"Welcome to FurAffinity Forums, gentlemen."
... We're talking about people being harassed with insignia of literal contemporary and historic hate and / or supremacist groups, and your response to that is "Yeah, but that's them and either way that doesn't shield you from criticism"?Yes, Its true that their are people who said "Hail Hydra!" while mentioning users whose parents or grandparents who were sent to places like Auschwitz, Sobibor and Treblinka. However, no matter what historical event your parents, grandparents, or ancestors went through, you are neither entitled nor have a birthright to be shielded from any and all criticism.
I want to think carefully when you respond how what you're describing, how a need to use things like Nazi or Confederate iconography in full acknowledgement of it being in reference to people who were attacked, subjugated, and / or killed by those groups, is criticism. Like, think especially carefully on why you chose that word. Because right now, the fact that you're talking about things like "Faith" and "Ethnicity / Orientation" as things being open to criticism is setting off major red flags.
You just advocated expanding the rules to include other groups, coincidentally the "progressive" groups you're deriding. Big Think that when it comes to things like Nazi content your response is "If you don't like it, just don't look at it", but when it comes to things like ANTIFA it's "I would shed no tears if it became ban-worthy". Big bloody think.AKA "Don't draw what offends me or hurts my ass"
Its just a fucking drawing. If you don't like it, press the back button or, if it does indeed violate the rules, report it.
To be clear for one moment, with your above two quotes in mind: Are you explicitly saying that Nazis have a greater right to post Nazi iconography / pro-Nazi content... than minorities have a right to feel safe and included on FA? Again, I invite you to choose your next words with exceptional care.Yeah, feeling "safe " and "valid" are so much more important than one's liberties/s.
Again: This is shit that's been commonplace on various places of the internet since the 1990's. "Don't post Nazi content" is such a stunningly luke-warm take for site administration to take (hell, for any sort of administration to make) it could be dredged from the waters filling the Titanic in 1912.To you, sure. But this isn't about Scammers or pedos. The mods should be impartial above all else.
