Hi, I'm an adult whos into anime. ALSO male reproductive organS!

Can we get a reason to why such a harmless emoticon was removed for being to “offensive”? Does this mean saying fine upstanding member of society, or any other form of hate words is bannable now?

Signed. It’s pretty bogus to remove that harmless emoticon when all forms of racial slurs are allowed without problem.

Also, if the nazi emoticon is hate speech, why is Log in to see images! allowed?

That’s every bit as hateful. As is Log in to see images!

Apparently, you need to be as cool as Mel Brooks before you’re allowed to lampoon Nazism.

This. At the start of the game you have to click a bumon with the text “I am not easily offended”. If people are getting offended over this, they are going against their agreement they made when they clicked that bumon/typed those words. A nazi flag is just as offensive as Log in to see images!

Oh No! I loved that emoticon. My schadenfreude is terribly sad now.

And…c’mon, if we gonna worry about Nazi-ism and Hate, does anyone wonder if Log in to see images! might imply that all homosexumals like to eat human feces?

Also, as Acid Flux pointed out, there are 6 different KKK avatars hosted within this game.

Why is some hate speech ok but others isn’t?

Before it got removed, I read not one good word about the nazi flag. Now, everyone seems to miss it. Well, I submitted it and for me it’s fine to have it removed. It was not very good, technically, looking blurry and the dimensions weren’t perfect. Maybe a funny Hitler gif could take its place?

If a nazi flag got removed, how is a hitler gif going to stay? The fact is, there was no good reason for the flag to be removed.

We want to keep it because flag > nothing.

EDIT: And because there was no reason to remove it. It’s an issue of principles.

There may be legal reasons to remove it, even if Canadian or American law isn’t as strict as German law, when i comes to swastikas. Imagine walls of this emoticon in RP forums. Also, should it be forbidden in GD in general?

A hitler gif is not as offending imo, though it depends on what it would look like.
