I'm beginning to think a tag for degrading slurs (f*ggot, r*tard etc) should exist.

I'm not even talking about the mental health issue here, just that a tag to help users avoid or find this content seems like something that should have been done some time ago, and the tag degradation is too broad.

I'm not sure how tag creation works on this website and I don't want to go around tagging things with a tag that doesn't exist so i'm not sure what else to do than to start this topic in the event that the correct people see it.

I apologies in advance for any drama this post may cause.

Why not just go with the tag "slur?" There's already two instances of it, and it makes sense that a lot of people don't like slurs of any type.

If we start making that a more prominent tag and someone or someones go back and start tagging stuff with that then we can get it to be a tag that works well for a blacklist.

This way it's just one simple and obvious tag. This could be used for stuff regarding any state of being, really any word or phrase that attacks a person's physical, mental, or spirituality, or nationality.

Just a thought.

Well, because while all this stuff is bad, not all of it bothers everyone equally.

That said, the land of arousal is a weird place and we can't control what turns us on in fantasy land. Some people might want to specifically search for specific stuff. Plus, as far as this stuff goes, you can say a lot of nasty things without specifically saying any slurs.

Just like you can have a rating:s picture with graphic sexual text and it's still rating:s. Which is part of why I'm pushing this.

That said, one of my last posts was a rather detailed lists of all the sorts of things we might want to tag.

Since that's now on page one, I'll include it here again, to make stuff easier for others <3

(Again, trigger warning. I describe examples in places)

  • Racial slurs
  • Racially charged language ("Suck that big fat wolf cock, you black bitch")
  • Ableist slurs (such as cr*pple, or r*tard)
  • Ableist abuse (Discussing how someone is inferior for being physically/mentally disabled, mocking someone for their disability)
  • Homophobic slurs (F*ggot)
  • Homophobic language ("I'd rather be dead than gay")
  • Transphobic slurs
  • Transphobic language
  • Physical threats ("Do you want me to give you another black eye? last time you couldn't see for 3 days")
  • Death threads/promises (including the implication that "no one will miss them" or "come on, let's go so we don't have to listen to him die" )
  • Sexual abuse/threads of sexual violence ("When I catch you, I'm going to rape you")
  • Emotional abuse ("You're so damn worthless")
  • Slavery
  • Child abuse

(hm.. I missed religion. I doubt we have a lot of religions degradation, but I'm trying to be inclusive of all possible ideas.

Honestly I wouldn't mind a blanket profanity tag that had slurs implied, and then specific tags like "homophobic slurs" would imply slurs or something

Seems useful for people avoiding this content

Agreed -- there should be many implications, I think :)

This is seeming like the right idea, tags for specifics and the blanket tag slur.

Although i'm only seriously effected by a specific type, I wouldn't mind being able to avoid the other types out of preference so a broad tag seems a good idea.

These tags would also have a curb-cut effect of helping fetishists find this content easier, so other than the energy spent in this (surprisingly civil) discussion there's little to no downside.

SnowWolf said:
"transcript indexing"

Having some kind of tag that specifies a word id a good idea, but I doubt uploaders would go through the effort of tagging specific words (I doubt it will be easy to convince them to tag slurs in general, people either don't care or actively hate the idea) so i'm not sure of it's usefulness is practice. The existing system seems a better fit for this issue, and although I love the idea indexing seems like a feature discussion for another place or time.


NotMeNotYou said:
Why do you feel the tag degradation is too broad?
Wouldn't it work rather well if the tags degradation and text are used in tandem?

We do have multiple escalations for BDSM content (bound vs BDSM for example) so I'm not entirely against having a tag for different harshness levels of degradation as well.

The term degradation is definitely too broad, as viewing it brought up surprisingly few instances of what I am trying to tag.

The term verbal abuse is closer, but still not entirely specific enough, as still less than a quarter of the content even comes close to what i'm talking about.

However viewing this tag I have found comments from many users over the years who seem to want the same tag addition I do, for one reason or another.

Adding more specific tags ("slur" along with "homophobic_slur", "ablest_slur" and maybe something else) would not only help people who dislike or are straight up triggered (PTSD not slang) by these words to be able to more comfortably use the website, but also have the curb-cut effect of helping people into degradation content more easily find what they're looking for. (another thing I saw expressed by various users.

Although maybe renaming the tag to be something less likely to enrage right-wing users of the website may be an idea....


I really just want this to be over, making someone with PTSD crawl across abuse tags and manually tag slurs is a horrible idea from all sides.

woah, woah, way too many tags. people are going to keep asking for more and more overly-specific 'trigger tags', to the point where they're nonsensical. 90% of artists and uploaders can't be fucked to memorize and properly tag for each specific slur or type of 'degradation'. this will only lead to more pointless arguments in comments over people not adding the tags or using the wrong tags.

let's not turn e621 into the disaster that tumblr has become. if just seeing the word 'fag' is really enough to ruin your entire week, the best course of action would be to seek counseling. while it's a nice idea to have everything on the internet personally censor-able, it's a hopeless battle and not a realistic solution.

in short, what you're aiming for will result in a large sum of confusing tags that very few people will ever use. seeing how slur itself only has 21 tags and degradation only has 157, you should probably spend more time on getting those tags recognized and used first before you start segregating them further.

As I brought up before it's not used on this site in a way that would be helpful for using it as a way to block slurs because a) a lot of posts in the tag don't involve slurs and b) slurs can be used in contexts outside of that kink. If you look at the tag it's a fairly specific kink tag, making it 'the slur tag' would make that kink harder to tag effectively and harder to search for since it would now include harsher dirty-talk, rude pet names, friendly banter, etc. On the other end if you were looking for images with slurs in them they'll be mixed with things that don't include slurs at all.


Transphobic slurs are still used as general tags here and you wanna have a tag to blacklist specific slurs?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Not to say youre not on the right track but you really think that will take off outside of just using the tag "Slur"?

And then what about those images that actually have the words in them, like dickgirl and cuntboy is that now gonna get tagged with Slur as well, since they are? Or are we just here to pretend that thats not the case.

Fag is still an acceptable searchable tag as well, as well as other slurs that are homophobic and etc although thats been aliased away to something less "offensive"

But sure, ok, lets go through the trouble of adding trigger warning tags to make the site SEEM more inclusive and ignore all the other problems that Still havent (and wont be) fixed.

*squints*

I'm pretty sure I didn't say anywhere that this was an all inclusive list of individual tags... and that each and every individual item on that list required it's own individual tag.

As I see this is supposedly your first post, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt: Typically when a tag is brought up, we discuss a number of different circumstances and options regarding the tags in question. If a tag is covering too many things, should it be split up? What defines the two new tags? Or: Is this implication a good idea? Can we, truly say that all instances of Tag_X also have tag_a? For example, yes, all blowjobs (fellatio) include oral sex, but do all instances of fellatio involve a penis?

It's easy to say "YES," until you remember that there are pictures like this: post #1561236 where the penis is entirely obscured, yet the action is clear. This discussion helps prevent accidents from happening, accidents that are rather frustrating to clean up later.

So, for your information: I was listing things that *could* be tagged.

For example, "Suck that big fat wolf cock, you black bitch" does not use a racial slur. it would be improper to tag it as "racial_slur" but perhaps "racially charged language" and "racial slurs" could be tagged as one tag.

Homophobic slurs, and homophobic actions on the other hand could be combined easily into "Homophobic content" or something.

I wasn't listing everything to give each one a tag. I was listing circumstances that i've seen on images over the years that may fall into this category.

let's not turn e621 into the disaster that tumblr has become. if just seeing the word 'fag' is really enough to ruin your entire week, the best course of action would be to seek counseling.

If only it was so simple. (trigger warnings, please)

Mental health is not a sweet and simple "Just don't be upset anymore!" thing. IF you believe that "getting over" PTSD is as simple as talking to a therapist a few times, you're very very wrong.

Instinct--human, animal, everything-- is here to help us survive. We learn fears. If we climb a tree and a branch breaks, we learn to be more careful when climbing. We learn that some types of woods are stronger than others. We learn. We learn, for example that the whistling of a certain type means that there will be an explosion soon. We learn that gunfire means that it is time to fight, and run and hide. We learn that gunfire means we need adrenaline. We learn that gunfire can mean pain. it works well. Sometimes too well.

We learn that sounds, smells, locations, feelings can all lead to dangerous situations, or places where we must be cautious. Years ago, it was that tiger urine sprayed on a tree smells like danger. Now, it's the smell of war, or of someone's cigarettes, or aftershave. That same instinct that says that my daddy's deodorant is a pleasant safe scent is the same instinct that says that the combination of whiskey and Marlboros means danger.

A therapist helps. Oh good god, a therapist is a wonderful thing, and they help so much, if you've got a good one... but this takes years, if not decades, to 'work past' a trauma. In the mean time, you've still got your problems and you've still got to deal with it every day.

And one of the thing that helps with that is knowing "hey, I'm not up to being exposed to that today"

while it's a nice idea to have everything on the internet personally censor-able, it's a hopeless battle and not a realistic solution.

While true, why should we not try and make our own spaces safer?

"Outside is dirty, so inside should be dirty too" doesn't fly.

Well, the most recent thread about this was 37 PAGES long (forum #195804 - Creating Better Tags for intersex and trans characters), in which, I believe the admin statement was If we can have a system that is less vulgar (and doesn't compromise the tagging/search system) then why the fuck not change?

So... If you've got a good idea, maybe give that thread a skim over, then maybe message NotMeNotYou and ask if he'd mind you starting a thread regarding your idea. I speak for many of us that we would love to move away from those tag names.

In the mean time, that's no reason not to do work here.

Honey.

There are three choices.

"fag" is not aliased away, and people can tag it and it displays on images.
"fag" is aliased to invalid_tag and people get incorrect tags and erratic search results
"fag" is aliased to male/male, and posts are mostly tagged correctly, and findable.

There is no way to say "you cannot search for that term"

so this is the best solution provided by the system.

If you have a better solution, please feel free to share.

Likewise, if there are any other slurs that you think are inappropriate that need to be aliased away, please speak up.

But sure, ok, lets go through the trouble of adding trigger warning tags to make the site SEEM more inclusive and ignore all the other problems that Still havent (and wont be) fixed.

If you'll notice, I'm the op of that thread, I provided several options for replacement, did surveys, collected results, I even gave those results away and nothing that happened.

I DID speak up, I continued to and nothing happened.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/n12l8n7x5yznle9/Tag%20Proposal%20for%20Replacing%20Slur%20Tags.csv?dl=0

This is the result of that survey. THere was also a poll in that thread about it. The overwhelming response was yes the tags are hated and people want them changed, and the overwhelming winner was andromorph and gynomorph.

I had evidence, there's 96 responses here.

It was all ignored.

I've proposed other solutions to other problems as well, to no avail, many times to the point where I felt it wasnt worth trying anymore because nobody was listening.

I admit the "fag" thing is more of a nagging issue and I agree with how it's currently handled because other solutions to it, such as "invalid_tag" may cause issues down the line, though I dont see why its one of the only slurs that is still not alias'd to invalid tag.
Also queer, a word used for M/M historically (though more recently as a blanket for other things as well) is invalid but the slur is not. Same with Homoerotic

Meanwhile transgirl, transgender, trans* everything have all been aliased to invalid tag, with "Drama" as their cited reason for no other reason than they don't want to deal with it, so you tell me.

Again, no offense intended but this is a continued issue.


I absolutely agree this would be a valuable feature, but I'm somewhat against creating new tags for all potential slurs and triggers, unless there's a population of people who are actively seeking out their depiction. The number of tags to maintain could get out of hand fairly quickly, and without being applied rigorously, they'd be essentially worthless for the purposes of blacklisting; the people who'd most benefit from their existence are the least likely to seek out and propagate them. If your only goal to is avoid images containing certain content and interactions, many of the suggested censors do have existing tags that could be used (if they were tagged consistently) to filter out potential triggers:

The remaining instances could be covered by the addition of ableism, and transphobia, which could be applied liberally to potentially inflammatory dialogue. The issue is not so much the existence of tags for this purpose, but the diligence and frequency with which they are applied, as well as some potential ambiguity within them. For instance, death_threat and slur are generally unused, and nearly every instance of racism would be better suited by specieism (or maybe something like human_racism), but these are all tangible projects to be undertaken. I don't believe attempting to document and categorize each individual slur is an effective use of energy, and seems to be putting the cart before the horse.

A transcript or word-tagging system could help, but those run into much larger issues with how e6's entire search engine works, and I'm skeptical people would really use it. At the end of the day, inclusivity is definitely worth striving for, but I'm not sure realistically how many people would benefit from such a labor-intensive overhaul, only for a slight decrease in the odds of witnessing a trigger.

I suppose that's valid point: it is likely to create drama, considering the connotations that some of these terms have. And many foreign users are unfamiliar with them.

For instance, I suspect that something like disability_discrimination might work better than ableism, even if it is a mouthful.


Demesejha said:

I'm not sure what you mean. Unless I'm blanking, I can't find any precedent for invalidating slur tags, at least not by virtue of being slurs. fag aliases to "male/male" to the extent that fag is a word for a gay character, and someone who searches it is looking for a gay character. Their tolerance in doing so is debatable, but absolutely irrelevant to the results that should appear. Same thing applies to shemaledickgirl (arguably both slurs); people search for porn this way. The idea that the search engine should see me (pansexual) use the word 'faggot' and spout "you cannot search for that term" is bizarre.

The one invalidated "slur" (slang might be more suitable) I'm aware of is queer, and this is because it was invalidated earlier this morning. Because gender preference is not TWYS, Gay, lesbian, and queer are ALL technically invalid tags. The difference is that gay usually means m/m, so it's aliased as such to evade common mistakes, and to make searching easier. Queer on the other hand could apply to many non-hetero pairings (and was mistagged in each of its twelve instances), so it's invalid rather than risking the accidental application of a m/m tag to an intersex image.

Demesejha said:

Trans tags are invalidated under TWYS because from a purely visual standpoint, a character's current, apparent gender is the only relevant fact. Fairly well understood, and ingrained into most tagging guides: if it's got knockers and a snake charmer, that character is female. The "drama" in question occurred nearly five years ago when people were still getting the hang of TWYS, and were squabbling and deliberately mistagging. It's not admins "not wanting to deal with it," it's a site-wide ruling that's been undisputed for as long as most of us can remember.

however, this type of courtesy can easily get out of hand and abused by trolls or other malicious individuals. some people will start demanding 'trigger tags' for more and more ridiculous things, and everyone else will start hating anything related to trigger tags, even though some are valid and helpful.

this is what happened with tumblr, and is why few people take the word 'trigger' seriously anymore. what started as a good idea got abused and turned into a disaster.

Tumblr is a hub for the far-left, this website sure as hell is not. I'm more worried about being attacked for suggesting trigger tags than the tags somehow getting out of hand.

And I have a feeling the word trigger becoming a joke and political phrase was what ruined it, not some bizare idea of overuse.

The slight possibility that someone may ask for a nonsence tag is no damn reason to not add these tags, it was barely even worth mentioning to be honest.


I am having the kind of bad couple days that involves an inch of water on the floor of my bathroom, bedroom and closets. I need to reply more in depth all over, but right now, I'm just gonna add in this one thought:

They'd generally be indistinguishable from most tags, actually.

That said, most 'ridiculous things' that people might ask for are already tags.

No one really objects to us having:

sound
sound_warning (for posts with sudden loud sounds)
epilepsy_warning
trypophobia
spider
food
rape
gore

or anything like that. I honestly can't think of anything that would be *generally* requested that would require a new tag... except for this stuff. (which, again, I'll reply to stuff later. I am so tired right now)

this is what happened with tumblr, and is why few people take the word 'trigger' seriously anymore. what started as a good idea got abused and turned into a disaster.

Actually...
I've got a theory on this one.

▼ Very mild politics and social commentary follows

Generally speaking, the 'new generation' is always disregarded by the 'old generation'... the 'new kids' are always young, and don't hold the same values as the previous generation. They do strange things, and they're young and impulsive and dumb.

This is true of millenials. This is true of beatnik hippies. It'll be true in the future too.

... that said, there is a very strong trend right now, of using social media and news to influence public opinion. Which is why the headline of "millenials can't afford to buy houses" is turned into "millenials killing the housing industry with avocado toast!"

And a lot of it is based around lies and misleading statements. (I saw a post the other day that took world wide global statistics about knowledge of WWII and present this worldwide statistic as if it were exclusively american millenials alone.)

And a lot of this stuff that I'm noticing is based around the idea of "discredit the young. The young are dumb. The young are disrespectful. The young lean left, that's dumb. Don't be dumb. Stupid millenials are all young, foolish and ignorant." (i'm sure the opposite is around too, though!)

Anyway I'm rambling a little--sorry. Exhausted.

Anyway, my point is... I didn't notice trigger warnings start to be used in a negative context until "adults" started criticizing them for it. ..."being coddled" and "Life is pain" and whatnot. And this about stuff like requiring a college class have trigger warnings for stuff like rape and sexual abuse.

And over the last couple years, it's become something that is used as a weapon -- "I wouldn't want to trigger you" is basically internet troll for "I know I'm upsetting you and think that's funny." or "I'm belittling your feelings, because my right to say what I want is more important than your right to feel comfortable."

and these same opinions are the ones that are joking about "oh no! a BALL OF YARN! TRIGGERED!" ... while those who actually DO require trigger warnings struggle to be taken seriously.

There are always outliers-- but in a lot of cases, a trigger may be more common than one expects... even if it's not something you typically think of as a trigger.

But over all, I think it'd be better to allow for basic courtesies, rather than to assume people will abuse it and ask for unreasonable things right off the bat. If someone starts asking for all 5 letter words to be tagged, then we will deal with that then.


So, reading through everything I think the the whole *_slur tags would be perfectly fine.

However, do we need the distinction to *_language?
I'd argue that, for example, racial_slur and racially_charged_language would have so much overlap that it makes little sense to have two separate tags, and would instead argue those should be covered by a single tag.

The distinction between physical threats (non-fatal) and fatal physical threats would definitely be a good one to have.

Don't we have a slavery tag already? Or is that for threats about selling people into slavery?

I agree with this. my main concern is having too many vague or similar tags that will confuse people and start more drama in whether a picture should or shouldn't be tagged with it.
