I was wondering about this. O-o

I thought about making a topic for it in Finder and Seekers, but I wasn't sure if it would be against the rules or not.

Are you thinking of furry anthropomorphic Anime style drawings?

Yes. Furry/Anthro x Human.

I would suggest that it's not banned under E's rules. I think bestiality (note the spelling) concerns dumb animals who cannot think and have no say about what's done to them. Furries are essentially self-aware fully cognizant intelligent characters RPed like any other non-human character (angel, demon, succubus, tentacled alien and so on), its just the skin covering that is different and that they may be based on earth animals like wolves, unicorns, etc and so in my mind it would be fine to have these.

I consider neko play to fall into this category.

I think even if a full animal is RPed as having intelligence and free will it wouldn't be bestiality, though my understanding is E's rules do not permit pictures showing sex between humans and animals in such games.

The reason for that, is that it's photographic evidence of animal abuse (depending on state, but enough that I don't want to deal with that). No drawings of any sort qualify.

Edit: No drawing of animals is forbidden, I mean.

So you're saying that drawings(not photographs) of Bestiality aren't forbidden? Or is that a Gray Area?

Drawings of any kind are fine, since they are not evidence of a crime.

I'd wait to hear what Veks says on that. Drawings of minors in sexual situations are not allowed on here, so I'd be cautious about putting up drawings of bestiality.

The original question wasn't about bestiality but about furries/anthros - animal-people. Apparently such artwork is okay. Ordinary animals might be a different issue.

I'd say that's pretty clear. O.o

But Wolfy asked a different question to the one Veks answered. Furry/anthro art is not bestiality.

Drawings of bestiality are fine. Underaged characters are not. We've actually been working on a policy of no images of children, period. There are some people from the adult industry here and they tend to get jitters over it.

Good. I've seen some questionable avatars that made me look twice and even then I still feel uneasy. I realize that it's probably my own personal squick factor, but a few of the anime/neko avs with childlike facial features give me the willies.

If you see one please let me know. We've sortof been phasing it in, just keeping quiet about it.

You can let ANY staff know if you see images of children.

No images of children--photographed or drawn, including anime--are allowed on the site.  A clarification of this policy is in the draft stage and will be posted in the near future.
