Don't you SEE that there doesn't have to be a direct "go have sex" message? Kids see "I love to do x in bed" and don't think "oh that person is much older than me", they think "this person is cool and they're doing x, I should be doing that too". It's not necessarily even a conscious thought. That was a ridiculous post. And no MOST sexually active teenagers don't get STDs or pregnant, perhaps you should try to better inform yourself.
Right, no. Yes, 'children' can be INFLUENCED by what they read or see, that doesn't mean their actions are dictated by that. You seem to be under the impression kids are all mindless things that walk around and 'monkey see monkey do', I think you're completely forgetting what YOU were like at that age. You didn't feel too young to try things and no matter how many times someone called you a kid, you'd still reserve that term for someone younger than even yourself. Yeah it's easier to influence young adults the younger they get, but they have their own free will and make their own decisions. They can decide for themselves whether to partake in sexual acts, if the desire is there they'll do it regardless of input from the internet. The internet is absolutely full of things that are much worse than this.
At the end of the day, what do you expect from a gender and sexuality section? Kids are curious, they're gonna ask questions they're curious about but can't ask anyone else, that's what this section is for. It isnt' like there's anything particualrly explicit in any of the threads, the fetish one is mainly basic, rather tame stuff. We'd rather they asked questions and got good answers HERE rather than figure this stuff out when it's too alte, education is far better than ignorance. It's the rules of the section not to post anything considered too crude, and we stick to that, but all kids around the age of 13 begin to become curious about sex related things, hell I know I did. I read up on all sorts of stuff when I first found out about it but that didn't affect my decision to have sex in a direct way, I didn't read someone who would say 'I like bondage' and think YEAH IM GONNA GO TRY THAT NOW. You need to have a bit more respect for 'kids' and realise most of them are smarter than you seem to think, I knew at that age I was too young and I wanted to save it for when i'd enjoy it. You seem to have a prejudice against kids.
edit: At the end of the day, what's being said is correct. you can have your opinion that kids are over sexualised, and we believe that we're informing kids, not pushing them into anything. We aren't saying YEAH GO HAVE SEX IT'S GREAT. That would be a different balll game. But the parents allowing their children on the internet where this kinda stuff is so easily accesible is NOT our responsibility, we aren't babysitters and they must have a level of trust in their kids to let them do that. If they don't, it isn't our problem. We can't limit the content of a forum so much when all ages of people join, but there is a parents note in the newbies section and the rules of this section are clear.
edit edit: also, I hope you're enjoying belittling some of our younger members, hope it feels big and mature to do that. Want a prize for that?
