Why isn't gay-bashing treated the same way as racial-abuse on this forum?

A couple of days ago, I was bashed a lot for my sexuality on this forum. I know that the infractions and stuff are private matters between the moderator and the poster, but if this was racial-bashing, he would've been banned by know. The guy is still posting so he is surely not banned.


I hope you guys realise how serious gay-bashing is, and it should not be treated in the same manner as racial-abuse.

First of all, Brad I'm so sorry you went through that.

Second of all, I think he brings up a good point. Gays on this board are treated like second class citizens when it comes to other posters "gay bashing". If a black poster is ever called the n-word, that poster would be banned within minutes. However calling someone a ****** and other discriminatory names repeatedly doesnt warrant anything harsher then a slap on the wrist? Considering how big a percentage gay posters make on this board, I think this is an issue that needs to be addressed ASAP!!

Exactly, I know its an anonymous forums and stuff, but toleratingstuff like people bashing us for our sexuality and then on top of all the abusive words saying that 'they hate and cannot take gay people seriously' is rediculous

usually i wouldn't even give a sh** about what some ignorant hater-posters have to say, but actually it's definitely not right to let anyone get away with stuff like this, because it's absolutely the same like calling a black person a stupid ******, so i totally agree with you!

Re: Why isn't gay-bashing treated the same way as racial-abuse on this forum?

i know, i was followed on the board for a good month by a poster who would reply to all of my posts referring both to my sexuality and sex all the time.

he got warned, carried on, got a short ban and still carried on. the funny (oh ironic depends how you look at it) thing was he actually got a long ban in the end for calling me the N word (hello im white ).

I guess the worst case scenario is bashing a black homosexual.

I don't know what happened to you and how serious it was, but they don't necessarily ban for these kind of things, they may as well hand infractions. I've been wished death a couple of times and I know 100% that at least one of these posters was only given an infraction.
I'm sure mods/admins don't let people get away with the things you're describing

You get infractions for posting a harmless thread like 'its sad to see player x play so badly' because it is termed as a live scoring thread. Is gay-bashing at the same level as a harmless mistake of posting a thread in the wrong forum now ?

I dont think I am allowed to say if I /or anyone else got an infraction for such a thing, since the moderators might hand me another infraction for discussing private matters openely

It is not true to tell that nothing is done. Gay bashing is not allowed on this board, just like racism, mysoginism and other bad behaviors. And trust me, their authors are punished the same way. But we need to know the facts before giving sanctions, so please use the report function or send an email to a mod or an admin.
