No, but feel free to change it to something similar after a week.

If you want to conduct a poll, go back to your original post and click on "edit" in the top right corner. You'll see how you can add a poll towards the bottom of the new screen. Alternatively, check out the FAQ at the top of any Forum page.

I feel offended by the fact that I don't know who that girl is.

I voted yes, not because I think it's offensive, but because I think it's stupid and I think you should change it.

Would you have voted the same if it was, for example, Kiefer Sutherland? (Though it would have been rather strange to see him in that lingerie)

No, it wouldn't have been the same. As long as they're not completely explicit, offensive, or tasteless, I don't mind if we have avatars of celebrities or movies; that's fair game. This however, appears to be some poor girl who videotaped herself and the schmoe who got a hold of these pictures made an animation out of them. Unless that girl is you, crewhill (in which case it'd be disturbing on a whole other level), it's wrong and tasteless.

I can't believe I have to explain why it's tasteless.

I voted yes because it's something belonging to the Outrageously Sexist Boys Thread and that there is no connection whatsoever with movies. Except porn.

And if there are no close-ups, it's not worthy.




I wish I could make my Brad dance like that to make Sheila throw up in her mouth a little.

I have to disagree with you on that. It's yours to say if something is tasteless.
You can say that it's not your taste, and I'll back you up.

It was a fair question, and I responded honestly.

I just think we can stick to putting stuff like that avatar in the Sexist threads, like Toto suggested. If you want to have a dancing Jessica Alba from Sin City, I wouldn't mind one bit.

I don't think your avatar is offesnive, crewhill. I do, however, think that it is inappropriate. To name but one reason: a large number of FWers look at the site at their workplace or other semipublic and public venues. It is unfair on them to be exposed to the scorn of their environment because of an unexpected moving image of a highly sexual nature flashing up on their screens through no fault of their own.
Your asking our opinion on whether your avatar is acceptable or not, however, is commendable.

Well, it doesn't really matter if anyone else considers it offensive or not, there are already five "yes" votes. I seem to recall people swapping out pictures of spiders for less than that.

He was glad to get it.
