    What constitutes "Sexually suggestive" ?

    The new ammendment to the COC states;
    All pornographic, sexually suggestive and sexist material is prohibited. Additionally, do not link to porn or post "Email/PM me for/with porn".

    Without having this turn into a big debate by people offering their opinions,
    Can I get a clear definition of what might be considered "suggestive" or "sexist" from the Mods?

    You really think that by posting this as a thread (rather than PM'ing the administration to clarify their position), this won't turn into a big debate?

    This will be fun to watch for the few hours before the thread is locked.

    Only if people (like yourself ) offer up the thoughts on it.
    I specifically asked for the Mods to answer.
    I didn't PM the administation on purpose. I wanted it clarified publicly so that all may know .

    No, and yes. Sexist is the easier of the two to define as it is simply "discrimination based on gender." A sexist comment would be one that stereotypes another person based on their gender, much like a racist comment stereotypes based on race. Neither are welcome here.

    Sexually suggestive posts, whether it be images, audio, text, etc, is a much more slippery slope, hence your question. We will define it in this way. This is a family friendly board, and the content of this board will remain family friendly. Is that a clear definition? No, it isn't. Nor can I give you one that would satisfy every circumstance and we will not box ourselves in by attempting to create specific rules and then watch those members who like to test the boundaries see what loopholes they can find. The administration will determine on a case by case basis what is and what is not sexually suggestive. Their determination in these matters will not be up for debate. While we will remove sexually suggestive content from the board, only a warning will be issued to the poster, unless they are a repeat offender. I feel that most of you have gotten the idea of what we view as sexually suggestive from the threads we have pulled in the past few weeks. Please do not test us in this area. This board is about costuming and community. If you are interested in sexually suggestive or sexually explicit material, you have virtually the entire rest of the internet at your fingertips. I know this is probably not the answer you were looking for, but this is the stance we are taking as we have noticed a dramatic increase of sexually suggestive material.

    Fair enough.
    can we lock this & maybe make it a sticky for a while?
