There is going to be a debate at 8:00pm SL time and the topic is Is it appropriate to be a child avatar on SL? I don’t think it’s appropriate at all to play a child avatar in Second Life, even in role playing situations; this is just one of those taboo things I think Linden Labs should just outright outlaw. I have seen some freaky stuff in Second Life, some things you just want to take your brain out and scrub it down real good, so I know there are probably some situations where child avatars are being used in ways that are illegal in real life, so, if there is a chance that someone could see something bad going on with a kid, why even take the chance that it could happen?

I think I have read more bad stuff about people being worried about animal avatars than I have child avatars, and there has been talk about banning bestiality in Second Life because it is illegal in many states, while others think it’s okay since there is no real animal involved. Check out these images of stuff that has been going on in Second Life with animal avatars and human avatars, Animal Love in Second Life Warning: NSFW! But, I guess it all comes down to what you believe, and I don’t believe I want to even have the chance of seeing some adult avatar doing anything to a child avatar. Nuff said.

I will probably check this out, at least there will be someone thrown to the pit at the end. ;)
