As part of your own arguments in the past (and I believe this issue as well), you conclude that what is "offensive" is the sole opinion of the viewer. Same applies here. I didn't find anything offensive with her post, but I'm not you. :-)

Debates. Take it to debates. Moan ....

<b>if you are typing with your child on your lap...YOU ARE A BAD PARENT, and no icon will help raise your child. because this is essentially what you are asking for. what parent sits infront of the computer, goes to an ADULT ART SITE and "interacts" with their child? okay, you want to educate your child in art???? explain about expression. use common sense...figure it out. </b>

That's an opinion, imo, and not a fact.
My 3 yr old grandson knows all the letters and numbers on this keyboard. He also spells & types cat all by himself. He also clicks his way around the images. He knows more about this computer than I do. How is that being bad? He's been exposed to titty's, apples and oranges, landscapes... how is that being a bad parent? He shows me his discomfort, and his comfort zones. I respect those. How is letting a child teach us to respect their own emotions a bad parent? He already skips the butt icons all on his own during his uncomfortable days. He clicks them on his curious days and we have fun naming body parts. Even so, there were many he liked, but many made him uncomfortable. It's his choice whether to open or not.. only HE knows his level of comfort for the day. He ASKS questions. Only *I* know when I'm in Q/A mode for the day and I choose when to sign-online with him.

I could put him in a padded room with just a crayon I suppose. Would that make me a better parent figure?

Debates, debates, debates. Please take this to the debate forum. Continued discussion here will result in this thread being closed.

Site discussions ... site discussions ... think site discussions... :-)

Cheers.

Getting back on topic... have you chosen a new icon yet, Scott?

Hehe - no. We'll let the voting run another week or so. Many folks only stop by once a week or once a month to check in. This will give everyone ample time to participate.

Cheers.
Scott

1. I am not a moderator in this forum, and like the rest of the WC community, I'm entitled to my own opinions, and entitled to express them.

2. I do read and I found your post antagonistic towards Ivy and her opinions. There is a way to say things in a way that gets your point across, without sounding like everyone else is either stupid or has their heads up their...um...i mean has their heads in the sand.

Do you not realize what she said was extremely offensive? Would you mind repeating EXACTLY what I asked and point out what part of that was offensive? Drop your personal dislike for me Arlene and please be OBJECTIVE. If you do not I recommend you read the part about standards. There are alot of people that take offense to that remark

OK. Youre not a moderator here. You have an opinion and I think it is wrong.
