Can you please be more specific about this and this? WikiProjects are meant to highlight the work of WP members; they're not directly linked to the person that the article is about. For example, one may have a WP LGBT Studies tag and not be gay. Thus I don't believe it raises any BLP issues. Zigzig20s (talk) 23:27, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

User:Zigzig20s: I guess I'm more cagey about BLP than you. Personally, I think there is an issue with those templates: I think the way they're used on the talk pages you added them to is effectively to imply 'this person is a bigot' without saying so, which would be a BLP violation. I think we should be extremely reluctant to tag biographies of living people with that template unless plainly directly related to the subject of discrimination. (For what it's worth, WP:DISCRIMINATION says its scope includes articles closely and explicitly related to the topic of discrimination (my emphasis) - it seems to me that biographies of people who have been accused of making discriminatory comments falls outside that scope.) And as it happens, I do have similar concerns about the use of {{WikiProject LGBT}} as a way of implying someone's gay without directly saying it.
But this is just my opinion, and maybe I'm misinterpreting how the templates are used. If you think they belong on those articles, feel free to restore them, and I'll create a discussion on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Discrimination to see if we can get some other views.

Yes, I think you're wrong, but I understand why. Btw, they have not been accused of making racial remarks. They made them. They sent those e-mails and then acknowledged those e-mails. Thus I believe it will be good to get more editors from WP Discrimination to expand those referenced sections in the relevant/tagged articles. As for WP LGBT Studies, it's not about outing at all. Gay icons (who are often straight) get tagged, as editors from that WikiProject are more likely to expand/work on those articles.Zigzig20s (talk) 00:03, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
