Is this a rule addition, change, or removal:
Suggested Rule Text:
Any form of roleplay centred around the idea or action of rape, either ERP (erotic RolePlay), GrossRP or Medical RP will result in a server punishment. any individual (perpetrator) deemed to have actively and willfully engaged in a rape roleplay scene will be issues a server punishment even if OOC consent is given by all parties involved.
Comments, threats, rumours and fantasies regarding Rape IC would fall under the existing sexual harrasment rule and require parties to stop said comments if told OOCly.
What are the benefits of this rule:
While roleplay is about engaging in ones ultimate fantasies there should be a line drawn somewhere in the sand. This server has had many Rape roleplay scenes undertaken in it, many with OOC consent and some without however the issue is that sometimes these actions are taken out of context and can lead to OOC toxicity as well as general comfortability issues with people involved in said RP.
The benefit of this rule is that it would take an item off the table and potential stop any comfortability issues in the future.
What are the negatives of this rule change, addition, or removal:
Honestly the negative to this rule that i could see would be the loss of some decent thought out RP, I'm not going to sugar coat it but from a solely RP perspective there is some benefit to these scenes much like in movies or TV however the issue is that given the age demographic of the server as well as the general maturity i believe that such a roleplay could not be performed with respect or a high enough standard.
I confirmed that I have properly thought about this rule amendment. I also confirm that I've discussed this rule amendment with others. I also confirm I've checked the suggestion section before previously posting this rule suggestion and understand that I will receive a warning for posting a duplicate suggestion.
