Houston, we have a (rep) problem

Ah Second Life, where I can find such a variety of things that I can see and do, and such a font of creativity....

Not according to the mainstream media, where the only thing going on is sex, sex, sex. Never mind that the largest land category isn't Adult, but rather Moderate. Never mind that yours truly is capable of going for days, if not weeks, without seeing a prim peenor, and I'm sure a lot of people are the same way.

Ladies and gentlemen, what we are witnessing the phenomena known as the Vocal Minority, where outsiders focuses on the 'freaks' of the subculture to the exclusion of everything else, painting a very distorted picture of the subculture as a whole. Ain't nothing we can change about that.

I'm not advocating censorship. Far from it, I'm a big believer of freedom of speech (meaning I may not like what you say, but I'll defend your right to say it). I just wanna reassure people that your chances of being hit in the face with a penis gun are practically nil (unless you wrote a article that hints that you may be 'terrified' of it). And maybe the rest of us can stop acting like tearoom biddies when the thought that people may be using the internet for porn crosses your collective minds.
