That's why we have such a discussion here, because certain people can be very agitated like those islamic PAS in Malaysia where I heard you can't even have girls q-ing up with guys in supermarket...?! And you can imagine how your blog will be seen to those PAS controlled state/s.
And if the entire party supporters surf from Malaysiakini (another wordpress site) and flag you, you die.
Basically speaking, on stories which are erotical... we have many dvds on sales or movies in cinemas which could be way more erotica. Imagine your story to real boobs and underwear and kissing in the cheerleader movies (can't recall the titles) <u>meant for teens</u>! Even Princess Diaries series have 'erotic' parts, with Hathaway almost naked or you know... in some scenes. And for children, they go to watch X-men, they have all the gores going on, with blood and such. That includes the infamous and education 'Brave hearts'. I am sure kids will be brought to cinemas or be watching DVDs as Orlando Blooms touched the princess in erotic moments in the Trojan movie, and 300 is obviously with gore and erotic.
The game Fallout 2, especially, and now having a WordPress Fallout blog is full of sexually mature materials. Do we banish Fallout blog for such association that could promote Fallout series, esp 2. All the game series have gores~!
We should let Mark and his team decide on this because, after all, our blogging is personal while the current exposure to other media is public. It is somehow an issue we have to decide on whether those public media where such erotics and gores are acceptable and actually exposed to even teens, but blogs' contents which are actually personal are unacceptable.
I am sure many have gone to the beaches or even to Spain, or swimming pools. There is this picture (CGP) of mine blog with a Crystal Liu in sexy dressing. Do you think that is 'mature'? Now compare to you bringing your kids to see aunties walking about in G-strings, or tanning at beaches.
For me, stars with sexy or naked display online or offline is normal sight. That's pretty 'normal' in the industry, to be honest. But to many, that's 'mature'. But I am sure many kids watched resident evil before... When Alice first recovered from her drug, she was naked, and you can see her breasts. Actually you can see her naked in almost every Resident evil series. And that is what kids are watching. That's 'not' hardcore.
Given as such... I am really wondering how fair it is to rate blogs which are not really hardcore, but maybe creatively writing erotic stories or, you know, using 'fuck' and such in harmless manner to be rated mature. WordPress is not a children's site nor a nursery site. So while we are being fair to the underage, we are perhaps penalising the adults for their maturity... and we may be even promoting immaturity as a result.
But adults should be mature. That's just nature.
So what do you guys and gals think?
