Talk:Child advocate (dictionary)

From BoyWiki

This article is turning out great. However I question the NPOVity of some of the latest changes. There's some very loaded terms like "crusade" and "knee-jerk reactionaries" in there. It all depends on what BoyWiki means with a neutral point of view. It's a wiki for boylovers, not Johnny Straight-clown, so I guess in that respect all is well, but I think we should keep language in mind for the Dictionary and Encyclopedia categories.

  • Yes, I think it should be neutral as well, since what we're defining has meaning outside the BL community. Although we should describe the POV of those BLs in reaction to the behavior of some CAs, that should only come after a neutral description of who they are. One problem I have with the common use of the term CA at BoyChat is that nobody seems to acknowledge its true definition - only its twisted use by what may be a minority of CAs for all I know. I think it should be OK to describe the bias of some BLs, but not write with such a bias. --The playful mind 01:11, 15 September 2005 (EDT)

I changed a few more things that I hope made it more neutral. I also changed the masculine references to CAs ("he") to something gender-neutral ("they"). --Ozymandias 14 January 2006
