    I did not make a big deal out of this Jock I made a post and I have sat back and let it be debated I even made the statement that if it is deemed ok then I’m cool with that I will just keep my kids off of here. My culture and yes my religion (which I never brought up) says it is wrong to expose children to breast for recreational purposes. In the USA (where I live) children under 18 are not allowed in topless bars, topless beaches, or topless anything. The rules state no pornography or sexually explicit avatars and I’m sure many of you especially you “foreigners” don’t believe this to be sexually explicit and rightfully so since exposed breast are no big deal in your culture even in public as nut pointed out…It is in mine.

    Here is my point if you told me that avatars of the moon was offensive to your children and I read up on your culture and found out that this statement was true I would no longer use my avatar of the moon. Does that mean I agree with your culture or that I will no longer allow my kids to gaze at the moon? No all that means is that after it was proven to me that the moon was offensive to your children I would not use it anymore and while gazing at the moon would explain to my children how in some cultures they find that offensive and educate them on the hows and why’s.

    Another point if tits are not sexually explicit go on main, beginners or team server and attempt to say the word “tits”. You will find the filter that has been chosen to be used during game play on these servers finds the word offensive I would guess that would mean the picture would also be offensive.

    I have just looked up several definitions of “sexually explicit” and I will admit that breast were never mentioned so BB you are correct by definition that avatar is not against the rules here.

    Have to decide which of the 2 is more offensive to 2nd-server players.
    Mods! or Tits!

    Religion, Art and World politics aside; i feel in a male dominated game like this, you don’t see another “issue” involved. I find the avatar demeaning and very disrespectful to women.

    I agree you didnt make a big deal out of it besides assuming this wasnt allowed, wich to this is point not resolved.If someone asks Kat to change the avatar in the right way he/she might do it and there is no more problem.If not i believe every browser has the ability not to show pictures, after that you only have to avoid zooming in too much on the bad avatar to protect your children.
    Jock was i.m.o. wrong to mention religion, it wasnt about that at all.It is about beliefs tough.
    Under 18s arent allowed in stripcubs or sexshops or coffeeshops(the ones that sell grass) or to drive a car ,drink hard liquor(beer and wine from age 16) , to be depicted naked(unless it has an other function than the obvious).
    Topless beaches(i do believe thats all beaches) are not forbidden for any age group,so are nude beaches.
    In my culture we differenciate between real dangers and percieved dangers-a stripclub is a place where girls or guys are paid to take off their clothes to exite men or women i think we can all agree that this wouldnt be a place for kids.
    A beach is a place where people are allowed to take off their top or in designated places be totally naked, its not sexually orientated but an act of liberation.Not considered dangerous or harmfull for kids.
    Altough i dont feel a need to go to a nude beach im happy that i live in a place where its not forbidden as i dont see anything wrong with it.
    There are even places where people recreate naked(if wheather allows it) and spend their holidays.When i was in sweden once i was quite surprised they recreate naked in city parks- a little shocked but not that bad- the elderly couple were only showing their affection, i doubt over 70 they were trying to get it on right there. 😉
    I doubt that in the US there are no places where people do these things with the same intentions as they do it here-to be free with like minded people, unfortunately they cant be as open about it as we can here.
    Im sure you dont mean to use foreigners to distanciate yourself as there are many americans who do believe something similar.

    I respect your opinion but the “euphemistic” post i find quite offensive- taking things out of context like that has started wars- if thats the kind of aggression you want scorched to learn people i think you are wrong.
    Comparing a pair of breasts with giving children cocain,watching porn as sexeducation and intoxicating them to give them a hangover, please refrain from that or i could not possibly take your views seriously anymore.

    Here is my point if you told me that avatars of the moon was offensive to your children and I read up on your culture and found out that this statement was true I would no longer use my avatar of the moon. Does that mean I agree with your culture or that I will no longer allow my kids to gaze at the moon? No all that means is that after it was proven to me that the moon was offensive to your children I would not use it anymore and while gazing at the moon would explain to my children how in some cultures they find that offensive and educate them on the hows and why’s.

    Thats why i would leave it up to the owner of the avatar to decide if its necessary to keep it, if noone can convince him/her either its a horrible person or we were not very convincing.

    Another point if tits are not sexually explicit go on main, beginners or team server and attempt to say the word “tits”. You will find the filter that has been chosen to be used during game play on these servers finds the word offensive I would guess that would mean the picture would also be offensive.

    I believe you are reaching here, if your logic were correct it would mean we could not depict wanking gay prostitutes watching naked penises penetrating nergro butts.
    But we could have an avatar with fornicating gay prostitutes watching naked penises penetrating nergro butts.Wank being the only offensive word according to the filter.
    Im being pretty anal about this one i admit, but i believe it is in place here

    Religion, Art and World politics aside; i feel in a male dominated game like this, you don’t see another “issue” involved. I find the avatar demeaning and very disrespectful to women.

    Altough females are definately a minority i dont see any male dominance happening here,maybe im missing something.I find this forum relatively reason-dominated tough, but i wont make a fuss about it 😉
    I would love to see more female players in the game altough im skeptical about the chance this happening before i starting to lose interest in the other sex.Nerdy guys playing videogames is just too sophisticated for most females 😈

    Yes obviously you stand by your point and you wont move, but you must admit there is not a consensus between your peers, could you give us some convincing arguments that mute the opposing ones?

    Vitos, I think u should start think about what u r writing and just stop being a wise a** all the time. Pls, cut it.
    Yeah, u r right I don’t want any of my future kids listen to your explanation nor read your sarcsm txt.

    Altoug i think vitos is an ass(its not in the filter) i enjoy his not so wise comments sometimes, it puts some perspective sometimes, like your comments do.Vitos last post was quite funny and it confirms what i believe, we should all relax a bit more.

    Now im going to smoke that avatar of yours Vitos

    Hi ellie mae:

    Perhaps I need to take a better look, if she has a tattoo, that would be disgusting. @ellie mae wrote:

    What I saw at first glance was nothing you wouldn’t see at most any art museum. I noticed your avatar, van Gogh’s – Starry Night and assumed you have an appreciation of art. If you are truely offended by paintings, sculptures or photos of nude women that are not engaged in sexual activity then you should not go into an art museum. As an example I offer you another van Gogh, this one titled Sorrow.

    I find this one depressing, but not digusting. To me, the nudity isn’t sexual at all. Instead, I think it says something about how very little we care about those around us. As far as I can tell, she doesn’t have any tattoos. Then again, I don’t think she is supposed to be a jungle savage or a tramp, just some poor soul down on her luck.

    Nudity isn’t sex. Nudity is only the absence of clothing, nothing more. The Bible indicates that God made the first man and woman naked and left them that way. Apparently God wasn’t offended by our nakedness at all. Considering the fact that we were never told to put on clothing and we are still being born naked, it seems this is one of those cases where man knows more than the God he worships.

    Thats one opinion/argument – another one has recently been put to test in Denmark. Several decades it has been fine to bath topless on the beaches, now it comes to the public pools, at least on certain days.
    The argument goes like this: by allowing topless bathing in public pools it will hopefully make women proud of their body, instead of forcing them to hide certain parts of it. So I can argue that its only a tribute to the female body;)

    I have tried to keep slightly away from this topic, other than the snippets I have made, but there a few points I would like to add to those already made.

    Religion / Personal taste / Beliefs:

    This is an international game, open to every single person in the entire world that has / has access to a computer, thus every single part of this game, the people that play it and the avatars therein will, at some point, upset someone.

    It would be impossible to make ANYTHING that EVERYONE is happy with.
    For example, in many countries, Women are required to cover every part of their body, even their eyes in some places.
    In other locations, all the people wonder around all day without a single stitch of clothing to cover any part of their bodies.

    As for ‘tits’ being filtered in the game, I doubt that breasts is filtered, therefore that point would be null (providing it is not filtered).

    I would go on, but alot of this thread would be better discussed over a pint down the local. So, what is the local pub for everyone discussing this? 🙂

    Ppl, it doesn’t matter how many more pages and extra txt u will write. It is againts the rules of the game/forum to use this kind of avatar. It is not allowed like it wasn’t allowed at same cases at the past (Jock censored him self in one of them 🙂 ).
    The rules hasn’t changed since we started this topic…
    I said all had to say, bazzzzzzz u could see my point not just in my txt but also in DB’s and in ellie’s. What else u need?? What is the reason they say some movies are 14+ or 16+ or 18+?? it the same in here. This place is “for all audience” so this kind of avatars ofcours aren’t allowed. If it would be then this place will no longer be “for all audience” but minimum age limit site amd that wasn’t the goal of this place/the site admin.
