I find it ironic (and kind of funny), thighs, that you're making noises now about getting me to hush and locking down the thread.

You know, because you are always going on about how no one understands the idea of "freedom of expression" as well as you.

Thanks for listening.

:bow:

hush. by lacking the cognitive ability to use the IGNORE FUNCTION in your brains unpaid mods are given way too much (thankless) busy work round the clock just to keep people from being offended by things they Do Not Have to See. did you write letters to the paint company telling them to put a label on the paint cans warning you not to eat it too?

dimensions as a whole lacks the maturity and sophistication to handle an archive of fetish stories and they should really be removed from the site and moved elsewhere. somewhere they don't have to be defended every fucking week. goddammit shut this thread up.

You as a whole lack the maturity and sophistication to deal when people express their opinions and feelings about something they find offensive and you should really move elsewhere. Somewhere we don't have to see you bitch every fucking week.

I can't blame you for smoking that blunt. You must've been pretty sore from fucking that old man on viagra all night.

I'm not trying to be cheeky here, nor am I trying to defend callous behavior, but...

I often find that people lack the maturity and sophistication to actually express their genuine feelings instead of a knee-jerk, "I feel angry. Therefore this is wrong."

Feelings can't be listened to unless they're felt and understood, but how rare is it that someone is willing to sit in the fire.. :huh:

Well shoot! If it was pornography it would be a perfect place to insert this pithy quote: "In this process of oppression, many feminists point to pornography as the main mechanism that explains the incredible staying power of the male power structure. As Page Mellish of the group Feminists Fighting Pornography declared, 'There's no feminist issue that isn't rooted in the porn problem.' Pornography is seen to be the crucial thread in the tapestry of male oppression -- a thread that, if you pull it loose will cause the tapestry to unravel." ~ Michel Foucault and Pornography by Wendy McElroy

But since it's not, never mind. :rolleyes:

FWIW I consider myself a feminist.
1) It's not porn, it's money and guns*.
2) You're a bloke, you don't have the qualifications to be a feminist.

*i.e. a near monopoly on coercive force (can't find a link but there's some state in India where the women formed local armed militias to protect themselves from rape and violence. Seemed to work fairly well.)

No idea what COF means, but there is a small group of self ascribed non-fetishists who make it their business to troll the WB looking for chances to make fun of posts there. Much of the time followed by the *shock* when they get warned and claim they were only having a little fun.

Once again, this is nothing beyond a turf war and another chance for you to showcase your bullying skills.
Here you go - C.O.F.:

pretty much all of y'all are messed up. instead of discussing the issue this thread has been used pretty much like all of the interesting serious ones to trade attacks and trivial accusations etc... just take someone else's opinion for what it is like a grown up and move on for just once--just for a change. cuz really most people don't give a damn about boring personal motivations . they just want to talk about an issue without the overly sensitive bs on either side.

I'm with you on the first point, not on the second. But that's a common misconception:)

I'd also like to take a moment after reading the comments questioning the appropriateness of pictures of people's kids on this site, given its adult nature. Probably more than anything, Dimensions is a community that has developed and cohesed over a decade of familiarity. Many of us know each other through this site IRL and so that sense of community means even more to us. Telling us that we can't post pictures of our kids to me just is a smack in the face for people who want to share the good things in their life with the people they are about online.

LoveBHM's, are you going to be the one to tell Bexy that she can't post pictures of her daughter who is, after all, the product of a fat pregnancy? What about Megan and others who have had babies since coming here. Should they not be able to share pictures with us because we don't allow pedophilia on the site?
Rhetoric aside. No "beef", nor "face slapping" involved.

From the POV of folks posting their kid's pics here - People: it is very unwise of anyone to post pictures of their kids on any public forum on the internet - and that goes double for any public forum that is 18+. It's not safe, secure nor appropriate.

Facebook exists so that you can share pics of your nearest and dearest in a protected environment where only people you have "let in" can see your pics. That would be a safe and appropriate place to share such pics. If you want to build community safely may I suggest founding a "DIMS family" group or suchlike on Facebook, where membership would be controlled.

From the POV of DIMs it is a risk to this website and it's users in general to host any pictures or any minors whatsoever on an 18+ forum. Neither authorities nor vigilantes are prone to a "nuanced" response where images of minors on websites / your computer are concerned.

Two excellent reasons not to post such pics here. Ever.

And once again ftr I SUPPORT the "no minors in stories" rule too!

Besides, while I do love that this sight blends size acceptance with size sexuality, I find it interesting, and odd, that the library takes up roughly half the Dimensions Forums page. And this is coming from someone who does love the library, btw.
Stan flagged this too - in addition to a "disclaimer" on the relevent subsections Why not have ONE entrance to the library with sub menus ("U" "PG" "Kinky") in a "tree" structure? That would make kinky things less "in your face"... but still there...

Good. Thank you.

Maybe I should start a list of people who agree. That makes quite a few who think that putting up a disclaimer and/or password protecting the Library are workable compromises.
While I'm all for the appropriate anti-fat-hate disclaimer - as I suggested waaaaaay up thread - I think a password will actually be counter productive:

How many people in realtionships give a LOT of headspace to wondering "what is my partner really thinking?" ??? So how many fat folks arriving here are going to wonder the same about FAs? A passworded section might suggest to a newb that the kinky stories represent the "dirty, secret motivation" of FAs and imply that they are kept hidden to lull fat folks into a false sense of security. Having the stories in the open - but discreetly - with an anti-RL-fat-hate disclaimer slapped on them puts them in their proper place, without mystifying/demonizing/glamorizing them with "secrecy".

Yes, I know the password will be available from a mod, but I'm talking about the impression made on someone without history here.

I disagree, Supero. There has been some very interesting discussion within this thread and I feel I've learned a few things about Dimensions I didn't previously know. (I'm not insisting you wade through it all, but I am saying it's not been just your usual clusterfuck.)

how many do you think those posts are out of the 858 percentage wise? i wish we had just as many in the "what have you done for SA besides post in this forum" thread. maybe we need a "i've done nothing for SA besides be overly argumentative and complain" thread.
