I "AlphaZER0" agree that while I am playing in the Potius Cras group CP, I waive my right to report anyone for KOS or attempted KOS on me under any circumstances. All kills on my character will be valid so long as my character is in the Potius Cras CP no matter how the character death came about. So long as I am playing a Potius Cras character that is working for / with the organization, or my forum name is on the group CP on the forums, I waive my right to report any KOS or attempted KOS on my character.
The point being we shouldn't go out of our way to make the people who haven't 'dealt' with it uncomfortable.
We don't need to appease everyone's personal feelings, but the thread basically speaks for itself. RapeRP is fucked up (even if it can further a plot sometimes), and if we can make some people feel better by eliminating it all together, then let's do it.
After all, we're playing this game and RPing to have fun. Why would anyone want to stop someone else's fun with something like pretend rape?
I've always been the type of person who could look at any horrible aspect of life and make a joke out of it.
That being said, and in accordance with what some other individuals have said on here already, the mere mention of rape can be incredibly traumatic for other people who are not as thick skinned as the rest of us (i.e. people who've actually experienced, or young folks who've yet to experience it at all.)
You can't look at this type of role play with a, "Well, it doesn't bother me to see it happen, so everyone else should just be able to say no if they don't like it happening." type of attitude.
Someone close to me experienced sexual trauma at the hands of another person and at the mere mention of rape, whether it be implied in a movie, book, or ever a small joke, really altered her mood for the worst. She'd more often that not shut down and get incredibly irritable, because hey, it brings up some fucked up memories that you had no control over. Keep in mind, this was just from a slight implication, nothing explicit.
So knowing that even a small mention of it can hurt a person, make them uncomfortable, and affect them emotionally, I'm all for it being banned.
Edit: Yes, it's a game, but the people are real. We've had real experiences and have real emotions, whether we're playing characters or not. We should all be mature enough to realize that some things are just not okay and shouldn't be expressed in front of others who won't always be of the same mindset as yourself.
