Yo, kid, I dunno if you read the rules, but I'm only here to help you. And, well, sorry to tell you this, but if you thought my previous post had a lot of words, you're really going to hate this one.
Okay, wow, thats a lot of text for your answer so I'll break it up.
The italics indicate you think you've got some kind of response that changes any part of what I've said, and not only that, but that it is obvious to everyone who reads your words. You've got a lot to learn, child.
1) This isn't science class and I'm not going to have smart-ass debate. This is a comic and its own "laws of the universe" exist in its own universe. Sex is how you make people? :youdontsay:
I was not trying to be a smart-ass then, and I'm not now. I could now, since you've gone and decided you want to be a jerk! But I'd rather figure out just why you got upset.
With regards to your specific complaint about rules within fictional universes pertaining to themselves: The laws of the universe of a fictional universe by necessity have to operate on a logic that is consistent with rules that are understandable from the universe in which the fictional universe exists within
. Sex is how that happens in the real universe we're currently a part of, hence my referring to it as the means by which we understand it in fiction.
2) Seems? Shmemes. There's nothing about bare reproduction that's philosophical. I made this thread about Bleedman comics so it's posted in Bleedman comics.
There's plenty to be discussed that's philosophical about life in any of its stages of development and how those can be applied to the comics, but you didn't seem interested in JUST discussing the comics, but the visual themes behind them.
3) What a train-wrecked, shitload that 3rd paragraph is! I see you've classified this as a philosophical thread. Its not.
I can make anything philosophical, and so can anyone. I went that route because to discuss any sort of themes in literature, prose or poetry, you delve into the meaning behind putting any single thing into any story.
4) Yes, I see your point, in this instance sex is the majority of the character origins, but that's because its the one humans use? Everything uses sex to reproduce, what the fuck are you talking about.
Amoebas don't, asexual reproduction exists as an option, hence the ability to explore those ideas. If you weren't interested in discussing other methods, why would you put this sentence here to undermine your point?
To make sure people get whats important out of this heres a tl:dr
No, question not answered. BeeAre, you pretty much attempted a derailment by calling this a matter of philosophical.
i'm not derailing, i'm legitimately inquiring as to where your discussiong is to go, because I'm the moderator for this forum--I've been specifically the moderator for this forum longer than I've been the senior global moderator for the site.
so what ARE you attempting to discuss if none of my points are relevant?
Did I fucking stutter?
*-*-*-* No one else but BeeAre is recommended to read this:
WHAT I WANT TO DISCUSS? Excuse me?
I don't own the thread and while I do certainly hate derailments I don't have a bigger voice than anyone else. This thread could become about gay ponies for all I care but not until the answer is decided by the overall. If enough people agree that this was philosophical and that turns out to be generally accepted answer I'll happily be on my way without "AND THEN THEY FUCKED" going through my head as a flat story tool.
You made the thread, you are the one who brought it up for a topic of discussion. In forums outside of the spam forum, threads are made to be dedicated to single topics. Did you read the rules? Do they or do they not indicate that individual topics expressed in the specific sub-forums as presented are to be discussed specifically? If enough people derail the thread, you would be, as the thread owner, within your right to ask them to stop discussing other things. My inquiry was into what you fucking wanted us to talk about, because I didn't understand you. I wasn't seeking to demean you.
Please, indicate in the future what your intentions are when someone inquires to you as to what the driving point behind a thread is. It helps further the discussion.
A bit too eager to close threads dont'cha think?
You are a bit too eager to jump on me as someone fucking oppressing you, and I'll be glad to actually be a douchebag to you and close your thread and ban you if you want to start breaking the rules. If you want me to oppress you, I can, but you haven't done anything wrong yet, so you don't have to defend yourself against me, who is not attacking you.
Relax, little one.

Mmk, yeah maybe no. I'd love to discuss my personal sexuality given the time but later okay?
Is your take on sex somehow not relevant to sex as being a part of a discussion on why sex is used to make a character in a fictional universe that must share some basis with the real universe in which we participate?
You confusing little creature, relax, breathe in, and accept that I am not your enemy.
TL;DR read my entire post, and don't get upset because someone wants you to read, and don't encourage others to get upset because a post has a lot of words. Discussion forums exist for discussion, and I'm happy to provide you with an outlet for that discussion, especially if you indicate through your posting that you've got a specific direction for your topic to be discussed.
