    I don't take issue with this. This is not a hookup site, and showing people you care about within a profile about you is not so weird.

    Must everything be overly sexualized?

    Ok, calm down. First of all, I think you have a one sided view of what a profile is. You obviously think it's about sex only. I always thought a profile was for the purpose of showing aspects of yourself you want seen. Believe it or not, some guys aren't here for sex, but come to make friends and trade fitness tips. I've seen the guys with "boys" featured in the profile, but along with that, they are themself, fully dressed and non sexualized in their pics.
    The RJ staff are professionals, I think they'd know if something was hinky with a guy posting pics of a child. They review every picture so have a little faith in them, ok.

    I never saw any evil in that.

    I don't understand the pics that guys post of girls hanging on them. It is a specific type of photo i see over and over where a women has both arms around them and is literally hanging on them. It must mean something cus i see this same pose over and over.

    Why is it any weirder for a guy to put up a picture of his kids, nieces, or nephews than to put up a picture of a cat or dog? I admit I find it weird when someone puts up as their main picture a picture of them when they were 7 years old or whatnot, but just as another picture in the profile it seems completely reasonable.

    Not everything is about sex.

    Read it again..
    he says, "WHY WHY WHY with the way the world is today??"
    Which in my opinion, is talking about how kids are being "targeted" these days. So in fact, I think he is talking about sex acts of some kind.

    please tell me why this is allowed.


    Are you worried that the picture of the kid will be lifted for use by a pedophile? I don't understand what you are concerned about, maybe more specifics are needed.

    I see nothing wrong with it. A profile is their little piece of the internet and some people use it to share the things that are most important to them...if that happens to be kid or baby, that's great. I can think of far worse things to have to see.

    Oh, are monkeys and cats off limits...I'm in trouble then icon_razz.gif

    Come on now, with a picture like this from my childhood, how could I not put it in my profile?

    Oh how I love that my parents had a good enough sense of humor to take that picture.

    It's their business, they can do whatever they want to their profile. It's their business to share, not ours to tell them what not to put into their profile.

    What do you think he was insinuating then? What do you think his message meant?

    It doesn't bother me, probably because when I see a child my brain doesn't turn to sex.

    I like profiles and profile pictures that show a little bit of a poster's personality. I think it's cool to see family pics, friend pics, activity pics, etc. Somebody's always gonna overthink things anyway, so why bother trying to please everybody. If something is truly inappropriate, RJ will take care of it in the photo screening process.

    The OP created this topic 10 minutes after posting this on another topic:

    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/456061/

    wannatalkaboutme saidWell, not that I do not cruise on here quite a bit, but sometimes it just freaks me out and I just block that person. I especially HATE it when some IDIOT will put a photo of a young boy or baby on here.
    Are there not enough kiddie porn wierdos out there anyway.
    They have no business on here looking for REAL guys with a real interest in fitness and well to be frank meeting other like minded guys.
    Sorry to ramble, but the answer to the question is: BLOCK!!!icon_evil.gificon_twisted.gif

    He is certainly not referring to the fact that realjock is a hookup site!!!

    I'll agree...I miss read the last part on his posting (my bad!)...but the first few comments where saying about how he was insinuating that realjock was a hookup site!

    i just think its weird that the OP's mind immediately jumps to dark and inappropriate things when he sees pics of kids....... and is thus so offended by their presence.... we always see in others what we resent in ourselves.

    he seems to be alone in this, thank god..
