Oh yeah, creepy isn't a bad thing or wrong. Doing somthing like forcing it on others is just being a jerk, but this conversation was started with a question about this actual topic so this is a perfectly appropriate place to talk about it. I'm just saying BRN is seeming to say it's creepy and inappropriate to talk about period in this thread or in general.
Yeah, I'm all for conversations where we point out things absurd, for the lulz if nothing else
I was pointing out a general trend in opinions I have seen on the interwebs that are spoken very adamantly by the few who apparently don't afford the same during panels at cons.
I went to this one panel at RF on cub porn and obscenity laws hoping for a fight, or at least some good heated debates.
To my surprise, everyone agreed art should fall under the constitutional right of freedom of
Ok the sassy part might have been unneeded and I know I'm just assuming that what BRN meant I might have jumped the gun but idk
Again, I was referring to a general mentality I have seen, but words such as "allow" imply the threat of persecution, or at the very least, ostracization. Phrases such as "should we defend" also imply the us-or-them mentality seen in a group when mob thinking prevails. Most people tend to form opinions based on the others around them for some reason, and not by objective rational thought, resulting in this decline in self-perception and thought.
Social selection is an evolutionary force that helps societies and populations evolve.
This could serve as an example of such pressure:
