wii Fit Trainer? What, the former is okay because its fake but the latter isn’t?
Regardless, I believe I sufficiently clarified my position on that comment for you and anyone else who may have misunderstood, although if you do have any further questions feel free to contact me (I do prefer asks to be non-anonymous as I hate bothering other people’s dashboards with this sort of thing).
Anonymous asked: Is Vita-tan gonna be a dragon?
I haven’t decided yet, but I’m leaning more towards something japanese-themed as the thing sells and gets games in Japan, but doesn’t do particularly well in the west.
Anonymous asked: So are you going to be making a 3DS-tan?
I will if an idea strikes me! One for Vita too. Poor, poor Vita…
Sadly I can’t do much drawing this week (Since E3 on Monday) because I have a sibling who is getting married on Saturday, and preparations and visiting family members have kept me pretty busy.
