Full frontal nudity double standard!

Yeah, if KnKBoodle is any indication, I don't think what you had planned would have had any problems, and in fact would have been relativley tame. Guess you could always do a revision if you really wanted.

I'm gonna go for it.<P>I made a photocopy of the page. Tomorrow I'll take it to school <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/eek.gif"> and work on it.<P>Still don't know if I'm going to put it in the archive or offer it up in the extras page. Oh well.<P>Kit and Kay Boodle remind me of the yuppie couple that used to live near me. It's not a nice memory.<p>[This message has been edited by Shiro (edited 04-08-2001).]

I nearly drew Ama *completely* naked in today's page. Then I thought better of it and put that goofy tube thing over him. <P>It bothers me a little. I was able to draw a woman fully naked in <A HREF="http://ancientmessages.keenspace.com/d/20010403.html" TARGET=_blank>this page.</A><P>Oh well.

Just don't work on it during class or some of that heat I mentioned might start early! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif">

You are right, there is a double standard. American society more easily accepts frontal female nudity than male frontal nudity. Sad, but true. <P>The realities being what they are, I totally respect your decision to avoid potential problems by "fixing" the picture. Having said that, I think you probably could have gotten away with it, given some of the comics I've seen out here on the Web, even here on Keenspace! <P>

I know. I've read Kit n' Kay Boodle. Although "read" probably isn't the word I should use to describe it.<P>Now that I think about it, I kind of wish I'd gone for it. I would have at least gotten some very, erm, interesting e-mail. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif">

Would Ama be <I>happy</I> in your harem? Remember that "Ama is Bi" discussion we had?<P>Also, I fixed the picture. I've got a short paper to write, but if there's any time, I'll put it in the extras page tonight. For now. I'm still not done deciding whether it should stay there or go in the archive.<p>[This message has been edited by Shiro (edited 04-09-2001).]

Ama is M-I-N-E. Unless you want to take our best bishounen into a duel to find out who gets him.<P>~Lesath

As long as your audience remains comparitively small, you guys should be OK doing pretty much what you want. You both are not being deliberately shocking, you are simply telling your stories. Even the strips which are 'in your face' with thier content are not getting much attention outside the community of Web comic fans and cartoonists. <P>

These two need to take it out into the parking lot.<P>As for Ama naked, I just put it up in the extras page. That paper took longer than I thought it would.....

Huh? Where? I don't see it. Does Keenspace take a while to update after your file transfer?<P>Never mind, I see it.<p>[This message has been edited by gordon (edited 04-09-2001).]

chiming in....<P>I've slowly allowed myself to be assimilated by the double standard myself. I realised this when I prepared to run a short series of archive strips from the early 90s, looked at them and went "uhrm."<P>I'm running them, unedited, anyway. What with the quality of the art being as bad as it is, it's not like you actually see anything. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/redface.gif"><P>------------------

I guess Ama can go to your harem, Shiro pointed out to me he may not be comfortable around all my furry muscular men, not to mention the ducks. . .and he would probably attack the Disney's Gargoyles thinking they are Demons. ^o^ Not to mention, I do have a friends Demon character in my harem too . . .<P>------------------
