Suggested changes[edit]

  • need to change Wikiproject Sex to Wikiproject sexology and sexuality, as well as wording.
  • Graphic of female and male sex symbol will probably not be well received, and should be changed. Although it is just symbolic, we will receive complaints that sex is jnot just about two people, and that it is not just about a male and a female either. Sexuality is much broader, including same-sex relationships as well as polyamorous relationships.
  • Also, I think template should be somewhat smaller

How about a picture of some lube? The Wednesday Island 03:09, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

The links have been changed to point to sexology and sexuality, but shouldn't the template be renamed too to Template:WP Sexuality or similar? --Strait 17:34, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

I think some sort of abstracted image of two figures embraced sexually would be the best. Figures drawn in such a way as to be totally without gender. If I were an artist I would make the SVG myself.--Hfarmer 19:20, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Addition of parameter[edit]

{{Editprotected}} I would like to request that the following line be added to the banner:

|MAIN_CAT            = WikiProject Sexology and sexuality articles

I have created the appropriate category, and have been cleaning up categories in the WikiProject. I'm requesting this move to help expedite BLP referencing, with the aid of DASHBot. Thanks! Clifflandis (talk) 21:09, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Graphic change[edit]

Per the earlier comments on this page by Atomaton and the discussion at Portal talk:Sexuality, there seems to be consensus to change the graphic being used for this project. The current graphic is a limited heteronormative representation of sexuality that evokes weird connotations with the male symbol penetrating the female symbol. I propose changing the current graphic to File:Sexual orientation - 4 symbols.svg until something more appropriate can be found. I particularly like Hfarmer's suggestion of an abstracted image of two figures embraced, but was unable to find anything that would work at Commons. Gobōnobō + c 20:39, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

Please change the IMAGE_LEFT field to use Sexual orientation - 4 symbols.svg instead of Sexes-planetary-sym-dimcolors.svg.

Done --Redrose64 (talk) 20:53, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

Is animal sexuality within the scope of this WikiProject?[edit]

This template claims that this WikiProject is intended to "improve the coverage of human sexuality on Wikipedia", but not all articles about sexuality on Wikipedia are about humans. I think the template's wording should be changed in order to reflect this. Jarble (talk) 15:42, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Since you already changed Wikipedia:WikiProject Sexology and sexuality/About to include non-human animal sexuality within the scope of that project, I can only assume that you are asking here instead of changing the template yourself because you can't change the template due to it being locked (full-protected).

If animal sexuality isn't within the scope of WikiProject Sexuality, then which WikiProject does it belong to? (Also, I decided to revert my edits - I should have discussed this issue on the talk page before making these edits myself.) Jarble (talk) 16:40, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
I don't think you should have reverted yourself. I approve of you adding "animal sexuality" (as in non-human animal sexuality). And as for asking WikiProject Sexuality about it, you aren't likely to get a reply since the project is significantly inactive. Flyer22 (talk) 16:50, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
