    I think Gamedog is forgetting about one key word here: Bestiality. Drawing anatomically correct animals doesn't automatically put someone in the weirdo animal humping category but they are out there and do draw this stuff. The thing is, nobody sane will admit to such a fetish. On websites where anthropomorphic animals are drawn (yes even what you guys call "feral" art is anthropomorphic especially if it talks and uses human expressions), it would be very difficult to convince someone it wasn't meant for sexual purposes when "human" varieties are showing their junk or are topless and so on.

    Turning a nonsexual image of a dog into a slutty stripper ad doesn't help matters either. That is something not appropriate for children. One of those images linked to dA is in the mature category also, which is similar to the mature category here but I don't see Gamedog throwing a fit about but he is here? I seriously question this guy.

    Gamedog, it comes down to this: by creating a different set of rules for ferals we're creating for ourselves potential loopholes and headaches for why we allow someone to show nipples and dongs on critters with four legs when we don't allow it for bipedal humanoid characters.

    Is there something illegal about showing animal nudity? No there isn't. However, legal reasons aren't the only reasons why we may or may not want to allow or disallow certain content under a certain rating. In the case of what you're talking about, it's not an issue of the nudity being sexual but because given our rules we'd have to start creating separate rules concerning animal nudity which frankly most of us don't want to do for the reason previously mentioned. We feel ruling across the board is the only fair way to go about this.

    That's pretty much the stance of the staff. Unless we're given some compelling reason why we need to allow our users to place images such as you've posted in General or Moderate this is going to be the way the staff will continue moderating the site.
