Reason User Banned (3 months): dismissing concerns of sexism over multiple posts
It’s not that. It’s just people who have issues with their bodies looking to reclaim their sexuality by denying it in others.

Reason User banned (2 Weeks): Dismissive and insensitive commentary regarding sexism and asexual people over a series of posts
Right. But the vast majority of humans are (otherwise we wouldn't be here). So the issue is... do we curtail all display and comment of sexual nature so that the ace feels welcome, or does the ace acknowledge that the rest of humanity is different and allow things to simply be as they are? All these issues stem from the fact that some people think certain things are uncomfortable, or unacceptable, and others think they are fine. I err on the side of making this place as welcoming as possible for all people, but I also think that will inevitably lead to banning and locking all threads such as this, and I'm not sure that's a great idea either, but maybe I am wrong. I still think the solution is more representation and fewer double-standards. A little bit of objectification is okay, I think, if it's applied to both men and women equally. I also think we still need more examples of non-sexualized female characters to balance out the ratio. In any case, this thread is hardly an example of egregious behavior. The creativity with the header alone almost entirely justifies it.
