          Hello everyone! So, I know this may be a touchy subject, but, I want to state my views, along side a few others on this situation. So, you most likely know the word "gay" is censored, correct? Well, I think we should uncensor it. Not so we can insult people, oh no no no! It's just making the insult worse, in my opinion. The reason being is that this word shouldn't be offensive, at all. Making it censored as if it is a horrible insult, however, is not the route to go. I understand that you need to enforce rules within this community, but, this will not make things any better with the whole idea of it, better. Younger children that may end up playing this game may find that the word itself is censored, which may lead to the idea of it being an insult, which they may eventually use. You see, right now there is more acceptance about the group, and guess what? It should continue! This word is not harmful in the slightest bit, unless you take it that way, which, in that case, people are trying to eliminate. We need to join together and help the youth understand that being yourself is not a bad thing, at all. If we start teaching/using gay as an unoffensive term now, they may understand the concept when they are older, eaiser, and shouldn't have to fear it. I know some people may not agree with me, and I respect that. But, there are a lot of people that think that this is a very vital thing for the next generations down to learn, for the people that we entrust the future with to learn. Everyone should be accept, no matter what color, religion, orientation, gender, or nationality.

Also, sorry if this is poorly put out or repetitive, I'm trying with a foggy mind here

Much love and support! ~<3

I also agree with this, and I never understood why anyone would even think of using "gay" as a cuss word..it's like saying oh you're such a "straight" ..like what is this even ?
Anyhow,I also agree with the above,as long as people don't make ill use of the word

I do not have a problem with the word Gay at all. But why are we talking about sexual orientation? Sexual orientation has nothing to do with playing a game or going into Pixie Hollow. For me the word GAY means happy. Homosexual is the word I would use for either male or female same sex partners.
If we keep our conversations generic as we should in a public game then Gay, Straight, Lesbian, or Homosexual have no reason to be in the conversATION.

With all respect,

I do agree with you on this.  I would have wished dearly that gay would have stayed its original term.  It is like Goodbye, which truly meant god be with you in the middle ages.  I wish that there was another term we could have used.  Although, the dictionary has many terms that mean opposites definitions.  I really do not see the purpose of talking about sexuality in a game such as Pixie Hollow.  I would understand if they used such a term for its original intended definition, though.

No! Don't add it! Being gay is not right. It's wrong. You should STAY the gender you were born with. ...

That's a rude and sick thing to say. I hope you get reported, as I can't do so from my phone. How did this reply even get moderated?

Un-censoring gay would be a positive change. So then the younger kids don't think that gay is a bad thing, since it is not, there is nothing wrong with being gay. Everyone has their own point of views and we should respect that. Though we should not use the word incorrectly inside the game.

Have a nice day everyone!

I agree!! I don't want the youth to start seeing 'gay' as an insult either and start using it against other kids, it just isn't fair and their minds don't understand it is okay to be you. Saying 'gay' should be uncensored.

I very much support this motion!
Censoring it is just as bad as making it an insult. If someone, in the future, uses it as an insult, we can report them, but banning it altogether makes it seem like gay people are not welcome on FairyABC.

Using the term gay for happy is actually a pretty old term. People usually use it for sexual orientation nowadays, including the term homosexual. I can also see where you are coming from on having it not being in conversations. But I mean players don't talk about sexuality or orientation on a daily basis so I also don't see the harm in allowing the word "gay" to be in game.

Agreed! And if people use the word in an offensive way, then you can report those people, right? Right.
