Image Tagging Image:Bruce King Hallock.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Bruce King Hallock.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then there needs to be an argument why we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then it needs to be specified where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then one should be added. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media qualifies as fair use, consider reading fair use, and then use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other media, consider checking that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box.

Fair use rationale for Image:Bush finger.png[edit]

Warning sign This file may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Bush finger.png. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Orgasm article[edit]

Hello, Antialias. I had to revert you on this because it's not just feminist theories that are in that section. And describing them as "popular" is WP:Original research. Further, the section is also about the male function of orgasm, so removing the "Male function" heading was improper. Flyer22 (talk) 20:26, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

There is no information about the male function of orgasm in that section; it is an argument on why the female orgasm is more difficult to achieve. Antialias (talk) 23:24, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
It is also about the male role -- the male function in relation to reproductive success. And the function of the male orgasm in relation to reproductive success is not all fact. Some of the beliefs about it are theory. And keep in mind that the Male function section, like the Female function section, can be expanded. I'll make a point of expanding it at a later date. All of that is why it's best not to merge it with the Female function section. Flyer22 (talk) 00:34, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
And moving the material the way you did, as shown in this revert by me, is inappropriate. Not only are the reasons that women have difficulty reaching orgasm, in general or compared to men's, already covered in the In females section, as well as the Dysfunction and satisfaction section, what you moved higher as a subsection of the Achieving orgasm section are mostly theories. Not facts. And they are theories relating to evolutionary reasons for orgasm, which is why they belong where they are. Flyer22 (talk) 00:53, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
The section is primarily about the relative difficulty of reaching female orgasm. You are obviously a smart person and far more well-read in pan-gender sexual studies than I, but to call this section of contention the "male function" of orgasm makes you look like a damn fool. Since as you state, the section is mostly devoid of fact, I would settle for removing the section entirely. Antialias (talk) 21:34, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
I've already explained what the section is about, and that the relative difficulty of reaching female orgasm is already covered elsewhere. And the reason we don't remove the section altogether is because theories on orgasm are allowed in the Orgasm article. It's not like some other parts of the article don't also propose theories, or rather hypotheses. But this section is specifically about theories in relation to biological/evolutionary reasons for orgasm, mostly with regard to the reproductive process. And it quite clearly doesn't only relate to female orgasm.
I am not sure why the section heading bothers you so much that you have deviated from your typical sporadic editing pattern. But since you do not agree with me about what not to do with this section, I am taking this matter to the talk page. You should discuss it there without reverting again, as the point of doing so is to reach WP:Consensus and to avoid WP:Edit warring such as this. As part of the WP:BRD process, you should have taken this matter to the talk page once you were reverted and it was explained to you why you were reverted. But I recognize that you are not as familiar with Wikipedia ways as I am, and that maybe I should have proposed an alternate title or other formatting to you so that we can reach a compromise. I am still willing to compromise with you on this. One compromise I already proposed is that I will expand the Male function section with more information about male orgasm. But it is difficult to add theories about the reproductive purpose of male orgasm without talking about females as well. And vice versa. Flyer22 (talk) 02:34, 11 June 2012 (UTC)
Update: As a quick-fix compromise, I took away the Male function and Female function subheadings for the time being. Flyer22 (talk) 07:10, 11 June 2012 (UTC)
Additionally, the word "orgasm" being added to the heading was unneeded because, per Wikipedia:Manual of Style#Section headings, "Headings should not refer redundantly to the subject of the article, or to higher-level headings, unless doing so is shorter or clearer." Specification isn't needed in that case because it's clear that the section is about orgasms. Flyer22 (talk) 20:32, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
