9. Bomb threat - disarm, dismantle, or otherwise make useless an explosive device
10. Deal with a retired supervillain on their death bed - I used this in a roleplay story to pass on powers from the supervillain to a superhero, giving them new, unwanted powers. Go to Comment
I like this one. A power that seems pretty minor, but depending on how easily usable it is, it could be incredibly powerful in a fight. Switching places with someone can really mess them up, put them out of position, facing the wrong way, all sorts of trouble. Go to Comment
"The potential to offend outweighs the utility" That is a slippery slope. After all it is part the speculative genre to push the envelope to an extreme so that the middle can be re-evaluated. I agree it was a tasteless and crass post, but not without merit. Maybe Censorship makes me a little sad....
I def see your point, this one I might consider expanding at some point, actually see a ton of variations and depth I could go into. If there is enough interest and nobody gets pissed about it. Go to Comment
rather than cause an incedent I have pulled this. First off I agree that this was a very poor choice for a 100 word, I am very impulsive and sometimes act before I think. I don't think it was in poor taste, it was in the wrong format (I doubt I will re-do this longer thou).
I am the very last person to want to offend or cause trouble, just not in my nature.As to cencorship, let's face it, we are all here to have fun, a big debate on a sub-par sub is does not really fit in w/ how I want to be percived here..Let's put this out in the trash and be done with it.

Aramax, I challenged this one. If you feel the need to make a comment preemptively defending the sub, that should tell you something. The potential here to offend outweighs any utility. This is something that could be pursued, but it needs to be handled to care and sensitivity, and I'm sorry, but that didn't happen here.
In addition, there's two other issues which were not challenge-worthy, but which I think deserve mention.
First, this isn't a 100 word sub; it's a stub. I haven't had a problem with your short format before this, but an idea touching on such a topic deserves more thought and consideration than trying to fit it in such a short word count.
Second, run this through spell check and grammar, or have someone proofread it. I typo like mad and I know it, so I don't expect perfection, But some effort to clean up a post would be nice. Go to Comment
I like the political aspects of it.
If you want to rewrite here are my two cents: address the solutions to reproduction which can be complicated in a mostly gay+lesbian world.
Also "through education, brainwashing and media" doesn't work because it's genetic and what you mentioned wouldn't work no matter how hard they tried. Try to go with a retrovirus(with a mysterious origin) getting out of control, you don't see the effects until the next generation when it's too late. Now you got an interesting situation on your hand. Go to Comment
4/5 A very intrerresting idea, but why do you need to hit it three times with the same attack? I guess there is some bigger reason than that it is harder to fight now, but I can't figure it out. Go to Comment
