Anti-Censorship by Haters-Gonna-Hate-Me Anti-Censorship by Haters-Gonna-Hate-Me
Censorship in books is complete bullshit. Why censor works of art when it is the words inside of it that make it art?

For example, the censorship of the word "nigger" in Huck Finn. Seriously? You fucking kidding me? :iconraegplz:

Based off of a pin.

Pffft. It happened to me once in a forum. It seems there was a censor thing. Like when I type, "fuck", when it's posted, it turns into, "****". The same goes for "shit","cock"(even if I wanted to say that I meant male chicken and not dicks), "dick" and so on. xDD

I agree. We're going to be exposed to everything in books eventually, or we already know about it, so why try to hide the "offensive" stuff? -.-

Whyyyy would you censor a book? What if they tried to do that to To Kill A Mockingbird? There'd be barely any words left.

They censored Huck Finn? I read Huck Finn uncensored in my high school AP class and we had a class debate about whether high schools should teach it (most of us said they should). I can't believe we've gone so far just to try and censor everything we deem unpleasant, especially when such unpleasantness is part of history that we need to accept to learn from it.

Sorry, off on a tangent. Anyway, awesome job! I hate censorship.

Haven't commented here in a while, but anyway.

Censorship sucks, it really does. I thought of Huck Finn myself when you mentioned it.

Yeah, the word 'nigger' is offensive, but come on. I'm black myself, and I particularly remember we had to do a report about the controversy in High School. I remember being offended by it, but not minding or caring because 1. It was the author's decision and 2. It's an old book anyway, so who the fuck cares. "Political Corrections" doesn't mean shit if you censor one thing and yet not another. Yes, there are certain rules and laws that must come into practice, but not censoring a book and then deciding to censor it later on is just ludicrous.

What disturbs me the most is that black people can use it to their disposal... But oh! White people! Urnotallowed2dotatCRYMOAR. And I've experienced it too many times to even count. But I guess white people can't go around calling themselves 'crackers' because it's not as so-called 'respectful' as 'nigger'. Basically, the word has become a 'respected word' in the Black Community, but only blacks can say it. Racism has effected us, and really gives the white man a run for his money.

Censorship in shows are pretty bad, too. I remember in a random episode of The Soup that I just happened to stumble on, and they were showing a clip of a singer in a Reward Show. (who just HAPPENED to be black-- of course.) But since the Reward Show required censorship, basically all of what he was singing was blank. It was basically just like muting the T.V. :|

Also, on... ScrewAttack I think? Or it's either Game Trailers, whatever. Anyway, I watch a lot of AVGN. But the website automatically filters out curse words in the comments section (with the traditional '*'), and even words that DON'T NEED to be censored, like gay. It's like, WTF? Gay? REALLY? And then they don't filter the video itself... Yeah. Okay.

I could go on forever, but... Basically, yeah. Double standards, I tell ya...

Is black people calling each other 'nigger' common where you live? Do you live in a mainly black/white/other community? Just curious, since I've never, ever heard it in the UK.

:iconki14:
Ki14 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2011  Student General Artist
Well yes, according to what I can remember. I don't go outside much these days (people are idiots), but in my High School days, it was very common, so I'm betting that it hasn't changed much.

It's sad... *shakes head* It really gives black people a bad name. It's gotten better, but not by much. I live in the bad parts of Cleveland, although our neighborhood's generally quiet, so I can't assume how it is in other places.

I'm curious about the UK. Any bad words that have become 'respected' now?

I just don't hear it here, but then I don't frequent the not-so-nice areas, so maybe it's more common in them...

What do you mean, bad words?

I see, I see... I won't assume, but it may not be common anyway.

Hmm... As in, words that were, in the past, used without a bother, and now can be used.

Oh my god, the censorship of Huck Finn pisses me off to no end. I'm not particularly fond of the word, but SERIOUSLY? Gee, it's not like that book is hundreds of years old or anything. Totally makes sense to change it. Uh-huh.

If they're gonna censor Huck Finn because it's racist and hurtful, why don't they go ahead and censor the Bible, too? Or any other work of literature that has any hint at racism or sexism. I swear, by the time I'm old enough for kids, schools will be assigning Disney tales in English class.

Nah, it's just something I made up. However, the infamous Shitting Dick Nipples is similar. There's feces pouring out of her dick nipples, she's hairy, thunder-thighs, she's got the orgasm face, and she's inhaling the shit stench like she's in a bakery. But then, OMFG CENSOR THE PENISES! There's just a shitty pixelation censor that only covers around the tip of the penises. Gigantic shitting dicks are fine, but a penis is FUCKING DISGUSTING, YOU SICK FUCK!

And then I've seen not-so-extreme cases of pointless censoring in hentai manga and visual novels. It's quite annoying.

This was more of a rhetorical question. As you can see by my own profile, I too report porn on DA. My comment is driven by the thought that we often are unable to clearly draw the line between censorship, freedom and rules. Especially here it seems lately. And I have had some interesting discussions about what does and does-not count as 'Art'.
