I think there's two sides to this. To one side, I think a part of art is about pushing the envelope and exploring difficult topics. Sometimes it is a person exploring their own trauma, too, which deserves consideration. On the other hand, I think its appropriate to criticize any media that seems to promote insidious content, and I believe, particularly those creating media that reaches a large audience, there is absolutely a duty of consideration to the content created.
Like, I think Tapas' rules about hateful content and what not are very fair.
But the complications of these subjects is exactly why there are no hard and fast rules about what can be discussed.
I think it's less about condemning suicide, then just being sure not to glorify it. But exploring it honestly and with sensitivity is fine. I think "serious" can be subjective, because we're only going to want so many stories that are a really deep exploration of death, per say, but while a vampire story might come across as less serious, it could also be a way of broaching deep and difficult subjects from a different angle.
I'm not really sure what this is targeting? Cannibalism? Organ donors? Necrophilia? Just not sure the exact meaning. But one of my favorite shows was NBC Hannibal, so hey! Dead bodies! Also vampire stuff. Undead bodies~
Anything sexual is definitely more regulated in popular media, and sometimes to a ridiculous degree. This is another one where context would be hugely important to me. There are cases where creators include something like rape in a way thats very much "look how edgey and dark I am!". When, where, and how to include sexual violence in media will always be a sensitive subject, and it should be sensitive, but that doesn't mean people can't or shouldn't include or explore the topic.
On the bright side, indie media is much more able to tackle these topics, even if popular media isn't great with them.
Not so much insult, but I'm all for critique of these things. XD
Some. More so with future work. And I just plan to address it as thoughtfully and sensitively as possible. In some ways I don't feel equipped for that, but I think it's worth trying. And I do think its important to be sensitive to those creators (especially young ones!) who miss step with sensitive topics. People learn and grow over time, and we're all going to make mistakes and learn to change. A mob of hate for those that make mistakes is typically not a good or healthy way to create change. (though there might be cases where many people raising their voices loud is necessary for change, particularly in addressing someone in a position of power)
Everyone has the right to explore any topic, but they are not free from critique if they cross lines or promote harm in some way. It is both necessary to push limits and to create from a place of empathy. It is okay to make mistakes, but important to learn from them.
