Cuz from what I'm reading it's getting pretty fucking appalling and offensive. People are saying some messed up shit and making really dusgusting jokes. I'm really turned off to this site after the way its users acted today tbh :/
Anyone else with me? Or am I just a lone grown up on this site
Also I'm talking about the April fool's prank (obviously)
I have been lucky - I have seen anything too bad - The only thing is I am finding it disconcerting - You might be reading a question/take on something serious and you are trying to work out gender of person, it is amazing how much you take things for granted like the positioning of opinions plus I feel sorry for anyone new, they must think they are in the twilight zone - They might try and join in to answer a few questions only to be wondering is everyone gay. It was funny for a while but I was a bit afraid what you have witnessed would happen - I spotted a question on the side feed and said to myself I will come back to it but I can't find it so I presume it was removed (I won't repeat it in case I give somebaody ideas) but it was one of those ones that crossed the line between being funny and being extremely offensive to a particular group of people who are very vunerable and it would take much to tip them over the edge (there was a small chance it was genuine but my gut says it was 90% ill judged or trolling).
I got tired of this within like 5 minutes so I haven't really been looking at the site much but if people are making rape jokes they can and should still be modded because that still goes against the rules regardless of it being April fools day.
I would say on the whole, it is all in good fun. It has been hilarious for some parts. However, there are definitely some people taking it too far. There are some topics like rape (like the question I saw you linked) that should be left alone. Those shouldn't be joked about it any situation regardless. I also disagree with how some people are going around calling people awful names and such in the name of fun.
There's a line to be crossed between humor and blatantly offensive.
On the bright side, people will go back to normal tomorrow I'm sure and GAG continues like always. The joke has its moments but it also has people who (intentionally or unintentionally) ruin it.
Since you don't like this, I would try to go off GAG for today to avoid the situation until tomorrow when things die down. It will just cause anger and stress otherwise.
Well to be honest with you, I see when you're coming from and kind of agree with you. Hell, I'm a guy, and even I think some of the stuff said was a bit uncalled for. Maybe I'm a bit prudish, but I was surprised at the stuff some of the guys said. Although the girls aren't exempt either. It's nice to have fun and all but let's not be completely uncivil. Anyway, it's just one day. Everyone will forget about it in a few days and it's not like this is going to affect our lives, so I try not to worry about there things :)
I haven't been here long enough to make an opinion about, honestly. I was just confused as heck.
I wouldn't mind if it went to whatever it's supposed to be, though, as it's still a little confusing for me.
Sad people are sad, in response to your distaste of people acting like fools. Unfortunately, this lovely thing called the internet lets anonymity make monsters out of many, and so we get loads of unsavory individuals. I'd be willing to wager, however, that a fair number of them are just acting out because they can.
I don't mind the color joke. While annoying, it's pretty harmless. I just hope they never repeat this fake "elevation" to admin status again. People are identified on here as mods and especially admins for a reason.
Yes, very unnecessary. I am new here, and I found it very strange. If you were a man looking for advice today, you were listed as a woman. That is not good, for a site that is supposed to help people, some people who have serious things addressed.
I agree completely. People have been real jackasses today for no good reason.
ye cuz i'm getting confused n don't know who is really a girl so i can't perv on them :(
Yup it's annoying now... Ok GAG. I get it it's a prank but there is no such thig a fucking 24/7 prank. Jesus christ it's so boring now. Users here are complete douche and goes ballistic and goes hostile when I say its shit. The serious questions gets 0-1 answers.. LMFAO, funny how its the users who usually say they hate the troll and thet themselves are massive trolls today XD
I asked dat question like one hour ago... and I told ya yer being rational...
The site will go back to normal tomorrow. In the meantime, if you see offensive posts that break the rules, you should report them so we will be notified and can take action, if necessary. The post you were referring to that was making a joke about rape is now removed. You can view our posting guidelines here if you are unsure about what to report. http://www.girlsaskguys.com/faq/moderators#147
There was this question earlier on weather people should decie their own gender. I, ofcourse said yes, only to be shocked that only 9% of women said yes. I was like: "It is impossible that women are so close minded! There is NO WAY!" And then I added it up "what I thought were women were actually pink men". I knew about the joke, but I forgot at the moment. Now it makes sense. Yeah, I hate the blue shit, I want my pretty pink letters back. The joke sucks donkey balls!
bruh I don't know what you're talking about, but all i can say is that the whole April fool's thing is all in good fun. the site isn't meant to be taken seriously, and neither are any of the comments so lighten up =]
Yeah I get you, they're having some innocent fun. They prob work hard during the day and want some humor from this site. It's not so bad... But it is getting a little tiring, I agree. Which is why I'm avoiding this site a little bit today
