Apologies for starting this topic - didn't realise it was so controversial.

Absolutley fine. We've posted all maner of pics on the forum in the past anyway, so I don't see the big deal about slash pics which are generally fairly tame anyway.

I'm fairly sure I once posted a pic of James Spader and Elias Kosteas about to kiss in Crash, and I don't recall anyone getting upset.

Most slash pics I have seen were not offensive to me
of course you do need a sense of humour for some of them.
I voted OK because I am an artist and would not want censorship
to be the rule.
In the art groups I belong to we always write AC adult content
in the subject line out of courtesy for those who have younger
children...

I have started 2 journals for Paul Darrow and B7 fans and friends
of the AvonsAngels
decided not to include slash pics because I know Paul Darrow would
never approve, so out of respect for him will not do slash pics.
Although personally I don't have a problem with slash pics or stories.

Please bear in mind that this is a PG website, so any pictures should be no worse than the one you originally had in your signature Pickle.

I agree somewhat with Cats.I can see slash in fanfic,because it's the writer's interpretation of the characters,but when you start putting heads on someone else's torso,well,then I think it becomes insulting to the actor/actress.I know some celebrities like to visit their fan sites,and I doubt if Paul Darrow or Gareth Thomas visited us they'd be pleased.

My views are pretty mixed. On the one hand, it's art (kind of) but if the actor dislikes their image being used in that way that would be sufficient to mute my enthusiasms. Is PD anti-slash?

Futsie, how do you know what gareth's torso looks like?

I was informed of Paul's dislike of slash many years ago by friends
of his. I have always respected the man and continue to this day...

Believe it or not I was so new to fan-fic back then did not know what
slash was until I saw Spock and Captain Kirk in a very athletic pose

Brent Spiner/Data was a scream telling about slash mailed to him
with images of Data and Tasha.
Brent showed what was allowable commenting on how anatomically
correct the sketches were

Does it have to be a dummy?
