Unlike how many detractors are portraying this issue, you don't have to be a Nazi or white supremacist or any other buzzword to see the value in freedom of expression, or to worry about how, even though it's Aryanne today, it can be anything else tommorow. Just take a look at the replies in Sethisto's post earlier, or in Derpibooru's Black Lives Matter announcement.
The people celebrating this will always want more. But it needs to stop here.
After clear evidence of admin complacency, ignoring our pleas for no censorship, and their vocal support for policies that restrict artist freedom, there is only one thing to be done now.
Join me and others in inflicting a Do Not Post order on your artist tag. This will prevent all your future art be uploaded.
Since each DNP request must be looked at manually, the sheer scale of the consequences for the staff's actions will be plainly visible.
If you are not an artist, then simply ceasing uploads of art and reconsidering your Patreon pledge will make our voices heard.
Even if nothing is done, as I suspect will be the case regardless, this will make joining alternative boorus, which are being built, much grander as they will get art not able to be posted on Derpibooru
Please, if you feel strongly about censorship as an issue, if you see the obvious slippery slope that censorship will cause, then join me and many others by requesting a Do Not Post order on your account.
To do this, post here denouncing this censorship and report your own post. Click on Other and say you want to DNP your art tag.

Censorship on this site has hit before.
First it was human characters that made people a bit too uncomfortable, because they can't differentiate fiction, so Admins were complicit then. Censorship never stops, it's just more and more until it's sanitized to the ones in control's way. Ironically, just like the Nazis who didn't much like cartoons depicting their leader in a way they disproved of.
Gelbooru an image site was harassed into capitulation, by censorious types and the owner fought back calling out the hypocrisy of the provider and calling the bluff of it being "Just one image" they'll still up, so there isn't much excuse to blame the provider.
The people celebrating, I see no different then the religious wing-nuts that said Pokemon and D&D lead to Satan, the people that originally attack the fandom as "Stealing" it, the Jack Thompsons saying video games are the problem in the worse and MUST
be change to fit their sensibilities.
Many were against censorship in the past because it was something they cared about, but when isn't show their hypocrisy of being the same as the conservitives that wanted anything from Rock music to games bared, band or censored. They turn coat and demand it banned for the Greater good.
When something they love comes under fire and they'll wonder why no one will lift a finger to help them.
You reap what you sow, don't advocate for something if you don't want it to happen to you.
