I will not reply to obvious nonsense such as that i support RL slavery, or am against equal rights on earth... just show me where i said that. To slavery & war, death & torture, hardheartedness and evil: If you don´t like the darker sides of history, you can of course edit them out of your mind, doesn´t change a thing though and will not necessarily make others censor their minds. If you are not capable to accept a story´s setting without getting all confused that it may threaten your real life society´s values, fine, enough people about who cannot, nothing special, even politics live of that reservoir of pseudodispute. what that has to do with what i said, solely about Gor, remains a mystery until you educate Us all .
My post was not directed at anyone in special, but to this here i will answer: "I agree with you. What Nephtides did was to take things out of fantasy and bring them into reality. That is an absolute no go. Some gorean role players do that - and that is one reason why gor has such a bad reputation." - Explain how I bring things into reality from fantasy, please.. I will immediately bring a few billion Dollars into the reality of my bank account.You just misunderstand what i write, probably on a bit of purpose, but i don´t even care. here is what i said, maybe try again:
"It´s generally about a society where SLAVERY is a fact of life but embedded and openly, like ancient societies were, and not slavery by women alone either, and hell, not slavery of ALL women either. Part of Gor is the Free woman, and she is honoured and valued. Part of Gor is the male slave, and slavery is harder for him too. The whole modern earth dispute over women´s rights doesn´t even exist within Gor.. it has seen a millennia long and alternative approach there, and one obviously not easy or simplistic either."
A no go, and an absolute one even, should be defined a bit clearer.. so that misbegots like me find their righteous confinement, innit?
So, the answer might be: SL Gor is badtalked a lot by people who take a fictional, non-coercive setting for ROLEPLAY for a coercive real world sociopolitical opinion.
