? I can pull lots of threads where people have talked about what they find attractive, and no one pulled the "questionable content" card with them. Why is this different?

Sorry, it would seem I was over zealous. Only religion and politics are taboo subjects on these forums. Discussion of sex and sexual orientation is OK. Please proceed.

But I would still like an answer to my question ;)

I don't think my grandmother is a big fan of 少年愛漫画, but to each their own, eh? :lol:

She mentioned kissing, that's not exactly erotic content. Things got a whole lot more suggestive with all the schoolgirl-outfit-discussing over in the "favorite fashions" thread a few months back.

I'm not a boy-on-boy fan. I just find it a bit distressing that this particular comment was immediately pounced on and referred to the faq. The grandma litmus test is flawed, anyway. My grandmother was racist (and I'm quite serious, not being cheeky). The things I could say that she'd approve of aren't appropriate here.

When I first came to the site this morning the OP had 9 post most of which were necroposts. One necropost revived a thread 18 months old :shock: . I didn't "pounce" on this thread and I usually stay out of the anime threads anyway but I had a bee in my bonnet about the OP by that stage.

She mentioned boys kissing boys. Still not exactly erotic in my book but in many countries it would be considered such. There are a lot of homophobic people in the world. I am not one of them.

I apologise for any offense I may have caused. :cry:

Well... I'm not really -offended-. After all, I'm not a lesbian or anything. :P I'm just a detractor of double-standards. ^_^

Mr? You using that idiomatically? I always thought you were a girl. :shock:

I think I make a rather unattractive girl

Not sure what made you think I am a girl :? :oops:

I dunno either... probably the name. Despite the Japanese meaning of it, a name ending in ~ra screams girl to me.

I avoid picture threads, since I never post pics of myself, I suppose I don't feel I have the right to gawk at others'. :P

PS: We apparently have some very hot guys around here. :twisted:

Thanks for posting that link. I haven't looked through the archives that much, but it's interesting to see what everyone looks like. Most people didn't look anything like I imagined them.

You missed the 22 month necropost.

Oishi Kuranosuke's son, the youngest of the 47 ronin of Chushingura fame, would have a word to say to you, had he not been condemned to commit seppuku for his part in the raid on Kira's mansion. ;)
