    I am proposing we get full freedom of speech on tsr, you can write ANYTHING you want. This is freedom of speech, an unpopular view nowadays, especially in uni, but hopefully we can promote freedom of speech on tsr.

    Freedom of speech. lol

    Someone somewhere somewhen (I know there are time travellers :awesome:) will have some opposite view on said unpopular opinion, which will also give them said 'Freedom of speech' to oppose it. Said LeyK

    Sooo what is the point of it if you will be oppressed in either scenario
    Huh:huff:

    I mean should a person be able to post pornogrpahy on TSR.
    In my opinion, no. Pornography is immoral , in my opinion. It does not only degrade women and displays them as sexual objects ( lets be honest pornogrpahy is created for males), but it also creates addiction

    I thinnk sexual images need to be censored in on TSR

    I read a stat somewhere that said 1/3 of porn viewers were women. Regardless, morality is quite a subjective issue. If we're censoring everything "immoral" we're gonna end up with some people wanting anybody talking about having sex before marriage to be banned, which is errr... iffy.

    I got a detention at school for saying my thoughts (and providing the facts) and went to the head to remove it on the basis of freedom of speech, some people still believe in it.

    You do realise freedom of speech is not absolute OP? You can't say anything you want. Dangerous speech can be suppressed by the government such as defamation, threats, inciting crimes etc.

    TSR however, is not the government and anything that does not comply with it's terms of use/service will be taken down. That doesn't mean your freedom of speech is being taken away, it just means your ability to post such things on this particular website has been taken away.
