Well actually, for their time, Shakespeare wrote about almost every taboo subject. Haha. They were pretty lewd, they were just lucky that those in power liked his brand of lewd. But your point still is relevant.
Because those platforms benefit the echo chambers of the people who control those platforms rather than letting unconventional artists express themselves artistically without censorship.
I drives me crazy businesses think this is a good idea, but looking at Tumblr, while it’s not dead exactly, it killed it’s biggest and most known audience by listening to the very loud voices echoing of just a few.
Jack, you would have had more artistic freedom in America before the early 2000’s
I’m noticing, yeah, just by age I missed a big chance I think. I could still break out, but I’m going to be hit with a lot more hatred than I think ever before.
Overall, totally agree that there just might not be the “safest” way to do anything revolutionary, in light of recent events.
I really want to make comics, stuff everyone will love, but also stuff that talks about my opinions on these topics, and I’m terrified of the push back I’ll get, or the downright hate. I love that I can at least come here and talk. It’s nice to feel less alone.
