[quote:Reece2076:MV84NDI0MzFfMTMwNjM5NDdfNUI0MEZFNzI=] [quote:Evil Twin] It's not an easy line to straddle. We try to allow people to express themselves as freely as possible without getting stigmatized as a "hate" site. We all want the site to appeal to as broad an audience as possible. I was just about to respond to your response to me but then I saw this. What is your opinion of Trinity's pinned thread about political correctness and hate? Because it seems like you also agree with a certain level of being politically correct and using tact; as I'm sure Trinity is since he is the one who makes the rules here about what people can and cannot post. I think that not being "politically correct" does not equate to hate. I think some tact is necessary in civilized society, but it goes too far when people feel like they can't express their disapproval of something. For instance, homosexuality turns my stomach at some levels. I think it's unnatural. But I don't hate gay people. I do hate that it's being pushed on us so hard that being gay is perfectly normal. For the record, I've never gotten any direct instruction from Trinity or anyone else on what to allow and what to not allow, other than no brainers like death threats and DMCA violations. We all use our own discretion and only hear about it if we're fucking up. [/quote] "I think that not being "politically correct" does not equate to hate." I agree. "I think some tact is necessary in civilized society" I agree. "but it goes too far when people feel like they can't express their disapproval of something." That's the part I don't get. I rarely get that feeling. I always say what I want to say. Last time I checked free speech was still constitutional and not against the law. I think some people hold their tongue because they want to be accepted and not looked down upon. That is their choice. Other people would not feel good about themselves if they did not express their true beliefs. These same people care more about how they feel about themselves than what others may think about them. "For instance, homosexuality turns my stomach at some levels. I think it's unnatural. But I don't hate gay people. I do hate that it's being pushed on us so hard that being gay is perfectly normal." I agree that there seems to be an agenda in hollywood to push homosexuality. Probably because many of the producers and others in the industry are gay. Though it's my personal belief being gay is natural since people are born that way. I just can't see why anyone in this society would choose to be gay. At the same time I'm probably a little homophobic since I would prefer that my kids not turn out that way. If they did I would be very very disappointed, but I would still love them because they are my kids. As far as gay people are concerned I could care less what they do in their personal lives. As long as they don't try to push their gayness on me. [/quote]
Let's try for a week to not censor any posts or threads, except for spam advertisement. Let anybody say what they want about race, religion, sex including sexual orientation, religion, even allow the personal attacks that include members names.
According to the poll here
link to www.godlikeproductions.com
] 90% of Glpers are tired of having to be tolerant (politically correct), and told what they can and cannot say. 90% of people think they should never have to use tact, and should just say whatever's on their mind. After a week we'll see whether using tact or hate will be the downfall of the GLP community.
My hypothesis is that this forum will devolve into a place where people take out their personal frustrations on demographic groups in which they don't belong to. The level of intelligent posts and threads will decrease significantly as will the site traffic.
The results will be judged by the increase or decrease in amount of traffic here. You could also measure the results by how many active members stop coming here. Furthermore you can see how many more complaints the mods receive about other members.
