Babies can't possibly be getting included of their own volition.

Therefore, it is wrong to include babies.

If you're using the shrine as a sell point for program directors, I don't think many stations are really fighting to dominate the under-2 female demographic. They don't buy much, and "Bababababababa pbbbbbbt!" isn't a very thought-provoking call-in topic.

Then again, wasn't it Patrick Henry who said, "I regret that I have but one diaper to soil for my country"?  No, wait, I think that was Strom Thurmond.  Never mind.

babies are cute.  why would anyone care?  They look and they see a baby and they go.  "ahhhhh look at the cute baby'   they certainly do not go one and on about how babies are not actually listening and all that other bullshit. 

Do not generalize the opinion that babies are cute.  I do not find babies cute in the slightest, and when I see one, my first thought is "OH GOD PLEASE DON'T SCREAM" if it's currently quiet, or if it's screaming I think "PLEASE STOP SCREAMING YOU LITTLE BLOB!".  I know I'm out of the ordinary on that one, but I also know I'm not alone.

No TNA shots from those under 18 please.
Do you also say "for all intensive purposes" or "all tolled"?  Just curious. 

He probably thinks TNA stands for Totally Nude Attributes or something.

I have to agree with this.




Although, in the ancap world, there could be reasons people might want to exhibit photos of their babies. 

Let the market decide.

I don't think you stand to lose much of your demographic prowess by including babies. I may be wrong, but I know that if I were to advertise through FTL, I'd be looking for who was listening, and baby pictures don't invalidate adult pictures.

Maybe you could pick up someone trying to reach mothers or parents. If you allow baby girls in the shrine, it'd catch those ad bucks without having to add an all-babies FTL shrine (as adorable and grotesque as that would be).

Including girl-babies is beyond the scope of intent for the shrine, but it seems like a "no harm, no foul" situation to me. Maybe you could just incentivize adult contributions ever so slightly.

Also, encourage nudity - it's nice to see cute babies and floppy saddlebags in one convenient location.

Edit: "Flopp E. Saddlebags" is my new Drag name.

I think that allowing babies to be in the shrine harbors motives to dress boy babies up like girls and possibly causing severe mental problems for the child in the future. I think they should shut the entire website down if this kind of garbage continues. Ban the babies now!
Speaking of the shrine if I dress up like a lady will you let me post my pictures?
