    I'm not looking to start a trainwreck of a thread in our own forum, but I was just wondering what you guys thought about all the controversy over AV's that's taken place lately.

    I missed the original thread where people started bitching, but from what I could gather, some OTer's started complaining about people who had gay AV's with two men kissing. As a result, and in fairness to all, if people can't have AV's with two men kissing then AV's with two women or even a man and a woman kissing is also prohibited.

    As much as I'd like to think that it's great that the mods of OT are promoting equality, it just seems that in the end everyone loses. What do you guys think about all this?

    yes, in the end, everyone loses if the rule continues to stand.

    But, by showing the mods how crazy the rule is, maybe it will get thrown out and I can have my old avatar back... and then everyone wins.

    I told a mod that I have no problem losing my avatar, but that I was going to make sure I wasn't the only one sacrificing.

    Eventually, enough people will be bitching that the mods will have to relook at the rules and determine if they feel that the rules are still appropriate or need to be revised.

    Well, my avatar of the guy with the bare torso came under fire by other Mods. Personally, I think it's ridiculous. There was nothing wrong with the avatar and nothing that you wouldn't see when driving by a house in the summer time and some guy has nothing on but shorts cutting his lawn, or going to the beach.

    As far as I'm concerned, if you see it on a beach (not a nude European beach), then it should be safe for an avatar.

    As far as gay kissing is concerned, while I don't mind seeing it, I don't think it's acceptable in avatars. And if people have a problem with two men kissing in avatars, then they should have a problem with two women kissing as well. There should be no double standards.

    I changed my avatar because I got sick of the fucking witch-hunt that some people are on regarding avatars.

    ...it just seems that the most efficient method of dealing with any alleged av problems would be for those that are bothered to either have the ability to turn off avatars, or stay in work safe mode. But that's just my two cents.

    And they have that ability, but still bitched.

    I feel that if two men or two women are not allowed to be kissing in an av, then a man and a woman shouldn't be allowed either. I'm sure my boss wouldn't want to see that either.

    I told one of the mods the same thing.

    I said to him "I'm going to report hetero kissing avatars because it is not logial to tell OTers that they can't use the word 'faggot' because it is discriminatory, but then only ban those avatars of same-sex kissing"

    He agreed.

    So, that's my latest quest.

    I'll just say, I'm so happy to NOT be a mod anymore

    Mine didn't even have kissing, but close to it so I changed it so I wouldn't get a pm about it. One guy still has an AV with two girls going at it. No one has told him to change his. He's even posted in the sticky called place to bitch about av's. :hs:

    I'm actually a lil worried as well. And I think that sucks, because people know me by my font tags and my av...neither of which has ever changed on OT. :hs:

    I could always phososhop shirts on them for you.

    I figure a av of a big cock will work for mine.

    ...if I'm made to change it, I'll probably take you up on the photoshop thing (maybe some rainbow apparel ;) ), and your new av makes me giggle.

    Well, if you want to use it, here you go. Let me see if I can change the black tank to have a rainbow cross. ;)

    Scratch that idea. You dont see enough of it to make out what it is.

    FWIW, I got the images for the chop from 10percent.com and the guy laying down got his tank from Kleptomaniac. Its a catcher tank. :mamoru:

    I really feel bad for these people. I mean, they're subjected to such bad things! They have no control over it :(


    Oh but they do have control over what they see, especially on the internet. But they'd rather bitch and whine because that's what people like to do.

    It all boils down to people can't handle seeing 2 guys kiss. They (OT narcs) never would have brought this up if there were only girls kissing each other in the avs. I have yet to hear a str8 person express revulsion about lesbians kissing. In fact, they absolutely love that kind of thing.:eek4:
