[SUGGESTION] Anti-LGBT Tag

Postby Barbaria » Thu Dec 01, 2022 4:01 pm

The idea is simple: an anti-LGBT tag for every region to use.

I previously brought this idea up here, but Sedgistan replied with this:

Sedgistan wrote:We're not adding tags for everything, not every tag needs an anti-equivalent, and the answer is no.


While he may have a point, it is most likely that he is using a red herring, by attempting to stop what could be a problematic tag from passing by questioning the need for more tags. Therefore, I have decided to start a brand new thread to further support the passing of an anti-LGBT tag, as I believe Sedgistan did not consider every part of my post.

About problematic, this new tag could stir up anger from many regions, and by that I only mean regions based on the LGBT tag. However, more regions, especially ones that are religious, fascist, and conservative, could benefit from this new tag. This is because they generally are opposed to LGBT, no exceptions. As many are opposed to fascism, as many are opposed to communism, and as many are opposed to capitalism. Yet they get an enemy, and LGBT doesn't.

In summary, an anti-LGBT tag can be used by a lot of regions and would help identify them. This makes this tag actually useful, and not just an extra tag that nobody will use.

I don't think that's how the game works.

Yes, it is how the game works.

Someone suggests something, and the admins consider the suggestion. Then, they add it if it's actually useful.

Don't believe me? Two examples that happened recently:

No. I just believe we should focus on other issues right now.

(Perhaps unwisely) ignoring both Sedge and UC...

...It's not a terrible idea, but it opens the door for a tag for every single social issue people disagree about acceptance of. Do we want pro and anti abortion tags? How about pro and anti religion tags? How about pro and anti tags for every letter in the LGBTQ+ spectrum, what about pro and anti fractional reserve banking tags? The correct answer, of course, is no.

I'd rather that this site not sanction people to spread their bigoted views about LGBT people more than it already does.

I prefer it when they're upfront with it actually.

It would be useless. Very few people would add it, and any regions that use the tag will likely get raided and destroyed, expect that one outlier. It just seems like a recipe for disaster.

having a tag for this would actually make it easier to know which regions to avoid like the plague. other than that, it's not really great. I doubt anyone would want to use it, either.
