    I never realized the shirtless pic of my subby would be offensive. I could be sorry this makes you feel a certain way, but I’m finding it difficult since the problem seems to be a personal one. I took and enjoy the pic and told him to use it as his avatar. I didn’t realize he was trying to be manly and trying to overcompensate. Who knew?

    I’m sure my cleavage is offending someone out there as well, so perhaps that should be restricted to make things gender equal.

    Your avatar should represent what you would put on a t-shirt and wear out in public.

    I don't think your avatar would offend in today's society.

    Isn’t it interesting that we’re so worried about offending people that came to the web site called “ChastityMansion” what is a new person expecting when the check out this site for the first time flowers and sunsets? No matter what Avatar you post I’m sure you’ll offend someone.

    We don’t want to remove Chastity completely but keep it respectful. Posting pictures of yourself while locked shouldn’t be an issue but maybe not as your avatar. The option of avatars not appearing and having the text only is a great idea for those of you logging on at work or in public.

    As this whole concept and way of life continues to grow in popularity we will attract more and more people from many different backgrounds, that will come here to check out this “Chastity Thing “ we don’t want to scare them away in the first couple minutes. Well want them to know that this place is different and exciting and Chastity is something they would like to experiment with. First impressions are very important to what people think. What first impression are we giving and want to give.

    With all respect, I don't consider your picture to be offending.

    Captions can be difficult to read when they are scaled down.

    Could you supply a written letter of permission? :)

    I was speaking hypothetically. If we required permission slips, yes that would be difficult.

    A bit of beating around the bush going on here, and as predicted some months ago, newer members may or may not know the backstory that lead us to this point.

    For what it's worth, I don't see a problem with using images of 'people' as avatars (minus dick pics), as long as you don't claim to be the person depicted. Guys may have photos of their wives or girlfriends or just someone else. If there's a complaint, then it would need to be decided on a case-by-case basis. If someone uses a long-dead Hollywood star, most people should realize Judy Garland or Bette Davis has not come back from the great beyond to talk about their Holy Trainer or whatever. Common sense should not need to be codified.

    Various bits of nudity or semi-nudity shouldn't be any more outrageous than what we see in the media today. As someone suggested, would you wear it on a t-shirt?

    I would humbly suggest that pinching a photo and trying to pass that image off as yourself should be known as The Mascara Effect; to some it would mean applying a cover to make yourself look more attractive or appealing, but it's all smoke and mirrors. To others, the term will have an entirely different meaning.
