How does a foot fetish become illicit in a general point of view?… a picture of bared feet was grounds for many profiles being deleted from the popular community site.
We have discovered that the root cause was, so called ‘christian’ profile holders, making application to myspace officials to have the fetishists removed. A rampant campaign has been started by Christian organizations to flood myspage, tagworld and other community sites with complaints against individuals, who are subsequently removed from the ‘community run’ sites.
Aware of the flood of complaints, Myspace has since implemented a review section, where individuals may accept or reject friend requests. By rejecting a friend request, an individual can prevent spam, inappropriate review, and complaints against them selves, because MySpace see’s the rejection as a proactive form of preventing people who would otherwise disagree on topics or be offensive to one another, from linking their profiles.
Below is an actual letter sent out by Bondage-Radio to a potential ‘Friend’.
Thank you for your request to be added to our friends list on MySpace.com.
Your profile clearly indicated that you are a ‘Christian’ Organization in the recording industry.
As a precaution, in the genre that Bondage-Radio selects as it’s primary audience, the Fetish, BDSM, independent, grunge, alternative lifestyle areas, we do review all friends applications and reject requests based on set criteria.
These criteria all tie in with our Safe, Sane, Consensual position on all lifestyles.
Although we do appreciate your request, we think it would be not in keeping with the core beliefs of our listeners and fans to add you to our friends list.
Many of our listeners and fans are predisposed to an anti-establishment, anti-Christian, independent point of view. Most would base that point of view on personal experience with so called Christian values and ideals that have fallen far short of the fair, equitable and tolerant facade that Christian organizations put forth to the public.
In practice these same organizations discriminate, devalue and reject individuals because of one feigned failure or another, leaving a whole culture (which is referred to with the discriminative term as a ‘sub’ culture) without support or infrastructure.
We are sure that in future applications we will no doubt maintain these criteria, values and beliefs, therefore; there is no need for you to reapply.
May we suggest that your efforts may be better spent researching those people and organizations, with whom you may have more in common. We note that so called ‘Christian’ radio stations out number ‘Fetish’ and ‘Adult’ radio stations by a margin of over 1000 to 1.
If you feel that this evaluation has been overly harsh or in some way discriminatory, may we politely suggest you look over you own core beliefs and reevaluate the way you treat others, before commenting on others’ values.
Please feel free to comment on this letter, also be advised, we already have.
