Is this academically recognised? Can we have some hard academic references for this article please.Dr Joe Kiff 05:18, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
Apparently, current research on this subject is limited to staring, pointing, and rude laughter, or for those who can't be that honest, xenophobic appeals to our fears of those different from us. It's not too different from the way homosexuality in modern Western culture was treated until the late 20th century. See: Wikipedia's talk page on the subject, where it's been called both a disease and a simple phase of fashionable adolecent rebellion, despite the absurd contradiction.
The voraphile community itself isn't helping matters by refusing to engage their critics. Many are hiding their identities in the workplace. Others avoid speaking of the genuine problems the community faces, presenting it as a sunny utopia for an often minsunderstood minority ala Charles Xavier's school for the gifted.
I'd guess at this point, it's impossible to create an unbiased look into the matter. Emotions on both sides are running too high, with each acting as though the future of civilization depends on eliminating this deviance from the norm or embracing all the forms our sexuality may take. Just try to get a rational word in edgewise, much less ask any questions...
As for this article itself, it's a fairly accurate portrait of how the vore community often divides itself, even if poorly presented. I admit to being shocked it wasn't censored. Already this site has more credibility than the main wiki.
- a voraphile and (hopefully) soon to be psych major.
