Dylan Rosser: Facebook block

Originally posted by elisa_rolle at Dylan Rosser: Facebook block
I received this email by Dylan Rosser.

"I am reaching out to my social media contacts to try draw some attention to the fact I have now been blocked/banned from Facebook for 30 days. Only a week after my last 30 day ban ended.The first ban I assume was because there was too much pubic hair. Does the bit of bush warrant 30 days in Facebook jail?
The second pic is a male nude on a rock and NOTHING is shown in this picture. Photoshop was used to take out any offending bits that might have been seen. Again, does this warrant a 30 day ban?


by Dylan Rosser, 2015
If you care about this issue of me (and many other photographers of the male nude) being targeted/bullied then I hope you can maybe do some post about it."
I sadly smiled when I read the ending sentence "if you care about this issue of me"... sadly because with all my recent family trouble, I didn't realize before Dylan was having this issue, and I for sure care about him, he is not only my favorite photographer, he is also a long-time judge for the Rainbow Awards and has always been generous with his work so that I was able to share it on my journal.

Why Dylan is a favorite of mine? cause I consider him top class, never vulgar, even if it's a full frontal, but in any case, he has never shared full frontal, you can see them only with a specific access rights on his website, or if you buy his online magazine.

And in any case the photo for which he was banned the second time isn't pornographic at all. And to prove it I will post is side by side with another similir photo... which is 113 YEARS OLD and that is consider now ART. Actually the 113 years old picture is way more "risky" than that of Dylan.

One wet, freezing night, a beautiful angel and a monstrous demon seek each other’s secret company. Yoshiel and Labal would never be allowed to meet on normal terms, but they’re desperate: they’re both trapped in the human world, and have had a horrific penalty extracted from them by their masters. Only they know what they’ve done to deserve punishment, and only they can appreciate just how ironic and cruel that punishment is. Will they be left to suffer forever in this strange limbo state, or is it a test to see how they may learn from each other? Their forbidden meeting will either prove their undoing – or their release.  Erotica

World Autism Awareness Day / Free Prize Draw

Those with the condition share three main areas of difficulty, which are sometimes called the triad of impairments.

*Those with Autism have difficulty recognising and understanding people’s feelings and managing their own, They may, for example, stand too close to another person, prefer to be alone, behave inappropriately and may not seek comfort from another person. This can make it hard for those with the condition to make friends.

*People with autism have difficulty using and understanding verbal and non-verbal language, such as gestures, facial expressions and tone of voice, as well as jokes and sarcasm. Some might not speak, or have fairly limited speech. They may understand what people say to them but prefer to use alternative forms of communication, such as sign language.

*People with autism have difficulty understanding and predicting other people’s intentions and behaviour, and imagining situations that are outside their own routine. This can mean they carry out a narrow, repetitive range of activities. A lack of social imagination should not be confused with lack of imagination. Many people with autism are very creative.

***and following on from that, I'd like to feature part of a poem by a young adult man with autism, Scott Lentine. For me, it's a vivid and poignant expression of living with the condition.

Acceptance of Autism

Wanting to be free
Wanting to be me
Trying to make people see
And accept the real me

Some people think my voice is too loud
And that my mannerisms strike them as being odd
This perception of me by others keeps me feeling blue
But there are plenty of struggles in life that I must get through

I am determined to show my critics my true personality
Hoping that people move away from their narrow-minded mentalities
I want them to know that I am a bright young man
Who is willing to take on as many challenges in life as I can

I want to make new friends and create a new start
I like to develop new relationships with an open heart
I hope to be accepted for the person that I am
So people can understand a true autistic man.
