I'm just curious. Please, no discussion. There are plenty of threads already out there for that. Just vote one way or the other.

Should religious, political, or sexual preference micro badges be allowed on the Geek?

My vote: No.

Edit: Cleared up what I meant by sexual.

I'm not sure what you mean by sexual. Do you mean little dirty pictures, gender designations, or references to sexual preferences?


Edit: whoops, sorry. Is that discussion?


For.

For!

*I'm guessing that anyone that has any strong convictions is going to say yes to this, while people who don't will say no.

**Never mind, I was wrong.

Against.

I should add, for all the reasons Anye states better than I had been able to, here:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/1180126#1180126

Oh, and Chad, I think you are mistaken. My convictions are quite strong. For the reasons Anye explained, however, I think it is better for the community if these things were not on microbadges.

I would vote no.

microbadges should be related to boards, games, geeks or some combination.

Yes. The microbadges should be a mini-profile, which members can use to identify things important to them.

Yes to all.

If someone wants to be seen as a miniatures playing beerdrinker, or a democratic muslim, that's their choice. They're not required.

A beer drinking miniatures player? That's pretty divisive, Paul. You're sure to offend someone that way.

No to Dallas Cowboys badges. That's anathema.

Re: A survey: For or against religios, political, or sexual
I'm going to abstain because I don't think a decision to restrict the ability of certain minorities to associate themselves with certain symbols for purposes of solidarity or whatever possible reason should be decided by popular vote.

Sorry for the editorializing, but that's my vote.

I vote Yes

The badges are voluntary. If you personally want to make a decision not to show your sexual preference because you’re afraid what others might think of you then you can remain in the closet, the same goes for preferences regarding politics, religion, beverages and et cetera. In the end the choice is with the individual.

I see no reason to remove the choice to use badges of a certain kind to protect the individual from him or herself.
