SL is showing a lot of things flying... teleporting...clotheswise...adultstuffwise ...BODYshapewise...kid avs...furries elves..scars or body Cuts... that I personally would never do in RL but I do enjoy to see them in SL as long as others enjoy themselves...it's all adult people they can decide themselves lol so I don't think I need to be made feel bad for this one ;) I also eat too much virtual sugar and drink virtual coffee almost all the time when logged in XP

The problem is at least in the US smoking in advertisements are not allowed. And in print or movies music videos etc the must have a disclaimer. So that some easily influenced does not begin smoking to be cool or glamorous. I could care less,  I am 10 years smoke free and I occasionally have Tarina smoking a joint but there is a furniture I have that has a smoking prop but I do not use it.. To each his or her own. It’s not forbidden as female nips are to me it’s not attractive. In rl or sl…and I am not even going to get started on the body cutting that is trending now on SL.

I believe you are 18+ like hopefully most of us?

  • You decide to buy Cigarettes
  • You decide to light and smoke it
  • You should know better
  • You damage your body

If you jump in your car and buy cigs because of an SL picture and because u think it makes you "glamerous and cool" as an adult, no one can really help you annyways. Its your health. Im a former smoker too btw. Dont put your own responsibility on others and blame them.

 

I'm a 30 year old woman, and all I did was give my own 2 cents. If someone wants to get offended by it, I don't care. With that said, just because you make a decision to do something, does not mean it won't impact someone else. You can still influence someone either negatively or positively by the choices that you make.

Funny how a simple question can create so much chaos. O.o

.. because we are preoccupied about what is visually morally good or bad instead of posting visuals.

A slippery slope that' s already covered by LL moderation it seems, for all the worse or better .. :|

Let' s NOT go down that slope ... please.

Well, I'm sure these posts will get taken down eventually for being off-topic, lol. It was a nice little back-and-forth while it lasted. xD

So did I. And no, I am not "offended"  I Just have an different opinion in this topic.

Just want to make it clear that I am not blaming anyone of anything. There are quite a few teenagers on this game, and they are more easily influenced, that is just a fact. Tarina brought up body cuts, and I have noticed those trending. That is essentially a promotion of self-harm or abuse. But, whatever. At the end of the day, people have the freedom to express themselves how they want, and they will keep doing what they want to do regardless of what others think. :P

Hope you have a good day, as I was not trying to be a jerk! B| I realize I can come off that way at times.

I think it is a legitimate question, and appropriate for this thread since it deals with the images that are posted here. I think it is something that people who post here should seriously consider, not everyone will answer the same way, and that is OK.

ヽ(͡◕ ͜ʖ ͡◕)ノ hello!!! Trying to do a kind of close up.... I made a new shape for my head with a free skin 😮 I don't think look too bad, I don't usually add accessories and always try to keep it simple but a little of extra color can make a big difference. Wish everyone a good day :)

Doge mood during my lunch break. Installed lubuntu on an older PC at work from a USB stick + Cool VL Viewer. I'm amazed this pic came out at all. Cranked the graphic slider to Ultra for this moment, PC has no GPU, just integrated graphics.

I do not smoke IRL. (I'm asthmatic, and if I did smoke I'd probably end up in a hospital bed, therefore I've never even touched a cigarette.) My avatar, however, is a smoker. If I take the occasional photo of him and he happens to be smoking, then I'm capturing a part of who he is in the same way that I might take a candid photo of a RL mate who happened to be smoking at the time.

We should have a care for the chilling effect that words can have on someone's artistic expression. This forum has already lost one person who was castigated for a single image that he posted. His photography was incredible, but the last image that he posted here before he stopped posting altogether featured a handgun. It was a shot worthy of a classic 50s noir movie poster, and it told its story beautifully, but he was roundly taken to task for glorifying violence. I personally miss seeing his images here, but he still posts on Flickr. He just left this thread (and the forum altogether) because of what was said about his creative work.

Apologies for continuining the derail (I fully expect to get slapped on the wrist by one of the people who like to police the occasional discussion point in an image thread) and without posting an image of my own to 'keep my post within the "rules" of the thread' (since I, too, no longer directly post my images here; if people want to know what my avatar looks like on any given day then they can check my Flickr, which is easily searchable) but having experienced almost a year long chilling effect on my own SL photography because of a thread that took place elsewhere on this forum - one that I only actually realised had had a chilling effect on my creative expression relatively recently - I needed to add my voice to this point.

You mean the guy who is also the founder of the SL group Proud Boys, the group profile for which proudly announces that it is "anti-muslim," and that includes links (happily, now dead) to the RL Proud Boys online? The guy who posted an approving pic of a Pegida demonstration in Germany in the GD forum? The one who posted a pic to this thread of a man wondering aloud whether he should exact revenge on "his woman" for looking at another man?

Please note that these things -- and I could mention others -- are all within an SL context. I love ya, Skell, and have a great deal of respect for your opinion. And I take your overall point, and don't disagree. But the photo to which you refer needs to be read in a much broader context. I myself have posted pics here of gun violence. Merely including guns (or cigarettes) in a photo ain't the problem; the issue is the context in which they are likely to be read and signify.

And he wasn't hounded off this forum: people, including myself, expressed discomfort about the image. I recall no personal attacks on him.

If he can't handle a critique of his pics, then maybe he should post them somewhere where only fellow Proud Boys can view them.

(I'm always amused when I remember the good old days, when "special snowflake" was a term of opprobrium hurled at progressives.)
