This is an adult centric forum, theoretically Las Vegas based, where we have had open discussions on prostitution, drugs, etc.... Bob's avatar is stupid, but really, who really gives a frick? If he likes it, let him keep it.

Well then they should let everybody keep or bring back their Avatar

What statement was Max trying to make anyways that was so political?

People are f****** silly.

If we are going to regulate out EB's avatar, where does it stop? It goes down a slippery slope as then most anything can be construed as political. I feel strongly that it should stay.



It has gone down a slippery slope for a looooong time. Political correctness run amuck.

Right. We still have at least one person flying a gay flag avatar. How that is not political when other things were is beyond me.

Huh. How is whether someone is or is not gay, political in any way?

Gay politics is pretty significant issue don't you think? You might say that person is not making a political statement, but you can't be sure. How do you know the person flying a Confederate flag is actually making a political or racist statement(maybe they just like the Dukes of Hazzard)?

You're right, you can't be sure. But just saying "I'm gay" is not a political statement, neither is a symbol of that declaration.

People flying a Confederate flag specifically because of Dukes of Hazzard fandom is probably an incredibly small percentage. A Confederate flag in general is a political statement because it is directly representative of a political movement.

The gay flag is a symbol of a political movement. To say it is not is to say some animals are more equal than others. It directly represents a political special interest group.

The gay flag is a symbol of the desire of the gay community to have equal rights, which they currently do not have. The case is currently that some humans feel they are more equal than others. You just proved that. That's not political, that's a fact of life.
