>What is it that you guys even want out of an art community
Honesty, genuinely positive human connections and basic respect for one another.
Not a hugbox but also not a constant hurtbox.
That's the utmost desire of anyone who is still mentally stable in this crazy world.
We could all have fun together, but many desperately want to be the center of attention or use/bully others for materialistic and social gain.
Many want to impose their mental illnesses unto others.
Many demand to be accepted when they themselves don't accept anything that is different.
Many feel threatened by the success, skills or intelligence of others.
Many use their success to become tyrants.
Many feel justified on stomping the weak or those who don't have the correct opinions.
Many try to overtake the social circles to impose their own rules.
And way too many act based on their animalistic desires, public opinions and will do and say anything to feel validated or gain an advantage over others to fuel their ego.
Honest and genuine good people cannot survive or function in such an environment.
You're supposed to graduate and mature from the high school teenager mentality bordering on sociopathic narcissism to become an actual adult but it seems many don't have the intellectual capacity to do that, hence why shit's fucked beyond imagination.
Such people also tend to seek and cling to any social gathering no matter how generally shit the people in it are or how toxic the environment might be.
