How can artists create without fear?

I would be greatly appreciative if a certain artist (who got shamed into taking theirs down) didn’t create cartoon art explicitly linked to a real person. It puts everyone at risk, particularly those who don’t understand the context behind it.

Sir, please call me a girl, madam, ma’am, miss, pal, friend, or woman. I accept your apology. Sorry if I have mistaken your gender by calling you sir.

Okay then, Miss. By the way, I happen to be Male. But you can call me whatever you wish. I look forward to hearing from you again.

By standing up for free speech.

Reviewed by someone who refused to watch the film.

How can someone who refused to watch the film even do such a thing as “review” it?

Unfortunately, things are made much worse, due to hypocrites, like these: https://twitter.com/ZED_B01/status/1282132749424500736
Naturally, I’m the sort to value my own position above others, so I would definitely be more interested in protecting the loli interest than the MAP interest, should those 2 diverge in opposite directions.

So, loli is wrong, but him being attracted to children is okay?

Hypocrisy, yeah, but I think that he’s the sort that supports “cures” but still wants people who like loli to live in shame about it. Again, I feel camaraderie with vampires. The only thing more annoying than those trying to kill us is those trying to “cure” us.

A friend on IRC linked me this.

Patreon’s insane new rules don’t allow artists to draw ANY objectionable content, even on other sites. Even if you only use your Patreon to fund normal artwork, Patreon will try to hunt down your Pixiv / Hentai Foundry profile and force you to delete anything they don’t like. (Archived Tweet)

There’s quite a few alternatives to Patreon nowadays, isn’t there?

Not really. Patreon is the only place with monthly subscriptions, and I don’t know how ko-fi works. We are going to ignore paypal because they cancel people waaaaaaaay too much already

Not really. There’s places like Fanbox and Fantia.

Also, SubscribeStar.

Huh. I spend a lot of time online and have never heard of either of them, and I would be willing to bet that not only are most of my fellow artist-folk unaware of them, but most of their consumers would be too

Fanbox is the “Patreon” of pixiv - basically it’s their own thing.

Fantia is just another Patreonesque like site which mainly caters to the Japanese.

I do know of SubscribeStar, but I’m not familiar with it.
