One effecting the other doesn't mean they become the other, they're still their own separate things. Originally you and the other anon were trying to impose reality onto the artist, instead of treating his art, the fantasy as just that, a fantasy.>sometimes you like aspects of something but the core idea repulses you from it
It's fine to like only a few aspects of an art, like the background, the color, the theme, the lighting or the character, you won't be a pedo for liking these things, there's no reason to feel bad about it unless what you're liking is specifically the kid getting fucked.>it's not retarted to analyse fantasies and their relationship to reality
I never said it was, I said there's nothing to be confused about and there isn't a need to make simple things complicated, you're free to do that if you want to though. However, if you're being effected by it, you're an unreliable analyst.>Depending on your state of mind>some stuff can fuck up some people
I recommend seeking professional help in that case, not trying to analyze what to the artist is most likely just something they enjoy drawing or a job, because all you're doing is pointing your fingers at them instead of realizing that whatever is effecting you is a problem with you.
