Just FYI, a helpful poster directed me to the blocked&offended party referenced in the last Journal, and wanted to know why his friend had been blocked.
I blocked him because 99% of his gallery consists of bondage art, and I don't want my costume work to be associated with bondage art.
This is a topic I've chewed over often and at length; I don't approve of censorship, I don't think that the BDSM lifestyle is inherently sick or dangerous or degrading, and I've enjoyed my share of adult comics and literature (NOT 50 Shades of Puke, for the record).
But it's not what I do. My entire attraction to superheroines is that they are strong, not victims. Tying them up and using them for sex robs them of their power, and frankly, turns my stomach. I know that many of my customers feel the same way. There's enough baggage attached to dressing like Catwoman; those of us who are attracted to the empowered concept of the character don't wish to be further discomfited by still-more images of her degradation.
Not all cosplayers agree, and that's their prerogative.
Actually I think the guy I blocked has been pretty classy about it all; he refrained from name-calling even though he was angry, and to my knowledge he and I have never actually spoken. I just found that my photos were being added to a collection that was primarily bondage-related, and I prefer not to be associated with it.
It's a marketing decision, not a commentary on the art or the artist.
