Title: Comment about the rules
Post by: jubeth on September 14, 2006, 06:33:57 pm

I am new so I apologise if this topic has already been discussed. I've just read the rules and fully support the ban on racist, sexist and generally offensive comments, however I feel it would be good if homophobia was mentioned as one of the unacceptable things. Although it could be seen as falling in the generally offensive category, I have seen much homophobia in various forums that I belong to (excluding the lebian/gay/bisexual ones) that I feel it would be good if this board made a stand. Anyway that is just my point of view, thanks.

People who "are" homophobic, aren't they sexists or even rasists?

Homophobia goes into a very different category, it can't be lumped in with sexists or racists. It touches a whole different form of prejudice.


I totally agree with jubeth.

I dont think anybody here is homophobic for it to ever become an issue. ;)

It has been quite a big issue numerous times in the past.
Some people have been known to voice some very nasty opinions on this particular topic. From both points of view.

I think it's a shame that you need to highlight things that shouldn't be done. When common sense should tell people when they are being out of line in certain subject areas in a general discussion that is meant for all.

From past discussions on this topic, a lot of the forum members know to stay away from partaking or starting a thread that could result in unreasonable things being said, and general rude behaviour happening.

People's common sense doesn't always work... Or not the way we like to think of it.

I don't think I've seen any homophobians here, but then I've only been here for some months...

It's mostly the people who are against it due to their religious beliefs, rather than your average homophobe...

It's a shame really... that there are people who just cannot respect others... that's just so sad! It's just not right... why would you be homophobic? it's just sad
