Why is being "gay" considered a political/social issue on these forums? I want to bring to attention this article I posted on the forums. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1726173 This topic was very quickly moved to the PRSI areas of the forums. And I am asking why this was. To compare we have these previous MacRumor articles: Apple Leaps to #6 in Latest Fortune 500 Rankings http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1579209 Steve Jobs Ranked World's 110th Richest Person With Net Worth of $8.3 Billion http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1113366 Both are old articles. And both are a number in a list. #6 in 500 and #110. They sit in the general article section. But take a list of 50 people (very similar to the above 2 lists) and add one word "gay" and almost instantly it becomes PRSI material. Why is this? How is "gay", PRSI material but straight/heterosexual lists or lists where sexuality is not even mentioned not moved to PRSI. Being gay is no different to being straight in response tot he topic I am writing now. Gay people deserve to be treated the same as straight people. Does someone on the staff here have an issue with the word "gay". Also there have been mentions about topics getting out of hand because of the word "gay". I don't see this as a valid reason to move the topic to PRSI. The great moderation team here would have no issue with moderating the posts there and/or cleaning up the topic if necessary. The topic is not political, religious and touches on no social issues apart from similar ones that other lists (not in PRSI) touch on. So I would like to know why the staff here consider the word "gay" deserving to be in the PRSI area?
