One question tiger et al, forget the resistance to the gay section on here, just answer me this!

Do you think it correct that the scribes to the gay section shout tout for sex the way they have done?

There are very few posts of that nature. I think they're inappropriate, and (if reported to the moderators by those who find them offensive) should be edited out.  But the problem isn't confined to the Gay section, there have been swinger and other "let's meet" posts in other sections.

Admission that its inappropriate is a good start. Little baby steps till we all get there.

In other words perhaps the Gay section would have been tolerated that tiny bit more! if it wasn't for the Gay Prostitute seeking a "good time" in the dunes etc.  Thats what has riled everyone up.  And to suggest that the members who are meeting up also on the island, and suggesting that they should be brought to task is absolutley nonsense - as you well know.  Its harmless banter/fun call it what you wish and nothing else.

Now before you ask me if I have reported it to admin - yes I did.  Did I get a reply or a result, no I didn't.

Hence our own crusade to rid the (at least within the section concerned) the sleaze and sexual offerings that our youngsters can view on here.  As been said many times before, its a holiday isle forum and thats the way it should stay.

I for one, will report all  sexual advertisment/sleaze, to the best of my ability, banter excluded of course.

Now what camp are you in now?

Easy, I said it was inappropriate, I didn't say I found it offensive.  If you're offended by stuff like that, perhaps playing on public forums isn't a good idea for you!  Moderators generally have a fairly good idea of where to draw the line, if they haven't reacted to your complaint it's because they don't agree with you.

Even admin had an idea there would be a problem - look at their text at the top of this thread

They have now at least given a bit of instruction pinned to the top

They state "Over the years" , Its only been on here 2 years ! and been a pain to the existing users ever since .

Still think it should be removed, from what is a family orientated holiday site.

There is (I guess) hundreds of sites that will cater for the Gay community, why on earth do we have one on here.  Gays can still look in like everyone else to see whats happening with the weather/news and even the Dross section.    Why the need for this is beyond me and I will never agree otherwise.

Tough poo poo to those I upset or doesn't agree with my feelings, its the way I was brought up - old fashioned virtues.  Man like women/women like men and all that.

Its a bl00dy holiday forum/site for gods sake!

Ah the good old days. I was brought up with old fashioned virtues too:

The Death Penalty.
'Spare the rod , spoil the child' - child bashing
Sexism
A woman's place is in the home - wife rape, wife bashing.
Overt racism - Pakie bashing.
Imprisonment of homosexuals - Poof bashing.
Smoking in confined public places - cinemas, aeroplanes etc.
The glorification of war.
etc. etc

Time to reappraise and move on though.

Totally agree with you, never agreed to all the either funnily enough!

The main point is there shouldn't even BE a gay section. The pick up and sex messages whatever are a side issue.

As already said promoting just one particular sex orientation is devisive and by its very presence discriminates against all others that are not deemed worthy of inclusion. Lets have em all why don't we, bisexuals, sado masochists, paedophiles, swingers, necrophiliacs, theres a whole host of them. Why only gay.?. Because as we all know its trendy and 'in fashion' to be gay friendly these days. Unfortunately admin fell for it.

I'm straight and I have gay and bisexual friends. (perhaps more than I realise).
If this site helps incoming gays find bars and hotels that are gay-friendly where's the harm?

What confuses me are the many references to paedophilia from homophobes. Why continually make that ridiculous connection?

Why so much hostility?

Why go on about 'families'? Where do you think gays come from?

No hostility, justwhat i beleive is common sense.

I think we all know a gay person somewhere along the line. As for myself i have a female relative who is gay. and i love her dearly.

Despite that i don't think, and i'm sure she wouldn't either, that a forum dedicated to Fuerteventura is an appropriate place to promote her sexuallity.

The reference to paedophiles etc is in recognition of the fact the homosexuality is just one of a large number of different sexual appetites.

Not sure about the 'families ' bit you got me there.

Hope that clarifys it.

There are a few posts stating that they've fruitlessly complained to admin.
This SMF forum keeps track and lists all Moderator Reports.
I've looked through them and failed to find the complaints that have been referred to.

Please use the 'report to moderator' link to highlight problem posts.

Having said that I've just waded through almost ALL the posts in this section and removed two mildly suggestive innuendos from gays and several not-so-mild from anti-gays so the problem may be solved.
