Idea behind Cats[edit]

The Idea was a ?Cascade? with pictures for several occasions

  • Category:Same-sex couples (normal people, mostly clothed)
  • Category:Same-sex erotic (the erotic touch, unclothed, in bed ... but not sex)
    • Category:Gay erotic
    • Category:Lesbian erotic
  • Category:Same-sex sexuality (Sex)
    • Category:Gay sex
    • Category:Lesbic sex

  • There was cogitations for substitution of gay and lesbian to Same-sex (male/female) because the wide range of time. In old time there was no concept like gay or lesbian. But only with Bot or somthing.
  • For the future male and female groups for "Same-sex couples". (to beginning there was only a few pictures)
  • I was thinking to set "erotic" and "sex" as subcategory of "couple". Also because there is now "marrige".
  • All categorys were for pictures and art.

  • Category:Same-sex couples
    • Category:Same-sex erotic
      • Category:Same-sex erotic male
      • Category:Same-sex erotic female
    • Category:Same-sex sexuality
      • Category:Same-sex sexuality male
      • Category:Same-sex sexuality female

Point taken... (I'm not a big fan of the terms LGBT or gay myself, but was trying to satisfy both viewpoints (and avoid having to look in 3 different places for pics) by placing identical categories in category "Homosexuality" and category "LGBT". Homosexuality as a category would leave out Homoerotic though, so I guess same-sex is a better solution. I tried to fix the problem with the art categories you mentioned. (Renaming LGBT art to Same-sex art, and also placing it the Art category)

Maybe I went a little overboard in trying to sort out the root category pictures into belonging to more specific categories, but LGBT, Gay, and Homosexuality had become giant dumping grounds for pictures (Sometimes appropriately categorized, sometimes not), and in addition you had to search three different categories (LGBT, Homosexuality, Gay) to look through three different pools of pictures. With the current category scheme, LGBT and Homosexuality both point to the same exact sub-categories, and have a minimum of pictures in each's root category.

I agree that same-sex is the most neutral and accurate label, especially in artworks and in content pre-dating the labels Gay or LGBT.

i'll try to be less like a bull in a china shop in the future -- Caveman80 22:10, 7 June 2008 (UTC)
