Really... there is an ATS moral police force???

Yep. And it's called ToS.

Yup.

Which, if you think about it, might be the entirety of the plan. Go so far to the looney tune, that people will accept the lesser lunacy as an acceptable alternative.

I haven't watched either video, nor will I, I've much better things to do with my time.

Given the commentary here, and other places, I can most definitely see other extremists using this as an example of the depravity of the West...

Given there are more Orthodox beliefs that find this video series repugnant, adding Orthodox Islam to them won't surprise me in the least, much less the more extreme elements within any religion.

I guess its not being considered as upholding ATS standards when the videos initially were released to a target audience of minors. The sensitivity of the adult mind now trumps the innocence of the minds of minors? This would indicate that what our children are subjected to is less scrutinized as to the same content being displayed on an adult conspiracy site that's motto is 'Deny Ignorance'. C'mon now... nobody violated T&C rules by sparking debate about a touchy subject to some.

I am the one who posted the ice cream video, and it's more vile then the 'sex junk' one I feel. Children should not be exposed to that... that is exactly why I put it here for us adults to debate over. Nobody condones the acts in this video... its very clear by the debate occurring. There is not much logic in sweeping it under the rug and acting like it never happened. I don't endorse the 'out of sight, out of mind' philosophy. Go and ban me if I broke a law... I'd expect the actual mods to handle these matters though... not just the random opinion that another member should be banned for posting something another doesn't prefer to consume.

The moral police are of opinion... the mods are around ATS to handle rule breakers. Unless that is occurring here, I'd say let's just move on and try to deny ignorance. Denying ignorance doesn't mean running from it or acting like it doesn't exist.

Heck, PBS's Nature series which often showed things narrated by Attenborough that had more sex, and more accurate sex, than anything Bill Nye has ever aired.

Give me all of that.

Yeah... I could deal with that.

His politics were just as left as Nye's, but man, the difference is remarkable.

'course Sagan was a total gentleman, Nye is not.

The ice cream video pokes fun at the "gay conversion therapy" as shown in the beginning. Anyone who finds it vile tells me more about them. Actually the more I see it the more it helps people understand why WE find the idea of "gay conversion therapy" vile.

The content of the video is not so much a care or concern with me. if you go back to the earlier pages of the thread, you'll read that I could care less about what adults do in their own bedrooms.

I do not offer the same courtesy to the content displayed to minors... the innocent minds that are not mature enough to be forced to think of such things. Now, instead of playing games they have to ponder gender conflicts? Anybody that finds any bit of sanity in the message being displayed to a targeted CHILD audience has zero concepts of T&C to begin with.

The idea that the videos are too emotional for other ATS members to bear witness to, and the emotion brought forth calls for a banning of the member that shared the video is just laughable. How I feel about the video is irrelevant... but I will defend a child's innocence to the death of me.

How did humankind start to worry more about its crotch and being enabled to live like a rock star than being a contributing member of society? All the strife of human rights so we can give voice to our crotches?

It's like somebody wants us enslave by sex than be set free from material needs?

Blame the far-right Christian Fundamenalism.

So sad to see "scientific" people pervert the sex drive that is nothing more than a mechanism to ensure the survival of a species.....

What does that have to do with my statement? It's true that Christian fundamentalists started the whole mess.

What is the percentage of far right Christians out of the population? And you blame the mess on them?

Again, how long was Obama against gay marriage? Simple question?

Why ask me about Obama? He attended that racist church. So why should I be surprsed that he was against gay marriage for a while?

And you do not realize how powerful the evangelical Christians in politics are. They influence politicans, especially Trump.

Who cares what Obama did.

Christians don't only have sex to ensure the survival of the species either but the far right are the ones making it out to be a matter of heaven and hell instead of "just a mechanism to ensure the survival of a species".

What is your point. Mine is simple. If you don't understand addictive behavior and the shoving of the perversion of sex to manipulate the voting minds of the population, then I feel sorry for you.

Once sex robots become common, we slip into a society turned off by human contact as outlune in the Foundation Series, and as we strive for clone reproduction, sex will become a moot point.

Then why get caught up on sexuality if it is only a product of evolution?

Is that what scares you? Do you realize how many transgender people are there? Less than 1% of the population.
And we've had sex robots, dolls and sim games for years. Do you see the decline of civilizations and human contact? No. Though I do worry about the phones. Every time I go to restuarants I always notice people siting in front of each other texting without uttering a single word to each other.

Tell that to the religious zealots.

Everyone else has sex however they like without the guilt.

You seem to be saying that sex should be a moot point now so who cares if it becomes that after the sexbots come on the scene?
