This is about respecting a person and knowing where to draw the line.

All I'm saying is you can't get pissed at people for crossing the 'line' if you're line is far more conservative than most of ours. If soxnation would have posted something sexually suggestive about kids, that's one thing. But, I mean, come on... you haven't heard the line "since you were a twinkle in your dads eye"? What he posted was essentially that. He wasn't trying to say anything sexual about kids or anything even remotely provocative. It was a pretty PG joke.

I'm sitting here at work stuck on a programming problem so I figured I would browse this site. I cam across this thread and I must say that I laughed when I saw the picture too. In fact my supervisor was standing outside my office, came in to see what I was laughing about (she loves a good laugh) and she read the posts and laughed too. This is a 47 year old grandmother! It has nothing to do with "growing up" it has everything to do with people taking this too seriously in this world.

I said how I feel. It was my mistake. On some of the other sites I frequent, there's a point where we can step away from the main focus of the site and just act like people. My fault for thinking the same might happen here.

I was just curious as to what you found so offensive. Posting a pic of sperm cells and calling it 'my kid'... I just don't see how that's offensive. If it was a girl and she posted a pic of an egg, I'm betting you wouldn't have found that offensive. It's the same thing...

I just don't think it was an appropriate association. It's not something I can explain, if you had kids you might feel it too. I'm not saying everyone MUST agree with how it made me feel, but since the OP removed his pic and Sox has backpedaled and of course Chad has chimed in to let us know it wasn't offensive enough for his tastes and that's what we "should expect", I don't think I'm in the minority here.

I think the thread was started with good intentions. I don't think all the posts were done in the same light. Sure, I could've posted something funny in retort but it wasn't the "Crap on things that are dear to me" thread, at least not to me.

While I don't have kids I can understand what you are trying to say. Correct me if I'm wrong... You are just saying that bringing a life into this world is the most magical thing that can happen in anybody's life and it is something that should never be looked down upon, degraded, or made light of. While the post wasn't full of hate, disrespect, etc... it still made light of the child-bearing process and can be offensive to those who have had or have tried (unsuccessfully) children. Sorry for butting in but I thought that my explanation was probably very close to how you feel and that it may be easier for me to put into words.

Allow me to be the voice of reason

I feel the picture of sperm cells was self-deprecating humor. The Sox Man was simply saying, hey, the best I can show for my "kids" are these sperm cells that haven't really amounted to anything, but perhaps someday under the right conditions my sperm cells will turn into real human beings. Conversely, The Scionic Man is not saying you can't make fun of the child-baring process, but rather that a picture of sperm cells in this thread is inappropriate relative to other pictures posted by proud parents of their children, especially since some of the parents may even want to show the thread to their children so they can see themselves. However, I don't think The Sox Man was trying to be disrespectful towards other people's children, it's just that within the thread's context his self-deprecating humor would have put parents' pictures of their real children in the same context as a bunch of sperm cells.
