No it isn’t, only in anti spaces are people like that because most normal people know how to avoid things they don’t like in drawings and also know the difference between a fictional ambiguously young dragon and a real life human being. One of them is a drawing, one of them is real, and most people know and understand this difference.
Disliking something in art doesn’t make you a martyr and give you the freedom to treat it like a serious IRL issue and connect the two things together. People that draw things like Spike in porn have never given me any issues in my life, however many people who harass and condemn others for drawing were people who gave me issues. I dared to look up a ship for another fandom, hoping to find some simple and wholesome fanart of kissing and hand holding and I end up finding a bunch of antis hating on the ship and people who like it and calling them pedos just because the two characters are not the same age. These two fictional characters are not allowed to be drawn romantically because of some internet assholes who like to police what others can draw based on their own personal preferences and they misuse words to sound smart and above them.
You are absolutely free to dislike whatever you want, you are even allowed to viscerally hate it and find it disgusting, but do not compare drawings to IRL or condemn or judge people who draw them simply based on your opinions. Filter it, block people, move on from it, unless someone is directly forcing you to look at it against your will, the options will cleanly solve your issues and hurt no one.
I srsly agree with this statement; I find a lot of people cannot recognise fantasy from “reality” and wrongly have to go the childish extra mile to harass artists or others just for liking a ship or drawing stuff they don’t “like” despite me having a huge discomfort against fictional underage character porn & most fetishes that exist but I never & I do not condemn or promote any harassment/threats of anyone or artists who like that stuff as a Artist myself I still hold mutual respect towards other artists, including artists I do not know or like what they do/draw.
I feel like people are literally taking “fiction/fantasy” stuff as if its “real life” these days and its why I find Platforms such as Twitter such a toxic place nowadays to try and be yourself harmlessly because of how bad it is, most cases it is just upset Minors being minors that condemn/promote harassment towards those artists because they are not educated or can understand what is fiction from reality. Some of those people really badly need a quick reality check, help or need to come off the internet for awhile to cooldown and realise it is not real.
Yeh at least everywhere else besides here the shipping/NSFW of a fictional or not still a child spike is looked at sideways
I’ll also make sure to filter
I heavily advise you to just block/filter the sort of content that makes you feel uncomfortable on here & I am glad you are; you can customise your own filters by clicking “filters” I suggest using “default” template or use R34 template but add the filters of topics/things you do not like, if you need any help I am happy to help you do so.
I hope for the future for you that you begin to settle and understand what is and isn’t real & do not get so hurt/discomforted from it…
I know what it is like to be heavily uncomfortable, triggered or uneasy from certain things, I still sort of do with some subjects but not as bad as I was when I was a teen which was like 10/8 years ago.
