Comment on Feminists Demand “Sexist” Makoto Aida Guro Art Ban by Anonymous:

@ 12:52

Nonsense.

Your argument hinges on the idea that somehow, people going to a public exhibition ought to be protected from seeing anything they might not want to see.

In a free society, you do not have such a right.

You either have to argue that suppressing things is good – in which case you had best be prepared for when something you like becomes offensive to another person, because what you like very well may be next to be banned – OR, you have to allow for people to say and display things you might find objectionable, regardless of what the majority may think, in order to allow for freedom of expression for all.

If you cannot get behind this concept, then you are not for freedom, and the terrorists win.

Moreover, making art safe and tolerable is the quickest way to make it irrelevant. You sneer at the ideas you think “degrade” art, but it is actually you who degrades art by attempting to tame it and make it conform to your personal ideals.

    Ya, wtf, where’s Cowboy Bebop?! Only about half of this list makes any sense to me.

  • Top 20 Most Edifying Anime:
    Totally agree with some of the list, totally disagree with others. Shingeki no Kyojin?? wtf, good series but doesn’t fit the description of the list. Paprika? It just felt like a watered down, regurgitated, heavy-handed version of Kon’s earlier work. If you want to see something really intellectually stimulating or “edifying” watch Perfect Blue. That should’ve made the list well before Paprika.
