Why is every topic about sexuality

I believe it started because someone (quite possibly a troll, though not necessarily) with zero consideration for private matters decided to start the first topic about sexuality which I think, was inappropriately asking everyone what their orientation was.

It spiralled out of control from there.


Hi, you must be new to the Pokemon boards on GameFaqs. This is a topic that gets brought up at least 5 times a week on slow weeks.


Not new, been posting here for ages. This is the first Pokemon board to be contaminated by perversion the entire time I have been posting here.

Not once have I seen such immaturity on the other Pokemon boards.

There is a remote chance that perverted posts on the other boards were always pushed to the later pages whenever I was on.


Did you not see the endless topics about Elesa in gen V? People could not get past sexuality.

Forgot about what I saw on the Gen V boards for a moment.

I ignored those mainly due to the needless focus on one particular character. And of course there was the occasional dolt who posted something obviously perverted. But it wasn't as bad as this.

It's as if some people don't have anything better to do than to clog a message board for a game with children as the base target audience with immature and insensitive perversions.
Yes, it's Japanese in origin and the adult players are somewhat acknowledged, but that does not warrant needlessly sexualising it on a message board.

That's funny because i've never seen you on the numerous "How old are you?" topics saying the same thing. Last time I check someone's age is a private matter as well. And what about "Are you a girl or a boy?"

Then you are relatively new....or oblivious because there has always several topics on the Pokemon Black and White/2 boards. I have been posting on the pokemon boards since the Ruby boards and I have seen the same, if not "worse" from those boards up until now.

Yes it has. Again, you are either new, or unaware. This topic has always come up one way or another in the past pokemon boards The game maybe targeted at children but to post on these boards you have to be 13; a teenager.

Those topics are inappropriate and you should be ignoring them like I (at least try to).

No to both, has it ever crossed your mind that I would be ignoring such immaturity and then forgetting I ever saw it because it was unimportant?

Not new or unaware. -see above-

Anyone of sense knows that anyone can set up an account on GameFAQs and they don't exactly verify your age in any reasonable manner. Not to mention even if they did, 13 year olds are still to young to be exposed to overly sexualised discussion.

Its because there is no new news out yet, so people have nothing to do other than troll/make controversial topics.
#19Second_ChancesPosted 1/18/2013 6:44:16 PM
1) It's generally an easy topic to set people off on.
2) Teenagers and their hormones.
3) Because humans just work that way: http://i.imgur.com/JOVKjt4.jpg (All text, but probably NSFW)
4) Because this is the internet, you really shouldn't be surprised.
