A while ago I brought up the subject of a sex help and education thread
. I assumed that an admin and a mod correcting me to post it in On-Topic Conversations instead of Yack Fest was a symbol of support, so I posted it. I waited for people to post. I edited the first post a few times more than necessary. And then this
happened when I saw that it was no longer on my watchlist, nor within the first ten pages of OTC.
Please give a reason as to why no one bothered to warn me when they deleted a thread I asked permission to create and, to the extent of my knowledge, got permission to create—from both blackcat and Fast Eddie
. It is a thread which I would have diligently worked to preserve as a safe, serious, informative, supportive place for discussion of healthy sexual habits, and in the worst case scenarios, the proper course of action to take after a crisis has occurred. A thread which, despite being given general support, got deleted even while a thread consisting entirely of over-the-top sex jokes has over 10000 pages.
I did not post anything lewd in that topic. I specifically warned future posters to take the thread seriously, and refrain from linking to porn or other NSFW sites. I put up a collection of websites which exemplified the emphasis on serious discussion and education.
The only links I posted which could possibly have been considered not-safe-for-work were links to pages which concerned themselves with informing rape victims what acts were defined as sexual assault and abuse, what to do in the case of sexual assault, and links to counselors and crisis hotlines. But I made them in entirely good faith, because I was sure that assisting rape victims in the recovery process, no matter how indirectly, would be a valid reason to post about uncomfortable and highly triggering subjects.
Again, I ask permission to post a general sex education thread in On-Topic Conversations which is geared towards giving examples of a healthy, realistic, and responsible lifestyle in regards to sex for people who may have received inadequate or outdated information—as well as providing support and information to people recovering from abuse, rape, and other forms of sexual assault.
