Sexual chat forum
My proposal then is simple: change rule 9 to "Discussion of sexual topics in the Clan Chat is allowed, unless a user asks for it to stop", akin to rule 8.Support - , December 30, 2013 (UTC) Slight Support - I believe that the clan has grown to a state where it is mature (or immature, depending on how you look at it) enough to handle such topics in discussion.Surviving rape, sexual abuse, sexual assault, incest, and molestation may cause different feelings to emerge.During the healing process many survivors of sexual violence undergo a dramatic reality shift, and see life and themselves drastically different than before.My concerns include: reputation (that the discussion of sexual topics can make the Wiki come across as a childish or immature community), extremeness (when such topics go to far, and participants in the discussion are unwilling to stop, or that they have already violated a user's comfort level), and approachability (it's hard to join into a conversation of such topics, for newcomers and for people who feel uncomfortable talking about such things).All in all, I do support the proposition, and I think implementing it is the only way to discover if these potential issues can be resolved.
Everyone seems to be fine with this system, so it seems like a good idea to formalise it. "Standards of Conduct on Usenet" in Cultures of Internet: Virtual Spaces, Real Histories, Living Bodies. and Gail Love, "Electronic Emotion: Socioemotional Content in a Computer-Mediated Communication Network" in Communication Research Vol. I feel that the majority of members would not mind this amendment, as many of them participate in such discussions already.Those who feel uncomfortable need only ask for the banter to stop, and it will.
