To the person on my “friends” list who reported my fine art nude image which resulted in being banned temporarily from Facebook, success is the sweetest revenge. Perhaps you were hoping to discourage me from pursuing projects that address taboo subjects such as nudity and sexuality but they had the opposite effect. Your response is a strong reminder that people often experience fear and anger in the face of ignorance. Art can be a conduit of new ideas to open new conversations and to promote more acceptance and compassion for those that are different and other.
To those of you who sent messages of encouragement, thanks for knowing when I needed to hear them!
What are your thoughts on censorship?
