I am a member of BlogRush, a network that syndicates blog posts throughout the blogging community. This evening I signed my tumblr blog up to become a part of the network, because I thought it’d be an interesting exercise to see if a largely image based blog would get much of a reaction. Unfortunately, the reaction was not what I had expected – BlogRush put a damper on my plans by rejecting my tumblr blog from the network on the basis of nudity/ pornography!!
I’m guessing the offending article was this series of posts that log the process of painting “Doily Girl” (warning, boobs). I have no idea why tasteful and totally unrealistic nudity is lumped in with pornography, but I’m pissed off.

How is nudity, depicted in a highly unrealistic painting style, illegal or anywhere near as bad as any of the other things listed in that paragraph!? Are there any other artists who object to this? Speak up!
