Group Info

Welcome to True Amazons! The group for art depicting women as strong, tough, dominant, or courageous... but tastefully.

Basically, the point of the group is this: Empower Women. You don't have to be a woman to join, but you do have to respect the way women feel when they view your art. We want pictures of role models for women, not soft porn for men. There are tons of other groups on DeviantArt that are full of naked, huge-breasted bimbos... but that's not what this group is about. Girls, this is YOUR turf. Guys, you are welcome to stay, as long as you behave yourselves. :)


THE RULES - Please read before submitting art:

• All art must be ON-TOPIC, meaning that their main focus is a woman, and this woman must be powerful or inspiring (see below for more details). Just because there is a woman in the picture does not automatically mean it's on-topic.

• All characters must have REALISTIC body proportions and anatomies, and realistic body poses. Cartoons are allowed, but "Escher girls" and erotic monstrosities are not.

• Keep it CLEAN. We don't want people coming here just to ogle at boobies. Please, no porn, lewd pin-up, gratuitous thong-shots, erotica, women fighting each other naked, or artwork specifically fetishizing sexual body parts. Any nudity must have a non-erotic justification.

• ABSOLUTELY NO art or comments that are degrading to women, anything that portrays women as weak or helpless, violence against women, women as prisoners or slaves, women in bondage, women being abused, impending rape scenes, "peril" art, Gorean art, or art that portrays women as victims.

• All submissions must show reasonable artistic and presentation QUALITY. No unfinished or poorly-presented art, faint sketches, quick doodles, blurry photos, drawings on lined paper, rough pencil sketches, or very novice artwork. Colored art is preferred; uncolored art should be well-shaded or otherwise obviously complete.

• Watch out for REDUNDANCY. Please only submit one version of each piece, ideally the most complete version. Also please try to avoid submitting sequence series.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

UPDATE: What *IS* On-Topic?
Art submissions MUST fall into one of more of the following categories. If it does not, then it is not on-topic and we will not accept it!

* Fan art or cosplay of known strong female characters from popular culture, mythology, or history

* Warrior women, women who are holding weapons, wearing armor, or kicking butt

* Women who demonstrate remarkable physical strength, athleticism, or a muscular body

* Women who possess (preferably demonstrate) formidable magical powers, i.e. witches and sorceresses

* Women who display dominance or authoritative power

* Deviant ID's of female group members; or if you are a guy, photos of women who you know in real-life who you look up to (submitted with their permission, of course!)

* Women displaying other qualities of strength or toughness not listed here; i.e. mastering the elements, flying a jet, saving someone's life, befriending dangerous animals, making an important political statement, etc.

Today, the Kurdish city of Kobani, located in Syria near the Turkish border, is the site of a major battle between Syrian Kurds and the so-called Islamic State, ISIS.  But did you know that many of the soldiers fighting against ISIS in Kobani are women?

If you just look at the numbers, there is no reason why Kobani should still be standing.  There is no reason why it should have still been standing two weeks ago.  The Kurdish forces are woefully outnumbered and outgunned by ISIS militants.  One of the main reasons why they have not yet fallen is the women fighting.

The misogynistic and otherwise bat*** crazy ISIS militants may recruit women to fight on their side, but they reel at the idea of being killed by women.

www.alternet.org/world/isiss-n…

"I personally met IS fighters face-to-face. Women fighters infringe on their psyche. They believe they won’t go to paradise if they are killed by women. That is why they flee when they see women. I saw that personally at the Celaga front. We monitor their radio calls. When they hear a woman's voice on the air, they become hysterical.”

This article talks a little more about it, although the wording of the headline is ridiculous:

Just a fun bonus:  This New Yorker article about the Greek Amazons.  Was the myth based on truth?  This one historian thinks so.  www.newyorker.com/books/joshua…

I succesfully joined the group, - but for some reason I can't submit work. :( There are no "+ Contribute to this Gallery" buttons anywhere. What could be the problem?

I madly love the idea of this group and would feel wonderful to contribute to it, so... Yeah.

Lycanamu ~ Thank you for joining True-Amazons!  The only gallery folder to which members can upload their art is the one called "Sorting Folder."  Then we sort it out for you.  :)

That's very strange. Are you absolutely sure? It should be in the top-right of the page if you click on the Gallery. I don't doubt you but sometimes you can miss things and sometimes DA can glitch out; perhaps since you've just joined it hasn't processed yet or something, though that sounds unlikely :\ . 

I don't know what could cause that since you're now a member. However, if you want you could tell us which pieces of your gallery you'd like to submit to us and we can request them. Just let us know :) . We'll try to help any way we can.
