Wikipedia users divided over sexual material

I always thought the purpose of encyclopaedias was to present information in an unbiased fashion. I also think this is precisely what wikipedia is doing with these topics. Hence no issue.

So easy to pretend that's actually an argument.



In other words, you don't have a comeback. You don't have kids, so claiming "you'd be fine with it" doesn't count. Be a pity if you knew what you were talking about.

I did have a comeback (not that your complete failure to effectively argue the point actually warranted a comeback), but you conveniently ignored it.

Have fun talking with that straw man.

That's my stance too I guess.
Nothing I've seen has been what you would call pornography. It's NSFW and they should have a warning, but I don't think it's pornography to the same extent that a porn site is.

Just my 2 cookies...

No, a video of ejaculation probably isn't necessary on Wikipedia, but there isn't a rule where you have to watch it. Nor is there a rule you even have to look up those words in the first place.
Points of interest:

1. In the second sentence on the news article it mentions, 'masturbation, "hardcore" sex and orgies'. That's 3 words right there that any kid's going to be curious about when (/if) they read this article. Which brings me to my second point...

2. Google has ten thousand sexdecillion times more obscene content on it. What's the most popular search engine these days? Did I hear the word Google? And what do people do on Google? Well, numerous things, but a lot of people go there to find answers. And there's BARELY any warning before the images/sites pop up.

So what's a kid gonna do when they see those words? Have a guess...

Two if you forget what children are like these days on the internet.

3. "But what about SafeSearch? No kid has EVER gotten past the SafeSearch feature."
You call that secure? I laugh in your face.
Any kid with the brains to use the internet has the ability to (even accidentally) turn that off.

4. In Google, If you have the default SS setting on (medium) and you search for 'SafeSearch' in images, I find it rather funny that the first picture has porn in it.

In conclusion: This is the internet.

They may need to introduce age verification and or some kind of filtering/parental control if the wish to post explicit sexual images.
