Hi Wolfhome Community!

The administration has recently discussed the possibility of changing our current nipple rule, but we would like to hear your thoughts on the matter. Please let us know by posting your thoughts below and voting on the poll. Please note that the option to allow female nipples is not a possibility at this time and will not be considered. They are, however, welcome in the Mature Gallery section (you must be 18+ to request access from an Alpha).

Please remember to keep the discussion constructive and respectful, otherwise, we may need to consider disallowing discussion and only allow voting via the polls.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing your opinions!

The rule change (reverting back to how the rule used to be before the rule change a couple years ago) would mean that due to how legal avenues and society views nipples, any nipples on breasts that are not flat and nipples on female-identifying characters are not allowed. Nipples on flat chests belonging to non-female identifying characters are fine. Non-female characters with breasts that are not flat cannot have nipples showing. As a pre-surgery trans man myself, I understand why this is frustrating - but sadly that's how society treats nipples. Wolfhome being a PG-13 site cannot LEGALLY allow female nipples or nipples on breasts that are not flat. That's why we're making it so any not-flat breasts cannot have nipples as well.
We are totally okay with rewording the rule as well so that it's more like the above ^ as being trans myself I see where you're coming from and I hope this clarifies!

For example, it would be much like how it is now legally in real life if the rule is revised - this is a personal example since it's easiest for me to write out but - a post-top surgery afab trans person can go out in public on a beach for example topless, however, a pre-top surgery afab trans person cannot.

This rule not only applies to personal OCs, but also gifs, pictures, etc. that may be linked or posted on the forums or chat.

As we stated in the past, we were always open to reviewing this rule again in the future. A good portion of the userbase has made it clear that they're unhappy with the way the current rule stands, which is why we wanted to bring it up for the first OFFICIAL administration-hosted nipple rule revision since the official rule was put into place at the end of 2016! We want to make sure that we're listening to the userbase and taking into account what people think about our current rules and rule changes.

Why does this keep popping up? I feel like this is the 3rd or so time that this has been voted on. Not everyone is going to be happy with the decision but at least keep it consistent

This shouldn't even be a topic of discussion anymore. If you're not going to allow nipples on female-bodied characters, then it's not fair to allow them on male-bodied characters.

Either both or none, it's fair that way.

honestly both should be allowed, especially considering that the concept in general is not only sexist but transphobic; if the rule was changed, would trans men be considered women since they're afab (assigned fem. at birth) and afab nipples are really what's being censored, not just "female"?

I'm just going to come clean and say I voted to allow male nipples last time this was brought up, and voted to allow them again this time around. I'm well aware this whole topic originated as an idea of equality between the genders, but let's look at the larger picture instead of just Wolfhome as an isolated institution...

Wolfhome is an American site, bound by American laws...and under those laws male and female nipples simply aren't equal. Now, I'm not going to have the discussion about whether or not that's fair or just, it's simply the current circumstances. I'm sure it could be argued that banning all nipples helps make Wolfhome a more equal place...but from my point of view, all it's really doing is punishing people who frankly has no say on the current laws Wolfhome operates under.

I really don't see the point in forcing this aditional rule-set onto Wolfhome, for the sake of one of the possible takes on equality. Do you think it's unfair that female nipples aren't allowed? Well, nothing is stopping you from not having poses with male nipples either then. You get to support your cause, and people who aren't really interested get to use their male-nipple infested poses in peace...win/win?

soooo we can't have female nipples but say there was a male who had moobs...so basically two boobs that look the same, two nipples that look the same but one's banned? what's up w that?

i understand that this is an obscure chatsite but that doesn't mean its ok to be part of the problem. can we at least try to act like women are equal

Ya'll can't have female nipples on this furry site no matter how unfair it is(because yes, it's hella unfair, I agree), due to legal issues that would lead to site shutdowns and lawsuits. The opinions/wants of everyone, genuinely don't have a say in that part since it's a law that restricts it. The only part we do have a say in, is to allow male nipples, or none at all, that's it, that's all we get. Pick one.

Ok I love titties I love women I drink my respect and validate women juice every day and I want a world where women can whip their titties out
but I've accepted that wolfhome isnt the place where I can push this change without there being a lot more issues that it cant sustain because it's so small so YES WOMEN ARE EQUAL AND DESERVE TO LET THE TATAS FLY but we gotta fight that with society not wolfhome, then maybe we can have tatas here

I kinda don't see the need to have nipples on a chatsite to begin with. That's just my personal opinion though.
