What Freedom of Speech actually means.In America, "Freedom of Expression" and "Free Speech" refers to a constitutional right to express your opinions without being silenced or prosecuted by the government or police.What Freedom of Speech actually means. by scythemantis
This is a legal protection in place so that the people can criticize the behavior of authority figures on equal grounds.
For some inexplicable reason, many people believe "Free Speech" extends further to civilian interactions. People claim their "freedom" is being violated when a website like Deviantart takes down their work, or when they experience harsh backlash for their opinions and beliefs.
In other words, call someone out on even the most vile, aggressive hate speech and they'll almost invariably fall back on some rant about their "freedom" to "express" themselves.
Unfortunately for the racists, misogynists, transphobes, homophobes and other anthropomorphic sewage, the right to free speech simultaneously means that others have the right to speak against you, and yes, police your words in their own spaces.
Hello and welcome to my profile! |
Hello there! My name is Shalyn, or Shay, and I have a strong passion for animation. I'm a self-taught artist, working hard in the hopes that I may work as a professional classical and 3D animator .
I'm generally a friendly person with a love for life, often living with a positive outlook on life, and enjoy meeting new people. I've been described as being a bundle of energy that my small body can't contain. I'm pretty sure all the coffee I drink doesn't help either lol.
When it comes to drawing, I love to draw horror, fantasy, and science-fiction related creatures and objects, with some examples being monsters, dragons, aliens, and robots lol. However, I'm always up for drawing new things and love receiving critiques, as long as they are polite and constructive .
