And the picture is...

Posted by Partlycloudy on July 11, 2014, at 8:53:19

Alice from "Alice in Wonderland" playing with her cat, Dinah? Can't name the illustrator, but might be from the original book.
Well? And if so, interesting choice.

Just a guess. There have been features in the news about the various illustrations of this famous book. It looks like a corner of a cat's head, and the girl might be playing with it... I don't know, it's a guess.

Looks like Mao. But never saw a pic of him smiling. It's all quite disturbing...for me.

What's with all the nudity & a Swastika? I don't understand. This is a mental health board? Phillipa

Swastikas? I hadn't seen that. Hopefully an optical illusion.

I wish for some beautiful kids or animals or nature or anything that lifts up....but that's me.

Phillipa,
You wrote,[...I don't understand...].
Let there be no misunderstanding here. Mr Hsiung says n his TOS that he does what in hi thinking will be god for this community as a whole. And more than that, he asks readers to try to trust him.
The aspect of {doing what will be good for the community as a whole has ancient precedence going back to the Greeks that killed all the new born children that they thought would not be good for their state as a whole (infanticide). With tha type of thinking, a country can have slavery,by saying that slavery will be good for the country as a whole. And a country can commit genocide by the same type of thinking and the leaders said {trust me}. The historical record shows what happened as the citizens turned a blind eye to much. They trusted what was a hope that killing millions of people would improve the country. And those that objected were murdered or deported.
The European fascists used the motto {the common good} and also the laws stated that one could not publically say or print anything that was not {conducive to the national welfare}. So this is nothing new, some of the words are analogous and changed, but the concept is the same.
When the swastika is displayed, it could be an insult to Jews in particular for it to be displayed. The swastika in a mental health community delivered to the readers via a web site by Mr. Hsiung and his deputies that support him, says volumes. It is refreshing to see that at least one member here objects to it being displayed by Mr. Hsiung here, and I do not think that clothing the swastika in the language of art immunizes Mr. Hsiung for displaying it. For his own rule is not to post {anything} about Nazis. That is a very broad prohibition and includes {anything} that could conjure up Nazis.
But be it as it may be, the aim of this community can be plainly seen.
Lou

Click on the link that was provided by Dr Bob and the art when one scrolls through shows what to me is swastika. I showed my husband earlier today and asked him if it was and he felt it was also. Phillipa

I can't believe I missed the p*nis palm tree picture of the man looking up at the top of the tree. The tree grew from the man's one groin area P*nis. I do not understand why this is posted here. If I wanted what is printed under some of the pistures as pornographic I would not have accessed this link. Phillipa

Some of the art on the pages I linked to may upset some Babblers.

I don't understand why you would have linked to these pictures. Dr Bob pornography here? I do feel I strongly feel it's in appropriate and since you are the administrator of the site you can remove this like. And to post a trigger warning I feel brings more attention to the link in question. Phillipa

PC asked what the picture was, so I posted links to a couple pages that identified it, showed the whole work, and discussed it.

Mr. Hsiung,
You wrote, [....PC asked what the picture was (so that is the reason that I posted the link)...].
Now the crux of the matter here is if a reply can be uncivil and if the content of the link is or is not considered by you as civil or not. For your rule is to not post language that could offend others as being vulgar. Language can be extended from being just words, to be also pictures. The displaying of a swastika, although not a word, conveys what language could convey in words.
The depiction of nude women can be considered to be vulgar by advocacy groups for women's dignity and by religious groups to uphold the dignity of women.
The issues here extend beyond just your posting of the link. For if your rule can have an excuse to be broken, then your excuse could be seen as a mockery of your rules to not post what could lead one to feel put down or accused and to not post language that could offend others as being vulgar. Language does not have to be just in words, for symbols and pictures could convey what words could.
Then there is the aspect of if you can post links to offending content, and others can not. And there the aspect of if what is posted is a reply, then offensive content can be posted. But replies have to be civil, and there can not be used the excuse that the uncivil content is a reply which makes it civil, for in a discussion, most of the posts can be replies.
I am asking that you immediately delete the link to the pictures, for if you wanted to reply to the poster, that could be done without posting the link by citing work of the painter for PC to do a search about on PC's own without posting the pictures here.
Phillipa has a rational basis for objecting to you posting the link. This is because you have sanctioned vulgar words used here. Vulgar is vulgar regardless what form it is presented.
Lou Pilder

Did you screen the pictures before posting the link. I personally think it was okay if you had posted a name of the artist and let PC explore. I am sure you know what that link showed is not the type of material for a mental health forum. I'm disappointed in you. And did you as of yet remove the picture link you posted I haven't looked as per your instructions in the past If one finds something or knows something they personally don't want access you. Didn't you say don't read it. Look in this case? Phillipa

Still there it's absurd in my opinion and I'm guessing a lot of others. Should one post a notification to go to read this post and click on the link on another board? Phillipa
