There are so many current events it seems logical to post them in the "Current Events" forum. However the intention of this forum was as a place to put those stories that don't really have a home. Hence the "non-controversial" part. I know it can be frustrating to put work and thought into a thread or post only to have it deleted. So i'm putting together a list of topics and where to post about them. If there is a topic I haven't mentioned please DM me and I'll add it to the list.

Topics for the Politics-other-controversies forum
(for new members: The Politics/other controversies forum is very busy. Before posting a topic in there it is best to do a quick search to see if it's already being discussed.)

Law enforcement ethics
Police shootings
Racial topics
LGBTQ topics (including bathroom/gender discussions)
Gun/Gun rights/2nd ammendment discussions
Animal treatment - Including news articles about Pit Bulls
Mass shootings/Bombings/Terrorist attacks

Any other thread designed to advance ones belief structure, feelings, or agenda.

Discussions about religion can be had here

Celebrity Deaths need to be discussed here

Updating this sticky:

All threads regarding the current wave of sexual harassment news are no longer allowed to be discussed in current events. Due to the sensitive and often political nature surrounding the issue. These need to be had in the appropriate forums. Any threads started surrounding this subject will be deleted.
