    Multiple threads have been made on this. lol

    Technically, a user made a thread saying about how he thought that Inexorably's profile picture was inappropriate, despite there being "worse" on TSR, in terms of prudishness, and from context, and knowing this user from past threads, it was singling out homosexuals.

    I saw the thread title in recent discussions, and instantly guessed it was going to be about the @ed person.

    I was already planning to change mine back to men kissing (a while back I had a homoerotic avatar), but this thread merely catalysed the process to that very moment (it was on my priority list beforehand.)(I wanted to annoy user, so it was bumped up.) Other people followed suit (can't remember if there was anyone else before me.)

    The thread was a very hot topic, but was unfortunately closed down. ;/ :cry2:
    (I don't like threads being deleted.)

    No, all the people who done this largely done this on their own volition.

    But if that is true, that means I set trends... :such power:

    Can someone tell me what the movement has actually done in the end? Like I understand why it was done but really, someone's comments shouldn't have gotten to so many people (especially on this site) lmao. I'd be changing avatars all the time whenever something racist or sexist was said to me.
