I am getting confused on various fronts. One is why do some women want to post nude (or as close as they can come) pictures of themselves on here. Is it just an exhibition thing? Second is: what is actually allowed on here? It used to be that a bare butt, or almost bare butt, would not be okay. Then I guess with all the bikinis basically being a strip of cloth that disappears up the butt crack, and bikinis being okay on here, the pictures of butts with thongs was okay, and then I would see pictures totally nude from the rear (no thong even) and they would stay up. Pictures with any significant amount of the breast showing would get removed, then pictures where the girl holds her fingers over her nipples have been staying up. A question that has been up for two days now has a bare breasted woman in full frontal shot with her nipples and aerolas blacked out. Mods have reported her to admin and her question (and picture) stay up. Is that okay now?
Also wondering what the mods authority in this is. And I am currently posing that quesion with one mod and trying to understand, because the authority they have seems to change.
Actually, I would not care if they opened up the gates and allowed nudes on here. Nudity has never bothered me and if people want to post themselves to the world, let them. The problem I have is that supposedly it is not allowed on here and I am one for following the rules that site owners set. And surely there are enough guys on here showing that they would love to receive nude pictures so that the gals that want to show off their bodies should just PM those guys and give them links to their pictures. Seems that would make all happy.
But I am looking for your thoughts on this. So many women and a few men have seemed bothered by the (almost) nudity, and yet even many women seem quite at ease with it and are answering with encouraging words. So what are your thoughts on these pictures being up on here?
"Explicit – The post contains sexually explicit details (text, images, or videos) that are considered poor quality content. Also, explicit sexual responses to non-sexual Questions are also removed as Explicit. - For example: ALL posts about incest and/or bestiality will be removed as Explicit"
Clear as mud right? Let's look at what additional clarification the mods get: 1) Explicit sexual opinions on non-sexual questions 2) Posts promoting incest or bestiality 3) Links to clips of pornographic scenes/videos 4) Posts that include images in which genitals (both male and female) and female's nipples are visible. Exceptions to this rule would include if it's an art piece such as mainstream movie clips, movie stills, paintings, sculptures, etc. as those would all be allowed.
I'm also really frustrated with the state of things regarding this topic lately but I think it's really good that we can talk about about it and maybe get some more solid or strict rules about nudity on the site since it seems to be spiraling further out of control. But then again I have loooooooots of opinions on the How Do I Look topic in general. Either way I think this is a good question for @GirlsAskGuys to see
The last time I saw a selfie with a nipple partly showing, I was debating if I should remove it or not, but by the time I figured I should, another Super+ mod had already handled it.
Otherwise, if the areola isn't showing, and if genitals and buttholes aren't showing, I don't think I truly have the authority to remove it, even if it's really dancing along the borderline of "explicit" or "adult content".
Technically it's difficult to argue against these images if, for example, this is an accepted advertisment for clothing:
It just doesn't feel right to mark it as "explicit" because the world seems to be okay with it, you know? Pictures of genitals are immediately hidden, though. It's just these "kinda naked but not really because it's still PG-12" stuff that's a difficult thing to moderate.
1) Some women simply don't care about exposing their bodies. Different people view nudity differently. Some people are comfortable with it while others are not. Some women may simply feel that it's not a big deal, but of course there are other women who would never show pics of their bodies naked, especially not online.
2) As far as nudity is concerned, genitals and women's nipples are strictly not allowed. Any post in which genitals or a woman's nipples are visible, is removed. If the nipples are blacked out or covered, then it's fine. Regarding women's butts, if they are wearing underwear, we typically do not remove it however if it's just a bare butt, then it is grounds for removal. I'm not sure what post you're talking about that has a picture of a woman's butt without any underwear or anything on but feel free to message me a link and I can review it. If a post does not get reported or hidden by mods, it has less of a chance of being seen by admins to be taken care of.
Moderators make recommendations to admins about what content to remove. They can hide posts, however, admins review all hidden posts and then make a decision about if the post should be permanently removed or put back on the site.
I don't like seeing people's naked bodies posted on here. There are underaged people and just people in general that don't need to see it. Coming from someone who grew up using the computer, my eyes have been raped by stupid idiots posting their nastiness all over the internet.
I agree. what are the rules for if they can't be followed. My comment gets deleted because I tagged someone who didn't want to be tagged, but I have to look at tits and ass all day long. Now, I generally wouldn't mind, but it bothers me when those tits and ass belong to teens and is being viewed by teens. Porn doesn't belong on an advice site. Keep it classy GAG. We should be teaching these kids that you can still be sexy and classy at the same time. Not, let it all hang out if you want attention. This is why standards are so low today. We should be a part of the solution, not the problem. I also unfollowed the How do I Look category, but still see every single one in my feed. What's the point?
I think it would be really great if the administration could figure out what is and isn't against the rules once and for all. None of the "well it's not usually okay but if you do it while standing on your head at 3:17 pm on a Wednesday that happens to be a blue moon it's allowable". One set of rules that are not up for interpretation would be fabulous.
I had to remove2 questions with pictures like that the other day. I have absolutely no idea why a woman who do that or what she would hope to get from doing that. As comfortable as I am in my own skin I feel there's a time and place for everything. For example, if you go to a nudist beach you should know going into it what you're getting yourself into. However in everyday life I don't think public nudity is acceptable. I would be extremely dissapointed if gag begins allowing these kinds of pictures. There are some really young people on here for petes sake. Also personally (I know you tease me for this) I don't watch or look at pornography. If this site starts to be flooded with such content, I would remove myself from it.
They should really review and renew their guidelines and give stricter rules so there's no confusion and frustration on the side of the users.
Another improvement would be if users get noticed if the things they flagged didn't get removed, so users can see the things that shouldn't be flagged and learn from it. Without that feedback, users keep making the same mistakes over and over and it also gives admins more work to do, because they have to review them.
I got nothing against it. Not like I've never seen a woman naked before. My problem is when it is underage because that is by definition child pornography. You can report these under Explicit or Under Age
I believe in spiritual democracies - these people simply lack love from a higher power (recognition of such love actually) so they want attention instead which is immediate yet temporary and ultimately painful.
