I would say things like gore, nudity, sexuality, foul language and all things controversial or not for kids. It’s pretty simple with me though everyone has a different opinion according to standards and culture.
Well, what I usually do is take a mythical beast and turn it on its head. Like, you take a minotaur, but instead of making them this big insane brute. Play up that the minotaur lived in a puzzle. Make them this brainiac with puzzle themed to them.
Shekets:I think it isn't necessarily a good thing to judge relationships based solely on love.
Some relationships come from mutual understandings, or similar values and similar interests instead of just love.
Sexual chemistry is pretty important in a lot of relationships when it comes to expectations and desires from a relationship.
On the topic of people mentioning creep factors and money:
I'm pretty sure that rich older men who date younger women are aware that the woman likes his money.
If we're talking about a sugar daddy relationship dynamic, sugar daddies are very, very aware of the power that their money brings and often really like spoiling their sugar babies.
If you've ever looked into sugar daddy/mama dating, a big proponent of it is the generosity of the rich partner. Some of those relationships aren't sexual.
There's also daddy dom and little girl /mommy dom and little boy relationship dynamics. If it's simply a kink, then I don't see a problem if it's between consenting adults. Some people really like that stuff.
Some people like different power dynamics than equality in their relationships.
Edit: forgot to mention DILFS and MILFS
When I say "love", Shekets, I mean the whole package. Emotion, chemistry, you name it, it's all good ha ha.
I have to agree with Deo that the stages of your life and wants play a huge role in love. From my own experience, my mind was into meeting someone when I was school and deep down, neither were my peers. Relationships were more for fun that serious.
I think if you're not even old enough to have a job, drink or drive, you have no business in a relationship with anyone or being sexually active with anyone including people your own age. And 18 is too young to be in a serious relationship. Yes, I know some people who are the exception, but 90%, you've still a kid at heart. Relationships are for consenting adults period.
Now, as for the topic at hand... I think most of the time, people who date people who are old enough to be their parent or grandparent usually are gold diggers. Very, very rarely is the relationship genuine. I hate stereotyping and I try to be positive, but this is just common sense. Unless you are a blue moon case, it is very unlikely that the relationship is genuine because what are you going to do with someone who has already done it all other than go on dates, make out and spend their money? The point of a lifetime commitment is actually spending your lives together. And sadly, you just can't with such an age difference. One person (usually) has already had kids, lived, worked and seen a lot and has tons of life experience while the other party is just starting.
Like I said, I have seen blue moon cases in which the people really were in love and it obvious their love was beautiful and genuine. For that reason, I see for myself before judging, but I will deny what I have seen most of the time. However, in either scenario, it's only really bad when one party is pretty much a kid. At this point, you're taking advantage of them and that's shameful no matter how mature they look physically. That's not cool and that specific case is disgusting and needs to be stopped. In all other cases, these people are adults and should know what they're getting into. If they don't, they have themselves to blame together.
I am not into nudity and I hate pixelation too. It just... bugs me. Either show it or don’t. The sight of it is just ugly and amateurish. Make up your mind on what you are willing to show and run with it, lol.
I think it is culture and upbringing, Bear. I mean, why is it that some people from the same culture act differently for so many things? Culture can make you see things in a certain light, but your parents make you see it that way first and last as well as how to act about it. It is one thing to be shy and it is another thing to make immature or crude comments. I don’t think you can pin not being to stop talking about the size of someone’s privates or what you would like to do with them on culture especially on an artistic nude because minding your manners is universal.
I will not specify details, but some of the things commenters were saying about that Hellboy pic contained a lot of smut and were not called for. Just to give an idea, the lack of class and respect would sicken you. Like I said, culture can affect shyness, but not a lack of basic manners.
I guess there never will be a simple answer for that. Art can be many things without the artist even meaning it to be including a weapon because of how people interpret it. The instant even something seemingly tame online, it may spark controversy. I will be the first to admit that. All you can really do is pick your battles as carefully as you can and know when to speak softly if at all.
I think when it comes to art, it is like beauty. It is always and comes down to being subjective regardless of trends, numbers or popularity including when it comes to nudity. Technically, you can have nudity anywhere as the body is a natural thing, but also, nudity will also always attract attention. Now, I don’t deny that some things are not supposed to be sexy period, but since online creeps do exist, you need to be careful or at least be extremely tolerant. And above all else, make sure that you are truly prepared for what may come.
If you are, I commend you for mastering this art. It certainly isn’t one I ever could because I am just too shy.
Lots of things happen in real life, but that does not happen as often as anime portrays it. The extent they do it is an example of just trying to throw in cheap fanservice. That's not cool and it actually ruins the show.
I think there were plenty of moments in the Simpsons where it was not necessary even though it was obviously for comic relief and not sexual. Sometimes, it was funny, but other times, it was just in poor taste and offensive with obvious hate towards something which wasn't cool.
