Why aren't Bye Bitch gifs banned?

I mentioned they should be banned in the Banned User thread when three gifs were posted and my post was deleted without comment, and the gifs remained. This leads me believe that mods have no problems with these gifs, which I believe are misogynic. I believe they have no place in a forum for women's tennis.

I know this topic has been raised before in TF over the years. Has this ever been discussed by the admins?

Re: Why aren't Bye Bitch gifs banned?

These gifs have been discussed by the mods and admins. The basic consensus is that, while we agree they are somewhat inappropriate, we have agreed to allow their use as we feel they aren't taken particularly seriously, and they've been used so often that particular cow is out of the barn.

Having said that, the term "bitch" is, in general, considered offensive and demeaning to women. Posts using the term will be deleted and repeated use of the term may result in an infraction.

A double-standard? Yes. But one we are going to live with for the foreseeable future.

Yes, max, nice reasoned answer. Now can you get one of the 3 NT mods to do the same concerning my PM?

Thats right. Only aappropriate way of using a word "bitch" is "bitchard". You may use it freely, and mods wont do anything. Otherwise, you'll be deleted/banned.

To be honest I'm not familiar with the term, I assume it's in reference to something or someone offensive?
