I don't see anything wrong with those images, however the second one may be a little suggestive.. But anyway, it's not like there's not always half naked pictures of Lara? Why is it any different if it's a guy? I'm really interested in why you find it inappropriate.

First one is a bit creepy, he couldn't be any more naked without being naked, ugh! But i don't think it deserves the mature chat. Your right about the second one though. The third one is absolutely fine, it isn't explicit in the slightest.

My expectations were high as well, but they dropped consistently over the time I was there. The one good aspect about it is that it sometimes feels like a smaller community within the vast community that is TRF, and that makes it feel quieter, more relaxed. The downside is that it can be way too relaxed. It's basically one big open chat, really.

I guess I just didn't fit in very well over there, but everyone should judge for themselves of course.

Unless your one of those people that think gay people kissing is the same thing as homo eroticism and therefor should be classified as softcore porn, in which case, don't be so silly!

23-08-10, 16:16
Hey daventry, nice to see you back :wve:

As far as I remember, you should be 13 at least in order to post on TRF, this picture showcases a kiss, and I honestly do not think that people of that age have never seen a kiss before, until then, I do not think a gay kiss should make a difference, especially that it is, in this case, only a cartoon. Do you need to be 18 years old so as to view a "cartoonized" kiss ?

However, as Apathetic stated, the second picture of your first post may be suggestive indeed. ;)

You cant convince people with stuff like this, its unfortunate but true, the chances of daventry saying "Oh i guess your right, homosexuality is fine" is zilch, the only thing that will happen is everyone getting into a tizzy and then the thread getting locked for being completely off topic.

It's happened so many times on this forum already.

23-08-10, 16:32
You do know this isn't going anywhere don't you?

This already way too off-topic.

Now he doesn't like gays/lesbians. It's his opinion and there is nothing you can do about it. What he was asking (put those pictures in MCG) isn't going to happen anyway. So just stop taunting him it's useless.

Now daventry they are just going to keep posting "what the hell is wrong with being gay?" if you keep posting that you don't like. So stop taunting them aswell.

There is no way this to end this discussion unless everyone just stops it at once, because everone thinks his/her opinion is the right one.

If you don't like homosexuality, fine, but you don't need to show your apparent and immoral homophobia. :rolleyes: As long as you are acceptant of other's differences then you should be fine, no need to start going out of line and disrespecting people. (Daventry)

Enough with the argument and the name-calling. The moderators make the decision about what goes in MGC, and we do not discriminate. That should be the important thing :) If a member makes a comment, even if it's offensive, jumping all over that person and attacking him will not solve anything. Keep in mind that this forum has members from all over the world and you don't know what culture they've grown up in, whether they have a mental or developmental disability, or whatever else that may have shaped their views. If a person isn't directly attacking you, then don't attack them.

Okay, fair enough, but when I'm bisexual myself, and someone comes along and says it's completely wrong and shouldn't be seen in public etc- then I take that as an attack.

There are different ways to express your opinions. Mini modding is probably the most irritating of them all. You can't really blame people for reacting to that (although, obviously, the best thing would be to just ignore it altogether).

And could you quite possibly elaborate on this theory in a mature and logical manner?It's quite simple really. All someone has to do is merely imply that they're not accepting of homosexuality. It doesn't matter how politely they express their opinion. Whether or not they stick around is pretty irrelevant most of the time. What follows the original comment will be pages upon pages of flaming (as you've already seen).

That's pretty much how I feel. If someone wants to not be flamed for saying offensive stuff on the basis that they have a cognitive or developmental disability, they have to disclose to people that they have one. Obviously not flaming someone is polite, but really, you have to tell people about your disability if you want special treatment on the internetz.

Though, from experience, even that doesn't always work. :p

Dont see why it isnt realistic though to be fair?
You cant know for sure what someone has or hasnt got :p

Well that's exactly why.

It's quite simple really. All someone has to do is merely imply that they're not accepting of homosexuality. It doesn't matter how politely they express their opinion. Whether or not they stick around is pretty irrelevant most of the time. What follows the original comment will be pages upon pages of flaming (as you've already seen).

You're wrong. I've seen many cases on this forum in which people would express their feelings towards homosexuality, particularly not being for it, but they did it in respectable manner. And besides that's really not relevant in this situation.

Wow this thread itself is the no.1 reason why this forum is becoming a sinking ship. People being attacked for what the believe in, or what they like. Yeah, real mature.

Yeah, and this thread isn't even about what's being fought over! :p

What is the point really, the place is just like GC at times and just as guarded. I don't even both posting in there much.

yes, but you get to say ****, *****, ****, ****, *******, mother ****er, and a plethera of sexual stuff.:cln:

EDIT: i clicked on a random link that Daventry posted, and it seemed a bit naughty for me being at school.......

I think people are overeacting about what Daventry said, many others in this world think the same, punishing Daventry wont change his opinion.

People disrespect religion on this forum a lot and say things like 'religious people are the worst', 'religion is the reason why the worlds gone to pot', 'religion is a pack of lies', and this is offensive, but no one bats an eyelid? Someone saying that anything gay is innapropriate is no different - its an opinion, you cant punish this. It wasnt a direct insult, either.

Its like giving a member a warning because they said they dont like Lara Croft, saying shes just a sex icon or someone saying that lara croft is innapropriate. It may offend a lot of members here, but things like these dont warrant a warning.

let me get this straight...

there is a mature adults section but you are not allowed to posts that are obscene, vulgar or sexually-oriented. What do you do in the mature section... talk about over 18's car insurance? or is the general **** and **** not censored?

I wasn't referring to that, I was referring to when you said, "Come on, you can't punish people for their opinions."

Your opinion is biased because evidently you are somewhat homophobic, so therefore you back up Daventry's uncalled-for post by saying "You can't punish people for their opinions.", which would be understandable if it wasn't applied to this particular situation, but however it is which kind of makes you seem dumb for agreeing with him.

True. It's probably because the TRF crowd is mostly very young, and firmly expressing your sexual identity is a big deal for most teenagers. So, they're bound to take particular offense by that.

Insulting someone's sexuality is a very personal insult, telling them they are wrong as a person for what they are, i can't blame people from getting wound up from what daventry said.

He insults them, they insult him, they are not in the wrong for doing that.

Talking about Maturity, we see Allot of Screens on Nude Lara Models or Close to Nude as you can get, theres even a Completly Nude Ezio Model with his Dingaling by Carbint. :o:o:o
