Of course it`s male-dominated. And why not? It`s a male dominted subject. War and war aircraft. Males ever since the beginning have warred and dominated it with females making up a very small percentage of the number. It`s literally instinctive that any war-like theme will be male-dominated. That don`t mean females can`t be in there too sometimes, it`s just way less likely to happen and even less likely that they`ll actually risk their lives to fight until dead.


Females have their own fem-dominated areas.


And the problem with that? Nothing.

As you know... men concentrate on the 'end-piece', which is why they know where they're going.

Women conecentrate on 'all-over' which is why they can cover a lot of area in no-time, but it always ends up at one point. This is where the story starts for men and ends for women.... Now this sounds good but has me puzzled http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

You should try polling the Fragdolls for a reason, I've tried to poll them many times but have not had any success so far. Another thing that confuses me about FragDolls is that there isn't actually any fragging in the Sims series http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif

You have the right to return it as was....it does not make you a nazi....it's just a part of history....if you could see the rudder in my sig, there is the same symbol there...as it was 60+ years ago...just history

DuxCorvan
10-07-2006, 09:05 AM
Kalle, you know swastikas are a sensitive matter, specially in some countries. It is an ancient symbol, and it doesn't identify you as a nazi at all, but, since their meaning got corrupted through its usage as an identity logo by the nazis, you should be prudent about using them as an avatar or sig, because they could be easily misinterpreted (specially if depicted on a nazi-time Iron Cross), and they would get you into trouble.

@SlipBall: A swastika is not the same on a WW2 german airplane tail pic or skin than on a forum avatar. I play Il-2 with swastikas activated. It's more immersive and real, but... I wouldn't use it as my avatar, as I wouldn't put one in my shirt and take the bus.

Someone's avatar is, after all, like a nick, this is, something that defines our concealed real identity in some way. Some time ago, there was a guy around here who had "Adolf Hitler" as his nick. While he surely found it to be very funny, many people did not.

That swastika-free Iron Cross looks way more innocent and fits better with the spirit of a WW2 forum -even if less historical. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I dont know I could be wrong but to me that avatar is a black Iron Cross oh never mind I just saw the tiny swastika and fools that try to ignore history or say that dont like it because it reminds them of something unpleasant are destined to shut there eyes and let it happen again

It's really unfair of feminists to try and take that awy, all naturally while they're setting up their OWN private little things. Naturally once in, then they force such change that in the end it is nothing like it was and often perrishes.

A bit of balance goes a long way....and gives you a lot of ammunition when you want it for yourself.

are you kidding me?.......EVERY nationality, EVERY culture, EVERY person has something, be it a symbol, picture, whatever that they find offensive......Get over it......By your standard we should not have German planes in the sim because though they might not be seen on the skins they did indeed at one time have swastica's on them.

Perhaps if you didn't run around looking for them, you wouldn't find them.

general_kalle has been generous enough in changing it once, more then generous if you ask me. Back off http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Why do you care?......What is one reason that you really care, are offended, from personal direct experience that now when you see one you personally shudder in anxiety?

Or are you simply trying to impose your beliefs and wants on others just as the political group you claim to be offended by did?

yup, there is definately a small swastika in the middle of that iron cross avatar.

do the rules of this ubb allow for swastikas in personal avitars ?

I go back to my earlier sarcasm....

Why are people moaning about the 'invisible but not really' swastika when there is a swastika clearly visible on the aircraft tail in the other sig?

Is this because the one on the aircraft is somehow representing history? If so, why is the one within the cross not some kind of historical representation?

Kalle, you know swastikas are a sensitive matter, specially in some countries. It is an ancient symbol, and it doesn't identify you as a nazi at all, but, since their meaning got corrupted through its usage as an identity logo by the nazis, you should be prudent about using them as an avatar or sig, because they could be easily misinterpreted (specially if depicted on a nazi-time Iron Cross), and they would get you into trouble.

@SlipBall: A swastika is not the same on a WW2 german airplane tail pic or skin than on a forum avatar. I play Il-2 with swastikas activated. It's more immersive and real, but... I wouldn't use it as my avatar, as I wouldn't put one in my shirt and take the bus.

Someone's avatar is, after all, like a nick, this is, something that defines our concealed real identity in some way. Some time ago, there was a guy around here who had "Adolf Hitler" as his nick. While he surely found it to be very funny, many people did not.

That swastika-free Iron Cross looks way more innocent and fits better with the spirit of a WW2 forum -even if less historical. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Thanks a lot DuxCorvan

That comment was directed at you. It was directed at the geezer who posted just before me.

Having said that, I wonder if people would be offended if kalle just used the tail fin of an aircraft as his avatar but 'zoomed in' so you could not immediately tell that is was a tail fin http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I think you guys misunderstood me. I said, and I repeat, that I fly LW planes with swastika on. It's how it was, and yes, it's history. I'd be pi$sed off if they disabled that option, because I'd feel it as over the top in PC politics. The same goes for model kits, I once found very stupid to open the box and find that the swastikas had been removed from a Japanese kit because the thing was to be sold in Europe.

For the same reason, it's completely logical and expected to have swastikas, SS logos and stuff in a WW2 or III Reich movie, or in a 'disguise' reunion of historical recreation. I ENCOURAGE to use those symbols when it comes to simulate or recreate a part of history.

But an avatar is a completely different thing:

1) An Iron Cross is itself a symbol. Without a swastika is just a honorable German military symbol. But with the swastika is a despicable nazi military symbol.

2) Avatars and nicks have the same function in a forum. To identify a member. When you choose an offending symbol as avatar, is the same than choosing an offending nick to appear in a forum.

To clarify it:

We all know that the Allied 'contracted' the word Japanese as 'J*p' in WW2. I'd expect to hear the word once and again in a WW2 movie or in a WW2 sim, since it is a recreation of historical reality, and nobody should take offence of that. We also know that the Dam Busters mission guys had a dog called 'Ni***r'. In a movie, I'd find OK to habe the dog called that way -though I admit it would be a risky and controversial decision.

But now, imagine, that instead of 'Dux Corvan', I use 'F*ck*ng J*p' or 'Ni***r the Dog' as a nickname for this forum.

The mods would bite my carotid arterias off, and with good reason. It would be a BAD election, and it doesn't matter how historical a name it would be.

Please, keep swastikas in LW planes. But, please, don't use them ON YOU. To have a swastika in an avatar is almost the same than WEARING it in your lapel.

And no, I'm not a PC nazi, nor have I anything against swastika -the ancient universal sun symbol. But I wouldn't buy anything that could be interpreted -even erroneously- as nazi flag waving.

And if you still think that reality justifies any avatar, then why not using a pic of our pr*ck as avatar, mmm? It exists, no? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
