So, is this what uncharted deems even remotely acceptable for posting on it's labor activist website? Yes, I'm referring to the Image of non-consensual sexual assault called rape.

I have written days ago to the moderator and editor of uncharted.ca with my concerns, however as of yet I've received no response.

I find it disgusting and immensely offensive that this graphic image depicting a violent act of forcible sexual assault and degradation has been posted on this website.

Would an image of a women being forcibly raped and/or sodomized be ok posted here as well?

How horribly insensitive might this be to any victims of sexual assault who read the posts on this website?


Not too cool, IMO.

Thanks for the input Lynda P. I too found the image disturbing. However, I also understand it wasn't so much the actual image but the inferences we make. Offence is most often taken as opposed to given - what we see or don't see is up to each of us, ends up to be our own responsibility.

That said - I took the easy way out here and the image is now behind a link - folks can choose to click on it or not to click on it - I hope problem solved.

My apologies to Lynda P or anyone else who was offended by my post.

My intent was not to offend , but bring to attention the horrific behavior of an UFCW president who is taking down $300,000 a year of hard working dues paying members dollars and this is his behavior and our UFCW International Union seems to be ok with that because he's still employed. Lynda as a long time UFCW member how would you feel if you found out your dues dollars were being used to solicit prostitution?

What I do find disturbing Lynda P is the fact that you had “no comments” about this UFCW presidents bad behavior but were so disturbed by my post.

That said… again my apologies if you were offended.

ed=superfluous quotes - no need to drag the entire discussion along with a response.

I take full responsibility for what I saw, which was an individual being sodomized/raped/sexually assaulted.

I interpreted it as a graphic depiction of a crime of violence, used to exert power and control over the man in anguish who was enduring the violation of his body and soul.

My complaint was not aimed at an individual who posted it. Whatever one finds amusing, that's their thing.

My complaint was that the image was extremely offensive and did not, in my thinking, fit in with the unlawful LOMAX consensualsexual escapades.

Yeah, of course, I'm disgusted by my dues money being spent to support creeps like that.
Who wouldn't be? Kind of ridiculous to think I'm all for that. Really...??

Gotta love the way I state my feelings, and some here immediately jump down my throat and assume that the LOMAX creep isn't disgusting to me. I see how things are here.

Hey Sharyn, thanks bunches for moving the sodomy/rape pic for those who wish to enjoy it and the male rape scene link in another thread.

free speech is the whole thing, but there are posting policies in place here on uncharted ...

"No pornographic, sexually offensive, sexually explicit, or objectifying material. Doesn't get any simpler than that."
