B.But... there's a politics forum. You're on it right now. DDDD:
And there hasn't been a single constructive discussion to come out of it.
I've either personally shut down or seen numerous threads shut down by other admins when in the political category.
It would be one thing if people could debate things peacefully, but as most people are not truly taught how to debate without relying on fallacies to complete their arguments, it just winds up being a huge clusterfuck of hurt feelings, sore attitudes and it creates animosity and then a slew of other problems occur.
We've actually had users downvote others specifically because of something they've said in the forum that they interpreted as being directed at them on a personal level.
If everyone could remain civil, that would be great...but in the past, we've proven that it's not possible.
For the record, the Sex and Politics subcategory was created to discuss issues about sex that the government is trying to control: condom use in porn, abortions, birth control, GLBT marriage...that kind of thing.
Religion does affect a person's attitude toward sex, but I think the best place for those kinds of things is on SexIs.
