is it controversial to mention smoking?I just this moment commented on a picture of two nude girls with legs wide apart smoking different pipes (big fancy paraphernalia type)
The exact phrasing was
"but glamorizing smoking in any way with young people was outlawed for advertisers years ago... maybe that's a good rule to follow even for personal hobbyist pictures too- whatever additives or fancy pipes, it's still a pretty unhealthy activity. the only significant cause of heart disease in women under 40 and implicated in many cancers. I have personal family experience of the results, which can be pretty horrible. looks so harmless and yet can be devastating to lives down the line"
I thought it was a straightforward comment about smoking. But I got an immediate reply
"that sort of comment well get you blocked" and being blocked.
It's as if some sensitive person feels you're not allowed to mention smoking as a dangerous activity that kills? someone really really sensitive about smoking? Is it acceptable
